It has been a year since the beginning of the pandemic. And, it has been two years since I moved to Boracay and since I last visited a decent salon. I believe it is high time to get a hair makeover on Boracay.

Getting Grey Early

Just like most male members of our family, I started getting strands of grey hair early. If my memory serves me right, I first noticed them in my late twenties. As a quick solution, I would buy a hair dye off the shelf. Then, I would ask my brother to color my hair for me to save me the trouble.

However, in the latter part of last year, I noticed more grey hair than usual. I do not know if it is the pandemic but I have never had this many grey hair in my entire life ever. Since I could not go visit my brother in Pangasinan because of travel restrictions, I went to get my hair dyed in a salon nearby. It was just a regular hair service. Nothing special really. That is why, after two weeks, I noticed my grey hair becoming visible again. I decided to just stop dying my hair and getting a haircut altogether.

Fascination For Platinum Grey

I have always been fascinated by the elves of The Lord Of The Rings and the Mother of Dragons of Game Of Thrones. I thought it must be cool and ethereal even to sport platinum grey hair. So, last month, I bought a silver hair wax and tried it on. It did not really do the job well. It looked good on photo but in reality it looked and felt like I just poured chalk dust on my head.

First Time To Get A Hair Makeover On Boracay

Last Sunday, I grabbed the opportunity to get a hair makeover at probably the best and most trusted salon on the island, LMJ Salon Boracay. I arrived at about four in the afternoon. When asked about what color to use, I told them, “Let us be crazy.” I told them about my fascination for platinum grey hair. They checked my hair. Lo and behold, my hair strands are not that strong to endure two rounds of bleaching apparently. So, they offered to do Metallic Ash Blonde as an alternative.

I am very happy with the results. Thanks to Elven Duardo- the hairstylist. The whole procedure took about 2.5 hours. I was home by 7 PM.
