I desperately needed to restyle my hair while trying to keep the length as much as I can… My friend Dina, who is a member at Al Corniche Club, suggested I drop by Toni & Guy there to have my haircut 😉
I called them up and booked an appointment with a “Top Stylist” – if you are not familiar with Toni & Guy, they are a worldwide hairdresser brand with different level stylist that you can choose from. Now I have tried them abroad and loved their services/products, I was hoping for the best in the branch here in Kuwait!
So I went yesterday right after work, the Salon is divided into two sections, Men on the right and Women on the left. The receptionist asked for my name and took me in to prepare me for the haircut.
It is exactly like what they do in London/UK. I was given the robe to wear, asked if I wanted anything to drink, and then guided to my seat. The stylist would come in, discuss the haircut, likes/dislikes, give suggestions, show pictures, and LISTENS! Then they take you for hairwash to get ready for your haircut.
My stylist was Alison, and she is AWESOME! Very down to earth! She asked me what product I use at home for my hair, my daily routine for haircare, how many times I wash it…. etc! It was a give-and-take kinda chitchat! I told her I never buy over-the-counter shampoos for my hair… I always get mine from Kerastase, Kiehl’s, and Fekkai mostly. She then ask what kind and for what type of hair… she really give attention! I liked that, cuz she recommended I stop using the Kerastase Clairfying shampoo, and get the one from the same brand for oily roots! She was really professional!
While styling my hair she asked how do I dry it! Well, I usually just blowdary it (with air only) cuz its kinda straight as it is, but sometimes I would use products such as Beach Creme for a carefree look! She even showed me the correct way to comb my hair before styling it with the hairdryer, and how to backbrush gently when I need volume!
I think I finally found a new -trust worthy- hairstylist for me in Kuwait! I am so satisfied and happy with the service, the haircut/restyle, and the place itself 😉 – Highly Recommended!
