English-speaking Hairdressers in Lausanne (Updated)
This post was updated and republished on 9 Aug 2013. Originally published on 12 Jan 2011.
My post about hairdresser is one of the hottest posts I have on this blog. I guess I was right that finding a great hairdresser is never easy, especially the ones who speak English here in Lausanne.
I used to go to Sandra at Jean-Louis David in Chauderon, but since she had a baby, she moved to Montreux. After that I’ve been to Nicole (Chez Maxim) who gave me a lovely short haircut. And just before I had my 2nd baby, Nicolas (Avant-Propos) gave me great cut, too. As for now, I go to my neighbor, who has a salon just a few house away from me, but she’s not in Lausanne, so that I don’t list her here
Then a few readers have also sent the names of their hairdressers, so now, here’s a list in no particular order (they all speak French plus the languages on the brackets).
