    I found the salon that made me realize that talented stylist doesn't have to be in a very expensive salon. A salon that makes you feel at home and warm. Unlike other salons that I have been, especially those that are famous and expensive such as T&J or David's, this salon made me feel at home and welcome. A lot of laughs and very accomodating group of professionals, yet comfortable to talk about life. Thank you MARS salon. This article got me to try that salon with a risk in mind. I took the risk and I found a huge reward. I love my hair.

      ...And so I went almost 2 weeks ago. Puno sila and sana pala nag pa-appointment ako. pero, regardless mabait sila at na-accomodate pa rin ako. Kahit puno sila naasikaso pa din ako and hair ko. Until now ang ganda pa din ng hair ko. my hair is damage and naayos nila. ni-recommend ko din sa friends ko and pati sila happy.

    Hi everyone, you gals should check out what me and my girlfriends found. There is a salon in muntinlupa city, manila (after Alabang towards south expressway). The place is called "MARS hair and salon". Their service is really really great! I've been in it and their staff are experts at what they do. I've been to Tony and Jackie before and a lot of times. When I found out about this place, I had 2nd thoughts of checking it out. And so I still went there with my friends. Compared to these salon's price tag, their services are a fraction of what these top hair salon charge for and yet provides the same level, if not, better service and same type of products. I had a rebond w/ cellophane and color and cost me around 2200 pesos. The top salons above would have probably charged me 4 times the price. Ridiculous. Highly recommended to check it out. Google them out -> mars hair and salon muntinlupa. Good luck all! I treasure worth looking for.

        OMG! I got my hair colored. I thought they were kidding! I was so happy and they expectations were above and beyond. I would have paid 5 times for the outcome of my hair color. They gave me a quote on their FB page and is within the range of the price quote. Their staff is very friendly and the ambience is soo comfy. I am going back there for my treatment.

      I saw this posting and so I went. After I left the salon, my hair, omg! parang brand new car! Ang ganda! And I went home and ang ganda pa din. since now, 3 weeks after, I still can't believe I have this beautiful hair. I came back to the salon and the staff are so wonderful. they remembered my name and they even offered me free drinks. :) I am definitely coming back and recommend my friends and family. Thanks mars!!! thank you thank you!!!!

    Great examples here, I’m looking at having my comments section re designed, although its clean and simple now I think it could be a little more personal.

    Mac cosmetics 9 pcs brush set has come to many uses for me. I needed a brush set that can serve all the purposes of make up and be convenient to carry. At that time I got a gift from a special person which was this set. It had all the things I needed for my make up and it was so easy to carry also. It has tapered blending brush for suitable blending, angled contour brush, eye liner brush, shadier brush, eye pencil, fluff, blush, concealer etc. All these things are very useful during putting on make up. With good quality and super service, the brushes are good-looking also. And the fibers are so soft that make up application becomes an entertainment. Each of the brushes is very helpful for different types of make up. Here, there are 2 types of eye liner brushes; with one of them, you can add details to your eye. Personally, I love eye make up. So, this set really suits with me. I think that this set is great gift for your wife or girlfriend. Women love make up and a make up brush set with all the necessary kits cannot be of any less importance. A really nice set awaits you. For more details visit

    Please DO NOT patronize Creations by Lourd Ramos!!!
    I went there this afternoon, excited to have a Brazilian Blowout. I had called a week in advance to make an appointment, and double checked that they were using Brazilian Blowout products, and not KeraSilk or KeraTherapy or some other kind... They apparently were. APPARENTLY.
    I got to the salon today, and as my hair was being shampooed, they started trying to sell me on KeraSilk instead. I already told them no, I don't want KeraSilk, I made the appointment because you said you had BB... so what is it really?
    Turns out, they are "phasing out" Brazilian Blowout at their salon, and didn't bother informing me of this when they took my appointment down. They did not have enough product to do my hair, and also didn't tell me this a week ago when I first made the appointment and told them my hair was past shoulder length.
    AND to top it all off, they didn't even apologize!!! As if this whole fiasco was just a matter of fact?!
    Please, if you're trying to find a salon that is relaxing and NOT stressful, go somewhere else. Creations by Lourd Ramos is the least efficient and worst run place I've ever been to (in Manila and abroad).

    I Highly recommend Creations Salon Cedar especially if you want a fresh look. Lourd Ramos will give you a superb look,that matches the contour of your face. An instant make-over! It felt sooo good! Other services and treatments are also a hit. An A-plus for their great customer service! Thanks Creations! Two-thumbs up!

    I'm a huge Piandre fan. My entire family swears by that chain- we have our hair treatments, hair cut, and foot spa there. My mother, my sister, and my daughter go- and while it does look like a pricey salon, it's surprising that it's one of the most affordable of the list. Great customer service in Libis, Alona's the best- I really feel like a queen there!

    Can someone please give a review/feedback on the salons listed, which they themselves have tried? Sometimes, it's pure hype that these salons are listed as the best.

    Feedback from customers or regulars of these salons would be credible.

    Where's Profiles Salon, Katipunan? I love that place; they have competitive prices matched, great staff that provides excellent services. Plus, they serve this special blend of iced tea that you just can't get anywhere else AND it's refillable.

    @ bridget Why the need to list the cheap salons when everyone knows where to find them? listed the good ones that are pricey because you get what you pay for.

  • bridget
    these salons are all high end and located in either makati or 5 star hotels and malls, price ranges for services are not affordable to ordinary Pinoys...can you make a list for middle and low income group Pinoys next time?

      suggestion ko po para sa middle-class at low income is mars hair and salon sa muntinlupa city malapit sa ayala alabang.
