Best hairdresser in Paris…

perfect shade of blonde!

In November I made my biggest mistake in Paris, I went to a hairdresser to re-make my highlights and the result was a complete disaster!!! Finding a hairdresser that leaves your hair with a perfect result is hard to find. I had one favourite hairdresser in Stockholm that I went to for years but now she’s on maternity leave. Anyway, on a cold evening in December when I was looking for Redkens Platinum Conditioner I bumped into the hairdresser Christophe Monteiro at Coiff1rst. I showed him my hair that was a disaster and after a while of talking I realized that this guy knew excactly how to work with highlighting and he also told me he has a lot of Swedish people among his clients. I took his visitcard and today I went to his recently opened private saloon. He made new highlights in my hair and also managed to remove ALL the yellow and red parts from my latest hair-disaster. Look at the result on the photo above, I was completely amazed and extremely happy :-) I guess I’ve found myself the best hairdresser in Paris! It was a pleasure to be treated in his saloon, he’s only working with Redken’s professional products, the chair was giving me a massage while I was having a hair-treatment and I also increased my French vocabulary since he only spoke in French. If you’re looking for a hairdresser that is professional and especialy if you’re looking for someone that can handle highlighting with the PERFECT result, I truly recommend Christophe Monteiro ;-)

You’ll find him at:

Coiff1rst Salon Privé, 65, rue Charlot – call him first for a rendez-vous since it’s a private saloon at : 01 44 61 17 91

    Så skönt att du äntligen fick ordning på håret! Tråkigt att behöva betala sådana dyra pengar för något som i slutändan inte känns helt bra. Det är verkligen svårt att hitta en frisör man trivs med. Jag panikklippte mig nu innan nyår och det blev helt ok. Dock bör jag till nästa gång försöka hitta någon som känns helt perfekt! Det känns alltid som det är en chansning när man provar någonting nytt…

    Jag har haft väldigt svårt att lita på frisörer efter ett missförstånd vid ett frisör besök och mitt hår blev plötslogt väldigt kort. Nu har jag dock hittat en jag litar på så nu slipper syster klippa mitt hår. =)

    Härligt! Jag tycker sant är superviktigt. Men far jag fraga vad du betalade? Jag har betalt upp till 130 Euro flera ganger (highlights, klippning, inpackning etc). Men det blir väldigt dyrt om man gar var 6:e – 8:e vecka som jag gör…

    Provar gärna din frisör nästa gang jag är i Paris (fast det verkar dröja..).

    Kram kram!

    […] My new hairdresser is Michelle from London and I think she did a great job. Usually I go to my favourite hairdresser in Paris, Christophe Monteiro, but now when I will be in Sweden for a while Michelle is the perfect […]
