Liz de Asis, the Mane Artist

There are a number of pretty faces in the Ateneo, and quite a lot of them tend to end up in colorful tarpoulines waiting to be converted into makeshift sleeping mats and rain covers. However, not a lot can spend their time making someone else's face.. er.. hair look pretty. Enter the world of Liz.

A self-taught hair stylist, Liz has gone a long way from braiding her dog's hair. She's stepped into the world where hairspray meets insurance-backed celebrity hair strands. She probably has more shampoo bottles in her bathroom than the utensils in her kitchen. But we wouldn't know for sure. So stop reading this yawn-inspiring prologue and drop your eyes down to the words and photos below.
