Sigh Styles for SunStar's Concept: MAKING THE BRAID

I was tasked again by SunStar to do another photo shoot, this time on different hair braid styles.  And definitely I said YES. I had no problem as to who will be my muse as I already had prior talks with one of the daughter's of my mom's friend.  Her name is MARY GRACE and she's really prepared for modeling, with that ideal statuesque, with long sleek hair, pristine white skin, lean yet chic figure and that pretty face. And she's another add-on to Sigh Style's list of break-out talents.


I prepared 8 hair braid styles and 3 hair stylists for this shoot. We completed the photo shoot in 4 hours. 
Only 5 hair braid styles were featured in SunStar's August 16, 2013 issue in Shopping Bag spread.


1. FULL CROWN BRAID


2. THE SIDE-SWEPT HIPPIE BRAID

3. THE FISHTAIL BRAID


4. SEMI-PUNK BRAID (I just named this)

5th HAIR BRAID STYLE


6. MODERN MILK MAID BRAID

7. CHINESE-INSPIRED BRAID

8. WATERFALL BRAID

As I said, among the 8 hair braid styles, only the first 5 styles were featured.
The photos below are the shots that made it on print.





Photography, Fashion Styling and Make-up by Yours truly for SIGH STYLES.
A one-man show right? :)
This is my first make-up project and I'm quite satisfied with my output.  I really intended to have a light make-up look so that the face will not over-power the hair. 

All clothes worn by the model are from CHIC VINTAGE.

Shopping in Woodstock and Kennesaw, Georgia, U.S.A.

Woodstock is a city in Cherokee County, Georgia, United States. The population was 29,898 at the 2015 census. Originally a stop on the Louisville and Nashville Railroad, Woodstock is part of the Atlanta metropolitan area. And Kennesaw is a city northwest of Atlanta, Georgia. The Southern Museum of Civil War and Locomotive History displays weapons and a steam locomotive. 
When I travel, aside from exploring famous tourist attractions of the place, my next favorite must-do is Shopping!

When in the cities Woodstock and Kennesaw in the state of Georgia, you will be amazed with the wide array of shopping destinations which are just a few meters drive away from each other.

My three-week vacation in Woodstock had allowed me to explore the varied shopping establishments of the cities of Woodstock and Kennesaw.  

Below is the summarized list of the type shops and the names of the specific commercial establishments that I have visited and shopped at and further below are the snapshots I collected f…

Eight Reasons Why Thailand Is Indeed Amazing

Thailand has been dubbed as the Land of Smiles and its catchy tag line is "Amazing Thailand".  I have gone to Bangkok, the capital of Thailand, three times and my latest trip last January of this year was unbelievably filled with all the fun, adventure and terrific blissful moments that are worth for keeps in my yottabye memory.
Without hesitation and with confidence, I certainly agree that Thailand is indeed an amazing place to spend time for vacation and even a pleasant place to settle down.  Though I've only been in Bangkok (and in Nonthaburi), but Bangkok offers all the reasons why I should keep visiting to their capital and to their country as well.
With my phenomenal experiences, I am revealing my top 8 reasons why Thailand is Indeed Amazing.

The PLACE

The land area of Bangkok is really vast, and the place that I would love to go back again and again is the area of SIAM.  I find it as the heart of Bangkok.  This is where shopping malls are like a hair-strand away fr…

Blending In With My Personal Style + Style Tips!

Transferring to a new location have initially distressed me. Everything was unaccustomed and I was back to zero, career-wise. Then, I was also in direly wanting to activate my Fashion Styling skills. The artist in me had a compelling fighting spirit. Why be afraid, why hide, why remain dormant? So, I went online and befriended creative minds alike.  And guess what? Last quarter of this year, I have successfully made my very first fashion styling collaboration with amazing Filipino talents in the field of photography here in Doha, Qatar and finally got acquainted with my online-turn-real-life friends: Eds Dela Cruz and Christine Lyn Espinosa.

Part of resettling is the embracing of foreign culture and adapting to their lifestyle which includes dressing up according to their norms.  If you have been following this blog, you might have known by now that my personal style has permanently gravitated to a direction that always had a touch of modesty. I prefer covering my extremities, wearing …
