Celebrate National Hair Free Day at Hey Sugar Waxing Salon

Like most women, you’re probably already familiar with the concept of waxing. And like a lot of them, you probably also think that the process doesn’t sound very appealing.

Still, waxing is a standard part for a lot of women’s grooming routine; and they will book a session, show up for their appointment, go through the whole (seemingly) painful procedure, and emerge smooth and hair-free, without batting an eyelid.

Why do they go through it all? Because to be honest, waxing is not as excruciating as one might assume. It’s all a matter of choosing the right waxing salon to go to.

For starters, a reputable salon should be able to take you through the process without causing anxiety, regardless if you’ve been doing this for years or you’re new to the whole thing. They should be able to demonstrate why there’s no need to feel self-conscious and assure you that you’re in the hands of experts. The process is swift, and the aestheticians are trained to work in small, manageable sections and press on the skin as the wax is removed to help ease discomfort. After that, you’re ready to go.

It’s all quite simple and straightforward. And if you think you’re ready to take the plunge, then there’s no better time than April 3rd—when Hey Sugar!, the country’s premiere all-natural waxing destination, celebrates National Hair Free Day.

For the occasion, you can visit any Hey Sugar branch between 10:00 am – 1:00 pm and you can get free underarm waxing and eyebrow threading for free.

Living in the tropics can have its ups and downs. On one hand, year-round sun and fun; on the other, maintaining your body for year-round sunning and funning can be exhausting.

When you have the option to slip into your shorts and head to the beach or pool any time of the year, the goal is to maintain skin that’s smooth, no matter what season, which can certainly be sorted out by an appointment to your nearest waxing salon. But for Hey Sugar! Waxing Salon, it’s as much about giving clients what they need while making sure that they allow them to feel fabulous about themselves as well.

Hey Sugar makes all-natural and 100 % Sugar grooming options accessible to clients of all shapes and sizes. They use 100% naturally hypoallergenic sugar wax that minimizes side effects such as allergic reactions and chemical irritations caused by traditional wax—a gentler but no less effective way to keep your skin smooth and hair-free.

Hey Sugar!’s interiors are renowned for being warm, inviting and discreet. Clients can walk in and expect a clean and sterilized environment ideal for the sensitive beauty routines that they are about to undergo, while still feel like they are about to get pampered and taken care of.

And best of all, they can rest easy knowing they are in the hands of expert aestheticians who were trained to deliver only the best results. For newbies, this means you can easily ask your aesthetician any question about the process and advantages of sugar waxing and get a clear answer; for veterans, you know you will walk out of your appointment knowing there’s no other destination that can give you the same results using all-organic hair-removal methods.

We strive to bring reliable and fast services, but also connect with our customers—it’s a very personal grooming procedure, after all, and we are dedicated to making customers happy and comfortable. Clients expect quality service, superior treatments and affordable prices but not at the expense of a warm and comfortable environment—and that’s exactly what we have waiting for them here,” explains Arvin A. Amaro, Hey Sugar’s Marketing Head.

At the end of the day, everyone deserves some sugar…and there’s no better place to get it than by heading to Hey Sugar! SM Calamba.

Hey Sugar! Waxing Salon currently has 23 locations nationwide, including in UP Town Center, Festival Supermall, SM Bicutan, SM Sta. Rosa, SM Bacolod and our newest branch Hey Sugar Calamba.

Nailaholics Nail Salon and Spa : Your Ultimate Summer Pampering Destination

Summer is coming. Yay! That means hot weather, beach time, shorts, sandals, sundresses--and lots of it.  The question is, are you ready? 

Not to worry though, we’ve got you covered. Nailaholics, the city’s top urban nail and pampering destination in the country, has been everyone’s go-to destination for the season, so here’s a run-down of things-to-do to keep your skin, tips, and toes summer ready.

Prepare for sandal-season
Over the holidays, when the wind blew colder and your legs and feet were clad in tights and boots, it was easy to miss your regular waxing and pedicure appointments. But summer means trading in your warmer outfits for colorful shorts and summer skirts, paired with your favorite flip-flops or sandals. Book an appointment for a pedicure ASAP and jumpstart the season with a waxing session to get your stems ready.

Get ready for summer outfits
Legs are a major focus during summer that it’s easy to forget your arms need attention too. Because of the weather, you’ll be baring your arms and shoulders as soon as the wind blows a little warmer. Get them in perfect summer shape by booking a moisturizing treatment, followed by a manicure. Be sure to choose a bright hue on your nails to complement the season.

Make sure you’re super Summer-ready
Before you head off for your summer adventure, get yourself primed for the season by getting a head to toe buff and polish. Get Vitamin Sea: Manicure, Pedicure and Foot Spa to stimulate blood flow and leave skin glowing.  Be sure to moisturize post treatment by keeping a bottle of Argan oil handy.

