Fifteen years ago Jan Monster opened the hairdressing salon Haarzaak (hair business) in Javastraat.
But now it’s time for a change and on 1 June the salon moved to a stylish property dating from 1882 in Prinses Mariestraat (parallel with Mauritskade just before the bridge at the end Frederikstraat on the right).
The ground floor premises are light and streamlined, complimenting the original 19th-century interior, and have been divided into different levels to create separate areas for the various activities: hair washing, cutting, colouring and courses and workshops.
Jan Monster works alone and is both a ladies and a gentlemens hairdresser and has been in the business 27 years. He learned how to cut hair in Florence, his expertise in colouring hair at Daniel Galvin in London and cosmetology at Augusto and John in The Hague.
Applying makeup requires the correct technique and colour choice. Jan will be starting cosmetology (the study and application of various beauty treatments, including haircare and makeup) courses and workshops. If you are interested contact him at the address or telephone number below.
