Today i tried their new branch in UP Town center because i was being impulsive and i wanted a quick haircut. Sad to say, i wish i just waited and went to my usual salon.

My visit started out good. I had the place to myself, i got a scalp massage, and they even gave me drinks.

In the middle of my haircut, i felt a knick on my neck. I asked (the lady) to stop because the back of my neck was 'mahapdi' na. They scratched me na pala. 128530128530 apparently, the clipper they were using was misaligned - the teeth grazed my skin and i started to bleed a little. It may be just an inch-long mark, but its still upsetting.

The thing that annoyed me more than being cut was they sprinkled the wound with powder, brushed it off, and tried to apply "soothing lotion" to it pa. A few minutes later they told me "ay ma'am nag papantal na po".. 'No shit mamaga talaga siya! 128517' Walang first aid sense whatsoever. So i just asked them to not put anything on it, get me something to cover the area, and just finish my haircut. They did. I left.

Ps: i regret kinda being too nice when it happened haha medyo naiinis na ako ngayon.

Pps: yes i paid for the haircut pa!

I went to this place upon the recommendation of a friend. I needed to replace David's salon at Katipunan because my last leg wax there was quite a horrible and stressful experience. The wax here is so-so. The room is not well-lit, neither did they give you proper cover, and the aircon was noisy which did not help customers relax... The waxing room was also cramped. However, the attendant was pleasant and amiable. Because she did do my wax well enough, I explored a facial wax (first time to do this!).

The only thing I did not like about the leg wax was the after-wax process (they wiped you with cold cloth as opposed to being oiled down). You aren't supposed to wet the pores within 4 hours of your wax...?!?! My facial wax was done well with zinc wax BUT they did not ask if I was allergic to their type of wax. Even as they did my leg wax or prior to it, they never asked this question. And I have sensitive skin. So, my chin area feels a bit rough from an allergic reaction to both the zinc wax and the after-wax facial lotion. :( But my face did clear up -- little seemingly unnoticeable facial hair had been removed. I won't do this process again, however. And won't get a leg wax again at this salon.

Furthermore, they charge extra if you ask for threading and my whole leg wax already cost something like php800...!

I also had my nails done. Now, I'm quite obsessive compulsive about the shape of my nails and the application of nail polish. Shape, good. Followed my advice not to nip any cuticle, great. But nail polish application... Let's just say she didn't ask if I wanted two coats or three coats and just decided on her own (and I was having a facial wax as she did my nails so I was kind of distracted) and the top parts of my nails (top part of the polish), which she said she would clean and make sure are shaped right, were not completely shaped right when I got out.

Ah, c'est la vie. But Aura? Never again for me. :(

I was over an hour late for my appointment! The mani/pedi was a bit long (kaya dapat cleaning lang128540), but I really needed it! Despite being late (and the late hour), Aura was able to accommodate me, no questions asked!128079 kudos, great service!128516

Just didn't like my blowout so much this time, not very bouncy...

Ms Jessica has been my stylist forever! She knows what works on me and as usual, I love it! This place has very good service, the attendants are always so welcoming and helpful... I've been a loyal customer for over a decade! I've gone from straight to curled, short to long, bangs and sans bangs, while maintaining a healthy head of hair! Very happy camper here, now with bangs!128077

I love my new haircut!
Not too drastic, just the right amount of 'different'

The stylist ms. Rose was very helpful, i did not know what new hairstyle to try and she gave good suggestions and also respected my preferences.

I did not want bangs but i agreed to have some just to be a bit adventurous and asked her to keep it long. Ms. Rose obliged and had my bangs in just the right length :) shampoo was relaxing and they charged me for just 250! (Maybe it's a student discount?)

Had my hair and makeup done here for a wedding.

Lyn (sp?) did my makeup, and I must say she was able to make a great job at making me look less unattractive :)) I brought my own false eyelashes, and it really added oomph! to her already amazing job!

Special mention to Jed and Janice for helping out Lyn in curling my hair and doing my manicure, respectively 128522

Haven't been to Aura in years (i think 2008 was the last time), but when i got there for a trim, the receptionist still remembered my name! "Ma'am Ramirez diba? ano po ulet first name?" Now that's service. Got a trim, and the scalp massage during the shampoo was nice, if it were any longer, nakatulog nako! Stylist also made suggestions to make the most out of my haircut! Trim was 300 which is relatively cheap for a salon in my own opinion :) downside was it was a bit hot, or could also be the intense summer heat!
