  1. Szia Lola! Hu, de jo, hogy elcsiptel 🙂 Kar, hogy pont elottunk koltoztok el. A ferjem amerikai es a nagykovetsegen fog dolgozni 2 evig, most eppen Ausztraliaban vagyunk, gondolom nagy valtozas lesz. Mindent tudni szeretnek 🙂 Nem tudnal megadni egy e-mail cimet, esetleg a Facebook-n fent vagy?

  2. Hi Kia, Thanks for your suggestion, though right now I’m a little worried about what you have written. I have a really short hairstyle, so I need to have it chopped every 5 weeks. Hope I’ll find somebody after all, I’m not a wig fan 🙂 I’ve found your blog on FB in that expat group, hope the admin will add me soon. Thanks again. Have a nice day!

  3. Hi Szuzsanna, welcome to Baku in August. I’m sure you will enjoy it and I’m glad you found my blog to give you an intro! In the 18 months I have been here, I have not dared go to a hairdresser, I always go on my trips back to London. On the Baku Expat Community Facebook Page (an essential Baku survival tool!), the most recommended is Burak at Chic&Chic Salon in Port Baku. There was another good one here, Samanta, but she has left. Here, all the locals have long hair and many expats have bobs. On those two hairstyles you are safe here, they are done well. Not sure about layered styles (as I have) and I do know that colour can be adventurous with a strong tendency towards red. Perhaps bring a wig, just in case? 😉

  4. Thanks for all the useful info! We’ll be moving to Baku in August. Can you recommend a good hairdresser? I have short hair. Thanks, Zsuzsanna

    1. Szia Zsuzsanna! Teljesen veletlenul csiptem el a kommented! 🙂 mi jaratban erre? Mi epp juliusban hagyjuk itt Bakut, szivesen meselek, ha kivancsi vagy! 🙂
