Look Your Summer Best Get a head-to-toe makeover with the help of these beauty hotspots in the Metro South
Starting 2012 with the previous year’s stress and worry literally on your head and hair, is not a pretty sight nor an ideal way to begin the year. Allow your tresses time for a breather, and drop by Fab Salon for a full Keratin Miracle Treatment (starts at P1,200). The whole process of the treatment is a relaxing treat in itself as the cream is massaged onto your scalp and hair. This part of the treatment takes about 10-15 minutes depending on the length of your hair. Afterwards, your hair will be placed under a heated device similar to the one used for a hot oil treatment. Then, your hair is rinsed and towel- or hair-dried depending on your preference. Once your hair is dry, you’ll notice that it’s shinier, lighter, and softer. Another must-try hair treatment is the Energizing Treatment (P1,500). This treatment re-energizes your hair by treating any scalp problems you may have. It cleanses and refreshes your scalp from dirt, grime, a product residue and build-up. The result is a a cleaner feeling scalp and healthy-looking hair. If you’re planning to have your hair styled and cut, then it would be best to, at the very least, have an idea of the new hairstyle or cut you envision. It’s standard at Fab Salon though that you consult with the professional and experienced stylist you’re assigned, so that he or she can determine which cut best suits you, your face shape, and your lifestyle. Hair cuts cost P300, while hair styling costs P750. If you wish to color your hair, they offer full-service color (starts at P1,300), gloss color (starts at P1,500), color correction (starts at P1,500), and retouching (starts at P900). Other services like mani-pedis (P450), eyelash extension (P500), and others are also available. – Ruth Kairuz
