    Question Ladies Hairstylist???

    Can anyone recommend a good ladies hairstylist in Hong Kong or Kowloon? Have been avoiding getting my hair experimented upon here for quite long but now am in desperate need of one.........

    The posts here are old so wanted some latest reviews and recommendations.

    Instead of recomendations, maybe we could make a thread about stylists to avoid! I'm desperate too, but many hair salon seemed to make their advertisement through geoexpat this way.

    I'm yet to find someone I'd actually recommend and I've tried quite a few! Same goes for all my friends. I've been to quite a few run by westerners thinking that they'd know how to cut hair but i have to say that they were all very average hairdressers that I'm sure wouldn't have been able to charge what they do back home where people actually give good haircuts.

    Probably the best cut I received was at the PI salon in IFC which has no westerners working there!

    The Colour Bar Salon in Central is great. I use Antonietta 2525-4228. The Colour Bar Salon. (I have straight western hair w/ highlights.)

    Best hairdresser in town

    I'm quite picky on hairdresser and subsequent to a couple of bizzard experience in Hong Kong. Finally, I found the best one Cairy (a Chinsee guy) who speaks fluent English and you'll get a nice & stylist cut in a reasonably price (HK$250).

    As for coloring, I was amazed how well he did to turn my light brown hair into bleach blonde (like Gwen Stefani) in the price range of HK$1,500. Awesome job!

    The salon is in Causeway Bay, PM me and I'll forward all contact details.

    cagal - I'll PM you for details of your recommendation. Don't suppose anyone knows of anyone in TKO area also? I can't afford anything too swanky but need someone who knows how to handle a big frizzy mop!

    While we're on the subject - anyone know any shampoos/ conditioners for thick frizzy hair? I used to use 'Frizz Ease' but haven't seen it here. Starting to look like I put my fingers in the electric sockets...

    I think you can get curly hair specialist shampoo/conditioner from Paul Mitchell, Kerastase and Aveda, all of which are sold here in salons.

    Re hair stylist, I use Catherine at Paul Gerrard. She's not cheap but can do colour and cutting and she's great. Not pushy and not trying to make a quick buck out of you, very pleasant and knows what she's doing. She was very patient with me explaining all the different options she could use on my hair colour. She's Australian.

    cagal - THANK YOU!! I had an appointment with Cairy today and it turned out to be one of the best hair cuts I've ever had. He took one look at my completely mad hair (hadn't been cut in over a year) and instantly knew what to do with it. I was in there for almost 2 hours while he turned my frizzy mop into sleek waves - a bargain for 250! I'll definitely be going back next time it needs taming!
