UPDATE: While this salon still exists, the name has changed a couple of times now. And I no longer use this as my standard place to go. Also, within this building itself there are multiple options now (as there are over the rest of Sohna road).
I have been living at Sohna Road for many years now, and the worst part about living here was that you would have to drive out to MG road, or DLF, or Ambi mall for the smallest things – such as a haircut. Well at least for a haircut, I will no longer have to look anywhere other than Sohna Road. It’s not that there were no facilities to get a hair cut before. There are a couple of nice salons in Malibu Towne and South City 2; however, a lot of people (such as me) like to go into a slightly more upscale place – good air-conditioning, nice lighting, polite and clean staff, etc.
This is where Juassa comes in.
Juassa is located in the brand new shopping complex at the corner of the road to South City 2 (next to Fortune hotel; in front of Vipul Greens). For me, it’s a convenient 10 minute walk (gives me an excuse to walk as well).
The salon itself is great. Large area, doesn’t look crowded (bigger than most of the salons I have been to). Well lit, clean, and shiny (it’s new). The chairs were comfortable.
The guy who cut my hair was competent (I was happy with my hair cut). I was offered bottled water the moment I sat down to get my hair cut.
The hair cut was Rs. 200 (for men), which I think is very reasonable. I went on a weekday, and there wasn’t any waiting, but I am told (by my wife) that weekends can be crowded.
About the only thing that I didn’t like was that before starting, the guy who was cutting my hair got my hair shampooed. It turns out that the shampoo was charged extra (Rs. 100) – now if it was a charge, then I should have been given an option to say no. The way he simply asked one of his helpers to shampoo my hair made me think that it’s part of their process (in fact, that’s how I am used to it – this is what the other salons I have been to do).
Anyway, I will definitely be a regular there – since it is so conveniently close to home. No parking hassles. No driving hassle.
BTW: they have a full menu of services for the ladies.
