ALCUTRAZ Hair Studio Grand Opening Night with Tanya Garcia

Just a little trivia: I enhanced my web designing skills (through mano-manong HTML coding via notepad) way back in high school. I ended experimenting and getting traffic by making fansites for celebrities such as Geri Halliwell, Victoria Beckham, Ellie Campbell (does the name ring a bell?), Cogie Domingo, Jade Lopez and many, many more.


The first local celebrity who noticed my efforts is Tanya Garcia, who was then playing the role of Cecilia in the teleserye Sana Ay Ikaw Na Nga opposite Dingdong Dantes. At first, her cousin e-mailed me then her mom followed. Later on her elder sister Denise was texting me until I received a call from Tanya herself during my 16th birthday. Our communication never really stopped since then πŸ˜›

I know that Ate Tankee wants to have her own hair salon business and we even talked about it last year. I smiled when I received a text from her inviting me to her first salon venture here in Manila. She is now the proud owner of ALCUTRAZ Hair Studio located at Metrowalk, Ortigas.

Now, Tankee (Tanya’s nickname) is ‘semi-retired’ from her showbiz life. She is now happy and contented as a loving wife to Mark Lapid (whom i recently found out really won as Governor last election) and a mother to Mischa.

I went to the grand launch even if I was a bit tired from our Anvaya Cove trip. Worth it though as I don’t really want to miss this launch!


Yes, a new baby is coming months from now!

When I arrived at the venue, I saw Tanya being interviewed by the press people. I found out that she is three months pregnant with her second child!

I had the chance to meet some of Tanya’s loyal friends and finally, I met her sister Denise! I think she’s surprised to learn that the high school internet addict whom she sent some gifts through mail in Dagupan City is now a working girl in Manila LOL πŸ˜› She is the only one whose single among the siblings, but is undeniably pretty and sexy! πŸ˜€

Here are some of the pictures I took during the ALCUTRAZ Hair Studio Grand Opening Show:

More details about Alcutraz Hair Studio

With the tagline “BAD HAIR is a CRIME“, I would appreciate it if Tankee can do something with my major hair problem one of these days πŸ˜›

As early as now, I would like to congratulate Tankee and the rest of the Alcutraz team for a job well done! I would love to see the hair salon grow and expand in the years to come!

… and i am looking forward to the new baby boy/girl too! πŸ˜€

Alcutraz Hair Salon is located at the 2nd Floor of Metrowalk, Ortigas. Will post the contact details soon πŸ™‚
