Finding the right salon that does color just the way you like it is a long and hard process. It involves a lot of trial and error, hopping from one salon to the other trying to see if they can do an amazing job, and also, making sure they can re-create it on your next visit. For those of you who are still on the hunt, we asked a few of our trusted Beauty Editors from Preview, Town & Country, and Cosmopolitan Philippines for their recommendations and they unanimously answered JuRo Salon Exclusif as the best in town. Here’s why:
“One of the owners, Rose Velasco, is a master hair colorist who truly has the eye when it comes to mixing and matching colors according to your personality and skin tone. Rose and co-owner Jude Hipolito are always ahead of the pack with their styles and techniques. Jude uses an exquisite handmade pair of scissors from a Japanese company called, Mizutani to snip his clients' hair into shape (his cut is known to grow out so well, you won't need to go back for re-shaping until 4-6 months after) while Rose uses only the best hair color brands that don't just give you the most vibrant and long-lasting colors but care for your hair as well.” - Agoo Bengzon, Former Beauty Editor at Large, Preview and Cosmopilitan Philippines
Agoo says, “Lately, Rose has been using an Italian brand called Elgon (she and Jude did intensive training with the team in Italy just a few months back), and Olaplex, a revolutionary hair product that all the top stylists abroad use on Hollywood celebs like Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Lopez, and Emma Stone.”
“No one beats colorist Rose of JuRo salon, who acquired her mastery of the craft through professional training and work in Europe. It's rare to find a colorist knowledgeable enough to know that while you may go to her with a printed photo of what hue you want, she should still mix her own colors tailored to your complexion. It makes ALL the difference. She understands that pegs are merely jump off points and relates clearly what you want without the cosmetology jargon, doing away with the 'ash brown' this, 'honey butter' that talk. 'You mean a lighter shade of brown with highlights that look natural and not like dry, multiple blonde clip-ons?' she suggests, as if reading your mind.” - Nicole Limos, Beauty Editor, Town & Country Philippines
“Even in color application, she matches the direction of highlights to how your hair moves and the shape of the cut, which truly emphasizes the face. Coloring is a ritual really worth outsourcing," Nicole adds.
