These are the styling mistakes you're probably making.

Just like coloring your hair, getting bangs can be a full-time commitment. Not everyone wakes up to a perfectly-styled fringe—yes, not even your favorite K-drama leading ladies. It takes effort to have bangs that puffy and perfect, but that doesn't mean you have to be a pro to have them.

In a video by Allure, Korean hairdresser Go Eun shared some dos and don'ts when it comes to achieving perfect K-style bangs. We swear they're not that hard! Cop her tricks below:

1. DON'T use rollers on wet hair.

Rolling wet bangs won't do much for your hair. In fact, it may even prevent you from achieving natural volume. Instead, blow dry your hair first or let it air dry before doing any styling.

2. DO place your rollers at the roots to create volume.

One of the most common mistakes in styling bangs is placing only one roller near the ends, resulting in poofy bangs instead of getting that natural volume. To avoid this, use a small roller and place it right under the roots of your hair. After, get a second roller and place it under the first roller to give your ends a slight curl. Take off the curlers by gently rolling them downwards so you won't lose the volume.

3. DO the criss-cross technique to prevent your roots from splitting.

Part your bangs in the middle to create two sections. Turn each section to the opposite direction to create an X, and then pin the ends to the side of your head. Leave this on for three minutes and then comb through your bangs to get rid of the split look.

4. DON'T apply any products on your bangs and don't touch it.

Bangs tend to split when they get greasy, which you can avoid by not coating them with any type of hair oil or serum. Avoid touching them as well, since your hands can transfer oils, too.

5. DO apply makeup above your brows.

Another cause for greasy bangs is not controlling the oil on your forehead and brows. The easiest remedy for this is to mattify your forehead with powder and fill in your brows with a matte product that also stops oil.

6. DO blot your forehead.

Don't like powder? Blot off oil by covering a cushion sponge with tissue and patting it over your forehead instead.

7. DO set your look with a hairspray.

Since you shouldn't apply products straight to your bangs, you can make your hairstyle last longer by misting hairspray all over your rollers so it can add hold and volume at once!

Planning a photoshoot isn’t that simple as you thought it would be, that is if you really want to come up with an elegant output. But worry no more, you can be able to do it in no time with the following tips:

1. Determine a Concept.

Photoshoot is a form of communication. It is an artists’ way of expressing themselves. When building a photoshoot concept, always keep in mind that you are not building it for yourself. But instead, you are doing it for everyone you want to communicate with. So in order to express yourself, do not settle with some mediocre concept. Be creative with it. Always bring with you your handy-dandy notes and keep recording your ideas, even the silliest ones. Sketch, draw, or even make an essay about it. Most importantly, burn with the idea of making it happen. For starters, check out Pinterest for more creative ideas.

2. Tell a story.

Ask yourself, what story would you like to tell everyone? How would you like to tell it to them? Is that story relatable to everybody? If you have the answers for each of these questions, then you are way ahead than everybody else. When you are having a photoshoot, you do not just aim and click your camera whenever and wherever you like. You have to consider the relevance of the shots you are taking. Remember, you are telling a story. And a good story needs to be planned. So take your time with constructing your own story. The rest will go along with it.

3. Pick your Location.

Any location will do as long as it connects with your idea or concept. You can use your garage, or even your backyard. However, if you decide to photograph outside, you may need to know a thing or two about photographing in a natural setting.

4. Timing.

In photography, you have to be poetic and playful at the same time. You must at least understand the technicalities of light. As they say, photography is a play of lights. Since we are talking with lights and all, what’s even more natural than the sunlight itself. Sunlight is like the holy grail of photography, especially when you are taking outside. I personally prefer either early in the morning or late in the afternoon, in which the sun provides us the most beautiful light we can see in a day — the Golden Hour. However, as a photographer, you have the freedom to choose your timing, which will of course suit with your own concept. So whatever you are aiming for with your concept, choose the time wisely.

5. Check the weather.

The more prepared you are, the better. Trust me! It’s very difficult to achieve your concept when it is contradicting with the weather, or you’ll end up switching your concept last minute.

6. Use a Prop!

Use props to help you execute your concept or narrative, and showcase your creativity. Interacting with something makes you more comfortable in front of the camera. However, pick only the ones which are relevant to your concept. You just don’t want to use a suit and tie attire if you have a beachy-vibe concept, right?

7. Styles and Color.

It is important to pick your style relevant to your concept and story to tell. Pick the right color that matches with your location, so that it will captivate the eyes of your audience. For instance, you can pick any bright colors and style if you have a lively photoshoot concept. On the contrary, monochrome colors if you want to tell a sad story in your photos.

Furthermore, you may not want to forget the most important thing for your model or as a model— the complete photoshoot outfit. 8. Reflection. As a model, check yourself in the mirror for styling and to practice your pose. This is important to build confidence in front of the camera.

I don't know. by Mariella Ysabel Amatus

I don’t know what to do. I feel lost. I don’t know what to do. I feel alone. I don’t know what to do. I feel abandoned. Dreams are things we ought to have. Without them, we might never know where will our future take us. We seem to be trained to have them. I want to be a nurse. I want to be a doctor. I want to be an engineer. I want to be a lawyer. Those are the lines children tell in front of people. It seems simple to dream. To have an ambition. Well, I thought it is. But, now, as I put a book on my lap, thinking about where my fate will lead me, it isn’t.

I feel drowned in the responsibility of knowing what I wanted. The season of college entrance tests are coming. Yet, I feel nothing but doubtful. I studied, but now, I am not doing such a thing. I felt so engrossed the last time I checked myself months ago. Now, I am unsure of what I want to do. I have to study. Yes, I know. However, I feel so dismissive to do something. I can’t even point out what’s the problem in me.

