Hairdresser Review: Peggy Sues at Last Chance Studio, Northbridge.

Let me introduce Bee. She is 25, nutty, cat obsessed, and a genius with scissors.

Stepping into Bee’s salon, Peggy Sues, was a very different hair experience for me. Walking through Last Chance Studios, then through a kitchen and up a winding staircase (careful not to step on the sleeping kitty!) makes you feel as though you are visiting a friend, not a hairdresser which is always a good thing!

Once seated and robed Bee and I have a chat about what I want and within 5 minutes of talking we both come to a decision… Mermaid hair*. Otherwise known as hair with lots of layers, swish and length, mermaid hair is something I have always longed for and Bee is just as excited as I am about achieving it.

She gets straight into the washing and cutting, (no messing around here) and a short while later I am a very happy lady with pretty mermaid hair. We decided not to redo my balayage, as once the layers were cut in, the colour popped out any ways. This saved me from wrecking my hair with more dye and also saved my pennies! Bee even gave me a quick lesson on how to style my new do at home. Very nice.

If you are after a salon that is comfortable, kitsch, friendly and fun then Peggy Sues Is for you.

If you prefer mood music, cups of tea and white walls then look elsewhere. Bee was previously employed with Circles Subiaco and she charges extremely low prices for the level of expertise offered.

    Bee is amazing!! She took my drab hair to fab and I’m hooked on Peggy sues now! No one else is getting their mitts on my locks!

    I’ve heard so much about this place from the Vogue forum! And everyone on the FB page raves about it… I haven’t had a cut for 6 months (for shame!) so this could be my next stop off! x

    Wow, I’ve never ever heard of this place and am quite keen to check it out! Thanks for the post!!!

  4. Whilst checking something else on the Vogue forums I checked out the Perth hairdresser thread and got all carried away with the recommendations and now find myself with a booking to go see Bee despite being happy with my current hairdresser. I’m too suggestible. I’ve closed all the forum browser tabs in case I find myself signing up for pole dancing lessons or something.

  5. (which would be a bad thing due to my coordination skills, not because it’s an inherently bad thing 😀 )

    Haha, you will have to let me know how it goes Conor! My workmate keeps asking me to try and get her an appointment via the Peggy Sue’s Facebook page, but I told her if she wants it she’s going to have to get Facebook! (She is totally opposed to FB)
