Last week, I had the honor of attending the grand opening of Hair Philosophie by Jing Monis in Abreeza Mall, Davao. It was an occassion graced by media writers and bloggers from Manila and Davao, loyal customers, VIPs and celebrity guests Daniel Matsunaga, Kaye Abad, Paul Jake Castillo, Fifth Solomon, Nichole Baranda, Phoemela Baranda who hosted the event, and of course the genuis himself, Mr. Jing Monis.
Jing Monis has been in the industry for almost two decades now and his hairstyling and makeup artistry remains to be the one of the most coveted by the country’s top fashion and beauty editors, photographers, fashion designers, celebrities and loyal clientele ranging from career women to socialites. The high demand cemented his career, making him one of the most versatile and well-rounded player in his field.

Up Close with the Celebrity Endorsers
After the program, we were given the chance to have a little chit chat with the celebrity endorsers. Of course, I had to ask Daniel Matsunaga (because, duh?). Fine, I addressed my question to everyone. I asked how long have they been with Jing Monis and what made them stay. Daniel reckons that Jing Monis was his first hair stylist when he first arrived in the Philippines, roughly six years ago. Nichole Baranda, on the other hand, has been with her Tito Jing for four years now and shared that her favorite service is the Keratin treatment for her dry hair. Fifth Solomon also echoed that the Keratin Treatment is his favorite. When asked what makes Jing Monis different from other, Kaye Abad simply says “It’s Magic!”.
