It was a really lovely affair, what with all the models parading the runway with minimal make-up and hairstyling, highlighting their natural beauty. It was not a surprise though, since the famous “Crown Princess” Celeste Tuviera took charge of their hairstyle, while their clothes were courtesy of JC Buendia, Randy Ortiz and Joey Samson.
HANA is pushing for a new trend this year with #nofilterbeauty, which is totally against the principle of most people nowadays. Filter, the kind found in photo-editing apps, is a very essential tool in this digital age.
But to HANA distributors here in the Philippines (Peerless Lion), true beauty does not need any filter, or crash solutions. HANA believes real beauty is nourished the natural way. And it showed with the models’ hair. The whole show was like a scene straight from a magical kingdom. I swear I felt like seeing real-life goddesses the entire time. It was mesmerizing!
What I loved more about this night was that I was surrounded by a number of my friends and a lot of wonderful people in the industry. Lucy Torres was there! My favorite actor Enchong Dee was also present, even though he had to run from an earlier appointment. Good thing it was worth it!
I’m really excited with how HANA could possibly change the hair care game with its campaign, #nofilterbeauty! I’m totally in!
