The Louis Phillip Kee Experience

Hi there, dearest readers! It's a weekend as I type this and I am just so happy to be having my kind of weekend --- the kind where one do not wake up to hangovers, sip proper coffee in the morning, spend some hours cleaning the home and looking forward to an afternoon of wine pairing. How life had changed, yes? No more of the Saturdays spent recovering :D


What I really wanted to tell you today is my latest hair coloring experience. I used to think that hair coloring shouldn't really be something we think of too much. After all, it was just hair. Now that I'm in the personal care industry, WOW. It is HAIR. As I was entering a new phase of my life {the second one this year}, I had to do something very important to myself: Have my hair colored at one of the country's experts, Louis Phillip Kee. A friend and I had been talking some weeks ago with how we would be celebrating our birthdays by having our hair colored at LPK {he is the stylist to the stars after all} and guess what, the experience came way earlier. Such a serendipity!

Step into any of Louis Phillip Kee Premier’s posh salons and you’ll never want to leave. Attracting an A-list and celebrity clientele, the beautifully designed space will make you feel at home with its intimate and luxurious environment. Sink into soft, comfortable chairs, be treated to cold or hot drinks, request for a snack from a nearby cafe, or get some work done while enjoying free WiFi. But most of all come for the masterful work of hair stylist Louis Phillip Kee, one of the city’s most celebrated hairstylists, and his creative team.

Green Tea and scones, sushi and macarons while having my hair colored? Yes, please!

Peter Hartley, who was my hairstylist for the day, took a look at my hair and decided that I needed a darker color. I was, at first, very sad I couldn't go blonder but he said I can't anymore, as my hair was getting thinner {strands} and any lighter could mean further damage. After what seemed like two hours of careful hair application, making sure color is even and a powerful hair treatment to revive my drying hair, I {would like to believe} I look like someone with healthy hair:

Australian citizen Peter Hartley brings a wealth of experience and expertise in all aspects of hairdressing, product development and education from working in various settings around the world. He is an experienced haircutter and colorist who began his hairdressing career in Hawaii in 1972. He moved to San Francisco in 1974 where he was trained by Vidal Sassoon Academy to become and Academy Instructor. He was quickly promoted to Art Team Member and in this capacity taught Sassoons Academy course in San Francisco to hairdressers from all over the world. He traveled throughout both North and South America conducting in-salon seminars, shows and Sassoon's Academy courses. 

Louis Phillip Kee’s approach to hair styling focuses on your best assets and considers your lifestyle and preferences. Hair color takes on another dimension with creative color distribution, giving you vibrant tresses whether in the most natural shades or beautifully applied highlights. Other services include hair and makeup, deluxe hair treatments, manicures and pedicures, indulgent foot spas, body scrubs, facials, eyelash extensions, waxing treatments, and more.

Overall: I did feel like a star at the newly opened Louis Phillip Kee salon at C5 Acropolis. Spacious and well designed interiors as well as hefty servings of hot beverages and small treats were a welcome addition to the entire experience. I love that their staff do not talk excessively as well and do not over-upsell. I was able to read a lot of my ebooks during the time, so hooray!
