If you run a beauty salon or spa, then you definitely need to have plenty of supplies. You’ll need products for the hair, nails, skin and even make-up! While most high-end salons here in the Philippines make use of imported and expensive products, one cannot deny the quality and effectiveness of this local brand that been tried and tested by many hairstylists, beauticians and salon owners. I’m talking about Home of Beauty Exclusives or HBC.
Most people still call it by its original brand name, Hortaleza (named after its founder, Dr. Rolando Hortaleza). Over the years, Hortaleza has gone through changes and rebranding, and is now known as HBC.
HBC carries several brands and hundreds of products under their name. These include the following:
