During my second visit to Beirut, we were invited to a wedding. I was completely new to Beirut and didn’t know what to expect from a Lebanese wedding, so I dressed formally (imagine Sunday church clothes 🙂 but simply, and I did my makeup and hair by myself. I discovered that Lebanese women (and not only women) love to dress up and groom themselves. So any social event or outing is just like seeing all the latest fashion trends live. And I have to say Lebanon has really excellent fashion designers, makeup artists & hairdressers.
Hairdressers are mainly men, which is different from Europe. “Maestro”, who is the salon owner, usually only cuts and styles your hair and then you have an additional 5-10 guys running around you, washing your hair, brushing it, offering you a coffee…
Since I first tried Lebanese hairdressers, I don’t have my hair cut & colored anywhere else. George is my preferred one. He has this feeling that makes him do the cut & styling just perfect. I don’t have to go home and wash my hair again or just wait some weeks for my hair to grow because he just cut too much… No no no, this would never happen with George. If you come to Lebanon and it happens that you have a social event like it happened to me, or if you’re just planning an outing, I encourage you to have this experience.
Brushing for 20000LBP is good enough to start with, cut for the brave.
