Mousey Brown

Often referred to as mousy brown, it’s a light to medium ‘ash’ brown that can sometimes have red undertones. A good hairdresser will recognise the difference between this and a true mousy blonde (which has a much more red tone to it) and be able to colour your hair to create a rich chestnut or mahogany brown.

Neel Loves Curls

Finding the right hairdresser is tricky enough – but when you’ve got curly locks, it can be a quest of epic proportions. Folk with luscious kinks and coils spend years barber-hopping, salon-sampling and enduring innumerable smile-through-the-tears moments as new hairdressers fumble with their tangled mop.

Brighton-born Neel Morley is a curl guru. He opened Australia’s first curly-centric salon, and his clients – or ‘curlfriends’ as he calls them – travel interstate (and even internationally) for his services.

His cosy spot is above Quick Brown Fox on Brunswick Street in Fitzroy, and he books out faster than you can say ‘frizz is just a curl waiting to happen’. Call or text his work phone (0451 001 433) or check his Instagram page for last-minute availabilities. Neel’s ethos is one of community, and he regularly conducts events to thank nurses who cared for him during his illness, and the donors of his life-saving organ. He also teaches people with curly hair how to take better care of their locks at curly hair salon
