Jana DJ Absinthe
When did you first come to Furr? A long time ago..!
What keeps you coming back? Every single hair cut I've had has been purrfect! Before coming to Furr, heaps of other salons made my hair fall out during the bleaching process. At Furr, they are very careful with this and not once has my hair fallen out! They also use great products and explain clearly what they are used for, which helps for styling your hair after the cut. The hair dye is also vegan! The colour and cut stays for months on end, and find myself coming back every time!! My hair also doesn't dry out, and stays super healthy!! The service is super awesome too! Would never trade Furr for anywhere else. Thank you everyone at Furr :')

When did you first come to Furr? Ooo um, over 10 years ago. I was doing my own hair but I wanted some amazing colour. From memory I wanted to look like a peacock. Needless to say that aim was met.
What keeps you coming back? What wouldn't? It's a creative hub and it doesn't matter how many years I've been going I'm always happy with whatever version of my mane I end up with.
