Located in Bonnevoie, Bubbles Hairdresser has a view of a quickly changing neighbourhood within striking distance of the city, yet with a Brooklyn vibe.
The team at Bubbles aim to keep the salon feeling laid back and to make it feel like the antithesis of snobby, frou frou Luxembourg.
They’ve definitely succeeded and the salon exudes fun but also sophistication. The space is contemporary and warm, the stylists are inviting and maybe it’s just me but when a customer is offered orange juice, coffee or crémant, you might secretly wish your hair appointment will turn into a day long affair.
Rosario has a presence not unlike Mr Miyagihe if he were French and Sicilian..and significantly taller…and with way better hair.
Watching this stylist extraordinaire work is like a performance. Did I mention his own coiffure? It’s fierce. You feel you are with the karate kid master of hair as he works magic into your mains and he’s backed by a team of gifted, yet down to earth stylists. The products used are ammonia-free and you don’t walk out smelling like a chemistry lab, however, you don’t have to wait for an interminable amount of time with your head in a sink while it naturally ‘lightens.’
You are left with impeccable colour and a face-flattering cut that has brilliant texture and lasting long after the blow out has worn off. Their secret? A BB Creme deep conditioning is the key to reviving damaged hair. Be honest, does your hair thrive in this landlocked country? Do you need some damage control for your hair situation? Rosario works in this sensational creme and he is pretty much putting your hair in an ambulance and sending it off to the hospital for help. Never heard of it? I hadn’t either- it is a multifunctional hair treatment which fills, smooths, moisturises and protects you against heat styling appliances and colour fading. It’s made with all the good oils: coconut, argon and olive so you can’t go wrong. You are left with radiant hair. Trust me on this one.
The thing that sets Bubbles apart is that they exude a warm vibe while keeping your hair on point.
It’s no nonsense approach means they will figure a way to fit you in and you don’t have to wait three months for an appointment (as is often the case in Luxembourg hair salons). They will fix whatever situation you bring to them and you won’t have to spend 7 hours of your life watching paint dry…although if the drinks are flowing… As a bonus, Bubbles is English friendly but also can communicate in Luxembourgish, French, German, Italian and Portuguese so you don’t have to study up on your embarrassing french before darkening their door.
