Nothing has changed when we talk about Bhang, the beauty parlour my mum and I have been visiting for over 10 years now. The only sign that grabs your attention is Ling’s Pavilion right next door, and an old wooden signboard painted yellow with ‘BHANG’ written in bad cursive and red font.
But, we excuse them, for everything else within has been treasured for a long while. George Bhang manages the souvenir shop in front (his father was a famous shoemaker who made shoes for the cast of Gandhi) while his wife Glynda is famous for her hair snipping skills.
Enter the salon and you’re greeted by Glynda and her team, where they take the time to get to know you personally and cut your hair (INR 300), threading (INR 50), hair wash and blow-dry (INR 600), waxing (INR 500), bridal makeup (INR 4,000), and others.
