Review, Price of Lakme Salon Delhi for Hair Colouring and Hair Cut

By Contributor: Monica

As part of TeamVNA when Anshita asked me whether I would like to get a hair makeover done at a Lakme salon of my choice in Delhi, I was like yayyyyyyyy! Yes please, yes please. She is such a sweetheart I tell you…. lots of pucchiiis to her. I went to Lakme Salon, Vasant Vihar to get one of the show stopping hairstyles from their new Hairisfashion collection. The salon is quite decent in size and the staff there is very courteous and friendly. While I was there, one of their client’s had her birthday that day and they were kind enough to get her a bouquet and wish her. I liked this gesture of salon staff.

Once I reached there, I was introduced to their manager – Gurpreet, who, like rest of the staff is a smiling young woman. She settled me down and introduced me to my hairstylist of the day- Vaid. Vaid has been working with Lakme for last 4 years and as per Gurpreet, he is one of their star hairstylists.

Vaid showed me their showstopper catalogue (check the catalogue HERE) and quickly we decided to give me gold highlights. You don’t have to copy the exact style from the Show Stopper Collection, they customize it for you depending on your taste, requirements, hair texture, length, etc. I already had highlights in my hair but they were very subtle brown highlights which as per Vaid were not complementing my fair complexion much so he suggested I should get golden highlights. He even suggested than in order to highlights to come out well and blend in my hair colour, I should also get my base colour redone. I have never got my entire hair coloured before and I was bit apprehensive too but he assured me that the end result would be much better than my current highlights so I gave in.

By the way, Lakme salons use Schwarzkopf hair colours only. Vaid started highlighting my hair using Schwarzkorpf permanent hair colours range named “Gora Royal” and carefully packed them in silver foils. Then after the highlights, he coloured the remaining base hair in shade “Absolute Brown” which was a combination of 4.60 and 5.60 numbers in same Schwarzkopf permanent hair colour range.

The highlight colour used was ammonia free but this base colour which he used, was not ammonia free. I asked him about the side-effects of ammonia on hair and he said there are not much side-effects except over-drying. But this base colour was causing me itching wherever it touched my skin eg. ears and neck, so I guess ammonia is not good for skin. However, Vaid and his assistant were quite pro in colouring and I had minimum discomfort while getting my hair done.

The colour was kept for 15-20 mins and then I was taken for hair-wash. Now this was the most tiring part. The entire washing and removing foils was a task in itself and took almost half an hour. Here also, Schwarzkopf colour save shampoo and conditioner were used.

After washing came the drying and styling part. While Vaid was drying my hair, I could see the golden highlights and was quite ecstatic J this look was different from my earlier style. For the haircut, Vaid gave me some great front bangs and bit of layers in the length as I had strictly instructed him not to reduce the length.

Once my makeover was done, I was getting complements from the entire salon staff especially for the way the highlights and base were blending in.

My hair till now, have an awesome shine in them and look super-lusturous. I loved loved loved the end result, much better than my earlier tryst with loreal majirel. Majirel range has the colour but they tend to look dry and also don’t have the shine which these Schwarzkopf colours have. Personally, i found Schwarzkopf better and would any day recommend it.

I would recommend Lakme, Vasant Vihar to everyone living in south delhi. Vaid is actually quite good in his work and best part is that he listens to all your needs patiently and is not pushy about things. As far as I am concerned, I am in love with my new hair look these days. Infact my boyfriend, who is very skeptical towards hair colours, etc thinking they damage the hair, complemented me this time, saying my hair look shinier than before. The salon and staff get a big Thumbs Up from me.

  2. Hey Monica, loving your hair makeover! The subtle highlights and curls at ends of hair looks so glamorous and picture perfect!
    I think #HairIsFashion as just a simple change in hairstyle or hair color can drastically change the way a person looks! I used to have a simple shaped cut which never looked very alluring but was a safe option during my school days. Then one fine day, the parlour woman suggested that I go for a newer style. On an impulse, I went through with it and till date I think it was one of the best (fashion) decision I ever made! It made me look like a hundred times better and prettier than my previous hairdo. This made my confidence soar which helped me a lot all though the rest of my school life! And this was years before hair coloring and streaks came to the picture! Now that I am to embark on a new journey (going to start working soon) I again need a good confidence boost to cope up with changes in my life and a hair styling session would do just that!!
    Completed all the steps for the giveaway!!!
    Fingers crossed!

