I’m currently working on a few major hair stories for Cosmopolitan Philippines. As I was digging through my files for some beauty inspo, I found this!
My celeb crush Daniel Matsunaga on the cover of the J/Monis Hairzine. Maybe if he’s smoldering at me while I type, I can finish my article! Haha!
If you’ve been following my blog, then you probably know that I go to Jing Monis for all my hair concerns. He really understood how I wanted to experiment more with my ’do more modern and fitting for a girl who does beauty for a living.
The first time he chopped off my long locks! Oh my, that took a lot of trust! Read about my makeover here and here.
What I like about Jing is that even though he has 20 years of styling experience under his belt, he still takes courses abroad to study new techniques that can take your tresses to A-list status. “Jing simply gives his all in his work,” says local superstar and award-winning actress Anne Curtis. “I know he even regularly updates himself with latest trends abroad, making him a trendsetter in hairstyle also.”
There’s Anne (and fellow actress Judy Ann Agoncillo) working the cover of Jing’s latest venture—the J/Monis Hairzine. It’s the first of its kind in the country!
I think of this mag as a chic lookbook that’s filled with the hottest hairstyles. The models? Only all of Jing’s celeb clientele.
One of my faves shots inside is of Andi Eigenmann. Love her hair here!
There are a few sections where he discusses his coloring and grooming techniques for both men and women, so even from a stylist’s POV, this hairzine can be a source of inspiration.
The well-loved Jing with his muses during the launch party! He’s always super generous with all the hair tips and techniques he learns. “Sharing what I’ve learned is one of the ways I can help elevate the industry and help other stylists improve their craft,” says Jing.
Of course, I was also at the launch to show my support. So happy I also got to hang with actress Janine Gutierrez (she’s super nice!) and Monica Maceda of I Do Nails.
While there, I also got to see Daniel again (shot him as one of the centerfolds during my Cosmo days) and he pulled me into the best hug ever! He really did! #swooning
Here’s a closer look at his cover! During the launch, I learned that the J/Monis Hairzine is a flip magazine! It features women’s styles on one half and men’s grooming on the other—and all for just P275.
Have you grabbed your copy yet? Head to your local bookstores for one before they run out! So many gorgeous photos and hair inspiration inside! ♥
