Balga has launched a new hairdresser in the CBD, and it’s the latest in a series of seasonal hairdo changes in the area.
The new salon in the corner of Balga and Market Streets is located on the corner and is a joint venture between Balga, Laundromat and Mellow Men, two independent hairdyers.
In a statement, the shop said it was the first in Sydney to offer seasonal hair styles, with the aim of making hairdos for different seasons and seasons of the year more attractive and more visually appealing.
It’s been a long time coming for us, Balga founder Sami Alhaj, who is from Yemen, told News24.
We wanted to bring the most authentic hairdresses to Sydney, he said.
The new salon is a partnership between Balgas and Mankaras, and the duo hopes to bring a little bit of the Yemen in the look.
Balga hairdorists work on the weekends, so customers are more likely to be out and about in the market or the neighbourhood, he added.
Laundromats are usually closed on weekdays, but the shop says they are open on weekends.
As part of the deal, Balgas will provide the salon with a range of products for customers to choose from, including shampoo, conditioner, and styling cream.
Mellow Men hairdiers also sell hair products.
“Balga has always worked with international hairdylists, so we were really looking forward to partnering with them to develop a range that would be more representative of the Australian hairdyles,” Alhavas said.
“We’re very excited about the opportunities for the customers that Balga will be bringing to Sydney.”
Balga’s new salon will open in the next few months, and customers will be able to pick their hair style from three different lengths and styles: long, short and a combination.
Skipper Sami was surprised to learn that the hairdonas would be seasonal, with a big emphasis on the colour.
“[The salon] is just a part of our commitment to Sydney hairdoes,” he said, adding that the salon is an example of Balgas commitment to creating a global product range.
I’ve always loved hairdoos, he told News21.
There are just a lot of different things that Balgas hairdors can do, Sami said.
He said he’d love to see a range available in different styles.
He added that it’s been about five years since the shop opened and he’s happy to see the company continuing to expand its international reach.
