Nicole Hudson Can Handle Any Type of Hair

According to famed hair stylist Andre Walker and Andre Walker Hair Typing System, which has been used by most hair stylists since its inception in the 1990s and is the predominant method for categorizing hair types, there are four main different types of hair. These four main hair-types are straight hair, wavy hair, curly hair, and kinky hair. As well, these four main hair-types have a variety of sub-types. Straight hair and wavy hair can be subcategorized as fine, medium, or coarse, curly hair can be either loose or tight, and kinky hair can be either soft or wiry.

As many people can attest, these four main hair-types and their different variables can provide a seemingly infinite range of unique problems when it comes to dealing with the care of your hair, maintenance, and styling. What works for one main hair-type may not work for another, even among the various sub-types that share the same main categorization. Just the thickness of your hair strands can lead to a whole host of specific issues that need to be dealt with, which is why it is so important for you to find a salon which specializes in all different types of hair.

At Nicole Hudson Hair Care & Beauty Salon, Nicole Hudson and her team of trained specialists can tackle any hair-type, regardless of however much you’ve had trouble with it in the past. Nicole Hudson offers personalized care and one-on-one consultations for anyone who has had difficulty tackling the unique needs of their hair-type, and can get you looking and feeling your absolute best. It is our specific hair-type that makes us so unique, and we deserve a salon and a stylist that appreciates and has the skill and know-how to accommodate our individual wants and needs.

Each type of hair has its own set of problems. Straight hair, while being the easiest type of hair to deal with if you are just planning on wearing it down for a casual evening, is hard to mold when you want to do something more special. Ask anyone with straight hair about how hard it is to curl it and make it stick, and get ready for a long-winded rant about all the times they’ve tried and failed to curl their hair. Most people with straight hair give up after a while, feeling as though the look of luscious, curly hair isn’t worth the strain and the burning smell as they pass the curler through their locks again and again, waiting for it to stay in shape. Another issue that occurs is with hair volume, as sometimes it can be nearly impossible to make silky, straight hair into as voluminous a do as one may wish. At Nicole Hudson, our years of experience and special training with all hair-types gives us plenty of ideas about how best to deal with your straight hair so that we can get you looking your absolute best in any hair-style of your choice, whether you want the loudest, proudest puff of hair on the planet or just want some nice, consistent curls that will last and stay lifted on your special night out.

People with wavy hair tend to have nearly all the opposite problems of people with straight hair. Their hair can puff out too much, making them uncomfortable with its size and the way it makes their head look. It can get very frizzy and contort into all wild shapes and sizes that seem almost impossible to control. And, unlike straight hair, which lays fine naturally, wavy hair never really looks right until you style it. People with wavy hair generally feel the need to bring along a whole hair-styling kit wherever they go, complete with both a curling iron and a straightening iron. Wavy hair is just uncomfortable in-between of all the hair-types, and wavy hair problems run the gambit across the board.

A one-on-one consultation with Nicole Hudson

A one-on-one consultation with Nicole Hudson can get your specific hair needs diagnosed, so that someone with wavy hair can find the perfect solution and style for them and whatever problems they may be having with their unique sub-type. Nicole Hudson and her team of trained specialists can eliminate the stress of waking up everyday and not knowing what to do with your hair by providing a vast array of knowledge and experience for people with wavy hair and their unique problems.

Now, while straight hair and wavy hair have their fair share of problems, curly and kinky hair are known to be the most difficult hair-types to deal with, making expert care all the more enticing for people who have a sub-type which falls under one of these two main types of hair. Curly hair can be insanely difficult to manage, drying out and turning into a wild mess of infinite tangles in the span of a day without proper maintenance. People with curly hair often spend much longer in the bathroom than those with straight or wavy hair, desperately trying to make sense of however their hair seems to be feeling that day. People with curly hair require extra care and consideration when getting their hair done, which is something that Nicole Hudson specializes in.

Finally, kinky hair might be the greatest beast of them all. Ask anyone with kinky hair, and they will tell you how hard it is to make kinky hair do anything besides whatever it wants to do at the moment. You are pretty much left with no other option but to let your hair simply exist and hope no one notices. As kinky hair is pretty much curly hair turned up to 11, kinky hair has all the problems of curly hair but tenfold. After a personal consultation with Nicole Hudson, your kinky hair will be tamed, as Nicole Hudson specializes in all hair-types and can tame any mange of curls.

