Which Salon Do You Trust With Hair cuts?

Hmmm, iv tried a lot over the years but i still end up going to the good, local ones iv grown up on. But off the top of my head- Barbra (a lady who used to work in Claridges but now has her own salon) is my absolute hands down favourite. However, she is difficult to get a hold of , so sometimes i go to Looks/Geetanjali who do a decent job. Which salons do you trust?

I completely agree, nothing better than local salons.. They give you more attention, no hurry to get another customer and understand taste. I use Trends and Ponytail

Till high school, my parents got my hair cut from the local barber, Mahendra. He would come to our house, make me sit on a low stool in the lawn where every passer by could see me, and go snippety-snip. I would not lift up my head, nor say a single word out of sheer embarrassment. Once I got into college, I refused to sit with Mahendra any longer and went ahead and experiemented with different salons. But looking back, I can say that Mahendra did his job quite well. :D :D

I always feel its the person who does the hair for you not the Salon or the brand. I may go to the most expensive Salon and pay top bucks but end up with mediocre hairstyle.

I have stuck to one stylish since the last 6-7 years I think in Bangalore. His name is Abdul. He has changed so many Salon till date but I pursue him everywhere. I am based in Mumbai now but I travel to Bangalore for my haircut. (Ofcourse my parents live in Blore so I often visit them)

I would highly recommend him for a no fuss, no brainer, brush and rush kinda of haircut. Leave in a comment if anyone wants to know his contacts.

Donno which palour he is currently working with. Last I went to him he was at Indiranagar 2nd Stage – Bangalore, some new fancy Salon.

Srivalli May 21, 2014 at 10:21 pm

Hi Avanti,
Thanks so much for telling me about Abdul. I went to him today, and he gave me a really good hair-cut. In fact, I went from shoulder length hair to a tousled pixie cut like this: http://www.realsimple.com/beauty-fashion/hair/hair-made-easier-00000000049931/page3.html
he was very attentive, understood what i wanted and did the cut very very well. He even took the trouble to show me how what i wanted would look like from the back by searching a few magazines and showing me the pictures of pixie cuts there.
will definitely go back to him. He is currently at lakme studio on cunningham road, Bangalore.

Thank you so much for telling me about Abdul. I went to him today and he really did very good job in giving me excellent hair cut which really suited to my face .
Thanks a lot to Abdul I have travelled all the way from kamanahalli to MG road but its really worth going to him whereever he is.

akhila May 14, 2015 at 4:06 pm

I went to Abdul couple of weeks back (after looking at the reccos here) – just did not work for me. For 1200+, I got a terrible haircut and am waiting for my hair to grow back:(. To put it in context, I have thick, dry, frizzy hair that has big curls.

So, if any of you with my hair type is looking for a haircut, please visit Jeanne’s in indira nagar. That’s where I ran to after my terrible experience with Abdul. Good luck guys!

Reply

Smritika November 30, 2014 at 9:32 am

Abdul is great at his work. He gave me a very nice cut. I don’t prefer setting my hair after a cut.. Unless there’s any occasion to do so. So despite not getting my hair set, it looked great and the falls were quite visible. Neither does he presume to be busy, nor is in a hurry. So would recommend him to anyone. The only downfall is that the salon charges exorbitantly. Wish he would start his own salon so that we can avoid the unnecessary tax and brand value. Cz he himself is a brand now and doesn’t need another brand backing.

There is Reshmi in Kanya, Chennai. She does wonders to even super frizzy , dry hair. When in Hyderabad, I go to this lady in Habib’s who is out of the world.
I don’t go by the parlour but by the stylist. Some of them are magicians :)

Nithya, I checked that there are 6 branches of kanya, so in which one I might find Reshmi ? thanks :)

Reply

Nithya April 2, 2013 at 7:50 pm

The one in Besant Nagar. Please fix an appointment coz she is “most wanted” hair stylist in Kanya :P

The second option is Rizwana. But Reshmi is the best.

