VisitBerlin: Notaufnahme Hairstylist/Barbershop Berlin

0 Comments 14 September 2015

Are you looking for a skilled team to get a fresh new haircut?

I was looking for a hair salon who took customers by appointment and found “Notaufnahme Berlin” on Kastanienallee (Prenzlauer Berg):

First of all, German hairstylists find my Asian hair (thick, healthy, straight) somewhat “difficult”, and over the years, I have tried out many, many hair salons in Berlin.

I had some very bad experiences in Berlin at the “pricier” salons like Toni&Guy (Friedrichstraße- up to day one of the most overrated places I have visited EVER), Hoshi Coupé (Hackescher Markt- the stylist did not speak any German or English and gave me the most horrible haircut ever), Aveda Lifestyle Salon & Spa (Ku’damm- the female stylist was pushing her boobs over the face of my partner while cutting, totally unprofessional), Shift Friseure (Hackescher Markt & Ku’damm- made me pay to be a hair model, the cut was NOT clean),  and the not-so-pricey Haarstation (Rosenthaler Platz- the guy was a self-absorbed narcissist who very obviously did not want to be a hairdresser), Unicut (Weinmeisterstraße- they closed, or moved. Whatever, was BAD) … Not to mention all those “emergency” cuts I had at different big “malls” and “shopping centers”…!

After researching a hair salon nearby to rescue my outgrowing pixie cut, I read the review Chopstick (one of the label heads of one of my fav music labels in Berlin, SUOL, had written: “tip top laden! (10 July 2014)“. Since I trust Thien’s taste and value his opinion, I gave it a try.

Review:

I called spontaneously and got an appointment, arrived there a bit early, discussed what I wanted with Kathi, my hairdresser, and got out with a clean cut, exactly the way I wanted 20 minutes later.

The shop: Clean, enough space, good music welcoming you.

The team: Friendly, but neither intrusive/pushy or Berlin-style “pissed” when you arrive. They don’t urge you to buy unnecessary products, but give you recommendations on what products to use if you ask for advice.

I personally hate getting too personal and chatty at hair salons if all I want is just a neat haircut. I left the salon happy and refreshed.

Five out of five stars.
