If there’s anyone who has mastered the art of making casual hairstyles look chic, it’s Kathryn Bernardo. From loose curls to slick ponytails, the Teen Queen has an effortless sense of style that even we can pull off at school. Read on to know about her hair secrets, favorite go-to hairstyles, and ways on how you can do them on your own.
Loose waves are Kathryn’s signature look. She shares, “My favorite go-to hairstyle is undone waves parted in the middle. I do this myself. Mas messy, mas effortless.”
To achieve it, she blow-dries her hair in the cold setting to prevent hair damage. Then she braids sections of her hair and leaves them for a few minutes. Afterwards, she runs her fingers through her locks to get that natural wavy look. This is ideal for girls who don’t have the time to use a curling iron.
Look neat and chic by pulling off Kathryn’s low pony. She keeps it classy by gathering her locks on the nape of her neck and leaving some strands loose to frame her face. It’s a good way to look put-together minus the effort.
Sleek and straight
For days when you can't be bothered about styling your hair, try Kathryn's pin-straight locks. Part your locks in the middle and let them frame your face for that casual, model off-duty look. This style works best when paired with low-key but stylish fashion pieces, too.
Go and try this hairstyle if you want to add a bit of glam to your look. Don’t have time to iron your hair? Put it on a low bun for an hour (or sleep on it!) and loosen the waves afterwards.
To pull off these hairstyles, Kath makes sure that she always has healthy, long hair. She reveals that two of the most common hair problems she has are split ends and damaged hair because of the nature of her work. “I need to play around with different looks so I need to keep my hair long to make it easier to experiment on. Because of the nature of my work, I have my locks styled all the time. So it’s important to look for a hair partner that fits your lifestyle.”
Her go-to hair product: Sunsilk Strong and Long with biotin. “You need to find the right brand for you. I like Sunsilk because it nourishes your hair to be strong as it naturally grows. I also love its long-lasting fruity fresh fragrance. Especially if I’m at a taping, it makes me feel confident with my hair kahit pinagpapawisan. I also get the protection I need.”
As for her tip to girls who want to sport her casual hairstyles: “Take care of your hair. If you want to color or style it, go ahead. But make sure you have the right partner to care for and protect your hair.”
