This achingly cool Italian salon at United Valley on Changle Lu is popular amongst Shanghai’s international crowd, thanks to a mix of English, Italian and Chinese staff. As well as a great cut, here you can get a range of technical services – such as scalp treatments and digital perms – but Contesta is probably best-known for its colouring skills.
