Academie Salon

Treat yourself to a relaxing hair cut in a 19th-century chapel building.

Found inside an 1880s-built former chapel, Acadèmie Salon is a neighbourhood hairdresser that aims to bring out the best look for you, rather than give you an extreme TV-style makeover. The Annandale salon is run by Mikele Simone and Richi Grisillo, whose team of stylists makes you feel like a rockstar.

Speaking of which, the salon has been known to cater to genuine celebs. But don't let that put you off, as whoever walks through the archway entrance is treated with the same premium haircare and expert advice as those with a public profile.

Like many salons, pricing is a reflection of the stylist's level of skill and experience, but you can expect to pay between $100–120 for a hair cut (including wash, massage and blow dry) and between $90–200 for a colour treatment. Keratin treatments, balayage, bridal appointments and blow drys are all par for the course here, too.
