Karachites tend to pick salons according to the salon specialty. A salon in KHI will become known for certain treatments and that becomes the haven for the girls in Defence. Salons and their specialties are.


One of Defence’s first salons, Neelos has been a go-to parlour for decades. It’s fantastic for blowdries but more so for waxing. Our go-to girl is Mary for waxing and facials.


Bina Khan Salon

Oh my God. Razia is legendary for eye brows at Bina Khan’s salon. She’s obsessively discussed on Facebook groups as well. We tried her and she definitely knows what she’s doing.


Expensive. But if you want a good hair color and cut, go to Adeel at Nabilas. He does a great color, knows what he’s doing and it’s nice for a splurge sometimes.

Anam Farooq Khan

Young, fun and so so lovely, Anam Farooq is our go-to for party and bridal makeup. She makes you look so good that you have no choice but to feel good. She used to be at Tariq Amin’s salon but is now working on opening her own studio.

Ellemint salon

Karachites will vouch – Ellemint’s mani-pedis are great. It’s a clean and fuss-free experience.
