Professional Cut / Style
Love the way you look!
Our sole mission is to make you feel special and confident – enhancing your individual self.
Over three decades, Justin Pace has earned a formidable reputation in the hairdressing industry. To Co and Pace Salons and his team, Justin brings this wealth of knowledge and experience, imbuing the hair created with a familiar, trusted and respected feel. Quite rightly, our newly refurbished Ann Street location at the bustling heart of Brisbane’s CBD has become something of an institution (existing clients returning regularly and new clients discovering us daily.)
While we’re constantly welcoming new clients into the fold, our enduring goal is to build lasting relationships . . . those with true longevity. Once you’ve experienced the Co and Pace Salons’ approach, it’s highly unlikely you’ll want to go elsewhere! As many of our valued clients (considered family) have trusted us with their hair over the long-term, we consider it to be testament to the quality of work, skills and staff produced (plus the type of environment fostered.)
Our stylists have been hand-picked to ensure a team with the broadest possible skillset. Each brings something unique to the table, with the show-stopping looks we’re known for the result of a collaborative approach. While our strengths, interests and areas of expertise vary greatly, the one thing we have in common is a love of our jobs and clients.
We pride ourselves on our team’s unique insights. This is based on a commitment to continual improvement, ongoing education and upskilling, matchless knowledge of global trends and influences (some we’re responsible for creating) and a lasting appreciation of the timeless styles people love. By keeping an eye on the past, present and future, we’re able to blend the best of all eras for results that are simultaneously classic and unique.
Our deep understanding of hair combined with our adaptability, creative flair and industry-leading tools and techniques place us in the strongest position to design personalised looks. To discover your tastes and goals, we conduct a thorough consultation process (listening closely to what you say.) By finding out about you, your likes and dislikes, we develop a deep understanding of your vision and hopeful outcomes. These insights combined with our all-encompassing expertise is what guides us in the creation of a style bespoke to you.
While some clients come to us with a fully formed idea of what they want, others look for honest advice and guidance. Before tapping into our extensive expertise, we consider your overall circumstances (learning about the unique demands of home, personal and professional commitments.)
We believe a custom style should serve two purposes. It must:
Who doesn’t want that ‘fresh from the salon’ look every time they leave the house (or when they jump into a Zoom meeting?)
As influences pour in from around the world at every moment of the day, fashions in hair change and evolve all the time. In the age of social media, new looks sweep the world faster than ever. That said, Co and Pace Salons is not purely led by fashion (nor the latest celebrity looks.) We’re equally at home creating unique and modern takes on classic styles, or transforming your look with edgy, ultra-modern, statement-making finishes.
Effortless chic is making a comeback (if it ever really left!) In a shift away from the more straightened and structured styles of recent years, current tendencies lean toward hair that appears natural and lived-in, with lots of texture.
Long hair, don’t care? That’s the right attitude for 2021! Long hair has never (and likely will never) go out of style, made evident by the recent resurgence of super long and voluminous styles. The key to ensuring this look is carried off with success is well-maintained, healthy looking locks that really create an impact.
Having taken something of a backseat in recent years, the dependable bob has been slowly creeping back into the consciousness of those looking for a sharp, structured, professional and striking look. Trust us when we say the bob is the style to look out for in 2021!
At its heart, the team at Co and Pace Salons is comprised of artists. We love to create and thrive when working with clients to prime their hair for enhanced beauty, reflecting their personality. Talk to us about creating a completely new and individual look, one that’ll push the boundaries and create a statement!
“I’m always very happy with my hair after a visit to Co and Pace. Always a relaxing experience and the staff are all lovely. I’ve had my hair cut by Matt and Sharon and both did a fabulous job!”
If you ask us, all hair styles are at their best when the hair itself is shiny, healthy, wearable and easy to maintain. An ongoing, appropriate haircare routine that comprises quality products is vitally important to ensure you obtain the best from your new style (for as long as possible.) We love sharing our learnings with clients, so if you’re unsure of which elements your maintenance regime should include, just ask and we’ll gladly tell you everything you need to know.
Fundamentally, hair is a fiber (so needs to be treated gently and with respect.) To achieve this, a good shampoo and conditioner are crucial (alongside a quality hairbrush, decent blow dryer and the ritualistic application of heat protection.) When it comes to styling products like wax, clay and hairspray, choose carefully by paying close attention to the ingredients. Also . . . don’t overdo it! A small amount of the right product should be enough to maintain the look you want.
It’s a common problem. You walk out of your hairdressing appointment, looking and feeling a million dollars. You go to drinks and the compliments flow. Later, it happens . . . much to your frustration, no matter what you try, you just can’t seem to recreate that flawless ‘fresh from the salon’ look at home.
