Tag Archives: hair color


I never shared a blog post about my hair because I’m always having a hard time looking for the perfect salon and hairstylist who can achieve my dream hair but now it’s a match made in heaven! Weeks before I got the collaboration with Hairshaft, I’m already having a salon hunt because I wanted my hair to be dyed and an overall treatment just perfect for summer but I’m having second thoughts because I’m really sensitive when it comes to my hair. I just wanted to have a long and natural hair and eversince I was a kid, my mom won’t allow me to apply anything on my hair so I stick to long hair as always. She doesn’t even want to apply any heat on it so I don’t have any choice but to have it in natural way. While I was browsing photos at instagram during my lunch break at work, I saw few artists who had their hair color at hairshaft and I immediately pointed out that I want my hair treatment be done at this salon and right after Fred and I talked on social media and got the collaboration.

These are some of the few awards of Hairshaft Salon:

First week of May 2016, my blogger bestie Mavie and I went to Hairshaft Podium for our appointment with Mr. Fred Penales. We were entertained with a welcome massage and drinks right away while waiting for Mr. Fred.


I’m so obsessed to new hair trends and so I wanted my hair achieve the Balayage effect and Hairshaft stylists and creative directors did their magic amazingly! They gave justice to my hair.

This was my hair before the treatment, very plain, no volume, no style at all. In short, boring.

The session started with washing my hair with my hairstylists Jen and Rey.

And time for bleaching. Actually on this part I’m already praying because I’m already nervous what will my hair gonna look like but take a look what will happen next and you’ll start loving it.

And now coloring starts now using the foil. All we know that hair treatment is time consuming but with Hairshaft, it’s a teamwork. Atleast 8 hands are working on my hair so that every details of my peg will be achieved and Mr. Fred didn’t fail us. They wanted each of their clients would be walking out of their salon happy. I had Hairstylists Jen and Rey, creative directors Miguel and Fred on that day. After the coloring, brazilian blowout was next with a massage while waiting to penetrate the medicine for brazilian blowout. IMG_3679

To finish my overall makeover, I asked Mr. Fred’s opinion if I should go with side bangs and tadaaaa! I really love every single strand of my hair. The color, treatment and style were insane! Totally rockin’ my new look and thanks to Hairshaft Salon!

               Last week at Century City Mall, L’Oréal Paris, The World’s # 1 Beauty Brand*, celebrated a milestone as it unveiled its first set of Filipina brand ambassadors namely Solenn Heussaff for makeup, Chesca Garcia-Kramer for hair color, and Dawn Zulueta-Lagdameo  for the skin care lines. The event was a gathering of Filipinas of worth, exemplifying the style, sophistication, and effortless beauty of the L’Oréal Paris woman.

               “L’Oréal Paris is a trusted and well-loved brand globally not only because of its superior quality products and innovative solutions but also because of the woman it represents,” shared by Barbara Ramos, Marketing Director of L’Oréal Paris Philippines. “We believe that a L’Oréal woman is a woman of authentic character, admirable intelligence, inspiring confidence, refined sophistication and stylish beauty – overall, a woman of worth. She understands her value, educates and inspires others to feel beautiful, all because she knows that she is worth it. And that is exactly what our three ambassadors represent, for us, in the Philippines – they are the Filipinas who do not only take confidence in their natural beauty but know their worth in their respective callings defined by their life roles, passions and pursuits.”


               For the makeup category, L’Oréal Makeup Designer/Paris, has signed Solenn Heussaff, a half-Filipina, half-French as their first-ever makeup designer from the Philippines, pushing forward the brand’s mission to enable women to design their own beauty, as inspired by the art of makeup from Paris.

                Solenn embodies a unique mix of sophistication, confidence, and effortless beauty that makes her the perfect fit for L’Oréal Makeup Designer/Paris. As a multi-faceted slasher – an actress / host / singer / model / painter / fashion designer / makeup artist – she is known to conquer the challenges of her busy career with an easygoing and effortless style, the true mark of a L’Oréal Paris woman.


              A wife, a mom, a TV host, a celebrity and commercial model, and a businesswoman Chesca Garcia-Kramer, a woman who advocates the value of beauty and self-care was chosen as the newest brand ambassador of L’Oréal Paris for its hair color brand as indeed she is a truly a woman of worth.


                Chesca is the perfect woman for the brand because she sets an example for us women that despite our very busy schedules and the many roles we play in life, beauty should not be placed last. As Chesca says, hair color is really important because it really does set a certain mood to a woman that beauty shouldn’t come last.


               Dawn, the very first Filipina to represent L’Oréal Skin Expert/Paris, joins the leagues of the world’s most beautiful and elegant women who represent the world’s undisputed number one anti-aging brand throughout the years: from Andie McDowell, Eva Longoria, Naomi Watts to Julianne Moore, and other global icons that represent the L’Oréal woman.


                She carries with her the message of intelligently choosing skincare products, and for her, trust is key. Dawn has been using L’Oreal anti-aging products for around 10 years now. L’Oréal Paris, work hand-in-hand with her to educate more and more Filipinas on the importance of taking control of how they will age, and about making intelligent choices on the skin care products they use.


               Ooppss! The event wasn’t just for the newest brand ambassadors but we also got the chance to try and have their products and be a woman of worth. Yes I got makeup, hair color recommended by the L’Oreal team and hair treatment courtesy of Bloheartsasia (follow them on instagram @bloheartsasia) and what I enjoyed the most was the hair flip moment with L’Oreal.
