Q: Where can I find a good hairdresser in Beijing?

I need to get my hair cut and highlighted. Does anyone know a good place to get it done in Beijing? Also what sort of price ranges I'm I looking at? Is it worth getting them done at different places? I'll pay more for the colour as I don't fancy my hair falling out. 

 

When I first arrived I just went to a walk in place with many many hairdressers. Paid about 40 Kuai, but I couldn't explain layering and ended up just wearing my hair up all the time till I went back home.

bring a local friend to the hairdresser, ask a local friend to write out what you want or bring a picture. Prices can range from cheap and cheerful - the one chair in the window places - to the big more expensive ones where you can also get a massage when waiting. There are SO many hairdressers to choose from. They are everywhere. (you don't say what district you are in)

EDIT: the bigger ones have a 'Number 1 hairdresser' and so on down the line. so you could pay up to 750 RMB or more. If you go to a larger one, ask if there is a VIP card so you can get a discount

I went to a place called Tony Studio. They have several branches in Beijing and are modelled after Tony & Guy. They're not quite as expensive but definitely pricier than the average salon. I think they're good because they have a lot of foreign clients and staff who understand what the modern, globetrotter wants. I think the most expensive cut costs around 380 RMB and the cheapest 180 RMB.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
