The Royal Treatment
Feel right at home at Ilukroon beauty salon.
Ilukroon, or beauty crown as it translates into English recent- ly moved this summer to a more convenient city centre location. “We have moved into our new space and settled right in. You won’t miss the bright pink sign outside either,” explains Ahti Aavik, owner and manager at Ilukroon. I had my haircut at Ilukroon, along with a moisturising hair mask. My stylist, Vaido told me, “After the summer it’s important to moisturise your hair, as it tends to dry out from sun exposure.” The before and after feeling of my hair was astonishing. It wasn’t until after, when I ran my fingers through my silky soft hair that I realised just how dry it had been. Vaido has been cutting hair for two years now, and already has a long list of regular clients that have followed him to Ilukroon’s new location. “We like to have fun with our clients, and make sure they are enjoying their time while they are here. We are chatty, we want to hear about your day,” Ahti told me as I was waiting for my mask to set. Ilukroon only uses top salon products like Wella and Sebas- tian for hair colouring and washing. But you won’t notice this in the price. Hair cutting and styling prices are very reasonable and competitive. “We want to offer top quality services, but at an affordable price,” explains Ahti. In addition to hairstyling, Ilukroon also offers other salon procedures. Facials, manicures and pedicures, waxing, and a long list of massages are on offer. Book your appointment in advance, but walkins are also welcome.
