The guide to Uppsala's best hairdressers
Updated 24 Sep 2020
A great hairdresser should treat your hair the way you want, but also be able to see the potential in your crowning glory and give you tips and advice on how to update and maintain your style. Craftsmanship and skill is at least as important as an awareness of trends and fashions. Getting on with your hairstylist on a personal level is also a major plus. But finding a hairdresser you trust and feel comfortable with isn't always easy, particularly if you're just passing through town. To help you in your search we've put together a guide to our favourite hairdressers in Uppsala.
