Certified lash stylist and aesthetician Vera is known for the magic she does to transform ordinary lashes into powerful, attractive winks. She built that reputation not only with her loyal clients at Alonsay Salon, but also by working with people in front of the camera in the film and TV industries. That dedication to perfecting her craft is something she also has in common with the rest of the expert crew at Alonsay. At the open and airy salon, warm wood tones and live plants set the tone as certified stylists provide on-trend cuts and color using Goldwell and KMS products. Along with hair services, clients also have access to full-body waxing, Brazilian blowouts, and facials performed by certified professionals.
It goes without saying that a trip to the salon should be relaxing and devoid of scheduling nightmares. That’s why Blue Velvet Hair Salon's stylists stay late one night of the week, extending their schedules to include after-hours appointments. Regardless of whether they’re working in the morning or late evening, these stylists make sure to listen to their clients before drawing on continuing education to cut hair according to the latest trends. The staff also offers waxing treatments, spa facials, and makeup for weddings. When in need of inspiration, the stylists may take a peek at the salon’s walls, which are covered with work by local artists and the obsessive scribblings of local mystics.
At Bree Salon, a talented group of steady-handed stylists meticulously trims unruly noodle-nests into sculpted coiffures using top-notch beautification services. A woman’s haircut ($65+) or men’s haircut ($35+) adds a dash of glance-baiting pizzazz to scalp farms while carefully clipping away baseball-sized wads of gum. Faces weathered by exposure to the salty seas can clear their cheek barnacles with a facial ($75+) or a full makeup application ($80) before achieving torpedo-like levels of aerodynamics with a lip wax ($10) or chin wax ($10). Applying your Groupon to more involved treatments, such as full highlights ($120+) or a Brazilian blowout ($200–$300), will give you more time to soak up Bree Salon's relaxing atmosphere, which boasts a striking décor of rustic dark wood furnishings and fetching chandeliers that glitter with diamonds compressed from Matthew McConaughey’s golden locks.
Lay Bare Waxing Salon has locations in both the Philippines and the United States. Its technicians use cold wax—which is less painful than hot wax—and organic thread to remove unwanted hair. The soothing salons, decorated in green and brown tones, are a comfortable place to get pampered by highly experienced aestheticians. Salons are open daily.
The board-certified internist Dr. Shilpa Sayana created Sayana Medical Spa & Wellness Center to combine aesthetic services with total-body wellness programs.
