Buying a hair straightener/flat iron in HCMC?

Just curious of where I can buy a hair straightener or flat iron in HCMC. My hair is crazy these days. Thanks in advance.

Try Diamond Plaza in district 1. We bought swimming goggles for our daughter and they should carry that as well.

Which country are you from and what is your national electric supply?

Vietnam operates on a 220/240 volt 50 Hz system so this matches many other countries.

However, the VN plug may require you to use an adapter for the life of the appliance once you get home and start using it.

Best regards. Ian

I have one at home in America. I just need one here in Vietnam since I will be here for over a year. Just curious about good electronic or beauty supply stores that might carry them.

Thanks!

Ask the girls at your hotel reception. They are a wealth of knowledge in all things regarding beauty care. (My wife got heaps of shopping bargains with their info:-)

I wouldn't have thought a hair straightener would be something there would be a big market for in Viet Nam.

Try the Thương Xá Tax building, ground floor (opp Rex Hotel), cheaper than Diamond Plaza. But they are on sale everywhere.

YorkFoodie There might not be many with frizzie hair but if there is one thing Vietnamese women like and that is dead straight hair after a shower. Speeds up the drying process!