So, there you have it, four types of hair and one incredibly simple solution for dealing with any of them: go to Nicole Hudson! Nicole Hudson Hair & Beauty offers personalized hair-care for anyone of any type, able to get you looking and feeling the best that you can in your own skin! Don’t be intimidated by your hair any longer, and schedule a one-on-one consultation with Nicole Hudson at her Cronulla salon today!

Color Corrections


Hair Color Correction is a tricky business and Nicole Hudson recommends it only be attempted by an experienced professional hair color specialist. It is not as simple as covering the old color with the color desired as strength of the new color must be altered to take into consideration the changes that will ensue when mixed with the old.

Hair Extensions


Do you want something different with your hairstyle? Would you like a bit more volume or a fuller hair bunch? Then having hair extensions attached can be a good solution for you. You can easily get longer hair, firmer curls or just more volume: it will give you just what you want. Good extensions are invisible but have a visible result. Hair extensions can be put in all kinds of hair, even in more fragile or thin hair.

The organic colours and treatments that Nicole uses are amazing and my hair looks fantastic! Thanks Nicole and team

Marisa (Sylvania)

Thank you Nicole and Capri for providing excellent service. I always leave Indossa happy with my hair colour/cut and I've been visiting the salon for ten years! There's always a good vibe and Nicole keeps up to date with the latest hair trends and products. I look forward to my next visit.

Ann (Kograh)

Nicole is the best cutter and colour expert in Sydney....hands down!

Anonymous (Menai)

I think Nicole is hands down the best Hair stylist, colourist, cutter I have ever been too! This is why I travel to and keep going back to her. Her warm manner with her clients makes you feel valued like family. While it costs me more to travel to go and see her, at this point I would not trust anyone else with my hair. In my opinion she is wonderful at what she does.

Michelle (Yass)

Always leave the salon feeling relaxed and happy in the hands of Nicole.A true Yogi.

Carole (Cronulla)

Nicole, not only are you a fantastic hairdresser but you're a beautiful person. Thank you for excellent service! x

Ann (Kograh Bay)

Nicole knows what she is doing and I trust her completely. When you have long hair and want to keep it a lot of other hair dressers just cut too much. Nicole knows how to cut and what to cut and the colour is amazing. Thank you Nicole.


I have been a client of Nicole's for 7 years. She has taken me from a blonde to a red and recently back to blonde again. Nicole looked after my hair during my time on 'So You Think You Can Dance', where I was constantly having my hair styled.

Chanelle Johnson

I never have any preconceived notions about how I am going to look on leaving Nicole's salon. I usually leave it up to Nicole to decide on what I am having. Never have I been disappointed, always fun, never dull and great results.

Toni (loyal client of 15 years)

Thank you Nicole Hudson for our fabulous hair @Indossa x

Yvonne Tozzi

Nicole, Thankyou for the follow up. I am delighted with my hair colour and cut, can’t stop raving about you and your salon. See you in about seven weeks.


My beauty and body secrets - I credit my hair colour to: “A few different people. I go to Nicole Hudson at Indossa in Cronulla, right near my house (she's very good with blondes), and sometimes I'll go to Valonz in Paddington. In New York I go to Sally Hershberger.”

Cheyenne Tozzi

Cannot thank you guys enough for the care and attention you gave me and my granddaughter River. My hair was a disaster when I walked in, but when I walked out it was amazing. So so happy. What an awesome result!!! Thanks so much Nicole 😁

Kelly-Elizabeth Rosman

I love, love, love my new hair. Nicole has done a beautiful job, she completely listened to me, couldn’t rate her more highly

Wendy Keene

Nicole Hudson and Capre are terrific. Nicole fixed a really bad hair cut and I could hardly recognise myself - in a good way. The salon is gorgeous as are the lovely staff. Good value for money as well.

Saeran Adams

In Cronulla for the weekend and came to the amazing Nicole Hudson for a trim and blow dry ... she is a magician xxx

Deb Deane

Had an absolutely amazing experience today at Nicole Hudson Hair. The ladies were extremely supportive, precise, and the results were fantastic. Never been happier!

Baleigh Gorman

Couldn't be happier, I took off about 8 inches of hair and was very nervous about the change but Nicole and her young apprentice were wonderful and made me forget about the nerves all together. Very well priced and great service, I couldn't recommend her enough.

