There used to be a time when all we did all year long was to plan for the next holiday. It doesn't matter whether you just came back from one; just thinking about the last trip where you, maybe with your besties, escaped the summer heat at your favourite holiday spot, hunted for delicious foods, snapped instagrammable photos and headed to factory outlets for the best deals; just thinking about that was good enough to activate our wanderlust.
In came 2020 and poof!
All those plans vanished thanks to the pandemic.
Days, months and now year(s) have passed. Its been more than 365 days since most of us have been on a plane.
Seriously, all we want is to hide away... Can Ms Corona please leave us alone please?
With Heightened Alert, it feels as if this missus is going to hang around for some time. As much as we are bored out of our minds, there is one place we've recently rediscovered that gave us some momentary relief.
Nope, you don't need your passport.. just follow us through this portal as we teleport you out of this world into Chez Vous: HideAway.
Our first destination: Bali.
OK, not exactly Bali Bali but a Bali in Space.
Instead of Suntanning, you find an available bed, put on your sunglasses and get treated to blue light that actually REVERSES sun damage. Yup, that's the kind of thing to expect in this alternate world of Chez Vous HideAway. Instead of scrolling through your phone when you come early, request for the Convenience Facial where you can be treated to this Blue Light therapy as well Rose Water that calms and desensitizes your skin. If you want some extra pampering, simply turn the massage on and close your eyes as you imagine having skillful masseurs knead your tension away.
If there was an equivalent of a Bali in Space, don't you think this would be it?
Tired of Bali? Hop off to a Kerala-inspired hand massage station right at your seat.
All you have to do is to light up a candle, pour some melted wax over your hands, and pop it into the hand massager!
Don’t worry, it won’t burn! HideAway uses 100% natural soy candle, so it’s super safe, and warm enough to relieve you of all the piled up stress, and maybe even warm the cockles of your heart too.
This treatment costs quite a bit if you were to do it at nail salons but guess how much Chez Vous is charging you? Nil, Zilch, Nada!
This value-added service is absolutely free.
With your hands all pampered, it's time to head to Space and get a Swedish inspired scalp massage. You can choose between Swedish Scalp Massage (for normal and oily scalp), Shiatsu Scalp Massage (thinning and ageing scalp) as well as Ayurvedic Scalp Massage (dry and sensitive scalp) depending on your scalp type.
Don't worry about needing to choose. The experts here will diagnose your scalp condition and choose one if you don't have a preference.
All you need to do is to lay down and relax as you close your eyes and travel through space.
(Yes, the salon actually plays footage and music of you moving through space!)
We're familiar with the highly prized silk cocoon treatments for your face but did you know that you can do so for your scalp as well?
Believe it or not, our scalp ages 6 times faster than our face. Yes, SIX.
Neglect your scalp and you're likely to see premature hair fall that'll accelerate the ageing process. That's why the good people in Chez Vous makes sure to layer on enough TLC by rejuvenating your scalp with silk cocoons during the shampoo process.
They use the silk cocoon to exfoliate the dead skin, get rid of product buildup and fight off any excess oil during the shampoo process. That’s right, they use the tiny balls of silk that silkworms spit out. But it’s not as disgusting as it sounds.
The cocoon is actually packed with amino acids that help increase skin elasticity, increase collagen and fibroblast production, improve scalp immunity and give you a healthier scalp!
We want our friends to visually notice the difference in our hair, either a new colour, or maybe a perm. Not smell the difference.
Chez Vous makes that possible with an inhalation therapy that allows you to choose between lavender, thyme, bergamot, lavender, spearmint and peppermint essential oils.
As you breathe in that goodness, have a sip of their honey shots and close your eyes to immerse yourself in the lavender fields of Provence.
If you miss the hot herbal compress at your favourite massage salons in Bangkok, we have good news for you.
You may be here for a hair service but knowing how badly you need to destress, Chez Vous HideAway has incorporated the Thai Herbal Ball Compress, along with Jade Rollers, Tuning Forks, electronic scalp massagers in its signature Quick Relief Massage.
It’s the perfect all-in-one stop for a hair makeover, and to fully relax and chill.
Experiencing back pain from endless days of WFH? Come by for a complimentary use of the Australian Oska pulse. I
f you're wondering why Oska, this device was named after a koala who was badly burned in an Australian bushfire. He was not responding to medication and was crying in pain. The vet's friend suggested they place a PEMF device near the koala to help reduce the pain and within a day he stopped crying, and in just a few days he started responding to treatment.
While this machine doesn't exactly feel like a Koala, it uses low-level pulse electromagnetic waves to help you forget what it means to even have a muscle ache.
Do you want to experience what Oska experienced? Come by for the treatment, provided free of charge at HideAway.
Overstimulated by all the electronics and just want to have some alone time ie. no small talk with the stylist?
At HideAway, you can put in a request for their Quiet Chair Service when booking the appointment. Your stylist will get the hint, and discuss only what is necessary for your hair appointment. No questions imploring you on life, what you had for breakfast, or which Covid-19 vaccine you took.
Interesting trivia: do you know how they indicate the Quiet Chair to all staff in the salon?
Yep, the stylist will place a reed diffuser on the table and you'd be treated to the silent retreat of your dreams.
