I want to begin this post by thanking all of you for making 2015 such a rocking year for me! And since it is the first day of the year, I want to begin with a bang. Today,
I am going to show you my hair makeover by Lakme Absolute Salon J
I know I have already shown you a few glimpses on Facebook and Twitter but today I am going to detail on the entire process.
I walked into the Lakme Absolute Salon, Bandra and was immediately greeted by the happy receptionist, who introduced me to my stylist, Santosh.
They fussed over me asking me if I would like to eat or drink something and then handed me a big fat book full of looks. I had to choose from ‘Metamorphosis’; a play of hair colours, followed by ‘Illusion’; a tryst of hair lengths and textures and ended with the classic ‘Moulin Rouge’; bouffants and updos galore.
I was confused between these two looks
After deliberating for more than 45 minutes, I finally chose the Auburn Blend but with a little twist of my own.You see, in the coming weeks I had job interviews lined up and I could now shock my bosses to be with my red tresses. So, I requested Santosh to give me really subtle highlights.
This is my ‘Before’ pic. I bet you can see the fear in my eyes. I was getting my hair coloured for the first time!
After consulting the hair colour with me, Santosh applied a beautiful brown in certain sections of my hair. He told me that it would take 30 minutes for my hair to get coloured. I look like a crazy alien, don’t I?
After application, he checked on me a couple of times and when he was satisfied with the hair colour, he took me for a hair wash.
It is time for snipping off my locks
Santosh told me that he would maintain my length but will play around with layers to get a beautiful effect. After I was satisfied with the cut, he started styling my hair
Tadaa… This is my final look
This is how my hair looked like after two days
The total cost for colouring and styling will come up to Rs 5000 to 6000 depending on the length of your hair, the amount of colour used and so on.
Hope you liked my review and me new look 🙂
