BEAUTY SCENE SALON: History and Milestone

Our name is synonymous with “professional service at friendly rates”. Established on September 8, 2000 at the Parc Chateau Condominium in Ortigas Center, the salon catered to housewives and businessmen within the periphery of the Ortigas-Pasig District. 

A month after its successful opening, the salon owner was invited to set-up and become a business partner of the Norain Salon in Brunei, Darussalam. A trusted and efficient staff of the Beauty Scene Salon was sent to Norain Salon to do the training on skin/ body care/spa services and co-manage the business as well. When Norain opened its doors to the public on November, a lot of notables- some members of the Royal Family and from the consulates, graced the occasion. The Beauty Scene Salon owner, was interviewed by the Borneo Times and was asked what is unique with the Norain Salon, she quickly replied “royal service at friendly rates”. 

After three years, and by word of mouth from delighted clients, the business expanded and found its new home at the Pearl Plaza Building in Pearl Drive (right across the University of Asia and the Pacific) at Ortigas Center. Situated in the heart of business and commerce, the salon attracted more clientele to include entrepreneurs, celebrities and students as well. A beauty queen turned actress (Bb. Pilipinas-International) who is a former Hotel and Restaurant Management student of the salon owner, Ms. Jhezarie Javier together with award winning actor of the 35th Brussels International Film Festival, Mr. Yul Servo, cut the ceremonial ribbon. 
Instead of 7107487 the number has been changed to 7886992.

On February 2005, Macro Asia Catering Services, commissioned the Beauty Scene Salon to offer relaxing massage services to the Sampaguita Lounge (1,500 square meters haven) guests located at the West Wing of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 1, Paranaque City. 

Beauty Scene Salon enjoyed media attention when some of its professional services like underarm whitening, aromatherapy mint facial, and complete hair waxing were featured in popular TV talk shows like “F”, Sis, Mel & Joey among others. 

As part of its community service, Beauty Scene Salon also partners with local government units in Metro-Manila to provide livelihood lectures on aromatherapy facials and relaxing massages. 

The Salon is a member of the Asean Federation of Beauty Therapists, an organization committed to professionalize the beauty industry. The current president of the AFBT is the owner of the Beauty Scene Salon, who had 20 years solid experience in the health, fitness and beauty industry. She has managed the first figure-forming salon in the Philippines and the largest chain of skin/body care salons in the country. 

Every year and during the month of November, Beauty Scene sends representatives to the prestigious Cosmoprof Asia Event in Hongkong – the biggest beauty event in the world to be updated in the industry. The Salon, in the past have also organized skin/body care seminars for other international companies from Australia, Canada, France and Germany. Its unique contribution in the beauty industry is the offering of in-house seminars that tackles “Etiquette in the Beauty Industry” and “Professional Image for Beauty Therapists”.
