Since cutting my hair off just over a year ago, my once six monthly routine of trimming my own
hair (wet, brush, sewing scissors #fancy) became an every six-weeks visit to the hairdresser.
Before I left London I had popped into Hershesons and explained that my hair was not going to
be chopped for the next few months, and they cut it accordingly a little shorter at the back so that
it wouldn’t thicken up too fast. But after 3 months on the road my hair needed a good seeing to. I
was really pleased to discover Papillon Hair in Paddington, here in Sydney. The name comes from
the butterflies in the black gate outside.
Situated down a little alley, it has a French feel to it – thanks to Deborah, the owner’s, ‘love affair
with Paris’ – and it’s beautiful interior (and exterior). Papillon Hair is all about giving a one-on-
one experience, and using Aussie brands, such as OM and Kevin Murphy she gave my hair the
reboot it needed.
