Express Hair Studio in BF Paranaque

I've been neglecting my hair these past few months and if I remember correctly, the last time I went to the salon for a proper haircut was more than 6 months ago. In fact, I wear my hair in a ponytail most of the time and my bangs has grown out already. I finally decided to go to the parlor a month ago, right before all the festivities with my brother-in-law's wedding and our family vacation (kasi for sure madaming picture taking haha!).

There are so many salons in the BF Paranaque area, and one that I've been really curious about was Express Hair Studio, which is right beside the main guard house in Phase 1. The salon is kinda new (I believe it opened last year) and looks really nice and modern from the outside as well as the inside.

I've always thought it was expensive since it looked like a Korean/Japanese salon, but I got surprised when I inquired for the rates and found out their haircut prices (which includes shampoo & blowdry):

Japanese stylistP390 (for girls), P280 (for guys)
Hair specialist (Filipino stylist)P250 (for girls), P190 (for guys)

Plus, they always have some kind of promo going on, like 40% off digital perms, permanent blowouts, or nail services. But best to call them and see what promo they currently have since it changes regularly.

Anyway, I just wanted to have my bangs fixed and get some layers so I opted for the regular hair stylist. I figured, I'll just try the Japanese stylist when I want to do something major with my hair like chop it short.

I told the stylist I wanted to keep the length of my hair (if ever, just make it an inch shorter) and then more layers in front. He started snipping away and I honestly got so nervous after a while because there were so many hair falling on the ground already. But he reassured me that the back part was still long. After he was done, they blowdried my hair, then further curled it with a curling iron. I guess that's really part of their service being an Asian salon.

To be honest, I wasn't really feeling my hair after they curled it, since I felt it was so much shorter that what I had specified. Plus, I couldn't really tell how the layers looked. When I got home, I flat-ironed it quickly to see what it really looked like and this is the result. What do you think?

I honestly was not 100% happy at first, since I felt nasobrahan un layers and my hair got even thinner (I mean, compare it to the AFTER shot of my hair HERE). But then after a while, I figured it was a change from my normal style and besides, I really needed a haircut already. It definitely looked a lot better a few days after and now I can say I'm happy especially with how my bangs look hehe.

If you ask me, I'll still go back to Express Hair Studio to try their other services in the future like the hair color and maybe digiperm. :)
