Hi I could really do with a hair cut while in Ho Chi Minh. I don't mind paying good money for one. Would be helpful for a good English speaking one that I could explain what I would like. Could anyone reccomend a good salon? Thanks
I usually pull up a picture of myself after a fresh haircut and say "Cắt như hình ảnh này" or similar. Luckily, my guy down the street knows me by now. I get the same treatment his Vietnamese customers do; sans the ear cleaning, though
Try Mr Kim who has several salons in D1 - I used to use the one on Le Thanh Ton, opposite the Norfolk Hotel. They speak English and you can get a good head/shoulder massage with your haircut too. And no funny business!
There are heaps of salons all around the market area ... you won't have any problems finding one all over dist 1There are even a couple with gorgeous girls dressed in skimpy bar-girl type outfits where you will think you're in a nightclub not a hair salon.
