“I have been going to Meghna Butani for the past 10 years! She owns a quaint salon in Juhu called Tangles. She's the only person I trust to give me a haircut or colour. She's humble and has been most patient in dealing with me and all my hair requests. She's responsible for some of my craziest hair transformation phases through my teens. She's a fancy celebrity hair and makeup artist now but that hasn't changed how approachable and sweet she is. If you're in and around Juhu, I would highly recommend you give her a call.”

“My hairstylist’s name is Carolyn. She’s currently working at Swivel Salon in Mumbai. I trust her with my hair because she knows my mane’s texture, busy work schedule and my lifestyle. Keeping that in mind, she recommends tips and products for what will work for my hair. I like that she gives me a low maintenance cut and colour. In fact, I even noticed that the colouring process does not weaken or damage my hair. She’s my go-to hairstylist at the moment.”

Finding a hairstylist who understands curly hair in Mumbai is next to impossible. As a woman who has curly hair, let me be honest with you, they’re pretty high maintenance. After years of trial and error with hairstylists, I finally found one who really understood and helped me learn how to take care of my curls. Yep, Bani Oberoi from ‘Happy In The Head’ has my heart. She’s less talk and more work. She specialises in treating and cutting curly hair. What I like about her is that she styles your hair keeping your personality and face cut in mind. As long as she’s around, I’m at peace with my curls. PS: Since she’s always busy and surrounded by clients, you might want to call up the salon to fix a date and time with her.

“Anchal is one of the few hairstylists who thoroughly understands your hair and gives you exactly what you're looking for. She's extremely talented and has never disappointed me. Her Instagram page shows the magic her hands possess. Being a celebrity hairstylist, she's humble and will give you a haircut you won't cry about once it's done. According to me, she's the best person to go to if you're looking for someone who's trustworthy and to make your hair look its best!”

“As someone who's been new to Mumbai, it was pretty hard for me to find a good hairstylist, that too with no recommendations at all. So it was a trial and error scene. Tried a couple of them and was disappointed all the time! Then a year back met my current stylist Raj from Enrich Salon, Chembur, accidentally. He was styling my husband's hair, and somehow, I felt confident that he could understand my hair as well. And I was right, from then on, he is in charge of my hair and I am quite happy with the way my hair looks now. He understands the texture of my hair, my hair woes and my personal style and recommends hair cut and styles accordingly.”

“My hair touchwood has been the least problematic thing about my appearance. It doesn’t require too much upkeep and behaves itself in most cases. But there’s always that ONE hairstylist you’d have blind faith in especially if you’re looking at a makeover or a change of look. For me, that person is. Savio John Pereira. You could call him family or my family hairstylist because my parents started going to him first and then by virtue of that I started with him as well. He understands hair like nobody does and also stops you from doing something crazy when it isn’t the right time. There’s also another hairstylist at his salon in Bandra called Rohan, he is my second go-to person if SJP isn’t available. With him, my hair and I both feel at home.”
