(stolen from my friend Anna's facebook~ hehe~~ Unfortunatly, I'm a complete idiot and forgot to bring my camera battery with me back to Ohio and my laptop doesn't have a micro SD slot, so I have no photos on me..... I'll figure it out later -n-;;)
Ok, so my review of the salon is that.....it's a pretty good salon! I'd give it maybe a 3.75/5 stars. AND I got my hair washed, cut, and styled for 25000 won (about $22 USD)!! SO cheap compared to what's available around me! The people were really nice, and imo, the male hair assistant that washed my hair was super cute~ As for language barriers, they all mostly spoke English, so it was ok... but unfortunately, the only one who couldn't understand English was my stylist... -_-;; (so I had to dock some points for that....) so I just picked a haircut from a picture and they did it from that. Not bad~ They have some mad skills. Hehe, and it didn't even take that long! I also really liked how they didn't cut your hair dry like in Singapore.... Those people are just stupid! Don't they know doing that will cause more breakage! D: Also~ while you're waiting, they give you some sort of healthy ginseng juice and some cookies so it was nice~
(They gave you a business card as well. I thought that was cute.)
So for my haircut! Here's a before with my buddy Anna~ :D
I really liked how they styled my hair the best~ I wish I could learn to do something like that. It was all styled using a blow dryer and a round brush.... so I guess I'll have to buy those in the future.... o:
So what do you think? I think not bad right~ Overall, if you're in the HongDae area (which I absolutely LOVE! They set up like a night market at night and they have a bunch of neat stores! This is the normally university/ college going youngster area I think because a major uni is nearby~ So yea! Make sure to visit this area if you have the chance!!! AND make sure to budget enough time! I know we didn't have nearly enough time to check out everything. So sad. :c ) I would definitely recommend this salon!
(Taken with my iphone~! LOL. I realized that my outfit looks really similar to the other one! ;D But this black dress was short, had a bow, and was A line. The other one, when I was getting my hair done was a simple black asymmetrical cut dress.)
