Re: Hairstylist Basel 20 years experience

Hey Barry,
Im living in Saint-Sulpice (been in CH 1.5 weeks now) and am venturing to a haridresser this Friday in Lausanne. Im getting my highlights redone but am nervous about a cut. Unfortunately you are about 2 hrs away from me and I just dont see myself traveling that far every 4 - 6 weeks for colour or alternately a cut. Can you recommend anyone in Lausanne, Saint-sulpice or Morge area that you know are good?

would really value a recommendation.

Jen

Jen sorry but I do not know anyone there. Try posting on EF looking for Hairstylist Lausanne. There is a big expat community in Lausanne so I am sure there are some recommendations. I actually had a girl come by train from Lugano last week for a cut and she says she will be back for color. That was amazing to me! Good Luck

Re: Hairstylist Basel 20 years experience

Just wanted to thank everyone who has contributed to this thread and a very special thanks to Barry. Made my first trip to Basel on Friday and was very happy when I left Barry's salon. Thank you Barry for coming to Switzerland! It's good to know a fellow American (& Pennsylvanian!). Hope your hair turned out as great as mine did! Thanks again.

Re: Hairstylist Basel 20 years experience

I hope all my friends and clients have a wonderful new year with lots of happiness, health and prosperity. Thank you all again for your friendship and loyalty. A year ago I would never have dreamed that all that has happened in 2008 would have been possible. I truly feel blessed, lucky, fortunate(whatever you want to call it) for all that has happened to me this year. All the best in 2009!!!!

Re: Hairstylist Basel 20 years experience

Have been meaning to write here for a while, but just wanted to say a huge thankyou to Barry for the stellar job he did or my cut and colour (foils) late last year. Absolutely no complaints...I love everything...!

Was a great day trip from Zurich and a good opportunity to see Basel.

Thoroughly recommend going if you want a great hairdresser!

cheers,

Mel

And thank you Barry!

Re: Hairstylist Basel 20 years experience

Yet again Barry triumphed over my hair! Having missed a couple of cuts / colours, by the time I got to Barry yesterday, I should have been wearing a hat to hide the hair! However, despite going in as the wild woman of Borneo, I came out glossy, perfectly coiffured, with an excellent set of highlights which look great, and a good cut. Makes me look younger & feel better - what more can I ask for!

Thanks again

Re: Hairstylist Basel 20 years experience

I have drove from Zurich today to see Barry for the first time. I had bad experience with hair coloring in Zurich and after reading everyone's reviews, I decided to give it a try in Basel.

I love my hair Barry did an excellent job fixing my color and my hair is shiny!!! I highly recommend Barry to anyone in Switzerland in need of a GREAT hairstylist And I got to read all English magazines again

I will be heading back for my next appointment in March!

P.s. Basel is so adorable, that it is nice to come there for a visit as well as get your hair done. It was only an hour drive from Zurich.

Re: Hairstylist Basel 20 years experience

Let's face it: east, west, Barry is the best!

I was paranoid about hairstylists until today. Now i'm so excited somebody like him exists and happy to look into the mirror again. Thank you for the best haircut i ever had. All the best, Sh.

Re: Hairstylist Basel 20 years experience

Just wanted to post my fab experience at Barry's today
I have thick, curly hair and have had more than my fair share of dreadful hair cuts - the kind where you run home to wash it, then wear a hat for a week. It was time for a change though, and the reviews I'd read on here made me pluck up the courage to go to Barry - and I am so glad that I did. The experience was a pleasure, and my hair looks superb. It is shorter, bouncier and glossy (I had it coloured too, and it looks like a fabulously natural version of my hair) - I went home feeling fantastic.

Thank you so much!
Sarah

Re: Hairstylist Basel 20 years experience

I highly recommend Barry!!! I am very picky as far as it regards hairdressing, and I found Barry simply perfect! He understands your needs and desires, he listens and is also very creative. I went to him three times so far, once he fixed my colour with much care and made it just wonderful. He's a real pro, every time I go to him I enjoy very chic haircuts.

Re: Hairstylist Basel 20 years experience

Hi everyone,

just wanted to share with EF my experience with Barry.
He did miracles with my hair. Furthemore, I visited him just before my two interviews. I was feeling very unsure, especially since I had been out of work for months and was looking horrible. However I got a complete new look and guess what... a new job.

Thanks Barry!

Re: Hairstylist Basel 20 years experience

wow, Barry! Looks like you are very worth a visit! I have been with my hairstylist for a decade now back in Singapore so very picky with whom I go to. Barry, do you do Asian hair too? I will contact you for an appointment later this month!

Cheers!
