Stop pulling your hair out looking for a good hair stylist
Who hasn't had the experience of paying a hefty price for a hair cut, only to find that you were not satisfied with either the service or your new cut at the end of the trip?
Personally, I think that a good hair stylist who understands my needs, while providing me with personalised service is a rare gem. Somehow places that I have been to so far either came with one or the other.
Hence, I was pleasantly surprised by my visit to Medusa Hair Studio, in Toowong. I came across Medusa Hair while searching for nearby Hair Salons, and read great reviews about it. I rang up for an appointment, and the lady over the phone was really friendly and helpful. Being a university student, I needed a place where I could get a cut at a reasonable price. While the normal price for a senior stylist's cut is $65, however I was informed that Ryannon, a 4th year apprentice, is currently doing cuts for $30! This included a style cut, with a wash, blowdry and straighten finish.
Upon entering the Salon, I was greeted by name by one of the stylists, who then proceeded to offer me a beverage. They have a range of drinks from teas, coffees to hot chocolates! An added bonus I must say!
Ryannon was really professional, and always made the effort to consult me for every aspect of my desired style cut. Throughout my cut, I felt assured and comfortable with Ryannon, and never felt as though my hair was in danger. She gave a great wash and the head massage was really the best! Needless to say, I emerged from Medusa one hour later as a very happy customer!
More about Medusa: Medusa is located along Dean Street, in the suburb of Toowong. There is free parking on their premises, and 2P parking in surrounding streets if it is full. Medusa is a small salon serviced by 3 hair stylists. This makes it a more intimate and personalised experience, where you feel valued as a customer.
Current specials: All new clients get a free style cut with any colour service, saving $45! This offer is valid until 31st August. They do discounts for university students as well. I would recommend giving them a call to discuss a hair package that would suit your needs, and the staff are always happy to share any great specials with you! Lastly, do not forget to like their Facebook page for the latest offers and news.
So the next time you find yourself pulling your hair out while trying to find a good hair stylist, why not treat yourself (and your hair) to a great experience at Medusa, and let yourself be pampered by them!
