New haircut and salon review: Louis Phillip Kee Salon in The Fort

Last Thursday, I got a haircut at the newly-opened Louis Phillip Kee Salon in Burgos Circle. I've heard of so many good reviews so I decided to get my waaaay overdue cut there (P750 / senior stylist)!  

I didn't take pictures because they're still on their soft opening. The place is a bit crowded and smells like paint and smoke. I found it odd, the slight smoke odor, but apparently there was a small fire there a couple of weeks ago. Anyway! Ambiance and decor aside, I like the salon because I got a fabulous hair cut.

Not a lot of hair stylists understand curly hair, so I'm really glad that the lady from LPK (didn't get her name unfortunately) did my hair properly. My curls fall in the right place and the layered style is practically wash and wear. I just smooth over my favorite Kérastase Elixir Ultime on damp hair and poof! Nice hair, zero fuss.

I know my hair looks exactly the same to you, but believe me, aside from being shorter it's simply easier to style and tame. :P It's not like there's a lot you can do with curly hair no!

Anyway, I would like to commend the staff - they were so kind and welcoming! I also appreciated that they didn't try to sell me any extra services or acted too familiar. Overall, I like the salon's staff and service, but I am looking forward to the day when the place is finally fixed up. I mean if you're paying P750 minimum for a hair cut, it better be in a swanky, relaxing place right?

Nonetheless, I will certainly visit next time!
