Root stretching & contouring is on the up and up so we thought we'd give you a quick explanation so that you're not left in the dark.
Root stretching is a technique where one blends out the natural root color. Why? Well, this gets rid of any obvious regrowth. Months later, the colouration looks natural and blended. First we paint on the color as in a normal root touch up and then we weave out sections of the hair like balayage to “stretch” the root colouration around a quarter or even halfway down the hair.
Contour coloring or “contourage” works in a similar way to the make-up technique. It's a technique specifically used to accentuate or soften facial features. We use darker tones to add depth to areas that you want to appear softer or more drawn in, and lighter shades to enhance other areas or make them appear brighter. Your hair surrounds your face and can make a huge difference to how you see your face shape.
The most balanced face shape is oval, so the concept of colour contouring is designed to balance out a variety of face shapes to make them appear more oval. Come in and see us and we can create a colour formula just for you.
Best haircut I have ever had x
Everytime I go to Aoki I experience TLC for my curly hair. Jenni's skills, guidance and knowledge have helped me to embrace my curly hair. I finally have the curls I've always dreamed of thanks to the staff at Aoki. I highly recommend Aoki if you want to embrace your curls too.
Jenni is a curl guru. If you have curly hair - go see Jenni! Her skills are too level. But she is also the warmest woman and such a delight to be in the salon with. I trust her so much with my hair and I always have the best time when I’m here!!! Totally worth the interstate travel for! 🥰🥰🥰
Went back for a cut after a year and its always amazing! Love how my hair looks 😍 Thanks so much Jenni 😊
Jenni is the best curly hair cutter/stylist in Perth! Jenni has a great staff and salon which makes for a very enjoyable salon experience. I have been looking for a curly hair specialist and Aoki is the perfect solution.
From the moment you walk in and receive Jenni’s personal attention to the moment you leave, you feel special and pampered. Having very curly hair I need and expert cutter and Jenni is definitely that. Always look forward to my visits, the atmosphere and the laughs. Jenni and her girls know how to look after you!
Review by Shiree, Raving New Client: Having moved across from Melbourne a few months ago, I have struggled to find a salon that I felt understood my needs, or for that matter even cared to listen. Finally, Aoki Hair caught my attention by google search. From the moment I contacted the salon, they accommodated me with a booking and their service already was a breath of fresh air. Then I meet Jen for my restyle cut. Wow! Such charisma, this woman is an amazing soul! And, I have seriously just encountered the best hair cut thanks to her. Jen cut my hair exactly like I wanted it and so much the same as the photos I'd shown her of what I was wanting. Abi did my colour and to say I'm more than happy with the results is an understatement. I feel 10 years younger and finally found my new hairdressing team. I drive more than an hour to get there and it's worth every moment. Anyone considering trying Aoki Hair, do yourself a favour and book. Couldnt thank you enough Jen and Abi. I'll be seeing you next time!
I always feel like an absolute curly goddess leaving this place. Refreshing to find a senior stylist who actually listens and has the skills bring to life your wildest curly girl vision. Jenni is such burst of vibrant energy and genuinely cares about how her clients feel. I drive an hour to have my hair cut here and it is totally worth it, wouldn't dream of going anywhere else in Perth. I've had my curls cut on 3 different continents and Jenni is a mile ahead of the rest and she manages to cut curls in half the time of any other curly hair specialist that I have see. All confidence and class. Highly recommended!
They are just amazing! I couldn't imagine going anywhere else, both colour and curly cuts are amazing
Truly an amazing experience. I was a little sceptical as I haven’t had a haircut in over a year. Jenni made me feel super comfortable as soon as I sat in the chair. She took the lead and gave an amazing haircut for my curly hair. Very friendly and professional staff. Price is very affordable for the service they provide. Very happy with my hair. Highly recommend if you have curly hair. Thank you Aoki hair😁
Coming to get a haircut at Aoki is my pamper day. I get great service, professionalism, lots of laughter and my hair ALWAYS looks fabulous when I walk out. This place is a hive of activity but I always feel like I’m the queen bee 🐝, everyone attending to my needs 😊
Absolutely loved my visit to Aoki. Their staff and services are amazing and made me feel so comfortable as a first time client. Jenny is wonderful and shared all about my hair type and styles that would suit my face shape. I felt confident to let her go to town on my hair and I couldn't be more happier. My hair has never felt this healthy, soft and bouncy before. Highly recommend anyone with curly hair wanting to embrace their true curl 🙌
Genuinely the best haircut I have ever had. I'm 41, so I've had a few, and I have never felt so seen as I was by Jenni and her team. I week later and I'm still oozing joy around my new hair.
