An award-winning, sophisticated hair salon in South Yarra’s cosmopolitan Toorak Road, Wieselmann is known for doing the best blondes in Melbourne. Having been in business for over 40 years and still going strong, Weiselmann definitely know a thing or two about how to create the perfect hair salon experience that will have you coming back time and time again.
Stepping inside the bustling salon at 9:30am on a Saturday morning, the first thing you notice about Wieselmann is their stylish clientele; the local fashion set with the perfect shades of blonde for their complexion, each matched with a killer blow dry. The interior is sleek, with modern black leather chairs, polished chrome finishes and floor to ceiling mirrored walls. It’s light, bright and radiates sophistication.
As I’m ushered to my seat by the warm and approachable reception staff, I order a (much needed) latté and some biscotti. I’m handed the salon’s little black book of hair inspo to peruse; it’s page after page of what can only be described as the ultimate edit of ‘cool girl’ hair - the latest hairstyles from the likes of It-Girls Margot Robbie, Lara Bingle, and Blake Lively, to name a few.
Dee, one for the salon owners and expert hair stylists, warmly greets me. Feeling inspired, we talk through possible cut options and decide on a short and sharp, ‘of the moment’ cut. Next up is my colour consultation with Di, the salon owner and my colourist, who specialises in blondes. I must confess, I always get a bit nervous having my colour done by someone who hasn’t done it before because, as many blondes know, it can be tricky to get it right. After speaking to Di though, I have no doubt I’m in very safe (and highly skilled) hands.
The staff are attentive and often come around to offer further refreshments (I order another latté while my colour develops). After my colour, comes my cut with Dee - her precision and attention to detail is impressive. She finishes with a modern, polished but textured blow-dry, leaving me ready to start the weekend.
Wieselmann offers a full range of professional hair services from colouring and cutting to styling and treatments. The salon also stocks expert hair care and styling lines by Schwarzkopf and Kérastase to keep your hair feeling and looking its best between salon visits.
