Hair Shaft Podium: Your Next-To-Being-a-Star Salon!

Ever since, I've been telling you guys here in my blog that I'm not really after those things that will make me beautiful, but as time passes, I realized it's not really about giving a damn about what the others might say about you. But what really matters is what really makes you feel or look good.

Honestly I'm kind of a late-bloomer when it come to those to going to skin clinics, hair salons and spas. it has just been now that I was able to accept the fact that I also need to reward myself the pampering it needs.

Most of the people I know always says that  they go to the spa to reward or pamper themselves. My opinion about that (before) is why spend lots of money going to a spa or salon when you can relax at the comforts of your home. My thinking is always like that because husband is the only one that has a job in the family and it kind of makes me guilty when I ever the thought of spending his hard-earned money to those kind of stuff.

But lately,been feeling a little or maybe its just about my hormones getting on me, I feel "awfully" ugly. I know..I know you could say that I am again my 'overly-reacting self". To the point that I'm actually browsing some of the group-buying sites online for the cheapest deal there is about "Hair-Rebonding".

You might ask why Hair-Rebonding ? Why not a deal about Skin whitening (since I have dark-skin)? Well for those who are not that close to me; I already have straight hair since birth (and until now...) but its ends always flies away. And one thing more, I love my long hair. Though it wasn't the shiniest but I give a damn about it. Believe it or not but I am vain when it comes to my precious mane. Like my hair has the biggest consumption of our shampoo supply.

So to cut it short from there. I want my hair to look more straighter but the problem again is I can't seem to trust the deals I've seen online. And I don't want to waste the money I've save up. Good thing is a friend suggested that I try this Hair Salon. She has tried this salon already since it's very evident with her new hair color. She suggested that I check HairShaft Podium.

Uhmm..HairShaft Podium? Just hearing the salon's name helped grew the excitement in me. So after my friend referred it, wasted no time and went there the next day.

HairShaft Podium is locate at the 3rd level of The Podium in Ortigas, Pasig City.
The place is very spacious and the staff are very courteous.

Although there's "tiny-bit" of apprehension, I still manged to walk inside effortlessly. And honestly I'm impressed because their stylists are able to "walk-the-talk". Their Their stylist are even fashionable; even sending me the impression that I'm in good hands, ooopss , My hair, that is :) .

I find this salon fabulous to the extent that even I have not tried their treatments during that time, the impression is "I'll walk out of this place looking more fab!" (that's the spirit, right!?).

This was my photo when I was seated to start the treatments. First, they ask me what I want. I told them that I want a "Hair Rebond" treatment but instead they suggested that I try their new treatment, the Permanent Blow-Dry.

Permanent Blow-Dry is a new technology that will soon replace the Hair Rebonding system. Actually I was a bit surprise because it only took us and hour and a half based on estimation. I thought it will takes us hours because the usual rebonding procedure will take almost 5 hours or so, depends on how thick your hair is.

After the "Permanent Blow-Dry" treatment, next step is Hair Color. I had to re-touch my hair color again because the white hair are showing again. So I chose "light brown" to "touch-up" the white hair that are beginning to show. Unfortunately it is in our genes that white hair starts to grow in our early 30's. My mom  has this stage too when she was my age. So the solution if you don't want your white hair showing-up, go to a salon and seek professional advice.

A collage I made for the whole procedure that I have undergone. One thing that I've learned is that when one decides to visit a salon, one must take the whole day off (if you are working) to enjoy fully the experience. I really felt pampered that night (I visited it on a Monday afternoon and finished almost 10pm). It was really all worth it.

And I like to commend my their staff and most especially my Stylist who was very patient with all the questions I asked him and me being so talkative during the whole treatment. I could not thank him more than enough most especially the owner who was very kind and humble himself.

This is me with my stylist for that night, MIGUEL. I hope you guys try to check out HAIR SHAFT Salon Podium branch. Before I actually went to the salon that day, of course I want to know the work and portfolio of those who are working at HAIR SHAFT. And even the stylists are so fashionable and good at their respective crafts other from being in the salon business. I will update this post once I got a heads-up from one of their stylists if I can post about it here on my blog.
