A new outfit or a new haircut? Go to Bloem Amsterdam!
Bloem Amsterdam is a vintage store slash children’s hairdresser at the Gerard Doustraat in De ijp. Does the name Bloem sound familiar? Bloem has been around for 8 years, only now with new owners and a new location. This is the place to let your kids get a haircut, to shop for a new outfit or to just sit and read a magazine. But, are you in need for a haircut as well? Since recently, Bloem is dan also the place to be!
(children’s)Hairdresser Bloem Amsterdam
Whether you a hair touchup or a whole new coup. We all sometimes need a haircut! Easier said than done when it comes to children. Kids are quite movable and easily distracted. At Bloem they can therefore take place on a yellow motorcycle or a green army jeep: this makes it one big adventure! But with the new location of Bloem there is also room for you! In addition to a children’s corner, there is also an adult chair where you can get your hair cut or colored.
Vintage shop Bloem Amsterdam
Besides getting your hair done, you can also shop at Bloem! Here they sell vintage children and women’s clothing. Now I must tell you that the vintage collection will soon be replaced by very cool Danish brands! Beautiful basic items. But until then you can still shop the best vintage items here!
