There's a walk in barbers at Albisriederplatz that does a good job for 25 CHF. Cheapest I have found.
In that place you get what you pay for. They only know one haircut. If it fits you ...

Re: General Hairdresser / Barber thread, Zurich region

Has anyone ever had their beard styled? I have a comparably mighty beard these days and I've decided to do Wolverine for Halloween. And so that it doesn't look completely crappy, I'd like to have that done right. Also the hair, of course.

So any advice would be more than welcome.

... bloody beard.

Re: General Hairdresser / Barber thread, Zurich region

Have since switched to Memomen in Josefstr. after the Brazilian guy Andre left Faktor 5 a while back.

Best to be overly specific when detailing what you want or they just go nuts and give you pointed sideburns and an extremely tight shape up or something.

Price has gone up slightly I believe, 32 I think for a cut, maybe a little more or less, and if I go after work they'll ask me to the basin seats to wash out my hair first which can add a buck or two.

Unfortunately last time I went, the guy (who I've admittedly never seen there before) was much more interested in arguing with his two friends parked on the couch than paying attention to the cut, left one side completely untouched and the other with a drasticly far back shape-up. There was no mirror to check the back (which I found when I got home was half done) and it was quite unpleasant breathing in his smoke and coffee breath while he gesticulated and got quite irate with his pals.
If you're going to have an argument, I'd rather you do it when you're not swinging a cutthroat razor around my neck.

Generally pleased with their cuts though, for Zurich at least. When I take a trip to my local barber back home probably once a year, they ask where I've been, if I caught the football, and who the last guy that did my hair was and why they left it all uneven.

Caroline Rohwer Hairdressing in Seefeld, Zurich is by far the BEST! She always knows what style or color will look best on you and therefore you can always count on her. She is English speaking, which is great for me as an American living here. She is fun, professional and always making you feel and look beautiful! Definitely recommend to all my friends!

I've been using Sinfonia in Wollishofen for the last 6 months as it's close to where I live. Great attention to detail and haven't been disappointed yet. 60 quid for a mens cut so not cheap but no complaints given the quality.

ive been styling my goatee for the past 5 years in barber shops all over the world. since i live in zurich i invested in one. his address is Uraniastrasse 16 its a walking distance from HB.
his name is Govan, and his english is rather good. take a picture regardless of what you want. theres another guy that works there that used to style beards for the acting academy, but i never used him, i only spoke to him briefly.
bear in mind that a shave and styling costs about 20CHF upwards if you want special treatment...

Re: General Hairdresser / Barber thread, Zurich region

Do anyone know know if Mel is back at the Caroline Rohwer salon (she is on the website). I founds thing very chaotic there with only 2 stylists and so I stopped going but will go back if she is back or if the salon is fully staffed again.

Re: Men's Haircuts in Zurich

My partner goes to this barber. They have a branch just round the corner from Central tram stop at the end of Zähringerstrasse.

Re: Men's Haircuts in Zurich

Miro Coiffeur is a good barber shop. The guys there are friendly, and you can a scissor cut, razor cut, or a more Zuri style. Their info is at http://www.mirocoiffeur.ch/

Re: General Hairdresser / Barber thread, Zurich region

Picking this thread up..

So far I found only one lady who understood what I wanted and did a great job.. Will not post the name or the price here, but it was not cheap
Second best was Saleh at Seefeldstrasse

Can someone recommend a hairstylist (ladies, short hair), who does not do what he/she feels like? I mean advice is always appreciated, but I explain in detail, bring a picture and still get something else, something they think fits me (and it doesn't!). Many thanks
