Salon Report: Haircut at Salon Beauvoir

I love visiting different salons around the Metro.  Why?  Well, I get to feel the different vibe on each salon (even out of the country).  Going to salon is like going for a massage!  I love the feeling of having my hair pampered even for an hour, just like the rest of my body, I think our hair deserves the tender loving care!

Since my hair has been out of shape for the longest time, half a year without a trim!  Can't blame me, I've been very busy prettifying other people during my weekends and I tend to forget about myself!  So after a long and tiring week, I've finally booked myself a hair appointment with the help of Char!  (Thanks Char!)

Okay, I've seen a lot of posh looking salons in the past but this one topped the list for the moment ---  Salon Beauvoir!

Salon Beauvoir means "Beautiful View" in French and so far, as I stepped in the salon located at Somerset Olympia Building in Makati, I was indeed amazed by the luxurious interior that reminded me so much of a view inside a prestigious cruise line!  Imagine "Titanic" the modern version! :)

As I waited for my turn, I was offered a Raspberry Iced Tea drink as I plopped myself into this gorgeous velvet couch and there I see international and local magazines to choose from!  I was also busy updating my phone's email as the salon is equipped with Free WIFI!

As my eye gravitated towards the hair products, I like how hair products were displayed like how you would arrange them inside a room rather than putting them on a glass case!  Don't you want to take the table home?  I know I would!

As I was led to my seat by the friendly salon staff, I met Sam Santos.  International Stylist Sam who studied in London to perfect his craft and was part of the official hairdresser of the Queen and her guests (Steiner Group).  

I had a quick hair consultation with Sam and I explained to him how much I would love to retain the length of my hair but have him revamp the layers!  He agreed that my layers have long been outdated!

I was introduced to Sam's assistant John, who led me to the hair washing area. My hair was washed for a couple of minutes and he gently massaged my scalp with L'Oreal hair products!  (Yup!  I asked!  I can pass up as a reporter eh?)

 I had loads of magazines in front of me but I didn't get to read a single one as I enjoyed chatting with Sam!  For someone who traveled to several countries and worked magic on hundreds of clients, he's one down-to-earth man who enjoys sharing his knowledge to his team!  Where else?  Back home! Such a lovely man to give back to his countrymen!  For the love of beauty!  *woot*!

Some finishing touches where made as John blow dried my hair!  I immediately, and excitedly ran my fingers through my hair and immediately felt all the dry ends disappeared!  No wonder Sam was given a moniker "The Repair Man"!  He repaired my lifeless hair making it bouncier and softer!

Note: It was done even without hair treatment!  The magic of right cutting techniques!

Sam and John with the happy client! :)
I made new friends that day!

Haircut for women starts at Php600/800/1,000/1,200 (Jr. Stylist/Stylist/ Sr. Stylist/International Stylist)

Before I left the salon, Sam toured me around the salon and I was told the salon has 3 VIP rooms

A male area

And several seats for walk-in clients! 

Salon Beauvoir is definitely a place I'd come back to!  I had loads of fun chatting with the friendly staffs at the same time, my hair went home super light and happy!

  4. What a beautiful salon! And your hair looks great!

    1. thanks my hair feels great even at the moment! After several washes :)

  5. Hi Nikki! Thanks for posting this. I'm starting to get tired of the usual salons I go to. This one's perfectly located inside Makati. Love the posh interiors too. :) Will definitely visit one of these days. By the way, how much is their Brazilian Blowout? Thanks.

    1. Sis, I asked, let's say for my length of hair, it'll be 7,000 original price then slash it half! try calling them to check, last weekend, I was told by Sam that the promo was extended! so habang maaga pa! gorah! If I didn't go through Chroma Straight, I'll book right away as I like the "Volume" of a newly blowdried hair! I saw someone did that service while they cut my hair, her hair looks divine! kainggit :)

  6. cozy atmosphere...relaxing to the eyes....reasonable price for a salon like this.nice blog anyway.^_^

  7. I love the interiors! Very posh! The salon looks very clean and organized. That's an added point. :)

    I had my hair permed last December and it became dry after a few months so three weeks ago, I went to David's Revere and had 8 inches of my hair chopped off. Yes, 8 inches! My friends and officemates were shocked but I don't regret cutting it because (according to them hehe) I look younger and fresh. :)

    1. wow 8 inches chopped off? Did you take your hair back to donate it ? I hope you did :)

      I have a feeling you look great nevertheless with short hair! and as we say, hair grows, so its ok to experiment once in awhile :D


I'd love to hear from you! Feel free to comment your questions, suggestions and just anything you may want to say! Keep smiling and stay happy!
