The Salon is a beauty salon run by Jeanette Boszczyk-Lesar - one of Munich's beauty icons. She is located at Stuckstrasse 8 in Munich-Bogenhausen.



Feelgood Salon is located at Zentnerstrasse 17 in Munich-Schwabing. The beautician, Krista, speaks very good English. She does facials, pedicure, manicure and waxing, in a very nice and quiet setting.

Other salons

Aloha Kosmetik has been recommended, but there are no English speakers there. And don't even try to visit the website with anything other than Internet Explorer.

Angelica's Beauty Center in the Nymphenburgerstr. (close to Maillingerstr. U-Bahn U1/7) is a beauty and hair salon run by ladies from Brazil. If you've ever wondered where the afro-haired get their hair done in Munich, well this is one of the places. Offering hair extensions, thermal straightening, streads etc they also have a small beauty section (which isn't terribly plush but is clean). Anyway it is staffed by Brazilians so the service is in broken German, some English, Spanish and Portuguese. Waxing costs... 45€. For whole leg plus free bikini wax. Yes you read that right.

Beauty School: often booked out months in advance. The best bet is apparently to just keep on calling back, hoping that something might free up.

Beautyspy used to have a branch at the Fünf Höfe, which closed. They're redesigning their website, so maybe they'll have a Munich branch again soon. (Current: 22.Jan.2005)

Fanny at Hohenzollernplatz, Tel. 089 3087853. Close to the U2 U-Bahn station Hohenzollernplatz. Very good, and also does blokes.

Kosmetik Norkauer in the Elisenhof (opp. Hauptbahnhof), tel. 593182. They charge 27€ for a full leg (both legs). Their facials are very good and very very cheap, rubbish opening times though.If you want a bikini wax there aren't that many places that do anything other than the very basic (i.e. knickers on) ones though, Cosmo Beauty does: Agnesstr. 16, 80798 München Tel: 2730015.

Hautnah behind Ludwig Beck. I found them to be very friendly, and most of them speak English.
