I wasn’t able to write my experience when I had my hair colored a few months ago, so let me give a quick description of my experience.
It was April of this year when my sister and I decided to have our hair colored. At first, I couldn’t decide where to go. I wanted to try a new salon, a cheaper one but would give the same or even better service than where I usually have my hair done. I was also trying to see if I could get a good deal from group buying sites. Then, I chanced upon this almost new salon in Quezon City.
The Blounge, is a new high-tech beauty salon in the metro. Why high-tech you would ask? Well, aside from the savvy-tech feel of the interiors of the place, you get to use gadgets such as an iPad while you’re having your hair or nails done. The salon is Wi-Fi connected so you can even use your own gadgets and stay connected even if you’re staying at the salon for several hours.
Since I was treating my sister to this “hair makeover”, I got to pick the place. From reading reviews online, I finally decided to try The Blounge in Quezon City.
The place was not hard to find since it’s just in front of ABS-CBN’s building and you will immediately see their signboard. It is situated in the 2nd floor of Hodge Podge building at Mother Ignacia street. At the bottom of the stairs going to the salon, they already placed a huge price list of their services which I think is great because you already get an idea of their services even before you went up there.
When we went in, we were greeted warmly with their staff. It was lunch time then on a weekday and there were no other customers when we got there. We were immediately seated and was offered drinks and the girl from the frontdesk gave us a copy of their services. We already knew what we wanted done. My sister got their beauty package “Indulge Me For a Moment” which consists of a full head color plus a keratin treatment and a choice of foot spa or manicure/pedicure. For me, I got the “Today’s Headlights” which is a full head color plus highlights and also a choice of foot spa or manicure/pedicure.
I forgot the name of the head stylist who assisted us. Anyway, our makeover started. Since I was having highlights, mine took a lot longer to finish. My sister was already having her nails done while I was still having all those foils stuck in my hair. Haha! After all the foils were already in place and needs to be there for awhile, they started my foot spa (I opted for this since I haven’t had a foot spa for quite some time now). It was pretty relaxing, until the girl doing my spa reached the ticklish part of my foot. Makes me squirm in my seat. But the tickly part was worth it since after the foot spa, my feet feels really good.
After that, they continued with my hair color and a few more minutes, tadah!! I have a nice-looking hair color with awesome highlights. I forgot the exact color that I requested for the hair color and highlights (sorry about that).
Visit their site at http://www.theblounge.net/ or their salon at Mother Ignacia St. Quezon City. The place by the way is owned by news anchor Anthony Taberna and his wife.
Prepping for the start of my highlights.
