About Us

Whether it‘s a quick freshen up, a new season look or a full scale overhaul, we know how good a great hairstyle feels. And we’re all about feeling good.

At BABAR Hair we love what we do. We create professional salon results, in a relaxed, easy atmosphere: where good old fashioned hospitality with a glass of wine or beer, a coffee and biscotti, a cuddle from our salon cat and choosing your own vinyl (if you’re not digging our cool tunes already!) are all part of the experience.

We cut hair. We laugh. And we have fun. Come say hi.

Who We Are




Owner of Babar hair, Chris is the loudest one of the crew. She started her hairdressing journey in Melbourne, spending time honing her skills in London, before returning home and opening Babar Hair in October 2013.

She loves what she does. From precision cutting to creative colour, she is always up for some wicked hair vibes and a good old chat!

When she’s not on the salon floor, Chris is pestering everyone on what they have brought for lunch, playing with Betty, making new playlists or has buggered off on another holiday.




David, always up for a laugh and playing jokes on the gang. He first met Chris London in 2005, where he lived and worked for 10 years. He then brought his creative touch to Berlin before returning back to Melbourne and started at Babar Hair in 2016.

David is master of his tools, nailing any haircut you throw at him, including his top barbering skills. Throw in a bleach job and you’ve made his day.

When not in the salon he is eyeing off Chris’s food, looking for a new place to live, talking about his two cats or planning a trip away.


The Gang


Without our side kicks Sarah and Gemma, Babar Hair wouldn’t be what it is. Sarah, who is studying nursing, and Gemma who is usually getting thrown in the air cheerleading help organize the floor and phones here. You’ll find them running around making teas and coffees, handing out the lastest gossip magazines and putting you to sleep getting your hair washed.

Babar Hair we also have two independent stylist working from our space. We have Steve, who is banned from choosing any music played at the salon, and Bri who is usually found cuddling Betty when not doing hair.
