Chan is The Man!!!
Chan at Modry Slon was recommended to me by a friend when i mentioned I wanted a slightly atypical hair color treatment. I was there just 2 days ago and I am THRILLED with my new hair color and though I didn't need a cut, he trimmed my fringe as well. This may be the best color job I have ever had--and believe me, I have had a lot--mostly in the US.
But not only is he good at what he does and communicates in English, he does it quicker than most other salons but without making you feel rushed, so you are not sitting around for hours and hours. His modest, attentive and caring manner comes through in every action. I felt completely at ease and he was always taking care that I was comfortable with everything I could possibly want within reach: my purse, phone, magazines and delicious peppermint tea with bisquits!
His prices are quite reasonable on par with most Czech salons I have visited which is to say much less expensive than the ex-pat salons I have visited and which many of my friends are regulars of. Twice I have been to these "highly rated," over-priced hairdressers and would have given them average ratings. I will tell you that if you prefer a fancy environment in a hair salon, don't expect it here. It has no importance to me whatsoever--just a heads up in case that is what you go for. I rather like the non-pretentious atmosphere at Modry Slon.
Anyway I never write reviews, but this time I just had to. I highly recommend Chan and I will definitely be returning as a regular from now on!
