As anyone with young kids knows, carving out a few hours in the salon can feel like more effort than you need to summit Everest. At least, that’s what I thought until I visited Emmanuel F. This eco-luxe concept salon provides hair cuts, hair colour, spa and makeup services in one convenient location, tailored to mums and mums-to-be.
Need more pampering? We review Emmanuel F’s balancing signature facial
Emmanuel F offers luxury treatments for hair and body, using eco-friendly practices. In other words, you can get pampered without concern for your health or your child’s. The team also understands the juggle of modern-day mothers. The design of each station is semi-private for the comfort of working and breastfeeding mums. Kids are welcome too; there’s even hot chocolate to keep them happy!
My priority was hair colour – it had been too long between appointments. My colour had faded and my hair condition was poor. The salon understands that product choice can be a concern for women who are pregnant or nursing. It’s committed to products that are safe and natural. For the past nine years, it’s been using Organic Colour System products, which are 90 to 95 percent natural and certified organic.
After my hair was prepped and moisturised and the hair colour applied, I was whisked off to have some waxing done. This is the kind of multi-tasking approach that can only be truly appreciated by mums with little time to spare! The results? My eyebrows look amazing, my hair is shiny and vibrant, and, best of all, the experience was entirely stress-free!
