It's hairstylist day today! That one day in the year where we raise our scissors to our beloved hairstylists and thank them for saving us from that home bleaching kit we should have never tried, or that DIY haircut that didn't go so well. They deserve our thanks. We may not be with them at this time, but we can show them support by shining a light on their amazing work. On this feature, we're looking at some inspired works by Filipino hairstylists, from celebrities to up-and-comers you need to watch out for.
A visit to Suyen's feed and you'll want to change up your look. She's styled the likes of Janine Gutierrez to Sarah Lahbati and Georgina Wilson, all of them having that fresh natural quality to hairstyling. Follow her on instagram @styledbysuyen.
