I got my hair colored this week and I am beyond excited to have found a great place in Gurgaon for this experience. Geetanjali Salon in Ambience Mall Gurgaon was the place where I went without any recommendation, but I can now vouch for a global hair color from them. (pics below)
One of my best friend wanted to get her hair colored and wanted to know if I knew any good place for color. I knew a great place in Dubai – Krysalis Salon & Spa and a great hairstylist – Sugandh. I have had my first color and some of the best haircuts from this young talented lady. If anyone is looking for an awesome salon/spa in Dubai then do check out this place. Krysalis has amazing staff and a great ambience. You truly would enjoy being pampered there.
Now coming back to my friend and her desire to find a great place in Delhi/NCR region. I did not have a clue and for the same reason I did a bit of research online to find a good place for global hair color in Gurgaon. I could not really find much so we thought of heading to a mall where we would find few high end salons who might not screw up our hair.
And lo behold we were standing in front of Geetanjali Salon. I asked them if they would take in two clients for hair color without prior appointment and they said yes – *Brownie Point* . We were escorted to our chairs and introduced to our stylist – Mr. Khan. I told him about the exact shade that I want ( Thanks to Sugandh who made sure I take down the shade number in case I wanted to do the same color. Shade is L’oreal 6.35 mixed with 7.35 – mix together 50:50 in case they do not have the color ask for Copper brown) Khan told me he can do it *Brownie Point*
Since, my friend was new to the hair color experience she waned to go with the same shade, however, Khan mentioned it would be a bit loud for someone who is getting her hair colored for the first time. Instead he suggested to go more subtle with the shade but still in the same color family. This made him gain few extra brownie points as he was investing his suggestions and not just looking forward to mint money. *Extra Brownie Points*
After his honest opinion my friend and I had more confidence on Khan and asked him to take take charge of our hair. An application of the color mixture lasted 10 minutes and another 35-40 minutes for it to stay on. During this process the staff offered us refreshments and a cuppa chai was ordered. After 40 minutes time was to head towards washing off the color. I must admit I hate these sessions since I do not like the backwash chairs as they hurt my neck after a while. However, I loved the way it was done. The massage session while shampooing was soooo good, I actually learnt few tips from the person on how to massage your scalp properly while shampooing to stimulate blood circulation. *Brownie Point*
Once I got back to the chair , Khan blow dried my hair and styled them perfectly *Brownie Point*. Needless to say I was in love with it.
So all in all I would highly recommend Geetanjali Salon & Khan in Ambience Mall, if you are looking for a change.
Cost for me – Rs. 4500/-
