It's that piece of machinery that I'm holding that's my new toy. I was invited to an event at HBC in Greenhills. Shopping and beauty were my key words for me to say yes. Who wouldn't want to be surrounded with products too? Actually, I've been an HBC customer for 4 years since I came home from the States and they opened a branch near my place. I finally have a place where I could get beauty supplies at a cheaper price.
Anyway, at the event, we were given Php1,500 worth of GCs which we had to consume for that day. Here's the thing.... I couldn't decide which to buy. I thought first of buying and hoarding false eyelashes and then hoarding cotton, tissue, and miscellaneous items for Mantra studio. After deciding and opening and returning and re-editing choices... I thought I'd just get one item which I know I really need and would be very useful and one thing I still don't have...
I've never fired a gun in my entire life but this one is definitely bigger than your average gun. I finally got myself a professional-style blow-dryer, which is one thing that I've been really needing. Although I have a my trusty foldable blow-dryer, which I could use for travel shoots, I still need this biga$$ one for better blowouts plus it's time I practice blow-drying hair to perfection.
I also like how comfortable the handle is (it's kinda rubberized too) and how easy I could maneuver this device, although on my own, it still would be hard especially at the back part. I've worked with a full-size blow dryer before and I still have a hard time, but there really is a difference with the results. I'm really happy with this buy, and I just had to shell out Php 300 more but it's okay. I think good equipment are really worth the investment, and just in case it does conk out, HBC also has a repairing service too, and with a branch just a hop and a leap away from where I live, it's pretty easy. Cost of this blow-dryer is Php 1,800, and it's cheaper than other dryers that perform the same quality.
