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.

I had several haircuts in Asia, some were really horrible and others quite ok, to not to say really good!

Anyway, in Bangkok I recommend you to go to the Siam square district, at best Siam Center shopping centre, where you'll find good hairdressers who are used to cut "european hair". Another alternative is the hairdressers in fine hotels where prices are much higher but quality ain't better.

Good luck!

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).;)

Hi, I went to the MBK center in Bangkok and got my hair cut and highlighted at Loreal professional cost me 2500 Baht which is not even 50Pound. There is also a Toni and Guy salon in MBK too. I was very pleased with my hair cut too.

I have had the best haircuts and shaves in my life in Thailand.Those cut throat rasors are terrific.Ears,face and eyelids.Usually 'San Som' is a trim and you will not be skalped. If you are then it's all for the good of the hot weather and the fact that the GI's have been there before.
Don't worry about it. It usually grows back!!
Just lay back and enjoy.The traditional barbers are the best.

Just got my hair done in MBK - very nice, cheap and good (as in didn't look like "thai quality").

Hmmm... do I still have the business card? Yup. Hair Lord Hairdressing - ask for Pia. Otherwise, there are tonnes of other hair shops... including Toni & Guy, which I didn't see until after but might have been inclined to go to had I known.

yep, B70 (up B10 the previous time I was there) - for a nice 'number 2 all over'.

Unfortunately I have burnt my skull skin just within hours of getting a haircut. Painfull and ugly.:(
