The Great Salon Deception: Farah Hussain’s Ladies Salon

By HAYAA KHURSHID

Hey girls. So, everybody loves going to the spa right? This blogger certainly has spa-ing in her top five most favourite ways to pass the time, along with shopping and chilling with my besties and boo. Anyway, because of this and thanks to a very generous mum, I’ve had the luxury of sampling the best spas and salons that Karachi and Lahore have to offer.

Sometimes I leave the spa feeling like I had spent the day in heaven, with no remorse about the odd 4-10k spent on salon and spa treatments. That is because a good spa experience is supposed to leave you rejuvenated and refreshed, not to mention looking gorgeous and smelling divine.

Blogging has other perks. Because I spend a lot of my time on the internet, I managed to sample a lot of deals that come on these, “Oh, I don’t believe we can get so much in so little’ packages on sites like www.dealstoday.pk and others of its kind.

The Deal:

I was salon scouting a week ago, and I came across “Farah Hussain’s Salon” on www.dealstoday.pk. The deal seemed unbelievably awesome. A whitening facial, or haircut, along with protein hair treatment, an OPI manicure/pedicure along with a face polish and blow-dry, all for Rs. 1200. Amazing right? I jumped on the opportunity, because the same services at my pet spa, Roohi’s would have cost me three quarters of what I used to earn before I was a broke college student. Continue reading

Lux’s Philosophy:

Feminine, decadent, but always accessible, Lux provides women with a collection of sophisticated products developed to meet their needs and delight their senses.

Garnier brings you Eye Roll On to reduce signs of fatigue(i.e. Eye bags, Dark eye circles, Puffy eyes) from under your eyes.
