Growing my hair for quite some time now because I want to have it curled. Yes, you
heard read it right. After some dilly dallying, and some inspiration, I finally set that appointment.
Saturday at 3:50pm, we arrived just in time for our appointment of 4pm. Upon entering the salon, we were greeted by everyone.
We were told to seat and wait. The salon is buzzing. I counted 6 heads on different stages of perming. This salon is known for its no nonsense service and their oh so beautiful curls. I was really definite on getting permed, while my mother in law, who is beginning to be my beauty bestie, opted to have her hair cut and colored.
After waiting for a few minutes, finally called for shampoo, then they applied some hair protectant creams. Mr Shin styled my hair and texturized it. I had healthy hair so I am free to choose the size of curls I want.
I chose the medium curls so that my curls will last longer. The curls will get bigger as time goes so my curls will just transform from medium curls to big curls until I have it cut.
They applied some medicines again, left for some minutes. Shampooed. Then they put some rollers and waited for Mr Shin to put the final rollers.
After the rollers, I was now wired. Heavier than it looks but it’s ok.
Left me to finish a magazine of Cosmopolitan Philippines.
And then I was off to the finishing stage of my digiperm.
Oh my, it was love at first sight. The sight of my first curls made me really so happy.
What’s good about the salon, they teach you how to maintain your curls. Twist and scrunch? Not all the time. More like scrunch and scrunch.
I’ll post a maintenance guide on my next post which you can read here.
The salon is owned and ran by Mr Shin, a Korean who studied in Japan, hence the Nippongo Language. He is a cool guy, literally! He doesn’t get fazed by all these heads simultaneously getting beautified. Oh and did I mention that he is the only stylist there? He just has a special crew who takes his instructions by heart. They are all knowledgeable and very very friendly.
He has an assistant who translates his instructions and communicates with the clients. I think most of the staff there understands basic Japanese already.
I thought Mr Shin is so serious but his fun side finally surfaced when we asked for a groufie with him. And it’s because we were 2 of the last 3 clients left.
I loved how my curls turned out. Soft and bouncy and manageable.
Mommy also loved her cut and the color. She wanted a bouncy cut and Mr Shin delivered. It’s very seldom that she gets satisfied with what a stylist does to her hair.
My beautiful curls, all for Php3,700.00 and my mom’s hair cut and color for Php3,000.00. That is so affordable compared to some other salons that has “names” already and located at the malls.
Also, another thing. I love everyone here. Everyone is so attentive to clients’ needs, they make sure you keep your hands inside the gown and close your eyes when they apply some medicines, they help you with your things and they are so well coordinated. I could go on and on, super duper excellent service! Never have I experienced anything like this!
