HELP: Where to cut my hair in Q8?


I am the biggest Salon Gobesa in Q8. If you follow me on twitter you may recall my epic tweets on getting highlights in a respectable well known salon in Q8 and how it went severely wrong.

Now i am in desperate need of cutting my hair. Not just a trim, a good respectable hair cut. I was planning on cutting it in the same salon i had my highlights in and they cut well with a heat thing scissors b3d… but i vowed never to go back.

Now i am lost. I literally am lost, i have no place to cut my hair.

I need a place that is: Professional, Clean, Respect their Clients and their Appointments, Do not allow someone to cut in unannounced. and They would be able to give me a modern hair cut without too much philosophical notions and experiments. The Hairdresser should have what is called “Green Hands” too. All British Salons are out for they choke when they see my hair (So no Tony & Guy or Cutting Edge or Strands)… Carita is out too… So is La Mode…

Where do i go for a haircut? Help Me out Please!

    What about 5 Senses? I haven’t tried it personally but heard it’s good….. I don’t follow you on Twitter but would you mind telling me what happened (and where) with your highlights? its always good to know about potential places to avoid in Kuwait!

    Go to Blush in shwai5


  6. Toni & Guy – Al Corniche – Ask for Allison 🙂 I reviewed it on my blog too

      I tried toni & guy before and my experience wasn’t that great. The service is good but the end result was horrible…


  7. I go to a place called Thai Lana in Salmiya. It’s small, quaint, cute, clean and the staff is very friendly. I used to go to Strands, but I didn’t see anything special about it– and i always used to walk out 20+ KD less out of my pocket. One of the owners of Thai Lana is named May (she is Thai), and she is the one that cuts hair. She’s great, and a cut is only 5KD! I referred them to one of my friends, and now she’s a regular there as well 🙂

    Here is their info:

    مادري ليش تذكرت فيديو مصوره زوج عمتي وحنا صغار على بونا نصلي ويخلي القطوة تمر جدامنا وواحد يقول تت والثانية ترد عليه ليش قلت تت بطلت صلاتك وأأأأنا أقول أشونننننننننننننننننني ماقلت تتت ههههههههه

    makes sense?

    You really need to be careful when you choose your hairdresser, I always book for a blow dry first and try to get to salon a bit early, watch her in action etc.
    I would never book a cut just on the word of someone else…..this is my hair we’re talking about!
    Emillie is a French stylist, she really is amazing and I dont know about having “green hands” but what I have noticed is that my hair seems to be in much better condition and growing faster since I have been going to her. She is at soho 23902077


  21. Go to laila harmony in shi3ib al ba7ry ou ask for zainab she’s an artist mashallaah


  22. Brush salon bel tha7ya eb block 3! yam fudruckers! Ask for Meera or Zizi or Najla! Kilihum zaineen


  23. Posted by giggles on August 22, 2010 at 1:05 PM

    la mode salon yarmouk block 3 and tresses salon jabriya infront of fuddruckers 🙂


  24. Can you please share your bad experiences?
    it would help the rest of us 😛
    I don’t fancy having half my hair chopped off either!
