So you have come to Germany and to Bremen. But now, the question of where you get some things that were so accessible at home, that now aren’t can seem like a mystery. I know for me during my first year, my main questions revolved around beauty… like “where can I get my hair done” ? and where can I get makeup that suits me? But with a bit of looking I realized such places do exist in Bremen.And nearby Hamburg as well if you need an excuse for a good day trip 🙂
If keeping up your hairstyle is important to you but you don’t have any idea where to start , here are suggestions for salons that work with a variety of hair types.
Hair Places (addresses below)
- Kumba afro hair braiding
A really nice young woman runs this salon and she and the salon staff put their best into making you look great. But it’s good to call ahead especially if you are going over the weekend, as it gets really busy.
- Miss Chic the Salon
Another really nice salon that has nice ambiance and a great team. Scheduling ahead of time is a plus and it is really easy to contact them online via email or over the phone , if you have questions or want to schedule an appointment.
- Torsten Dembny
This was recommended to me by a friend. This salon has a large staff so it might be good to ask about who specializes in the style you’re going for ( for example a short cut ). Plus it is super conveniently located in Vegesack by the bus stops.
- Mario Andolfi
A salon located downtown. It has a nice atmosphere and is efficient timewise. Was recommended to me because they cut all types of hair really well and are a good place to go for a trim.
