A fantastic haircut and color are worth every penny. You see I just had my hair styled and cut by Miss Cristy of EMPIRE SALON located inside Intercontinental Hotel in Makati City.
Ms. Cristy Dizon is a London-trained stylist and the style director of Empire Salon. She’s now added to my list of favorite hair stylists, probably next to my super favorite Louis Phillip Kee (LPK).
I had a great experience at Empire Salon. Ms. Cristy did an amazing layered cut to my mane. It’s now more feminine, soft, and flowing.
In choosing your hair-stylist, so many factors come into play like, for example, the ones that you’ll find on my checklist:
- customer service
I also had a permanent hair color at Empire Salon. Rick Ablan, a salon technician, is responsible for my new hair color.
The Place: I think the salon is small compared to LPK but it has adjacent exclusive private rooms available for people who value their privacy.
Service: Service is great and professional. My hair stylist Ms. Cristy certainly knows what she was doing during the 5-6 hours for my hair color alone. By the way, they also serve unlimited iced tea.
Price: Php600-1,300 for Hair Cut
Empire Salon is clean. The front office staff is nice and courteous. The Salon carries good hair products I love. Ms. Cristy and Mr. Rick kept me informed on what they were doing to my hair and why they were doing it. All of them, especially Ms. Suki, Ms. Cristy and Mr. Rick, gave me tips on hair care and hair styling products.
Final verdict: After the customary mirror check, I can say I am happy with my new hair style and color.
