Good to see another blog about Turkey having started up. I came here via a post on Global Voices online in which your blog is mentioned.

Good luck,
From an expat in Ankara

Hi, Im looking for a good hairdressers in Izmir and dont even know where to start. I live in Cesme and have been to a salon here but they're just not trained to the standard that they are in UK. I want highlights so if you know of a good salon that will colour my hair without turning it peroxide white please let me know.

Many thanks

Hi Dom in Cesme!
Yes, indeed... I see your problem. I had highlights done shortly after arriving here and did not enjoy the experience and found the result to blond too my taste. I did, however, find a hairdresser who I thought was better than the first one I tried. The lady worked in Germany for over 20 years as a hairdresser and her name is Mucize (means miracle in Turkish). She works in Konak Pier, in a place called "cut Diba" (enter Konak Pier from the left/side entrance and the hairdresser is on your left opposite a shop called "Vestel". Tel:(0232)446 04 51 - but no need to call to make an appointment, just pop in. A piece of advice, especially if you don't speak fluent Turkish - a picture is worth a thousand words. Take a photograph or pic from a magazine to show the color result you want.
Good luck and let us know how it went! ;-)
