Sitting pretty on William Street, Paddington, SALON X lives within a bijou terrace with bright, lively interiors and its own brand of buzz. The first hair salon to open here in 2005, William Street has since become a true style destination known for its colour, charm and eclectic mix of fashion, beauty, food and interior names.
Clients come for SALON X’s reputation for excellence but return for the personalised service. Think: a cult following of loyal, discerning locals who love and appreciate the warm, intimate vibe — and consistently great hair.
The SALON X signature is brought to life by a carefully curated mix of Vidal Sassoon-schooled master cutters known for precise, face-flattering styles, Wella-trained expert colourists who’ve seen every kind of colour challenge, and a fresh batch of next-gen artists on the rise. Many of the team have been with The VALONZ Group since the very beginning and it’s their technical skill, deep experience and innate understanding of customer service that is at the heart of what we do.
