African hair salon [Zürich]

Hey girls! I need a haircut, but if you know anything about African hair texture, then you know that not everyone is qualified to handle it. Does anyone know of a good hair salon that has specializes in textured hair and does good quality work. If the salon doesn't have experience for a fact, then please don't mention them.

Re: African hair salon [Zürich]

Hi I am new to this site and was just directed to your thread. I too am looking for a hair salon for African hair. I am wearing my hear natural these days and would like to find a place specializes in natural hair styles in or around Zurich (twists,locs or braids)

I'll be moving to Zurich in a month and need to find a place that I can trust.

Thanks.

Re: African hair salon [Zürich]

Hello there,

I have gotten my hair done a few couple times since I've been in Zurich. If you need locks or braids I can say that Coiffure Ume isn't bad coiffure-ume.ch and if you need your hair cut and straightened Tony & Guy isn't bad. I usually get my hair cut once every 4-5 months and just straighten my hair myself in between time. I've yet to find any great hairdressers, but I'd go back to either one of the salons I mentioned if I needed something done.

I hope that helps!
DK

Re: African hair salon [Zürich]

There is an African hairdresser at Militärstrasse (near Langstrasse) bus stop in Zürich, I've seen others in the area, might be your best bet as many Africans live there.

Re: African hair salon [Zürich]

Hi all- this and all other threads I've seen on the site are quite old - I tried many of the salons and most of the numbers are no longer functioning.

I am looking for a salon with reliable stylists, experienced with black/African hair. I typically get a relaxer and cut.

Although, I am aware that there are many African hair shops along the Langstrasse, but I'm hoping for a real word of mouth recommendation.

If you have someone good that has your done hair - I want to hear from you. Thanks!

PS I have been going to Alice at Francesca Freeman in the Niederdorf and she is wonderful, but the shop seems to have closed, sadly.

Hi Lafarfalla, I wanted to find out if you had any luck finding a hair salon for black hair last year. I'm moving to Luzern in June and am hoping there is something decent in Zurich. I used to have locks but I have recently cut them and now I have braids, so I want to know whether to come with braids or not.

Help please. Thanks

oh and one other thing, what is the average cost of getting braids done and the cost of a pack?

Re: African hair salon [Zürich]

Oh, Chf 200? It is quite expensive. Also, it's a lot of work hehe
Can I ask what kind do you want?
Just it is good to know in the future when it will be good.
Can we stay in touch?

Re: African hair salon [Zürich]

yes it is a lot of work. At home altogether I would pay USD 60. I want to get thin braids but not micro with human hair(the cost of which is not incl.) it's called pick and drop-where only a small portion is braided and the rest left. For sur we can stay in touch. You're in Zurich which is apparently the most expensive city in the world so let me know how you do if you come across something better.
