The Beauty Lounge by Bianca Festejo : Beauty haven in the South Eastern Part of Metro Manila

Are you tired of your everyday boring look? Have you been a victim of brassy hair? Do you have unruly and bad hair condition? Do you hear your  mane shouting "Bad hair day!" Keep calm, I'll share with you where I found my beauty haven in the South Eastern part of Metro Manila-- The Beauty Lounge by Bianca Festejo.  in Taguig.

Why haven? Coz I know  that I am, especially my crowning glory, safe with them. The place is  peaceful, I know that the staff are skillful because they were professionally going about their work cutting hair, blow drying, etc. No loud laughing, no squealing. I can feel they are trustworthy. The staff wasn’t loud. You know what I mean.

As I wait for my turn, I observed and took photos of the place. Every customer who walks in starts with an in-depth consultation with their Senior Stylist, hmmm...that's a plus! You know they'll take care of your hair, that you are in good hands and they are not just after the income. They will treat you as a VIP regardless of your appearance.

The Beauty Lounge by Bianca Festejo's cozy and welcoming vibe is another factor that will keep me coming back. From the receptionist (Ms. Jen) to the hair technicians inside the work area, you will not feel that they are indifferent. Please don’t expect uber-fancy salon level ambience, the salon only charges P150 for a haircut, after all. The place is clean, well-lit and comfy temperature.

People might think I'm emotionally distressed to cut off my hair super short. For many women, cutting hair off can be liberating, empowering, or joy-making in a variety of ways. For some women, it's literally just a haircut. Movies and television, though, would have you believe no woman has ever cut her hair off just because, well, just because. But that wasn't my goal. I learned I didn't need long curls or a ponytail to feel feminine, and I certainly didn't need it to gain the affection or approval of men. I want to do it for a good cause.

Its been 3 yrs since I've undergone craniotomy due to meningioma (brain tumor). I survived. From then on, I pledged to donate my hair everytime it is atleast 12inches long to kids/women with Cancer. I was so delighted that Ms. Bianca Festejo, owner of the salon who does not only have a beautiful face, but a beautiful and big heart as well, agreed to be my partner salon with my advocacy through Ms. Joy .

My family and friends were against my decision. Even the stylist at first was hesitant to cut my natural, long, curly hair. But I still insisted. Not for me, but for a very special person. Many are not in favor, some liked it, some loved it,some are crazy for it and some people just thought I'd lost my shit..All I can do is follow what I want because  I will never please anyone. I just want to be who I am and not who the world wants me to be.

Jay-R, Senior Stylist
Meet the person behind my transformation. JAY R is a genius, a magician for a decent and fab job. He first asked me what services I wanted. I told him that I just want my hair properly cut short, pull my hair to a ponytail then snip! wait! I remember I asked him if he knew Jodi Sta Maria's hair in the huge billboard of a beauty ad along EDSA which I spotted on my way to an event earlier that day. He said no because he rarely got the chance to watch tv  and travel along EDSA because of his job. Ok then, I just said get my hair cut, hair color, highlights and treatment. It took me almost 3hrs in the salon.

Because he is such a genius, this is the result! Awww... I almost cried. It's so beautiful. 

Ah, the feeling of a new haircut. Isn’t it wonderful – a weight taken off of your shoulders, less shampoo used in the shower… 😍

He knows how to modify my inspiration so that it suits my face and hair texture. He is also big on hair health. He made sure to get my hair in tip-top shape with treatments.

Thank you Jay- R and the The Beauty Lounge by Bianca Festejo for unlocking the beauty and confidence in me. Thank you for making me feel amazingly wonderful. As a friend commented on my photo in Instagram,  Fab is an understatement! .

Bein a full time mom, simple joys such as getting hair done after years of bein in a bun is happiness 😉 But becoming fab after the service is heaven!
