Hello all,

How have you been? I know its little late that I put in something interesting for you but with this feature, I am sure to take you through a ride.

While rushing in and out, travelling and attending back to back meetings or after parties for my blog & brand, it is difficult to maintain fresh & sophisticated look.

I did find my destination to all the above for a quick fix.

JEAN – CLAUDE BIGUINE – Koramangala Bangalore

I met Shubhangani & my favorite hair and make up artist from JCB team Bangalore Andy.

Before starting my luxe day in JCB, I noticed a lovely couple in the salon. They were there for a short trial for their dream day. I was keen to interview them, but as we were running short of time,I couldn’t. Somehow we spared them for quick reviews & pictures of the make over for their big day!

Take a look

“The Couple” seems they fancy each other so much.

The couple was extremely happy & was blushing after the make over. I am looking forward for their wedding 🙂 About the reviews ? They give a THUMPS UP! Off course the team has to be credited here.

The differentiating factors for JCB apart from their services are –

– Firstly. Each member of the team at JCB is very welcoming, warm & friendly. Wearing a sweet subtle smile!

– Secondly, the ambiance is peaceful and non chaotic.

Inspired by the power of nature, Bio Sculpture spa products promote and maintain natural beauty with a blend of carefully selected plant extracts with highly effective vitamins and antioxidants. Using the natural tendency of plants and fruits to retain moisture, Bio Sculpture’s products are ideal for delivering essential nourishment for exceptional skin care.

The Bio Sculpture spa range includes products such as an exfoliating Potpourri Salt Scrub, for weary hands and feet and a moisturizing Hand & Body Butter, amongst others.

With the Classic manicures and pedicures that will soon be available at Jean-Claude Biguine, patrons are a mere five steps away from gorgeous hands and feet:

Keeping in mind Jean-Claude Biguine’s international hygiene standards, the Bio Sculpture manicures and pedicures will be performed on customers only using disposable tools.

This service is exclusively available at the Jean Claude Biguine salons in Bengaluru & Mumbai.

After the treatment for my frisky feet, Andy suggested me to take a quick touch up for the formal party which proceeded.

This included a hair cut as well. Wow! Really! Take a look at my new look…

To start with Andy applied a hair spray from Sebastian to smoothen & soften the frizzy hair after wash.

I was skeptical for the hair cut as I have very slow growth. haha..

 

So, this was how I looked before the make over. PS - I had done my eyes with Kajal.

BEFORE – Frizzy hair & kajal. Sigh..

 

Wow! after a very quick scissor session, I was here with my new hair- style! Still wondering if it was short??
