Suyen Salazar is a master when it comes to transforming hair. Whether cutting it or styling it, there’s a reason Manila’s It Girls trust her with their locks. Though she never thought of being a hairstylist, doing hair (even if it was just for family and friends) came naturally even without the proper education of hairstyling! It was only when she started working at beauty trade shows that she got inspired to get into the craft.
Her first endorsement shoot in Manila was with Isabelle Daza, who was impressed with her skills that she was recommended to the rest of their clan. She even did Martine Cajucom’s (Isabelle’s cousin) hair for her L’Officiel cover. Manila has become her home, and she hopes to be able to educate upcoming stylists and give them advice on the industry. She shares that the best advice she was given was to never stop learning and educating herself, because styles constantly change and it’s her responsibility to give clients the best of it. She also says to never compete with anyone.
Other than hairstyling, she loves to find new music and explore restaurants and different types of food. And in the little free time she has between jumping from one client to the next, she likes to watch movies or planning her next hair projects.
