For those of you who are in “the know” of all things beautiful in Hong Kong, have undoubtedly heard of Paul Gerrard – a well established beauty salon.
The Good Customer loves to do her research before embarking into any new establishment – especiallyÂ beauty salons.
After delving into the world wide web, toÂ search for a reputable place to have my locks clipped,Â I came across Paul Gerrard Salon.Â Â What is this? AÂ dedicated page that had info and bios of their whole team – hair stylists, estheticians, nail technicians, assistants. There is also detailed information on their services plus pricing. Love it! In addition, you can also book your appointment online. How convenient is that?Â Love it!
I choose my stylist from the thumbnail pictures and made my appointment online. 2 days before my appointment, I get a reminder text (sms) message from the salon. 1 day before my appointment, I receive a personal call from the salon. How courteous and efficient. Seems like they run a well-oiled, tight ship of an operation. Love it!
The day ofÂ appointment arrived. After carefully manoeuvring my way up the knobby steps of Pottinger Street in Central, I found my way to the 2nd floor of Wah Hing House.
The interior of the salon is dated due to the age of the building it is housed in. What is lacking in ambience is made up by the down-to-earth, and super friendly staff. Love it!
This is not your average high-end salon chock full of starlets and wealthy housewives. You will not find hipster assistants scurrying around the “too cool for school” stylists.
Clientele consists mostly of expats and most of the stylistsÂ are not local Hong Kongers. Â Apparently, this salon is renowned for their hair colouring/hi-lighting services for blondes.
Service is gracious without being pretentious. Love it!
Those of you seeking a day of pampering, canÂ alsoÂ indulge in the salon’s estheticianÂ and nail services.
