You don’t have to travel all the way to France to experience how it feels to sit in a Parisian salon. Just visit Pluit area in North Jakarta, where you can find Andreas Zhu & Beauty Lounge and get ready to be transported to the classic and industrial Parisian era. Behind the salon is celebrity hairstylist Andreas Zhu. He entrusted EJ Werkshop Interiors, an interior consultant from Singapore, to realize the concept.

Different from other salons, this place offers thick whimsical elements, but still harmonious with chic and graceful nuances. Since entering the salon, the feel of modern classics is immediately felt thanks to a vintage Parisian-style sofa. A stack of trunk luggage that is turned into a large table and mirror is also one of the main attractions of Andreas Zhu Salon.

The salon owned by a famous makeup artist has loyal clientele includes Indonesian superstars like Dian Sastro, Ivan Gunawan, to Agnes Monica. Andreas Zhu Salon is most famous for haircutting and colouring, especially when it comes to balayage hair (hair coloring technique that creates color lines as the hair is bright above the basic hair color). Zhu is also known as a hairstylist who loves to experiment with colors. He claimed that his work was still affected by the vintage makeup styles of Grace Kelly and Dita von Teese.

If you want your locks to be cut by Andreas Zhu, be prepared to make an appointment long before your visit, around a month or even more. But guaranteed, your long wait will pay off with the beautiful hair you get.
