Step out as a confident blonde. Be the best blonde you can be. Your choice whether that is ombre, balayage, sunlights, babylights, sombre, beach hair or pastel and vivid hair or let us help you decide. Get yourself some Insta worthy hair!
Tired of the same old, same old or just not getting the blonde you desire from your current stylist? Feel it's time for a change? Stop leaving the salon disappointed. Nothing is 'too hard' or 'beyond help'. Everything can be fixed and a plan put in place. Don't settle for mediocre blonde, bad colours, lifeless hair and breakage. Let your hair be the best it can be.
Birdie's unique pricing structure reflects the time spent on your hair and the amount of colour used. This structure ensures minimal colour wastage and best value for money for you as the client. Therefore when we quote you, it is an estimate only and will depend on the grams of colour used on the day. For the safety of the environment, we avoid product wastage where possible and recycle our foil and boxes to keep our planet clean for future generations.
