Where to Get a Haircut in VicenzaPosted: 01/07/2013
Every time you move, one of the challenges is finding someone to cut your hair. That challenge is even bigger when you move to another country. Where is the best place to go to get your hair cut in Vicenza? Just like any other place, it depends on your personal preferences. However, there are several options.
There are two places to get your hair cut on post. First, there is a beauty salon in the PX. The beauty shop is open when the PX is open, even Sundays and holidays. The phone number is 0444-71-5619. I think sometimes you can walk-in, but they prefer you have an appointment. They provide the standard services. If you don’t want to worry about scheduling an appointment off post and want to speak English, the salon is an easy option.
I have heard mixed reviews about the beauty salon, but lately people seem to be pretty happy with hair cuts and color. (They have changed management a couple of times since I have been here.)
Not interested in the beauty salon in the PX? You can still get a haircut on post. The Family Hair Care Center or spa is located across the street from the post office. It provides more of a full-service salon experience. It has hours similar to the beauty salon, but provides a few more services, such as massages. The contact number for the Family Hair Care Center is 0444-71-6097.
The Family Hair Care Center seems to be the more popular option if you want to have your hair styled on post instead of venturing out in the community.
The place that most people mention as a place to go for a hair stylist off post is Salon Lisa. Lisa formerly worked at the salon on post for many years. She speaks English and is located near Villagio. I get my hair cut here and Lisa is a very nice lady. Her shop is easy to get to and has plenty of parking, so it is convenient. She does a good job both on hair cuts and color. Her prices are reasonable, as well. She has another stylist working with her, so it is a pretty small shop.
Salon Lisa’s address is Via Zamenhof, 825, Vicenza. Her number is 0444239127. She is open 10-? Tuesday through Saturday. Lisa is very flexible and I have seen her come in for established clients will come in when she is scheduled closed.
Another place many Americans get their hair done, as well as other salon services, is Beauty Secrets Salon. I have not been here, but this salon is popular with many people. They do reasonably priced waxing and facials. They cut men’s hair, which is great for those guys who aren’t military and want more of a style than the barber
Beauty Secrets is just outside the pedestrian gate on Viale della Pace, 232. (It is across the street past the traffic circle.) The phone number there is 0444305584.
There are a bunch of other places, but these are the most common answers I have gotten when talking to ladies about hair!
