:엘로시오: A Korean Hair & Nail Salon in Makati You’d Want To Try
Korean Invasion: Pamper time!
Have you ever wondered why Korea is popularly known for its beauty products? I had some serious girl time in a Korean salon in Makati and I quickly discovered why – they know their stuff!!!
Gionyx Hair & Nail Salon
It’s Bel-Air’s secret gem, a hole-in-a-wall kind of place and I’m so happy for discovering it! The brand name “Gionyx” was created by combing the word “Onyx” which means nails while adding the “Gi” from Girl. So it’s really a must-try location for hair and nail enthusiasts! Let me show you why ;)
Gionyx Nail pampering area
One thing’s for sure, Gionyx makes sure you will be pampered with Korea’s finest products. They’re the ONLY salon in Metro Manila who carries authentic Gionyx products (a wide range, I must add) ordered fresh from Korea! Gionyx is like Korea’s OPI if you know what I mean ;)
You’ll love the intimate feel in this salon, as if they’re focused on you – and only you. The staff is very welcoming and Gionyx has private rooms incase you want some serious R&R.
Clean and spacious environment
No counters in this salon! It’s very spacious and clean. I love it’s unique architecture from the wooden panels to the white stone walls.
L’Oreal Haircolor (includes haircut + blow dry)
I badly needed a haircolor and I’ve always wondered, “Why don’t I just go to the Php300 hair color deals?” Today, I learned why. The brand of the hair color is SO important cos you don’t want harmful chemicals sitting on your scalp. A cheap hair color trip will save you some cash but in the long run, you might end up spending more when you notice those strands falling off or the color not turning out as you planned. Gionyx uses L’Oreal hair color sourced straight from Korea!
I also managed to make some friends in this visit. Gionyx salon is the go-to place of Korean nationals in the city. Hi Violet! Thank you for taking my photos :)
Ready for my Hair Treatment!
Once the hair color is applied, you need to LOCK IT IN! I’ve tried a lot of deep conditioning treatments (around 15 minutes plus massage) but Gionyx does it uniquely. Let me show you how!
Intensive deep conditioning treatment | L’Oreal
I’m amazed with the hot-to-cold technique the stylist used to really lock in the color and moisture of the treatment. They even wrapped it in a frozen towel after heat protecting my hair. Now is actually the perfect time to try it out because their hair treatment is on 70% OFF! Originally around Php3000, you can get your hair repair for only Php499! :)

Time for a haircut!
My hair felt SUPER clean after the treatment. Time for a fresh trim! The haircut is already included in the hair color service – such a treat! Gionyx haircut services range from Php350 to Php750, depending if you have it done by the senior designer or creative designer. See how shiny my hair looks? Til now (as I write this post), it still is! :)

Homeless Cat | BEFORE
So now you see the transition of my hair from homeless cat to style cat. Hahaha! My hair feels lighter, shinier and healthier – thanks to Gionyx. You gotta see how the hair color looks under the sun! :)

I highly recommend this place – even just try out the deep conditioning treatment! ;) Gionyx Hair & Nail Salon is located in Unit 202 ASSI Building #109 Neptune Street, Makati. They’re located right in front of Century City Mall, above the Korean supermarket – you won’t miss it. For more information, like Gionyx Hair & Nail Salon on Facebook!
