where can i get dreadlocks in instambul?

hello everyone

i was wondering if you could help me cuz this is like my last resort to finding a solution to my problem

i am going to instambul in less than a month and wanted to ask if any one knows where can i get my hair done in dreadlocks (rastas) there?

My friends told me about some place in Taxim but if anyone could give me a more specific advice I would really really appreciate it.

Thanks a lot

Hi Lemonfish: I am sure that someone on the forum will be able to help you. I personally don't know the name of any salon in Istanbul that does rastas but if there is one I am reasonably sure that it is in Taxim as your friends say. Maybe poster Alper who knows Taxim very well will able to help out on this one. For the moment LemonLady is stumped. Happy Travel

Hi all,

I feel responsible for the words of lemonlady:) (thanks) so I made a search through google. First of all as long as I learned Rastas (in turkish called Rasta, same) is the Bob Marley's hair style is it true?

On a forum it's said that there're no hairdressers specialized only on rasta in Turkey. In other words, every hairdresser can do this.

I found one in taksim:

http://www.babyface.com.tr/fiyatlar.html

Prices shown as 70-250 YTL, (50-175 USD)

Also, maybe the most famous hairdresser in Istanbul is MOS and they've many branches. The price is shown as 100 YTL (70 USD)

Price list: www.mos-kuafor.com/v1/?mos=fiyatlistesi

Branches: www.mos-kuafor.com/v1/?mos=salonlarimiz

I don't have any idea if they're good at their work of course but mayeb our lady members may on this topic more,

Best wishes, Alper
