Where to find a hairdresser in Budapest to avoid inconvenient surprises

The list of celebrity hairdressers and hairdressing salons in Budapest.

During the holiday, one ought to take it easy. It would not be a problem in itself, as this is the point of going on holiday, and certainly, the fact is to gain experiences by participating in as many interesting programs as possible.

Whether it is a theatre visit, opera or a party, they have one thing in common: it is bad manners to go there as if we had been pulled out of our own baggage.

Although not a dress makes a man, the head does. You do not happily go even to the cornerstone with your hair sparking a reaction of „OMG!”.

So, in order to avoid this, you can entrust your hair to the care of professional hands in one of the hairdressers or beauty salons of Budapest. There are heaps of them.

English speaking hairdressers in Budapest

As making a great hairstyle is just as a sensitive area as nano-surgery, you had better not drop in on simply one of the hairdressers in the street.

A very important pre-requisite and filter is if the given salon has an English website/menu, because it is rather difficult to indicate and show with your hands what you want, and communication problems can lead to terrible disasters in the case of hairdressing. So, it is essential that the hairdressers speak at least English.

As for their categories, there are more options to choose from:

Private salons

Most of the salons existing in Budapest fall into this category. Most of them provide reliable services in basic needs, but if you have extra wishes, you had better check the portfolio of the salon.

In the downtown and nearby as well as in Buda, there are more exclusive hairdressers’ salons where the price range is higher.

Franchise stores

These are mostly good at hairstyles which are usual and trendy, so you had better not expect specialties.

However, they can provide a quick haircut without an appointment.

Celebrity hairdressers’ salons

They are run by well-known Hungarian hair stylists, therefore, the standard is very high.

Their prices obviously reflect the high-quality service, but in return for that, the risk is the lowest here.

Hair-care brand salons

These salons are also run in a franchise system, however, here the professional background and the tools are determined by the standards of the world brands.

Their prices are different, in general, we can say that they are similar to those of the celebrity hairdressers’ salons.

Hairdressing is not only the pleasure of gentlewomen. Nowadays, the revival of barbershops in Budapest makes hair-care more attractive for gentlemen.

They are similar to men’s clubs rather than traditional hairdressers’ salons, so much so that no entry is allowed for ladies!

It is common that guests are received with a welcome drink, sports broadcasts can be seen on TV, and the barbers – who take good care of facial hair as well – have quite an easy-going communication style.

The atmosphere makes the time spent here special in itself, and it is made even more special by the traditional interior. Their price range is rather wide, and they mostly serve guests dropping in without an appointment.

This is the dream of a spontaneous man.
