    I will be moving to Chengdu in August for at least a year. I understand that most hairdressers in China are not used to working with western hair, and I have not been able to locate online a hair salon that caters to western women who need their hair bleached and coloured. Are there any that you could recommend?

    I’d be surprised if you can find a hair salon that caters to foreign women specifically, but any reasonably high-end salon should have everything you need. If you have difficulty with communication you might want to bring a Chinese friend with you but otherwise I don’t think you’ll have too much difficulty.

    There are more and more high-end salons in Chengdu these days also, so you’ll have many to choose from.

    I heard there was a ‘Toni and Guy’ in Chengdu?

    The a:Jie chain seems to be a good bet. I’ve been going there since I arrived in Chengdu. I believe there is a Toni & Guy recently opened, but there’s also a completely bogus ‘Toni & Guy’ that I made the fruitless journey to (I forget where exactly it was now, it showed up on a google search!), so research that.

    I’m learning that stylists here appear to cut cautiously, relying on product for ‘styling’, so make sure you don’t get left with a mass of frizz atop your bonce!!

    If you find somewhere decent, share it.

    Tongzilin is a good place, there are many salons. I like 世纪精剪.

    Just in Hairdressing schools, I know East and West have different hair trends. But here, the distinction is between the materials used.

    What is Tony & Guy? Is that a well known chain somewhere?

    Toni & Guy is a famous worldwide chain of salons originating from the UK. It’s also an international hair care brand, owned by Unilever in the US.

    Google “toni & guy chengdu” for the correct store location.

    I’m pretty sure it’s in the Louis Vuitton building close to Tianfu Square. Standard cut (for a guy) is 280 RMB. I think for women it starts around 8 bajillion.

    Thanks for all your help. I feel much more confident now, and will check out all the places you suggested before I make a decision. 8 bajillion? Sounds like home!

    I accidently ran into the Tony&Guy hair salon recently. It’s indeed in the Yanlord Landmark (LV building, Renmin Nan Lu near Tianfu Sq) like zkoch said. If I remember correctly it was around the 3rd of 4th floor, right in front of u when you get upstairs with the automatic stairway.

    Looked sick nice and probably pretty expensive. If I had any hair I would definately give it a shot though.
