The Binibining Pilipinas Coronation Night was held last June 9, 2019 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum, and David’s Salon was there to provide all the hair and makeup needs for all 40 candidates.
As official Hair and Makeup Artists of Binibining Pilipinas, David’s Salon stylists and staff were the only stylists allowed in the hair and makeup area. A group of 38 stylists made up the official team.
The stylists were assigned candidates, and have been the ladies’ dedicated stylists since the Press Presentation last April 4. Since then, the official styling team worked with the candidates, trying on different styles to be able to find their best hair and makeup. To get their perfect looks, some official stylists even coordinated with the candidates’ glam teams and pageant camps to collaborate on their hair and makeup for the competition.
The day before the coronation night, a dress rehearsal was held, and the official stylists were there to create the final looks for the candidates. Any last minute tweaks were discussed and tested to make sure the Binibinis were at their best during the coronation night.
During the coronation night, both stylists and candidates were ready with their most beautiful creations. Candidates had up to three looks – one for the opening number and introduction, another for their swimsuit, and the final one for their long gown. However, some opted for the same style for swimsuit and long gown.
Mr. David Charlton, founder and CEO of David’s Salon, had a special role to play that night as he awarded the winner of the Talent Competition. The prize went to professional ballerina Cassandra Colleen Chan.
