Another western guy looking for a haircut in BKK.

I have quite long hair, want to get it a bit shorter (not shaved or mullet-ized), any recommendations? estimated cost?

Will I be allowed into Thailand looking a bit like a hippy/surfer? :P

Hello Marty

i met a girl who got her hair cut, in China. She ended up with an old China lady haircut. She wore a scarf to cover her hair, every time she went out.

I think it would be a good idea, to take a magazine picture, of the haircut u want, to the hairdresser. U could try hairdressers in big international hotels. They will be used to dealing with foreigners.

I always go to a small shop on Soi Rambutree (that's the small road running along the Wat Chana Songkhram, with a bank on the corner). The shop is next door to AB travel agency. I am going to have my next hair cut in there in 2 weeks. (please don't blame me if something goes wrong - but I like this hairdresser-es).;)

I went to one place down Soi Rambutri to get some waxing done & nails painted, the was next to the 7-11 shop. Really cheap in there, saw loads of guys getting their hair cut, think they cater for tourists so they're probably ok. Best to stick with having a trim, can't go too wrong then or point to someone who has hair that you want.

lol! Course you will be, Thai people are used to that look! Although they will have more respect for you if you smarten up a bit for visits to temples and of course the grand palace.

Thai people also do not like it when us westerners (who are not used to humid weather) sweat, apparently they think we smell bad.

Laura,
I am sure we do. Different diet and sweating too much would result in an offensive odor to the Thais. When I was working in Vegas, people from India had a distinctive aroma about them. Different diet and different customs produces a different odor than we are used to. Just part of the varied tapestry of being human.

The salon I patronizing, initially attracted me by it neatness and professional feel, is very professional. I can feel their sincerity in servicing me which I don't feel elsewhere. Very often when I walked into a salon, as a farang sometime we feel cornered into getting more services and products.

The stylish not only have experience in farang hair, importantly she understand what's happening to my hair and my needs.Their price tags are so reasonable (in fact is very low) but the standard and services can easily beat many reputable salons. The product carried by them is Alfaparf from Italy and Enie from Japan. On top of that, the owner speak good English. This master stylish used to work in several reputable salons in Thong Lok and Japenese salons. She is able to give good advice and recommendation. Guess what? when i did my rebonding (hair striaghtening) they even give assurance to the result.

I strongly recommend those who are going for quality service at an unresistable price tag to pay them a visit. Chetta Lifestyle Salon, 155/108 Udom Suk 47 (Suhkumhvit Road 103), Bangkok, ph.02-3982994 and 085-9348427(mobile). Not sure what's the nearest BTS but they are quite near to Seacon Square and Siren Centre (Taxi fare from here is about 35 bahts). Ask for the master stylist Miss Chetta should you need converse in English. You can also let the taxi driver speak with them on the direction.

Hi im in Bangkok, heading up to Chaing Mai tomorrow and then back down to Bangkok again.

What i need to know is, where can a Western guy get his hair cut in Thailand? Ive heard some horror stories of people who haver been sheared by local hairdressers. is there anywhere (perhaps near Khao San Road?) that caters for Western haircuts.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Martin

I get my hair cut pretty often in Pattaya, no problems so far. Price ranges (for Farangs) around 60 to 100 baht.

Never despair, the only difference between a "good haircut" and a "bad haircut" is about 2 weeks!

Check out some of the customers coming out of the shop, they got both ears and the sides match pretty good - go for it, if you don't like it it'll be okay an a couple weeks. If you were back home you would be spending at least 4 or 5 times more with no guarantee of a "good haircut anyway!"

All i want is short back and sides , number 1 round the sides blended in to a number 2 , and short on the top . This is simple enough in England , but will they pull it off in Thailand ? i don't want them to get it wrong so i end up looking like a US Marine

Thank you for your recommendation. I visited them yesterday for color highlight, lowlight and treatment. They really delivered quality with color perfectly matched with what I've asked for. I paid only half of the price I usually spent at Siam ctr. Best to book your appointment before you drop by
