Review: Dilshad’s Salon- Fixing Bad Hair Days
Tucked away in the heart of Bandra at Mount Mary Steps is Dilshad’s flagship salon. As I hurriedly climbed the metal stairs one afternoon to make it in time for an appointment there, I observed a few young hairstylists lounging on the deck outside, taking their coffee break. The place had a low-key relaxed vibe. No snootiness, just there to make your hair awesome!
I approached the front desk and gave my name and appointment time and was asked to take a seat at the couch in front. While I waited to be attended, I observed photographs of all the top Bollywood celebs including Shah Rukh Khan lining the walls, “Ahh! So this is where I need to come if I eventually want to make my Hindi film debut.” I thought to myself. Jokes aside, Dilshad and her team have established themselves as the go-to hair stylist for many of the top Bollywood celebrities today. In fact while I was there, I saw Shahid Kapoor walking out after grooming himself to perfection.
My hair stylist arrived and I was seated immediately. Since I was on my way to a wedding reception, I ask her, “Some curls perhaps?” She agreed but decided to shape my hair a bit first. Snip Snip Snip! 45 minutes and a bit of hairspray later, I absolutely loved what she did! Thanking her, I rushed out.
My verdict: Well, I’ve been back numerous times and each time loved a new haircut or style they have suggested. Also, the advice given for hair care has been awesome and not at all sale-sy, be it a hair treatment or a hair care product.
