Planning a new look, or want to book in some much-needed me time ahead of the holiday season? We know the feeling all too well, which is exactly why we booked into Indulgence Salon. A visit to this modern oasis right in the heart of Central will leave you feeling relaxed, refreshed and thoroughly pampered – exactly what you need before the party season hits!
With a spacious salon and private treatment rooms, Indulgence has created an urban retreat high above bustling Wellington Street. The team of experienced international hair stylists and beauty therapists really focus on their clients’ style and wellbeing, with everyone receiving a detailed consultation to ensure their treatment is personalised to their needs. This attention to detail was something we all really appreciated during our visit.
The salon’s extensive menu includes sought-after hair treatments (including balayage and natural hair extensions), Indian head and stone massage, luxurious facial rituals from French marine beauty brand, Thalgo, as well as manicures, pedicures and other beauty and hair services. Indulgence’s recently launched wellness programme also offers a free body massage and Pilates classes when booking certain treatments. Talk about a bonus!
The salon’s tranquil atmosphere and luxurious treatments left us feeling like we’d had a mini spa weekend. Read on for what Team Sassy thought when they checked out a range of treatments at Indulgence, and for some exclusive reader perks…
Name & Title Sam Book, Marketing Manager
Old look: Shapeless shoulder length hair (a very outgrown long bob) in my natural colour
New look: A razor-sharp bob with blonde highlights
My stylist was… brilliant! I was pretty apprehensive before the appointment as I haven’t had my hair coloured in a few years and like my look to be very natural. Rebecca really took her time to chat to me to find out about my personal style and what I was looking for. She totally understood what I wanted and I’m so happy with my new haircut. As an added bonus, Rebecca gave me loads of tips on how to keep my new style in good condition and beat the Hong Kong humidity!
My favourite part was… the big reveal! I was thrilled with how the subtle highlights gave a lift to my natural colour. Oh, and getting to spend the morning chilling out in the Indulgence salon with its 22nd-floor views of Central. The whole team were great and kept me well supplied with coffee while I powered through my emails using the free Wifi.

Name & Title: Lauren Boydell, Sassy Mama Editor
Old look: A bit dull, shapeless and wavy (the quality of wave changes on a day-to-day basis…)
New look: More defined shape and natural blonde balayage
My stylist was… incredibly experienced and knowledgeable. Steve cut my hair and added a natural blonde upgrade. He explained that his style of hairdressing is all about ‘beautifying’ and that balayage (when done properly) should complement and enhance the natural hair colour. I didn’t really know what I wanted originally, but Steve managed to cut my hair so that it now falls much better without having to blow dry or straighten it to death. The blended balayage has lifted my natural blonde and was a surprisingly quick process – I was in and out in two hours!
My favourite part was… all the extra special customer-focused touches that Steve added to the service. He took the time to go through what colour work he has done with other clients (with plenty of pictures to show for it!) and was happy to answer any questions about the balayage process and upkeep. I particularly liked that Steve stopped midway to show what my newly cut hair looked like before the blowdry and colour.

Name & Title: Surmayee Tetarbe, Partnerships Manager
Treatment: Hot stone aromatherapy massage
My therapist was… absolutely amazing. As soon as I stepped into Indulgence, Ivy sat down with me to discuss any areas I wanted to pay special attention to, any injuries I may have had as well as getting a deeper understanding of my normal physical activities and habits to give me the most targeted massage. Nothing beats a hot stone massage for me and it is an easy massage to mess up (imagine excessively hot stones all over your body… ouch!), but Ivy was a star and I left the room feeling like my stress had literally melted away. My muscles that had previously been screaming in pain, were happy and knot-free after a quick 60-minute session.
My favourite part was… the spa facilities, which were fully separate from the haircut and colour area, meaning that I could relax in my private room in peace, without hearing the coming-and-goings of customers or stylists at the salon. It felt very private and luxurious, despite Indulgence being smack bang in the middle of a busy street in Central.

Name & Title: Mansha Channa, Sassy Mama Partnerships Manager
Treatment: Thalgo Source Marine Ritual Facial
My therapist was… thorough, friendly and professional. After a quick skin assessment, she recommended the Thalgo Source Marine Ritual Facial and adapted it to cater to exactly what my skin needed.
My favourite part was… getting to relax. The treatment was so relaxing that I dozed off (talk about getting some beauty sleep!). Indulgence is an oasis that engulfs you in a sense of calm the minute you walk in. My skin was whipped into shape and I walked out feeling well rested with radiant, glowing skin that didn’t need to be concealed with any makeup. I will certainly be booking regular visits.