Came to Aoki to get my curls back and yes Jenni and the girls brought them back in full swing!!! Had a lovely time meeting Jenni and chatting! She is so passionate about the curls and it is shown in the results! Best haircut I’ve had. Wonderful experience. Very professional. Great curl education and would recommend to anyone wanting to try get their curls back! Worth it! I love my cut! Thanks Jenni! Appreciate it! 😊
I was in today for Tahllia to colour my hair, this is the third time I’ve been in the salon, first time for Jenni to cut my hair, which has been amazing and really compliments my curl - I always thought I only had wavy hair. Tahllia has coloured my hair the last two times and she’s done an amazing job both times and I received plenty of compliments on the colour and curl. This a very happy and bubbly salon that makes the experiences even more enjoyable.
The curly hair queen 👑 I am so grateful that I found Aoki hair and jenni, her charisma, energy, knowledge with curls and professionalism is just something else 😍 I have struggled with my curls for sooo many years going to so many different hairdressers only noticing that they have no idea what they are doing with curly hair and always walking out looking like a poodle 🤦♀️ Jenni and the team at Aoki hair has brought my hair back to its natural life and I am LOVING wearing my hair curly again after many years of straightening as it just wasn’t sitting right. Now it’s perfect! They also recommended me the best products for my hair that is so easy to use on an everyday basis. So grateful ❤️ Can’t recommend more to my curly hair peeps if I tired! 5+++ stars ❤️ Keep doing you!
Highly recommend Aoki Hair. Jenni and all of the staff so professional, welcoming and friendly. Have been a regular client for approx 12 months and have been very happy with how my hair has been cut and styled each time. Best hair styling I have ever had for my curly hair. I walk out feeling wonderful! Each time I have been I have seen each client walk out with fabulous hair styling, all ages, both men and women. Can absolutely recommend Jenni and everyone. Thank you to you all at Aoki Hair!
Jenni and her wonderful team have been my go-to for curly haircuts in Perth for the last couple of years, and every time I leave happy with my choice to “splurge” a little on myself with a haircut that makes me feel confident and stylish. After a lifetime of mediocre cuts elsewhere, Aoki has given me greater appreciation for how good my hair *can* look with the right curly cut and some guidance on tools and styling.
I love how I feel every time I leave this place!! Would highly recommend to any curly hair person or even just a person with hair! Jenni and staff always treat me with kindness and always answer my questions with enthusiasm. I have been with Aoki hair for 4 years now and I won’t be going elsewhere!
Absolutely amazing, I’m not one to invest money on a hair cut. But sooooo worth it! I have never had a hair cut like this before. Really friendly staff and amazing skills in cutting! Definitely recommend if you have curly hair and never feel comfortable with your hair. They helped me learn how to style it at home!
Saw Jenny today for a much needed full restyle of my curls. She discussed different lengths and what might suit best and double checked it was ok to get rid of all the dead parts…which was a lot of length! She did a wonderful job. Super happy with the shape and length and feel like I can start growing it again from a place of health now! Thanks Jenny! So nice to have a place I can trust for my curls and happily recommend to anyone with waves or curls.
I found Aoki Hair when I started my curly hair journey; it was the best decision. Jenni and the team are all fantastic, with exceptional knowledge of styling, colour and how to cut my hair to get the most out of my curls. I highly recommend the team at Aoki (curly hair or not), and I have always left feeling well looked after and LOVING my hair.
I loved my curly haircut experience and thank you for the curly hair style training it’s made such a difference to how my curls look. I really appreciated your genuine interest in your clients and the time and effort you put into making my experience in your salon a delight, thank you so much!
Truely Wonderful experience! I have been following Aoki hair on Instagram and finally got the opportunity to visit Jenny and her team who were professional, friendly and informative. Jenny coloured my hair, cut it according to my curl (this was a first for me) and she showed me how to work with the product simply to enhance my natural curls!!!!.I left feeling really emotional that my curly hair was understood. Subsequent wash/dries have been so effortless! Thank you Jenny for bring back the bounce back to my curly hair!
These guys make you look and feel amazing! I loved my curly cut. I just wish I'd had somewhere fabulous to go after getting it done, rather than just home! Highly recommend this salon.
