Since entertainment agencies are clustered in Gangnam, there are many beauty salons with star-studded clientele in the area. “I went to get my hair done and I saw a celebrity!” is a common story of Gangnam. Especially, the back alleys of the Cheongdam-dong Luxury Brands Street, are dotted with many upscale beauty salons with fancy and spacious interiors.

Jenny House, which operates two branches: Chungdam Hill and Primo, is a popular salon with a 500+ celebrity clientele that includes TVXQ and Girls’ Generation (SNSD). It is known for creating chic and trendy hairstyles that best fit clients. Sandara Park and EXO’s Ray can be seen at A by BOM, a beauty salon famous for make-up techniques that make the face look smaller and skinnier. So if you want Sandara Park’s small face, this is the place to go. If you have watched beauty programs like Get It Beauty and Take Care of My Dressing Table, you’d probably want to visit Beauté 101. This beauty space operated by Hwang Bang-Hoon, who appeared in the programs, offers a complete wedding program that is already very popular among brides-to-be. All three places have English-speaking staff so you don’t have to worry. In addition, Dashing Diva Korea is a nail shop where can get the same glittery nails of K-pop stars. If there is a particular design that you’d like to have done, bring a picture and show them. Reservations are required!
