A hairdresser who delivers is hard to come by. So many people walk out of the salon after hours of colouring and toning, blow drying and styling looking disappointed with a poor recreation of what was actually asked. It's all well and good to shrug your shoulders and think 'well hair grows' but for ladies in particular, it can be a real blow to the wallet and self-esteem.
To help end the struggle of bad hair on good people head to Emphasis Belgian Gardens in Townsville next time you feel your look needs a change. This place is great. The cost is what you would expect to pay at most salons but this place offers an amazing first client deal. For $147 first time visitors will get a total makeover package that includes a colour cut and however many foils or highlights a person could fit on their head. Normally such a deal is either too good to be true or cost way over any budget.
The salon itself is easily accessible along the main Bundock St road with car parking available just behind the place plus along the streets. The space is quite small but never feels cramped. They seem to have mastered fitting in hairdressing chairs, shampoo station and a stockroom while keeping enough space for the customers.
The hairdressers themselves are lovely who are more than happy to talk with you to help achieve the look you are after. Honestly, the staff here are the most patient ladies who will sit with you and explain what colours and tones will work best.
Emphasis in Townsville is definitely worth a visit for your hair appointment, so give it a go and leave a comment below.
