Ok, I know what you’re thinking…a post about hair cuts, really. Absolutely. Everything here is an adventure so we’re not leaving anything out.
To say the least I was a little nervous about our first venture to get or hair cuts, mostly because we had no idea where to go, but it was only a matter of time. I know I’ve mentioned this before, and will many times to come, but the network of people we had in Mumbai was great. We polled the group to find out where the best place was to get this done.
After some internet searches and review scouring we landed on Envi Salon close to the apartment. It was located about a quarter mile down the road from our place which made it a great outing for Sunday’s when we didn’t have the car.
I was really hoping that I would be able to test out the process by myself, but with the state of everyone’s hair we decided to give it a shot.
We headed out during nap time, so as not to infuriate Madelyn that we’d left her behind. Within 50ft of the gate you two were dead set on getting a Rickshaw, which i didn’t have money for. I was lucky enough that we didn’t see any on the way there or back. We did however make that a part of our second trip.
Overall the place was amazing. I was really worried when it appeared very few of them spoke english, but it was all for not. You two sat still long enough for them to cut your hair and not your ears. When it was my turn you did what any kid would do and played with all the small bottles of expensive products staged around the store for purchase. I was a nervous wreck..everything was glass, or at least I thought it was. The second time we took iPads, and also happened to meet Rich there.
Since then I’ve heard mixed reviews about hair coloring fiascoes, but since you two and a I get the most basic hair cuts on the planet I think we’ll be OK. Total cost for 1 adult and 2 kids…$11.88.
Some photos of our first visit are below.
What I can’t get over is how every time we take Christopher to get his hair cut the stylist always puts gel in his hair and sticks it forward like a wild man. Apparently stylists are great at judging character.
