A good hairstyle with a splash of colour can quickly transform one’s personality. And I was the lucky one who recently received a great makeover from one of the popular beauty brands. Isn’t it nice to have makeover when you are really bored of wearing the same look every day? I was invited for an experiential at Kut & Make salon and to review Streax Professional Colour Treatment. I was all set to pamper my hair and give it a new lease of life.

The quaint salon situated at one of the prominent areas of Byculla attracts the right type of clients making this spot an instant crowd-puller. Upon my arrival, I was warmly greeted by Ms. Agnes Chen, the technical head of Streax Professional and Shirin Merchant, the owner of Kut & Make Salon.


The salon and the staff

The 900 sq. ft. sprawling salon has 7 hair care stations and 2 manicure-pedicure stations. The upper floor also houses 5 premium treatment rooms. It offers various treatments such as bridal beauty services, skin care, make-up and exclusive spa and nail services. The salon has well-trained and very presentable staff. Their employees receive constant training through various hair and skincare brands on an ongoing basis so that they can handle clients efficiently. When I arrived at the salon, the place was abuzz with activities and I witnessed every employee servicing each of their clients with extreme care.


The charming interiors

The interiors of Kut & Make Salon are very distinct and exude a comfortable vibe. The salon makes optimum usage of wood as a prime decor element. Shirin wanted to give a contemporary yet rustic appearance to it. The carefully chosen colour palette of earthy tones like greys, browns, beige and warm shade of white create a warm and welcoming aura. From textured white walls, overhead cabinets to floating shelves make this 900 sq. ft. salon extremely functional.

The flooring is made of using wooden vinyl sheets. The golden framed huge mirrors and natural-coloured ergonomically shaped chairs add richness and synchronize well with the overall interiors of the salon.


And the magic happens...

Agnes, the technical head of Streax Professional briefly explained to me about the hair colouring services. She quickly examined my hair as I was about to get a haircut and hair colour. Since I have a broad forehead, she suggested that I go for a layered cut with side fringes. In a matter of few minutes, my long, lack-lustre hair was replaced with the voluminous layered haircut. The side fringes in front quickly added volume to my hair and it made my hair look thick at the back.

Since I have a dusky complexion, Agnes opted for Flame Red colour for my hair. The procedure consisted of two major steps – pre-lightening and hair colouring. Ashish Limbachya, the techincal expert from Streax Professional was also there to assist Agnes during the entire process.

Using the balayage technique, she bleached my hair with the help of Streax Professional Ultralights Powder and Streax Professional 30 Volume Developer. She mixed the hair colour and volume developer in a certain ratio and applied to my hair. It was kept for 20 minutes after which my hair was thoroughly washed. This bleaching process resulted in soft, natural-looking, sun-kissed highlights.

The next step was to colour my hair by using Streax professional Argan Secrets Hair colourant 0.6 Flame Red. She blended this hair colourant cream with Streax Professional 20 Volume Developer. With utmost ease and efficiency, she sectioned my hair and started applying colour mixture on my hair. While my locks were wrapped in foils, I was told to relax for 30 minutes. After the stipulated time, my hair was rinsed out using normal tap water.  

Following this, my hair was blow dried. Before styling my hair, Agnes applied Streax Professional Hold & Play Strong Mousse. With the help of Streax Professional Hold and Play Hold Spray, she tonged my hair in sections and used Streax Professional Hold and Play Shine Spray for instant shine. The whole styling procedure resulted into Instagram-worthy spiralled waves.

When I saw myself in the mirror, I saw a ‘new me’ with those vibrant, shiny locks dipped in flame red colour. The makeover by Streax Professional gave me the best of both worlds as I realized that I could actually flaunt my blonde highlights even if the colour starts fading. Secondly, my highlighted hair by Streax Professional caused stunning results, and turned my lack-lustre locks into shiny, voluminous, beautiful mane.

It was a magical makeover and I would absolutely recommend it to every woman who wants her hair coloured.
