Cuts & conversations

If homely salons are your thing and you enjoy a good chat, newly opened Samantha’s Salon in Bandra is right up your alley, says Rhea Dhanbhoora

Bubbly hairstylist, Samantha D’souza finally has her own salon. It’s as homely as they get and that’s exactly why I fell in love with it. Its white and pink décor peppered with black chairs, long mirrors and lampshades add to the well-lit ambience. The salon is surprisingly spacious and well-designed, with little nooks and crannies dedicated to different items.

I opted to get a hair spa (`1,000) done and while the salon doesn’t have a dedicated area for hair spas, you’ll be made to feel relaxed during the procedure, complete with a stress busting massage. It also left my hair surprisingly less sticky and weighed down as the salon uses products with natural ingredients.

At Samantha’s, they manage to achieve a balance between conversations and silence. However, the music is a bit outdated, which may put some people off.

Even though it’s laidback, the salon is extremely professional; we can vouch for Samantha’s haircuts and styling without a doubt. Prices are not over-the-top either.

A simple wash starts at `200 and a blow dry at `350, while haircuts start from `500 for guys and `800 for girls. Their Keratin treatments start from `3,500 and hair straightening costs `3,500 onward. They also do makeup for `2,500.

My hair was soft and shiny after the hair spa, making it worth spending money over, in a salon that’s refreshingly down to earth and devoid of the false adulation that plagues other salons in the suburb. Add it to your list of favourites, we assure you that you won’t leave disappointed.
