Moving to a new city is challenging for many reasons, not least of which is finding your new regulars – from watering holes to greengrocers and that all-entrusted hairdresser. Thankfully, the latter are in abundance in Hong Kong – a number of skilled stylists in the city are on hand to handle your cut and colour needs…
On the edge of the Graham Street market lies an eco-conscious hair salon unlike any other in Hong Kong. Love Hair uses ethical products free from metals and ammonia, treating you while you treat your tresses. With interiors designed using repurposed materials and with an emphasis on gentle, natural and kind products, the aptly named salon is the perfect place for a little green pampering.
Paul Gerrard has been cutting and styling its loyal Hong Kong clientele since 1996. Offering hair, skin and makeup services by a team of friendly and approachable stylists ready to personalise their services, it’s clear to see why. The salon accepts online bookings now, making it even easier for women on the move to book in a treat.
In keeping with the growing conscience of businesses in Hong Kong, Aveda’s cruelty-free products are a popular choice. The in-salon treatments and styling are inspired by Ayurvedic philosophies, designed to help you make the most of your designated pampering time.
Spread across multiple floors, The Strand has become something of an icon among Hong Kong salons. With stations for men and women and a wide range of salon services on offer within a luxurious, lofty space, the women’s salon occupies an entire, separate floor. Ensuring it uses only the best, The Strand employs organic, plant-based treatments and colourants on clients.
If you’re cautious about putting your locks in the hands of a new hairdresser, you might feel more comfortable heading to one of the city’s branches of your favourite high street salon. With more than 400 salons worldwide and two in Hong Kong (plus an Essensuals salon in Central), its stylists continue to deliver trusted cuts around the city.
