HELP! Where to Go for Hair & Make-up in Makati

...Since you have stayed in Manila for quite some time too, where can I go for hair and make up that is good, but price is not too high? Preferably Makati area please. I hope you can help. Thanks!

I received this question from a reader and I hope we can all help her out! I don't really get try out different salons since I tend to stick to my favorite salon, Hairworks. I go there because they have the best hair colorists and Novi, my threader, has the lightest hands. She's the only threader that I have not had a painful relationship with, so she comes highly recommend. I can bet my eyebrows on that! =)

I hardly wear make-up, even when I go to formal events, so I have not tried their make-up services. So sorry! All in all, I go to Hairworks because I always feel that I get my money's worth whenever I pop in for a haircut, manicure/pedicure, hair coloring or threading. If you'd like to try this salon, it's at:

Ground Level BSA Tower
108 Legaspi St., Legaspi Village
Makati City
Tel. 888-4817, 888-4819, 888-4816

I've also heard of reasonably priced and reputable salons like Tony & Jackey and Razzle Dazzle. These salons have received great reviews so these are worth checking out:

Tony & Jackey
G103 West of Ayala Bldg.
Buendia Avenue
Makati City
Tel: 843-7571, 0906-3659155

Razzle Dazzle Salon
Monday-Saturday 8am-8pm
Sunday 9am-6pm
Ground Floor Frabella Condo
109 Rada St., Legaspi Village
Makati City
Tel. 840-2880, 848-2388 for

I know it is not much help, but if you click here you'll find a comprehensive list of salons in Makati to give you an idea of possible places to go to.

Darn, when it comes to hair and make-up I'm practically useless huh? Really, I'm grasping for words as I type this. I can talk on and on about clothes and accessories, but when it comes to beauty matters, I'm kind of really low maintenance in that sense, hehehe.

So to my dear friends, if any of you have tried and tested salons in Makati, please help us out and tell us all about your favorite salon!

I used to go to Propaganda on the 3rd level of the old Greenbelt. Above the old theaters. I used to see Gigi there. Of course that was over 5 years ago, but hopefully she's still there, or if not, the other master stylists there were all celebrities themselves like Jing Monis and Juan Sarte.

Hi! I haven't been there in over 6 months since I'm still here, but I would say about Php5000. Look for Christine, she's the colorist if I'm not mistaken. Jeez, I'm getting old and I can't remember if that's the right name. But if I saw her I would know its her. Hehehe!
