Our hair is something that we all love to invest our time in, in order to look and feel fantastic.
It is therefore essential that we are able to find a place in which we feel totally comfortable, where we have complete faith in the staff who ultimately hold our appearance in their hands, that’s our philosophy here at the Award winning KDelmé Hairdressing.
What is KDelmé (pronounced K Dell May) Hairdressing about?

“I have been a client of KDelmé for over 3 years. I am always pleased with the professionalism that each stylist has towards my hair. Kaarina is an absolute “whiz” with my colour and I always walk out the door with a smile on my face. As a professional actor it’s important that my hair always looks good. KDelmé help me to attain that goal. Thanks guys!”
Actor – Matilda
“I have been a client at KDelmé for two years now and cannot recommend them highly enough. As an actor, I need to feel confident with my stylist, and the advice and service I have received has been consistently fantastic. Kaarina’s skill, professionalism and expertise are unsurpassed. But more importantly, her dedication and genuine care has helped me to achieve a look I’m always happy with. ”
“I travel all the way from Pyrmont to go to this salon! Yes, that is how good their head hairdresser and owner Kaarina is. I highly recommend them!”
“Hi Kaarina, I thought I should let you know that I am over the moon with the haircut you gave me a few weeks ago. I know you did something slightly different to normal so whatever it was, it is great! ”
“I would like to thank Helen (I think, red hair) for the cut yesterday evening. It is probably the best hair cut I have had in a while, so please send her my kindest thanks you’s.”
“Loving my hair! It was exactly wanted I wanted but even better then I imagined! ❤”
“I came into your salon to have Global Keratin done to my hair, as you probably know I was really unsure of what to expect when getting this service but I’d like to say a huge thank you for the quality of service and the friendliness of the staff. I was also very impressed with the stylist that did the keratin to my hair, she was very professional. Over all the result of the service is amazing especially after the first wash, thanks for all your professionalism and I will be back for more in a few months.”
“Thank you Emma for my fantastic new hairstyle and colour. I haven’t stopped smiling. KDelmé, you have never failed me from the first time I walked in about 6 years ago and Kaarina first cut my hair, to today.
Thank you so much. The tea was delicious and so was the freckle.”
What is Sustainable Salons Australia?
One of the biggest issue we have within out industry is the huge amount of waste, these include things like loads aluminium (foil and colour tubes), paper, cardboard, plastics (shampoo/conditioner bottles), excess chemicals and a lot of water.
Over the last 12months we have been slowly changing our whole salon over to a more environmental friendly system, with the changes in our salon taps reducing our water use by over 60%, the current transition from halogen to led lights and finally changing to Sustainable Salons Australia.
What Sustainable Salons Australia does is collect up to 95% of all the salon waste, and then what it does with it is what makes this so amazing.
