Hairdressers & Barbers
There are several hairdressers on Koh Tao, but as with any kind of personal grooming business, opinions on quality and reliability may vary. Language barriers have the potential to cause misunderstanding and confusion, so it’s always recommended to have a clear idea of what you want and if possible, a picture you can show the staff. In general, barber services and hairdressers on Koh Tao are cheap, and there are a few main options that tend to be recommended:
Eve Hair Studio
Eve Hair Studio has always been one of the most highly recommended hairdressers on Koh Tao. The shop itself has moved location a couple of times over the years and is now located in Sairee, just off the main road. If you take the turn inland at the crossroads by 7-Eleven, the shop is located about 24metres up, on the left side.
Eve and her staff speak great English and offer a full range of cutting and colouring services for both men and women. They can also work with hair extensions and braids, and offer longer-term treatments such as chemical straitening too. Aside from hairdressing services, Eve Hair Studio also provides nails and makeup and is a popular choice for weddings and special events.
You can find more information and contact Eve directly through the Eve Hair Studio Facebook page.
Bibi’s (Koh Tao Hair Salon)
Another favourite choice of Koh Tao hairdresser, Bibi’s is located on the main road in Mae Haad on the bend going out of town towards Chalok Baan Kao, opposite the Thai Inter medical clinic and 7-Eleven.
Bibi’s is a friendly and professional service for both male and female cuts. Bibi’s English is great, and as well as hair cutting she offers a range of barber services such as beard trimming, razor shaving, and head shaving.
