    "I always go to Azta Urban Salon in Alabang Town Center. I don’t have a particular stylist, but I always like how my hair looks every time I go there. The rates are okay, too!" - Ira Nopuente

    "My stylist is the best! He looks like a rocker dude and chill lang but super reliable with my buhaghag hair." - Tiffany Canseco

  2. Bench Fix Salon

    "I don't really have a go-to stylist, but I usually go to Bench Fix." - Lou Ferrer

    "I usually go to Bench Fix for a haircut." - Bianca Sto. Domingo Villaverde

    "For pixie cuts and embracing your inner (fake) blonde, I highly recommend Ronie Sembrana (senior stylist) of Bench Fix Megamall and Jay-R, his junior stylist/assistant. I've been going to them since 2016! A high-maintenance cut like a pixie needs regular trims, so the P350 per cut is way more manageable for me. I get trims every three weeks! I also get my hair colored every other month, with full bleaching every two months. I think I spend the same amount on my hair as my skincare. If not the same, super close!" - Jillian Gatcheco

    Locations: Fairview Terraces, U.P. Town Center, Ayala Malls the 30th, Glorietta, Greenbelt, Market! Market!, Alabang Town Center, Harbor Point, Robinsons Magnolia, Robinsons Place Manila, Robinsons Place Lipa, Robinsons Galleria Cebu, SM Lanang Premier, SM City Cabanatuan, SM City Cauayan, SM City Baliwag, SM Taytay, SM City Masinag, SM City Marikina, SM North EDSA, SM Megamall, SM Mall of Asia, SM Southmall
