I've never been to a barbershop since high school. Back to the time when teachers are still strict with haircuts. 😂 I don't know, I just used to going to salons when I want a trim or a quick hair color. But now barbershops are making a comeback and not just the conventional one. Upscale barbershop are sprouting in high end places like hotels and malls. The recently launched M Barbers at B Hotel Quezon City is one of them.
M Barbers is part of Jing Monis' salon empire that includes Hair Philosophie Salon by Jing Monis, Salon Privat by Jing Monis, Velvet by Jing Monis and Jing Monis Salon that are scattered around the Metro. This is his first barbershop and he aims to provide the same superior quality services exclusive for the gentlemen.
The first branch was launched last October 2016 along with the 4th Jing Monis Salon branch that is also located on the 3rd Floor of B Hotel in Quezon City.
Jing Monis has made it his mandate to never stop learning. A believer in constantly updating one’s skills and expertise, throughout his career, Jing has never stopped supplementing his work experience with further education, investing in training in the intricacies of hair cutting, coloring and perming techniques as well as in print, runway, bridal, air brush, stage makeup in the world’s best salons and schools, namely: Jacques Dessange in New York; L’Oreal Paris; The Powder Group Academy in New York; the Toni & Guy salons in Sydney, Australia and Singapore; and Le Salon Orient in Hongkong.
I was there during the launch two months ago and I came back last week to try their services. Upon entering the barbershop you will feel the old school vibe of the place with a modern twist and I like their dominant color --black. The chairs looks cool. They even have a shoe shine chair that I really found interesting. I forget to ask if they offer that kind of service.
A barber named Jun Lape was assigned to me. He asked what I want and I told him that I just want a trim and hi-lites to make my thin hair appear thick. I just had a hair color last month before I head to Hongkong so I don't want another color so my hair can rest a bit. Though my hair is really thin (blame it on the genes I guess, but I already accepted it 😂 ) it grows really fast. You can't really tell that I just had a hair cut last month.
What I liked about M Barbers is they have different people assigned for each tasked. The one who cut my hair is different from the one who applied the color or highlights. They are trained well and knows what they're doing and they have cool uniform too! After a quick trim, they did Partial Foil Highlighting on my hair, blow dry, styling and done. Over-all the service is done around one-hour and a half. I still have time for a quick meeting with my boss at a cafe in Kamuning.
I really liked the end result! 😍 My hair color looks high-end and it nice to experience what celebrities are having when they go to M Barbers or any Jing Monis' premium brand. The place is perfect for the gentlemen who wants the same superior quality service of salons without the noise and glitzy colors.
