Make Up And Hair (MUAH) - BeautyBrick Hair Art Studio

by - September 20, 2012

This is my first 'hair' post on MUAH.  Is that correct?  I don't actually do hair stuff like styling because my hands are not made for that. HAHA!

Few weeks ago, I was thinking of a perfect birthday gift for myself.  Last year, I celebrated it with friends and family by renting a mobile bar.  This time, I wanted to just pamper myself.  Solution.... hair makeover. :)


I didn't think twice when deciding what salon to visit and try.  Believe it or not, it's my first time to go to a salon like this to have my hair fixed.  Well, there was one time in Bench Fix.  I just asked them to curl and tie my hair.

I really wanted to try a Korean Hair Salon.  I've heard a lot of good feedback about Beauty Brick Hair Art Studio.  Not only about their owner and main stylist, Mr. Shin but also the service they provide.

Enough with the intro, let me share to you what happened in my dream hair makeover. :)  Warning, picture heavy. 


Every staff was busy with the clients.  Weekends are the most hectic, from digiperm to hair color and hair cut.  I suggest you reserve a slot ahead of time.

The salon is very open and clean. White walls, red accents, wall paintings and vertical mirrors will welcome you.  You can feel that it's indeed a hair studio.


Waaa.. my braid made my hair curly. :)  We arrived late, but when we got in, we waited for a couple of minutes.


I colored my hair before so you can see some brown parts. :)


For hair coloring, they have samples of colored hair and pictures. 


They use L'Oreal for their hair coloring products.  For my choice of shade, Mr. Shin combined two colors, a light brown and reddish brown.  

At first, he was hesitant to do the color that I showed him because I colored my hair with dark brown.  That's the thing in coloring your hair, you can't really expect the actual and exact shade because every hair type and condition is different.  Well, we love surprises, right?  Try experimenting!  HAHA!


Time to color!  After mixing, they sectioned my hair and applied the mixture.  They told me to close my eyes for safety.  This took about 30-40 minutes.


If ever you're wondering, they didn't wash my hair anymore because I didn't apply anything on it like wax, etc.

Thanks to Kris for taking photos! :)


They applied the color all over my hair except the roots.  It's because that part absorbs color easily and quickly.

Next, they placed a hair cap and I sat under this alien-looking machine. :)  I waited for another 30 minutes.


They checked if the color's already visible from time to time.  Afterwards, they colored the roots for about 7 minutes.  Don't worry, they use timers. :)


Time to wash!!!  Oh and yea, free quick massage too!


Next, blow dry.  

I promise... you won't get bored because staffs are very nice and accommodating.  Mr. Shin focuses more on hair cut and checkpoints in between hair treatments.  


Yikes!  Picture with Mr. Shin... :)

A little background... he was originally from another Korean Salon then, ventured out to his own hair studio.  He's Korean, but speaks Japanese a lot because their translator, Deborah (I'm not sure of the name)  can understand that well instead of Korean.  He studied and took trainings at Japan too.  He's been living here in Manila for.. I think 9 years.  

...and just one little trivia... he cuts and styles his own hair!  MASTER!!!


You can also ask them to curl your hair after.  The trim is included per hair treatment.

AFTER (next, autograph...chos!)

I really love how it turned out.  I was looking for a not so usual brown color with a hint of red.  It actually lightened after washing it the next few days.

Their hair color service starts at 2800 pesos.  This includes everything up to trimming and styling.  Definitely worth my money.  No regrets.  

With Beauty Brick, you don't need to worry about your 'BEFORE and AFTER' looks.  Mr. Shin will make sure that you achieve the look that you really want.  Again, it all depends on your hair condition and type.  Plus, you'll enjoy every minute of it.    

Beauty Brick is located at Unit 103 Doña Consolacion Bldg., 122 Jupiter St., Bel-Air, Makati City. Visit their FB Page here for the contact numbers.

Cheers for the great service.  See you on my next visit!  I can't wait for a much longer hair, so I can try digiperm!  Yay!

  2. If you are in love with this actor or that actress, you might want to replicate his or her haircut. Superstars are trendsetters. Actresses, musicians, even politicians can start a style trend. If you really want to look like your favorite star, you might be able to. Again, you'll have to ask your cosmetician if the hairdo will work for your physical being. Www.HairStudioLDK.Com
