Jigz Barbershop & Beauty Salon is turning 10 years old this month. To celebrate the occasion, it will be reviving its rewards cards as well as other promotions.

According to Jigz Barbershop manager Janette “Gigg” R. Hernando, they will be giving away rewards cards to the first 250 customers that drop by the Oleai establishment.

Jigz Barbershop first issued rewards cards 10 years ago when it first started at the VS Sablan Building in Chalan Piao. Under the new promotion, customers earn one stamp for every haircut and could avail of a free haircut on their 11th visit.

Jigz Barbershop will also be giving away free refrigerator magnets to customers while supplies last.

Jigz Barbershop started operations on Oct. 5, 2009, due to the high demand for men’s and boy’s haircuts since there were only a few available barbers on Saipan at that time.

From just two expert barbers—Roger Papa and Alma Anastacio—Jigz Barbershop has grown to six, with Patrick Kapaw-an, Nestea Villegas, Lena Delos Santos, and Noelle Wong joining them the last couple of years.

“Today, we can proudly say that we can cater to both men and women. Before, Jigz Barbershop’s customers were around 90% men, but now, women, children, teenagers, and seniors have started to patronize us,” said Hernando.

With Jigz Barbershop evolving into a beauty parlor, its service has expanded to include not only basic men’s and women’s haircuts, but also make-up for all occasions, hair coloring, highlights, hair perming, hair rebonding, hair relaxing, hot oil treatments, and brow arching.

On top of the rewards card and anniversary refrigerator magnets, Hernando said Jigz Barbershop is also giving discounts on major services like hair-dye, straightening, perms, hot-oil treatments, and more.

Customers can get bigger discounts on a combination of services such as color/highlights, perm/hair-spa, hair-dye/hot-oil, rebond/Brazilian, etc., according to Hernando.

“This promo will not only be for the whole month of October, but would extend until the end of December,” she said. “Anyone can avail of this promo. Just check our beauticians or call for appointments. They can also suggest which and what kind of services you exactly need for your hair type.”

Jigz Barbershop is located on the first floor of the CDA Building in Oleai. It is open from 10am to 7pm Monday-Saturday and from 9am to 3pm on Sunday. For appointments and for more information, call 235-1929.
