Boracay Island Warnings and Dangers: 53 reviews and 39 photos


If you value your hair, don't go anywhere near this place! They let unsupervised trainees loose on customers hair while groups of onlookers (off-duty staff? Friends? Who knows?) look on, smirking, giggling and generally making you feel uncomfortable. I felt quite early on that something was very wrong, as the effeminate young man gaily snipping away at my hair hadn't even bothered to part it down the middle, or even ask how I wear it! It just kept getting shorter and shorter as he tried to correct his mistakes. When I asked to see a manager I was told none was available. None of the other staff came to his rescue. They basically butchered my hair! Their station 1 branch is most unprofessional excuse for a salon I have ever been to.
Avoid this place at all costs!
