Lakmé Salon in Bandra promises to add some vibrant fun to your look with their monsoon specials. Rhea Dhanbhoora checks it out

The dull, drab weather can get you down, so it’s often that I’m in a mottled mood, devoid of colour during the monsoon. My review at Lakmé promised to change all that by adding a little dash of colour to my day. I’m not usually a fan of mixing hues, but the sample pictures for Lakmé Salon’s new monsoon art looked like a good way to brighten up a dull rainy day.

As I waited in the colourful salon and indulged in some people watching, noting the polite, friendly way in which the staff greeted and handled all their customers. The monsoon specials consist of hair extensions (Approximately Rs 650 per extension) and nail art (Rs 550 onwards).

First up were the hair extensions. These are by no means a new trend; college kids way back in 2007 were rocking mutli-coloured strands in their hair. In true monsoon colour spirit, I had two blue ones plied into my hair. They’re placed on a few strands and promise to stay on for at least 2-3 months. The blue is a pretty colour, but the price seemed a bit too much for one thin string. If they were thicker they’d look better and seem more worthwhile.

If you’re looking to make a style statement with your nails, the much more value for money nail art is right up your alley. My nail artist painted a pretty rainbow on four nails, keeping my ring finger a solid blue with drizzles of rain, in popular Accent Nail art style.

Coated with a pretty gold sparkle and top coat, my nails were shiny, colourful and ready to go in a short while, but one that didn’t seem rushed.

I wouldn’t opt for the hair extensions again, which seem to be slipping after just two weeks. The nail art on the other hand, is only just about beginning to chip and I haven’t been careful with it, so that’s impressive. If you can ignore a few décor faults, the service will distract you from the flaws. Prices are on par with other salons of the same caliber.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)Diplomacy and poise are essential if you expect to get along with others. A confrontation at this juncture will only act as a setback. This is the time to improve relationship and consolidate your position. You need to earn all the goodwill that you can muster. A chance meeting with someone could lead to romance. If committed elsewhere in marriage or love, mention it. You will win a good friend.
