Hair stylist Chris Yau
.. runs a spacious airy salon housed on the ground floor of one of Vienna’s signature 19th-Century apartment buildings. Blessed with abundant natural light, The Fringe has a soothing, uncluttered vibe that has made it a fast favourite among both the expat community and locals. On arriving in Vienna, Chris set his sights on opening a salon in Neubau, the city’s fashionable seventh district.
This is the centre of Vienna’s creative industries and home to its most cutting-edge bars, shops and restaurants. Located a short walk from the major sights of Vienna, Chris also enjoys a lot of passing trade from visitors staying at the numerous hotels in the area. The babble of English is a permanent feature of The Fringe, with a discreet downbeat soundtrack bubbling in the background. Whatever language you speak, you can be sure of a memorable experience and the team’s undivided attention at The Fringe.
