Hair Makeover at Jean-Claude Biguine Salon & Spa

 

Hey everyone!

Jean-Claude Biguine Salon and Spa recently opened a new branch at Mumbai and they invited me to experience their services. The Salon is located near Costa Coffee at Lokhandwala (Andheri) and offers all salon as well as Spa services.

Upon arriving at the Salon, I was greeted by the staff who gave me a small tour of the space. The decor is very tasteful and the place has a very open, airy vibe. I particularly liked the display counters for the products where colorful bottles of Kerastase and LOreal hair products were on the display. Instead of linear rows of chairs, the Salon has small tables each with 4 chairs around it – giving it a very relaxed, coffee-shop like ambiance! The spa rooms are located towards the back end. Here are a few pictures of the Salon –

I decided to go for a Hair Makeoverhair cut and color.

I was offered a beverage while the Stylist Riya and I talked about the look I wanted to go for. I wanted to go for front bangs and I had a few reference pictures to show her. Since I have a very small forehead, Riya suggested I go for side swept bangs instead of straight front ones. For the color, she showed me a few options from the color chart. I wanted a reddish dark brown and Riya used  INOA 4.26  and INOA 5.62 mixed together to create the shade. (These are Ammonia free and much gentler on the hair compared to Permanent hair color)

Riya started by applying the color on the roots and once the entire root area was covered, she applied the color along the lengths. While the color was on my hair (about 25 min), I browsed the latest Grazia and Marie Claire to kill the time. After 25 min, Riya took me to the other side of the salon to wash off the color. The hair wash took a while but it was really relaxing since the reclining chair had a built in massager- something I’ve not encountered before in other salons!

 

Once the hair wash was done, Riya started with the hair cut. Since my ends didn’t need much attention, she added a few layers around the face and the side bangs. She then blow-dried the hair (the end result is what you see in the pictures) dividing them into sections.

I love my hair so far! The color isn’t very obvious right now, I’m told it’ll lighten up in a few washes and would be more clearly visible then. As for the cut, I love it fresh from a blow dry but I hope I can style it well after a wash! Overall, I had a great experience – loved the ambiance of the place and the staff/service was excellent as well!

    1. When you tip , you should tip from the heart. Who doesn’t want to be appreciated. At least 50 to 100 bucks or say 10 percent of your bill. Eyebrows and upper lip not necessary. If you like the service and you notice a lot of effort being put…then surely leave something behind…

      The next time the beautician will make more of an effort and you may just end up being her loyal customer….

  1. The new salon looks clean and upbeat but I always wait before a new place opens up, u have to test them when they are busy and then judge their services.

    No doubt they have done a good job on you and you look great, good pics.

  2. Horrible Experience of the Manager at lokhandwala Salon!! never ever visit!!
    Hights of arrogance and mismanagement -is JCB all about !
