OPERATION: Bride Makeover

My friend Danielle and I were having a chat one afternoon about hair color. Dani, as we fondly call her, is a bride-to-be. With her wedding date fast approaching, we were trying to narrow down which salon would be best. The first salon that came to mind was JING MONIS SALON in Makati, after all he’s responsible for the luscious hair of big celebrities like Georgina Wilson, Lovi Poe, Divine Lee, and my IDOL of IDOLS Tweetie De Leon. And just like an amazing twist of fate, a few days after our random conversation, I received an email invitation from the newly opened Jing Monis Salon in Alabang! Even closer to home, hoorayyyy!!!:) So we booked an appointment with the Jing Monis staff and OPERATION: Bride Makeover was in place! 

Dani is a natural beauty, she’s very low maintenance and easy going. And so for this makeover it was crucial for us to make her still look like herself, to make her hair shine for her big day but in a subtle way. So BLONDE and AQUA colored streaks were definitely out of the question. For brides-to-be out there, it’s always important to have a little chat with your hair stylist prior to the treatment. Luckily, the staff at Jing Monis Alabang were very accommodating and welcomed our requests graciously. Communication is key and it’s a MUST for you to be very honest with your expectations and limitations. Also, you have to be able to trust the experts..listen to your hairdresser’s suggestions as well and try to meet halfway. Sometimes there are certain cuts that won’t flatter your face shape or shades that may not go well with your skin tone. There are many things to consider so be open minded when your stylist gives you advice. It’s also best to bring a friend, your sister, or mother along with you so they can chime in and give positive suggestions throughout the discussion as well.   

After two hours, TADAHHHH!!! A new and improved Dani looked stunning in her deep ash brown hair. Sadly, my photos don’t do any justice to the actual hair color..but trust me in person she looked amazing! Her hair looked shiny, healthy, and indeed WEDDING worthy!!! Her highlights complemented the hair cut making her bouncy waves even more gorgeous. The colorist gave her just the right pop of color to light up her face 🙂 And of course, I also gave myself a hair makeover as well…and I LOVE MY NEW HAIR!!!:) I feel like my hair was resurrected from it’s bleh blah color. So now I feel Holiday Happy with my new hair thanks to the wonderful staff of Jing Monis in Alabang.
There are a few couples I admire and Jay&Dani are one of them. What I love most about these two is that they always are so generous to one another, it’s almost like they’re always trying to out-give each other. January is going to be the start of a new adventure for these two! Exciting times ahead for the newlyweds! AWWWW, Pag-IBIG!!!

  1. Hi Ms Patty,

    I don’t know if you’re aware of this, but somebody is using your previous blog. It has been activated and still uses the same URL but different blog title. Here’s the link:

    Just wanted to tell you. I was really confused because I thought it was also you. Hope it doesn’t offend you that I shared it. Maybe it will also make your other readers aware of this. Thank you and keep it up! God bless…:)
