Everybody loves getting pampered, be it getting their hair or nails done, getting a massage, getting their daily dose of gluta, or even just shopping. On your regular run-of-the-mill pamper session, you’d probably get these things done in separate places. So, would you be surprised if I told you you can get all of this done in one single place? That’s exactly what Meraki Beauty Station and Celebrity Overruns is all about.
Meraki and Celebrity Overruns are owned Celebrity Stylist Racquel Gutierrez and Choreographer Paolo Infante. Both are involved with GMA 7, which is why it isn’t surprising that they have an array of preloved and brand new celebrity clothing at their disposal.
If you’re worried about getting scammed by these items, don’t be. They’re the real deal. They have items from Anthony Rosaldo, Billy Crawford, Colleen Garcia, and many more.
On display are a few of the celebrity overruns available at their store.
The place is compartmentalized into several areas for privacy; this is their nails station.
Right beside their nail station is the hair station where you can get treatments from haircuts to hair spas.
Their hair expert has been in the industry for over 10 years, mastering techniques in styling and coloring.
Aside from the nail and beauty stations, they also have a separate area for all of your laser needs.
When you enter the place, you might be a bit confused at first. Is it a salon, a boutique, or an aesthetic center? Well, it’s all of that. Since the owners originally wanted it to be a concept store, the beauty salon has an amazing place for shoppers alike. It will even have a recording studio soon!
Being a concept store, they also offer several beauty products.
Their services range from hair treatments and hairstyles to IV drips to nail services to warts removal to pimple injection to laser treatments to eyelash extension to waxing to facials and massages. How convenient is it never having to go to different places to get everything done?
They don’t just have celebrity clothes; they have high-end bags and shoes, too!
It’s a real haven for shoppers because they even have scents for your home available!
During our visit, we tried their Premium Full Dye Color (Php3000), Gel Polish (Php450), Eyelash Extensions (Php850) and Hair Spa (Php600). I was a bit hesitant to get my hair done because they specialize in so many things, so I was pleasantly surprised by the outcome. I finally got the Ashley O vibe of my dreams. It was my first time having to get my hair bleached for optimum color and I’ve heard horror stories about getting extremely dry hair, but I didn’t experience that due to the hair spa treatment I got afterwards.

Aside from skincare, they also have a ton of cosmetic products available at your disposal!

For the eyelash extensions, they use both real human hair and synthetic hair, resulting in a natural-looking finish. It looks great and shaves off a lot of time when you’re getting ready because you won’t have to put on mascara anymore. Meraki is also gearing to include acrylic nails to their already extensive list of services available.
Spending over half a day at Meraki Beauty Station didn’t even feel that long! Time flew by like a breeze because of all the things we could do! I was also able to meet a couple of celebrities that were being handled and styled by Racquel, so take your chance and you might just end up having your next pamper session next to your favorite celebrity!
