When was the last time I had my hair cut and treated?
I seldom visit any salon because I would want to assume my hands are always full cooking for, taking care of and looking after my boys. And everyday, my hair would always be twisted into a bun just to keep it away from my face. Though it gives me the neat feel, I often look losyang.
Getting an invite to The Mane Event of Going Straight Salon and Nouvelle is an opportunity for me then to finally give my locks some little tender loving care they very well deserve.
Until the day comes and I almost back out. My 10-month-old son is too clingy and shows some real separation anxiety drama. Add to that is the need to fetch my 10-year-old son from school and I know I just cannot be home by that time.
But I am a great believer of the Yhprum’s Law. The exact opposite of the famous Murphy’s Law “Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.”
Everything, that can work, will work.
Anyway, I am one of the early birds at the Going Straight Salon in SM North Edsa. After a few minutes and comes the briefing.
Going Straight Salon is one of the pioneers in hair straightening. Founded in 1988 , a husband and wife tandem opened a salon specializing in hair straightening and hair care treatments. Their wise decision to concentrate on hair straightening paid off as customers become frequent clients and though a number of salons offer hair straightening services, Going Straight has become a household name and the name to beat.
The 28-year old company manages to keep up with the latest trends in hair care. They constantly send their stylists to training. They upgrade their branches to welcome in the latest salon equipment and facilities. They partner with only the best brands to give their clients only the best services.
One brand Going Straight uses in all outlets is Nouvelle, a leading player in professional hair coloring. Made in Italy, Nouvelle is considered a trendsetter as it has created a new young and contemporary generation of color and style. Its special formula, with no ammonia or parabens, does not damage the hair nor irritate the scalp and includes herbs that are designed to restore the natural balance of hair.
Going Straight has a selection of competent stylists and when asked who I prefer to style my hair, I choose Mark. He has been with the salon for a number of years and is stationed at SM Megamall branch. I saw a few of his works during the short briefing and presentation of core group leaders. He made a great first impression on me. I saw confidence in his body language, facial expression, and voice projection. I likewise like his high energy and positive attitude.
After about four hours and finally we’re done. And I like the reflection I saw in the mirror. Mark used Nouvelle Lively hair color technology to bring life both to my hair and face.
Sometimes, systems that should not work, work nonetheless. I am thankful that I pushed through. If not, I would not have known how great Going Straight is with hair care, how Nouvelle products differ from other professional hair colorings, and how I can have a fabulous hairstyle even if I just stay at home.
I even have some take-home tokens to give my hair an intense, natural, and shiny color that would last for months. Add to that is my new Going Straight Salon privilege card so I could avail of special discounts and promos on my succeeding visits. I could even share my privilege card with my family!
Thank you Going Straight and Nouvelle for this special treat. For the longest time, I just content myself with my long boring hair. I do not allow others to color it as I would like to see my gray hair grow. But now, I am loving both my new hairstyle and color which most of my friends would describe, suit me. I love it even that my it makes my husband’s head turn.
