YLG is the latest address with a range of hair spa treatments
I am a hairstylist’s nightmare. Nine out of ten hairstylists usually tell me how scanty and frizzy my hair is, and often roll their eyes when I ask them to bring in more bounce. So, I didn’t have to be asked twice to check out the newly opened YLG (You Look Great) at Nungambakkam. They have opened four branches simultaneously in the city (in Anna Nagar, Raja Annamalaipuram, Besant Nagar). YLG is already well established in Bangalore with as many as 25 branches in the city.
It makes a good first impression with sleek and spacious interiors, efficient certified stylists, excellent service and their various hair spa treatments. Though they have a comprehensive menu consisting of facials, manicures, pedicures, wraps, body massages, bridal makeup etc., we are told their hair spas are a standout feature.
Since I come with an appointment, I am ushered in immediately. My stylist takes one look at me and gives me that all-knowing smile. He brings in a scalp and root meter, pronounces that my scalp and roots need instant treatment and suggests an express Kerastase (they use only Kerastase and L’oreal brands)hair spa massage that takes half an hour. He displays an array of tiny bottles of Kerastase shampoos, serums, conditioners, mousse. Each application is neatly explained and applied with expert precision. I loved the subsequent sleep-inducing forehead and shoulder massage. Thirty minutes later, my usually frizzy unmanageable hair looks shiny, voluminous and bouncy. I am advised to make this a monthly ritual for a long lasting effect.
If you love experimenting with hairstyles, they have on offer 150+ different hairstyles. These can be explored virtually before choosing the style that suits you best. YLG also offers chocolate wax treatments and Brazilian wax treatment, luxury pedicure and manicure and European light therapy facials.
They have a beauty cash card offer worth Rs 10,000 where you can avail of Rs 22,000 worth services for five months. Pay Rs 30,000 and avail of services worth Rs 65,000 for a year. Details: 42157145
