Looking for English speaking hair stylist in Basel.

We are here for the summer and do not speak German. We are very close the Marketplatz and the number 1 and 3 tram. Two of my my sons (age 8 & 4) both need a haircut and so do I. We all have different types of haircuts. I don't feel comfortable just wandering into a salon and hoping they do a good job. I need a recommendation from someone who was happy with their kid's haircut. Thank you for any help you can offer.

Re: Looking for English speaking hair stylist in Basel.

hi
I went to Aveda in the centre of town, not far from Marktplatz where some of the staff spoke English. It's expensive, BUT it looked good at the end. We too have two kids and took them into a salon near where we live where they didn't speak English, nor us German and oh my WHAT a mistake!!! Have a look at their website, I'm sure they do something on a Wednesday if you have your hair done, the kids get done as well for free?

Re: Looking for English speaking hair stylist in Basel.

I can highly recommend Barry J. Cook (www.hairdesignbybarry.ch).

Never had so many compliments about my hair during my all life
Nice and talented hair stylist. Classy cut.

Coming from Paris I was quite afraid of what I would find in Basel, , and I am really happy now to have found Barry !

My wife also recommends Gemma (she's in the UK at moment) back in a few weeks, not sure how long you can wait :-)

The last I knew Barry didn't cut children's hair.....could've changed though. I agree that he is fabulous with women's hair though!

Re: Looking for English speaking hair stylist in Basel.

Hi OP,

You can also try Wayne Carrier (Prestige Salon - I think that is its name). I have been getting my hair done by this fellow Canadian for years (both my stints in Basel). He now cuts my young daughter's and my husbands hair as well. We are really happy with him You would want to do this before the 14th, though, as he is heading out on vacation after that time for awhile...

He is located a short walk from Barfusserplatz tramstop and his is number is +41 76 587 88 42.

Cheers,

I've also been to Wayne and he is good. Aveda does a nice job too, but as mentioned above it is pricey!
