molar Berlin – From Vidal Sassoon and Aveda on to Bleibtreustraße
After Andreas Kurkowitz did a brilliant job dying my hair back into shape last week, I decided it was also time for a new cut. Ideally at another hair virtuoso! I’d heard a lot about molar Berlin on Bleibtreustraße so I decided to take a shot.
Both owners and creatives, Kathrin Zenk and Sven Henninges, had learned and worked their craft at Vidal Sassoon in Frankfurt. They then went on to work for Aveda in Berlin, Zenk as manager, Henninges as Artistic Director. molar Berlin is their very own perfected work environment, and at the most beautiful Savignyplatz location at that.
molar is Spanish and translates into ‘to please’ and since the first impression is always important they really did put much effort into details in order to please your eye. The studio practically seduces the customers to enter, almost as if it’s telling them to look at its beauty. And it’s beautiful indeed!
A stylist who was part of Wunderkind’s team for a long time, really turned this into something special. It feels a lot more like a living room than a hairdresser, and I immediately feel like I’m in good hands. It doesn’t even seem like it’s a first.
I was welcomed with open arms by Kathrin Zenk. We discussed what should be done, she examined crowns and other characteristics of my hair, explained eloquently and advised patiently and went on with a relaxing scalp massage.
molar Berlin insists on a calm process, no tension or hectic whatsoever. There’s a very harmonious atmosphere among all the coworkers, just like I love it. So much so, that I almost forgot about my hair. Even when it’s actually worth to watch Zenk work her magic, she truly masters her craft.
Even the blow-drying! That’s what separates the wheat from the chaff as far as I’m concerned. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve left the hairdresser’s with a good cut styled badly. A problem most people will be familiar with. But this time I’m going home wholly satisfied and happy as a clam. I’ll be back, molar!
