Essensuals: Toni & Guy

I had my first hair dye treatment last Monday. 

Mother has been insisting that I get a haircut because I have been putting my hair in a bun that, according to her, made me look older than her.  I’m not sure if she’s trying to insult me or she’s flattering herself.  LOL!

We passed by Essensuals in Megamall Atrium.  Honestly, I haven’t heard about Essensuals before so we were all in unfamiliar territory.  My mother wanted to try having her quarterly hair color treatment done in Essensuals just to try it out.  I asked if I could also get my hair a new color and she said yes.  Geez, I’m so bored with my life right now, I may start coloring my nails next.

I asked someone to take a picture of the three of us – Nanay (grandma), mommy and me.  It’s not often that there are three generations of Mago having their hair done at the same time and seated accordingly. 

Service is good.  I have no complaints.  There are two attending hair dressers for each customer.  They only have 6 available seats for customers hence, making an appointment is a must during peak days like the weekends.  Having new issues of international and local magazines is also a big plus.  (I wonder where they send the old ones.)

The only thing that I didn’t like was the snotty male receptionist.  I got the feeling that he only wanted to have customers who are willing to spend a humongous amount of money just for hair treatments.  He keeps mentioning that one customer they had before who spent around Php35K for hair treatment.  I wanted to ask if the customer was a bald woman getting hair implants in their salon.  But of course, I had to stop myself because he might do something to sabotage my first hair color experience.

They served drinks while we were getting our new hair color treatment.   I chose coffee from the list I was given.  I got brewed and freshly pressed coffee.

I couldn’t really tell if there was any change in my hair color afterwards.  I was told that the longer it stayed in my hair, the lighter it would get.  As of now, I need sun’s rays in order to see that change.

  1. 35k for one customer? That’s outrageous as it sounds. How much was your hair coloring amounted to?

    I have my hair colored at Victor Ortega, the color shows right away indoors or outdoors, but your hair color I think is something different, when I colored my hair at home back in High School, I think it was from L’Oréal, the color only is prominent under sunlight, maybe yours is something similar to that.

    Pero permanent hair color naman yan sis?

      I think they have given me something temporary that will last only a few months daw sis 🙂 I’m not even sure what brand they used. I was just so excited to do something new.

  2. Wow sis. Buti ka pa nakapag-pacolor. Kahapon, while staring at myself in the big mirror at the gym, I noticed my hair color. Hindi pala super black ang buhok ko. Mejo brown pala sya. Yay, magpakulay na din kaya ako? Haha.

      I always thought a lighter color makes the hair look softer than it really is. For the longest time, I’ve been dreaming of having my hair done too but I never had the chance until a few days ago.