Identifying quality haircare and styling products will ensure you are able to revive a salon look and feel whenever you need, with minimal hassle. Like many of the world’s most respected stylists, Co and Pace Salons recommend Redken 5th Avenue NYC (plus other brands like Kerastase, Shu Uemura and Pureology.) Heavily associated with the fashion world, Redken 5th Avenue NYC is a brand that carries serious credibility. Though over and above the more superficial associations, all Redken 5th Avenue NYC products are rooted in science.
Meticulous research goes into the product development of the range, with only the best ingredients selected for inclusion (meaning unbeatable quality.) Thanks to a commitment to ongoing product evolution and improvement dating back to the brand’s establishment in the 1960s, the Redken 5th Avenue NYC team knows exactly what your hair needs in order to thrive.
As we place so much importance on maintaining long-term client relationships, we tend to find many regular customers opt to book a year’s worth of appointments at once. This is particularly true for those striving to maintain consistency in their appearance.
However – if you’re discovering Co and Pace Salons for the first time – please feel free to give us a call and we’ll do our best to find an appointment that suits. At the risk of stating the obvious, the further in advance you call to make a booking, the more likely it is we’ll be able to fit you in for the service you want (the day / time you want it.)
We proudly take a guest-centric approach. What this means is you’ll immediately be greeted by one of our friendly team members (who’ll go out of their way to ensure you feel comfortable and looked after from the moment you walk in till the moment you leave.)
We want to offer you a sense of escapism . . . the opportunity to leave your troubles at the door and just relax. Comfy seats, hot or cold towels to leave you feeling refreshed, delicious biscuits and hot or cold beverages are all part of the service (tea, coffee or even a cheeky alcoholic beverage . . . the choice is yours!)
Flick through the latest editions of your favourite magazines or take advantage of our high-speed WiFi to set up a workstation, view emails or scroll through socials. In next to no time, your stylist will greet you and commence the transformation process.
For new clients, we’ll kick-start the process with some dedicated consultation time. For us, this is our opportunity to listen to and understand your goals. By finding out about you, your likes (and perhaps more importantly your dislikes), we’ll offer gentle advice as we work together to create a bespoke style that perfectly complements your individual aesthetic (plus amplifies your confidence.) Over and above this, we’ll ensure it’ll be easy to recreate your new look at home, regardless of the demands of your lifestyle.
Thanks to our consultation process and commitment to finding out about your lifestyle, we’re not only able to give you the most beautiful and appropriate cut but offer advice on how to approach the ongoing maintenance of your hair (including suggestions regarding the treatments, products and tools necessary to maintain that salon-perfect look – consistently and immaculately.)
To us, enabling and empowering you for the successful ongoing maintenance of your new style is just as important as the quality of the cut itself.
If you’re looking for an experienced and passionate wedding hair stylist to make sure you look your absolute best on the most important day of your life, the team at Co and Pace Salons have you covered! Aside from being adept at everything from the latest styles to more classic, timeless looks, we know how to pamper and make guests feel special.
We have the space and facilities to accommodate an entire bridal party, plus ensure your every whim is taken care of with precision. In collaboration with your makeup artist, our highly creative team of session stylists will ensure the perfect look for the perfect day.
We absolutely do! Although our client base is largely female, our team gains just as much satisfaction from offering male clients the sharpest new looks. Gender and age are irrelevant to us. If there’s one thing you can depend on at Co and Pace Salons, it’s a team committed to ensuring you walk out our door feeling and looking your absolute best, whoever you are.
Depending on what you need, it’s certainly a possibility. If you pop in and we have a slot, we’ll welcome you immediately. However – as a well-established and popular salon – we do tend to become heavily booked relatively far in advance.
Our advice would be to make a booking as far ahead as you can. This will ensure we’re able to look after you at a time that suits. Where this is not possible and you need to be seen urgently (see the next question!), we’d suggest at least calling ahead to check availability, potentially saving yourself a wasted trip.
Unsurprisingly, you’re not the first to ask this question (and you certainly won’t be the last!) Whether your usual stylist has let you down (or you’re yet to find your usual stylist), we’re here to help. What can we say? We love a challenge! Our team is 100% committed to working with you to fix any mishaps.
Through a process of consultation regarding initial expectations versus the reality of your new hairstyle, we’ll suggest an approach that will not only rectify the issues but leave you with a solution that improves on your original vision. By the time you leave our care, you’ll be able to pretend your hair disaster never even happened. The only downside is you’ll wish you’d come to us first!
At Co and Pace Salons, we have a diverse clientele of all ages and professions, from mums and dads to corporate executives, medical professionals to the hospitality crowd.
To help accommodate everyone (regardless of how an individual’s working week looks), our opening and closing times are entirely flexible. Simply inform of your requirements and we’ll do our best to find a time that works.
