Spa Party – A Cut Above!

800-brune
Wine, Cheese, Foot Massage, Conversation and Glamor. (I’m excited that this is what my post Holi plan entails.) I have been on the hunt for a really good hair dresser for a long time. You know how it is, you go thinking your haircut is going to be a spectacular upgrade of your current style and reflection of how far you’ve come in the land of cool and you often return a hat and sunglasses wondering how long it will take to grow out so you can start socializing again! But now I’m sorted. Have you met Carole Robequin? She’s one super stylist at Jean-Claude Biguine Bandra, Mumbai and she’s awesome.

I checked out Jean-Claude Biguine (a French Salon and Spa) in Bandra back in July 2008 and was thrilled to report your bad haircut blues are over. The next time you want a spanking new do make sure you book your face time with Carole (a training manager from France) who clearly knows how to snip and tuck. Bonus points for their funky massage chairs which give you a soothing back rub while you get your hair washed. I’ve also heard good things about their spa pedicure and French massage (very relaxing.) Now the ladies are well aware of this already but I thought I’d let the guys in on it too, while it may be wise to watch your wallet when it comes to indulging in life’s luxuries a pamper session like this is pretty priceless.

Anyway, on Thursday my favorite salon and Shaina N.C. are hosting a spa party for the Mumbai social circuit and a few Bollywood familiars including Raveena Tandon, Priya Dutt, Sonali Bendre, Poonam Dhillon, Simone Singh, Mini Mathur, Poonam Soni, Juhi Babbar, Alvira Khan, Anu Dewan, Raell Padamsee, Larra Shah and Purnima Mhatre. I’ll take pictures.

Actress Amrita Arora wed longtime boyfriend Shakeel Ladak in a lavish Catholic wedding at the Olive, Mumbai earlier this week. They even had a sangeet choreographed by Bollywood choreographer Farah Khan and hosted by Alvira Agnihotri (Salman Khan’s sister).

Amrita was dressed in an off-white vintage wedding gown designed by fashion designer Ashley Rebello, the actress will have her formal Nikaah today and then the couple will then proceed on their honeymoon.

The wedding was attended by Katrina Kaif, Priyanka Chopra, Ness Wadia, Urmila Matondkar, Ritesh Deshmukh, Farhan Akhtar, Gul Panag, Karishma Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan, Kim Sharma, Amrita Arora, Shakeel Ladak, Raveena Tandon, Malaika Arora Khan, Salman Khan, Aftab Shivdasani, Aditi Govitrikar, Tusshar Kapoor, Arshad Warsi, Suzanne Roshan Khan, Dino Morea, Neelam Kothari, Alvira Khan, Karan Johar, Sajid Khan and Arbaaz Khan. (Shah Rukh Khan, for obvious reasons, didn’t show up  Salman Khan was there) but Gauri Khan more than made up for his absence. Amrita’s Kambakht Ishq co-star Akshay Kumar and his wife Twinkle were also missing in action.

Amrita’s bridesmaid  and best friend Kareena Kapoor was the first to come and the last to leave. A little birdie tells me Saif was seen holding Kareena very close as if to say ‘Marry me right here, right now, Bebo’. Apparently Wardha and Karishma Kapoor almost didn’t make it to the wedding as the zippers of both their gowns came undone just as they were about to leave home. Fortunately, fresh zips and damage control allowed them to make it, unfortunately they missed they actual wedding.
