Kilay 2005

When I was in the Philippines I frequented the salon for my hair, nails, foot spa and eyebrows done. You can get much of this pampering back home since it's not that expensive. I paid less than Php500.00 for everything. Sometimes it does include foot massage especially if you are one of the constant customers. My husband knew this very well coz everytime he called me on weekends I am always in the salon hehehe.

So when I arrived here he asked me when I'm going to go to the salon. I told him I'll check first for prices. But the prices I discovered are really a standoffish. I told my hubby I will wait till I get back to Philippines for my hair hehehe. I can't afford the $75.00 just for my hair, cutting with style, hot oil then blow drying. Another $25.00 for nails without footspa and tip. So I decided to do my nails myself. I maybe forced to go to the salon if I can't bear my in-grown nails and dry skin or else I'll land with a podiatrist.

Heneway, in as much as I want to do my kilay by myself it really needs an expert to shape & tame it and mow the unwanted hair. In PI my kilay shaper used a razor/blade to do it. Then I will follow it thru with a tweezer before I will have another eyebrow fix within a month. On Tuesday me and my friend decided to go to the mall and we passed by this stall who do any type of eyebrow fix. Shaping, styling, waxing and others except tattoo. She had eyebrow wax. I thought of just the razor but she said waxing takes longer for your eyebrow's hair to grow back compared to using razor. So I tried it. The first time the lady pulled off the waxed part...urgghhh..I almost pee..T'was my first time eh. The result is okay for me but I like my kilay when I was in Philippines thou.

I have here comparison of my kilay in PI and my kilay here in US. Kayo na ang humusga =)

My "kilay when I was still in Philippines. I paid Php10.00 for it.

My "kilay" after 7 months of living here in the US. I am using tweezer to pull the excess hair.

My "kilay" after I let it waxed on Tuesday. I paid $10.00 for it. My eyes still sleepy. Bagong gising eh..blog kaagad lolz.

Bless, mahal talaga ang pa-beauty dito and if you want you ingrown nails be taken care of, wag na lang ikaw pumunta sa salon dito dahil you'll never be satisfied with their cleaning...You can clean better than the salon here...maiinis ka lang.. When you go back sa Pinas, doon ka magpa-pamper and you'll really be satisfied.....I added you up on my links, hope you don't mind. Thanks!

hi Bless, honest opinion ha? I like ur kilay in the Phils da best. Taray look. Baka next time kelangan mong magdala ng photo para ipakita sa kilayshaper jan. Pero maganda pa rin ang result ha. I wish I had your deep set eyes :)

Tess said...

wow, danda babae! Parehong maganda for me. ako naman dati i used to pluck my kilay pero tamad na ako ngaun so ginagaya ko nalang yong ginagawa dati sa kilay ko when i was in the Phil, blade nga lang ginagamit nong bakla sa akin e, ang bilis bilis pa and i used to pay P20 for it, minsan halos libre na pag dami akong pinapagawa. I'm seriously looking how much is hair straigthening here kasi sanay akong at least once a year nagpapaunat ng hair sa atin e, super mahal yata dito.

Hi Bless! both looking good to me. =) ang presyo lang ang malaki ang pagkakaiba, mahal talaga ang bayad dito kumpara sa atin sa Pinas. buti na lang sa akin hindi ako nagpa-pluck ng kilay, otherwise hindi ko ma-afford..hehehe!
take care and God Bless!

Tess salamat. Mahal jud dri i asked nga one time dito sa salon kasi every 6 months din ako nagparelax ng hair sa atin. I have a very curly hair before eh. It will cost me almost a hundred bucks here if magparelax. Mahal jud kaayo. Misugod na ra pud ug kulot ako buhok...unsaon na lang!

Ay Bongga si manay, sosyal ka day parlor sa kilay? Gosh, pwede diay? Ignoramus kaau ko no, halata bag-o lang nakanaog sa bundok bwe he he. I have no idea if I have the guts to ask someone to meddle my kilay, maiyak-iyak na nga ako sa sakit. But I like your kilay made in the phils. Super taray ang dating or baka dahil sa lightings lang, or totoong bagong gising ka lang sa isa he he he... anyway, hapi weekend sa inyo duha :-)

Three years ago, My friend taught me how to pluck properly however it was painful unitl my cousin from Japan visited me and saved me. Kita niyang I was in pain and lumoluha na tong mga mata ko sa ka control nang sakit. She felt sorry for me kaya binigyan me eyebrow shaver parang blade, pero mas safety. No more pain afterward. I believe that they are selling it on the drug store now. Take care eh
