How to create a Quiff

August 20, 2012 Leave a comment

FYI: This is just a random post… a break from all the entertainment stuff I’ve been posting lately.

So lately I’ve been trying to play around with my hair cause I get bored with my short hair.  I wanted to go to and get a hair cut yesterday but failed to book ahead so I ended up getting a really late schedule.  I decided to just go get lunch and some grocery shopping done and just go straight home with my younger sister.

When I got home I decided to check out what exactly do I wanna do with my hair.  Got really cool ideas but majority of the style is still into the short on the side and long on the top kinda deal.  So I decided I want to get it done but I still need to get a hair cut. Hahaha! (I’m definitely going to do that soon)

In the meantime I decided to see what I need to style my hair when I do get that hair cut and I stumbled on this video from youtube.

The only problem is I don’t have a sea salt spray and don’t know where the heck I can buy one.  So I decided to go online and see if I can make myself one.  I found so many instructions and just decided to stick with what’s available at home.  Basically all you need are probably already in your kitchen.

– 1 spray bottle (The bigger the better… I look into my old products and found a bottle that’s already empty)

– 1 tbsp of sea salt — they say that it’s different from the table salt in the kitchen but it’s not true… rock salt is sea salt specially here in the Philippines.  We get it from the sea!!! Hahaha!  It’s just a marketing ploy so don’t fall for it.  I used 1 tbs. for mine, the more salt you use, the more textured your hair will be.

– 1 tbsp  a light oil (I used olive oil but you can also try coconut oil)
– 1 tbsp of gel to add extra body
– 5 tiny drops of essential oil (I used lavender but you can use whatever you have… its entirely optional though)
Shake ingredients well before every single use.
Here’s what I want to achieve with this experiment… will try to post photos when I’m done 🙂

Ginoo at Binibining Malolos 2012

I had the opportunity (although I got there a little late coz my friend and I decided to hangout at Cabanas first for a few drinks) to cover the event last night.  It’s a common knowledge that winners of these local competitions move on to compete into regional, national, and even as far as representing the country in international pageants.  Who knows maybe we’ll see more of these young women and gentlemen in the near future.

Here are some of the highlights from the pageant

Anne Curtis and Francis Libiran for ANTM

April 22, 2012 28 comments

America’s Next Top Model has been doing really good things for Filipino designers and this time our very own Anne Curtis gets to share this chance and celebrity photographer Mark Nicdao.  Apparently Tyra Banks chose Francis to create gowns specifically for a shoot that will be featured on the show.  UPDATE:  According to sources the said episode will air on April 25 in the US via the CW channel and in the Philippines on April 30 via cable channel ETC. Anne Curtis on the other hand was hand-picked by the Pinoy designer as a model because according to him, Anne “represents a perfect Filipina.”

Anne, meanwhile is very glad that she got chosen by Francis because she really likes his designs and that most of her gowns when she was just starting in the business was made by Francis.

“I’d do anything for him. Back then when I was just starting in the industry, he made all the beautiful dresses that I wore in special events in my life,” said Anne.

Here are the designs Francis created for the segment.  What do you guys think?

Celebrity Filipino photographer, Mark Nicdao did the glamour shoot.  According to America’s Next Top Model producer, fellow Filipino Michael Carandang, this will be the first time that the works of a Pinoy photographer will be exhibited in ANTM.  Carandang is very happy for the talents of Filipino designers.  Before Francis, Filipino designers like Michael Cinco and Oliver Tolentino have penetrated ANTM after their creations were featured in a number of episodes of the show last year.

Tyra Banks was also one of the Best-Dressed during the annual Blossom Ball in New York wore a gown made by Libiran.

Let’s do this PINOYs! Kudos to everyone who took part in this very promising project.  Let’s show the world what the Philippines can offer. 🙂
