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)
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.
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.
