Cutting-Edge Style: Exploring Copenhagen's Most Stylish Hair Salons February 16, 2023 20:22
Recently Salon Owner Jennifer Morgan was invited to attend the Global Masters Essential Looks Training in Germany. While she was there she took the opportunity to visit one of the fashion capitals of the world, Copenhagen, to see what the hair scene is like in this stylish city...with 4 days to look around, here is what she saw.
"Danish women seem to me to be some of the most beautiful and effortlessly fashionable I have ever seen (more so than some of the more 'obvious' fashion capitals). Maybe it was because we arrived a week after Copenhagen Fashion Week, but even in the depth of winter the style was so obvious...which made wandering the streets so much fun...and made getting into the salons even more intriguing
Copenhagen is a city that is known for its innovative and cutting-edge fashion, design, and architecture. It is no surprise, then, that the city is also home to a number of stylish and trend-setting hair salons. These salons blend Scandinavian minimalism with a focus on quality and luxury to offer a unique and personalised approach to hair care.
With four wintery days we walked for over 100km through the various neighbourhoods and stopped in when the salon looked interesting. Copenhagen hairdressers were super welcoming when I explained that I had come from New Zealand and invited us in with open arms
Copenhagen's hair salons are distinctive for their dedication to sustainability and eco-friendliness. Many salons prioritize the use of organic and natural hair products, as well as energy-efficient equipment and lighting. Some salons even use recycled materials in their décor, giving them a distinctive and eco-friendly atmosphere.
Another defining characteristic of Copenhagen's hair salons is their commitment to personalised service. There don't seem to be many chain salons, but the number of small boutique salon is quite crazy...It feels like every second shop is a hairdresser. Talking to the locals they say the smaller salon means they take the time to get to know each client and their individual hair needs.
As a result, clients can expect a personalised and tailored experience that considers their hair type, texture, and personal style.
Copenhagen's hair salons also prioritize ongoing education and professional development. Many stylists attend regular training courses and workshops to stay up-to-date on the latest trends and techniques. This means that clients can expect cutting-edge hairstyles and treatments that are both fashionable and functional.
One standout example of a stylish hair salon in Copenhagen is Reboot Organic in the Christianshavn neighbourhood.

Reboot also prides itself on using only the highest quality hair products, including cruelty-free and vegan options.

Another noteworthy salon in Copenhagen is Stender, located in the heart of the city. This salon has a classic, luxurious atmosphere, with plush seating and elegant décor. Stender specializes in natural and organic hair care products, and offers a range of services including cuts, colors, and styling.
