This Vittal Mallya Salon Pampers You With French Wine, Stylish Hair-Dos And Glamorous Nails

Aakanksha posted on 08 January


The newest kid on the nail and salon bar block, Blown! is perfect to get yourself looking red-carpet ready. And it’s even got a swish wine bar to add to the pampering session!


Blown Away

Adding to the list of nail-hair bar concepts across the city, Blown! is the latest in the skyline. Set on the popular Vittal Mallya Road, there’s no real dearth of hair salons in the area. In fact, you can see at least three right from the main door of Blown!. But we’re here to add our favourite fact about this place into the mix. Conceptualised by Menaka Bhandary, the salon is adding wine onto their indulgence menu. Imagine getting a blow dry, a classic manicure and pedicure, nail art, while all along sipping on some fine wine.

You can pick from French wines such as Terres D͛ Aratagnan, Audelle, Trebelle or perhaps ice wine {the Canadian frozen grape wine that is plucked on the coldest night of the winter} is more your thing. They even have earthy flavours and we’re eying the Kalala Organic Merlot or the Paradise Ranch Riesling. Oh, you want organic wine? That is on the menu too, like the Summerhill brand. If you head here at 10am and are a bit sheepish to guzzle wine {why though?}, they do offer tea and coffee. They even have a few nibbles — a vegetarian platter with olives, cheese and more, and meat options that have a few cold cuts, olives and dried fruits. 

Nailed It

When it comes to salon services, we like that they have the basic — like washes and styling, to the more extensive Keratin Smoothening treatment to repair your long locks. And in the hair department, don’t think that a blow-dry means just a quick wash and dry. There are many options from No Fuss which makes you look natural but it’s styled, then there’s Get Ziggy With It will see you crimping your hair. Easy Breezy is all about soft curls and of course, many versions of the straight hair look. Up-dos are high on the importance list here, as they’d love for you to come in before work, get your hair done, and then slay it straight from the salon to the boardroom, and then, bar! Cuts and colours are also available.

This writer got herself a blow dry and we were in for a real treat. It started off with a hair assessment and then a wonderful, long hair wash that even included a massage. What was lovely was that is was not rushed at all, and the massage wasn’t just to help the conditioner soak in. It was a legit head massage, and I fell asleep halfway, only to be gently woken up for the dry. I picked the No Fuss and was very pleased that my hair looked under control {for once!}, straighter than usual, but it wasn’t poker straight and unnatural.

They are also nailing it when it comes to nails, of course. There are manicures, pedicures, cut and file options, as well as polishes of all kinds. Go on, get that long-lasting OPI polish as dazzle at this weekend’s parties! Those who fumble with makeup, Blown! will sort you out. Be it just the eyes, the lips or your full face, they have a package to suit you, night or day. No, really, there are different options for night and day!
