My barnet is sorted in London (which I visit regularly for my monthly dose of stimulation and cultural and retail excitement) for a mere 6GBP (about 12CHF).
It is done by Topper cuts at the top of Charing Cross Rd in cental London, and it is staffed by a team of primarily Polish hairdressers that do a great job.
Diamond Dave, what is "my barnet"? Google was not my friend.

And to get back on topic- do they also do your hair colouring for 6gbp?

Re: Need a good English speaking hair color specialist in Zurich!

You need more friends and fewer lovers. Barnet is explained here. Hair colouring ? Obviously you have not notice my recent lack of grey hairs despite been driven to my wits end by patent stupidity of some posters

dave

From wikipedia:
"The town (Barnet)was the site of the Battle of Barnet in 1471, where Yorkist troops led by King Edward IV killed the rebellious "Kingmaker" Richard Neville, Earl of Warwick and Warwick's brother, John Neville, 1st Marquess of Montagu.
It is the site of an ancient and well-known horse fair, hence the Cockney rhyming slang of "Barnet" for "hair". The fair dates back to 1588 when Queen Elizabeth I granted a charter to the Lord of the Manor of Barnet the right to hold a twice yearly fair.[2]

I wasn't referring to your posts. But some recent threads have required me to apply the "never argue with an idiot" rule....

Hello Everyone

I have been living in Zurich for about 5 years and have not had any luck finding an English speaking hair color specialist. I've been to three different stylists in Zurich and have not been very satisfied.

I know it's not just me, because I love my stylist in the US. She uses three different types of color - 2 colors and a bleach and she weaves super tight so it looks natural and not chunky.

Most stylists I've been to here are too chunky or the color fades in about two weeks. Yes, I've been vocal about what I want - but have yet to get it! I am absolutely willing to pay a few hundred CHF if the color lasts and looks good.

If any of you out there are blonde, get regular highlights and love your stylist (and he/she speaks English), I would love to know who they are!

THANKS!

Try Norris King at the J-7 hair lounge in Zürich. He is amazing!!! The colourists are quite good as well.

Found a good hair stylist in Basel!

Hello All

Just wanted to follow-up on this thread to let you know that I had my appointment with Barry at Hair Design by Barry in Basel yesterday.

I am very happy to report that I love it! We started with a short consult to understand what I was looking for and then he went to work. He used a lightener and two colors and I am really pleased with the results! My look is natural and full of texture. If you are blonde and looking for a good colorist I would really recommend him!

Regarding my cut, that also looks fabulous and frames my face just the way I wanted it.

I took the train to Basel and just grabbed the tram. His shop is quite central and easy to find. I will definitely be heading back and maybe next time bring a few girlfriends or my hubbie and make a day of it.

Thanks very much Barry - this is what I've been looking for for FIVE years!
Thanks also to all the EF recommendations to visit him - it was GREAT advice!

Re: Need a good English speaking hair color specialist in Zurich!

Hello Monkeynose,

I am happy for you and am glad you had a great hair day.

The old slogan from the 1960s to 70s applies. " I would walk a mile for a Camel"

Well, I would take a 1 hour train for an expert hairstyle and color any day!

Enjoy! and great job AGAIN!!!! Barry!

Re: Found a good hair stylist in Basel!

Hi! That sounds like a good job done

I had a really good colorist work on my long brunette hair about 3 years ago and that was in Dubai, since then I am reluctant to try someone new as there is few colorists out there who understand how to chose the right sort of blond highlights and lowlights to go with asian and indian skin tones.

I am due to make a visit to Dubai in a months time and just want to know if its worth it me making a visit to this salon everyone is raving about in Basel. Incidently, could you also say what it cost you (the cut and color)?

It is SO worth it! I am back for more colour in the next few weeks. Barry is magic with colour and the products he uses are new to me and some of the best I'ver ever had put in my hair. Good Luck!

For anyone who is still looking for a great hairdresser based in Zurich, I will definately recommend Gino at Hair Solution. I found him really nice and he did a great job making my long straight hair looking full of life and best of all, he's in Zurich

I went to Zelo for highlights in my darkbrown hair. The male person (I won't call names) did a terrible job, white in the lower layers and orange on top.
