UPDATE JUNE 9 2014: Ken Donji has moved in with Salon ThirT2 on 32 Cochrane Street now
This is not so much about one picture of the week, but actually a recommendation. Patrick and I tried a few hairdressers (even one in a backstreet of Causeway Bay) until we found this place and fell in love with it.
It’s quirky, run by a bunch of cool looking guys, who know the tools of the trade and are always friendly. They speak enough English to understand what I want and they do like to make their own recommendations, which always turn out better than what I would have tried to do.
I love that every time I go there, I can turn up short notice (just call a few hours before) and they are open every day at least until 9pm. The guy who does my hair always takes his time to cut it meticulously with a pair of scissors and then spends 30 minutes to blow-drying my hair carefully. He does it in a lovely style, trying to replicate the look and feel of the Chinese hair, which often looks like black silk. Unfortunately (for him), I’ve got a little curl in my hair, so it does take him really a lot of patience to get my hair nice and straight.
The prices are absolutely fair – starting at 150 HKD for a wash, cut and blow-dry job. For a full-head colour using Japanese colour it’s 480 HKD.
UPDATE JUNE 9, 2014: Prices now start at 190 HKD for shampoo, style and cut. I’m sure that the price for colour increased too!
