Evolution. Interesting how hair styling can easily transform one’s look, eh? But what if you don’t have the time or budget to hit the salon as often as you want? Here’s how to get a hair makeover… and even better, win a Samsung Galaxy SIII.
In TV (aka very thick) makeup for a video shoot we did in the University of Santo Tomas campus grounds yesterday. Good thing it was really thick, too, because it kind of served as sunblock for the face—as it turned out, we would be shooting all day under the sun.
Hang Ten shirt, Terranova pants and Skechers boots on Seph, Topshop dress and Schu flatforms on Shai. We can’t reveal yet what the shoot is for, but we’re hoping and praying that when it does come out, a lot of people would be able to watch it!
After the wrap. Would you look at that… The perfect lobster shade. Haha! It’s worth it though. Having a lot of friends in production and media, we always have fun in shoots, no matter how many hours it takes to wrap things up. Yesterday was no exception. Not only were we able to work with a global brand we believe in, we were also able to meet some Love Chic readers who came by to see us. Not bad for a Friday the 13th!

June is fast approaching, but we’re not ready for summer to be over just yet! Wearing bright happy colors (mostly on our hair!) for today’s agenda: the Superb by SuperSale Bazaar and Philippine Fashion Week.
Chemistry striped yellow shirt, SM Accessories, Bench jeans, Keds. Hype this on Lookbook here. I have a feeling this Chemistry shirt will become one of the items I go for on lazy days. It’s comfy and simple yet it’s striking enough because of the color and the yellow-on-yellow stripes.
"Blue-haired freak" Special Effects hair color from Funky Streaks. I’ve always wanted to try blue hair, but not just the spray-on ones. Good thing we found out about this cool online shop because not only does it carry a lot of different hair colors you can choose from, but Jane the owner also took the time to explain everything we needed to know before we colored our hair. I love how my blue hair turned out!
Chemistry floral harem playsuit, SM Accessories, Keds. Hype this on Lookbook here. There’s nothing comfier than sneakers when you have to manage a bazaar booth without any staff or helpers! At the same time, this cute Chemistry playsuit keeps the outfit from being too casual or boring—I love how the floral top is garterized to hug the upper torso, striking a balance with the comfy loose fit of the harem pants.
"Red passion" Manic Panic hair color from Funky Streaks. Like Seph, I’ve always wanted to try pink hair! Until now, bright red is the farthest I’ve gone with hair color. There were a couple of steps we had to take before we could achieve the exact shade we wanted, and even then, the hair color would change a bit after a few shampoos. But it’s worth it! Experimenting and getting different results is part of what makes DIY so fun.
View our Chictopia blog entry here! What do you think of our hair colors? We’re not so worried about them looking a bit too “extreme” because they’re semi-permanent, which means we can always change hair colors as quickly as we can change our minds. We’ll share the whole process in a separate blog entry sometime soon. Also, please keep sending in your questions about fashion, beauty, grooming or relationships! We do get them, we’re just going to be answering them by batch. Happy weekend, everyone!
