With Prague continuing its’ journey towards recognition as the best capital city globally, greater numbers of hairdressers appear in the City to find their fortune and Czech hair salons are very competitive with better customer care and a bigger array of services. The hairstylists at Prague’s premier salons will be fluent in English, although you will pay for this privilege; around one thousand to two thousand Crowns for a hair-cut and style and a minimum of an extra one thousand Crowns for colouring. Top choices amongst the Czech celebrity & fashion editors are ‘Salon Unique’ by Petra Méchurová and Oskar, Libor Šula and ‘Portrait’ by Michal Zapoměl. They’re also hair salon branches such as Cut & Colour, Haircity and Klier at every shopping mall that offer exquisite quality styling and more cost-effective prices. For a real bargain, go to some Prague suburbs and, if you aren’t bothered about having wet hair when you leave the salon, decline the blow-drying to reduce your bill.
Examples of foreign-owned hair-dressers are Mark Weston at Trichomania, a hair-dresser who’s crafted his own array of products, and the people of James Hair who focus on Japanese straightening. To get a trim from a stylist who speaks fluent English but will charge less than one thousand Crowns, we recommend Mark Phillip, Madrý Slon and Head. Filip Gregor is another who offers a cheaper blow out (about three hundred and fifty Crowns). Usually, at the more expensive end of things, ‘Cheap and Chic Tuesday’ at Toni & Guy’s draws in clients with seven hundred and fifty Crowns haircuts. Martha’s Inspiration will do weaves, braids and black hair, and Dayla Ferguson is a mobile stylist from the US who will trim your hair for under five hundred Crowns and has built her business purely by word of mouth.