  8. Hair is fashion because I can change my overall appearance just by changing my hair color or style.

    I need to look according to the occasion, for a puja I want my hair to be nicely tied or sleek straight.
    For a party, I want messy curls with red highlights.

    I look fashionable everytime just because I love playing and experimenting with my hair.
    Done all steps

  9. Hi! You hair looks fab <3 In love with 'em! :D
    And, thankyou so much for giving this amazing opportunity To provide a chance for a tremendous hair makeover just like yours *__*

    Hair is Fashion! Indeed :D I bet it is! :)
    Your haircut and hairstyle is an extension of yourself,
    it can project an image to the world that can say a lot about you,
    who you are and what you're about. Your hairstyle can definitely affect
    the way people perceive you, even subconsciously.

    It can create opportunities for you or perhaps even take them away.
    It can influence the way you feel about yourself, it can build up your confidence or destroy it. That's right; a bad hair day can really mean a
    bad day. I know that it's a shame that our society judges so unfairly,
    simply based on our physical appearance. But its part of human nature
    and everybody does it, regardless to whether they care to admit it or not.
    Hairs are one of the most important parts of a human body which to an extent reflects the personality of the individual. However, most people tend to neglect their hair and instead concentrate on their face and physique. They feel that any hairstyle is fine as long as it does not make them look terrible. They might be right that most hairstyles might work out for them. But they do not realize that they are missing out the opportunity to enhance their beauty and personality by not selecting the appropriate hairstyle.

    Hair is Fashion for me because of the following reasons :) –

    1. Enhances personality and beauty
    2. Matches the face cut
    3. Enhances the lifestyle
    4. Makes feel young & trendy
    5. Makes me fall in love with myself
    6. makes me look different and beautiful

    I hope you like my answer :)
    Wish to win <3
    I'm following you on all social websites! :D

  10. Aww Monica, you are looking so pretty. Your curls are looking loving. You are a live example that why #HairIsFashion . A slight change in your hair and a complete new and amazing look. Talking about #HairIsFashion without mentioning our VNA diva Anshita is not possible. She is an apt example that why we should dare to experiment with our hair. I love her hair, I loved when she opted for ombre hair, I loved when she used pink hair chalk and I am loving her current hair makeover (yes, I am stalking you on all social networking sites). It will sound bit weird but you are the one who motivated me to increase the length of my hair.
    Well now coming to the justification of the statement part, I am sure all the pretty ladies are very well aware with the fact that #HairIsFashion . Even a simple hair cut can transform you from a geek to a head turner. Luckily we have enough options to experiment with hairs. No look is complete without a suitable hairstyle. Imagine you are all dressed up from head to toe in an amazing outfit, accessories but an inappropriate hair style can ruin the whole efforts. A hair cut can make you look much younger and pretty. A different hair style can shower you with so many compliments. In case you don’t want to make any effort, go for a messy bun and become the attraction. We can do infinite things with our hair. Hair colouring is another option. If you dont want to go through the process of bleaching and all that but still want to see your hair coloured, opt for hair chalks. They are an easy and hassle free way to colour your hair and make your girl friends jealous. Adding few colourful streaks can make you look like a rockstar. In case you are an epitome of laziness and dont want to put any effort in your hair, simply use few colourful hair pins. Adding some pretty colourful pins in your daily hairstyle can make you pretty. Curl, Straight, Rebonding, Colouring, Braiding, do whatever you want to do with your hair, but always remember to pamper them otherwise they will look lifeless and brittle. Keep experiment with hair because #HairIsFashion .

  11. #HairisFashion and I strongly believe in it.. Like our makeup , confidence and attitude hair also plays an important role in creation of magnificent personality.. One can easily make a braid to sport an ethnic look , Or a nice hair style to sport a casual chick look… In case you are wearing a Jimmy choo and armani and Gucci but ignored your hair …that’s biggest fashion blunder you have made.. Hence with clothes and accessories hair also plays and equivalent role ..and yes #HairisFashion as now a days rebounding and smoothening types procedure not only makes one look beautiful and saves time to get ready in today’s busy life …it also makes one ageless in case hair style is made considering face cut and physic . it can be used as an escape from time investment in daily look building by one time investment in to a look that compliment you all the time and with just a twist volla a new look to go with…
