I get bored of people and things pretty quickly. On average, it takes me about 2 months to get sick of a person or a thing. I think the only person and thing that have remained constant in my life so far are Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Starbucks coffee.
This is the reason why I have never had a long-term relationship, why my iTunes playlist changes on a daily basis, and why I feel the need to change my hairstyle so often.
Well, things have changed a little since Folded & Hung's Famous Salon opened its first branch in Robinsons Place Manila on September 17. I am proud to announce that I was literally the very first person there (to change my hairstyle for the nth time) that day.
Folded & Hung's Famous Salon is located at the 3rd floor of the Adriatico Wing. It's easy to spot - don't worry!
Upon entering, you will find this wall with cutie Enrique Gil on it. (Hi, Jacky!) Enrique Gil happens to be one of Folded & Hung's endorsers, along with Angel Locsin, Elmo Magalona, Alden Richards and Sam Milby.
These awesome walls inside the salon reminded me of my own condo walls during my college days. #kurtiwillalwaysloveyou
A few minutes after my arrival, Miko arrived, too!
Closely followed by Paul.
And then Gerd. :)
I don't know about the guys, but I definitely didn't have any specific hairstyle planned before getting to the salon. The only thing I was really sure about was that I wanted to get rid of my undercut because so many people are starting to get it now (my twin included!). In fact, I wanted to get rid of it so badly, I covered it up before even getting to the salon. :p
A quick shot of my dry, split end-infested hair before getting my hair styled.
I'm pretty happy I decided to just wing it and hope that my stylist would be a good one. I definitely wasn't disappointed. My stylist, Eugene, knew immediately what he wanted to do and I left my hair up to his capable hands... even though I almost cried when he chopped off around 3 inches of it. :p
Aside from a shorter cut to get rid of my dry split ends from my bleached ombre hair from months ago, Eugene also decided to color my hair in a reddish-brown hue.
I got to wear these things over my ears to keep them from getting dyed on. I wanted to keep them on forever, though. In case you haven't noticed, I have weird ears. :(
That was the first time I noticed I have a
Mickey Mouse heart-shaped face. :p
Now, if you've ever gotten your hair colored and you're a girl, then you should know how long the waiting period is when coloring your hair by now. Well, if you tend to get bored while waiting, you'll be super happy to hear that 1) Folded & Hung's Famous Salon has strong Wi-Fi; 2) they have plug sockets practically everywhere; and 3) they have a cafe in the salon!!!
Famous Salon's cafe.
I'll be honest: I actually fell in love with Famous Salon before first sight. They actually tweeted about their salon-cafe a few days before we were meant to go, and that's when they had me. I live for coffee. And Famous Salon just happens to be the first and only(!) salon in the country so far to offer a cafe in it, so they've definitely got my vote!
I like my coffee black with two packs of brown sugar.
The spinach crostinis were good, too!
Now, even if you aren't a caffeine fiend like me, you can still enjoy other beverages, food and snacks at affordable prices. Here's a picture of their menu:
Take it from me: drinking and eating is awesome if you plan on getting hair treatments done that take hours to finish. No boredom here! WiFi - check! Plug sockets - check! Coffee - check! I could live in Famous Salon and be completely happy and content. Swear.
So happy, you can actually semi-see my under-eye dimples. :p
Now, are you ready to get kilig, blogger boy fan girls? Hold on to your panties coz here are the guys with their new hairstyles:
Okay, you can stop drooling now. Do I have your attention again? Okay, good. :p
So, I know I said I get bored of people and things pretty quickly; and that Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Starbucks coffee are the only things that have remained constant in my life. Well, I'm officially adding Folded & Hung's Famous Salon to that list. :) I love being famous!
Thank you so much, Folded & Hung, for having us.
And special thanks to their miracle worker - slash - stylist - Eugene who miraculously made me look pretty in curls, even though I usually look horrible when curly. :)
