BE BEAUTIFUL FOR HIM

A post shared by santos (@chotda) on

Be Beautiful For Him (“Him” refers to God) is one of Makati’s best-kept secrets. It’s been around since the ‘60s and is a stone’s throw away from the Bel-Air and Rockwell neighborhoods. The women of BBFH are ever reliable and speedy workers who specialize in multi-tasking. Another treat that clients come back for are the salon’s polvoron, pastillas, and chicharon (often referred to as the best in Manila). Frequent visitors are society's cream of the crop.
