The Union Station Barber

The Union Station Barber

I am always on the run, in between events and meetings left and right. So whenever i need to glam up for an important event or party, traffic and distance won’t allow me to go home to dress up and  refresh. Salons have become my best friends and one of them is custom-hair expert, millenial-oriented, Old New York barbershop style, The Union Station Barbershop.

At first, I was hesitant with the modern instagrammable interiors (and dapper Instagram and photos!) that’s more masculine but the shop has services for women. My good friend Cai, who’s Operations Manager of this place, allowed me to try out their services.

Started in September 16, 2014, The Union Station Barber Shop For Men and Women has provided customers throughout Makati City and the borough with affordable , stylist haircuts both for Men and Women.

The shop has more services and products for men and grooms-to-be. One day, i was surprised that my one of former batchmates  were there (among the other 3 I heard going there regularly), being groomed by their expert barbers. There are also cult products for men’s styling and hair care. It’s also the Barbershop in the country that also offers technically singeing which is the removal of excess hair around the ear by tapping a small lighted wand against it.

I tried their services a couple of times (see different selfies below). Because it’s very accessible to my events, I usually drop by The Link (in front of Anson’s in Glorietta area) to have my nails and hair done. I love their blow-dry services. Truly, the stylists (and barbers as well) are well-trained in their styles and methods.

Below is one of my favorite work by Bryan cruz, a celebrity and expert stylist at The Union.

I also like that the shop has cult brands that I like: like the original, Happy Socks!!

A side from the services, The Union Station also offers complimentary drinks like no other like the “Blend of The Union”, a 100% pure Arabica from the Sumatra region and “TEA by Tipple and Slaw” brewed gourmet tea leaves fused with exquisite elements for truly unique iced tea flavor. I really like hanging out in this place too while having my nails and hair done ( they do both very clean and professionally)

Overall, I would rate this salon/shop a 4.5/5. Definitely going back to prepare for events. FYI: this is not a sponsored post. I only get discounts normally as others during certain periods. =)

Visit their salon to try their other services and let me know how it went?

    Truly IG worthy. Can’t see the prices that much though but it’s really worth a try. 🙂

    At least they accomodate women as well. I like the idea of getting a haircut together with the significant other. Bonding experience? Hehe.
