I'm not really the type of girl who pampers myself often with massages, scrubs, facials, hair spas, foot spas, manicures and pedicures, etc. It may not seem too obvious, but I'm really low maintenance. I go to the salon to get a haircut around once or twice a year. I've never done facials and body scrubs. And, I don't usually get my nails done outside because I can do it myself. Given the circumstances, you'd get an idea of how simple my life is so if you're gonna ask me what I think about my day in Ayumi, I'd describe it as HEAVENLY. I know it may sound a bit exaggerated but it did feel nice to spend half a day getting made up and being taken care of.
First, I got my lash extensions done! Initially, I wanted to try their Ange Curl Lash Extensions because this service will not only lift your real lashes but they will also put lash extensions afterwards to make your lashes look fuller. It sounds very promising, right? :) Too bad I couldn't avail that because I lost too many lashes after my last lash extension, from a different salon, that there aren't much lashes left to lift. LOL. SAD.
So, I got their 5D Lash Extensions instead.
How is it different from regular lash extensions? They attach 5 lash strands to each of your lashes. It adds so much volume to your lashes that you'd have doll-like eyes afterwards. I wasn't very comfortable at first because it looks "too much" but I started to appreciate it after 2 weeks because even though some of my lash extensions have fallen off, my lashes still looks full and filled. I love the quality of their extensions too! They're not heavy and they feel like your real ones because they use mink lashes from Japan! :)
P.S. My lash extensions survived snowboarding and the occasional strong winds in Japan.
Next, I got my nails done! There isn't much to say about this because it felt like a regular trip to the nail salon.
The only notable one about this experience is they use their own brand of ORGANIC nail polish. I asked how it's different from other polishes, they said their nail polish doesn't turn your nails yellow. Since my gel polish is still intact whilst writing this blog post, I still have to find out if it's true! Haha! As I've discussed with one my of friends, I think their gel polish service is cheaper compared to other nail salons. So if you're the type who prefers to apply gel nail polish, you might want to check them out. :)
They also offer nail arts! :)
Lastly, I got their teeth whitening service. One session lasts for about 20 minutes, but if you want to achieve brighter & whiter teeth, you might have to return for a few more sessions with them. :)
Aside from their services, there are 2 other reasons why'd I'd visit Ayumi again. One is their super cozy interior that adds to the overall relaxing experience. The second is their super friendly, bubbly and funny staff. I prepared a book and some work materials before going there, in case there's a need for me to kill time due to dull moments. But, I didn't get bored at all because I chatted and joked around with them the whole time. :)
I visited their branch in Quezon City, which is located at: Mezzanine, Victoria Towers, Timog Avenue corner Panay Avenue, Quezon City.
