My hair is one problem area that I really want to fix. No matter what clothes I wear, I do not feel as confident as before because my hair is a mess, always dried by wind. So when my mom told me that she will have her hair rebonded again, I said I want one as well.
Last December we went to Victor Ortega Salon in their Boni branch. This is also where my sister Gabby had her hair done. My mom previously had her rebonded at David’s Salon. Gabby convinced her that it is no longer practical because their charge is too expensive.
Prior to our makeover day, my mom kept on telling me to reserve for an appointment but i hesitated. We arrived at the salon at around 10am. I was so surprised to see more than 20 ladies being done already! We thought we would be waiting for a while to be attended to. But after we filled up an information sheet, Cenen, our stylist, called my mom and the process began.
In between chemical application to our hair, they rinse it, blow dry, then iron. The whole shebang lasted for five hours. Cenen and his juniour stylists handled our hair very carefully, answering every question I have.
Everyone in the salon, stylist and receptionist alike, were very busy but they managed to greet all who came in with a warm smile. Even that stylist with an angry aura greeted people and busied himself with her girls.
After the hair makeover, my mom and I concluded that the visit was worth it. I opted for a hair rebond with Kerastase Vita Cement treatment. The whole thing cost me PhP2000 ($47), exclusive of tip.
