Green Propaganda

Jing Monis makes the oldie-but-goodie salon new again.
Green Propaganda Jing Monis makes the oldie-but-goodie salon new again.

First Alex, now Jing—it's truly the month of the beauty guru spin-off. Last October 12th, the city's most recognizable names got treated to the re-opening of one Manila's most beloved salons: Propaganda Salon is now revamped as Jing Monis by Propaganda, and the famous elite beauty hub now flies under the full operational and creative banner of one of its former part-owners.

Jing Monis, prolific hair and makeup stylist to the stars—his clientele includes everyone from veteran models like Tweetie De Leon to celebs like Sarah Geronimo and Judy Ann Santos to fashionistas such as Mandy de la Rama—brings his game to the next level with a relaunch that not only puts him front and center to better work with his adoring public, but which also features a new, more eco-conscious bent as well: Schwarzkopf Professional's earth-friendly, organic hair line Essensity will be on exclusive rotation in the salon.

Jing, whose career started some 15-odd years ago with a shampoo boy stint in Varona Salon, has rocketed to one of the most in-demand stylists in the country, having handled the hair and makeup needs of Manila's finest, who are all quick to cite his professionalism and sheer talent in bringing out each client's individual best. (Click here to see how he styled Judy Ann Santos' hair to cover perfection this month.)

To punctuate the salon's new look are the fun, modern Mediterranean-inspired interiors by designer Roan Espino. Patrons who loved the whitewashed, shabby-chic look of the original salon will be tickled pink—and purple, and orange—by the fun, fresh updates to the space, which take on Jing's own lively personality as its muse.

Check out the punchy new place (and gentle line of Schwarzkopf Essensity haircare and styling products) at Jing Monis by Propaganda Salon at the 3/F Greenbelt 1, Ayala Center, Makati City.
