I was planning to get something different done to my hair since a long time. By different, I wanted to get them colored with something bold and bright! I had been following quite a few salons and wanted to try each one of them! But then, I got to know about F Salon. I had heard pretty good things about them so I decided to get my hair done there! So today I am going to share my experience with you all!
About The Salon!
F Salon has only two branches, one in GK II and the other one Rajouri Garden. The salon I believe is an extension of FTV and as stated by Michel Adam Lisowski, Founder FTV “It’s time for India to experience the choicest of luxuries in the world.” You know you’re in for the absolute best when Fashion TV is at the helm of affairs! The salon interior is all themed around FTV and was pretty spacious! There was a pretty good lounge or waiting area and good number of work-stations! I loved the ambiance and the music. It kept me entertained all the time!
Very soon the hair stylist Nadeem arrived and had a look at my hair. We discussed as to what kind of color I would like to go for and he suggested me a few options. Later we agreed to one and that was Copper Gold Blonde Ombre! I was excited but equally worried as I didn’t know how it will turn out or how will I look in that hair color! Anyway, he first went with the hair cut. Before the cut, my hair was shampooed. At that time conditioner wasn’t applied. For hair cut, I got some layers, which I always love. Since I am planning to grow my hair back to long, very little length was sacrificed and I was pretty happy with that! After the hair cut my hair looked instantly better and voluminous! And that’s why you need to get a hair cut frequently! 😀
Here came the part that I was excited about but equally nervous too! My hair was divided in three section and tied up in a ponytail. The three parts were the bottom section, middle section and the top section. (See picture and the video attached below). Now all these sections were colored separately starting with the bottom one. The color was applied and thoroughly massaged and spread nicely to ensure the ombre effect and that no hair is left from getting colored. Once the bottom section was done, he then did the middle and then lastly the top. Each of these sections was wrapped in an aluminum foil after the color was done. The aluminum foil actually prevents the heat from coming out and that heat kind of works in developing the color better. It also prevents smearing of color where we don’t want it to be! 🙂
Now I had to wait for around 15 minutes for the color to develop. The hair stylist Nadeem checked the color a couple of times to see if it was done or if it was okay with me. Once the color was done, it was first rinsed in a bowl, section by section. After that was done I was sent for the hair wash. Now this time they shampooed and conditioned my hair.
This part was like a “Moment of Truth” for me! At first, the hair color looked weird and dull to me on my wet hair and I was really praying for it to turn out good after they were dry! I was patiently watching while Nadeem was blow-drying my hair. After the hair was dry I saw the difference! The color looked really bright and beautiful! Now, they had to be styled and Nadeem spared no effort doing that. He gave my hair such amazingly beautiful curls that I could never imagine! It was kind of a retro look and they looked gorgeous! The best part was my hair color that made the curls look really beautiful. In other words, my hair color kind of enhanced the beauty of those curls! I just loved the entire look and clicked so many pictures that you will see below. The curls stayed for three more days, yes, not that strong, but fairly well. I took my sweet time to get adjusted with this new look as I kept forgetting that I have changed! 😀 Every time I looked into the mirror, it was a reminder “Oh I have a new look”! 😀 I am so loving this look that I can’t wait but to go again and get something different from F Salon! But for that, I think I will wait for a couple of months at least! 🙂 The F Salon waas really kind enough to give me a complimentary nail service as well.
