Choose Your Hair Personality
For its anniversary treat, Acqua Salon offers several packages to give your hair the glam new look it deserves: Princess, Diva, Rock Star, and Goddess. Whatever you go for, you’ll come out stunning, we guarantee. Be prepared, though, to spend at least two hours in the salon. But then again, who would mind spending a little time to get their tresses all glammed up?
Since I have worn my hair short for quite some time (and don't intend to grow it any longer anytime soon) I went for the Rock Star package, which lumps together a haircut, full head color, and highlights. The friendly senior stylist, Laila, began by discussing what cut I wanted and recommended the combination of head color and highlights (mine included purple!) that would suit the fresh new look I wanted. A relaxing shampoo session follows.
After getting the stylish short 'do I asked for, the hair color treatment followed. Full head color treatment takes about 30 minutes. Note that this color treatment is permanent and would not wash off unlike your usual cellophane treatments.
After rinsing the hair color treatment, they apply the highlights. You can choose one, two, or three colors for your hair highlights. The stylist will wrap sections of your hair in foil after carefully applying the color treatment. You'll wait for another 15 to 30 mintues to let the treatment settle. After another relaxing session at the shampoo area, you'll come out with vibrant, fab-looking hair, worthy of a rock star (not that you have to be one to rock this look).
Yes, the long wait for the color treatment to settle can be daunting, but the attendant makes it easy for you to relax as you get a bonus massage. They'll knead your scalp, neck, and back to put you completely at ease.
The Rockstar Package starts at P2,600 for short hair, which is totally reasonable considering how much you save lumping all these treatments together (which can be up to P980 for long hair). You can also consider adding a Total Repair Treatment (for an additional P600 for short hair) to ensure that your color-treated locks won't dry up.
