World-class cuts, boho balayage and blow drys with a Cosmo cocktail - you name it, Bali's best hair salons have it.
Got your tresses in a twist and looking for the best hair salons in Bali? You’ve come to the right place. With Bali’s high humidity and daily helmet hair (not to mention the damage from too much sun, sand and sea), #islandlife can play havoc with your locks.
Luckily, there are oodles of great hair salons and spas in Bali with all sorts of hair treatments (cream baths all the way, we say!) to sort out that salt-tangled bird’s nest. So go on, get a fresh cut, grab yourself some blonde highlights and finish it off with a blissful head massage… Because you’re worth it!
