When it comes to hair salons, Shanghai has no shortage. But finding one with high quality service, competitive pricing and experienced staff – especially those that have worked with a variety of hair types – is not so easy to come by.
Enter I-Ben (伊本造型), a beloved, all-purpose beauty salon covering haircuts, highlights and hair dye for both men and women, plus massages, nails, eyelashes and other beauty services.
I-Ben opened six years ago and currently has 17 stylists speaking a variety of languages – English, Japanese, Chinese, etc.
While the salon focuses primarily on hair, many beauty services are on offer at this one-stop salon, with the crux of it all being a strong emphasis on service quality.
Using only the highest quality professional hair products, most of which are imported from Japan, Korea, France and the US, I-Ben ensures that all of its customers receive the best in hair and beauty care.
Prices vary by stylist, but haircuts come in around RMB380, color treatment goes for RMB900 and Keratin hair treatment is RMB2,600.
One of the leading stylists, Tina, has more than 15 years of experience working with western hair styles, and joined the I-Ben team nearly four years ago. Tina speaks flawless English, and can offer advice and make hair suggestions to suit your hair’s needs.
