A Hair Makeover at Warren Tricomi Salon

A Hair Makeover at Warren Tricomi Salon

Review

While I was still contemplating which haircut I should go for this season, Warren Tricomi Salon invited me for an experiential at their new VR Bengaluru boutique salon and spa; talk about perfect timing! On offer was not just a haircut, but their Warren Tricomi Special manicure & pedicure as well.

Elegant and modern with sheer simplicity of design & concept; from the hair spa/ pedicure stations to the art on the wall, everything has been tastefully and insightfully chosen at the Spa. That Spa la Vie by L’OCCITANE believes in “L’Art de Vivre”, the French art of slowing down & savouring each luxurious moment, reflects in every corner of the spa; right from the spacious foyer to the way the ambiance embraces you into its accommodating arms as you walk into the spa premises. Treatments offered at the Spa include Aromachologie soaking ceremonies, Scrubs & Wraps, Ayurveda treatments, Couple’s Treatments, Facials and Manicures/Pedicures.

After a guided tour of the spa, I was settled in the lounge area for a detoxifying & very delicious cup of tea containing liberal amounts of lemon, ginger & honey. Drinking a few cups every day will up your immunity, I was told. Now I was sufficiently relaxed and all set to experience the services on offer.

Warren Tricomi Special Manicure & Pedicure

The manicure/ pedicure space is relaxing and comfortable; with ample magazines to read {I rarely get to just sit and read a magazine anymore}. The service: warm water, delicious scents, a scrub, followed by a massage and mask – what’s not to love! I picked a coral red polish and left feeling relaxed and refreshed.

What makes the Warren Tricomi Special Manicure & Pedicure special is the use of Forrest Essentials Sandalwood & Turmeric Scrub for 15 minutes, followed by the Forest Essentials Kokum Butter & Honey Pack that is kept on for another 15 minutes. This helps in deep motorization of the skin & nails, and keeps them lively and hydrated. It is also an effective sun block agent and helps prevent & repairs damage caused to the skin by UVA & UVB sun rays.

Haircut

My aim: Not a big change, just healthy looking hair with volume.

I have rarely been effective at articulating what I want to a stylist, usually resulting in mediocre results. Warren Tricomi senior stylist, Houpu, appointed to assist me did an excellent job with listening to my concerns, and we agreed to take off a couple of inches to remove split ends and to add long layers to provide more shape & dimension to my hair. The end result: an easy to wear & style haircut with lovely natural layers taking off just enough of the dead ends to give my hair new life & bounce!

I got a natural and healthy looking result, which is all I wanted! Houpu is an amazing stylist, which was evident not only by my final look, but by how he paid attention to what I wanted, asked questions, and offered suggestions. I would recommend bringing a magazine or photographs to give your hair stylist some ideas about what you would like. You can alternatively ask their opinion on which style would suit your face shape best.

I felt really welcomed by the attentive staff. Before leaving I told Houpu that I loved how my hair looked, and would be back as I finally had found a stylist I could trust. Overall, I could not have been happier with the process or the end result.

Note: Don’t be hesitant to emphasize what you want. I know some hairstylists can be intimidating but you have to remember that it’s your hair.
