Janice de Belen and John Estrada's daughter Kaila Estrada recently tried the glass hair trend.

Glass hair is characterized by a sharp haircut styled perfectly to look shiny and polished.

It's pretty much like what we always see in shampoo commercials.

This hairstyle trend actually started in the '60s and hairstylists all over the world revived it and gave it a modern twist.

Kaila admits that she was not really keen on joining the bandwagon until she actually tried it.

The 23-year-old model told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), "I was very low maintenance about my hair before so I wouldn't say I'm always about glass hair.

"But I've always found it very sophisticated-looking and when I was doing Kerastase, they would cut my hair and fix it.

"I'm like, 'Wow, I can't believe that I've only done this hair cut now!' 'Cause I'm so in love with and I'm thinking of keeping it for a while."


PEP.ph caught up with Kaila at the EVA NYC & Kiss Exclusive New York Block Party last March 21, 2019 in Sky Park, SM Aura, Bonifacio Global City.

For Kaila, maintaining this hairstyle is not really that hard as long as you have the right products.

"I use a treatment conditioner and also the shampoo, and the Oleo Relax hair oil serum to keep it shiny and nice.


Being a model, Kaila said her hair is prone to damage especially with her work requiring different hairstyles.

She narrated, "Every day, I have to fix my hair. I blow dry my hair and flat iron my hair.

"So it goes through a lot of heat."

Kaila expounded, "It gets really dry because of the styling.

"Every time na nagwu-work ako, kailangan naka-style siya.

"Kailangan inaayos and it goes through a lot of stress. Even my scalp, it goes through a lot of stress."


To avoid damaging her hair further, she makes sure to treat her hair on her days off.

"It's really important to treat it on my days off to really treat and actually, you'll be surprised that what you eat really matters.

"And also if you can take multi-vitamins, that will also help heal your hair and sort of treat your hair, I do that also."

Kaila also managed to develop a haircare routine thet works for her hair type.

She told PEP.ph, "I like to use sprays like pre-styling sprays that protect my hair from heat."

Kaila added, "I always use conditioner. I shampoo every other day.

"And I use dry shampoo, but because of the humidity, my hair gets really oily.

"So I always have dry shampoo in my bag."

Another hair problem she needs to address often is hair volume.

She confessed, "Because of the humidity, it gets flat and it gets oily.


"So there are a lot of volumizing powders now that are available.

"I volumize it using dry shampoo and volumizing spray.

"So it sucks up the oil and it gives it volume so it looks fresh again."
