If money is not an issue then you should head to Philippe Tordjman Le Salon
 and get you the perfect hair cut, the perfect hair color, and more!

“Trend to me is what suits the person,” quips hair expert Philippe Tordjman when asked how he would de ne today’s hair trend.
Philippe casually chats with me, taking mental note of my habits and quirks. Then says, “you’re getting married; you don’t blow dry; and it seems to me you literally don’t do anything to your hair.”

Um… He’s right.

This no-nonsense advice is what you get if you book a service at Philippe Tordjman Le Salon located at Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila. The salon is just about the right size, fuss free, with young, well-trained staff; plus there’s the hands on boss, Philippe.

Once my hair’s been rinsed, Philippe takes the shears and cuts away, giving me a layered bob with asymmetrical bangs.

Then Yenji, Philippe’s senior hair stylist, does my hair color.

Yenji first dyes my hair to achieve a light ash brown color, and shows her assistants how to place the highlights. When done, another rinse, and finally a blow dry.

Then, voila! Got me the perfect-for-me hairstyle.


The basics

Haircut is from Php1,200 (USD24); hair color with highlights from Php7,250.
