When I move to a new location my hunt begins for a few essential resources and a hairdresser is one such necessity. As I’m sure many ladies can attest, this can be quite a stressful endeavor. When I first arrived in Mumbai and began to attend the expat coffee mornings (as the expats are usually the best resource for local knowledge), the name that everyone gave me when I enquired about where they went to get their hair done was pretty much without exception, Renee Melek.
After one not entirely satisfactory visit to the Toni & Guy in Mumbai (as that was the salon I was using in London) I decided there was safety in numbers and booked to visit Renee. Renee and all her staff are so welcoming. I have been very happy with Renee’s knowledge and ability to keep my hair the correct color and to tame my wild locks in the heat and humidity of Mumbai. Renee has been in the hairdressing industry for over 15 years and specializes in hairstyling for Indian and expatriate clients.
As an added bonus, I have also discovered that the salon offers pedicures that David and I love and have now become regulars. I am told they also do threading and waxing although have not tried this service, yet. Go see for yourself;
