brushHairdis is a large shop selling professional hair care products. The store is open to everybody and you’ll find litres of lotions and potions, normally only available at hair salons. Shampoos, hair dyes, brushes, extensions, straighteners, they have it all.

I wasn’t really looking for anything in particular, but having walking passed Hairdis on numerous occasions, I figured it was time to see what it was all about.

The shelves are packed with shampoos, conditioners, serums and other hair care by famous brands as L’Oreal Professional, Wella and Schwarzkopf (and many more), and blowdryers and straighteners by Babyliss. There’s a very large large offer of hair dyes and bleach as well, but unless you know (someone who knows what they’re) you’re doing, I recommend you get some advice on what colours to pick and how to go about it. Same thing goes for the keratin treatments available, meant to feed you hair with a keratin boost as to relax it and end up with straight hair. (Growing up in the nineties I’ve attempted quite a few hair colour changes myself, more than often ending up with me not daring to remove the towel from my head and my dad laughing. Trust me, some thing are better left to professionals.)

On to hair accessories then. Lots and lots of combs and brushes. I was particularly pleased to see some Mason Pearson ones as well. They’re meant to last forever (craftsmanship form London) but come with a price tag easily ten times more expensive than an ordinary brush. If you can’t be bothered growing your hair, there are extensions in a myriad of colours, and all sorts of pins and clips to keep them up.

More professional gear included capes, chairs, trolleys and lots of make-up to finish up your new look.

Price-wise? You’ll pay more than at your chemist (makes sense, as he won’t sell the professional stuff), but definitely less than at your hair dresser’s. Unlike at the latter, you’re not tempted/pushed into buying products, but at the same time, you don’t really get to test them either. Luckily the staff knows what they’re selling, and help you out when you can’t choose.

Note: while in the shop, I overheard the sales man say a new Hairdis would open soon near Madou.

69 Chaussée de Charleroi, open during the week from 09.00-19.00 and on Saturday from 10.00-19.00
