One lazy Saturday, I had a chance to pamper myself and avail of Studio Zen’s haircut, blow-dry, Bonacure hair repair treatment, foot spa, and manicure and pedicure. Would you believe, it only took a couple of hours to finish everything because a team of beauty experts worked on me simultaneously.
First, one of their professional stylists, Mr. Pat Abog, assessed my hair so I can get the proper treatment, instead of simply whisking me away to the shampoo area like in other salons. Studio Zen makes sure to know their clients before the actual treatment begins. Some of their stylists have even trained in the world-renowned Vidal Sassoon Academy in Shanghai, China.
The Bonacure Moisture Kick treatment began right after my hair was washed. I liked that the stylist chose the products that were appropriate for my dry and color-treated hair. This specific treatment is supposed to promote color retention and protect the hair structure. After the product application came the steam procedure, which took around 15 minutes. During the steaming process, one of the salon’s staff gave me a relaxing back massage. All the while, I was getting both manicure and foot spa treatments. I felt like a princess for feeling so pampered!
While my tired feet soaked in a footbath, a nail technician started to prep my fingernails for the manicure. I was seated right beside the sterilizing equipment where they clean the nail tools so I felt very comfortable with having my nails done there. The nail technician meticulously prepped my nails and cuticle before applying some fancy polish. I chose a classic red hue to flatter my fingers. The salon has a nice selection of nail polish—with brands ranging from Sally Hansen to Orly.
As I was getting a manicure, my feet enjoyed a soothing foot spa where I was able to get a good foot scrub and massage. The scrub felt especially nice since the product had some peppermint scent that felt cool on my legs. For me, a foot spa is the ultimate way to spoil yourself. Nothing beats getting a fantastic foot rub and feeling your soft and smooth feet after. To top it off, I got the perfect pedicure to match the color of my fingernails.
After my Bonacure treatment, Mr. Pat suggested that I get a haircut to bring some life to my limp and straight hair. He did nothing drastic; just clipped off some strands here and there, and gave my `do some much-needed layers. He even gave it more body as he dried my hair.
A couple of hours later, I left Studio Zen with a big smile on my face and an improved new me. Even fellow writer, Jariss, got a new look. She came in with long, wavy hair, and went out with a cropped and edgy hairstyle.
