I’ve been coming here for close to 4 years and never had a bad experience. I have curly hair so it’s even better that they can work well with it! Helmet hair is definitely on my list of favourite places, couldn’t recommend it enough! 💖

Julie is an absolute magician!! I have fine dark hair and often come out deflated when getting my hair done. I went in to HELMAT for a cut and colour and came out feeling a million dollars! The service was phenomenal, the staff so lovely and friendly! The salon has such a great vibe! Such a great experience! I would certainly recommend treating yourself and booking an appointment!!

I recently moved to Darwin and worried so much about having to find a new hairdresser that I would be comfortable with colouring and cutting my hair! Helmet was the one I went for and I can happily say I’ve never had such an amazing experience as I did at Helmet yesterday. The service was beyond exceptional- if I could give more than 5 stars I would!! The stylists were so so knowledgeable and put me at ease. I loved everything about the experience and am delighted with the result of my hair! Shout out to Steph and Joy you ladies are amazing! I cannot wait to return!

Amazing experience from the moment I walked in the door. From the amazing colour service to the incredible treatment and beautiful blow dry. I have been to many hairdressers and never have I walked away feeling so happy and loving my new hair! And the prices where so reasonable for the absolutely world class experience I had. The coffee and wine where a classy touch. I would recommend Hair Helmet to anyone wanting a fantastic hairdressing experience.

Absolutely fabulous salon- was so lucky to snag a VERY last minute appointment and I am thrilled at the results. The cut and colour was just perfect and exceeded my expectations as this was my first experience there. My hair is so manageable now! Highly recommend. The entire team was lovely- Will definitely be back.

It’s a relaxing and pampering experience at Helmet Hair Studio, from the beverage menu and massage chairs, to the divine head massages…..The team are very experienced & friendly. You can relax and know your hair is in good hands! I’m always happy with the results and wouldn’t hesitate recommending Helmet Hair to anyone.

I love getting my hair done here. Trudy is amazing and knows exactly what I am needing! Their products are high quality and my healthy hair is a testament to this! I never feel rushed or like another bum on a seat!! The team are friendly and energetic and love a laugh.
I always leave with a huge smile on my face. Thank you, can’t wait to come back! Oh and their personal touch goes a long way as well! I received a little song and fuss for my birthday today and it was really heartwarming!

Can’t begin to tell you how I miss the team at Helmet. I’ve found a hairdresser down here who is good but the professionalism is not a patch on what Susan and her team offer.  Darwin peeps are luckier than they know!

I was in on Friday and Susan very patiently and carefully helped to fix a couple of consecutive bad haircuts and put some gorgeous highlights in.

Susan really took the time to listen to what I wanted and didn’t want, and was very kind and patient with me. I get quite anxious in hair salons (!) and appreciate I’m probably not the easiest customer for that reason.

I’m really so grateful that Susan took the time to explain things, and cut my hair so carefully and thoughtfully. My hair is now back exactly how I like it to be, which I didn’t think would be possible.
Helmet is a gorgeous salon, and very relaxing. Nice range of herbal teas and great massage chairs too.

I’m really happy with the results of my visit, and I finally feel like myself again after about 7-8 months of really not liking my hair at all.

Now I love it, and feel happy I trusted Susan and I’m grateful. So, just writing to say a big and sincere thank you to Susan and Helmet salon. I’ll be back.

Susan has been my hairdresser for a long time,she is that good, if I moved interstate (if she wanted to) I would pay for her to travel to where ever I was for my haircut.
