Fancy a New ‘Do’?
New hair styling salon on Elgin Street offering blowouts, updos, and hair style services.
We check out Amika Hairdo Bar
We were recently invited to try out the new Amika Hairdo Bar in Central, and have to say that we were pretty impressed with both the venue and the results. Amika is the first of it’s kind – a styling-only salon offering blowouts, updos, and styles using only Amika organic hair products and styling tools. Amika products all use Obliphica (Sea Buckthorn Berry) as an ingredient to nourish and protect hair naturally, making it safe for everyone (including young girls and pregnant women) to use, as well eliminating the telltale chemical “salon” odor , replacing it with a fresh floral scent. The overall vibe of the bar (and yes, it really IS a bar – customers are invited to enjoy a glass of champagne or soft drink during their appointment) is fun and funky. With walls painted to match the bright and colorful “Obliphica” print on their product bottles and shelves lined with glass jars full of candy treats there for the taking, it would make a perfect venue for a hen do or birthday party.
Prices range from $180 for styling to $550 for an updo (no shampoo included), while blowouts are $280, including a shampoo. Add ons such as Services are designed to be quick – the curly “Alluring Waves” style we chose took just under an hour to complete – though as comfy and fun we found Amika, you may want to stay all afternoon!
Amika Hairdo Bar is located at 8 Elgin Street, Central, Hong Kong; tel. 2291-0070 for appointments.
