    Default In the hair salon

    Ok, so I go to this dominican hair salon in Canada and find myself at a loss for words like Rollers, Dryer, Curls ect. Can someone please come up with a list of words pertaining to a hair salon?!?

    Default good idea for a topic

    Hair dryer = blower (or blowel, as I saw on a sign the other day)
    Rollers = rulos
    Curls = rizos
    Desrizar = to straighten
    Cortar = to cut
    Lavar =to wash
    Corte = haircut
    Peine = comb
    Cepillo = brush
    Tijeras = scissors
    'La maquinita' = electric clippers

    rollers are rolos

    testurizador is also so straighten

    permanente is a curly perm

    pinchos are bobby pins

    rinse or acondicionador is conditioner

    champu is shampoo

    tratamiento is treatment

    recortar la punta is to cut the ends

    secador is the hair dryer where you put your head inside with your rolos

    Although not related to hair, they can be found in a salon.
    Unas- nails
    Manicure and pedicure the same.
    Trenzas/Trencitas- Braids
    Peluca-Wig
    Mechas??- It sounds like that and it means streaks buy you can also say Rayos- don't know if that is the correct spelling though.


    I forget how to say elastics like elastic bands for your hair.

    Arrow Aquí en Panamá se dice…

    Morenita G,

    This is one area of Spanish where there is some standardization. Many of the terms are similar in most places but I will offer you what I am seeing here in Panamá (which is where I am right now). Coincidentally the only terms that are new to me (or better said different from what I use) from this list are: #1 and #2.

    Servicios de belleza:

    1) Anti Permanentes- curls
    2) Alisado- (quitarse los rizos) – to straighten
    3) Blower
    4) Champú
    5) Cortes
    6) Depilación- (body) hair removal
    7) Extensiones- extensions
    8) Mechitas- highlights
    9) Permanente(s)- perm
    10) Texturizados or texturizantes- same as English (no estoy segura)
    11) Tintes- dye or color rinse
    12) Tratamiento para la caída del cabello y resequedad -treatment for breaking hair and dryness.

    OK, great thread. What about "inverted bob". It is my haircut. Anyone who knows both languages and familiar with hair able to help out?

    Also, how about eyebrows? I'd like mine shaped.

    What's a swoop bang on the side? Aren't bangs normally found on the forehead? It's been a while since I cut hair. Might be easier to bring in a picture if you can find one.

    A black rinse? You should specify here too. Do you want something that will last that is mixed with peroxide then it's a tintes.

    Words like swoop may not translate well.
