Most people know what they want and don't want when it comes to their hair. The problem is in communicating this to your hairdresser if you don't speak the same language. And as we all know, a great deal of details are involved when it comes to creating that ideal, great looking, personal and unique hairstyle. To make sure you don't get lost in translation the next time you visit a hair salon in Taiwan we have compiled a terminology list. We hope that our terminology list will not only assist you but also make your next trip to the hairdresser more fun, more effective and much less frustrating. The links below feature things like hairstyle catalogs and hair tips.
