My second manicure experience & regretful haircut

Hello guys! I've been MIA for almost 5 days. Been so very busy. I attended our Christian Convention last weekend. So I did some preparation for it, I decided to have a new haircut and have a manicure at my favorite salon near our house.

Last Thursday me and my mom went to "Yoyangs" the salon where I trusted cutting my hair for 3 years na. I was the one who chose mom's haircut and told the stylist to cut her hair "shoulder length" with layers, since mom has pretty curly and thin hair.

While waiting for mom to finish, the manicurist was cleaning the nails on my hands. I don't usually go to salon to have my nails done cause I can do it on my own. But this time, "naisipan ko lang ng mafeel ko naman ang linisan ng iba", the first time that I ever had my first manicure at a salon was last 2009 (before my college graduation) and the feeling is just awesome and sosyal, than doing it on your own! haha It is freaking hurtful on your neck kasi when you do your mani / pedi.

The manicurist (I forgot to ask for her name) is kind and has light hand. Meaning to say, I wasn't hurt a bit while she was removing the ugly cuticles of mine. She is kind enough to compliment my square nails. I love you ate! So on the other hand, after 10 minutes, tapos na si mo, and voila! She looks younger than me sa haircut nya! Sorry but I can't show you an after picture,  I wasn't able to take a picture :(

The salon staffs were in a hurry that time, they will join the parade kasi around 12pm so half day sila, I went over to chair wherein I'll be having my haircut while si ateng manicurist is cleaning my left hand. I saved a picture on my phone for the haircut that I want and this is the inspiration haircut that I want:

Oi, hindi yung kay Robin ha, kay Mariel!

So as usual, bading yung gumupit sa buhok ko, and this is what he said to me 
"Bubuhaghag ang buhok mo pag ganitong gupit"

I told him na hindi naman ganyan kaikli. You know the feeling na negative kaagad yung sinasabi, imbes na magrecommend nalang na
 "Yan po ba ma'am, sige ma'am pero di po natin sya masyadong gagayahin kasi mejo buuhaghag po hair nyo, gawan po natin ng paraan, okay lang po ba".  

Di ba dapat it should be in a right way. Iba na kasi yung unang naggupit sa hair ko e wala na dun. It was kinda frustrating lang na may mga "bading" na di marunong maghandle ng customer. 
Then after 5 minutes yata tapos na yung hair ko. 
Sabi pa nya 
"Pinahirapan nyo ko ma'am ah"!

As if na pinapamukha nyang super kapal ng hair ko. Eh he even finished it within 5 minutes.
So, when I look at the mirror, I was like "OH shocks! Why ang layo sa buhok ni Mariel, why is it too short?" Pero what can I do, it's over na and I can't put back the hair that has been cut. 
Sabi pa ni bading
 "Dapat dito araw araw plantsa. Nagbiro mom ko sabi "plantsa ng damit pwede na jan". The nsabi ng bading "Naku, patay na nga buhok ni ma'am, papatayin nyo pa lalo". 

As if na natuwa ako? I know panget yung hair ko, pero panget na nga papamuha pang panget talaga.Kainis!Eto nga pala yung gupit ko:

Oh di ba ang layo sa inspiration haircut ko?

 Sa inis ko hindi ko sya binigyan ng tip. Si ateng manicurist lang binigyan ko. Here's how my nails look like after my 2nd manicure ever!:

 Oha, goodbye ugly cuticles!

 Well, nasa huli ang pagsisisi. Dapat di nalang ako nagpagupit.
Just wanted to share with you my bad experience.
Anyways, I'll be posting the rest of my lipstick reviews this week and also some of my FOTD's and OOTD's from weekend.




  1. Hihi. We have the same color for my pedicured nails! Silver! :DDD

  2. Aww shucks! :( Suggest ko sis find a new stylist na! If youre not satisfied, wag ka na bumalik!! Sayang pera and HAIR!!:(

    The Misty Mom

  3. Sana makahanap ka ng magaling at polite. Sa totoo lang, ang hirap makahanap. Napamahal ako sa Tony and Jackey, pero keri lang. Magaling yung gumupit sakin. Alam mo yung tipong kahit ang haba na, maganda pa din yung itsura. Every 4 months lang naman ako nagpapagupit so parang ok na din yung price.

    1. Oo sis mahirap talaga, muntik pa nga akong mapaaway dati last year bading din yun. Hays.

  4. tama si Sharina, change your stylist. Pati ako naturn off dun sa gumupit sayo. >_<

  5. Sayang naman sis yung hair mo. anyway, siguro kasi blow dryed yung kay Mariel kaya mahirap i-achieve. Shucks, parang gusto ko din magpagupit!! Hmmm..

    Love your nails ang ganda! Ginupit ko yung sakin to the highest level dahil nahihirapan nako :(((

    1. Pero kasi dati sis pinagaya ko yung style nung kay Bubz Beauty, almost 1 year na yung after narebond hair ko, okay naman kahit mejo curly yung upper area. Nanghinayang din ako sa hair ko pero wala na ko magawa. My fault din hehe nagpagupit pa ko. Dapat trim nalang. Anyway thank you!

  6. Hair grows, no worries girl! At least your manicure rocks. Great blog, would you like to follow each other?


  7. hahaha! sobrang naka.relate ako dito ah! And i can sense your frustration tlga! What are you planning to do with your hair?

    I realized sis it's a mistake tlga na gumamit ng picture ng mga artista as reference kasi mga magagaling tlga stylist nila in the first they all have these expensive hair treatments..

  8. naku sis, dameng bading na unreliable tlga when it comes to haircut.. mganda sana may suki ka na nag-gugupit sau..saka siguro nagmamadali na..:)
    cgro pag humaba..kahit ppno gaganda na ung shape..:)
