Short Cut to A Happy Child? Sure!
Short Cuts is the first of it’s kind in Gurgaon; A concept that breaks away from being a typical salon; It is an experience that changes the way you’ll look at salons, being the only ‘EXCLUSIVE KIDS’ SALON & SPA’ in Gurgaon. The tryst is an experience, that I got my daughter to undergo first hand. What impressed me as I entered the place was the neatness. Isn’t that what is every parent’s paranoia? So, mine was put to rest. Then came the challenge…. the cut! As the hair stylist Sachin, gently put her at ease by offering her popcorn! Of course it worked! As he went about snipping, she munched her way through the haircut, and happily!! A job dreaded….. ended successfully… professionally done!
Next we were on for a manicure… for my daughter of course! The expert, isn’t just for the service provided, but in resonating with the kids as well! Here I must reiterate the fact that my thorough scrutiny of the products used, got them a few brownie points, sourced diligently and carefully from across the world, from safe brands, being chemical free, organic and literally farm fresh, keeping ‘SAFETY’ and ‘HEALTH’ as the primary concern.
The nails all groomed and clean, as a mother, my worries were well put to rest. The highlight of the session being… her favourite cartoon playing, making it an entertaining yet productive experience. Now, who wouldn’t agree with that?
