What makes you feel more confident? Stilettos that make you look tall and feel sexier? Your on fleek makeup? Your bomb ass outfit? Your smile that lights up any room? We all have that certain “confidence booster”. Mine happens to be my hair. I love getting out of my comfort zone, taking risks with it, and proving to myself that I could pull anything off.
I’ve tried getting a short bob, a pixie cut, a mushroom cut (LOL), and a boy cut. I’ve tried dyeing my hair brown, jet black, super red, dark gray, black to blonde ombre, black-hot pink-pastel pink tricolor ombre, and brown to blonde ombre.
When the day came that I felt like I wanted something more “ashy”. I researched about it and learned that I had to have my hair bleached first. NOTE bleaching can really damage your hair, so it’s best to have it done by a professional. I DID go to a professional. I fortunately came across Azta Urban Salon’s Facebook page and saw their hair color transformations. Everything was amazing; I was SOLD IMMEDIATELY! (Please see my past post for my first ever Azta experience)
Fast forward to January 5, 2018, I was in Manila because I met up with some of my former classmates. I took the opportunity to book an appointment with Azta Urban Salon’s Eastwood Branch. (I currently trust only them to bleach my hair!) You can contact Azta through their facebook account or their mobile numbers (posted on their facebook along with photos of their price list). They reply to every inquiry and are extremely helpful! Aside from scheduling an appointment, you can also ask them if a certain hairstyle can be done on your hair and approximately how much it would cost. Tip: What I do is I send them a photo of my hair goal and a photo of my current hair.

I arrived at their Eastwood branch at around 2pm, the place looked busy that time but they attended to me immediately. Last time my stylist was their amazing creative director, Jo Tubato. This time around my stylist was the lovely Ms. July Flores, assisted by JM. She was so nice and very professional. She knew exactly what to do, how to achieve what I wanted, and how long the process would be. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who wants to book an appointment at Azta. JM was great too! Very friendly. I didn’t even mind that I had to stay there for 7 hours because of the 3 bleaching cycles haha

See the super fast forward version of the process below (and please don’t pay attention to my ginormous forehead HAHA):
The finished product (made out of dreams!):
If you want a super cool hair color change too, I highly suggest visiting Azta.
