My First Home Service Haircut and Color

You know it's time for a haircut when your hair...

Starts reminding you of...

To be honest, I did love the Cousin Itt-like length of my tresses, but there were two problems: 1) It had become dual-tone because I hadn't had it retouched in months--it was so bad that, when I'd have my hair up in a ponytail, the hair against my head would be black and the hair on the tail would be light brown; and 2) it was just getting too heavy for my head! I would find myself getting dizzy late in the afternoon after having had to support Rapunzel's crowning glory for hours.

As luck would have it, Revlon sent over their latest hair color. The bad news was I had never colored my hair by myself before. So I thought this was the perfect time to give Michael Morano a call.

Michael is perhaps the only home service hairstylist that I know of. He normally does haircuts and has his sister do the coloring, but since I had my own color, he came over by himself.

With Michael. That black cape is not a good look on me.

Michael is a Shuji Kida-trained hairstylist. He's got LOADS of customers (including some high-profile ones), and entire families ask him to come over regularly to cut all their hair. I think this customer loyalty is a clear indication of just how good he is!

It was a treat having my hair done at home. I felt so special, (and kind of sosyal, haha!) being the only customer! And, since I provided my own color, the whole thing cost me--wait for it--just P1,000 (about $24)! That's one grand for cut, color, and blowdry! (Expect to pay more if the colorist brings her own hair color.)

And now, a before and after. Try not to let my just-woke-up, zero-makeup before pic frighten you too much...

Un-Tangled: I do miss the dyosa-like length, but it feels so much lighter now! And I have bangs again!

Want to get your hair cut and colored at home too? Contact Michael at 0939-8887860.


  1. I kind of like the before and the after, definitely not Itt-like!

  2. The Itt resemblance was uncanny. I should've put sunglasses on!


Oh, so sweet of you to drop a line!:)
