Delilah – Dry-haircutting and Curl Specialists
At Delilah, we have perfected the art of the highly coveted dry-haircut. So, I thought I’d take this opportunity to tell you all about why we do it, and why you should too!
At our gorgeous and cozy, light filled hair studio in Melbourne’s fashionable heart of Brunswick East, we’ve been delivering expert haircuts to lots of lovely folk for the past 14 years (and counting). And baby—let me tell you—we do it dry!
Put simply, dry-haircutting is the art of cutting hair in its natural state: dry. People come to us with their hair in its natural textured form, and that’s the way we cut it.
We can truly see your hair, and you!
When you arrive at our studio for a dry-haircut with your hair in its natural, dry state, we can truly see your hair texture. We can see all of the lumps and bumps, curls, waves, cow-licks and frizz. This means that when we are deciding on a haircut for you, together, we can design the haircut around what your hair wants to do naturally. We can emphasize areas, disguise areas, and really bring out the very best parts of your hair texture.
Why will this make my life easier?
Having a dry-haircut means that we are working with the natural texture of your hair. When we design a haircut for you, we aren’t trying to force your hair to do things it doesn’t want to. This means when you style one of our haircuts at home, they are sooooo easy. They literally take no time at all to style. Why? Because your haircut has been designed around what your hair does naturally.
Why is dry-cutting better for curly hair?

With dry-haircutting we can truly create wonderful shape for your curly hair that’s really easy to style. This is because we are taking your curls natural texture into consideration when we cut it.
