Their gala event ‘Hit the Red Carpet,’ a night of fashion, live acts, music, dance and all the glitz and glamour of the trade, is designed for the ultimate ‘party goers’ .Rumours is set to take the city by storm on August 22(Saturday) at the iconic British heritage tea site of Harrison’s on Darley Road, Colombo 10. With just a few days to go, the countdown is on to hit the red carpet with street stalls, cocktail bars and partying till dawn with YES FM’s Dominic and Asanka and Legends DJ Niranjan.
Known as a trendsetter, Rumours is not a stranger to men’s fashions. They say that men in Colombo, like those everywhere else in the world, are more conscious about their looks than ever before. Gone are the days when the rough, tough and John Wayne ruggedness won the day. It is the metrosexual man of this generation that the world seems to find attractive and the men in Colombo are determined to keep up with the times, or so says Chantal Cook, Consultant at Rumours Salon, which counts over three decades of experience in the hair and beauty business. She says that the local men are serious about grooming and do not hesitate to go to the extent of seeking professional assistance and expertise in getting it right.
According to Chantal, men walking into the salon for haircuts, other hair-related treatments as well as manicures, pedicures are a common occurrence. She says foot massages are very popular amongst both sexes as they relieve the stress of busy everyday life. Another significant demand is for men’s facials, “today’s men are conscious and aware of the importance of presenting a good appearance both in their personal and business lives and it is encouraging that they want healthy, youthful looking skin as much as a woman would,”says Chantal adding that Rumours has the expertise to handle any need modern trends require.
