The summer sun doesn’t just put a spotlight on the bodies we’ve worked on, but the body we keep up top. Less clothes means more attention on our hair, which should keep its shape in the face of the heat and humidity. While taking a dip in the ocean gives your hair a wet n’ wild saltwater boost, there are products that can achieve the same beach-beautiful ‘do even when you’re in the city.

Using products from Bench FIX, B/BLOG slicked and styled the hot heads of Martin Reyes and Linn Oeymo, giving them summer hair that stays put even when the season’s gone.

MEET Martin Reyes, 22

Model, Former College Basketball Player & Recent Graduate of Business Management at DLSU

How did you get into modeling?

I started last October. Jonas [Gaffud of Mercator Management] saw my friend’s Instagram account and I was in one of his pictures. Then he told my friend to ask me if I wanted to model.

Any summer job you’re looking forward to?

I just graduated in February. I’ll probably apply to a corporate job in a few months. I’d like to work in Unilever or Nestle—possibly international companies.

What about plans for the rest of the season?

My friends and I are planning to go to La Union to surf more. When we went to 7107 recently, we stayed overnight in Zambales and went surfing. It was my first time to try and I was able to get up, though I kept on falling. We’re also planning to go to Boracay. I haven’t had the ultimate Boracay trip because of strict summer basketball practice in the past. But yeah, soon.

MEET Linn Oeymo, 20

Model & Comm-Arts Student at the Entrepreneur’s School of Asia

What’s some cool stuff you’ve done as a model?

I’ve been booked for fashion eds where I got to travel. Recently, I went to Bohol for a fashion shoot and I’ll also be going to Vigan and Pico de Loro in Batangas. I did a commercial and print ad for Modess last year. We went to Batangas for that. That’s probably the biggest project I’ve done so far. But I wish to do more high fashion campaigns in the future.

Any summer job you’re looking forward to?

I was interning for the digital production team of Summit Media, doing behind the scenes work at shoots and editing videos. This summer, I’ll be interning under Candy Magazine, helping out with styling and all-around stuff. Since I’m half-Norwegian, I want to intern at the Norwegian Embassy and see how it works there also.

What about any trips you’ve got planned?

I’m going to Singapore with my high school best friends in April. For the Labor Day weekend, I’m actually going to Boracay with my PMAP family. Since I’m also a beach girl, it’s perfect.

Are you excited to party?

I am! Of course, I have a wild side and I like to let that side out once in a while.
