An Efen Reyes Hair & Beauty Salon in Singapore?

No, it isn't a typo.  And yes, there is an Efen Reyes Hair & Beauty Salon in Singapore.

Efen Reyes Hair & Beauty Salon

I’ve mentioned in past posts that I have always been deathly afraid of having my hair cut at any other place except at a David’s Salon branch.  As childish as it sounds, I have actually been known to cry whenever I find my hair cut in a way that do not meet my expectations, a constant source of stress to both the hair stylist and the Madir when I was still a young girl.

After discovering the wonders that the people at David’s Salon can do to my locks (my very first visit was at their Robinson's Place Manila branch during college), I have, hence, been a loyal customer and have never looked backed since.

But hair grows, regardless of whether I am in the Philippines or not; and after months of looking like a hobo, I finally succumbed and looked for a place that could give me a decent cut, and oh, plus one that's also staffed Filipino hairdressers (for easy communication  J).   

As we all know, in Singapore, there is no David’s Salon; but there is an Efen Reyes Hair & Beauty Salon.  Located in Lucky Plaza, which I have informally dubbed as “Manila town" or the-mall-that-Filipinos-swarm-to-during-their-rest-days, the Efen Reyes Hair & Beauty Salon is a small, hole-in-wall beauty parlor that offers the usual services that any regular hairdresser provides.

And before you ask, no, the owner isn’t named Efen Reyes nor are they associated with our well-know pool master, Efren Reyes; or famous local hairdresser, Ricky Reyes.  Beauty salons are a dime a dozen at Lucky Plaza, almost all staffed with our qualified and talented kababayans (countrymen).  In the face of such stiff competition, I guess the owner decided to name his place as such to associate himself with some of the famous personalities of our shores.

And you know what?  It works, too.  For me anyway, as I must admit, the name was what drew me to them.  A simple hair cut costs only S$12 (Php390*); pretty affordable for such an expensive city where cuts, on average, are priced at around S$45 to S$60 (Php1,400 to 1,900*).

My "new" do

And I am fully satisfied with the outcome.  No tears this time.  J

*S$1 = Php33

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
