I haven't written for some time... had to contend with a lot of things. I personally attend to all our couples' concerns; thus, I really take time to call each supplier, church, city hall, and the like. I find it amusing how some secretaries and AEs can be so accommodating and how others forget simple, basic courtesy. Haha!
We also had the formation week and awarding of the Ten Outstanding Students of NCR. I was there first day for the opening remarks and other activities, then I returned on the last day for the judging. I was also the emcee of the awarding ceremony. It's always a great experience to be with fellow TOSPs -- no one feels old, not even Ninong JCJ, the parents, and the other school administrators. Looking forward to the national formation and awarding. It will be great to go to Malacanang again to witness an awarding ceremony. :)
Ok... back to the topic... hair. My mom always told me (before she passed on) that my hair is my crowning glory; therefore, I should take time to at least comb it before getting inside the car. Haha! I always have difficulty getting my hair to stay in place. Maybe I'm just weird like that... :)
I really am amazed when I meet good stylists and see them at work. Imagine how much more amazement I felt when I encountered my wedding stylist -- not only was my hair fixed nicely, it also stayed in place the whole day without giving me a headache.
We started with rollers/curlers, styling aids, twisting, pinning, and the placing of all the hair accessories I brought. Then, he had to remove all of them, and transform the up-do into a down-do (or whatever it's called) -- under 10 minutes. I loved how he was able to do all these without once pulling my hair or making me feel like I'm losing my scalp.
What does it take to create a perfect hairstyle? Well, you have to get someone as good as Edwin... his hands are just magical. With him, "no pain, no gain" is a myth. Because there's no pain, but so much gain. After all, great hair = great pictures... :)
