So, my friend from LA and her boyfriend (who owns Express Salon in BF Homes) recently opened a new salon along Pasay Road in Makati just across The Residences Condo. I visited 2 days ago and had a hair spa treatment – a Keratin Essence hydrating masque treatment (for deep strand repair with hydro-keratin complex). They use only the best brands and for this, it was a Schwarzkopf hydrating cream.
It was a pleasant experience. Their staff, Ms. Faith, gave me a gooooood back and neck massage and wow it was definitely relaxing. Really good service, I can see that they trained their staff well. So if you are in the area, or you work or live in Makati, do drop by Design Studio. They currently have a 30% OFF promo since they just opened, so take advantage of this and book your appointment now : )

New Year, New Hair

January 10, 2013

The start of a new year is the perfect time to do something new and different. So without any hesitation, I finally chopped off my long locks. (Actually, I could not wait any longer so I had my hair cut slightly before the new year!)

I went to my friend’s salon, Express Salon in BF Homes Parañaque the same salon that permed my hair months back and told Japanese Precision Cutter Shun-san that I wanted this cut.

Just in time for Les Miserable!

It was quite an exciting moment : )

Hair cut

Good bye 2011 and 2012!!!

They say when you change your hair, you change your life. True enough, I feel different in a good way. But that’s me… always embracing change. This was not the first time I cut my hair really short, though this hair cut is probably the shortest.

So happy no bad hair day to me! At least for the next 1 to 2 months : )

I had a hair cut.

November 26, 2009

Initially, I wanted to grow my hair really long, like up until the waist. But I discovered a Japanese salon located 5 minutes away from my flat.

It took me 1 phone call and a few pages from The next thing I know, I was having my hair examined by Ryoko Yasuda in Sei Salon. She’s a sweetie. I wanted Agyness’ new cut which I found online:

But Ryoko educated me on my face shape and how I should choose cuts that will give a better structure on my soft asian features. So, instead, I got new fringes and a short bob. Happy nevertheless.

I like Ryoko, she was so nice and sweet. She showed me ways on how I can style my new hair. The haircut was pretty expensive but it was a good experience overall.
