Chopping the mop
One thing that is hard to find in Bangkok is a hairdresser that’s used to cutting ‘farang’ hair. Unfortunately we’re not all blessed with the Thai’s lovely dark, shiny straight hair. I wish. Mine for example is just this non descript wave that has a mind of it’s own. You can’t cut wavy hair like you cut straight hair… apparently.
But there are a few hairdressers out there with plenty of experience. It’s just knowing where they are. I’ve been going to Nikki at Schwing for a few months and he’s pretty darn good. A mellow guy who just gets on with his job and gives good advice.
He lived in Beverly Hills for about 20 years till he decided to move back to his native Bangkok and set up his own salon. He certainly knows how to deal with my unruly hair and today I actually left the hairdresser looking like I had beautiful, straight Thai hair. Which seems to be a bit of a contradiction… hm.
Still, I highly recommend him fellow farang ladies with the wavy hair going on. Here’s his card.
