I spotted a little local hairdresser on the corner of Anfu Rd & Wukang Rd and thought my long locks needed a quick trim. These little hairdressers pepper the city because millions of people here don’t have the best places to wash. Western and Chinese hair differs greatly so there’s a big risk using local hairdressers for styling or colouring but they are fine for a quick trim. You need to watch them with their scissor dancing though or you will end up looking like their favourite Chinese pop star.
If you need a good style and colour Shanghai has some excellent expat and local hairdressers who will keep you in the style you are accustomed to. They won’t be charging 35rmb for a trim, wash and dry like our local hairdresser Mr. Xu. Just a wee tad more.
