if you find one let ME know, pleeeaase. i did get my hair straightened here for a pretty penny, but was satisfied:

Angelica's Beauty Center. They are REAL Brazilians (not the Gisela Bündchen type) and would supposedly know what they're doing. i have super curly hair, but i would never classify my cut as an afro. foxy brown i am not people! sadly, I still go to my ghanaen (sp?)hairdresser in stuttgart. fair prices, a bit chaotic, but she knows what she's doing.

 

incidentally, i went to my collegues "trendy" hairdresser last week and walked out with an 80's pat benatar cut! i told him i would probably get my hair straightened again in 4 weeks and he actually cut off 1.5". for someone with such curly hair that was nealry all my hair :blink: . admittedly, i like the layers, now that I've washed it and put in my own hair products, but i wsa a bit shell-shocked as i walked out.

UPDATE! UPDATE! For those with curly or afro hair: I happened to be looking at the advert section of Prinz the other day and happened upon this:

 

Barbara Holmes Haarkunst

Augustenstr. 58

Tel. 089.598 135 or 089.997.461.54

 

She does relaxers (hallelujah!), hair extensions, hair pieces, cuts, curly perms, deep-conditioners etc. So I go by and am greeted by a pleasant younger-than-she-looks black woman with tidy braids curled up in a bun and a bright perly-white smile.

 

I got my hair relaxed today and am super satisfied. Very professional, clean and cozy studio. Cost me EUR85 (cause I do not style it, just put some junk in and go out). But I believe she starts at EUR110 which includes styling, cut, etc., but don't quote me!

Does anyone know if any of these places do dreadlock maintenance for non-afro hair? I've gotten really lazy about mine and they're starting to get messy. I've heard a lot of horror stories about white people getting dreadlocks in Germany from people who don't understand the different needs of our differently-textured hair. But obviously going to a regular hairdresser wouldn't do me any good.

There is also one on Leopold, north of Müncher Freiheit, near Rheinstrasse/Potsdammerstr.

 

Actually, on second thoughts, I am not sure if they are Afro-American, they could be Caribean or African for all I know.

Afro-look Design does hair cuts for blacks and Europeans alike. Very pleasant guy (Nigerian) and speaks 11 languages! I'm sure he can accommodate your language preference.

 

Afro Look Design

Landsbergerstr 6

Munich

Tel 08997604795

 

And the name of the owner is Azeez. I have had no complaints getting my haircut for the past few years.

I am a black woman who would rather not perm my hair. I have visited Munich several times during the past nine (9) months and I have never found any hairdressers who can take care of my Natural hair which is about 16 inches long.

 

On one of my visits, I had to braid my hair using extensions so that it would last for the duration of my three (3) weeks visit.

 

I will be relocating to Munich very soon and I would really like to find a hairdresser who can deal with my natural hair.

 

Can someone please help me?

Does anyone know where I could get a good haircut for myself and my sons in Munich? We usually find barbers that unevenly cut our hair and cannot give a good trim. I am tired of paying for a terrible cut. I am black. I don't know whether or not that makes a difference.

This place, Talk About Heads, claims to deal with "Afro Hair"- they would probably be worth talking to.

Fallen Angel, thank you for the recommendation. I am in desperate need of a haircut. I will check them out sometime this week.

I’ve been living in Munich for almost 6 years.

As a side note I find it very hard to believe that you've been here 6 years and haven't been able to find a decent barber shop.
