One of the most important things when you move to a new city is to find a good hairdresser who can speak your language and understand what you want. Many expats in Zurich have been telling us about Pedro Sanchez so NewInZurich decided to head to the centre of Zurich and talk to manager Michael von Mentlen to find out a little more. Here’s what we discovered:

NIZ: Who is Pedro and why did he start up in Zurich?

Michael: Pedro is a very calm, easy going and discreet hairdresser. Growing up in Venezuela he was passionate about hairdressing and worked for a very prestigious salon, taking care of celebrities, first ladies and VIPS. When Jacqueline Aguilera won the Miss World Contest in South Africa in November 1995, she chose Pedro to become her personal stylist for the next 4 years. He then moved to New York, where he undertook further training and styled models for Harper’s Bazaar, Elle Magazine and top Fashion Shows in New York.

NIZ: What is Pedro’s philosophy for hairdressing?

Michael: Our philosophy is to reveal our clients’ natural beauty and make them even more beautiful. You don’t always need a complete change of colour or highlights, sometimes a simple cut can make all the difference. It’s also very important that our customers can manage their own hair at home. We listen to our clients, understand their needs and give them advice about colour and cuts. Our blow outs are fabulous and make you feel a million dollars!

We also offer nail services and try to give a “top to toe experience”. A new product which is extremely popular, is the new Olaplex treatment to give your hair the perfect condition and finish. We simply want our clients to look and feel their best. We also have stylists who specialise in dealing with curly hair, thick hair and very fine hair too. We always try to match the stylist with the right client.

NIZ: What events do you run?

Michael: We run a variety of events in our salons. With our exclusive brand Leonor Greyl we offer a free scalp analysis event once a year using a special camera. We’re then able to advise you on the correct shampoo and conditioner for your hair. Our product range is very exclusive enabling us to find the perfect product for each person’s hair.

Michael: Our team is very international and they speak several different languages. It really helps us to understand our clients’ needs making us very popular with the Expat community in Zurich. Our service is extremely personalized and all our staff are very well trained, attending regular courses to keep up with all the latest international techniques and trends.

NIZ: You’re involved in some very prestigious events and a member of Leading Salons of the World.

Michael: We styled Max Loong and his fiancée for the Zurich Film Festival and we regularly style the hair of other VIP clients. We also run exclusive fashion shows in the Maldives and of course, it is a great honour for us to be a member of the very exclusive hairdressing circle “Leading Salons of the World”.

We make sure that the hair, make-up and nail colour all fit with the dress, the bride’s skin tone and the whole ensemblePedro also runs the hair show at the Hochzeitsmesse (wedding show) in Zurich.

NIZ: Do you do men’s hair?
