Once, I uploaded this on instagram. I got a lot of questions asking how to use these things. They are metal coils for hair. These particular ones are from Goody. Please don’t ask me where to buy them. They are sold wherever Goody products are sold, practically everywhere. (EDIT: And no, these were not sent to me by Goody.)
I use them to hold my hair in a loose chignon. Here’s a messy version, during the judging of UP Interior Design competition. Someone in twitter asked me how I did my hair here. She said it was very “Hamptons.” Haha. Cute, but I had no idea what that meant. If it means I look like I didn’t care about my hair (like I always do), then that’s success! I honestly don’t have time to have my hair done everyday.
So yesterday during a UZ shoot, I attempted to do an instructional video. Denmark shot me using my iPhone. This one came out super messy though because my hair is extremely layered right now. It’s not supposed to have that starburst effect. If you twist your hair around carefully, you’ll succeed. The video sucks, but you’ll get the idea. Seriously, these coils – just two of them – can hold your hair up in a bun even without an elastic band. Each box comes with two coils, priced under P500.
If you are a fan of perfect Manila hair then this product is not for you. If you’ve been using those claws, this is a better and more invisible way of putting your hair up.
