Getting a Haircut in Krabi Town

If you need a haircut in Krabi Town, I can recommend Tak Salon (ตั๊ก ซาลอน) on Utarakit Road about 200 meters from the Crab Statue. They might be slightly more expensive than a random salon in Thailand, but the guy who cut my hair was really good. He also styled my hair just the way I wanted it. And how much did I paid? 300 Baht (about $8).


You don’t need to make an appointment, just show up when you want your haircut and hopefully, you’ll not have to wait so long. It’s good to take in a photo of the hairstyle you desire, as the barbers English is very limited. I have my wife who speaks Thai, making things easier.

My wife often washes her hair in a salon when we are in Thailand. It’s cheap, relaxing and they take good care of you.

Two weeks after I cut my hair I went back to the salon just to style my hair for the wedding pictures we took that day. Even if you’re not in Krabi Town, I recommend getting a haircut in Thailand.

    Thanks Tom, I used your recommendation while i was Krabi and thankfully didn’t leave with a mullet. Communication was difficult, and I paid western prices for my color ..but not having your hair butchered is worth it I suppose. Cheers

      Hi, Christina!

      Thanks for getting back to me. I’m glad you were satisfied even though you could not save a little on the coloring.
