Clean Shave/Massage in Kolkata (West Bengal) – How much I Paid?

The very first thing I did after settling down at Bubble Beds (Backpacker’s Hostel in South Kolkata) was a clean shave & massage.

Grand Salon (air-conditioned) is situated approx. 50 meters from the hostel on the left-hand side.

Subir Das is the owner of the more than 100 years old salon, started by his grandfather.

Timings: 8:30 am – 8:00 pm

Holiday: Thursday

And the question – How much do I pay for a clean shave and head massage?

I paid Rs. 40 for Gillette Shaving Foam clean shave and for head/shoulder/arms/back massage with Emami 7 Oils in One Non-Sticky Hair Oil, I paid – Rs. 60.

Out of curiosity, I questioned – How much for hair dye for men?

  • L’Oréal Hair Colour – Rs. 350
  • Garnier Hair Colour – Rs. 250

Kolkata is not expensive – a thought. The journey continues..
