Hairfies We Love And New ‘Dos to Welcome August with a Bang

A new month is around the corner once more: Another perfect excuse for a fresh start, be it in life or simply in beauty—time to try to venture out of your comfort zone and use a new makeup technique, or even better, cut or color your hair! It is true what has always been said: there really is no better time to tweak your look than now—yes, whether or not it’s the start of a new month. We’re always with you on your quest to looking the best version of yourself, so we’ve compiled some hair inspiration you’ll surely love:

Toni Gonzaga’s Glam Shag. It’s goodbye long hair for Mrs. Paul Soriano! Toni trooped to her trusted stylist Alex Carbonell several days ago to get a new look for her upcoming teleserye, Written in Our Stars. The result? A modern, medium-length voluminous shaggy bob that makes her look glam and effortlessly cool and edgy at the same time. Alex also updated Toni's hair color with some balayage highlights to complete the look. Makeover tip: Be realistic when going for a cut and color. Bring your peg but don't expect to get the same results as your hair texture and behavior might be different from those of your fave celeb's. Tell your stylist to adjust the cut to one that would best suit your hair type.


Bianca Gonzalez's Lengthier Locks. The mom-to-be, who's been growing out her hair for quite a while now, enjoyed having longer tresses again, thanks to hair extensions. Extensions are your best bet if you want to have more hair to style but is still in that awkward growing-out-your-locks phase. Makeover tip: Have an expert attach your hair extensions, especially if they're semi-permanent ones. You want a natural, seamless look so you need someone who knows how to properly place extensions by levels.


Anne Curtis' Caramel and Blonde Ends. Last week, Anne stepped out for an event sporting lighter-colored hair—but only on the bottom two inches of her lovely locks. This move highlighted her sunkissed complexion even more, and upgraded her cool factor to nonchalant edge. Makeover tip: If you want to boost your color but don't want the commitment of a full head hue change, this is for you. Make sure to ask your colorist to choose a combo of shades that would complement your natural (if you've got virgin hair) or current color—mismatched just wouldn't work.


Karylle's Va-Va-Voom Waves. Karylle unleashed her inner femme fatale during her recent Gandang Gabi Vice guesting with mom Zsa Zsa Padilla. Complementing her tastefully sexy black ensemble is a head of equally sexy big waves that catapulted her hotness factor to new heights. Makeover tip: Waves like Karylle's can only be achieved using barrel curling irons or rollers, so make them your BFFs if this is the signature look you want—or maybe save it for special occasions for an element of surprise.


Isabelle Daza's Natural-Hair-Don't-Care. The stunning morena beauty is blessed with beautiful raven locks and she flaunts them in all their au naturel glory. Effortlessly tousled hair, like hers in this photo, has taken the place of stick straight strands—we suggest you think twice before reaching for that straightening iron. Hair care reminder: Never ever forget to take extra care of your hair especially if you're subjecting it to heat styling or chemical treatments like coloring. A weekly deep conditioning treatment does wonders.
