Where to purchase hair extensions in Croatia?

No where that I recommend. I did have an experience with a hair salon in Zagreb where I purchased Balmain hair extensions that cost me almost 8,000kn and I wouldn’t recommend these hair extensions. The clips unclip, the salon seems to not be able to colour your hair to match your own hair colour and there is no point in paying so much when they are cheaper online. I buy Bellami Hair from America. Yes, you’ll have to pay almost 40% in customs tax (approx. 1400kn) to get it into Croatia but these are the best hair extensions I have ever had.

Do you recommend a mechanic in Zadar?

Yes, AutoDirekt has saved me on numerous occasions around Zadar. There is no such thing as roadside assistance in Croatia, like NRMA and many mechanics will not come to your house if there’s a problem with your vechile. The boys from AutoDirekt have been a tremendous help and are very reliable.
