Consider a haircut and head massage (Rs 400) at this utterly bizarre salon, a monument to kitsch. Every inch is covered in decorative painting, fake flowers, sequins, filigree, stained glass or tinsel garlands, and at the back of the salon, up towards the faux-sky ceiling, is an interfaith shrine, from where Durga, Mary and the Buddha keep an eye on things.
