I am the kind of woman who always goes for loose hair, a bun or a simple poneytail. Only reason to this: these are the only 3 things I can handle ! Really, I am bad at make up and hairstyle. Luckily, when you live in Laos, finding a beauty salon that can make you a beautiful Lao bun or creative braids is easy !
On a Saturday when I decided I wanted to have something more sophisticated that what I am able to do with my hands, so I tried out a place a friend of mine recommended: Julia Beauty Salon. The salon is located on Thadeua, just after the That Khao traffic light, almost facing the lake and the Sports Club.
Before I entered the salon, I just screenshoted a picture on Instagram and here I am, Ma’am ! In less than 5 seconds, she knows what I want and she started to put hair clips all around my head. 10 minutes later, I am ready to go out with beautiful braids.
As most of the salons in Vientiane, you can also have your make up for any occasion you might join here: wedding, birthday, event… I am not a big fan of what I look like in the mirror once the make up is done, but I have to admit the result is always better on pictures !
Oh. And last point: it’s cheap !
The salon is open every day from around 9AM to approximatively 8PM.
The lady doesn’t really smile but she is nice 🙂
And you, do you like to go ?
