Ananda Ferdí: Best hairdresser and lovely place

One of the unavoidable visits after the summer is the hairdressing salon. With the sun, the swimming pools and the sea, the hair gets damaged. I suppose that you have your trusted hairdresser, but I do not want to stop recommending a wonderful place called Ananda Ferdí

It's recently opened and you'll find it in Joaquin Costa Street. The truth is that rarely will you find yourself in such an original beauty salon, the architecture is brutal.

High ceilings, ropes that separate the spaces and some furniture last design, that give a delicate atmosphere in beige and white colors as all the assistants of Rosi Fernandez, the owner, are dressed. The studio that designed it is called Zinc and I'm going to keep track of them.

mani and pedicure
In the washing space, you find yourself looking at fresh flowers on the ceiling, which relaxes enormously along with the wonderful massage they give you. Rosi, is a great professional, and is dedicated to take care of one by one to the clients who come, from women, gentlemen and small children. The prices are not the cheapest, but the experience lived and how happy you go with the cut or the highlights, compensate completely.

The view when they wash your hair

I leave you a few photos of the space to see what I'm talking about and do not hesitate to tell them if you're going to recommend you from My Little Madrid.

Una de las visitas inevitables después del verano es la peluquería. Con el sol, las piscinas y el mar, el pelo se estropea. Supongo que tendrás tu peluquería de confianza, pero no quiero dejar de recomendarte una maravilla de sitio que se llama Ananda Ferdí.

Esta recién inaugurado y lo encontraras en la calle Joaquin Costa. La verdad que pocas veces te encontrarás en un salón de belleza tan original, la arquitectura es brutal. Techos altos, cuerdas que separan los espacios y unos muebles ultimo diseño, que dan un ambiente delicado en colores beige y blanco como van vestidas todas las asistentes de Rosi Fernandez, la dueña. El estudio que lo ha diseñado se llama Zinc y voy a seguirles la pista.

En el espacio de lavado, te encuentras mirando flores frescas en el techo, lo cual relaja enormemente junto con el maravilloso masaje que te dan. Rosi, es una grandísima profesional, y se dedica a cuidar una a una a los clientes que vienen, desde mujeres, señores y niños pequeños. Los precios no son los mas baratos, pero la experiencia vivida y lo feliz que te vas con el corte o las mechas, lo compensan completamente.

Te dejo unas fotos del espacio para que veas de que hablo y no dudes en decirles si vas que te lo hemos recomendado desde My Little Madrid.

Five Must Does in Madrid this Christmas

Decorate your home - Build your own Madrilenian nativity scene.
First go to plaza Mayor to buy figurines. The essential figurines are: Mary, Joseph, baby Jesus, cow and donkey, angel, some shepherds and the three wise men.
A tip: do not buy the caganet it is not a local figurine.
Another tip: While in plaza Mayor take advantage to have a Christmas chocolate con churros at Chocolatería San Gines.
Then go to your nearby park and pick some moss, stones, twigs, etc.
Find a good spot in your house far from pets. Do not forget to build up a river with kitchen foil and to add some lighting that will make the joy of the little ones.
Visit a museum but make sure you buy your tickets online beforehand.
Our choice :
- Clara Peeters at Museo del Prado from 25th October 2016 to 19th February 2017.
- Renoir at Thyssen Bornemisza Museum from 18th October 2016 to 22th January 2017.
- Robert Doisneau – la Belleza de lo Cotidiano at Fundación Canal from 6th October 2016to 8th January 2017.

Treat your belly and go for nice healthy food.
Our choice:
- Bump and Green
- Hermosos y Malditos
- Nubel
- La Pagoda
- Amazónico

Treat your look. Since you are not going to start a diet go for a facial at Skininc, a massage at Assari or a walk at the Retiro Park.

Have crazy amusement. Go for a show with dinner to the newly revamped Florida Retiro, depending on the day you can choose a musical show or jazz music, and after 01:30 a.m. lively disco and dancing.

And a final suggestion outside the list: stay at home, relax and watch a nice TV series with a glass of Spanish wine avoiding the masses.

Best wishes to all of you from My Little Madrid!!

Smiling, Get a Perfect Smile!

Inés de la Fressange, former french model, one of the most elegant people I know, quotes in her book, “La Parisienne”, “Don’t go bankrupt buying expensive face creams, the best beauty parlor is your local dentist. An attractive smile and great teeth are the best way to forgive and forget the rest”! 
I couldn’t agree more, and last month I went for a complete teeth cleaning and invested in whitening my teeth.

SKINC- Skin Supplement Beauty Bar

On the Plaza de Santa Ana, inside the well known Hotel ME Santa Ana (Meliá Hotels) you can peek through the window a very elegant, modern, clean and polished white bar with many colourful little bottles. I was intrigued to know what it was about... and the story behind it made me even more attracted. It is the Skin Supplement Beauty Bar, a concept created by a wonderful lady named Sabrina Tan.

Beauty for chest and facial wrinkles

Today something different, a cool hint! tested and really working!
I recently bought this amazing product directly in Madrid from Padbeauty, got it in two days, used it right away and it does work! 
I tried both products one for chest wrinkles and one for facial wrinkles. They are both designed to reduce existing wrinkles and expression lines and prevent new ones from forming. You wear them while sleeping or hours before a party and the result is as you see in the pictures. No additives, fillers, latex or adhesives are used. Pads may be washed without losing their adhesive quality and usually last 30 days depending on usage time and skin conditions.
Always liked before and after photos

(New address) Villanueva 5 
Today I have been pampered at Rossano Ferretti's hairdressing salon by Enzo and the girls. Great start!!! The head stylist; Claudio, will improve your look while seducing you with his Italian male charm. Rossano Ferretti is an international hairdresser born in Italy with salons in Parma, Verona, Chiavari, Madrid, Venice, Vienna, Rome, Milan, Bologna, Belgrade, Miami, Mumbai, Paris and New York . Its key to the success is the creation of his own method. The haircut that falls naturally rejecting standardization. No one will notice you get out of a salon, they'll notice you look gorgeous not knowing why. I love their haircuts but also their natural dying colors. And best of all the exquisite ways they have with clientele!!!
