Hey guys, I was wondering if you or someone that you know can cut hair. (Give a fade and a lineup)
My hair is long and I don't feel like putting gel everyday! If you're in Busan please give me a shout!

Just print a picture of a style of hair cut that you like and go to a salon, they should be able to do it.

I did this and they got it pretty spot on, it was cheap too 12,000, and I have long hair.

Attention ladies (and gentlemen)!! Especially blonds!!

I have had some major anxiety over getting my hair done here in Korea. I've had a few disaster experiences, but for a while now I've been going to an amazing stylist named Marie. She just opened her own shop in Shinchon and it is awesome!! She, as well as her co-owner are fluent in English. The prices are really reasonable too.

To make an appointment e-mail the co-owner Charlie: hopjump@hanmail.net
He will give you great directions to the salon too.
You can see pictures of the salon on my blog:

Thanks for the link. I referred this to my blonde friend whose stylist had just left her regular salon and they would not tell her where she moved to. Lo and behold....this is her! My friend is very grateful. Thanks again.  :)

Can anyone recommend hairdressers in Seoul that speak English and understand western hair?

I usually have 2 different coloured highlights put in my hair but when I tried explaining this to local hairdressers they didn't understand the method. They wanted to dye my whole head on colour and then add the highlights.

Thanks!

I got to the Green Turtle in Itaewon. I've been going there for the past 2 years to get blonde highlights/low-lights. 2 colors and a cut is approx. 85,000won. The hairdresser's name is Michelle and his English is pretty good. It's on the main corner in Itaewon in the same building as Quizno's and the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf (on the 3rd floor).

I used to go to the Green Turtle, I switched to Zen about a year ago. Michelle is nice and his English is decent, but he tended to do whatever he wanted when it came to my hair. I changed to Zen, near Ewah University. They have an English speaking staff and do a pretty good job. I've had my hair colored twice and a few different cuts. It's a bit more expensive than the Green Turtle, I think 120,000 is what I pay for color/cut.

It's on Line 2, Ewah University. 02) 362-4125. I forget the exit, but if you're interested you can PM me and I'll give you more details.

I agree - he does sort of do whatever he wants but you can mostly trust him. He did my blonde highlights better than my hairdresser at home. He also avoids using ammonia dyes so your hair doesn't get too damaged.

I have always used Lucy.  She was first at Zen in Ewha, then moved to Hair and Joy in Hongdae. 

I just got a text from her last week.  She has started her own salon in Sinchon.  Her number is 02-325-2225.

I have gotten my hair highlighted with her my whole time here, and she has done a fantastic job! :)

How much is a cut at Hair and Joy? I usually go to the Green Turtle but, like everyone said, Michelle kind of likes to do what he wants to do - but it is cheap!

The number for Hair and Joy is 02-363-4253.  Many foreigners go here so it's best to call for an appointment first.  PM me if you need any more information!

The number for Hair and Joy is 02-363-4253 but the only hair dresser there (Lucy) that I know has just opened up her own salon.  I think many people have been happy with Johnny, but I've never used him personally. 

Lucy's number is 02-325-2225. :)

Does anyone know of a decent hairdresser or salon in or around the Seoul area.

I would prefer somewhere, where people speak a little English and where they are used to cutting western styles and hair.

Much appreciated.

Check out Hair N Joy in Hongdae~ They're about 35,000 for a female haircut and their English is pretty good.  They're used to cutting foreigner hair too.  I was told a lot of the hairdressers there were trained in England.

Park Sun Chul is an expensive hairdresser franchise located throughout Korea.

The hairdressers there are professionally trained here and constantly re-trained abroad. (Japan, france, California, NYC: all places my PSC adjumma has been sent in the last four years).

They know what they are doing.   

The experience comes with a price though.  Guys don't get out for under 40,000 for a trim.  Women can rack up w500,000 for their hair experience.

The shops are snobby and if you go in wearing a t-shirt and sweats, you might get turned away. 

If you want the names of the shops in Incheon that are foreigner friendly, PM me.
