If you want deluxe, then there’s Il Colpo. Part of the Hong Kong-based ‘luxury salon’, this swanky IFC studio has been styling the hair of Shanghai’s ‘high society’ since opening in 2010. Il Colpo offers the full range of treatments – cutting, colouring, straightening, perms – carried out by stylists who have up to 15 years of experience dealing with all hair types. Basically, your wish is their command, with a little bit of stylistic input of course. But, it ain’t cheap, starting from 380RMB a cut. Alternatively, there’s Il Colpo Bis (LG1, iAPM Mall, 999 Huaihai Zhong Lu). Though the setting isn’t as refined, the cuts are just as thorough and start from a more wallet-friendly 280RMB.
Price Cuts from 380RMB; colouring from 720RMB.
