Professional hairstylist Jay Wee created gorgeous hairstyles for three girls at All Things Hair Live x Jay Wee last September 27. These girls won the free makeover by subscribing to All Things Hair Philippines, posting their dream hairstyle on Instagram, and explaining why they wanted Jay Wee to style their hair.
Jay Wee shares styling tips and tricks
Jay Wee gave one of the girls beach waves to add texture and volume to her shoulder-length hair. Then, he created a trendy Korean-inspired hairstyle for the second winner. He ironed her bob inwards and styled her see-through bangs to go with the Korean look. The third winner has long, straight hair, so Jay Wee made big waves to spice up her ‘do.
To help him decide on a hairstyle for the winners, Jay Wee considered their face shapes first. He then asked about their personal style and taste, like how they usually wear their hair. Lastly, Jay Wee considered their hair types in picking a style that is suitable.
After giving free hair makeovers, Jay Wee gave free advice to customers who bought hair products at the All Things Hair Live Booth. He advised one girl with long, colored hair to always keep her locks moisturized by daily conditioning and weekly hair mask treatments. He also showed how to make hair wavy using a flat iron.
Jay Wee picks his favorite hair trend
Among the hair trends that are in today, Jay Wee loves super long hair. “Starting last year, bumabalik na ulit ang long hair. There was a time na the long bob was on trend. Everyone was cutting their hair. Ngayon, the super long hair is coming back. It’s super feminine and at the same time, it’s sexy. You can do a lot of things with long hair,” he says.
Got long, beautiful hair? Here are different hairstyles you can try:
1. High ponytail
The high ponytail spells strong, sexy, and confident. Put your long hair in a sleek high ponytail to help boost your confidence at work. You’ll surely nail that presentation the moment you walk into the boardroom with your impeccable ‘do, suit and slacks, and sky-high heels.
Editor’s tip: Get rid of frizz by applying a drop of TONI&GUY High Shine Serum Drops on your hair when you put it into a high ponytail.
2. Ballerina bun
Want to keep hair off your face when doing yoga? A ballerina bun is the answer. You can also wear this ‘do on super hot and humid days to make you look fresh and neat. When you want an easy but elegant updo for a special occasion or party, wear the ballerina bun as well.
Editor’s tip: Spritz TRESemme Freeze Hold Hairspray to help your ballerina bun stay up and last long.
You can try the chic and classic French braid, or its equally stylish cousin: the Dutch braid. Both types of braids are easy to do and won’t take long to finish. You can sport the French or the Dutch braid when working out at the gym or when going on a tour around the city on a weekend.
Jay Wee’s favorite hairstyling products
“It helps in maintaining a well-conditioned and well-moisturized hair. For the longest time, I’ve been a fan of Dove. Most of their formulation, it’s not so strong. Hindi siya matapang sa hair. That’s what I like about it.”
“It helps the hairstyles, especially beach waves, stay longer. So if you do a lot of things in a day, it helps keep the hairstyle. ”
“Their hairsprays are topnotch. For someone who has done a lot of beauty and fashion editorials sa magazines, that’s one of my favorite products to use. Their strong-hold hairsprays help the hairstyles last for a long time.”
All these products are available at the All Things Hair Live Booth at SM Mall of Asia Department Store. Don’t forget to subscribe to All Things Hair Philippines so you get the latest tips, trends, and updates.
