Beauty pageants are like money. Having some is good. Having more is better. One thing for sure, there's never enough beauty pageants in this world.
The Miss Sarawak Model of the World 2006 is yet another beauty pageant that just started in Sarawak this year. They held a hair show recently at the Travillion, and I popped in to
look at chio bu cuci mata study the situation.
The hair show was held in conjunction with Alan Salon. This being the first hair show I attended, I didn't quite know what to expect. Mannnn, what an eye opener it was.
The show started off innocently enough when four impossibly slim girls came out to parade in skimpy frocks and hair that rivals Mt Kinabalu in size.
This must be the Haute Couture of hair fashion industry designed to promote the reputation of the salon. Don't imagine anyone would wear these out on the streets.
This one looks like she has aircond piping going through her head.
I don't know if these four are contestants for Miss Sarawak or specially-hired dancers for the show - the emcee sorta rattled off a long list of names without exactly introducing who is who.
After a while, we're introduced to three hair models who will be the guinea pigs for the show. The three made a spectacular entrance, dashing out onto the platform wearing masks from masquerade balls.
This is her "Before" look.
Their stylists followed shortly, led by Alan himself of Alan Salon fame, and began chopping off hair left right centre like nobody's business.
Here's where it gets interesting. Because this is essentially a fashion show, the models had to have their hair cut while still posing as sexily as they can. So you have this awkward situation where a man is snip-snip-snipping off her hair, and then she had her hair falling all over the floor doing this.
Or even this.
Mommy, when I grow up, I want to be a hair stylist too.
Most of the spectators were here to gawk at the contestants for the Miss Sarawak MotW pageant, but strangely they played second fiddle to the hair show models, posing only when the stylists were doing their job.
There's a few great lookers among the contestants, but I think the crowd favourite that night was the girl in white.
OK lah she's probably not the crowd favourite, but at least she's my favourite can?
Something about her hot cowgirl demeanor appeals to me.
Anyway, the whole show lasted for a short 45 minutes, after a one-and-a-half hour delay. I kinda forgotten about the hair show that's going on halfway thru. In any case, here's the end result of one of the hair models.
The Miss Sarawak Model of the World will be decided at the Grand Final this 30th March at the Crowne Plaza.
I hope the cowgirl wins the show.
