At the end of a hectic work week, wouldn’t you want to wind down and relax in a quiet spot, enjoying the serenity as time goes by? Borne out of such belief, mom and I went to Princess Hazel Salon & Spa along Quezon Avenue last Saturday for a mother and daughter bonding time to flee away from reality.

Review of Princess Hazel Salon & Spa (Pacific Century Tower, Quezon Avenue)

Ambiance: ★★★★★

Juxtaposed against the bustling streets of Quezon City along Quezon Avenue, this beauty center has an ambiance that makes up for an immediate chance in mood as you step through its door. The details and props in display renders you to slow down and take a second look. Accessories for a darling princess and everything for a girly girl are all arranged neatly on shelves by the entrance.

Past the reception area, gold and purple chairs and stacks of branded nail polish colors welcome customers abound. These are definitely more than what I expected to find in a normal salon. Walking further, we found a vanity dresser with lights and the chandelier catching our attention spot on. I like to have this room in our home! Princess Hazel Salon & Spa is very clean, comfortable and stylish.

Service: ★★★★★

We came by reservation as Princess Hazel Salon & Spa prefers it that way rather than walk-ins. Especially during weekends, they have a long list of customers whose names are already listed as expected to come by. Walk-in customers are often advised to visit on another day if there’s no open slot.

I stated my name and we were led to the area specific to where the services would be done: hair spa for me and manicure + pedicure for my mom. The ends of my hair are dry, but I don’t want to have my hair cut anytime soon. Hair spa must be the perfect treatment to have better nutrition and smoothness to the hair. As much as it improves blood circulation, hair spa is also a good instant remedy to remove mental stress and worldly tensions. Hair results to be delivered beautifully without tangles.

The staff first washed my hair then applied the L’Oreal hair spa cream. She massaged my scalp, spread the cream evenly on the hair strands and set the timer to 20 minutes. The product used was enriched with cooling menthol that’s able to free the scalp as well from impurities like sweat, sebum and dandruff. While waiting, I received a nice back massage to soothe my uber tired and stiff muscles. It was relaxing! 🙂 When time was up, the staff rinsed my hair and used a hair dryer to get my hair dry fast. It was another good experience overall.

Mom was also satisfied with the ORLY Green Apple (her favorite color) she selected. Her fingernails and toenails are now clean and pretty. What’s noteworthy about Princess Hazel Salon and Spa’s nail polish service is that there’s no added cost if customers choose high-quality nail polishes like those of O.P.I., Zoya, Orly, and Essie.

Princess Hazel Salon & Spa also offers waxing, body scrubs, eyelash alterations, massage, facial, hair and make-up, Brazilian Blowouts, D2 Treatments, Nou Nou Treatments, hair rebonding and radio frequency for body contouring.

Price for Value: ★★★★☆

Considering the service and ambiance at Princess Hazel Salon & Spa, prices are at par with the value. This is a one-stop center to visit if you want to have a super-chic, collaborative experience. I’m thrilled to pass by another day after receiving the “loyalty card” they gave me before we left. Customers here get to have a point or a stamp in a card. Points or stamps are earned per visit and a certain accumulation will grant a certain service for free. Here’s the price list:

In addition, Princess Hazel Salon & Spa has daily discounts from Monday to Friday this September. Everything is 50% off during Mondays; 40% off, Tuesdays; 30% off, Wednesdays; 20% off, Thursdays; and 10% off, Fridays, according to the staff.

As I browsed through their Facebook page, I learned that they offer different promos every month, so make yourself a favor and visit their Facebook page or call them up to take advantage of ongoing deals. 😛

      Thanks, Franc. You should also try receiving some of their services because they are not only for girls. 🙂 The staffs here are good at rotating customers so no one sits too long, and everyone is out in good time. The atmosphere is relaxed, clean and orderly. You will love it.

      Yup, they offer massages and they have private cubicles on the second floor where customers can take delight in relaxing and staying free from stress during the session.

    A very nice way to pamper yourself. The place interior is just perfect and both of you and your mom are Princesses in their your own right.

      That’s so true! When compared to prices of salon and spa services in other countries, prices here in Manila are damn cheap. Choose from a dynamic palette composed of subtle sheers, vivid cremes, dazzling shimmers, smooth glitters and hot neons from Princess Hazel’s nail polishes. 🙂

      Mom suggested that we go back there on a Monday night after work. I have some hesitation because of traffic jam expected from Pasay to Q. Ave. I am hopeful that they open up a branch in MOA so that I can just walk from our office to get there! 😛

    This looks like a well done salon and spa. I actually have to travel at least an hour for something just as fancy or fancier that offer similar services.

    They should think about approaching any mommy blogger or female blogger or women in business meetup groups and offer specials. We do that out here with some of the spas.

    This looks like a place my wife and daughter would probably frequent on their girl dates.. they like to be pampered once in a while and rightfully so.

      You can also join in the date so you three can bond together as a family in this spa and salon. There are men who haven’t tried nail cleaning or nail polish. It’s good to have your nails done at least once, or maybe you will like it and make it as a routine next time. 🙂

      Try their services one time and you’ll not regret coming into this salon. Its small, quaint relaxation area allowed us to unwind. The products are high quality and the availability of time slots are accommodating.

    Super love the interiors right? I loved my visit there too. Definitely trying their mani pedi next time. I didn’t know that they didn’t charge extra for the more expensive brands, other spas charge 50-100 pesos more for that.

    Reply
    • Rochkirstin Santos

      Yeah. The staffs told us that and that made me want to go for another mani-pedi experience next time. I’ve also browsed through the nail arts for inspiration and found that they’re super nice. 🙂

      In visiting Princess Hazel Salon and Spa, I’m torn between the weekends and the weekdays. Of course weekends would be more convenient but it’s hard to turn my back at the discounts waiting from Mon-Fri as well. 😀
