the program started at 9:30 am but i came to gaisano at 10.a client caught me up when i was about to go .he insisted to have a haircut which i granted.after15 minutes of haircut(yes!i did it that fast) i hurriedly headed to gaisano via a motorcyle which i paid for 25 pesos.
i pay 150 pesos for ther registration.its for the certificate and for the meals.well,not bad…i noticed that only few attended the seminar unlike the previous years.many seats were vacant it was easy for me to sit down.i cant find my old friends in the area .where could theyve gone?so i make friends with my seatmates,introducing names and exchanging cellphone numbers.”saang parlor ka?(what parlor yuore into?)was the usual question…most of them were from koronadal city.there were from gensan too.
roy marquez,senior artistic director of mondes hair salon academie initiated the watch and learn seminar.its about hair rebonding,hair color and hair treatment using thier product.
it was easy for me to grasp what has been taught because i already know some of the procedures…
