Sophie’s Choice Hair Boutique – Oia, Santorini, Greece

If you’re trying to make a good choice of where to get your hair done, make sure it’s Sophie’s Choice.

Sophie and Her Choice

Having worked on the hair scene for the past 16 years, Sophie worked in Crete for a while before moving to Oia and opening her very own hair salon.  Not only did Sophie make the “choice” to open the shop on her own with an ambitious dream, but she is the only hairdresser in Oia!

Sophie has seen a big increase in business in the past three years since she opened.  But are we really surprised to hear that? No, we’re not. After all, when you’re the only game in town, chances are tourists are going to be flocking to your place in droves during the summer months.   Sophie may see more foreign faces during July and August, but when it comes to non-summer months, her business is sustained by those loyal locals who love coming in to get their beauty on.

Make ‘Sophie’s’ Your Choice

I may have been a foreigner, but I would be a regular customer of Sophie’s if I could be.  If for no other reason, than that her hands and my scalp absolutely belong together. There are few people in the world who can work my scalp the way that Sophie could. She was aboslutely incredible with that scrubbing and massaging. Basically, if she were a man I would marry her. But just for her hands.

Her blowouts aren’t too shabby either. She laughed when I kept vacillating over what I wanted done. Straight. No. Curly. No, straight. But with a braid. Wait, no. Put it up. Oh, I don’t know. You decide.  Okay, straight. With the braid.

While her talents are not to be dismissed, because she is very talented, one thing is for sure: Sophie is an extremely friendly and happy person.  From the moment I walked in, until the moment I left, she did nothing but smile and laugh.  With a good level of spoken English, you won’t have any problems communicating with her either. An important fact for the tourists who need to explain what they’d like her to do.

If you’re still not convinced that Sophie’s is the choice to make, why not check out the video below…

Now that you see how amazing I looked after she made me over, there’s really no excuse not to stop in and get your do done! And when you do, make sure to tell her that Lisa sent you!
