BWL Salon

As my hair has its own life even if blow dried, I have been longing to have it straightened for a few months now.  I don’t have curly or kinky hair, it’s a little bit wavy and tends to get dry sometimes.  So when I heard that my cousin had her hair done, beautifully, at a promo price, I didn’t hesitate anymore!

I don’t usually spend so much on my hair.  I get Php50.00 haircuts at a salon in Kalentong, near the palengke (market).  I am not maarte in that part.  But even with the Php 50.00 budget, I still get lots of compliments for my hair cut!  Isn’t that the best deal?

I wanted a wash and wear hair, that’s the reason I had my hair cut short.  I am a breastfeeding mother and I don’t have all the time in the world.  In the morning, I pump before I leave for office.  I usually choose sleeping late than getting up early just to fix my hair.  But with my hair always flying away, I don’t have a choice but to make time for it.  Lately, since I still don’t have time, I bring my blower in the office and blow my hair there.  Still, it flies away.

So, hearing about BWL Salon is like a gift for my birthday.  My birthday is June 11.  I was scheduled for June 12, it’s Independence Day so there’s no work.  Fortunately, hubby didn’t have a schedule that day also.   I was free to go!

I got there around 11am.  Just in time for my appointment.  They asked me what I want to be done to my hair.  I was there for the IVL, it’s Ionic Volume Treatment, they told me it’s milder than Hair Rebond.  It doesn’t make your hair look like walis! They offered Hair Color at a promo price also.  Since it’s my birthday gift for myself, I decided to splurge a little.

It took 4.5 hours all in all to get everything done!  I brought a book (a gift for my birthday) because I know it’s gonna be a long process!  But I only read a few chapters because they played “I-Vice Ganda mo ako sa Araneta!”  It’s so funny but I can’t hear some line because they were blow drying my hair!  I am so happy with the results!  Even the color, I really like.

Here are some photos of the salon!  I love the interior! It’s all white but they used colorful stickers!  I love how they used the leafy stickers and little flowery 2d stickers to add to that cozy feel!  I also love their chandelier!

Oh!  Maybe you’re asking for the result of my IVL.  See the before and after!  You’ll be amazed!  The Before Photo was taken while Roma, my stylist, was already clipping and dividing my hair into sections.  Roma also gave me a free Bangs Haircut!

Because of the IVL, my Php50.00 hair cut looked more elegant 

I also want to take note of Jeffrey (I hope I got it right!) I think he’s the Manager there.  He’s very attentive to clients, he’s charming and he’s very hands-on!  All I want in a salon!  I give this salon 10 out of 10!  Good service! Nice people!  I’ll be back, if not sooner, later!

I had 3 hours worth of salon pampering! I love my new hair, my new hair color – my new look!  This deal is so worth it!

I chose this salon because it’s just a 5 to 10 minute drive from our house.  Being a mom to a 1 and a half month old baby, I couldn’t go somewhere far.  I took the risk of not knowing if the hairstylist was good enough.  All I wanted was to have my hair cut in a new style and have it colored.

I knew that the salon’s newly opened.  We always pass by it when we’re on our way home from Greenhills.  When I called yesterday to make my appointment, the one who answered my call made it easy.  I called up earlier today to change my schedule into a later hour, afraid that I might be scratched off my appointment.  Again, the one who answered didn’t make it hard for me.

I was really excited when I left the house.  I have with my Itouch a picture of the hairstyle I want.  I have in my mind the hair color I want.  When I got to the salon, I was greeted with smiles. The owner was on her way out, but she also gave a sweet smile.  

 I gave my voucher and showed my ID.  After that, I was asked by the senior stylist what color I prefer.  He suggested to mix 2 shades, and I loved how it turned out.  Not so loud blonde, but not so dull brown.  It’s just the right mix.

After choosing my hair color, I showed him the hairstyle I want.  He agreed and he asked one of the staff to shampoo my hair.  He cut my hair slowly and tediously, I’d think.  He made sure that the ends of my hair are cut evenly.  I liked his style actually.  We proceeded with hair color.  Applied the dye in 2 steps.  First, only the “body” of my hair was covered.  Second, he applied all over the hair till the “roots.”  Waited for around an hour for this to finish.  After this, my hair was rinsed, shampooed and applied treatment.  Came with head massage also.  Chit chatted for awhile with the one massaging my hair.  I got back to my seat and my hair was blow dried.  He made the final trimmings and voila! I love my new look!

I would definitely recommend this salon.  Not only do they have a  nice and clean salon, they also have friendly staff who provides good service.  It’s worth all the moolah you’ll spend. Stars for them? 5 of 5

PS. Had to pay additional Php 100.o0 for the hair cut, because what’s included in the deal was only a trim.  This was agreed upon before we started.  Php 549.00 + Php 100.00 = Php 649.00, the amount is still a steal.
