This Chennai Salon Brand Is Bringing A Super Relaxed Experience For Salon Goers On 12th Main

Amrita posted on 04 April


Chennai-born Vurve is Indiranagar’s latest salon to make an appearance on 12th Main. At 2,700 sq feet, Vurve will take care of all your cut, colour, facial, mani-pedi and other needs in a lounge-like setting. Plus, they specialise in Kerastase Hair Rituals.

Time To R&R

We love salons that offer more than just a space to come for a haircut or a manicure. Going to a salon should be synonymous with relaxation, leaving all your worries out and Indiranagar’s new salon Vurve makes you feel just like that. As you enter you might think you are entering a restobar rather than a salon because here the walls are of exposed bricks, the colour schemes are bright and cheerful with red and yellow doors, wooden floors and statement origami-esque lights which will want to make you do your Insta stories instantly. Plus, a large part of the salon’s glass windows overlooks Indiranagar’s gorgeous rain trees.

At the reception area, you can browse through their range of brands for skin {ask their in-house skin expert for a free consultation}, hair and various other targetted treatment issues. We spotted French skincare brand Decleor {for face and body with a base of essential oils}, Spanish scientific skincare brand Skeyndor and a quirkily packaged men’s brand called Depot with grooming, skin and hair care products. A special room is sectioned off for relaxing Kerastase hair rituals. The back of the salon has three rooms for spa treatments, and another section is solely dedicated to manicures and pedicures.

Colour Scheme

I decided to go for a quick balayage {without any pre lightening} from a range fo L’Oreal salon hair colour called Magilift. The tone I chose was a warm brown with hints of red. Not too edgy but will shine through in sunlight, promised my stylist. A quick scalp test was done for me to diagnose the health of my hair. I had parts of hair that were thinning, and some major sensitive areas {because of too much stress it seems} in my scalp, but all together my scalp was declared reasonably healthy. To make sure the colour wouldn’t damage my hair much, a product called Strong Bond {they have a complimentary offer running on this currently} was mixed in the colour before it was applied to my hair.

After waiting for about half an hour, the foils were removed and my hair was washed with Kerastase resistance shampoo, usually applied for damaged and dried hair and followed it up with a Kerastase Reflection conditioner that protects colour apparently. Then my hair was further given a dose of hydration was a serum and booster {also from L’Oreal} was mixed together and applied to my wet hair. Hair washed, it was time for a quick trim and then finally a sleek and shiny straight blow dry or curly one, whatever you want.

Take It Easy

The hair colouring process didn’t take very long but you will have to wait around for some time, so get yourself a quick pedi while you are waiting or read on your Kindle. The staff at the salon were friendly and they took all my suggestions and reservations into account and made sure my salon experience was pleasant and super relaxing.

Price: INR 3,000 upwards for colouring. The salon is also running a 25 per cent off on all services as part of its launch offer.
