What is Paris if not the world centre of style and chic. And although that normally comes at a high price, and is usually for window shopping only, here is an idea for you to get the 5 star treatment while in Paris, and leave feeling you ready for the runway.
The reputable hair salon Toni&Guy established in the U.K. 45 years ago, is an icon of fashion and quality. They feature at fashion weeks around the world, and style many stars. Luckily for us they also have a school for hair styling, and where there are hair styling students there must be people getting their hair cut, right?
While in Paris you can call (by appointment only) and get yourself a Paris hair cut and color – for free!
122, rue du Faubourg-Saint-Honoré, 8e. Paris.
They also have Hair styling Acadamys in several other countries, so check out the list on their site.
Metro: Miromesnil or Saint-Philippe-du-Roule.
You have to be under 30, or have a valid student card. If you know you will be in Paris call as far in advance as possible, 3 weeks is ideal. They will give you a lot of attention so plan on a good 2 hours at least. There are 25 branches of Toni&Guy in Paris so don’t get confused, this address is the Academy, where the hair cutting takes place.
