2019 is off to a good start with news that Philippines' representative Karen Gallman was crowned as Miss Intercontinental 2018—a first for the Philippines! Now that all eyes are on her and the most expensive pageant crown, we can't help but notice her medium length hair pull off any hairstyle—which her hairstylist Renz Pangilinan can attest to!
"She can be glamorous, edgy, or just a simple blow out and she can still rock it!" Renz shares of Karen. He has previously worked with Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach, Miss International 2016 Kylie Verzosa, and Miss World 2013 Megan Young—no wonder he's one of the most trusted in the pageantry circle!
Of Renz's favorite look of Karen, it would be how the newly crowned queen can pull off medium cut hair so effortlessly. "I love it when she has straight hair with a side part. I think that it focuses more on her beauty."

Want to cop her 'do? Renz shares how below!
1. Blowout. "Super easy! A hack that I do is just to bend the ends of the hair to create the blow out look. And, oh, lots of volume!"
2. Beach waves. "The trick is to create waves in alternating direction. Don't forget your sea salt or beach spray!"
3. Top bun. "Show that beautiful face! I think this hairstyle makes everyone look longer and sleek."
