I love Le Papillion

Postby canadianpursegirl » Thu, 30 Sep 2010 8:02 pm

I am not associated with the salon at all - I'm a teacher at an International School here, and please contact me if you dispute my motives.
Now, if you're like me and searching for:
1. Great, I mean nice creamy buttery blonde high lights
2. A stylish cut
3. Straight, frizz free hair

Then Le Papillion is for you. But, ladies - be realistic, yes the Brazilian Blowout will straighten your hair but it's not a miracle worker. I'm just happy that I can go out for a night without turning into cavewomen hair (no crazy frizz).

I've always been EXTREMELY happy whenever I've left the salon. Also, take note - he works alone and has a huge clientele that demand his time, if you book on a Saturday, he's going to have the place full. As, most salons in town will. If you want a more one on one experience go during the week. He always accommodates me.

You should all also be aware AND DEMAND to see what ingredients are in the Brazilian blowout offered at Le Papillon, did you know that the product they use contains anywhere between 8% and 10% of formaldehyde, which is known to cause certain types of cancer??

formaldehyde/keratin

Postby canadianpursegirl » Mon, 04 Oct 2010 11:28 am

I've asked Cedric and he's reasurred me that his product is Keratin. However, it is buyer beware and if it's an issue for you, check the bottle. Ask to see the package.

I've been doing the 'Brazilian' now, for 2 years. I have 'squirrly' hair. Neither curly nor straight, just sort of frizzy and not very nice. Yet, now it's lovely. After having the treatment done again, (4th time). My hair is wash and wear. But, my hair is short...when it was longer it did require a blow dry for super straightness.

Hope this helps anybody considering going to Le Papillion.

I wasnt aware that he works alone until I went there and no reason why as a consumer and after lightening your purse about 500$ you would expect a certain standard of Service - I am not saying it was a bad job just not a good enough job for me - Mine was all hurried and my hair cut not really commendable- afterall he spent about 5 minutes on that.

I did happen to mention that I was looking for highlights but that was before cedric decided to give me a haircut - and after 5 minutes of cutting my hair he said that he would even it out when i come for the highlights- now thats not fair is it - anyway I was there on a weekday :)

Anyway it could be perception based but as a customer I expected a little more

My horrible experience in Hair N** Studio!

Postby grace2011 » Thu, 13 Jan 2011 5:08 pm

Hi Babes!

I wish to share with you guys my recent bad experience in this studio, which is strongly not recommend go.

Few weeks ago, I bought a rebonding promotional voucher online. Since the salon offered a $68 service from the usual $170, I thought it was a good deal for me to try out even though this is my first time going.
When I got to the salon, Hair Nox Studio located at High Street Centre on a Saturaday, 8th Jan 2011, I felt that the studio look no different from any normal salon in terms of appearance and decorations. However, service has nothing to do with appearance so i brushed off my doubts.

When I entered the studio, there is only 1 guy, Kef Tan, handling 2 customers at the same time, and a middle aged lady who is known as the owner of the place. No one attended to me. Finally when the lady showed me the seats, she explained how her staffs refused to come to work. What management! Then she started complaining how much loss she made for putting up the promotion online. I was thinking if anyone want to complain then don’t do it in the first place! :shock:

After a while, the male hairdresser came to me. He washed my hair and after looking at the condition of my hair, he asked if I wanted to “trim the fizzy ends of my hair”

Hey grace. Feel so sorry for you about your bad experience.

Well, here's a tip for you. I always search online forums or their website to see the feebacks or reviews by the public. Make sure they're really good reviews. I always do that :)

I think you're really careful about salon visits alrready right? Haha. Anyway, it's their fault too. A trim means cutting a little. And usually it is for free since you're seeking their rebonding services if it's just a trim.

Hope your hair is fine!

Anyway, I go to a home-based salon at AMK. It's called Hair Affairs. Her charges are quite reasonable. $68 for all hair length which comes with free treatment.

She's very friendly too. :)

hello people. i've been a silent reader of this interesting thread and also a victim of frizzy damaged hair due to the countless rebonding i've done. i'm just wondering, beside Le Papillon, Visage and Next, is there any other salons providing this treatment? i've heard of trimmings and kimage too but not too sure if they are good.

thanks!

Got my hair frizz free again at the "Trimmings" at Loewen Garden last Thursday -I must say it was definitely worth the 350 $ I paid when compared to le papillion .The Service was great and Alvin was good at what he did - there was a little painful hair tugging by his assistant but I guess looking at how great my hair looks I could easily forget that .

Happy that they charged me what they quoted unlike so many other places who later add in tax , 30 $ for a wash and all that !

Wud definitely go back !
