I am a Hair Salon hopper and the longest hair salon I kept my loyalty with is Studio 546 in 5F Shanrila Plaza Mall, Mandaluyong City. I consider Studio 546 as my “home” salon enjoying the loyalty discount and the celebrity rumors from my favorite stylist Je-Ho. The most expensive hair cut probably I had was here in the Philippines, somewhere in Greenhills, it sounds Japanese and I paid for 3,500 Pesos just for a haircut! He was a Japanese Stylist claimed to be expert in New York and why are they so expensive? He got this Japanese way of hair washing which is really relaxing and unique. It is similar to a head massage while shampooing your hair and it really feels good. Anyway, my grooming day depends on my moods and where I am on that day when I thought of a hair cut. Most often, I am preparing for an activity or gathering like work, party, reunions, or just the feel-good day.
My first try of Essensuals was in Trinoma and I had their Senior Stylist direct from New York City. It was like an interview-grooming day session for I have missed traveling to New York and I want to find out his Hair Art Styling goals for the Pinoys and Pinays. It was my first time to be introduced to how Essensual work as a company, what kind of trainings he did and his plans for the Philippines franchise, and how we Filipinos can be a hair style mecca of Asia .. Wow! I am definitely impressed. Kudos to you and still I kept my grooming day with Essensual in MegaMall Atrium.
