I love doing makeovers! It’s my favorite part of my job (okay, there are lots of things I ❤ about my job). But really, seeing women transform and try out different looks is so much fun. I did a lot of these back when I was the beauty editor of Cosmopolitan Philippines. I’ve even ambushed random women at the mall to ask them if they wanted a free Cosmo makeover! That was funny…and kinda awkward. And just so you know, these girls are super brave, because they had no control over what look I would give them. They’d just find out on the day of the shoot—just like in ANTM.
Here are some of the favorite makeovers I’ve done throughout the years:
Wondering if all my makeovers been hits? As far as I know, YES! But that’s because I’d spend days studying their photos, face shapes, and researching different looks that would suit them. I’ve had maybe two girls grumble a bit post-cut, but after about a week, they usually call me and say that they love their new look. Phew! Sometimes, you just really need a bit more time to adjust. There were also girls who eventually went back to their old ’dos, but that’s cool. What’s important is that they had the guts and confidence to change their look—and show it off to the entire country! For me, that’s super impressive.
To all the ladies out there who trusted me with their precious hair and allowed me to give them a makeover, thank you once again! I hope you had as much fun as I did. ♥
