Meet Samaya and her favorite beautician, Teresita – to whom she entrust her trims, cuts, and even color. Teresita: Anong kuwento ang gusto mo? Maraming intriga rito sa parlor, maraming cheche bureche. Eleven years na akong parlorista dito sa Quiapo, all around. Christian ako, mga Muslim ang kadalasang customer ko. Samaya: Paborito kong beautician si Teresita, expert na siya eh. Magaan ang kamay niya. Kapag kailangang magpakulay at magpagupit ng buhok, kay Teresita ako nagpupunta. Teresita: Madalas shaggy ang iginugupit ko sa kanya, bagay sa kanya, mas maganda siya kapag ganun ang buhok.
