my new 'do...

nahhh....just kidding. I was just playing with my new curling iron. But i swear, once i'm able to grow my hair longer, i'm gonna get some soft curls! Mark my word! :P

(hopefully, X won't be able to read this)

(and yeah, i had no idea how to use it....must PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE!)

I figured that i would need this in case a client would also want to have her hair done like some soft curls or something, at least i'd be able to do it as well. I've always wanted to do hair too. Someday, i would also study haircutting, coloring and perming...but i would need to study hair upstyling first. hehehe (so many things to do, so little time and money..LOL)

I would have to use LOVELY to practice curling...i've spent some time last night watching tutorials on youtube. I'll practice when i get the chance.

I went to an interview yesterday (again...whew...i hate going to interviews, really) and after 3 grueling hours of a panel interview, i decided to go to the mall and check out some hair tools. I wanted to get a separate hair straightener too (the one which can be used on wet hair) since what i have right now is the cheap one that's not ceramic (bad, i know) but it's so expensive. I wish i'll have another makeup gig soon, and i swear that's the first thing i'm gonna get :)

I got the curling iron for almost Php2500 and it's from Vidal Sassoon. I also got myself a hair conditioning spray to protect the hair from heat (not sure if this would work..any ideas on what should i get, please let me know dearies), my favorite conditioner and some more nichido eyeshadows. I really like these eyeshadows. With a good eye primer on, they stay on me for a long time, they are blendable and applies smoothly.

Deep Mauve, Snow and Electric Pink

(love the colors)
It's funny that i've been trying so hard to stay away from MAC and yet i can't stop buying makeup from other brands :)
Also, when i was checking out some hair tools at Watsons, Makati. Some of the ladies there kept on checking me out. I got really conscious, somehow annoyed since i really don't like people staring at me...most especially when they are whispering at each other while looking at me. I was on the verge of walking out when one of them approached me and said "Hello, ikaw si iamsutil ng abubots di ba?" (Hello, you are Iamsutil of Abubots, right?)
I was really surprised that i wasn't able to answer right away...then one of the salesladies approached us and said "Sabi na nga ba eh, kaya pala familiar ka, ma'am" (See, that's why you look kinda familiar). Then that's the only time i was able to give a nod and a sheepish smile. Whew...and i thought they were making fun of me since my hair's half straight and half curled because i've been trying out the curling irons. Then these ladies told me how they like my blog and even asked me to do some video tutorials for some of my looks. Wow, i was really happy to know that people really get to appreciate what i've been blogging. I feel like i am really gaining more friends thru my blog. I'm really touched :)
To those that i've met yesterday (sorry, can't remember all your names but you know who you are :>) I'll try my best to have video tuts next time. Once again, thanks for taking time to visit my blog. (hugs)
Whew...don't you love blogging, my darlings?

Tracy Roa said...

Cute hair! You make me want to try curling mine. I'm tired of my short hair now because I can barely do anything with it.

Ooh, you're famous now! :D

Gracie said...

I thought you look cute in your little curls Jheng :)

Wow! You're becoming more and more famous! I'd like to curl my hair every now and then but I can't seem to do it properly so I just go to the salon whenever I fancy it and save my little arms ha ha ha! Have you seen GHD in the PI? My friends and hairstylist swear on how good their hairstraighteners for creating nice sexy curls. GHD also sells great heat protecting products. I've only have it done on my hair as I'm hopeless having to do it on my own as I've said earlier ;)
