At one point, we've all found ourselves in need of a haircut, a mani-pedi, or a facial but had no idea where to go—or at least where the best place for what we needed was. Thus, we resort to Google: "best hair salon in Makati" or "foot spa in Pasig," only to be presented with a confusing list of search results that you don't have the energy to review one by one. Thankfully, that struggle might be ending for us soon, because there's finally a directory for all of our beauty service needs!
Meet Parlon.ph—a beauty and wellness service discovery platform founded by Claire Ongcangco. Think Zomato, but for salons! All you have to do is search for a service (say, a haircut or pedicure) and Parlon will show you which of their partner businesses offer it, as well as the price list. You can also search for the exact name of a salon, spa, or beauty clinic on the site and you'll find out its branches, business hours, contact information, as well as the rates of all their services.
Currently, Parlon has 24 partner beauty and wellness businesses in Metro Manila. These include salons like The Color Bar, Creations by Lourd Ramos, and Basement Salon, beauty clinics such as Luminisce, iSkin, and Biocare, nail salons like I Do Nails and Buffed Nail Lounge, and brow and body service brands like Strip and Browhaus. The website is said to add more partners and cover other areas soon, so stay tuned! See all of their partners in the post below:
There you have it—so the next time you're itching for a facial or a new 'do, you know where to look for a place!
