Salon Coiffure

Have you ever noticed the number of beauty salons in Paris?

There seems to be one on every corner…and for good reason. On any given Friday or Saturday morning women line up at the salon to have a brushing, meaning a shampoo and a blow dry.
Armed with a round brush and a powerful 2100w blow dryer, French stylists have mastered the art of an exceptionally good blow dry. A single brushing can last up to 4 or 5 days, depending on the weather, the dryness of your scalp, length of your hair, etc.

Brushings cost anywhere from 25 to 35 euros at a franchise salon such as Jean-Claude Biguine or Jacques Dessange, but, they’re well worth it. An additional fee of about 12 euro is charged for conditioner. No appointment is necessary and walk-ins are very welcome.

When I have a special occasion, I jump into the cue and wait my turn.
