i could’ve had it done here in melbourne but i waited. patiently. my hair was getting too long it was annoying me.
“3 more months… 1 month… 2 weeks… 1 week…” i was counting down the days.
by the time we got to cebu, i was just about ready to chop it all off. no, not really. but you know, by then i was sick of it. and it didn’t help that my go-to hairdresser at david’s salon in gaisano tabunok was no longer there. as a matter of fact, the entire salon wasn’t there anymore.
so at my sister’s recommendation, i went to bridges salon instead, reputed to be one of the best in cebu. posh as. a bit on the expensive side but the service was great so i can’t complain. for 2,000 pesos (about $51), the stylist did his magic and transformed me to look more human and less of a hag. with freshly intensive-conditioned scalp, to boot. not that i planned to get such hair treatment but he said i needed it. sitting on his chair, who was i to go against professional advice so i went with it.
to be honest, i don’t know if it has made a significant effect on the overall state of my mane but, whatever. i’m just really glad i had my hair finally cut. talk about feeling lighter!
aeva had her hair cut too. here we were goofing around waiting for her to finish.
and to cap the day off, pre-bedtime saw us taking selfies of ourselves with our new hair and ‘beautiful’ shirt. the one she insisted i wore so i could go twinning with her. i can’t say no to this kid. i love her so much! ❤

Nothing like a good haircut! When I first moved back to Australia, I’d always wait until I went back to Singapore or Malaysia to get my haircut. Then I decided there must be some good hairdressers here in Melbourne…and finally after so long as of a few years ago, I stumbled upon a great shop and a great hairdresser here 😀 For some reason, I’m always more comfortable with Asian hairdressers lol. They just have the kind of touch that I like 😀
i know, right?! i actually had to shop around for filo hairdressers within my area and believe me, there aren’t many of them. good thing i found one, though, as recommended to me by jeff’s cousin. otherwise, i thought the next best thing would be to go to springvale and get myself some random asian hairdresser and hope for the best. lol.
and here i thought i was the only one who would be patient enough to wait until i get to my homeland to get a haircut! lol. you reckon that’s an asian thing? 😀
I think it’s an Asian thing. I haven’t actually had a haircut by a non-Asian person…the thought of that is not comfortable with me. I feel like an Asian hairdresser would have the techniques I like cutting my hair, lol. One of them is layering which I love so much 🙂
so true!!!! at the back of my mind, there’s always this question, “can this person do my layers right?” hahaha. it always makes me nervous at the start, especially when it’s a new stylist i go to.
women and hair. we can go on and on. lol
but, hey, a possible blog material for you! tee-hee.
Hahaha! That is exactly the same question I ask whenever I got a new hairdresser. A lot of them never like to cut layers 😦 But it’s layers that gives hair volume. I last cut my hair a couple of months ago and the layers are still there 😀
layers look even nicer after a few months, you notice? i especially appreciate them more when they’ve grown out. but only to a particular length. longer than that and i start looking like a hag. lol.
I love a haircut that grows to look better as it grows. I don’t mind walking away from the hairdresser looking like I have ‘too thin’ hair if I know it is a good cut. It will just grow out and grow better and look better and better 🙂 Very hard to imagine you looking like a hag. Always awake looking and on point in your photos 🙂
that’s because i deliberately pick the photos where i look good in them so my future grandchildren who would be reading my blog would think i was a pretty hot grandma. lol.
Looks great! 🙂
