Sleeping in a little late every once in a while.An excessively long shower after a difficult day.Taking half an hour off work to sneak in a pedicure.Switching off your work phone on a Saturday to finally finish that book. Buying that overpriced sweater because you love how it feels on your skin.
We’re all working in a culture that encourages us to do more- and do it faster and better than everyone else. The last week I feel like I’ve been drowning in job lists and projects that need finishing, essays that need editing, and meetings that need extensive preparation. At the end of a week of truly taxing days, I like to take some time off, and just do nothing. Spend excessive amounts of time on pinterest, give myself a pedicure, listen to some music, and just be- not having to use my brain for anything except wonder whether I need a refill of tea. People have stopped taking out time to take care of themselves- to allow themselves a little luxury from time to time. Luckily, we can always get a little help in the department of pampering and preening from the experts in the field : Jean-Claude Biguine
The luxury salon chain opened the doors to its new branch in Indiranagar a month ago, and was kind enough to invite me, along with the lovely ladies in my life, to an evening of luxurious pampering.
I got some serious VIP treatment with the Kerastase Chronologiste hair spa- the only Kerastase treatment to work on your hair and your scalp. The treatment consisted of a hair consultation, a hair wash (while sitting on a massage chair. Yes, you read right- a hair wash on a massage chair) , application of the hair product, a hair steam and then finally a blow dry.
What makes the entire treatment truly luxuriant is the product itself- which contains the same nutrients and lipids as caviar (because nothing is more decadent than fish eggs).
My usual hair care routine consists of eating healthy,washing every two days and oiling it every once in while (much to the dismay of my hairstylist FYI) , and I don’t get hair spas and hair treatments too often ( read never). I visited the salon on Friday, and two hair washes and multiple gym sessions later, my hair is still ridiculously soft . Like cantstoptouchingit soft. I think Jean-Claude Biguine may have just converted me. The treatment is a tad heavy on the pockets, but they have a wide range of options to choose from, which have different price points, so you can take your pick.
The salon is located on 100 ft road, right next to the Flying Machine store, so keep an eye out for it the next time you’re in Indiranagar and in need of some pampering.
