Samir Samaali at Le Garage Hairdressing
(02) 9319 4677
Recently opened ‘Le Garage’ is a Parisian-style full-service hair salon and creative space, located in Surry Hills, just a stones throw away from Central Station. Director and owner Samir Samaali has 21 years’ experience in some of the world’s best salons (including 3D Salon in Paris and Wildlife in Sydney), and 15 years’ editorial experience for fashion magazines in Paris, New York and Sydney. Samir’s first love is hair design, so much so that he pioneered a cutting technique he calls “Hair Sculpture”. Using hair and scalps as his artistic materials, he transforms ordinary buzz cuts into canvases covered in designs, much like tattoos or prints. Inspiration for his designs comes from tribal art, Arabic calligraphy, exotic plants, Japanese fades, flowers, spider webs and even fish scales! Samir is also a maestro of the classics, with 20’s style structured bobs, and mens cuts from the 40’s featuring heavily in his work. From classics cuts to dreadlocks, his versatility knows no end.
