Coiffure Paris

This is probably an unusual question but two Canadian sisters with curly hair want to get our hair cut in Paris. We are staying near Gare de Lyon. We were looking at Coiffure Banse which looks very nice although there is no opportunity for online bookings. I could phone however my French is not very good. We also looked at Toni and Guys. Was just wondering if anyone could make a recommendation for us? Thank you very much.

If I were going to take the plunge of getting a haircut in Paris, I'd think twice about going to Tony and Guy which is an international chain that is, I believe, available in some cities in Canada. For the effort, I'd look for someone who specializes in a cut I like, preferably referred by someone who's "look" I like

Hopefully Paris resident Phread will see this and give you her recommendation.

My (adult) daughter & I both have very long curly hair, and the stylist we have gone to for haircuts in Paris for many years is Sylvaine at Zazen in the Marais (rue roi de Sicile). She was originally recommended to us by other friends who have curly hair and had been going to her for a long time.

As you know, if you have curly hair, it is very difficult to find someone who can properly (dry) cut curly hair....

(as a comparison, in NYC we go to Devachan in Soho)

The Camille Albin chain salons are kniwn to be specialists with curly hair. If you want to splash out, I’m a big fan of Clemence at Marisol, the salon in the Bon Marché. Hercspecialty is cutting dry hair, which is great if you’ve got lots o’ volume.. She’s the only one who has ever been able to give me a just-off-the-beach natural wave blow dry, but can do something more classic, too.

OP, you can't do better than personal recommendations from Paris residents. A way better route. Good luck in choosing one that will suit your needs.

phread, yes, my daughter has also gone to Marisol in Le BonMarché a couple of times and been very happy with the results. They did a very nice cut and blow dry on her long wavy/curly hair, and she needs a professional look which they have given her. I haven’t tried them. I don’t go to stylists as often as she does, and I am in NYC more, but she lives and works in Paris so has her hair cut more often there than in NYC.

As far as best products for curly hair, though, we have never found anything in Paris that works better for us than the Devacurl line. If you’re another “curly girl” and have some suggestions about local French products for curly hair that might be worth trying, I’d be happy to hear recommendations. I used to find good-quality Tahitian monoi/coconut oil in Monoprix, but haven’t seen it lately. (meanwhile, I continue to schlepp a suitcase full of Devacurl stuff from NYC for my daughter in Paris on every visit.)

My GF was thinking the same thing and decided on Stephanie Vanderlip, 154 rue Saint-Honore

(near the Louvre, Tullerie Gardens). She made the appointment over email. Unfortunately I do not know how much it was for a haircut. Ear muffs.
