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!
Best hair salons in Bali: EDITOR’S PICKS
1. Piccolina – best for an all-day, wine-fuelled salon experience
Three of our fave things? Stylish interiors, exceptional wines, and delish bites too. Who knew that you could find all of this – and so much more – inside a world-class hair salon?! Well, we found out the moment we stepped foot inside Piccolina: Uluwatu’s hair salon, bottle shop and community hangout combo where you can get a snip from a team of international hairdressers while sipping on a chilled glass of Sauvignon. By day, pop in post-surf for a frothy latte, a fresh cut and a chunky toasted sandwich, or swing by at sunset for multiple bottles of natural wines and a beach-chic balayage before a night on the Uluwatu clifftops. Fusing the friendly vibes of a neighbourhood café with the buzz of a hip wine bar, we couldn’t think of a better spot to style, cut or colour our locks…
