TACLOBAN CITY– Homegrown Dettie Panis Salon and Spa opened its new branch on February 26 in front of Robinsons Place, offering youthful skin care as the new service.
Salon owner Demeter “Dettie” Panis said along with the new branch is the youth plus skin and laser center under the watch of her daughter Yohanne Kae S. Panis, a diplomate of Philippine Dermatological Society.
“We believe that beauty is a need. There’s no such thing as recession in beauty and I’ve proven than even in the aftermath of supertyphoon (Yolanda). A lot of people have been coming to our salon when we opened our Burgos branch 10 days after the disaster,” Panis said.
Among the guests were couple Engr. Eman Casal and Dr. Elvira Casal,former Ormoc City mayor Eric Codilla and wife, Julida; Rotary Club of Tacloban District governor Peter Rodriguez and Rotary Club of Kandaya president Caroline Lee.
The newest branch is specifically located at the ground floor of JGC Building in Marasbaras, fronting Robinsons Place.
The salon has been known for investing human resources by sending staffs to trainings in Manila and abroad. Before Yolanda, there were six Dettie Panis Salon and Spa branches in Tacloban and in Ormoc City. More than three months after the typhoon struck, five branches are now operational.
Two of salon’s smaller branches were heavily damaged by storm surges and subsequent looting incidents.
