To my friends who've asked who does my hair and to random acquaintances who've asked where I had my haircut done, this blog entry is for you:

January 2009 - February 2010

I've always had long black one-length hair when I was in kindergarten until my last year in grade school. No wonder after discovering hair dyes and different haircuts, I always grow tired of the look of my hair and maintain a style for only a month or two. Known to my friends as someone whose hair would look differently get-together after get-together, it's no surprise that I try as many salons and stylists as I can. January of last year, I discovered F Salon, inside First Aid in Greenbelt 3. I was supposed to go to H Salon across Greenbelt 2 but they close early so I had to find an alternative salon since I was really itching to cut off my dry and relaxed strands. Good thing F Salon was still open for business and a stylist was available at that time. That's when I met the stylist who, from then on, is the only who touches my hair until this day (Aside from me trimming and cutting here and there just to delay a salon session for a couple). Julius or Juls, as his clients call him, definitely knew how to handle my tricky hair. Lots of strands and cowlicks, he's still able to diversify my short 'do from bobs to pixies, shaping my hair perfectly to suit my facial structure. I've already referred him to tens of my friends and until this day, I still get asked where I get my haircut and get asked "So if I say Dior, he can do my hair like yours?" The answer to that is pretty much yes, but of course, he needs to consider your face shape or hair type and adjust accordingly. Another plus is that F Salon's rates are reasonable (P350 for a haircut, sweet!). Those who have short hair know how often (3 weeks to a month and a half tops) short lengths needs trimming and maintaining. So it's a relief to have a go-to place that wouldn't slash your purses empty. The staff are friendly, not to mention creative. Some of my friends who go to F salon with my have tried their other stylists too like Ricky, Jun and Jason, and gave good feedback. I guess it will be a long while before I try another salon and stylist again. Right now, I'm perfectly happy with the one handling my crowning glory.
