We have BLOG YOUR VOTE Winners!

Hello everyone!

After going through all the reposts, trackbacks, and entries, HairinManila‘s BLOG YOUR VOTE contest has its winners!

Before anything else, I’d like to thank everyone who joined this contest. I sincerely enjoyed going through your posts and discovering your blogs. For those who sent in photos from when they voted, I reveled at your own May 10 stories. It was my way of discovering how the Elections turned out in other parts of the country. 🙂

Most of all, I’d like to thank you for voting! More than giving away prizes and blogging about the importance to vote, it’s truly a different and significant thing to have stood up, left your houses, and cast that vote! Maraming salamat!

FIRST, the two winners who were chosen among those who reposted this contest (with our official auditing partner for this contest, Random.org) are…

Congrats to Lee Shen Gee for winning the Pureology hair care set! And to Tracy Llanera for winning the L’Oreal Professionnel Serie Nature hair care set! Thank you for spreading the word about this contest! 🙂

Please e-mail me at hairinmanila@gmail.com so we can arrange how you can claim your prizes.

NEXT, the winner of the Kerastase Minis Set is Chinggay Labrador! See her photo and read her May 10 entry below:

The May 10 elections were a big deal for me, because during the last presidential elections years ago, my name was inexplicably removed from the registered voters list. This time, I really wanted to make sure I’d be able to exercise my right to vote! I went to my precinct with family in the afternoon, and was overwhelmed to find myself done with voting in under five minutes. I couldn’t believe how quick and painless the process was—I had to snap a photo of myself after voting.

This is me, in my messy room… My candidate didn’t win, but I showed my support by wearing his color on my hands! I painted my nails in support—even if it meant having the indelible ink ruin my manicure, haha… Being able to vote after that botched-up voter registration last time was WORTH it!

Congrats Chinggay! And thanks to everyone who joined! Watch out for our next contest; it’s sure to be another exciting one! 🙂


HairinManila’s BLOG YOUR VOTE Contest! Win a Kérastase Minis set or L’Oréal and Pureology products!

Hello HairinManila Readers!

To celebrate the upcoming National Elections (my first as a registered voter!), I’ll be giving away AMAAAZING prizes  to three lucky winners who share the same zeal and excitement as I have for casting my vote in the 2010 National Elections! Read on for the mechanics!

THE PRIZES!


This special HairinManila contest is two-fold:

ONE person will win an exclusive complete Kérastase minis set! We gave one away at the start of the year, and we felt that the Elections will be special enough to give another box away!

The set contains every single Kérastase mini shampoo, masque, conditioner and night treatment ever released

To win this, just e-mail us a photo of yourself at hairinmanila@gmail.com that shows how you participated during the May 10 Elections. Whether you voted (show that indelible ink!), volunteered as a poll-watcher, counted votes, or any other way possible, send your entries in! Please include a short description of what you did on May 10 with your photo entry. 🙂

***

TWO people will win hair care products from Pureology and L’Oreal Professionnel! One will win a shampoo and conditioner from Pureology, and another will win a shampoo and masque from L’oreal Professionnel’s Serie Nature line.

Pureology and Serie Nature both keep your hair beautiful AND contain environment-friendly ingredients!

To be one of the two winners:

1. Spread the word! Write about this contest in your Facebook wall/blog/Multiply/Myspace/Twitter/Tumblr/Plurk/etc.

2. Make sure to link your post to this post’s comments section. Please include the URL in your comment for me to check.

This contest is open to anyone in the Philippines! The winner of the Kerastase minis set will be picked from among the entries by me, while the two winners of hair care products will be chosen at random. Contest runs from April 29 to May 15, 11 pm.

Here at HairinManila, we don’t only want to impart to you good advice on the best hairstyles, hair products, and salons; we also want to our readers to be responsible citizens and proud Filipinos. So good luck everyone! I’m excited to see and read about what you’ll be doing to contribute to a clean, peaceful, and honest Elections. Mabuhay ang Pilipinas!


*Extended!* Look of the Week – Mar 24-Apr 10, 2010

Update: To give you more time to post your Travel Journal photos — including new ones you might have from Holy Week — we’re extending this week’s contest! New deadline is on April 10, Saturday. 🙂

It’s time for another Look of the Week giveaway!

In line with our Spring Summer “Travel Journal” story, this week’s Look of the Week Prize is a very limited (read: You can’t buy it anywhere!) L’Oréal Professionnel S/S 2010 Look Book! With over 30 images of hair and styling collaborations from stylists all over the world!

HairInManila is giving away three of these beauties to the best submissions for the contest period.

Click the images below for a peek into some of the pages inside the book!

Worth playing for? Click here to read the rules of the contest and email us your best travel fashionista photo now!

To make it more interesting and in line with the color collection, we’d like to see photos of yourself while traveling. To help you, descriptions that accompany your photo may answer the following questions:

Where are you in the photo?  What did you do in that particular destination?

Are you a Sophisticated Traveler or a Daring Adventurer?

How does your Look complement your travels?

Oh, and some more advice on how to improve your chances of winning:

  1. Take full body shots as we want to see your fashion style as well as your hair. Just sending a photo of your face (even if you have great hair) won’t be enough.
  2. Avoid dark and grainy pics. If we can’t see the details, it won’t make it. It doesn’t have to be studio or SLR quality.
  3. Add a caption or description to your photo to give you that additional, differentiating edge against the rest.

Good luck everyone!

Submissions start March 24 and end April 10, 10pm

Email me your photos at hairinmanila@gmail.com
