The Union Station Barber Shop for Men and Women: Experience the Art of Singeing and Other Impeccable Services

Wazzup Pilipinas!

There's a new barber shop in town, right at the center of Makati's busy commercial district,that is bound to become the destination of both men and women who wants to have a day of pampering. Yes! You read it right. It's a barber shop for both sexes - and even those in between.

The barber shop takes pride in letting everyone know that they provide modern and professionalized service to all sexes and assures that everyone will be satisfied with the quality of their work.

I got to try them out personally during the grand opening of The Union Station Barber Shop which is located at the 2nd Floor of The Link just opposite the Landmark mall and right beside the Shangri-La hotel of Makati.

I was expecting just a haircut but my barber even offered an experience to be singed! Read again - the old-fashioned art of singeing involves the use of fire to burn the small itsy-bitsy fine hairs around your ears. They have a piece of stick, wrapped the ends with some cottons, pour some flammable liquid, and then let it burn! My barber then playfully whisked it near my ears just fast enough only to burn the tiny hairs around it.
You'll enjoy the sensation of warmth from the flame as the barber "combed" his fiery instrument smartly around my ears. Those fine tiny hairs were removed, leaving sleek and tidy ears. This makes you realize how many of the old ways are lost through the generations, and how The Union Station Barber Shop has brought it back to the modern world of barber shops.

The Union Station Barber Shop wants you to experience something new, to bring out, not the new, but the real and enhanced you.What is great about them is they try to get rid off the people's minds that a barber shop is only for men. 

It is backed up by a notable personality by the name of Lourd Ramos, celebrated make-up and hair stylist, Creative Director of Creations, Tresemme Brand Ambassador, Asia's Next Top Model S2 Judge, Davines Brand Ambassador, President of the Philippine International Cosmetologists Association (PICA), among many other significant designations and recognitions leads the ownership of The Union Station Barber Shop.Also part owners of this authentic New York hair styling and a barber shop that caters to both men and women are Jason Magbanua a respected videographer and Oly Ruiz a top-notch photographer. I think they designed the barber shop after the one at Utica, New York.

The barber shop also calls their staff with unique designations unlike other barber shops or salons as if raising the standards to a higher level matched with superior creativity.

Your friendly neighborhood pambansang blogger was invited to attend the grand launch and witnessed an elaborate presentation via modelling exhibitions. Done tastefully and with an elegant touch, models paraded on the red carpet showing off their fabulous looks obviously done by the staff of the barber shop.

To our surprise, even the staff participated in the performance as if they were hired models in the mini fashion show. You'll enjoy how they made the show look so impeccably appealing and sexy.

Oly Ruiz was also present at the grand launch and was excited to share to us this new establishment where men can actually bring along their wives while having their haircut. The women could also avail of the services offered while waiting for their husband.

He also shared that there would be other services to be offered to help in passing time like tablets with wi-fi Intenet connections for those who prefer to keep in touch or connected online checking their emails or social media accounts.

Everyone has their own barber, but if you're looking for a new one or if you're in Makati on business or leisure and in need of a trim, swing by this place to experience great service. 

Though some will argue that they just created a salon and called it a barber shop, you'll definitely notice and realize the difference since both the ambiance, the outfits, and the skills of the staff are more inclined to the more masculine touch.

Thanks to fellow blogger Jade Martin (who happens to be also the founder of Profilers of the Unknown) for this photo of me being singed by my barber. It's my first time to experience this so it was quite exhilarating to find out how it would end. Sorry but no burnt ears for "sisig" since my barber was quite an expert in the art of singeing.

The other bloggers had their hair straightened and even got complimentary massages or eyebrow trims. I am coming back to The Union Station Barber Shop to get my hair colored.

I also asked Jade to take a video of me while I was being singed so expect me to add that here once I have uploaded it already on YouTube.

Special thanks to my barber who quickly decided on my new hairdo, and let me experience the art of singeing. I am glad I was not harmed by the flames ...hehehe. But I was not worried, he seemed so confident enough to try it out on me.