Alix Forst

Amazing first time at the salon today and the cut and colour i am in love with thanks Nicole

Latisa Valerie Medic

Prior to seeing Nicole, I hadn't been able to grow my hair, it was really damaged and parts of my hair had snapped off. Since I have been coming here, (over 1.5 years), not only do I always leave with an amazing fresh blonde colour but my hair is healthy and has also grown so much. Nicole and Capre are amazing x

Paige McDonald

Nicole is a very special hairdresser who is upto date with the latest colour, products and style..My hair is always in great condition and my colour is always on point. Thank you Nicole for your passion & creativeness that you give to me x

Kathy Kalogiannis

So I reckon you know how good a hairdresser is by how your hair looks when u have to do it yourself. I love my hair and I can actually achieve a similar look 😬. Great cu colour and look!

Amanda Bailey

Nicole always works her magic!! A true professional !

Ronelle Adams

Gorgeous Nicole Hudson, Thank you for always fitting me in at bizarre times, 20yrs n you always do an amazing job, You Are the best true professional n friend 💛U Xx

Nicole Watson

Nicole has been my stylist for years and I trust her completely with my hair! Her colours are beautiful and she always stays one step ahead with fresh ideas. I always leave feeling great!

Jo Wilton

Nicole has been doing my hair for nearly 15 years now, and has kept it beautiful through periods of high work stress, two pregnancies and an unfortunate over-reliance on my hair dryer. She doesn't mind me booting up the laptop to work away while she transforms my hair each time, and now my daughter loves coming with me to have her hair done by Capre.

Leonie Wilkinson

I was lucky to be squeezed in late on a Friday for a makeup appointment, and needed some shampoo/conditioner. The girls were lovely but the shampoo/conditioner is the first one I've used EVER that makes my hair look good dried naturally, no straightener. I thought I needed a keratin treatment but not anymore. Best conditioner ever.

Ally Mahoney

Nicole is honestly the best hairdresser that I have come across in such a long time. After moving to Sydney and testing and trying countless salons that honestly just destroyed my hair, I went and thought I would give Nicole's salon a try and she is honestly a miracle worker. I went in with orange/fluro yuck ends and she completely cleaned it up while maintaining my natural hair to create something beautiful!

Jaime-Lee Digby

So nice to finally find the amazing Nicole Hudson, the only woman who is able to actually do blondes to perfection!!! If you haven't already, book in today!!!!

Bilinda Turner

Nicole is by far the best hairdresser I've ever been to. I knew she had a lot of female customers and she is very popular among the girls with her world class designs, but guys, I've never felt so good after a hair cut. Not only this but the service, the atmosphere and the fact that she gets it right every time make me come from the Eastern Suburbs at least once a month. What a find! I have no hesitation in recommending this outstanding salon and it's charming and very talented owner to anyone. A true professional. I'm hooked.

Doc Martin

Where do I even begin to thank you for my AH-MAZING hair. Previous hairdressers just wouldn't get it right, I have never walked out of a salon and been happy with both the cut and colour ! You are extremely gifted, I am so happy my beautiful Aunty introduced you into my life lol!! Thank you Nicole!!!

Cathy Allotta

Excellent service - great hairstyle

Rick Vermunt

Nicole and Skye, thank you so much for the wonderful work you do. Great price and service. People at work always compliment my nice colour and hair cut

Jane Tiukinhoy

Always 5 Star service with Nicole. Nothing is too much trouble. Does great colour and cut. She is the only hairdresser in my life where I have not had to go home after and re-blow dried my hair to how I like it ! Been going to Nicole for almost 12 years now !!

Julie Scott

Nicole was recommended to me by a friend after my recent move to the area. Nicole does not disappoint, she understood what I wanted and executed my cut beautifully. Her friendly staff are also very welcoming and attentive. I think it is safe to say I have found my new hairdresser.

Tiana Griffiths

Thank you for fitting me in and making me feel beautiful again, dear Nicole. So grateful for your skill, expertise & professionalism for these past 15 years. You are a Legend and the most beautiful soul/stylist/colourist. Those who know you absolutely adore you!!! ❤️

Excellent stylist with colouring and cutting! I have been a client since 2006, and have always been complimented on my hair. Nicole is talented in her expertise and is a happy positive beautiful soul.

Trish Apostolakis

Sensational!!! I have been going to barbers for ages and decided it was time to add a little style into my cut. From the warm welcome and hair wash by Sky to the great style and conversation with Nicole, it was a relaxing experience.

Todd Armstrong

I have been going to Nicole for 11 years and I am always receiving compliments from people on my hair. Thank you Nicole, you always know how to keep the look fresh and your professionalism never waivers.

Mary-Ann Baldock

My hair always feels and looks fabulous at Nicole Hudson salon. Her understanding of Blonde hair is on point and the service she gives is outstanding. Being Blonde is so important with colour and texture and also her haircuts are fantastic.

Kathy Kalogiannis
