I have lived here for 35 years and I'm still looking, i have never come out of any hairdressers here with exactly what I wanted plus two months of hot humid weather really doesn't help. Maybe a wig is the answer !!!

Hello Ladies! All your messages and good comments prompted me to make an appointment - which I did with Kate. I took the train from Cannes this morning and , to my surprise on arrival at the salon, was told that she was ill today.....of course, disappointment for me! However, her husband Arno cut my hair and did a decent job, and was very pleasant indeed but I must admit that my mind was set on Kate. Surely, there must be a decent hairdresser in Cannes! If you know of one, please reply! Many thanks!

Michaelh - does Jonathon Forbes still work in the area? I tried calling the number, but no response so I am not sure whether I should continue trying. Thanks in advance!

Hi everyone,

Thank you all for recommending Kate & Arno at Identity. I finally went today after months of following this thread, and can now say that I have finally found my salon in Nice! Thank you all, and especially thank you Kate if you have a chance to finally read this thread. I love my cut, colour (first time having hair coloured, and definitely satisfied), and style. See you again soon.

I'm so glad to find this discussion thread. I've been searching out salons for 2 months! As a newcomer, can anyone tell me what tipping etiquette is for salons in France? Is it customary, and if so, at what percentage?

For anyone near the Italian border there's a great hairdresser in Ventimiglia - Manuele. They speak French and Italian and do fantastic colour and great cuts. I went to T&G for years and was looking for something similar around Monaco but to no avail until a friend recommended here - half the price too! They're on 10, V Ruffini Jacopo and the number is 0184351029.

I could not agree more - I used to go to Nicky Clarke in Mayfair so expectations were high & was not disappointed. Real understanding of face shape & hair type, very friendly, great products & for an amazing price - still can't believe its such good value - 48 euros for proper & leisurely wash cut & expert blow dry. Brilliant!

my wife uses Jonathon Forbes for all colour and cut and everything, she has told me to write here that he is fantastic as he listens to what you want then tells you what will suit you.
He comes to the house.
his number is 06 14 43 31 38

Apparently he does a lot of the super super rich and if hes good enough for them he's good enough for my wife (again I have been told to write that! )

I second that. He has cut my friends hair several times and she looked great and was totally thrilled. I tend to choose Kate as I like to discuss with her in English different colours and styles etc. Arno also speaks good English, but I am just used to Kate! Enjoy your time there. I was there Saturday.
