i've become a little tired of the state lotto mentality of my local hairdresser. and i'm the first to admit that it's my fault. a translation of my usual conversation would be:

me: (trans from korean) please. cut. short. please. this is fun. i like short. dont like <chak chak chak> please cut. sideburns cut nothing! understand? panza! thanks
.

my question: does anyone know of a decent hairdresser in inner seoul who is good with waeguk hair. pref one with good english skills.
i
know it's a stretch, but these circa 1990s britpop cuts have to go...

I had the same problem. After one visit to a barbershop ( you get a "different" service than one you get in the states), I took a korean friend to the local beauty parlor and things worked out well.

I usually hit up the hair salons myself. The ladies usually like cutting and styling my hair for some reason.

But I heard theres a place in the COEX that caters to foreigners. Dunno where tough

Go to a beauty shop that looks like they have their act together. Maybe bring a picture.

Denz, u should know how much cute Korean gals dig the Britpop!

Itaewon has plenty of hir salons that will do right by you. Or, take the time and find an ex-military barber who speaks english. i had a great one like that in Changwon.

I'm due for a trim myself. Burned out my flowbee - forgot the currency flip!!! Rolling Eyes

I wish they had a 'Sexy Scissors' here in Seoul, but most of the places come pretty close on their own . . .

Regards, good luck, & see you (&Ms. M & maybe Felix) for dinner on Sat.

G.

I've been trying to cut my hair for years. How can you cut the back when it's so hard to see?

If you want to cut your own hair, you can go to a special shop that sells to beauty shops and get clippers. I just bought some Japanese clippers for W60,000, complete with adapter.

Ask around at work for the Korean word for that kind of shop.

What about hairdressers that i can trust to bleach my hair?? I don't want a brassy/heinous mess, i am quite vain. Does anyone have a trusty hairdresser that can at least speak moderate english? the hairdressers round me are scary looking.

I can count on one hand the amount of "good" haircuts i have had in my life. With the bleaching thing, i want highlights, rather than a full-on bleach. But I have had the orange hair before, and once actually on purpose, but it is not what i want at the moment.
