Ashvin Bally is a household name, and his salon in Woodbrook is no less well known. From its head stylist to its famous clientele to its interior decor, Hair by Bally is so much more than a salon!
From the salon’s inception six years ago to present day, Hair by Bally has hosted a series of impressive clients including diplomats, ministers, models and pageants contestants. In fact, when you walk through the doors of the studio you are greeted by autographed photos of the universe’s most beautiful women whose hair Bally has dressed. While this adds to the accreditation and luster of the salon, what makes the salon truly unique is its willingness and enthusiasm to host anybody who wants a great hair style!
Bally is the head stylist at his establishment and as such he ensures that every client is comfortable and satisfied with the service he provides. Comfort and satisfaction start with the aesthetic appeal of the studio. The rich ornate lighting infuses the meticulous black color scheme. From the black leather waiting couch to the black rectangle mirrored personalized work stations to the black uniforms of his staff, the salon’s classy look matches the superior service it offers.
While Bally oversees all of the salon’s activities, the other styling staff help make the studio the premier styling entity that it is. Needless to say the salon is outfitted with all the industry’s finest personnel. Well trained and qualified, all the stylists at Bally’s uphold the salon’s standard of perfection.
The salon operates by appointment in order to facilitate its large and ever growing clientele, and it’s probably one of the only salon’s that can be found open at 7 am on a Monday to Saturday morning! When asked about the curious-but-convenient opening hours Bally said, “When I started as a stylist I was working for another salon. And coming from South (Trinidad) the options were either to leave home early and beat the traffic or leave home later and be late! So I got use to being at work early. I’m an early bird anyway so it works well for me.” And from the looks of the client listing at Bally’s, the early hours work well for many people! The salon closes at 5pm, though there is no end to the masterpieces created at Hair by Bally!
