The Sanlitun outlet of this trendy British chain features their signature black-and-white décor, knowledgeable (generally somewhat English-speaking) staff, and a never-ending stream of well-heeled hip clientele. Cuts run the gamut from basic to haute coiffure, depending on which grade of stylish you select. This is a favorite of many Beijing expats.

WHY WE LIKE IT
It’s a reliable spot for fashionable cuts or an easy blow dry. They’re well versed in popular American and European looks.
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
For an international salon, the English level isn’t as good as you may hope. If you are planning on getting a cut, this communication barrier may be stressful. But for a blow dry, there is enough English to get by, and you will get what you came for.
GOOD TO KNOW
Definitely make your wishes known–if you give the stylist free reign, they will take it, and you will end up with a very “avant-garde” look. If you’re looking to save some dough, check out their training academy (in the Sunshine 100 building on Guang Hua Rd.), where you can often score free or cheap cuts…though beware that results may vary.
