Changing salons or stylists is scary enough, at least for me. But moving to yet another country where there isn’t a single natural blonde national compounds that stress for me. I’m happy to report, however, that Toni&Guy has once again come to the rescue. To more specific, Elaine – the salon director in Mont Kiara – is the best! She’s an expat expert (haha, say that 3 times fast!) and has me comfortably styled with natural and lovely blonde highlights.
Located in Publika, Toni&Guy Mont Kiara is a lovely salon staffed with a very sweet team of stylists and technicians. The interior design of the salon is modern and minimalist, using the contrast of black on white with a splash of colour here and there for that wow factor. The music they play is a mix of modern R&B and lounge tunes that’s relaxing. Oh, and I haven’t seen a single child at T&G since I started going to them (which is not a reality at so many of the salons in malls here in KL).
Why You’ll Love Toni&Guy Mont Kiara
Of course, finding a salon with stylists who’ve worked internationally and understand how to cut and highlight blonde hair is the #1 reason I think it’s the best salon in Kuala Lumpur, yet there are a few other reasons that make it a perfect choice for us foreigners to call our new home:
- The Keratase luxury conditioning ritual is the BEST I’ve experienced in my life!!! Elaine explained that it’s a protein-based treatment used after the highlights are done to strengthen the hair. She adds a ‘booster’ to it as well to nourish my hair. Honestly, for 2 weeks following my appointments my hair is always the softest it has been in my life. I realise this might sound like bullshit but it’s absolutely 100% true. It’s now a monthly gift I give to myself because it’s made my hair turn from dry and habitually damaged to continually healthy. Prices range from RM 250 – 450, depending on hair length.
- Their VIP ‘spa’ room for special treatments makes you feel absolutely pampered, decorated with velvet curtains and glass chandeliers.
- Prices are really reasonable, with full head highlights starting at RM 550 for short hair (a bit more for long hair), and haircuts with Elaine at RM 170 or RM 85 for a cut by one of the other stylists.
Best Blonde Highlights in Kuala Lumpur
If you’re a bit of a nervous nelly like me when it comes to selecting a new stylist then I highly recommend choosing the salon director Elaine. She knows exactly how to cut my fine, thin hair so that it withstands the humidity here in Kuala Lumpur as well as possible, and she will absolutely sort you out with the best blonde highlights.
Toni&Guy Mont Kiara is really easy to find, with lots of parking. It’s ground level along the main outside street at Publika just past the main row of restaurants … with a big sign in front, you can’t miss it.
