Make-up Transformation

My eldest daughter, Chloe, recently had their school prom at Limketkai Luxe Hotel. Being a Grade 9 or Junior student, it was her first time to join. She just transferred in her new school this school year so everything was really new to her.

The theme of their prom was Vintage Hollywood. So, prior to their prom, I was busy looking for a nice dress for her to wear then looked for a make-up artist and hairstylist. It was a good thing I befriended some of the moms at my youngest daughter’s school, who made some recommendations of who and where to look.

I ended up booking an appointment with Ms. Yen Bastareche of Bellemoda. I almost didn’t get an appointment because I scheduled it the last minute. Thankfully, she accommodated us, and even let us come earlier on the said day because she was already vacant.

I was there watching how my daughter’s hair and makeup was made and I was so amazed with the transformation. I thought it was impossible to achieve the look, especially for the hair part coz my daughter’s hair was just like mine, thick and stubborn, hehe.

Anyway, see below some pics I took on Chloe. I would definitely go to Bellemoda again should there be another special occasion that we are going to attend.

*Be making another blog post about her dress after this 😉

Fish Tail Hair

I love braiding my children’s hair especially the youngest coz of her soft straight hair. I know how to braid my own hair when I was young and soon tried practicing my daughter’s hair. My eldest got her type of hair from me: very thick hair with thick strands and hard to manipulate. But if it’s long, then it’s good to braid. I even mastered doing the french braid.
But these days, fishtail is quite popular but I don’t know how to do it. Thanks to Youtube, I had my tutorial class in there. I find it too easy to do, even easier than the typical braid. So I fixed both of my daughter’s hair and so far, I was quite satisfied with their fish tails 🙂

My Red Hair :-)

I had my hair re-bonded and dyed it red early this year and I’ve realized that I like it this way so much. Currently, my hair is not like this anymore and I am looking forward for another time spent at the parlor and get a look like the one in the pic below. Having a hair rebond costs a lot of moolah especially for my long hair but there are actually parlors that offers promo rate. I was kind of lucky when I went to Carlo Reyes salon because at that time, they offered P2,000 promo for my hair. If I were to go to another salon, this would cost roughly 6-7,000 pesos and that’s without cellophane yet. Anyway, for my hair in this pic, I only added 700 for the cellophane so I still got a big discount. I might visit Carlo Reyes again and I hope they are still on sale or else I’ll look for someone who offers better rate…

Bad Hair Day

I had my hair trimmed yesterday and after I left the salon, I felt great. However, my hair didn’t look good after I took a bath this morning. When it was already dry, my hair became messy. Must be the work of the blower that gave my hair a bouncy look. I’m planning to have a hair rebond this weekend. I don’t mind how much it would cost coz I look so damn boring in my current hairstyle. Slash would only work for me if my hair is straight. When I have my hair rebonded, I promised not to have a haircut for a year to give me my money’s worth. I’ll just look for a parlor that will charge less for my long layered hair.

Debbie Gibson


80’s and 90’s hairstyle

Remember Debbie Gibson? She was very popular in the late 80’s. She was like the Britney Spears of her time except that Debbie’s way too talented. She knew how to play the piano, guitar, drums and she’s got a great vibrato!

She popularized the song Foolish Beat, Lost in Your Eyes, Electric Youth and many, many more. She was not seen in the limelight during the mid 90’s and I guess she was more focused on theater. I was one of her biggest fan at that time. I even had the same hairstyle as hers, you know, long hair with bangs and sometimes with a hat on 😉

How about you, have you heard about her? What songs you like best from her album? You’re welcome to share it here 😉

Christmas Hair

Pictures below were taken last November 19, 2010. My daughter’s school required them to dress up as Human Christmas Tree out of non-biodegradable materials. I thought that the school wanted us to come up something creative and not to spend on their costume. I had a hard time thinking on what to do with my daughter until I finally decided to have her hair looked like this:

From her braided hair, I placed the plastic caps and plastic balls as decorations.

I used a white plastic cloth-cover as my daughter’s costume. I put on some discs, plastic balls and few poinsettia flowers and made a star out of plastic straws. I was trying to be creative but when we arrived at their school, I found out that lots of parents went out of their way to make a beautiful costume for their kids. I think they spent a lot and I thought we did this to recycle old things. But some looked for a seamstress and I guess they were after for the prize. However, some didn’t looked like a Human Christmas tree anymore but a beautiful flower, others looked like they were going to dance salsa. But what we were only after for our daughter was compliance to the school’s requirement and enjoy the experience.

Smiling for the camera despite the discomfort

Inasmuch as I wanted my daughter to enjoy the experience, she hated it. She felt hot and was sweating while donning her costume. She was glad she wasn’t selected as finalist. She couldn’t wait to go home and bath again. I remembered she had fever that afternoon. Thank goodness they don’t have that kind of activity this year. I posted my these pictures in my other blog but I wanted to post it here again to show you what I did with her hair (“,)
