Looking for a good hair salon can be a tough job in a foreign country. When you’re away for work and need to glam up for an office event or experiencing a hair emergency, the task of looking for one can be even more daunting.

Luckily for us, the Honeycombers Jakarta team has done the job of scouring the city for the best hair stylists and hairdressers the Indonesian capital has to offer for.

So whether you need a quick cut, wash and blow or a big hair transformation, check out one of these spots:

1. Blow+Bar

Their principal is that a single fabulous haircut can be a complete life changer, a practice that is apparent through the knowledgeable and expert hands of their styles. Your session starts off with a proper consultation to make sure you get the best cut for your face shape. Bonus treatment: you might want to add a booking for one of their permanent blowouts that will have you storing those curling irons at the back of your beauty cabinet for a long, long time.

This industrial nook hidden above the uber trendy eatery Pao Pao is, at first glance, a little hipster heaven. But Ryoji Sakate Hair Lounge is a luxury Japanese hair salon that has been receiving high praise amongst Jakarta’s beauty-obsessed pack. Ryoji Sakate himself – a top stylist with over 10 years of experience in Tokyo, New York, and London – works the studio to provide consultations before he crafts a hairstyle that truly fits you. No wonder this hair lounge has garnered a cult following since its opening.
