A nifty little nail and blowout bar, smack in the CBD, Get Gorgeous is your go-to salon for quick hair fixes, nail magic and a little me time. Oh don’t we know the woes of weird hair days (mostly everyday) and chipped polish. And if you haven’t had the time to make those elaborate parlour visits very regularly, just head on to Get Gorgeous instead. Started by Maude Abraham, a sassy and chic lady herself, this Lavelle Road blowout bar keeps it simple — white and purple walls with Hello Gorgeous painted on them, hair wash and mani-pedi stations, nail art counters and of course, mirrored space so you can see yourself transform.
We hopped in needing some damage control for a wedding and phew, aren’t we thankful. Henry took over dealing with the knotty and messy tresses after a long day of work and a hair wash came first. Shampoo, conditioning and a head massage later, it was time for the blow dry. You can choose how you want your hair done, but being a blowout bar, we wanted to test the speed of just that. They passed with flying colours getting this writer’s Medusa-esque lock into an inward curl hairdo. You can also choose curls, waves and more elaborate dos, though they will take longer. Next came the mani-pedi which was quick, competent and left our hands and feet ready to take on the world. If you’re looking for some nail art, they’ve got you covered – from bling and glitter to intricate details and funky patterns. They use mostly gel polish (OPI lacquer FTW!), so you don’t need to worry about your nails for about two weeks. Those who chew their nails, fear not! Nail extensions will save the day, and then you can get overlay and UV light devices also means you don’t have to drive or handle your wallet like you’re dismantling a bomb. They really do go all out to make things easy for you.
And the best part of this entire experience? The prices. Where else can you get a manicure for just INR 300 or a hair wash and dry for INR 500 (this is just the regular blow dry, not a style).
