Levo is a world class (and super awesome) spalon (Spa + Salon). Vidya Tikari is a fantastic makeup artist needing no introduction. When the two come together it is magic!
When my friend Lavli told me that Vidya has tied up with Levo and would be kicking off the association by doing four makeovers at the spa I was not going to miss it for anything.
I picked up my video equipment and drove down to Gurgaon. The Spalon is situated inside Ibis Hotel premises in the tony Golf Course area. Having reached about half an hour early I decided to take out my camera click a few shots and chat up with the staff.
Even though Levo started in 2010 the place looks like it open yesterday. You will not find the signs of wear and tear etc. at Levo. Everything looks brand new and in place. Levo is big. I was told that it covers an area of 10,000 square feet. The decor is amazing. It is in shades of white and with the vibrant pastel lights of the equipment the feeling is magical. Hey, why not check out some photos.
The experts are knowledgeable and friendly. Levo offers a range of services including hair styling, eyelash extension, and an array of face & body treatments. The team of experts is led by Mila Parakhina, an international hair stylist.
Vidya came in with her staff around fivish. That is when my work began. I took out my tripod, fitted the camera and moved in to shoot the makeovers (Videos to be uploaded soon my youtube channel). Vidya Tikari is a magical makeover artist. I had the pleasure to shoot a small video with her for my youtube channel a long time back. But this time it was four makeovers. So I had an opportunity to spend quite some time with her. Vidya Tikari is not only a gifted makeup artist, but also an amazing individual. I am really looking forward to doing more video with her.
The day ended (at least for me) after the makeovers were complete. The event also saw a bevy of celebrity guests.
