This post is about my visit to the hottest hair salon in town, The WoMen Salon in Kiulap’s newest commercial hub, Setia Kenangan II.

Some of you may be wondering why would I spend good money on a hair cut when my hair is covered all day. To you I say, New Year, New Hair, New me

While this is true, I still do have a boy at home that I want to impress.

THE EXPERIENCE: Wash and Cut

The amazing Mary just adroitly doing her job.

Honestly, I was intrigued by the concept of a salon café, and I envisioned a place where I get pampered while enjoying a nice cake and top-end delicious coffee. That was exactly what I got! I was literally being spoilt from head to tummy!

That day I chose to get what I thought would be the classic wash and cut!

I was first taken to the uber-chic and hip wash station. I have never experienced a wash like this! According to Mary, the stylist assistant, there are three steps : Cleanse, massage and Condition! It may sound basic, but they took it to a whole new level!

After the shampoo cleanse, Mary gave me a soothing massage to melt the stress away. It felt like a cat, pressing its fuzzy paws into my scalp, knowing exactly where to caress. During conditioning, a warm and cozy towel placed around my head was so relaxing that I had the best 2 minute nap of my life!

As sad as I was that the pampering was over, I was excited for the new haircut to be done by one of their celebrity creative directors. I had Jobi from Taiwan, and she was a star! What was fascinating was when she lifted my hair up like a carpet to see my hairline, and assess my natural qualities in order to understand how best to work with my hair.

I know that my hair has problems, but she never made me feel negative, instead she made me appreciate the quality that I have. I ended up getting a beautiful new straight-cut shoulder length bob, that is easy to manage with my lifestyle, and really shocked my husband!

Oooops sorry. No picture of my new hairdo. But here is a picture of my ootd in front of the shop. Hehe.

For the hubbies out there, there is also a nested space up at the mezzanine, for you to just chill, or take care of the kids, while you wives enjoy their treatment. Just look at my dear son. 

THE VERDICT

This place is not just about going to get your hair done. It’s about the complete customer experience, from serving light meals to spa treatment before getting life changing hair. 

Stay tuned for part II: Where it will be exclusively on its ever-inspiring space.
