Photographer's Note

It's hard to be a girl. From the time you wake up in the morning till the last few minutes of the day, you have to look good, especially if you're dating, or still waiting for Mr. Right, or are already married. You have to wear nice clothes, wear makeup and maybe some pieces of jewelry, and have a fancy hairdo. And who said it's not costly???

This photo was taken in Manila during my summer vacation. My sister and I went to this "posh" hair salon in Manila to get a rebond treatment for her hair since it was so dry and lifeless. Not only did it cost her a lot of money, but also time: hair rebonding takes almost about 8-10 hours, depending on the length of hair. Good thing that there were two ladies available to do my sister's hair, otherwise, our 6-hour stay there would have become 10!

I only used my camera phone so sorry for the poor quality of this image.

Work done:
1. Increased saturation to show more colors.
2. Played with the shadows, midtones, and highlights.
3. Added a white border.

Anyway, I still believe that "Beauty is skin deep." It's what's in the heart of an individual that makes him/her beautiful in this life. So my advice? Laugh more, cry less :)

Peace to you all,
Kaye :)
