Hey beautiful souls,
So in my previous posts I wrote about how one should never forget to take care of himself. I also mentioned that I will be speaking about this Salon I had the chance to go to; Salon Lychee in Koreitem.
If you did not read my previous post (which is a shame, loyal reader!) here is a reminder of what this is all about. So one day after work I get a call from someone interested in me, supposedly, telling me they want to meet me in their salon. At first I thought that was a joke and I asked the subject person to send me an email with all the details because I honestly thought someone was fooling me! A day later, I receive an email with them details. That person wasn’t fooling me at all. The deal was for me to pick a day and try their service, hoping they would get a review or so. I usually do not do this but because I was so overwhelmed with work and I thought it was an opportunity for me to go and relax a bit; I accepted the offer. And I communicated this to the manager; I was frank that I was going to turn their offer down, but I kind of used them if I might say.
So, I went there, I made sure I had an auditor’s skeptic mind and I scanned the whole place.
If you know me, you’d know I hate two things;
1- How a girl needs a lotta maintenance (damn you guys!)
2- How it takes forever for hairdressers, or beauticians to render you their service because they want to talk to “get to know you” when they’re either talking about their life or their colleagues.
Surprise: some girls that hang out at the Salon don’t really care about all this! They just wann get minimum maintenance and that’s it!
So I did. I made sure I get to know a little bit everyone to see the type of employees the owner has recruited.
This brings me to the employer. A very successful woman who left her career path without actually leaving it – for personal reasons – to open a business in Lebanon. With a bachelor and a masters in HR, Mrs. Maya Shatila leaves Emirates Airlines to open Salon Lychee. Effectively, she doesn’t let go of her domain and opens her own freelance small office as a travel agent here in Lebanon.
I honestly appreciated the fact that this woman always seeks education and a career development in her domain, but also has in parallel this place that she is nurturing and trying to accommodate with the new trends such as Social Media to grasp opportunities in the market.
I went there on a Saturday morning and enjoyed their balcony to be honest before starting anything, got to know the team and enjoyed talking to them. Another person worth mentioning is Mrs. Rania Zahnan; responsible for everything laser and co.
I tried their brushing, their nail bar and their makeup (with Dani, a must meet person!). The people are very kind; they want you to be happy with what you asked for and they are very professional! No gossips no nothing (although you’ll always have some people that would try to trigger you, I won’t lie. However they are way less than ones in normal oh girly girly salons)
Service rated: 8.5/10
Here are some shots I took of the salon.