What am I doing? I must go, open some books, and study hard. But, I am never doing it in this present moment. Instead of challenging myself with tons of knowledge, I am here writing this passage with my mind resonating with unspoken words and truth. I seem insane, right? What will happen to me if I keep on doing nothing? Well, simple. I will never be successful - I know that. Then, what must I do?

Asking myself such a question will never suffice what I really need. Because, I’ve been asking myself questions all the time. Yet, I’ve never come up with answers. I don’t know what to do. I feel like being pained. I don’t know what to do. I feel like being tortured. I don’t know what to do. I feel like being misunderstood. I don’t know what to do. I don't know.

A Stranger "Things"

strangers can be not strangers, they can be someone else

Isn't it intimidating to interact with strangers? Majority will say "yes" certainly. No doubt, parents also come up with their very classic "Don't talk to strangers" smart advice for their children. But come to realize to take the opposite approach of it as we grow older, there's a tangled idea in our head it it is beneficial or not.

Finding comfort to someone we don't know is like finding a needle in the bunch of hay. A blurry-blurry thing, a no-percent no-possibility to happen. But not to compare, for others it's like their way of finding comfort, way to socialize, way to widen their circle of acquaintance, that's why psychologist somewhat agree with it. If the person didn't give you a ghastly vibe, why not give it a try to interact. It's kinda weird thing to open doors for strangers,but at the same time, its interesting. Think of this, why its easy for others to share secretes of them, or to have pretty intimate conversation to random person? Cause they say, "No judgement".

Why its okay to ask help to person we dont know if we are in unfamiliar place? Cause they can help us, and same goes in other way. Bottomline, Strangers are not just strangers or a person we dont know, or a person that our parents taught us not to talk to. They can be someone else who can help us in times of unfamiliarity of places or thing. They can be the person who sit next to you in the bus who ask for a little help for direction and end up having a great conversation.

They can be a lot more we didn't expect to, and you can tell by yourself that your best of friends you have today are once a complete stranger to you yet you end up having a strong bond of friendship. They are the person we completely don't know, we dont know their upbringings or what, but sometimes the can be more helpful to us than the others we know. By simply having a casual conversation with them, we're not noticing that they are giving us a diffirent approach to different aspects in life and unfortunately, this idea overpowers by just word "stranger". Hopefully, maybe now or then, we're very thankfull that we took the opposite approach of "do not talk to strangers"

Hi Candy! I saw a repost of your IG story from one of my good friends who happens to be your candy rookie, Margaux Nonato, about students who started their business this quarantine season. I wanted to submit my own story as well but didn’t have the guts to do so, until I read the stories of some students who happen to share the same experience as mine!

Telling my own story might be a little overdue, now that you’ve already published the article but I wanted to give this a try still if it means inspiring other people as well. I am an incoming third year medical student from De La Salle Medical and Health Sciences Institute and I have also decided to do something productive (aside from studying my backlogs of course) and something unique that may help me to challenge myself into exploring new things aside from human anatomy, pathology, and all those medical greatness.

Kudos to everyone who decided to start their online businesses! I must say it isn’t easy at all so we all deserve a round of applause for doing great and getting this far! I’ve always been a fan of baking since I was a kid. I remember making my own chocolate chip cookies when I was in second year high school and back then, I only baked with a microwave (since our oven was whack) and used choco choco as the chocolate in my cookies ???? they are not as bad as they seem! Trust me!

Since then I’ve always dreamed of finding the perfect recipe. I took Biochemistry in college and went straight to studying Medicine so my plan in finding the perfect recipe was always postponed since studying for my future patients will always be my number one priority. (Naks) Then Coronavirus happened. I just finished my last semester for 2nd year Med last June and I’ve decided to finally come up with the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe, then tried selling them for extra allowance to help in our expenses. In addition to my chocolate chip cookie recipe, I’ve also managed to bake chocolate crinkles and different varieties of brownies! Who would’ve thought that a super busy medical student would have the chance to bake and create her own online business as well? (While in Med School!!!)

So then I started my online business, named “Harina Manila”.You can also find it on instagram and facebook @harina.manila!! I like to call my baked goods “paboridough” because the ones that I bake are indeed my favorites and I‘d like to share it with everyone. Kaya sa mga broken hearted jan, dibale nang hindi ka niya pinili, sa Harina Manila, ikaw ang aming paboridough ???? (hahaha corny!) From deciding what to name your business, to buying ingredients almost every week, and finding the right packaging that fits your style, starting your own online business really takes time and dedication! But as they say, kapag may tiyaga, may nilaga!

This goes not only to medical students like me, but to all students who are struggling to keep themselves sane this quarantine season. Amidst the pandemic that we are facing right now, I hope that we may not forget to take good care of ourselves both physically and mentally. May we find the courage to remain optimistic and try new things that could help us grow and become better. Sharing with you my story this quarantine season, I hope I may be able to inspire other people into believing that they too, can do something amazing, heck there’s no limit to what we can all achieve! As long as we work hard for it, malayo ang mararating natin! I thank you, Candy Mag, for spreading good vibes and inspiration to everyone by publishing good stories! To all the lovely readers who took their time to read Candy’s article, if this ever gets published, I hope you remind yourselves today that you are capable of doing amazing things and that there is no limit to what you can achieve. Fighting! Dont forget to visit, like, and follow my page on Facebook and Instagram, Harina Manila (@harina.manila) and try out some of our baked goods! We got you covered, my paboridough! Thank you! ??
