ombre mermaid hair bali style bohemium styling special event hairstylist

SPOILED HAIRDRESSERS is an institution one-man show brought delivered to us by another Dutchman, Max Vanderhoek, who stepped on the hair and beauty scene as one of the original wave of accomplished foreign hair stylists in Bali when he opened Spoiled quite some 10 years ago.
The chic, glass-fronted and sun-drenched salon (with handy adequate parking out front) is conveniently located in Umalas between Seminyak and Canggu, and it attracts a loyal clientele who flock there from all over the island. Many of them display a devotion to Max – “I may cheat on my husband, but not my hairdresser” – that perhaps husbands should be worried about, and within the intimate surrounds, these repeat customers end up old familiar friends, gossiping over freshly brewed lattes and often cakes or treats brought in by regulars.
Award-winning Max opened his own first salon in Holland at the age of 18, and has been a successful hair stylist for over three decades. The key to his popularity is personalized service, as well as his specialities specializing in blonde highlights and colour, Asian hair, Keratin treatments, Men's hair and special event styling. They also have a fantastic nail bar and will soon open a massage pamper room upstairs. Each client isClients are also privy to individual consultations with Max, who insists on meeting all new clients personally..
Max doesn’t beat around the bush – giving the best advice over excellent coffee, drawing on years of experience and knowing what havoc this climate and environment can wreak do toon hair. For him, the best most rewarding part of his labours is seeing clients with low self-esteem emerge utterly confident with their new look and fabulous hair. He also loves chatting with clients about broader topics including new restaurants and happenings around town, and he offers great introductions between clients for all sorts of things. Spoiled is a really social and fun place to spend an afternoon or a morning!
Should Max be out of the salon, hisMax’s staff are highly trained and just as knowledgeable as he. In fact, he has had the same team for a long time, which is testament to their talents and his dedication as a manager and owner.
