When I used to work in Bonifacio Global City (BGC)—actually even now that I don’t—people always ask me what’s a good salon in the area. I never knew what to answer—until now. Now, I can tell my friends and anyone who’d ask me where they can get a good hair cut, color, treatment, and pretty much all their hair styling and pampering needs that they can go to Creations Lourd Ramos Salon at Bonifacio Stopover near Jollibee Rizal Drive. The best part? The services are reasonably priced, for something located in Fort.

I never even knew there was a commercial establishment there that houses not just the salon but several restaurants and even shops until Lourd and a friend invited me to visit the salon. When I arrived, he took one look at my roots and subtly recommended that I get my hair color retouched, haha! So I decided to get my hair color darkened (it’s hard to maintain light hair color), then get it trimmed (just to remove the dry ends).
Reception of Creations in Bonifacio Stopover
I had a wedding to attend that weekend, so I decided I might as well get my nails done there. I’m sure a lot of my friends would be glad to know Creations is definitely your one-stop beauty shop in BGC—a lot of them also ask where’s a good place to get their nails done in Fort, so yes, you can get a good mani-pedi in Creations, too.
Creations’ Michael Pulanco was the one who cut my hair in a way that allowed me to somehow keep its length while removing the dry ends and giving my hair more volume with sexy layers. He also guided me through what hair color to choose. I told him I want to grow out my reddish light brown locks, so he helped me select the dark brown shade that matched my brown roots. It would eventually lighten, he said, so it’s best to go with a shade darker so everything evens out.
With Michael Pulanco who styled my hair
He’s really nice and ma-chika, but was sensitive enough to leave me be when I felt like just closing my eyes and resting while I get my hair primped. Relaxing in the salon is pretty easy, thanks to its spacious, modern chic layout and interior design.
Love my newly colored and styled hair!
Full head color for long hair like mine is at P2,500 and P2,000 for short hair. I was thinking of just having my color retouched, but then for a P500 difference (retouching is P2,000), I thought I might as well get a full head color.
Michael blow-dried my hair in loose, sexy waves, to bring out the layers.
Haircut is P350 for women, but if you want it done by their CD, that will set you back P950. To make sure my newly cut and colored locks remain healthy, strong, and moisturized, I also got a Nourishing Treatment (P900) that day, as per Michael’s recommendation. I also have to note the awesome head massage I got while my hair was being washed.

I found their manicure and pedicure services affordable at P250 each. It’s sulit because the service is spectacular and their selection of imported nail polish is impressive (try Cuccio!). Check out the nice pink shade I chose which lasted almost two weeks on my fingernails and almost a month (gasp) on my toenails because the manicurist did such a great job. (Make sure to give your nails a break after letting nail polish sit on them for THAT long, hehe.)
