When In Manila, you know what’s in! “Aesthetics!!!” Outer beauty is important to almost everyone, especially to girls! There is a big reason though, when you feel that you look good outside, you are confident to do or say anything and act completely yourself. It makes you braver to face the day without hiding anything from anyone!
Realizing this, a lot of skin care products and centers suddenly sprouted in the country. And today, let me tell you about “It Figures Facial and Slimming Salon.” I want to share not just about what I experienced but more info about different aesthetics maintenance processes. I am very grateful that I had the chance to talk to the owners of It Figures Facial and Slimming Salon, the good couple, Mr. Arnold and Ms. Cindy Bagabaldo. 🙂
So before anything else, here are
5 FACTS about It Figures Facial and Slimming Salon
Mr. Arnold and Ms. Cindy Bagabaldo gladly share the story of how It Figures an Facial Salon started.
1. “We didn’t start it to make money, we started it to save money!,” Arnold shares during our conversation.
Arnold and Cindy lives at Antipolo, Rizal and their kids study at De La Salle University. Since it is far from home, they rented a condo unit at Ortigas where Cindy can stay while waiting for their kids from school.
Meanwhile, Cindy confesses that she loves having facial with her friends as her past time thus Arnold thought of a way on how to save money so they rented another space and last June 2011, the world said hello to It Figures Facial and Slimming Salon!
Ms. Cindy gladly talks about It Figures Facial and Slimming Salon! 🙂
2. Their first clients were Cindy’s friends, around twenty instant clients! And a couple of months after, they realized that the “word of mouth” marketing strategy works well! They keep on meeting new clients who return to them every time!
3. Cindy goes back to her hometown, Cebu, whenever possible so the couple opened another branch in Cebu! They target to open 3-4 more branches of It Figures Facial and Slimming Salon this year! And in 2 ½ years they aim to have 100 more branches!
4. To clarify, It Figures Facial and Slimming Salon is not a clinic, they offer everyone an affordable good skin maintenance but they don’t treat skin conditions. And to assure safety, Arnold and Cindy always try their services first before they offer it to their clients.
5. Asked of their greatest achievement?! They share that it is the satisfaction of their customers! Cindy and Arnold find time to talk to their clients to know what they need to improve or add to their services.
Mr. Arnold gladly chats with one of their clients. 🙂
