Entrusting your locks to a total stranger can be a scary prospect, especially when the stranger in question doesn't speak your language. However, this doesn't mean you should suffer split ends and overgrown roots for the sake of avoiding the hairdresser. The results are often as good, if not better, than those you'd get from salons back home, for a much better price too. Basic salons offer cuts as cheap as RMB10 and equally inexpensive hair washing, combined with a head massage. However, these places usually don't have much experience with Western hair. If you're not confident in your ability to effectively communicate and procure your desired’do, it may be worth forking out extra for one of the pricier salons.
