It’s not easy to find a hair salon that would suit us personally. Depending on how good or bad your experience is, a haircut can make or break your week. What more in a foreign country.

Rather than risk a botched haircut or damaging hair treatment by looking for a place yourself, Beautiful You has combed through Islamabad and rounded up the best salons in the city with good services, including cuts, styling, and colouring and, at some, spa treatments and nail care.
