Monsoon Makeover & Contest | Juice Salon

Usually, I opt for a haircut only twice a year (April & September). And if I want the length of my hair to grow well, I will only opt for occasional trims and trust my stylist to add some magic by tweaking the hairstyle a bit. Oh! And I can be very fussy when it comes to choosing the right hair stylist. I have had the same stylist for years now and honestly, I get very skeptical when it comes to any form of hair makeovers with other stylists. So, when Juice Salon approached me to get a fun monsoon makeover, I wasn't too sure about it. But my team (especially Dhwanika, who takes care of Administration) kept insisting that I just get a little change of style. Eventually, I gave into their demands and agreed to get a mini monsoon makeover with Juice Salon. Now that my stylist is traveling for a month with a film crew, it was the right time for me to review the services at Juice (I have always loved the LYN and French pedicure here).
Oh! And we also have an exciting contest waiting for you at the end of this post.

The folks at Juice (Khar) had booked my appointment with their stylist Ronnie, who was extremely warm and a great listener. Minutes after exchanging hugs and greetings, we got down to work. Ronnie began by understanding my lifestyle and how I wear my hair (I mostly leave it open, except during workouts, run and dance rehearsals). Then, she began the 3-step hair inspection, when included inspecting the scalp, hair texture and checking for hair issues, if any. Currently, I am facing the same problem as most Mumbaikars - major residue build up due to the heat and humidity. Plus, if my workout hours increase, the residue builds up all the more. Ronnie took all the details into consideration and informed that I had a normal scalp and well maintained hair. She added that with a small change of style (I told her that I didn't want to cut off the length), she will chop off the dead ends and ensure that my hair looks healthy. Well, that's all I wanted and with that, we started off with the hair wash and conditioning process. Since she knew about my hectic lifestyle, Ronnie ensured that she adds a 10 minute long massage during the conditioning process. It was perfect, since I had a long working day.

After the wash, Ronnie began by getting rid of the dead ends and once done, she started work on getting the front layers right. Then, she moved on to the side bangs and within minutes, my mini makeover was done. Ronnie asked if I wanted any particular look (curls, straight) and I asked her to keep it simple and sleek. And there you go! A quick blowdry, leave-in serum and my new monsoon hairstyle was ready. Ronnie loved how the side bangs looked on me and said, "Next time, you should get fringes done in the front. You will look adorable." Well, maybe, I will give that a try in the future for sure.

They also offer exclusive hair spa treatments, which can be recommended after a detailed consultation with the in-house expert. As far as the haircuts are concerned, it is extremely important for a hair stylist to understand your lifestyle, needs and after examining your hair, give you tips on how you can improve the texture of your hair. Even while cutting / trimming, a good hairstylist will always inform you about the step-by-step process and keep you updated about the length that they are about to cut off. Ronnie did all that and much more, as she took great care of me and ensured that I have a relaxing experience, even during a haircut. The support staff is also very alert and humble. I also noticed that a lot of customers return back for their haircut and hair color services with their favorite stylist, which is proof of their long list of loyal customers.

Pros: Great staff
Good ambiance
Value for money
Good services

Cons: If you do not live in Bandra/Khar or the nearby areas,
locating the salon can be quite a task. Keep Google Maps handy.

Verdict: A must visit for those who believe in spending the right amount of money on quality services. Recommended services - Haircut, Hair color, LYN Manicure & Pedicure.

    I would love to win this haircut because its my birthday in August and the haircut session would be like a Pre birthday pampering session for me. I know I have very less chances in comparison to other girls to win this contest but I would love to get a haircut from Juice because its so near to my house and I really want them to give me a unique look for my birthday. The monsoon season can be tough on us guys too because our hair can be unmanageable and dripping wet coz it takes time to dry. Plus all the dirt get soaked spoiling our scalp. Hope to win this contest and #GetTheLookWithJuice
