The Complete Beauty Package
As its name implies, A Cut Above goes the extra mile to pamper a modern-day bride from head to toe before her big day at any one of its luxurious salons
Mention A Cut Above and two things immediately spring to mind—having your hair done and also the name Datin Winnie Loo who is the creative director of the prestigious brand. Founded in 1979 by Datin Winnie and her enterprising husband Dato’ Richard Teo, A Cut Above might have its roots firmly entrenched in the hair salon business but the past three decades have motivated the brand to spread its wings into newer frontiers.
Similarly, modern brides in today’s day and age look for more than just having their hair cut and styled for their wedding. They seek for a haven of sorts to retreat to in order to beautify themselves before the big day. A busy bride juggling her day-to-day activities while planning for her wedding will not be able to make pitstops at different locations to get herself ready for the wedding. By visiting A Cut Above, a bride-to-be is able to have her beauty concerns addressed, all in one location.
From the moment you walk into any of its salon, be it the tucked-away one at Pavilion KL or the bustling MidValley Megamall branch, be prepared to be treated like a VIP. You will be ushered to a plush chair and offered a cup of coffee, tea or water as well as a menu of experiences to choose from.
Aside from the standard hair cut, styling and colouring by experienced hairstylists (and even from Datin Winnie Loo herself), you could also opt for hair treatments that will ensure your locks look fabulous. Popular favourites at the moment at every A Cut Above salon are the Brazilian Keratin treatment to eliminate frizz in the hair and also the extensive Kérastase hair rituals that target different hair concerns. Brides with short hair can always get hair extensions done at the salon as well.
Other beautifying services to choose from include having your bridal makeup done by the salon’s stylists, who you will be impressed to learn are well-versed in the art of makeup and hairstyling. There are also skilled manicurists and masseurs available, should you decide to further pamper yourself. It is also highly recommended that you go for a reflexology massage while you have your hair cut and your nails polished, all at one time. In fact, the salon’s front desk is able to order food and drinks from various cafes in the mall so you can have your meal while waiting for your hair to be done.
If you do not have the time to go to any of the salons, you can always request for an out- of-salon service in which the team at the salon will come to you instead. This option will give you a chance to arrange for your entire bridal party including your bridesmaids, mother and motherin-law to be prepped up for the wedding.
Last but not least, it is not only brides and their entourage who are welcome to visit A Cut Above. Guests who wish to look their best for a special occasion can be rest assured that they will be rendered an A-class service at any of the A Cut Above salons be it for a hair, makeup or manicure treatment. After all, that is what the salon stands for—an all-in-one beauty centre for anyone and everyone.
