The holiday season is upon us. There will be Christmas parties and dinners and then a week later it will be New Year’s Eve, which is always a big night out. Be it you’re going out for a romantic dinner with your partner or to a bash with hundreds of people, we all desire to look our best. It makes no difference if we’re a lady or a man. Everybody wants to look great for these special occasions.
So what do you need to look fantastic? Maybe a new frock and shoes. What about your hair, nails, face and skin? The Shampoo Lounge has everything for men and women with forty staff members to serve singles or groups of people. This spa has grown quite large during the past few years on two levels.
TSL has prepared a special Party Prep Package which consists of:
- Hair wash and blow dry
- Make up
They have five hair stylists to give you a “great hair day”. I had seen a favourite TV show with a woman whose hair style I fell in love with. I wondered if my hair would look the same. I brought in my laptop and showed a video clip to Ade, one of the hair stylists. He assured me he could do this for me. I decided to go the extra mile and also have my hair cut before the blow dry.
I really enjoyed the relaxing shampoo head massage and then was escorted to a hair throne and had a cape placed around my shoulders. Then Ade snipped away several centimeters of hair, falling around my chair, moving from side to side of my head with his scissors. And then he plugged in the hair dryer and blew the hair into a fashionable style. When he finished he took a large mirror and showed me my hair from every angle. Was I pleased? Yes, indeed!
After this, I was led upstairs to the make-up room. Here I met their make-up artist, who sat me down and assessed my face. He asked where I was going and what I would be wearing that night to determine what look I wished to present to my fellow party goers. They use MAC and Sephora make-up products. After blending in a suitable foundation for my skin he began adding touches to highlight or diminish where appropriate. Because this was an evening event he gave me smoky eyes for a sultry look.
With a gorgeous face I was led downstairs to the manicure/pedicure lounge where foot massage is also performed. With six chairs spread out it was very comfortable seating. Juni showed me a selection of OPI polishes to choose from, then sat down and proceeded with an expert manicure.
The Shampoo Lounge has everything you need to get beautiful. Full hair services including keratin smoothing treatment, ombre-dip dye-balayage, and hair extensions. Eyelash extensions, waxing, a full range of nail services for manicure/ pedicure including acrylic & acrylic gel, make-up and a great selection of facials. They also have six massage beds upstairs for TSL Signature massage, warm lava stone body, Traditional Balinese, Ahhh- romatherapy, Cellulite control, mom to be, athletic, soothing hot stone foot reflexology. If you’ve just arrived and need a quick tan they offer spray tanning with Black Magic.
Even the guys would like to look great for the holiday parties. They have a special package for you dudes called Bali Big Boss, which consists of scissor hair-cut, hot towel traditional wet shave and wash scalp massage with aloe vera. If you’ve never had a traditional wet shave with a straight edge razor, you’re missing out on an old fashioned tradition of luxurious pampering. At one time all gentlemen went to a barber for this ritual prior to World War 1.
During the war Gillette invented the safety razor for soldiers to carry with them into the war zone. Since then most men use some sort of safety razor and rarely go to a barber for this decadent treatment. Don’t worry, all ten barbers are highly skilled with their razors and taught English daily.
Barbershops in the States are frequently referred to as “poor man’s country clubs,” and this place is the ultimate man cave with cold Bintangs, whiskeys, comfy chairs, spa staff available for that foot massage or nail trimming while waiting. Their famous “Sports Massages,” quite popular among the many surfers, CrossFit, body builders, MMA, and yoga enthusiasts on the island. The Barber Spa section features men’s aesthetic services such as facials to remove road dust, waxing for the smoother gents, and spray tanning for a healthy beach glow.
There’s one of Bali’s best Tattoo Studios up in the loft managed by Canggu famous Bold & Bright artists placing an emphasis upon individualized designs using the best imported ink that will hold its color for a lifetime. Ink is forever so this is the place to go for ultra quality workmanship in a sterile environment.
But wait there’s more…There’s a full time “Dreadspert” on staff and quite busy attending to the many dreaded heads on the island. And if that’s not enough, they deliver and can be frequently seen attending to the many villa soirees, weddings, and photo shoots on the island.
When you’re looking for a great salon to get gorgeous for the holidays head to The Shampoo Lounge. This friendly place has everything you desire to make you look great.
