There is something awesome that comes along with the high beauty standards here in Medellin…cheap salons! There are hair/nail salons on every other block. I’ve found that a good nail salon charges about 6,000 COP for either a manicure or pedicure. Amazing hair cuts here are under 15,000 COP, and a full color, cut, and style will run about 90,000 COP. I took advantage of the low prices and got some pretty crazy hair done. Got to love the work. Plus, many of the salons are full of wonderful people. The one I go to exclusively hires gay male hair dressers, which I think is fantastic!
