The shingle out the front exclaims “You’re the star, sweetheart!” and this salon certainly lives up to that promise. Positioned across two adjoining terraces and located in the creative ’Soho-like’ area of Darlinghurst, Brad Ngata Hair Direction has forged an international reputation over the past decade. Unlike other salons, there’s no battery-hen formula here. Full length Phillippe Stark mirrors give you a sense of your own ‘star quality’,and puctuating the space are a host of quirky touches that bring playfulness and soul to the place: mirror mosaic contrasts with rich caverns of natural sandstone; fishtanks are suspended from the ceiling; refreshments are served from delicate gold rimmed porcelain; iconic images add comfort, humanity and a spiritual dimension to the place. Surprisingly, with so much to stimulate a client, they often comment that they find it peaceful and refreshingly down to earth.
