I've been a Piandre client for so long, but somehow this Sunday i wanted to try a new salon. Ended up at Basement salon in SM Aura. I didnt have an appointment but asked the reception if i could be squeezed in for a footspa with pedicure and hair color. They took me in, i didn't even have to wait that long.

Receptionist: Cordial and efficient.

Waiting area: a little tight but has lots of magazines

Workstation: nice interiors, clean, a little cramped though. The usual offering of tea, coffee etc..

Hair rinsing area: Superb! the chair supports your back and neck you wont end up with a rickety neck after your rinse

Footspa: nobody on their right mind would call that a Footspa. More like a foot soak. They soaked my feet on water, scrubbed, rinsed with warm water, applied jergens lotion all under 15mins. Footspa in piandre is 1.5 hours, it was so relaxing you'll feel the tension leaving your entire legs. So anyway, don't go here for a "footspa".

Pedicure: it was ok, they use a metal pusher so i had to remind the pedicurist not to push my nails too hard. She was very friendly and happily obliged.

Hair color: The real test of hair color is after a week, if the color doesn't fade or change tones no matter how many times you take a shower then you'll know its good enough. But it would be remiss if i don't mention my hair didn't smell like ammonia afterwards. Which was awesome! In Piandre, even their ammonia-free still has that "you just had your hair colored" smell. Not this one, the stylist said it was L'oreal and the shampoo and conditioner they use after. Whatever it was, i loved that it didn't smell.

Stylist: this is hard, I'm not really sure how good he was as i only interacted with him when he asked me what i wanted to do with my hair and tried to upsell another service. Other than that i was left with his assistant who colored, shampooed and blow dried my hair. He checked on me after it was all done and got a mirror for me to check how the back of my head looks like. Suffice it to say, i gave the assistant a bigger tip than the stylist.

Planned to have my bangs trimmed and budgeted around P300-500 for it so I was utterly shocked when they told me that it was for free! Hahaha may come back here for my haircut just because I liked their service today 128522

My to go to salon place whenever I need a gel mani and pedi.

Simple interiors but they have a nice friendly service. They offer complimentary cappuccinos and other drinks.

Nails are done good and clean. Am particular with the way my polish is applied. And they do it perfectly, until the edges! I rarely do my foot spa here for its not as extensive and nice as Nailtropics.

I've done color, hair cut, hair treatments, etc. and so far so good. Look for Erwin and Jason.

Sorry folks, no photo.

I visited Basement a couple of months back. This is when i commited stylist adultery. I have a regular stylist but proximity issues opted me to cheat. I used rock a pixie haircut, i did the undercut way before Miley cut her hair. I did the one side shaved thingy Riri style. I even had a mohawk. I like experimenting with my hair. The most common style that i do is Keira Knightley's hair in Domino.

Anyway, back to my crime. It took me massive amounts of strength to cheat on Fredy (my stylist). It was a gloomy weekday afternoon. Went to Aura to get a quick haircut, settled on Basement (Toni and Guy is too pricey). Picked one of the junior stylists and sat down. I forgot his name, i said, cut my hair, disconnected style. I didnt show a photo, i just said, i dont want any hair on touching my nape. He was a lil hesitant at first, but he got his groove going after a couple if minutes.

The verdict. He did a decent job, he did a slightly longer Mia Farrow-ish do. I still prefer Fredy though (Halo Effect, folks). Will i comeback? No, this is the first and last time i am committing stylist adultery.

Note: Mia Farrow, the star of Rosemary's Baby. One of the scariest films ever, directed my the infamous Roman Polanski. He is the husband of the late Sharon Tate (The pregnant actress brutally murdered by the Manson Family)

Spent P800 for a haircut!! 128551 but it didn't feel like I got my money's worth. My hairdresser just asked me what I wanted to do with my hair. I kinda expected he'd analyze my hair first and then recommend something suitable for me. He cut my hair for just about 5 minutes and that's it 128531 Nyaah.

Finally! I had color correction. 128514 Hello! That's me. lol. I had it changed to a darker color. 128513

The place was great. Not too spacey but the place was nice and staff were very accommodating tho my stylist was a little hard to understand. 128514 She's Japanese. She's not too fluent in English. They also offer cookies while having the service. It's worth it too! 9786

I love my new hair color! 128135

I didn't know they read LooLoo! 128514
They know my name now! Ahhh so happy! Great customer service! Hahaha hi Basement,I love you. 128514

Anyway,that's Jacob,their junior stylist,a clearer picture. Haha! He did my color before and now my haircut.

He's really attentive with what to do with your hair. Very nice too. Ask for him for when you have a hair problem or just want to pamper your tresses.

As always,Basement goes above and beyond my expectations. Look at that happy hair! 128135
It's so much lighter now!

Might book for color soon. Haha

Call 801-66 66 for appointments!!!! 128512

I was so stressed out with work that I felt a need to pamper and reward myself.
Fabio salsa in Rockwell is under renovation and since I live in Fort Bonifacio,I decided to give Basement Salon a try. And boy I'm glad I did! 128077

This branch, is solely owned by the Webbs. They were there when I visited.

I had a mani-pedi-foot spa first.

They were generous with the scrub and they really make sure your foot doesn't have calluses and dead skin by feeling your heel and foot. If it's not good enough for you or them, they will scrub again until it feels smooth.

While doing treatments, they offer you your choice of coffee,tea,iced tea,Coke or water!!! 128514
This is the first time I've been in a salon who offers customers so much variety. I was impressed.
I was even more impressed when they offered cookies. Kahit na Chips Delight Lang,they made sure their customers did not go unattended and cared for. Every whim was given!

I also had my roots done and pantay yung color! Huhu I was so happy. And the way they blow dry your hair is very meticulous. If you want it straight, may body haha or curled, they can do it. You have the option. Not like other salons na they don't bother to ask.

The salon also has nice selection of songs. Latch by disclosure and waves by mr pobz!!! They chose contemporary and modern ones fit for the age group of the customers who usually go that time.

Prices are a bit steeper than your usual salon but if the service is impeccable and flawless,wouldn't you want to get a bang for your buck?

I will definitely come back. 128077128077128077128077128077

Got a cut and treatment from a Jr. Stylist and I am most definitely not disappointed by my choice. Super friendly and his assistant was great. Offers plenty of beverages to choose from and the neck the massages were great! I wish I can come in just for the scalp, neck, and back massage... Def coming back for treatments :)
