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.
