Acqua Salon


Way back in 2006, I was looking for a Good Salon within the Neighborhood. Before, I used to go to Toni and Guy in 6750 to have a haircut. It was a bit of a hassle, and not to mention so expensive! I have also tried David’s Salon, Ricky Reyes, Etc. Until one of my friend told me that he read an article in a magazine that there was this new salon that opened in Westgate Alabang, and there was a sought after stylist there – MJ. So I called the salon and scheduled an appointment, with MJ of course. And the rest was History, I have been a loyal client ever since… I was also able to brought in some friends which also became regular clients.

Acqua Salon Is located in Westgate Alabang. So far, it is the only salon in Westgate. They are located behind Alabang Home Depot, beside Tips and Toes and Kanin Club. It is also conveniently located near Gymboree and Fitness First.

Acqua Salon resides in a Cute and Sophisticated 2-Storey establishment. Upon entry, you will be greeted by the friendly people at the reception area.

The Reception, nagtago si ate :p njan sya sa ilalim :p

One of the main difference of Acqua Salon from the competitors is their shampoo area. Normally (on other salons) you will be sitting on a chair with your head tilted back on the sink attached to the chair when you get a shampoo or a rinse – Which is very painful on the neck area especially if you will be shampooed or rinsed for quite some time. In Acqua, it is different, you will be shampooed lying down on this comfortable bed. You can really enjoy the shampooing better. No neck pains! even if you get rinsed for an Hour!

When you are lying down, you can see this glowing ceiling complementing the dim lights, the soothing music, and the amazing scalp massage.

Shampoo time in Acqua is a very pleasant experience, not only you are in a comfortable position, but the person shampooing your hair does a good job in Massaging your scalp! It is a very relaxing experience.. The Shampooing normally takes around 10 minutes.

TIP: If it is your first time in Acqua Salon, try asking for Ivan or Allan to assist your stylist. Their shampooing and scalp massage is excellent!

Since the place is quietly located inside Westgate in Alabang, the place is not that crowded. Together with the Soothing Music and a great ambiance, your stay will be as relaxing as it can be.

Most of Acqua’s clients come from the nearby villages. A lot of foreigners also visit for a Cut or Treatment.

My hair is not spectacular but if it wasn't taken cared of by her, I'm sure it will be worse :p

I’m sure if she can tame my hair, she can probably do better with yours! :p

At first it may seem that you have to rob a bank to pay for their services. But Surprisingly, their services are very affordable. For example, the haircut for men is P250 and for women, its P280. That is even cheaper than David’s. Their other services too are very reasonably priced. They Do Make-Up, Hair Treatments, Massages, etc.

  3. I wish I saw your blog before going there. Unfortunately, I got a cut there last weekend. The stylist who did my hair was Danny and I didn't have a very good experience with him.

    He went through my strands with no car in the world and my hair- although not great- looks worse for wear. Instead of something sleek, i have a shag reminiscent of the 80's! Worse even, he was so sungit. My hair paid the price...

    So those of you who value your locks, please don't ask for Danny.

  5. It was my first time at Aqua Salon in West Gate and I was not disappointed.
    I have been to different salons like David's, Piandre, Jun Encarnacion, Going Straight, Ricky Reyes etc.but nothing compares to Aqua Salon.The place is clean and not crowded. All the staff are efficient and friendly especially Mr. Danny Adrao. Contrary to Unlucky locks I am happy on my new look.
    I will surely recommend Mr. Danny of Aqua salon to my family and friends.=)

  7. For around 3 years now me and my guy have always been styled by Sir Danny and he has never failed us. He gets what we want to do with our hair, and works with us by suggesting what he thinks will make it better. He is not like some stylists we've encountered in other salons who will insist on what they want and ignore your wishes..and you end up paying the price. What we like about him is that he asks for the budget you have in mind and he does his best within your budget. He doesn't get annoying and is always respectful. Plus, he follows us up after a couple of weeks when he knows we are due for treatments, which is very handy because his reminders help us squeeze in much needed hair time in our busy schedules. In fact, I'm about to go there again tom to have a treatment. We definitely recommend Sir Danny of Acqua Salon in Westgate. :)