Hi Nithya, i was browsing for parlours in Chennai and came accross this post.. I have recently moved to Chennai and have super frizzy hair.. I noticed this line in your comment – “She does wonders to even super frizzy , dry hair. “.. :) So would like to try this stylist..

renu April 2, 2013 at 12:03 pm

I strongly believe, male barbers are better in leveling/trimming/styling your hair than a female barber. Female hair dressers have poor sense of giving hair a symmetrical cut. Telling that from experience when at Lakme my tresses were trimmed in a hap-hazard manner.

i used to go to my neighbourhood parlor lady for 17 years or so. She has done all cuts on my hair – all i used tell her is how long i want it. i used try every wild haircut through all these years- from boy mushroom cut till i finally settled for long long hair in layers. Omg…all i had to do is just go and sit in her chair- a middle class working lady and she used make me look different every time. 4 yrs ago she shut her shop and i think she has shifted somewhere….i think it was a sudden eviction and i don’t even know where she has gone and whether she has started another parlour..i though she’d be alwasy there…now i am left adrift ! the last 2 times i got a haircut – one made my long hair very short in name of layers and recently i got a haircut which is ok but i am not happy as such. I am still searching for a replacement…I am petrified of the fancy high end parlours……they talk so much and all i want is a great great haircut !But they refuse to listen to what i want…

I agree about the person-specific part but I am quite experimental as far as haircuts are concerned. ( I mean as experimental as a sarakari bank job can allow). The salons I found good are Habib’s Khan Market (look for Naushad, he will tell you the cheaper ways to keep hair stylish), Scissors (IIT Delhi ke opposite wali market).

Shruti April 6, 2013 at 1:01 am

For years i used to go to Rahul from Geetanjali salon in Green Park, Delhi but in the last couple of years i havent felt like he’s done a good job with my hair.. But in the last one year i found two who were just perfect. One is Anita from Geetanjali in Khan Market.. I just wanted to get a different look so I took a pic of Nadia dewulf from Anger Management to her even at the cost of looking like one of those wannabe ppl who wanna copy celebs n asked her if she could give me the same cut (half believing that she probably wont be able to replicate the look).. But she DID! I was so happy! she completely stuck to the brief and didnt shorten the length any more than I wanted her to.
The other one i like is this guy called Tilak from Grace and Glamour, sec 31, gurgaon. He is great with regular trims and also good at sticking to the brief (which i feel lots of hairstylists fail to do!)

I have medium length straight long hair with a very wide forehead which means I will need a very experienced and innovative person with a clean hand to give me a hairstyle which suits me the best. Straight hair if not cut clean will show in itself and cannot even hide.

I am from bangalore. I have tried – bounce, blunt and hakeem aleem. I used to visit bounce before till i found a great hair dresser in hakeem aleem . Bounce was ordinary nothing realy awesome. but surely better than blunt. Unfortunately my fav hair dresser at hakeem aleem left. and I ended up trying blunt and other salons and really dint enjoy my haircut that much. I went back to hakeem aleem and tried another stylist and I love my haircut. Over all the people know what they are doing. I highly recommend this place now. You could talk to the stylist about how you want yours . This is my experience.

Hi,
i had plan to get a pixie hair cut, so i did lot of research about all the Salons in Bangalore. Then i saw HOP UNISEX SALON in Malleshwaram. i had doubts, i was scared and i was nervous too. bz for the first time i was going to do my pixie cut. after the cut i was soo happy too c myself bz the cut was so gud and perfect (it was the way i wanted). and not even expensive. (i had quiet long hair, straightened two years before. they charged me only 550) very good service. they completely concentrate on what the customer wants. after every few minutes he was checking with me, and telling me in this length u look like this.

DO NOT GO THERE!! b:blunt, is exactly that – they are blunt – in their reactions and actions. I went in for a change of style and after loooooooooooooong discussions with the stylist assigned to me ( during which time he acted like I was boring the brains out of him ) he gave me a haircut which was nothing like what we discussed, did not suit my face type and overall made me look like a guy!!!! I actually burst into tears right there in front of the entire salon, cause my hair is so so important to me, and they didnt move a finger!! They shamelessly asked me to pay up and politely showed a sobbing me, the door!!!

Loved the post!
I absolutely think getting a good haircut depends on the stylist. Any suggestions in and around Indiranagar, Bangalore where I can get a good, easy to manage and smart haircut. I have wavy hair reaching a below my shoulder.

Hi everyone,
I have a different kind of hairtype which is straight from the top and curled at the bottom.I haven’t had a haircut since 4 years coz I am bored of getting the same old step cut everywhere. every stylist i ever visited has told me that this is the only cut that will suit my hair type. I desperately want a change now though I want to keep my length on.please suggest me some good stylists. Heard a lot about hakim aalim.please let me know if its worth visiting them and which particular stylist there .or should i try someone else.please help.

Visited mirrors in UB city for a haircut. It was my first time there. A stylist named nikhil gave me a cut I am very happy with. He was patient and precise while giving me a long bob. Based on my experience there, I would recommend him to someone who is willing to try something new out.

I hv been going to Martina wu recently since a lot of blogs reviews rated her as the best in delhi and boy she is a genius. She has given me a brilliant cut & color. Just the she is super busy esp during the weekends so getting an appointment is a task.

