I was searching for a reasonable priced hair salon because I needed a haircut.
Doras Hairdressing Salon came up as one of the top search results. I took a look at their website and it gave me the impression that it was an old-fashioned, traditional hair salon which had stood the test of time. (It was there before I was even born so it must be nice, right? Otherwise it would went out of business a long time ago.)
But the truth is I couldn’t be more wrong.
I paid a visit on a sunny Friday afternoon, as I walked in, there was only an old lady sitting on the couch in the salon. She didn’t know a single word of English but luckily a lady(who’s much younger) arrived and helped me translate my words to the old lady(which was the main hairdresser in the salon I assume). And then the old lady took me to wash my hair. She didn’t use the conditioner though. And the hair towel was so loosely wrapped around my head, the water started to flow down my neck. I didn’t even have the time to adjust the hair towel because the old lady was apparently not aware of the fact that my hair was almost still totally wet. She guided me to the hairdressing room right away and after a brief conversation with that young lady, she started to cut my hair. The first hair scissor she used was almost identical to the scissor I used for paper cutting and other general office purposes! She turned the chair around, so she could face me directly and cut my front hair more easily. (I’ve never seen any other hairdressers doing so, mostly they just split the hair into two equal halves and start cutting it). As the water in my hair continued flowing down, the top of my dress was getting wet too. The whole process was rather quickly though because the old lady didn’t even bother to measure the length of my hair and do any necessary adjustments. She just roughly cut some hair off and that was it. And then she blow-dried my hair (stopped when my hair was still moist). I went home with 15 euros less and a head of messy and untidy hair.
Never again. Would rather spend a little more at a bigger and modern hair salon (where there is actual “service” and qualified and professional hairdressers) to get my hair done.
