What I like about Park Jun's:
1. The stylist, a Korean girl, knows how to give my hair shape and volume. Yes, I now agree that Koreans are great hairstylis. I've been putting off going to a Korean salon because I'm scared I'll get a rough-layered cut. Notice the soft layers the stylist gave me.
2. The stylist did not nag me about getting a treatment. In fact, she just said, you have beautiful natural hair, you just blow dry it. I get annoyed with the other 3 salons I go to because they always offer me the latest treatment available when the stylist knows that relatively, I got healthy hair. I just had it permed once, other than that, never chemically-treated.
3. The salon has that industrial feel similar to a French-run salon that I frequent the past year. Nothing fancy, just the way I like it. Shampoo and conditioner, I believe, is with Tigi products. Most salons prefer Tigi products because of its long-lasting, sweet smell. Water, tea, coffee and magazines are available and offered.
4. Price range is similar to foreigner-run salons. I checked the rest of the menu and hair treatment is on the cheaper side. I find that surprising. Student and children below 12 get discount.
5. All 5 stylists I saw at the place are Koreans.
The haircut made me feel better.
It always does, as long as the stylist does it right.

P.S. I'll tell you about the French-run salon I go to when I next visit the place. I also like the way they handle my hair.
