Set in a backdrop that exudes the style director’s long years of achievement, Salon KESS at Rosemead Place is a hub of creativity. At KESS, the concentration is on carving and creating something unique by putting to work the impressive skills of the team at the salon, headed by Vasantha De Silva. Everything about KESS exudes modernism and hints at contemporary fashion-from its rustic architecture and interior design to the ambience of the premises to the staff-it is all about being trendy and standing out from the rest.
With rather an unorthodox approach to the industry of hair and beauty, Vasantha continues to create extraordinary styles that resemble modernity and elegance. With over two decades of experience in the field, he strives to redefine style and beauty.
The salon guarantees that anyone who steps into the salon will be pampered and receive the best treatment in Sri Lanka. The team will educate their clients on their hair type and what suits them the best, as the team considers it their responsibility to ensure that all clients who leave KESS have received the best possible service. Their focus is on the technique and style and how it will look the next day, rather than just after a haircut.
According to Vasantha, many clients who walk into the salon do not have a clear idea of their hair type or how it should be maintained. As such, he educates them on the proper maintenance of hair using the right products, and encourages them not to undergo heavy chemical treatment for hair such as straightening or rebonding. “When clients come in, they always say they have frizzy hair. Frizzy hair means curly hair. Curly hair is not frizzy, it is just that they don’t know how to maintain it and manage the hair. We do have frizzy hair but everything can be controlled using conditioner and products. So trying to relax or straighten the hair is not a solution because when it is growing out, you get the regrowth,” says Vasantha.
KESS also provides make up and bridal services, with emphasis on making the client look her best with simplicity and elegance. With a team of 25 expert cutters, stylists who are passionate about what they do, KESS strives to create something with every opportunity they are given, you can be rest assured that you will be served from the best when you visit the salon.
Having understood the necessity of an institution in the industry that would provide young enthusiasts the guidance to enter the hair and beauty industry, the next venture of Salon KESS will be the introduction of a two-year on-the-job training course for hair and beauty. Commenting on the venture, Vasantha says that though youngsters today acquire numerous paper qualifications, they do not receive essential practical training that is vital for the job. It is Vasantha’s objective to mentor skilled youngsters and encourage them to reach greater heights in the industry, building names for themselves as professional beauticians.
Salon KESS strives to outgrow itself and develop further, to deliver world-class services to its clients by helping them bring out their beauty.
