Since she started her career as a model and especially after she was hailed as one of Cosmo's 8 Sexiest Models in 2013, Maan Marquez became no stranger to stressful work days. All-day shoots, events, and other gigs—these are all part of her routine. And did you know that she's also still in shool? Talk about being busy! And like every CG, Maan knows how to look fabulous through it all.
The secret? She makes sure her hair stays #onfleek no matter how hectic her schedule is. Want to see this in action? In the second episode of Cosmo Dare, we challenged Maan to be a stylist for a day. While she was performing the tasks, she wore three easy hairstyles that you, too, can cop for super hectic days.
9:00AM The Loose Bun
In Maan’s own words, pulling out clothes (her first task) is shopping—minus the fun. You need to consider a lot of things like what will look good on the model, what style works for her and the campaign, and what options you should bring in case you need a backup. Of course, there’s also the stress of rummaging through racks of clothing or piles of accessories, hauling all of the items, and making sure you keep everything in mint condition.
The #DoItAllHair Trick: Maan made sure she can do it all by using Pantene 3-Minute Miracle Conditioner. Since she prepped with the right conditioner that kept her hair moisturized and smooth, it was easy to put her hair up in a bun and work without stray strands getting in her way.
12:00PM The Side-Swept Braid
Editorial shoots are not all glitz and glamor. Behind the scenes, the glam team works overtime to get the perfect outcome. As a stylist, you need to make sure that all the clothes and accessories look photo-ready. You have to use your hands, get creative with clips, and sometimes even get down on your knees to make sure every element of the look is perfect.
The #DoItAllHair Trick: In editorial shoots, you need a fuss-free hairstyle, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be stylish. That’s why Maan went with a sweet, side-swept braid. It framed her face nicely, thanks to Pantene 3-Minute Miracle Conditioner that kept her locks shiny and totally pretty despite the heat and stress inside and outside the studio.
7:00PM The Twist-And-Tuck
Of course, we all need #WorkLifeBalance, but it’s easier said (or tweeted) than done! After spending the entire day getting stressed in your job (plus the traffic in your commute and the heat in the city), how do you still look gorg for a date?
The #DoItAllHair Trick: Maan’s tip was to simply unravel her braided hair and keep her tresses neat and pinned back. Pantene 3-Minute Miracle Conditioner surely made a difference as it kept her hair looking amazing even though she spent the whole day working. Her sultry romantic look had her date (none other than Cosmo Hunk Vince Van Dorpe) smitten!
