Happy Valentines Day! :) I hope today will be a magical day for all of us — a day filled with love! Speaking of Valentine’s day, last week, I attended the Mane Style Series: Personal Hairstyling Workshop of Studio SnR Workshops. The workshop was about hair styling in time for Valentines day and the prom.

I’m 8 months pregnant and I usually don’t go to events anymore, but I just had to go to this one. Long have I wanted to go to a class that would teach me personal hair styling. It’s a good thing that Studio SnR came up with this workshop. This event was in collaboration with L’Oreal Professionnel, Tokyo Posh and Nippon Esthetic Solutions.

I arrived at Studio SnR at exactly 12:30 pm, just in time for the 1:00 pm workshop. I had time to talk to a few people there and time to check out the very cool goodie bag!

We were then welcomed by Sydney from Studio SnR to the event. Videos from both L’Oreal Professionnel and Tokyo Posh were shown to set the mood and to inspire us!

The teachers for the workshop were Tokyo Posh’s Denise Aquino and L’Oreal Professionnel’s Eddiemar Cabiltes. Each of them took us through numerous hairstyles that we could do at home. I never realized that hair extensions were that easy to put on and wear.

Hair Extensions

You can actually just clip on hair extensions. These synthetic ones seem like the real thing. Tokyo Posh has extensions that are made from synthetic material and real hair. My problem was always making curls last during parties. Denise mentioned that if you want curls to last, synthetic hair is better. The extensions that are made out of real hair, actually do work and is treated like real hair.

High Pony with extra flair!

During the workshop, they taught us how to create the high pony. I realized that to make my hair sleeker at the front (since I have a lot … as in A LOT! of baby hair), I need to use spray net. After the high pony, we all turned our ‘dos into buns.

to eventually create the messy bun…

They had to use extensions for my hair to create the messy bun since my hair was short, so I think you’ll see the difference in the color (since they had no extensions in my hair color). Although, Eddimar said that this was a trend now, having different colors for layers of your hair.

Another thing that they taught us was how to curl and iron our hair. For curling, I think it takes practice to master the curling iron. But I think once you get used to it, it will be easy to use.

How to curl and iron your hair

For ironing, always remember to start at the bottom and work through layers until you reach the top of your hair. You should also have the hottest temperature used at the bottom and decrease the heat as you reach the top.

I had fun during this workshop, but most of all, I learned a lot about hair styling!

Thanks, Studio SnR for holding this workshop!
