BASEMENT: More Than Hair-Tamers

Sophia Hersi Smith

When I was a kid, going to the hairdresser’s was the most exciting part of my back-to-school ritual. It offered a brief glimpse at the glamorous life I thought all grown-up women led.

With high streets lined with hairdressing chains, each one offering a cheaper and quicker option, each one more impersonal than the last, it is wonderful to see a place like Basement emerge. Filling the space left void by the former Berlin club Kleine Reise in Kreuzberg, Basement is more than just a hair salon. A bar, an exhibition space as well as a fantastic salon, Basement has managed to transform the whole concept and experience of hairdressing. Sit back, relax, put yourself in their capable hands, and have a drink while you’re at it. Basement reminds us that getting your hair did can be an indulgence rather than a necessary evil.
