Homes To Love

This ultra-chic parlour is a cut above the rest.
For 23 years, Headcase Hair in Sydney’s haute hubbub Paddington, has been a much-loved salon for stylish Sydneysiders. The parlour has recently undergone a revamp that incorporates cutting-edge design and fabulous looks. “[We] wanted this new salon space to be a reflection of our journey, multi-layered and truly one of a kind,” say founders and hair aficionado’s Vincent Nobile and John Pulitano. And one of a kind it certainly is.
“We’ve drawn inspiration from modern cities as well as health retreats, fashion shows and nature. That’s what we wanted to represent in our salon, a worldly picture made from many layers,” says Vincent.
The duo called upon interior designer Amanda Talbot of design practice Studio Snoop (Fred’s, Coogee Pavilion, Bert’s) to help with the salon’s refurbishment. Talbot deftly blended old and new design elements incorporating antique pieces, earthy materials and artisanal and bespoke finishes to create a chic yet inviting salon.
The space has been swathed in pink and green hues with luxurious jewel-green marble contrasted against amber-specked terrazzo floors and beautifully textured putty pink walls. Custom leather-lined walnut joinery and aged brass finishes add extra layers of warmth and charm. The tranquil aesthetic continues with the arched floor-to-ceiling windows that flood the salon with light and offer views into the peaceful jade tree-filled courtyard.
Technology has been seamlessly integrated into the design with Shiatsu Air Massage Italian chairs and extra-large basins for the most comfortable washing experience. The salon also boasts reverse cycle air conditioning with an air intake system that constantly brings fresh, filtered air from the outside in – a first of its kind in any Australian salon.
The result of the revamp is a luxurious yet understated space that is the perfect backdrop for making yourself look fabulous and the divine range of products on offer.
