THE 7 BEST PLACES TO GET YOUR HAIR DONE IN BANGALORE

Saying goodbye to a trusted hair stylist is like saying goodbye to a family member… alright maybe not really, but close!

Hair types, products, colors, and popular cuts are not always the same from city to city, yet we feel we’re lucky to have found a few good salons with great stylists that still leave us with luscious locks we love.

 

Scent Jakkur

The environment is relaxed and well-designed with signature black leather seating and silver accenting throughout the salon. Treatments include Cut + Color, Blowouts, Styling and Hair Masks for your locks, Nail Services, body treatments such as Facial and Massages, Event Makeup, and hair removal including Threading and Waxing.

Being at Blown feels more like being at some cool, industrial bar. And it almost is! Their very own F&B manager Meghna stocks this salon with quite the wine and cocktail menu. The reception desk doubles as a bar which displays a selection of wine and spirits. Sip on a glass of Ice Wine (!) or a Pitcher of Sangria all while getting your blowout done. A great place to see and be seen, this trendy salon is the ideal spot to get your hair done with some friends before a night on the town!

The upscale Rossano Ferretti salon on the 5th floor of the Ritz-Carlton Hotel has long been recommended as one of the best salons in town and even a change in director has not affected that reputation.

The stylists here are used to working with International clients and familiar with all types of hair so you won’t need to worry. While you’re most likely to be the only customer in there, you will walk out with a great cut and color!
