This was how I looked like in December 2012, after a hair cut:
Studio 546. It is now my favorite salon.
The irony of it all was that I hated that cut at first because when you have curly hair and ask for shoulder length, and they cut it right at the shoulder...well, it's not going to be shoulder-length when it dries up.
Newly cut hair in September 2011:
I am swearing off Tony and Jackey because honestly, a good cut should last for a long time. If I had to go back for another haircut in a couple of months, that's not good. Think about the rare spare time and the money you'd lose. Also, it irks me that when I entered Tony and Jackey, the first thing the receptionist said was, "Rebond?"
Why do these people keep assuming that just because I have unwieldy curly hair, I'd want to straighten it. I've been rebond-free for the last 4 years (after 8 years of doing it twice a year), and I ain't never coming back, lady! Ikulot salot mo yang mukha mo!
My other option, and easiest to visit, is Park Jun Salon. Except, you know...I went on the "Poverty Diet" for a reason. My stylist at Park Jun is Maiah Noh, whose talent fee is P1,200. Meep!!
Anyway, I had decided for the last month to have my hair cut at Studio 546. Except time was not on my side. Last Wednesday, on a whim (and totally not planned in my calendar), I decided to get a haircut -- by hook or by crook -- on my way from UP to Benilde. Hehe.
Goodness, look at all that hair! All mine! I could have sold these snippets. Haha!
I wanted bangs but Sherwin (he's one of the highest ranking, I think) said that it should be relaxed because curly bangs look weird. Didn't have the time for that (needed to run to Benilde) so I settled for just the regular layered haircut.
I'll give you an example of the treatment I received on that same day:
This Benilde guard was flirting with a girl and I couldn't pass through the exit. I was trying to see if I could pass through the exit beside it and this other guard rudely said, "Anong bang pinagagawa mo!?"
Luckily, my contralto voice resonates with authority (especially when deadly calm) and they quickly realized that I was not a student: "Nakaharang tong isa habang nakikipaglandian sa studyante." Realizing that I was a faculty member, they immediately apologized, even rambling that it wasn't a student but a former female guard that the other one was flirting with. Still, that was stressful.
Anyway, I talk too much. Hahahaha! This is how my hair looks like now that I have showered:
I think I will stick to Studio 546, even if it's a little out of the way for me. So yay!
For those who wish to skip my rambling and go straight to the location:
Shangri-la Plaza Mall 5th Level,
EDSA cor. Shaw Blvd.
