Recently, DominCesme wrote to Izmir Blog asking about a good hairdressing salon in Izmir:
Izmir Blogger is very sensitive to this subject -having grown my once short hair since I moved here in fear of having to avoid mirrors after the monthly haircut. Also, my first experience in a salon here meant I actually got a bonus shower when having the shampoo rinsed out of my hair. Luckily it was summertime. ;-)
So, if you have your highlights done in Izmir and are happy with your hair salon, or have any suggestions for DominCesme please post a comment to this post and make a woman happy.
One recommendation: the salon* is located in Konak Pier, they use l'Oréal products, the woman I dealt with is Mucize (miracle in Turkish) and she worked as a hairdresser in Germany for 20 years (speaks German). Prices are apparently a bit higher than in other salons (but everything in Konak Pier seems to be more expensive).
These are the prices they gave me:
Kesim/ cut: 25 ytl
Röfle/highlights: 130 ytl
Kisa röfle/highlights on short hair: 100 ytl
Fön/hair drying: 10 ytl
manikür/manicure: 15 ytl
pedikür/pedicure: 20 ytl
*The salon's name is "cut Diba" Tel: 0232.446.04.51
Enter Konak Pier from the entrance on the left, (along the sea, next to Burger King) turn left immediately after entering, "cut Diba" is opposite a shop called "Vestel". They have loads of L'Oréal ads and products in their window.
Alternatively: Hotels are a good idea in foreign cities. You could try the Crowne Plaza or the Hilton.
A piece of advice: a picture is worth a thousand words (especially when you don't speak the language!) so take a photo of yourself with you or even something from a magazine illustrating what you mean by "natural blond" or "golden blond" or whatever it is you want.
Hope this helps & Let us know how it goes/went! ;-)
