Whether it’s through phone, computer, or tablet, we Filipinos always want to be connected with the people we love. It’s no wonder then why the Philippines has consistently ranked high among the countries with the heaviest SMS usage, and why Facebook is such a hit to young and old alike. The number of mom-bloggers and mom-preneurs has increased steadily in the last few years, allowing them to combine work and leisure wherever they are. And you know just how techie we have all become when a salon like The Blounge opens.
The Blounge, located along Mother Ignacia Avenue in Quezon City, was recently launched as the first high-tech beauty lounge in the metro. It promises to be an excellent place to de-stress while also understanding your fast-paced lifestyle which requires you to be online, whether for work or play, all the time.
Rossel Velasco-Taberna, owner of The Blounge, tells us why this quaint salon has become the favorite place of men and women alike for their beauty and wellness needs:
What got you into the salon business? We are not new in the industry. Three years ago we had a salon in Panay Avenue, Quezon City but our lease contract has since ended so we had to find a new place. After a long search, we finally found this location where we could introduce our modern salon concept.
What makes The Blounge different from other salons? The Blounge is unique because we offer a “hi-end, hi-tech” ambiance at prices that won’t break your budget. Our basic haircut is at P350 and our mani-pedi package is at P310 using imported nail polish. We also offer the latest hair trends like Brazilian Blowout and Digital Perming.
We also understand the need to be always “online”, so we decided to make our salon techie-friendly by providing Apple iPAD units with fast Internet connection within the salon. Whether you need to work while having your hair and nails done, or you just want to chat with your Facebook or Twitter friends while inside our lounge, we’ve made that possible.
What services does The Blounge specialize in? The Blounge specializes in hair coloring, hair rebonding, traditional or digital perming and Brazilian Blowout. Armed with expertise, our hairstylists would ask each client about his “hair history,” just like when you go to the doctor for a check- up. This is important for them to give the appropriate recommendations and use the right products to achieve the results they want.
All our stylists have been in the beauty industry for at least several years but because we want to train them with the newest procedures, we sent them to a 2-month training and evaluation under renowned beauty expert Lourd Ramos. So you can relax and let our experienced staff do what they do best - make you look FAB.
