Almost every day I fret over how to do my hair and more often than not, I end up tying it in a ponytail to keep it fuss free at the office. However when it comes to getting a haircut, I always look for the best.
We all know that how important a haircut is. Having my haircut done in some of the best salons in the world (Shunji Matsuo, Toni and Guy, Andrew Barton, etc) and after a lot of experimenting at myriad hair salons in Mumbai, here is a review of the best places in Mumbai to get a good haircut.
Mumbai's trendiest hair salon where you are sure to come across some or the other bollywood biggies. A chic salon, set up by Adhuna Akhtar, is one of the best places in town to get a great haircut. Transform dull hair into wow factor hair with the help of renowned hair stylists of b:blunt, stylist to actors such as Aamir Khan, Preity Zinta, Hrithik Roshan, Saif Ali Khan. Their friendly staff will suggest you the hair style best suited for your hair, but make sure you tell them if you have a specific need (like not going too short). And when you visit the salon, you might be getting your haircut next to a bollywwid biggy or a leggy model. They started their first salon at Peddar Road and now have branches across Mumbai including Juhu and Bandra.
Apart from their 'great haircuts', you can also indulge in one of the Kérastase hair treatments to relieve you from your stress and leave your locks visibly healthier, shinier and smooth. The range of hair extensions at b:Blunt is however limited so for hair extensions you could try some other hair salon.
Recommended Stylist: Avan Contractor, Osh (charges about Rs. 3,500) and Naz (charges about Rs 1,800).
Charges: From Rs 800-4000, for a hair wash, cut and blow dry, depending on the stylist you are choosing. They do hair straightening, manicures and whole lot of other treatments.
Note: review of hairstylist Kadamberi for men is not good from the readers, so guys you may want to consider some other stylist.

The famous Toni and Guy also opened its doors in Mumbai somewhere in 2008.

They have two salons in town, one in the suburbs and the other in South Mumbai (don't know much about the Cuff Parade one).
