Hair Color and More at Hair Philosophie by Jing Monis

Hair Color and More at Hair Philosophie by Jing Monis

I really wanted to go to a posh salon in Davao City and avail of their services, but hesitations sometimes struck me because one, I do not know the hairstylists and I have trust issues. Two, I have doubts on the products because it might be fake, harmful or too strong, and three, the most important, is the price. Since I am just living in Tagum City, prices are quiet low and I am used to that. So when I plan to have my hair done in Davao City, my basic questions are: Is it affordable? Is it too expensive? Is it value for my money’s worth?

Good thing was that the Davao Bloggers Society members were invited to attend a meet and greet event at Hair Philosophie by Jing Monis, with Jing Monis himself! Of course, we were able to avail services of our choice and we were also given freebies to maintain our hair condition. The products were from Osis and Wella.

I availed the hair cut, full highlights, full hair color and hair treatment during my schedule. Mr. Mario, the senior stylist, was very accommodating and gave advise on what is the best for my hair. Together with Mr. Eric, his junior stylist, they did an amazing job on my hair. The color was toned down and the highlights gave some oomph on my boring and untamed hair.

Hair Philosophie by Jing Monis is a great salon. With my experience, the hair stylists were really good, the products are of the best quality and the price…the price is reasonable.

With my medium-length hair, the prices were: haircut in round layer style – 450 pesos, full highlights in special blonde ash – 2,200 pesos, full hair color in medium blonde cendre copper – 2,400 pesos, and macadamia treatment – 1,500 pesos. Total is 6,550 pesos. Yes, it is expensive but you will not regret it. The products and services were all worth it.

I am very satisfied and will visit Hair Philosophie by Jing Monis again in 2 to 3 months for my maintenance and trim. If you want to visit it too, they are located at the 2nd Floor, Abreeza Corporate Center, every day during mall hours.
