Sip on a mocktail as you get your curls done at this style bar, Volt
Margaritas over manicure. That’s pretty much the theme for the evening for this group of 27-yearolds celebrating their friend’s bachelorette party at Volt, a glitzy new salon in the city. “Except that, here we serve mocktails, so a virgin margarita/martini, perhaps,” laughs Shweta Pradhyum, who started Volt along with husband Pradhyum G, and friends Raghav Krishna and David Pradeep Nissanka.
The team at Volt likes to call it a style bar rather than a salon. Here, it’s all about the experience, says Shweta. Which is why they also let clients book the entire space for parties or just a relaxing night out with the gang, complete with massages and hair spa. Imagine cutting into a cake while your hair is wrapped up in silver foil. That's definitely one for Insta!
“We have something called Network at Volt where you can bring your friends, get a blow dry or party make up and dress up, while sipping on refreshing mocktails, all for ₹3,500,” she says.
The 2,800-square-foot salon has five service rooms, including one dry spa, a wet spa, and an exclusive VIP room. Nissanka, fondly known as Nish has worked with a bunch of celebrity clients such as Kamal Haasan, Akshara Haasan, Sonia Aggarwal, Sunaina...
While they do blowouts, hair treatments, massages, funky hair colours (from blues amd maroons to unicorn hair) and the works, one of the new beauty techniques they are introducing this month is, semi permanent eyebrow tint. It stays for three months and makes the eyebrows look more defined. A few of the team members are training in Thailand for the same.
Meanwhile, Pradhyum has just finished getting his hair coloured. His jet black hair now has speckles of silvery white. He’s deliberately got the salt and pepper look, something that is actually trending, I am told. It adds gravitas to a look, apparently.
