It’s been a while and this page has been kind of quiet. So, you remember when I wrote about how Myglamm is not a salon anymore but is now a cosmetics company? Stay with me because this might get a little confusing. Myglamm was a home salon service. I reviewed it here. Now they are a cosmetics company. I wrote about that, here. Now , the salon part of it is called Elle Salon and I am reviewing them today.
So, I usually get a call from the team at Myglamm asking me if I need to get waxed. I strongly believe this is a conspiracy by my husband because I have been postponing visits to the salon. However, when they called me this time, my eyebrows were in dire need of some threading and were starting to merge with my hairline. So I called them over and of course they weren’t going to trek half way across the city for a Rs.50 service so I added in a manicure and pedicure. :D. Okay, let’s get to the review.
My home. I am not going over this again.
I don’t know if the peeps over at Elle Salon are having teething problems or they are just bungling up things but when I got an email from them, they had missed out on mentioning the hair spa that I wanted. Also, their billing is quite a mess. I was told my entire service would cost me Rs.1546. That’s with a Rs.500 discount and 100 glam points which I had and had no clue about. Later, when billing me (which I did through paytm) the ladies confirmed that I had to pay Rs.1646. So strange. And then when they sent me the invoice, I was charged for the upper lips. Why you do this?
Both the ladies, Shradha and Deepali arrived on time and were pretty clean. Something I pay a lot of attention to because I find it quite icky when the ladies arrive smelly and with unkempt hair and nails. Once I was ready, (I had to take time to upload a video which was this one) , we got down to business. They had set up the place pretty well with clean sheets and the like. At this point, I discovered that while they had everything for the hair spa, they didn’t have a waxing machine for my upper lip. So I asked them to cancel that. But this process needs to be addressed. The services that are confirmed, must be delivered. Anyhoo, both the ladies did a good job, the tools were clean and everything was well done. The nail polish shades on offer weren’t too enticing so I gave them my own. Also, they still have bags with the branding of Myglamm but I guess that switch will take time.
With the hair spa, I got a wonderful massage. However, I had a to shower really quickly to rinse out all that because it’s really awkward to have these women waiting for you while you shower. Overall, and I have said this before, Elle Salon is one of the better at home salon services. Parisian though, I think not.

Verdict:Elle Salon wasn’t really a risk as I have taken myglamm services before and liked them. However, I am quite miffed with the billing process. Something that they need to work on quickly. Overall, the entire range of services, the professionals and their service redeemed the brand. I would recommend Elle Salon but would suggest clearing out details first.