Abdul is great at his work. He gave me a very nice cut. I don’t prefer setting my hair after a cut.. Unless there’s any occasion to do so. So despite not getting my hair set, it looked great and the falls were quite visible. Neither does he presume to be busy, nor is in a hurry. So would recommend him to anyone. The only downfall is that the salon charges exorbitantly. Wish he would start his own salon so that we can avoid the unnecessary tax and brand value. Cz he himself is a brand now.

Please let me know how much u paid for the hair cut at Hakim’s Aalim.. and that too from Abdul?

Liked the way abdul did my haircut.. was really apprehensive before because I don’t trust a lot of hairstylists with my hair, but he really did a fab job :)
@Apeksha,a haircut there would cost you around 1200.

I decided to try Abdul based on the many recommendations on this site but was very disappointed. Not only did he shorten my hair a lot more than I had asked him to, he didn’t even layer them properly. I will now have to wait a long time before my hair can grow enough so that I can get it fixed by my usual stylist in Delhi!

Please recommend which parlour is best… in this service.

Sudha April 14, 2016 at 4:43 pm

I went to Ali for my haircut at Bounce – but wasn’t impressed at all!!
I have thin limp hair and I ended up tying my hair in a thin(ner) pony after his cut..I had left it to him completely to decide what will go best with my kind of hair and just wanted a different look that is manageable without styling :)
And a pony was what I ended up with and have now again garnered enough courage to try another hair stylist with same expectations!

Preeti Suri May 28, 2015 at 3:14 am

Thanks shereen. I went to Martina Wu Salon yesterday and got a brilliant haircut. Had been to Abdul on everybody’s recommendation 6 months ago and my personal opinion is that Martina Wu is way better and experienced with understanding hair types and face to go best with it. Try her out!

Hi Avantika,

Thank you for informing about Abdul. I had my hair styled by him today @ Hakim Ali Salon, Near HOSMAT hospital, Bangalore. Loved my new hairstyle. . He is very skilled and patient. Like most of you said, he described, how its going to look after the haircut… i definitely liked Abdul and would recommend as a good choice as a hairdresser for anyone in Bangalore….

I visited Bounce in Bangalore, indranagar today after reading reviews of Ali on this thread. Thanks to all who recommended him! He’s fantastic and I loved what he did with my hair :) Followed whatever i had in mind and didn’t mess up. Try him. He said he’s always at the indrangr branch these days

Ali @ bounce salon Indiranagar is the best one can have for the makeovers ,person who travels country’s for the training all time and represent India at international competitions and create looks from nature, when i saw his work pics recently at Paris its just speechless he is just not a stylist but an international artist.

Thanks to each one of u who suggested Ali’s name (bounce indiraagar) Post my relocation from Delhi to blore I was skeptical trying any new haircut in a city which has taste so unlike me. So this time I made sure to do some research n finally made my mind to visit bounce(of course coz of gr8 reviews of Ali)
He is very professional. Knows his job well. Patiently listens to the specifications n most importantly no unwanted blah blah to use this product or that. He understood what I wanted n gave me a very nice haircut which suited me
Would surely recommend his name

P.S:The hair cut cost exorbitant though (~ Rs 1800) for shoulder length hair

In Delhi, it’s Nancy of Sunflower Salon in Khan Market is superb with short hair and in Bangalore Rita of Leong Salon at Commercial Street are the two women that knows the craft. Try it out! Thnx!

Hi, After reading the reviews here I had visited Abdul(works in Hakim Aleem) twice in March-2015. He did a decent job first time. After that I visited him again in Oct-2015 and he screwed up!!! I thought that may be some of the days you are not at your very best so after bit of disappointment I left the parlour. After waiting for my hair to grow again, I thought of giving Abdul a second chance in June-2016(yes couple of days back).. To my surprise, his skill have deteriorated so much!!!…He did a very bad job. I figured out that he just knows a couple of haircut which he tries to fit in irrespective of what you say. He spoilt my whole day. I felt so low and disappointed and swore never to visit him again. No point in fighting since that would not have undone anything. I feel he has got stagnated with no improvement in his creativity and skills.

I went to Ali @Bounce Indranagar for hair color and cut after seeing him do an amazing job for my sister. I am extremely happy with his work! Excellently skilled. Listens to your queries patiently and gives best advice. Since it was my first time coloring, i was very skeptical about it and so completely left on him to decide and i am so so glad i did that.

I would suggest if you are a new to hair coloring part especially, you can trust him and let him do an amazing job. Definitely now, will keep following Ali for my hair cuts and color!
