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.

  2. Madam,

    Medyo worried lang ako. Baka kasi required putulan yung hair kaya ganoon yung price nya? Kasi plan ko lang talagang magpakulay for my upcoming wedding. So medyo nag-aalangan ako. Pero I’ll try to dropby sa isa sa target na branch ko. Pero kakalokang magbasa ng comments. Mas nag-alala ako Lalo. Lol

  3. I was planning to buy pa nmn this brazilian blow dry in MP, glad i run into this.
    Well, i guess i’ll go back in Aaron Yo salon in ortigas. I had my digiperm there last 2013, I can say that I am very satisfied although the stylist who did my hair was very young, petite, lesbian(no offense). And there was an extra 1000 for the wax or cream and haircut that she had to put, although it is optional if you want to have it.

  4. I purchased a haircolor voucher and availed it at MPS Kalentong. I was super nervous adter reading here the bad experiences of some users in other branches. Anyway i still gave it a try kasi sayang unbinayad ko.

    Here’s an honest review: i called 2 days ahead and i was told na full n ung salon with appointments. I insisted politely if kaya ng saturday, the receptionist named Karen said i can go at around 4pm para sure n may open slot. When i got there, the store door said “closed” kahitmay dalawang tao sa loob. So i asked. They immediately and nicely accomodated me. Machika yung stylist ko, very friendly. Habang ginagawa yung hair ko ng junior stylist (Che) i told here na maraming bad reviews sa ibang branch ng MPS. Masiyahin si ate girl kaya ngumisi lang. tapos nagkwentuhan p kami ng lovelife. 🙂 maya maya may dalawang metrodeal costumers n magpapahair color din. Nakita ko na nastress si stylist pero inaccomodate parin niya kasi nasa appointment book. All in all, nakita ko yung hard work ni ate habang sabay sabay kaming tatlo kinukulayan.

    TAKE NOTE: not even once na minadali or naging lousy si stylist sa process. No signs of nagmamadali or tinatamad. I have a really thick remy hair. It took her 4 bottles of hair dye just to make the color show up s buhok ko. My hair is up to the mid of my back. Naexperience ko na sa ibang salons na naiirita ung mga gay stylists sa hair ko dahil sa haba, kapal at sobrang itim. The stylist in MPS Kalentong was very professional about it. And finally, after 4 hours, i went out happy. Pantay yung color kahit sipat sipatin ng boyfriend ko uung scalp ko. Hahaha.

    Overall i am very pleased with MPS Kalentong. I think they are pretty decent and the staff really do care about their work and salon image. I would recommend it to polite and respecting costumers.

  5. Glad you had a good experience in MPS Kalentong. As I have always said before, salons will be different depending on how it is being managed and of the people working there.

  6. Hello Ms.Sassy ang ganda ng Review mu Sa MPS.KALENTONG branch curious din tuloy aku heheheh kaso di aku ganun ka familiar sa location panu po mkpunta dun from MRT.QUEZON AVE?

  7. Hi Chay. Thank you for dropping by. My review was dated a few years back na and I haven’t gone back since then. But just last year, a reader also posted her very good review about MPS Kalentong, so I guess their service hasn’t changed since.

    Please try to call them first and have an appointment so as to not hassle you. Not good with directions but here’s an insight though. You could go down at MRT Shaw, then take the jeep at Starmall. Then maybe take the jeep until Kalentong. Go down at an intersection with Jollibee, KFC and a BDO, then walk towards the way going to San Juan. On the left side, MPS is located.

    Thanks again! Hope I was able to help you. Good Luck!
