If you are looking for a professional yet relaxed hair salon experience - look no further than Canvas Hair! Alby, the business owner is a highly experience hair dresser who manages to interpret my hair concepts into something better than what I was imagineing. He has a genuine passion for his work. Alby's intuition doesn't just go as far as hair dressing, but he seems to know when you are keen to have a relaxed casual chat or if you would prefer to be in your own thoughts. The salon is located in leafy Surry Hills, on the second level of a terrace house, which means you don't have people walking by staring in at you. Looking forward to my next spruce!
