Behind every primped and polished celebrity, there is a glam team that works rigorously to put them together. (You didn’t think they really woke up like that, did you?) However, it’s not every day that these artistas need the help of an entire barangay to get ready. Believe it or not, just like you, they also take trips to the salon to have their tresses trimmed and their roots retouched. So if ever you feel like upping the glam factor, head over to these salons that have been tried and tested by your fave celebs.
Specializing in personalized treatments, a haircut done by owner and Creative Director Jude Hipolito would normally start at P7,000. What makes it so pricey? Because Jude and his partner, color specialist and Technical Director, Rose Velasco, will make sure that you step out of the salon looking like the best version of yourself.
