I will update this post with a nice price listing soon, for now please read up on my general post on the subject HERE about the pinch braid method they do here. If you get extensions in Korea (good or bad), had quotes, or are aware of places worth checking out PLEASE let me know! I am trying to put together a nice list eventually and am unable to visit and try every single place I find XD could use some help lol If you try a place on this list let me know!
♥ ♥ ♥
Please keep in mind, I am usually calling for quotes on a full head (80-100 grams average amount) of hair 18″-22″ in length. If you need a smaller amount or shorter length prices can be about 50,000 to 100,000 cheaper at some locations. I am also listing places that offer a proper range of blonde and other colors, if you just need black or darker browns you can easily go to any shop in Edae and find someone to do your hair!
Price Range: (double check) 200,000-300,000 won for full head
Hair/Colors offered: Blacks and Browns, some with slight wave. 18″ max, most in stock is quite short
English Speaking Staff: Unknown
Pros: Lower prices, apparently popular.
Cons: Limited hair selection. Braids came out rather thick in my thin hair and only one stylist worked on me so it took forever
Comments: If you bring your own hair they will attach it for 100,000. Avoid getting dye here though, they turned my hair green.
Price Range: 500,000-100,000 won
English Speaking Staff: Yes
Price Range: 350,000-500,000 half-full
English Speaking Staff: Owner speaks some English.
Comments: This location offer keratin bonded extensions, ring, and pinch braid “twist”style.
Price Range: 100,000-150,000
Hair/Colors offered: seems to be a good range including blonde
English Speaking Staff: unknown
Pros: lots of color choices and low price
Comments: This place only does the keratin bonding method
Price Range: Starts at 200,000 won
Hair/Colors offered: apparently any texture or color, but they have to order them.
English Speaking Staff: Yes
Pros: Deals with mainly foreign clients. Experience with African hair.
Cons: just based on phone call, but they only had 14″ in stock so you have to have hair ordered.
Comments: So “Family Hair” in Itaewon was suggested to me by a reader, but I found the two people I spoke to really rude on the phone!!! The phonecall was so meh that it put me off from ever visiting (you know those types of calls) BUT many people do seem to like them online. Maybe they are just bitchy on the phone because my wallet is not open in front of them? Whatever.
They are only worth mentioning because if you have Black/African hair and need work done~ braids, dreads, weave, relaxed, etc this is apparently THE place to go in Korea. You can see a facebook page filled with her happy clients HERE and everyone does look amazing. If anyone braves a visit for extenshions (or anything!) and has info to share or is going sometime and would not mind me tagging along to take photos for a proper review, please do drop me a line. If this is a place that will actually do African hair properly here it deserves to be blogged about more as a resource for sure~ regardless of the phone bitchiness.