Post-holiday Pampering Day
A visit to your favorite nail salon isn’t just for pre-holiday beach trips; sometimes, you need vacation from your vacation too. Summer means crowded airports, cramped flights, long road trips—and you’ll need to unwind after. Choose from our menu of spa treatments so that you not only get to relax, you also make sure you’re prepped and ready to go for your next vacation.

BEST Center: Bringing out the best in kids through sports

Getting your child into sports is vital to kids’ overall development. It does not only help them hone their athletic skills and build physical strength. More importantly, it also instils in them the value of self-discipline, camaraderie, teamwork, perseverance and above all, sportsmanship that leads them to become the best that they can be.

But aside from getting into sports, support from their parents, coaches as well as from school officials is equally important. With proper moral, emotional and financial support as well as time and guidance, kids become better athletes and individuals especially in dealing with both victory and defeat.

SBP National Champion Dela Salle Geenhills

Passerelle National Champion Adamson University

This is espoused at the recently concluded SBP-Passerelle, the longest-running twin tournament in the country. Organized by multi-awarded and pioneer of basketball clinics in the country, BEST (Basketball Efficiency and Scientific Training) Center, the twin tournament gives importance on the vital role of parents, coaches and school officials in shaping the kids to become better individuals.

BEST Center founder Nic Jorge with St. John's Institute Dennis Coo  

At BEST Center, we encourage parents to be role models to their kids by imposing good behavior and promoting fair play and sportsmanship,” shared BEST Center founder and former national coach, Nicanor Jorge.
These values will serve as good foundation for the kids to learn from.”

Alexandre Arabia with son Alejandro

Full support is vital especially if you want your kids to excel in their sport”, remarked proud father, Alexander Arabia who actively attends his son, Alejandro’s basketball clinic every weekend. “Simple acts such as driving them to practice, silently cheering them on at the sidelines and fetching them afterwards, parents can already get to know more about their kids and vice versa”

For Yuan Pasumbal of International School of Better Beginnings (ISBB), his parents are not the only ones who fully support his passion. All of his three siblings are also present in every competition. “We never miss any game, wherever, whenever they may be”, shared his parents, Fredrick and Reinates Pasumbal. 

Coaches also play an important role in child development. They are the kids’ role models
and are responsible for their performance on the court as well as on how they behave off court.

Training together are Jeffrey Juanengo 
And son Jeffrey John

Coaches serve as examples for the kids to follow”, quipped coach Ronie Gallo of Ferndale International School of Zamboanga City and whose son, Ronie Dale, is also one of the players of the team. 

“As both parent and coach, I never play favourites, emphasize the importance of fair play and teach them to accept the results of the game, whether win or lose.”
BEST Center’s Marilyn Jorge with De La Salle’s Bro. Felipe Belleza

“Sports complement education,” remarked Bro. Felipe Belleza of De La Salle. “While studying sharpens their academic skills, playing sports helps build character. They do not only develop talent but also learn life skills which they can use throughout their lives, regardless of whatever profession or path they choose to take.”

Indeed, sports are more than just platforms where the kids can play and win. It also equips them with wisdom and experience that can help them withstand the adversaries of the future and therefore brings out the best in kids.

The love month doesn’t just pertain to having a relationship with someone, it’s not just about going out on a date or stressing on what to give to your partner or dreaming about what to receive in return. 

The love month should remind us about everything and everyone we love.

Our parents, siblings or friends who stuck with you through thick or thin should form part of this special month. Loving yourself should not be set aside as well. 

Take time to take care of your own appearance and since our hair is on top of our body, it is pertinent that we start with it.

Here are a few tips in maintaining a healthy hair.

  • Observe good hygiene all the time – regularly wash your hair to remove dirt and grimes
  • Be extra careful whenever combing your wet hair – your hair is vulnerable to breakage during this period.
  • Use towel to dry off your hair after shower – Using hair dryer can cause damage to your hair; if you must use the heat then do so sparingly.
  • Eat the proper nutrition- Our hair is also dependent on what we eat. Iron-rich food and protein strengthens your hair.
  • Have enough sleep – Lack of sleep can cause hair loss. Sleeping allows our hair to repair and regenerate. Changes in our sleeping patterns have shown to affect our body’s immune and hormone function, as well as our physical and mental stamina. Our hair is very sensitive to these changes within the body.
  • Pamper your hair - Give your hair a proper massage with the nutrients it needs

Novuhair, nature’s answer to hair loss is made of 19 Natural ingredients which includes herbal components such as moringa oleifera, panax ginseng, virgin coconut oil and the natural essences of rosemary and peppermint.
