There’s a lot of hairdressers all around Paris.
Don’t know anyone spec. in Goth but my hairdresser is really good: Dorah Salon, you can look it up online. It’s at Rue Saint Martin near Beauborg in the 4/th3rd arrondissement.
They take like 60 euros, don’t know what that is converted to US. But it’s good, they do a lot of fashion shows and are fun and brave, so I would believe your niece would be happy. let me know if you have any more questions.
Thanks! I think that’s about $75 US. I’ll give the info to the lucky travelers, though I think they’re hoping for a little less. They’re used to small town salons.
I’m not aware of anywhere that would be under $50. Paris is an expensive place and I’ve found hair salons (even a blowout in the hypermarche in the suburbs!) to be very expensive. Maybe not the best way to spend their funds if $ is limited when there’s SO MUCH to choose from!
Yeah, you’re probably right. She gets really cute cuts/styles at home.
Appreciate your comment very much!
I’m with dmsgirl. On my many trips to Paris, I have never got a haircut – even the barbers are a rip-off.
My gf who’s been living there for 8 years says this:
“seriously it is too damned expensive to cut hair in paris… and that is why mine is long… sorry I can t help!
i lived for long in Paris, and if you are looking for a bargain, you can get a haircut for 6.50€ (at the time, 2006, for a man) i guess for a girl it might be up to 10€ (around 13$).
Plus this is the chance to visit the “little india” from Paris, which very few people know.
It is not just hairdresser, it’s a street with a dozen of them.
Ah finally it seems like it’s still 6€ see google maps :
Thanks! I think my family will be interested in the neighborhood whether they get a cut or not!
Bah — yes, almost everything is more expensive in Paris.
I’m going to go out on a limb and suggest Space Hair in the Marais… It’s a well-known salon with experienced stylists that are well-acquainted with alternative styles, and it’s a fun experience. Your mileage may vary; she can decide at the door if it’s her thing.
Cuts start at 45€ ($55 dollars), but there’s a 10% discount between 10am-1pm — note that their prices scale according to hair style “difficulty”, up to 70€.
Ooh, thanks, that’s nicely specific!
When I lived in Paris, I got my hair cut for free at the Toni & Guy school near the Louvre. They have specific days of the week when they offer cuts and dyes. My friend went with me on a whim, and the instructor asked her to stay to be the model for his afternoon demo. Just call and find out what time to show up. The only downside is that this is artistic, not just technical practice for the students — meaning that you have limited say in how they will cut your hair. But my experiences were very positive, and the instructor hangs quite close to the students to make sure there are no disasters.
Ah, thanks! My sister was thinking about the school option, but I’m not sure we had a school in mind. Thanks!
