This was not the hairstyle I had had in mind for Mae Arabelle Allosada. But because I was already pressed for time to catch what professional photographers call “golden hour,” what better way to do it than this? Thank goodness my niece’s hair was being cooperative, and I was able to come up with this style and find a good excuse to call it “vintage,” although I was hoping she’d look like a modern Filipina, for example, Venus Raj, Miss Universe 2010 4th runner-up, in a sleekly coiffed ponytail above her delicious chocolatey brown complexion.
