Within an hour of walking around Bondi: you'll notice that residents (and wannabe residents) have a few things in common. First, they're uncannily fit. Second, they're clothed like they just stepped off a catwalk. Third, their hair screams I-just-got-out-of-bed-took-a-quick-dip-in-the-surf-oh-and-what-do-you-know-my-locks-are-now-perfectly-tousled.
What you might be missing is that these effortlessly elegant beach-haired peeps probably stopped by Hair Cartel. As one of Bondi's hippest hair salons, this place has the Bondi blow-wave mastered. By that we mean, they know how to make your hair look like you've just stepped out of the surf — even if you arrived on the morning train from Dubbo.
Along with this mystical ability, they also take a good deal of care with treating each and every client like an individual. Expect to meet smart, friendly stylists who'll put you at ease while turning you into a model. Brand new clients score a 20% discount and there's a bunch of products in stock from L’Oreal Professionnel and Mr Smith.
