Hello there dearies! From reading my instagram posts over he weekend, you are probably familiar that I had a salon visit over the weekend. To be honest, taking care of my hair is my LEAST PRIORITY -- that's why I always get my hair permed cause I love the idea of not combing my hair (wash and wear). However, my good friend, Belle Esmirez invited me to visit her friend's newly opened salon at Makati for me to experience HIGH END hair pampering at a more affordable cost. She brought me at Leo Pascual Salon at Pembo, Makati.
With Salon Owner and Stylist, Leo Pascual
LEO PASCUAL SALON offers a multitude of salon services -- haircut, hair treatments (I tell you, the EXTREME KERATIN TREATMENT they did to me transformed my hair), hair color, rebonding, relax, perming and even the usual hot oil, waxing, nail services and even massage in a much much affordable price. I was really amazed that Mr. Leo is a senior stylist at Louis Philipp Kee, and I am given almost the same services in a cost that I can truly afforf.
I am really grateful that my friend Belle referred me to him as I was pampered in a way I did nor expect. I was also glad to know that Leo Pascual Salon's senior stylist is SIR JESSE, who worked at Bambi Fuentes (and was Marian Rivera's MUA) prior to being hired at Leo Pascual. Indeed, high quality service within reach.
I was expecting a simple hair treatment when I arrived at his salon, but was really surprised when Sir Leo and Sir Jesse told me that they are going to transform my hair. Sir Leo told me that he's going to color my hair -- one thing I really fear the most, for I believe it will cause hair thinning. But he assured me that he will color my hair that will highlight my features and at the same time will look very appropriate for my work. In short, he wanted to give me a sexy, corporate look.
Although my hair is nauturally brown, he decided to put an ASH BROWN dye to further enhance my mestiza features. I was really scared of having hair color (or treatments) as I used to believe that it will cause hair fall. I was traumatized when I had my hair rebonded many years ago and experienced the worst hairfall ever. But, Sir Leo assured me that all the PRODUCTS he is USING IN HIS SALON are SAFE and will not compromise the hair of their clients.
After applying the hair color, the team gave my hair the EXTREME KERATIN TREATMENT for my hair was really dry, dull and boring. I never tried having expensive hair treatments at Salons before cause I was so kuripot. But this Keratin Treatment from Leo Pascual Salon changed my views on investing in treatments for it definitely restored my hair's health in just one session.
Here are some of Mr. Leo Pascual's achievements and certifications. You really are in good hands in his salon.
Of course, to end the hair pampering session, a hair trim.
After the hair color, extreme keratin treatment (which included a hair ironing session) and trim, here's final product:
I was speechless the moment I saw myself after Sir Leo and Sir Jessie's work. I seriously nevee saw my hair this shiny and glowing. And the hair color was really stunning. Even Paolo the fiance was so happy after seeing my transformation. It was probably the first time (in 8 years) he saw my hair so healthy and full of life!
I felt like I was in a total makeover reality show! Thank you so much LEO PASCUAL SALON for making me look beautiful! :)
LEO PASCUAL SALON is located at Pembo Makati. So for those who are looking for that hair treatment, consider Leo Pascual Salon to cater to your needs. They also offer warranty on their services where you can always go back in case you were not too satisfied with the result.
Of course, Paolo took more of my hair photos the next day. Since I still have some curls on the edge of my hair, my natural waves showed.
I've never seen my hair this healthy and glowing!!
My new hair color did highlight my features. I believe it made me look fairer and more mestiza. And it has been 3 days since my treatment, but I still get a lot of compliments on how my hair and hair color looks good.
My visit to Leo Pascual Salon was worth it :)
If you want the same transformation, just visit his salon at Blk 212 Lot 21 Sampaguita Cor. Umbell St and Upper Azucena St., Pembo Makati. contact number 09065580685

Hello guys! Is it me, or time flies too fast? Anyways, it has been a busy weekend for me, and I probably spent half of it fixing things for our wedding. But before I tell you stuff about it, let me share with you first how Paolo and I spent our monthsary last May 16, Thursday.
Luckily, I was invited by a good friend, Kath Estaquio for the block screening of Star Trek Into Darkness. It was like perfect timing for Paolo and I were contemplating what to do for our 104th monthsary. I was quite curious to watch the movie as I remember snippets of Star Trek shows when I was a kid. I'm glad Paolo was a geek and he was interested in the movie as well.
Anyways, before I share you how our movie date went, let me first show you what I wore that day.
Since I came from work that day, I just brought with me outfits that will easily make my look stunning without too much effort. I easily picked this cape top from Creme Dela Femme and the heel-less shoes from Mags.
Necklace & Spiked Bangles: Highlights Accessories
Bangles: Oh My Garment
Whenever I'm lazy to think of my outfit, I just try to mix and match statement pieces to make my look a little stunning. I hope this one worked, as it was a sacrifice walking around the mall in my heel-less shoes. :p Anyhoo, going back to our Star Trek Date, Paolo and I were very privileged to be invited at the Pizza Hut's block screening of the Star Trek movie.
More than the free movie screening, we were treated with a sumptous treat of different Pizza Hut products (Yes cheat day!!!!).
Cheatness overload: Sausage Roll, Mozarella Sticks, Chicken wings and their newest offering: the Cheeseburger Pizza!
At 7:30PM, we were asked to finish our meal and head inside the Cineplex to watch the movie.
But wait! Before they played the movie, they gave away P1000 Pizza Hut GCs and yes I won!!! Which I will use to treat my Lolo for his birthday!
And we will eat tons of this delicous cheeseburger pizza! I seriously forgot the fact that I was on a diet and finished 2 slices in 2 minutes!
The obligatory couple shot before the movie.
It definitely enjoyed the movie! As I told earlier I rmember watching Star Trek when I was little, but forgot some details of it growing up. It was fun seeing Spuck again, and see them fly on space. It was a fun night for the two of us for we were not just visually satisfies, but our tastebuds were too :)
Thanks again Kath for the invite!
Hope you liked this post! Good luck on the coming workweek! :)
