Hair Salon/Stylist in Geoje

Posted: 31 August 2011 - 06:44 PM
Would like to know if there is any hair shop with stylist speaking english.
New to Jenny's
Posted: 09 September 2011 - 08:39 PM
Tried Jenny's for the first time last week, she might speak good English but like you said she certainly is a very erratic person. In the midst of a hair cut she started playing the piano....... Very odd,!,,,,, the pedicure was no good too...,!!!! Certainly not going there again.

That was my experience too! I'm not even sure she properly understands english as after askign her for a trim she went right ahead and made my hair very short. Eva, above Caramello organic cafe in Jangpyonh near Samsung Village is a much better experience and haircut (for men and women)!!

there is another good hairstylist in Okpo.
Stylique W (opposite of spoon/ Beverly hills 3)

They speak just a little bit english, but the cut and highlights are great!!!!

I also had a bad experience with Jenny. We discussed the color and cut that I wanted, and then she did what she wanted instead of what I asked for. The color was two shades darker than I asked for, and the cut was much shorter. I definitely won't be going back!

Jenny, I agree with your comments and if anyone has a problrm with your establishment, then it would be better if they are directed to you and not via these message boards.
I am sure that you will address all criticism, both positive and negative, in a totally proffesional manner.

Jenny is good and I have nothing to complain.
Maybe the complainers did not explain properly what they want or there was some miscommunication due to the language difference?
Keep up the good work Jenny!

If you stand back to the GS supermarket main entrance there is a small street on the left side. Go through it until you reach the place, about 100 or 200 meters. The place has print of INOA LOREAL on the window. The owner is a very sweet girl who speaks very good english and she looks to be very professional. I highly recommend her!

Well, this is an open forum for expressing personal opinions, good and bad experiences have the right to be heard, and that is the reason of the question in first place.
It is not a matter of criticizing someone or someplace in particular, but I think it is always good to know about the personal experiences of all expats here in Geoje.
I think that sometimes some Koreans, no matter if they speak good english, there is a problem of coMmunication and they don't understand quite well what the expats want from a specific service.
And it is also a matter of personal appreciation for some services, and not always we have the same opinion. For example, I can tell you that for me Jenny's saloon is a good haircut saloon, but a friend of mine had a very bad experience with Jenny.
So it is a matter of personal opinions and this is an open forum for all the expats we are living here in Geoje, and it is not good to hide or not to express bad opinions, because sometime it is very hard to deal with some korean services also.
So the main idea is to help us each other between expats, with all ideas and opinions, not only Korean opinions but mainly expats thoughts and experiences since this the GEOJE FOREIGN RESIDENT ASSOCIATION FORUM.
And there are a lot of good places where to have an excellent haircut in Geoje.

I just went to Jenny's Salon and it was great! I got highlights and a trim, and the color came out awesome. Jenny and her assistant got me in and out in less than an hour AND I got a sweet head massage while she was shampooing. The price was good too. I paid a total of 70,000 won. I'd definitely go back and recommend this salon to others.

Eva from Jongpyong is an excellent stylist, her salon is called Raonjena it is above The Caramella coffee shop near Samsung Gate. Eva and Choi both stylists speak really good english and the salon has a lovely atmosphere, well worth a visit

Hello - I am soon to live in OKPO and would like to know if there are any beauty salons that do waxing to remove body hair? I ask because I'm currently in Malaysia and its proven to be difficult to find...
Posted: 08 October 2012 - 02:32 AM
Hi Lauren, we left kuala lumpur several days ago. There are plenty waxing place there. You'd like to have it done there rather than in geoje as, even if there's such service hete, you will likely to pay 5x higher :)

Speaking English Hair Salon in OKPO. foreigners hair salon
Posted: 13 February 2013 - 05:34 AM
I've had nothing but greatness at Jenny's! Super nice and professional. Has always made great suggestions and listened to what I wanted. Has also fixed some friends' hair messups from other salons. Definitely recommend!!!

Hello everybody,

I also looked for a haircut in Okpo and find Jenny's via internet. I went there on Friday afternoon but unfortunately it was closed. With notice at the window "open by appointment". :-/
So I found here the hint with "Stylique W.".

I'm just back from it and I'm really satisfied. Maybe their english is not so good (but mine also not), but they understand what I want.
Of course a men short haircut isn't as much difficult as a womens maybe, but I'm happy with the result.

So if I have to stay here longer and I need one once again, I will go to "Stylique W." again.

So long,
lovely locks

I can't speak too highly of Eva in Janpyeon, above Caramello. She is open late very night, speaks great English and has a lovely salon.

Try it, you won't regret it!

Eva has just cut my very short hair for the first time and done a great job, Thanks! Lovely lady, very pleasant salon. But the business downstairs has changed, so Raojena Hair is now above 'U+Telecom', just down the street from the Post office.
