Every time I visit Donna and Petula at thecoolredroom, I leave feeling like a million bucks. I sometimes suspect that there is some sort of magic or wizardry happening in that place; how else can I leave the salon each and every time I visit with absolutely perfect hair and feeling like I just spent a week at a spa?  Donna’s cuts cannot be beaten –…

Rickie Lee has been doing my hair for over two years now, and I can honestly say that my hair has never looked better! Even beyond being a talented stylist, Rickie takes the time to get to know you AND your hair, answering questions and being extremely engaging. Really, that’s why I love the Cool Red Room: even when you are there for hours, the c…
Had a haircut at the Cool Red Room the other week and it was a great experience. The staff were very warm and inviting and I am extremely happy with my haircut. I will definitely be back.

Donna gave me a tremendous haircut, six weeks ago, that went travelling with me throughout S.E Asia….and stayed in first class condition throughout my travels – in continually changing circumstances. The mark of a great haircut is one that falls naturally into place no matter where….high winds, continuous rain or intense sun….my hair always…

I found Donna 30 years ago and have been a loyal and enthusiastic client ever since. From the moment you walk into the Cool Red Room, you know you have found a place and a team that is there for you. Not only will you find the most up-to-date and respected techniques, products and services, provided by an excellently trained, knowledgeable and c…
The cut and colour last week was the best ever! Of course I think that every time I leave the Cool Red Room, but Donna, your latest was even more “me”. I love it! Are heads turning as I walk down the street, or am I imagining it? Who knows, all I know is I feel sooo good in my hair.
I walked into the Cool Red Room feeling very un happy with the way I looked, my hair was dull and in need of a revamp. The minute I entered into the Cool Red Room, my persona changed, I was greeted by Karen, who instantly made me feel more relaxed. I haven’t always had good experiences in Hair Salons so I was quite nervous, especially when I’m …

Donna combines the best tools, the best products, the best techniques and her keen eye for cut and style! She knows what’s new and what’s fresh, and can see what look best suits each client. I’ve always benefited from her recommendations. She is a consummate professional and I strongly recommend her. Her salon is always bathed in warm sunligh…
Thank you Karen for your warm and inviting presence every time I visit the salon and thank you Donna for allowing me to just sit in your chair and get the prettiest cut imaginable without me having to say a word!
Tania Lomaga
Donna and her team are tops at delivering a quality, enjoyable hairstyling experience. That’s why I’ve kept coming back for so many years. But when I experienced a terrible tragedy in my personal life, that’s when the special personal qualities of this team shone through. They have provided me with support in so many forms and are so understa…
