Dominican beauty salons

Salon_2Dominican women of all economic status like to look good.

Dominican salons keep up to date on the new hair cuts and deep conditioning treatments. Dominican stylists are known the world over for their mastery of the art of blow drying, working from root to tips and painstakingly drying hair in sections, twirling the brush at the ends to give hair tons of body, and getting the shine out of hair. A Dominican salon is probably the only place where if you are in a rush, you can get two stylists to go at your hair.

The beauty salon experience is just as much about looking good as getting a psychological uplift. It is a time women dedicate to themselves. Everyone seems to be on a first-name basis, and stylists know how to keep a conversation going.

To immerse yourself into local culture, visit a salon in Santo Domingo. The weekly visit to the neighborhood salon is part of Dominican female culture. Little girls start going to the salon from 4 years old or even earlier. It’s a mom and daughter bonding routine.
