I’ve been feeling BLAH of late because of things beyond my control (the TNT fiasco for one). Common sense told me to do something about it, or I will just stay in bed all day feeling pathetic. Someone in her right mind would know pampering and beautifying yourself are time-tested strategies to feel better.
Luckily, there was an offer from my hotelier-friend Pearl Peralta-Maclang to try the David’s Salon in Alabang which she recently opened with some partners at the Madison Galeries Lifestyle Mall in Alabang. I said yes excitedly as my hair needed new color and life. My crowning glory has always been my problem because it is quite unruly and frizzy. Hopefully, David’s Salon will be able to bring it back to life.
Madison Galeries Mall is a nice-looking mall along Don Jesus Boulevard in a commercial part of Alabang Hills Village. I explored it a bit where I observed a nice mix of good restaurants. Then I went up the 3rd floor to where David’s Salon was. It looked bright and welcoming.
I settled in a chair, then discussed what I wanted with the young stylist Jun. I said I wanted some color to cover my grey hair, a cut to trim my split ends and some treatment to cure my dull, lifeless hair. Jun made some suggestions too and after we agreed on a common ground, it was shampoo time 🙂
Work in progress…
The stylist noted how dry and lifeless my hair was becoming. Jun was quick to suggest their Kerastraight treatment (about P3,500). One can have a choice of their upscale smoothing treatments from Luxliss, Affinage and other quality brands. David Salon’s Kerastraight is like rebonding but at least hair doesn’t lie flat straight, and they recommend having it every three months.
The Kerastraight session lasted closely to two hours because they still had to iron my hair after applying the cream or formula.I precisely waited one week to write this review just to see how the treatment will discipline my unruly hair. I wasn’t really happy with the ‘permanent blow dry’ I had in another salon in Paranaque.
Guess what..I give the thumbs up to David’s Kerastraight treatment because my hair is unbelievably smooth and straight now. It’s my new favorite, and am glad to find a solution to my beauty ‘problem.’ Needless to say, would like to make it a part of my beauty routine from now on 🙂
Apart from the hair pampering, I availed of the manicure & pedicure services while the kids watched. For this, they use nail polishes from premium brands like Orly and OPI.
Service was excellent, and I really loved the massage one of the staff gave me in between treatments. It made me fall sleep on the chair, lol.
Anyway, next door to David’s is another salon by the same owners named Barberina. It’s so called because it’s a barber shop manned by female hairstylists and cutters. I guess it’s a totally unique experience for guys to be attended to by well-trained girls in heels. I must say it’s a must-try! 🙂
For the curious, here’s the full menu at this David’s Salon branch…
Thanks to Jesiebel, Jun and all the David’s Salon staff who attended to me that day. I had a wonderful experience and will highly recommend you to my friends in the South!
