Whenever I hear of Balmain, only one person comes to mind—one of my (many) girl crushes, Kendall Jenner. Known for their high-end couture on the runways, the brand complemented their luxury ensembles by creating wigs and hair extensions before evolving their hair couture to a series of products that focus on hair care and styling.
Last June 20, Headzone Salon (located on the 6th floor of Shangri-La Plaza East Wing) launched the entire collection and held a posh event to showcase each product. It became a school reunion of some sort, because I was invited by a friend from Poveda and incidentally, the host and DJ were also Povedans from a lower batch (Katz Salao and Jessica Milner).
While munching on hors d’oeuvre from Bizu and helping ourselves to refreshing cocktails, Katz quickly introduced each product—beginning with the Moisturizing Care series, to the Volume Care, to the Styling. There was even a short game where the best Instagram post of the night would win an entire set of the Volume Care (worth Php 8,000) and I was lucky enough to have won! It’s actually also super perfect, because you guys all know how fine my hair is and how hard it is for me to create and maintain volume, so I can’t wait to start using the products. I’ll write a separate review on them once I’ve tried it out for a few weeks.
If you’re interested to try the products, you can book the Balmain Intensive Hair Treatment at Headzone Salon to experience luxury hair care and maybe even purchase some!
