Ten-Second Takeaway

The legendary hair and beauty salon, Silhouette, has moved to Claridges after years of having served patrons at Oberoi. We went to check out how the place is keeping up, and got a hair treatment instead!

A Novel Idea

Silhouette has been around for so long that at least three generations of people have been visiting them for a quick cut, colour and pruning {as well as everything else}.

We decided to check out their new set-up and were surprised to find them operating out of five guest rooms; but they were all bustling with clients. We were a little apprehensive as we scrutinised this new establishment, but were happy to find them flourishing in these rooms, with spic and span hair and beauty rooms for both men and women.

Hair And Care

kas Silhouette Moved To Claridges And We Checked It Out

Aching for a massage and hair spa, I settled down on a plush chair with a view of the poolside, as a nourishing and hydrating hair pack by Kerastase was massaged onto my scalp. And so, the treatment began with a pack, head and neck massage, ending with a steam, mist and rinse. We would wholeheartedly recommend their hair spas for dry, sensitive and damaged hair.

What we have really loved about Silhouette through the years, though, is their attention to hygiene and cleanliness. They clean up cut hair constantly and meticulously wash their hands while working, and it’s no different here.

Cleaning Up Good

The clientele is slightly middle-aged and more, and their services are also expensive, but they take a lot of care, and keep hovering around you to keep you the most comfortable. We also got a slight trim, and would recommend you go for quick hair cut to Mavis {who has been around for 40 years!}. They are soon moving into a much larger space at Claridges itself {in the next couple of months, we hear}.

Would we go back for a neck massage that smoothens out our work knots? Hell, yes! Can we afford it every couple of months? Maybe. Will we miss a chance to check out their new spot? Absolutely not.
