The Binibining Pilipinas 2019 Candidates graced the David’s Salon Head Office and had a relaxing pampering session during their official sponsor’s visit last April 10, 2019.
They arrived in the morning and were welcomed with a hearty breakfast spread. After getting their fill of food, the ladies went up to the penthouse residence of Mr. David Charlton, where he, along with Creative Director Laura Charlton and family, personally welcomed them. The girls felt very at home and lucky to not just be visitors but personal house guests of the owner and founder of David’s Salon. After that, they toured the Head Office and visited all the departments, gamely posing and taking pictures with everyone.
Once the photo ops were over, the girls were gathered for a short program. Marketing Manager Candy Cartavio gave the girls an introduction to David’s Salon and Binibining Pilipinas with a photo slideshow, while long-time Binibining Pilipinas Point Person Cita Rosales shared the history of the BPCI and David’s Salon partnership. Handling the project for over 20 years, Rosales definitely knew her history, and shared with the girls tips on how David’s can help them in their pageant journey by communicating clearly and being very open to their assigned stylists. After that, the elite David’s Salon Binibining Pilipinas Stylists Team was formally introduced to the girls. The candidates and stylists have already worked together on several official functions, but this gave them a background and deeper understanding of who the stylists are. The stylists were then photographed with their assigned candidates.
The rest of the visit was all about pampering. All the ladies were given relaxing massages and manipedis. With their intense pageant schedule, the ladies appreciated this much-needed downtime. They also indulged in delicious food. Union Jack Tavern, Mr. David Charlton’s restaurant, served lunch with a mouth-watering spread of their best dishes. The ladies enjoyed the signature Fish and Chips, as well as other Indian and Italian dishes. Afternoon snacks were also served, making sure the girls had their heart’s desire of gustatory treats after getting their nails done.
All the ladies went home with gift packs of exclusive David’s Salon products, which included a shampoo and conditioner set, the hair serum, and soap. The ladies left the building refreshed, relaxed, and re-energized for their road to the crown.
