David's Salon x Honda Biker Beauty Event

Wednesday, April 22, 2015

    Last Friday, I was invited to experience an afternoon of pampering sesh by David's Salon and Honda Philippines Inc.  The Biker Beauty: David's Salon x Honda Pampering Day was a collaboration by two of the country's best in transportation and salon industry. David's Salon is the default slash go-to salon of my family. We made frequent trips to their SM City Fairview branch for our much needed hair cut. My sister also had her hair rebonded there once.

     So when I received a short notice invite, I got so excited and asked the hubby to allow me to attend the event. He's persistent because we have agreed upon that no more events for the rest of that week. Since I also need a new hair color because the color of my roots were so noticeable already, I insisted him that I want to try the salon's hair coloring service. I'm so happy that I never doubted David's Salon's hair color service because in our experience with their hair cut, it's always a thumbs up!

It is a name that has been admired and followed by many Filipinos since its first salon opened in 1989. It is now the biggest chain of salons in the Philippines, with over 200 branches all over the country.

     "We take pride in providing the highest quality of service at prices everyone can afford," says Charlton. David's Salon offers the following services:

     David's Salon is a trusted brand that works with different trusted suppliers for hair color, hair care, and other forms of technologies used for hair styling. Among these suppliers are L'Oreal, USA's Professional MATRIX, Affinage Infiniti, and Schwarzkopf and Henkel plus Davines- the brand that I've chosen during my hair color treatment since it was the brand that I've used last year on my balayage ombre hair color and I love the results! 

     I'll show you my before photo at the end of this post so that you'll see how I love the results of my hair color now. My problem before I entered David's Salon Sm Megamall branch was unsightly roots and washed out ash blonde hair color. I was introduced to Ms. Aileen who did my hair color treatment.

     First things first, hair assessment. She asked what shade I wanted to color my hair. I told her that I wanted a lighter color but still with highlights. She told me that bleaching my hair would make my wish come true but she insisted that bleaching is a no-no for my hair. I have thin hair strands that's prone to breakage due to frequent coloring using strong chemicals. She said that bleaching will make my hair brittle and extremely dry even if I'll apply hair treatment weekly.

    So my light ash blonde dream hair did not came true but it's okay because putting my hair's health and condition matters most to me. Next shade I wanted was red. Ms. Aileen told me that it's another no-no because the shade is the hardest color to wash-off if I want to color my hair again with a lighter shade. *light bulb* So that's a new thing to me. Friendly reminder to all those who dream of being a red head!

     My apologies because I forgot the exact shade that was used in my hair. The only thing I remember right now is lightest blonde. Hair color brand from Davines. So what really happened? Well, after insisting to Aileen what I wanted, she said that we will just retouch the roots, apply the closest color to my hair to get the same shade from roots to edges then wash out the color of my hilights as it will get a gold/super light blonde that will look disproportion to my full hair color. I'm happy that she opposed to my plans. Hahaha!

     So to those who want to try David's Salon services especially their hair color treatment, here are my simple advice to you if you want to achieve the color that you really want WITHOUT suffering your hair's health and breaking your bank. Take note that this is BASED WITH MY OWN EXPERIENCES :)
  • Know your hair type and hair condition.
  • Always ask the stylist and discuss with him/her what your heart desires. If he/she opposed to the color you want to achieve, listen. He/she can give you other options and will assess your hair first before proceeding to the next step.
  • Your hairstylist have gone years of training so I presume he/she knows the basics of hair coloring- the type of hair color that will be used, the reactions of the new hair color shade on your current hair condition/color and the post-color results "after a day/a week" if the color will turn copper, ashy and the like after shampooing and using other hair care products at home.
  • Weigh the consequences of your chosen hair color. Consider your face shape, skin tone, other issues and the maintenance after coloring your hair.
  • If you're really 100% sure that you want to BLEACH your hair, go for it because that's the only way to achieve the color that you really want BUT expect negative side effects of bleaching.
  • Talk to the stylist during hair color application so that you know what's  going on. You can say stop if you see that you're hair color is turning out different or you're experiencing allergic reactions to the chemicals being applied on your hair. 
  • Remember it's a two-way relationship. You have to talk to your stylist and discuss the things/ the color you want to achieve. 
  • Use post hair color care products like shampoo and conditioner for color-treated hair if you want to maintain the color for weeks or months from fading.
