I have been going through this parlour since 3-4 years and now I feel badly cheated.If you people have read my recent post I always get my hair cut from this parlour .One of the hair cutter of this parlour is amongst the best if I compare to any other Delhi NCR parlours which I have visited.I won’t disclose his name because it might put his job into danger.
I visited this parlor in 2007 first when of my office colleague told me about it.I really liked her hair cut and this made me visit them.A usual hair cut in the parlor cost around Rs 500 but there will be hardly any one who will spend this less in this parlor reason being the owner attitude of minting money.
This is not the loreal pacific mall pic .It is some parlor pic which I got from photobucket
First time when I visited the hair cutter asked me to get coloring done as it will change my look and all.I got convinced and ended up spending some where 3500 -4000.Though my color was not liked by any one but I took the responsibility as it was my decision to get them colored.Hair cutter said that it will cost me Rs5000 .I bluntly refused saying I can not spend this much amount so he called the owner and she reduced it down to Rs3,500.
After 6-7 months I went again and again he asked me to get whole hair in the original color as the previous color is not suiting me.I knew that it was not suiting me I again got it done and again spent the same amount if I am not wrong.
Afterwards I went there few more times and I was advised to get my hair washed before getting them cut .I some times did which obviously costed me good amount too. Interesting thing is if you will get hair cut done they will not even offer you water but if you will get re bonding or other thing done they even will get Cafecoffee day or barista coffee for you:D
In my marriage too I went for hair cut and ended spending some Rs7000 on re bonding.In Indian marriage we all generally prefer making a heavy bun which requires lot of sprays and gel to be applied. So generally one is not advised to get re bonding done right before your marriage.But they convinced me up that nothing will happen.Re bonding costed me more than Rs7000 because I was asked to buy various other products too keep my hair healthy.
I still lost so much of hair after re bonding that one point of time I was thinking i will go bald.Thankfully some of the things saved my hair and my hair are not bad now.
This time again when I went there I was again asked by the hair cutter to go get coloring or highlighting done.When I bluntly refused he asked me to get my hair washed.I said I have just washed my hair one hour ago why you want to get them washed again.He replied that they are sweaty and he won’t be able to apply the dryer.
I was just not in mood to spend more money and I told him to cut my sweaty hair and I am not going to get them washed.My hair were almost wet and I knew they were not sweaty.And he did applied the hair dryer on my so called sweaty hair.
When they were preparing my bill an old man who I think is the owner husband scolded him for not asking me to wash my hair.I mean how pushy can you get to make other person splurge.He was so desperate that he didn’t even wait for me to go and then scold him.It was on his face, the disappointment of not to get at least thousand from me.
In fact when I was getting my hair coloring the owner use to come to the hair cutter and tell him not to use much color on my hair as I have bargained with them.If hair cutter in the parlor are so pushy it is because of the owner.
As I have been there customer since 3-4 years I now know what there tactics is.They will make sure you spends thousands and thousands and won’t give a damn to your hair.Hair cutter did helped me few times by advising me not to get my make up done from there and all but now they will not do that also.Their only motive if to make the customer spend as much as possible and in fact indirectly forced the customer to spend .
If you happen to visit there parlor please don’t take there advise and do what you feel is the best for you.I even googled about this parlor and found few more customer complaints.I know there are many complaints which would have not been discussed also but from my side I am doing my need full by writing it down here for more awareness about this parlor.
