After a year of wearing bangs, it’s time for a hair update. And where else will I go but to Studio Fix by Alex Carbonell, and to get a cut from Mr. Alex Carbonell himself. As you’ve read here, I went to Alex about a year ago to get bangs. Now it’s time for a revisit.

Ellie instantly recognized me from my first blog post on Studio Fix, which I really felt happy about. It’s true, “Studio Fix by Alex Carbonell” is one of the top search terms on this blog! 🙂
Since it was the first time I had my hair highlighted in a salon, I thought I would be charged both for the highlights and hair color—so I was expecting to pay upwards of P5,000 plus Alex’s haircut fee of P1,200. So I was super pleasantly surprised to learn that my total charge was only P2,350, which is the fee for full color for medium length hair—and because Alex waived the haircut fee!
Another quick note on having hair color done professionally. I had this notion that having highlights and color done in salons is super expensive, especially for a salon of Studio Fix’s level. In fact, I first thought of just having my cut in Studio Fix then just having the color done in a Fix salon, which has cheaper prices for color services.
But after having my hair colored and highlighted in Studio Fix, I thought that I got really great value for money. For the amount I paid, I got exactly the great hair color I wanted in the shade that’s perfect and matched exactly for my skin tone, with each and every strand meticulously colored/highlighted, and had an amazing head massage to boot—and all at the expert hands of Alex Carbonell and his well-experienced colorists and assistants.
Oh, and to preserve the job on my newly-colored hair, I’m now using Pureology shampoo (P1095, available in Studio Fix, Fix Lab, and Fix salons). It has anti-fade ingredients but what interests me is that it has no sulfate (a chemical that’s harmful for the scalp and found in most commercial shampoos).
Lastly, I don’t know if I was given the free haircut because of my blog post but nonetheless, super thank you to Studio Fix! For my readers, I don’t have anything to disclose at this time—my only relationship to Studio Fix is that I’m a client and I gave good, raving reviews only because I was really, really satisfied with the level of service that I received. At the end of the day, I’m just happy to share with you how happy I am with my cut and with my hair color and I know I will be back for touch ups and other services.
Here’s a snap of Studio Fix’s services, which I took because I know so many are asking (please click to enlarge):
Stay Fabulous! Cheers!
