My Brazilian Treatment Experience at The Beauty Lounge by Bianca Festejo in Taguig + Giveaway!

Happy December 1st! Wait, it's December already? Oh how time flies so fast. Where have all the days gone? Anyway, the past few days wasn't good to me so I would like to start my December with something beautiful. I would like to share with you my Brazilian Treatment experience at The Beauty Lounge by Bianca Festejo.

Reception area of The Beauty Lounge by Bianca Festejo, adjacent to it is a couch for waiting customers or their companion
Does the name ring any bell with you? Bianca Festejo is the owner of Mary Pauline Salon and Spa in Starmall Las Pinas which just celebrated it's first year last October 2016.  I've been to Mary Pauline before already and have tried some of their services and I swear they are one of the nicest salon I've ever been to! You can read here about my Hairtastic Makeover and My OxyGeneo Super Facial Experience with them. Her humble beginning with her first salon turned out to be a big success and became a hit not just in Las Pinas but to many customers from different areas in the Metro. With her desire to provide more people with affordable but competitive beauty service, Bianca finally opened her newest branch, The Beauty Lounge by Bianca Festejo in Taguig.

The Beauty Lounge by Bianca Festejo is a one stop salon that caters to all our beauty needs, hair, nails and skin, you name it! In this fast paced world and given the traffic condition here in the Philippines, multitasking to be able to maximize our time is a must. And, for a mom like me who barely have time to pamper myself it's a relief to know that I can have my hair done, my nails and even my facial in one place which will surely help me save a lot of time. 


The Grand Opening of The Beauty Lounge was last November 14, 2016 but before that, Bianca held a Bloggers Pampering day last November 10, 2016 and I was one of the invited bloggers. Such a perfect timing because my crowning glory needs some rescuing and pampering. 

The Beauty Lounge by Bianca Festejo looks so posh. It can cater up to 7 customers at once for their hair services. They also have other rooms exclusively for non invasive derma service. They have their own resident Dermatologist who will asses you prior to any derma services to ensure safety.
This is their posh nail service area. I also attended the Grand Opening together with Brianna and my blogger friend Eihdra of www.samut-sari.com. We both tried their foot spa and pedicure package.
Living the blonde life ain't that easy, especially if you weren't born with it. I should know because I've been living the bleach blonde life for almost 6 months. You can read how my hair transitioned from back to blonde on my blog post here. Bleach blonde hair sure is high maintenance and needs extra care compared to the regular dyed hair. Once you go blonde you have to commit to taking care of your hair or else it will become dry and damaged which exactly what happened to mine. Since I gone blonde last June I didn't visit any salon for the required treatment nor did any maintenance at home such as using the proper shampoo and conditioner. 


Days prior to the event I already made up my mind, I wanted to have a hair color and rebond. But upon assessment, my hair is not eligible to any of the 2 service I wanted. I actually have the option to still have it done but that will add more damage to my already damaged hair. I sure don't want that. My hair needs nourishing and rescuing according to my stylists, Sir Edward and Sunshine so they recommend the RMANES Brazilian Treatment and that's what we did! 


I just found out then that there are actually 2 types of Brazilian Treatment, the Alfaparf and the Rmanes Brazilian Treatment and the Rmanes is the one suitable for my hair. The treatment took about 2 hours only, they have a timer to ensure that the treatment stay on my hair only on the required span of time. There never was a dull moment during the treatment because the staffs made sure to cater my needs, drinks, snacks and a good conversation. 

In about 2 hours time, my hair is done. It has never been this soft and smooth in 6 months time. Up to this posting which is already past 3 weeks, it still is soft and manageable. I still have to go through the same treatment this month though and after that I can already have my hair rebonded. My hair is naturally thick and wavy so I yearly opt for hair rebond. 

I forgot to take my before photo because I actually came in late for the event, but here is 
my hair after treatment photo. As you can see it's only straight because it was blow dried and ironed.

One of the many reasons why I love Mary Pauline is their exceptional customer service and I experienced the same with The Beauty Lounge. They care about their customer, they provide teaching and recommend the suitable treatment for their customers. But of course in the end, the decision is all up to you. I may not have achieved a straight and cool hair color but at least my hair is now healthier which is what matters most. Another thing that will surely make you a loyal customer of these 2 salons is their affordable rates that wont cost you an arm or a leg. Above all these, their services are very competitive which will leave you satisfied. 

Thanks to my stylists Sir Edward and Sunshine!
