The irony lies in the fact that you might search the entire city, but only a broken down, dilapidated building, with not a single direction board, can provide you with a 24 Carat Gold Facial. But as the staff at Shahnaz Husain's Beauty Clinic puts it, who needs direction boards to this place? If you are somebody in this city, you'll know the place anyway.
Managed by Rehana Hussain, who has worked here since the parlor was set up, this beauty clinic will startle you with the contrast between its outsides and insides. A massive area has been partitioned off into various rooms for waxing, electrolysis, haircutting, makeup and all the other regular stuff we do to ourselves in the quest for beauty.
Their most famous beauty job is, of course, the Gold Facial, which costs about Rs. 1,200 - Rs. 1,500, and is done with pure 24 carat gold. They provide the gold, you don't have to take it along. Also very famous is their Veg Peel Pimple Treatment, which is about Rs. 250. The products used are purely Shahnaz Husain products, since this is a parlor set up by Shahnaz's own franchisee cousin. So don't you worry about the authenticity of the place.
As for the prices, they seem quite moderate. In fact, for this kind of quality, it's a cozy deal. Try catching them in the afternoons on the weekdays, and you'll be lavished with pampering befitting a queen. For, you will probably be the only customer there at that time. Do go with enough time in hand, to check out their vast range of hair and skin care products (only herbal), lined up in their shelves.
Some of their exotic products, and what they sounded like to me, are:
- Antiseptic Barrier Ointment (for beavers with a rash)
- Thermal Mini Face-Lift (for people who are small-sized and hot)
- Derma-Abrasive Treatment (an easier and less messy kind of plastic surgery)
- Hair Mascara (for hair that's anywhere but on your eyes)
- Bust-firming masks (a film starring Jennifer Lopez and Jim Carrey)
Since the names can be so misleading, be sure to find out what it is exactly that you are carrying off home. Of course, there are enough people to help you out with anything you don't understand. And all of them would be more than pleased to assist you. For, this beauty parlor tucked away in a broken down building stands for exemplary service and unquestionable quality.
