Our Story



RAW Anthony Nader was established in 1997 in Sydney on the principle of providing clients with an exceptional hair and beauty experience and is now one of the most visited Top Hair Salon in Australia. The level of comfort and service is unsurpassed in the hair and beauty industry.

From the breath taking zen Relaxation Pod room to the ensuite, it’s no wonder this New York inspired Surry Hills space is a fave by Sydney’s top beauty and fashion media editors.

Special thanks to CALIDA building projects who are responsible for such beautiful spaces as the Watsons Bay Hotel, Harrold’s, Paramount House and Giorgio Armani.

Gritty Pretty also giving us the gold star “The Most Luxurious Hair Salon In Sydney” as well as the stamp of approval TRIED TESTED APPROVED which we are super proud of because our clients mean the world to us.

If you can’t make it into the salon, you can visit our online store at SydneySalonSupplies where you will find many great industry leading brands such as Wahl, BabylissPro, Mason Pearson, Twin Turbo, Mason Pearson, YS Park, Beachwaver, ghd and many more.

We use and recommend ORIBE, R+Co , MUK, Mason Pearson, ghd & YS Park products in our Surry Hills flagship salon.

Whilst every one of our clients receive the royal treatment, our high standards and attention to detail have made us the preferred salon of choice for many Australian and international celebrities.
