Monsoons can be a real dampner for most of us as far as our hair is concerned. While my hair grows much faster during monsoons, the humidity squeezes the life out of it and leaves it lacking volume and bounce along with losing shape due to the speed at which it grows. Hence a haircut is imperative for me in between the monsoon season every year. While I have tried different salons every year for my monsoon cut, no one ever gave me the desired effect that I wanted - a hair cut that would look voluminous and not get weighed down by the humidity, and also be a style that would not lose shape too soon after the cut.
This year when the acclaimed hair experts at JUICE claimed to have come up with monsoon specific haircuts, I was skeptical as well as excited to try a look since I had more or less come to a conclusion that monsoon specific hair cuts were a myth. Nevertheless I decided to make a one last attempt and thankfully it isn't going to be my last attempt because I was given the most wonderful haircut I have had in years! Here is my experience for you guys :-) (and I also have a contest for you post the experiential!)
This was how I walked into the salon!
The process started with a hair wash as my hair was to be cut when wet.
And then started the chopping :)
I was given the haircut by the Art Director of the Vashi salon. She decided to give me a multiple layered cut at the back to give me volume with softer layers at the front. For the crown we decided to go for a side swept fringe but the best part of this fringe was that we decided to change the direction of my hair parting and that was what made the most difference to this haircut.
Done Dana Done Done! How fabulous does this look!!
You can actually see the voluminous look that this haircut has and how much changing the side of the fringe also has made a difference!
It's been a few weeks since I got the haircut and it is totally a fuss free haircut to style. You can just towel dry your hair and comb your hair and let it air dry on its own and it still looks perfect. You don't need to use any heat devices to style your hair. This has been one of the most fuss free haircuts I have gotten done in my life and I know I am going to go back to JUICE again in the future for my haircuts. Haircuts with an Art Director start from INR 900/- onwards.
Thank you JUICE for proving to me that monsoon haircuts are not a myth ;-) BTW, they have styles for men too, so all the men out there reading this post, do try out their services.
