There are lots of hairdressers in Stockholm and it can be tricky to find the right one. Your hair is quite literally your crowning glory and it's important to ensure it's in safe hands. This guide will help you find a hairdresser in Stockholm that feels right for you. We recommend Stockholm's best salons, where skilled hair stylists wield a pair of scissors masterfully. It's easy to see whether the salon's in Kungsholmen, Vasastan or another part of town. Most of the hairdressers we've chosen are fairly exclusive, but if you're after a cheap hairdresser in Stockholm, we also have a specific guide to good-value salons. Many of the salons we've mentioned also have junior stylists and trainees who can often cost around half the price of a more senior stylist. We've even managed to include a few salons that are good at cutting children's hair too.
