Korean Wave

If you frequently pass Makati Avenue, then you surely won’t miss this three-storey building that houses the salon. Its minimalist design and clean, white walls, matched with window panels dressed with L’Oreal Professionnel images, stand out from the sea of restaurants on the block.


Ample and free parking space, on-the-house drinks, and complimentary wi-fi access are just some of the many perks one gets when availing of the establishment’s services. But, more than these, it’s the salon director, Kim Dong Gyu or Kei for short, that will make you a convert of this beauty hub.

With celebrity clients such as Kwong Sang Woo (once The Face Shop’s endorser) and Kim Tae Hee (of Stairway to Heaven) under his belt, you are assured to get star treatment as well. But this doesn’t mean that you’ll end up looking like a Korean, too! 

Lee Kei
Kei understands the Filipina: “They are not adventurous.They don’t like wavy [hair], and prefer to have it [hair] relaxed or rebonded (P4,500 and up).” This is totally opposite from what Koreans like which is wavy, with lots of color.

When asked what he recommends for us Filipinas, he gave quite an amusing answer: “Filipinas have cute faces, so [better to] try getting big curls.” They have services such as Digital Perm (P3,500) and Setting Perm (P3,500) that can deliver sexy, wavy hair.


Hair color goes from P2,500 and up, with Kei recommending colors such as matte blond, golden blonde and ash blonde as must-tries. Those who wish to get a haircut (P500 up) should consider getting bangs. Kei suggests side-swept bangs for a sweet and feminine look.

As for me, Kei did a wonderful job cutting my hair and giving it a new color as well.  Been getting compliments for his work, and he's such an easy stylist to work with—friendly and very hands on.

*Call 403-3728 for inquiries or appointments. Lee Chul Hair KerKer is located at #1 Constellation Street corner Makati Avenue, Bel-Air Village, Makati City.

Have a great weekend, everyone!  I'll see you at the Rockwell bazaar? :)

I heard so many raves about this Salon Jane. Can't wait to see your new haircut and hair color in person! I'll definitely give this salon a try once my hair grew a bit longer :D
