The pictures above may look familiar. Apparently I took the pictures for a salon client,  made a short feature on it, and included some of the pictures, in this same blogsite(

But there was more to just having a pictorial with the client, Paradigm Salon. Apparently some of the pictures were submitted to a hairstyling contest sponsored by world reknowned hairproduct brand, Davines (  The main focus was on the hairstyling itself, but as a photographer I had to capture the right angles, correct haircolor and incorporate a certain mood to the pictures for editorial purposes. But obviously, it was still a team effort with the stylists and the management of Paradigm Salon.

Just last week, I found out that one picture I took was chosen as part of the finalists among the thousands of hairshots presented. And on the final night, the group of hairstylists  of Paradigm Salon needs to create the same hair couture for the ultimate judging. And the group hopes we get the plum prize, for some bragging rights.

Just the same even if we don’t reach the top, thank you, Mr. Mhel (Owner) and Tony (Manager) for the opportunity to work with you. Goodluck to Paradigm Salon. Goodluck to us.

After 25 years of creating tresses in Metro Manila, Mr. Mhel Quita has chosen to settle in the swanky part of Sta. Rosa, Laguna, particularly in Paseo De Sta. Rosa with his salon, Paradigm. Effortlessly, the hair wizard makes the already beautiful ladies of Laguna and Tagaytay become even more exciting, even more stunning. With his expertise, Mr. Quita has developed a loyal set of clientele that makes his salon very popular, particularly during Saturdays and Sundays despite the high-priced services. Many habitues, both in Sta. Rosa and Tagaytay seek out Mhel’s personal hair treatment as part of their weekend vacation habit.

And in coming months, Paradigm will even switch gears by getting a bigger and better place in the vicinity, as the salon creates more superstar hairstylists, only Mr. Mhel can develop. To avail of the salon’s services, please call (049)5440394, and look for its able manager, Tony.
