My hair was starting to look quite sad and unhappy and I decided it was time to give it some TLC with some chop chop. And after extensive Google searches for a salon to review, I settled on Hairmasters Salon in Bandra. Now, Bandra has a lot of salons so I obviously did a lot of searching. Also, I was looking to get a fun haircut so this place hair in the name so I was expecting magic.
The place is quite luxurious looking, even from the outside. I think they were undergoing renovation so I am going to not mention the wooden beams across the board. Inside, Hairmasters is done up in black and gold giving a rather harem-like feel. I have never been to a harem. This is what I assume they are like. Anyway, if not this lit up, it could turn pretty dingy inside. But it isn’t. Maybe only I find this much black overwhelming?
When I called up, the lady on the phone explained that they have all levels of hairstylists depending on their years of experience. I chose to go with a junior most because, well, budget. This was Rs.1200. She took down my details, my number and the like. It was the first time that I got there before time so I don’t know if Hairmasters calls up to check and confirm appointments. My apologies to people like me who don’t expect me to turn up on time.
George was assigned to me who seemed really sweet and as soon as I sat down, we got to the playing with the hair bit. Here, George told me about how he was going to give me a haircut that would frame my face nicely so as to balance out my hips. I know right? You can do that. Then, I was lead to the hair washing area where Ajay washed my hair and gave me a massaged. I may have snored during this time.
Next, we got down to the cutting which started off with me standing . After snipping away, George told me he could tell that I liked to experiment with my hair to which I nodded vigorously. He then blowdried my hair and when I asked (which I had also mentioned before) about my bangs which tend to grow out quickly and look rather flat, he said he would fix it but didn’t do enough to give them volume. The haircut was disappointing, the blow dry even more so. The cut didn’t even hold for a day. By the next day, my bangs were already looking tired. When I walked out, I liked the cut but didn’t love it. I have seen haircuts shave years off people’s faces and this one at Hairmasters did nothing of the sort. Also, since George had noticed that I like experimenting, he could have done some, well, experimenting.