Love love love! My hair always looks so gorgeous and refreshed after a trip to Aoki. Despite living on the other side of Australia, I intentionally plan my trips back to Perth to coincide with when I need my hair cut so I can get it done at Aoki. Jenny and the team are so friendly and I have referred several of my friends here after the amazing transformation that my hair has seen since I started seeing them 💇♀️
Best curly cuts in Perth. Such a lovely and talented salon
Best hair cut I’ve ever had. After struggling with thick curly/frizzy hair all my life I started playing with the curly girl method about a year ago. The missing piece of my puzzle was a good hair cut and now I love my long curly hair. Jenny is so effervescent and there is a lovely vibe in the salon. Thank you!
You can determine a talented hairstylist with curly hair. The story common to all with curly hair is the many horrendous cuts, and maybe one, two or three good cuts in a lifetime? We moved from afar and the one thing I dreaded the most was finding a new hairstylist...it is a stress for one with curly hair! After one bad haircut in our new location, I tried Jenni at Aoki and was very impressed. Jenni is well versed in curly hair cuts, and besides my own, I would certainly entrust her with any type of hair...she is a keeper! Her staff is very friendly and the environment is very relaxed and inviting. I highly recommend Aoki Hair.
Just started using this salon and love the curly hairdressing skills by Jenni and all her staff. They are super friendly, organised and so willing to teach me how to embrace the way my hair wants to go! Also Taliah is a complete winner when it comes to colour.
I love getting my hair done with Jenni and her team. A beautiful salon and love getting my curls looked after at Aoki. I highly recommend ❤️
Highly recommend Aoki Hair for anyone with curls. Jenny and her staff are amazing and the environment of the store is lovely. They make you feel so comfortable. Jennys experience with curls definitely shows through each cut. 10/10
Great experience! My curly hair looks fantastic every time I get a haircut! Jenny is very kind and a great hairdresser
Fabulous salon with such great staff and the best head massage! Jenny knows how to cut my curls perfectly - I have lots of different types of curls and my hair feels and looks amazing when I leave her salon :) highly recommend for those curly girls out there!
Every time I come to Aoki hair I leave the salon feeling like a million bucks. The ladies are always so welcoming and friendly, giving the best hair care advice and service. Once you come here you won’t want to go to any other salon, guaranteed. Thank you ladies for always making my curls beautiful!! 💕
I've been coming to Aoki for all my curly hair cuts for the last two years or so and I've always had a great experience. All the staff are incredibly friendly and Jenni always cuts me layers to build volume and shape. My last cut today is no exception, my cut and diffuse looks great!
Jenni is a miracle worker. She turned my sad frizzy poodle ears into healthy bouncy Shirley Temple curls in just 1 hour. She is more than happy to answer Curly Hair questions, and beyond being downright professional at what she does, Jenni is also a warm creative spirit. Absolutely delighted with her work.
Greeted with a smile and a laugh. Had a dry curly cut, shampoo and diffuse. Such awesome knowledge of varying curl types and I always leave feeling uplifted and fabulous. Thankyou 💕💕💕
Absolutely love how every time I come in here, I leave with new appreciation for my hair and the ladies that work at Aoki! Jenny seems to know what I want even when I don't - and the conversation is an added bonus. Everyone is warm and friendly, making it a great experience. Would definitely recommend no matter where you are in your curly journey! ❤️
Just went here today, I had an absolute ball! Jenni and her staff were delightful and did such an awesome job with my hair. I came in with a mop of oily dense hair and left with beautiful light curls that got compliments all day. I can’t thank Jenni enough, she’s a wealth of knowledge on all things curly :)
After several bad haircuts of my (very curly and unruly) hair, I finally gave Jenni and her team a go. And I'm glad I did! Jenni knows what she's doing with curls. She took the time to understand what I wanted, and she delivered. The team of ladies there are lovely. I'll be back! Cara
What an amazing Experience!,,,From the moment you step into Aoki Hair there is a feeling of fun, warmth and acceptance. I had been looking forward to my appointment for over 3 months and it was worth the wait..with smiles all round, teas and treats served on an Italian tray , forms filled in, jenni arrives. We consulted fo a while exchanging photos and Jenni went to town!, I got a fringe.. The shampoo was great and the price good considering I was in there for over 2 hours. Jenni is passionate about what she does and it shows!, I will be back
Before Aoki I tried numerous other salons to disastrous results. My hair was a constant unworkable frizzy mess. I was quite fortunate when I happened across an acquaintance with the most wonderful curly hair I've ever seen, who recommended their hair dresser. The staff are all wonderful, the hair wash is relaxing, the tea is lovely. But most importantly they do a damn good job. I always leave delighted with the results.
