Sarah Geronimo

One of the brightest stars in Philippine showbiz is Sarah Geronimo, who rose to fame after winning a talent show back in 2002. In nearly two decades, the triple threat has made her mark in music, on stage, and in a slew of blockbuster films. Whether she was paired with a screen heartthrob or carrying a movie on her own, she has had some memorable roles—and looks! Here are five of our favorite Sarah Geronimo movies and her iconic hairstyles.

It Takes A Man And A Woman (2013)

If their four beloved movies together are any indication, Sarah and actor John Lloyd Cruz have one of the most successful on-screen pairings in Philippine cinema. The third installment, It Takes a Man and a Woman continues their characters’ romantic arc, following their breakup and subsequent reunion as colleagues. In the movie, Laida version 2.0 returns to the country after living in the United States, and this time she’s bolder, stronger, and fiercer—with the hair to match! Her tousled bob with just oozes confidence and sex appeal.

You can get the look by shampooing your hair with a product that gives it some much-needed body. Try Sunsilk Naturals Coconut Hydration Shampoo, which moisturizes hair and makes it lightweight and bouncy without any limpness. After washing your hair, blow-dry the ends to get that flirty flip.

Finally Found Someone (2017)

In another Sarah-JLC hit, Sarah plays jilted bride Aprilyn Esguerra, who has to work with Raffy Sandoval (John Lloyd), a PR pro hired by the groom’s father to help Aprilyn move on after her heartbreak goes viral. 

While Sarah’s upswept ’do at her cancelled wedding and subsequent public meltdown is memorable, it’s her long, layered locks that have us swooning.

The layered cut gives the illusion of volume and movement, and softly frames her face. Want to make this style work for you? Just make sure to use frizz-taming products, like Sunsilk Smooth and Manageable Shampoo to keep layers in place.

Maybe This Time (2014)

Sarah is paired with heartthrob Coco Martin in this rom-com, where they play Steph Asuncion and Tonio Bugayong, two characters who enjoy a summer romance—that is, until Tonio abruptly leaves. Before having her heart broken, Sarah is all sweetness and innocence, with a sleek, short bob accessorized with headbands and hairclips.

Get Sarah’s fresh, radiant look with a shine-boosting shampoo like Sunsilk Naturals Sakura & Raspberry Radiance Shampoo, which contains sakura and raspberries to purify and bring out hair’s natural shine. Don’t forget the headband!

The Breakup Playlist (2015)

In The Breakup Playlist, aspiring musician Gino Avila (Piolo Pascual), convinces law student Trixie David (Sarah) to join his band. As these movies go, they eventually catch feelings but naturally, there are a few obstacles along the way.

Trixie’s go-to is a messy bun, a quick and easy hairdo for a busy girl. To achieve the look, pull your hair into a ponytail to your desired height, twist it around the ponytail base, then secure with an elastic or some bobby pins. If you want your bun to look extra chunky, you can tease your hair with a comb or your fingers before twisting. Pull out a few tendrils around your face to add to the relaxed, casual look.

Unforgettable (2019)

Proving that she can carry a movie on her own, Sarah stars in Unforgettable, a heartwarming story about a girl named Jasmine who travels a long distance with a dog to comfort her sick grandmother. Sarah holds her own against screen veteran Gina Pareno, bringing charisma and sensitivity to the role. She also brings a !

Get the look by using a flat iron to curl your hair, then run your fingers through your curls to break them up. Finish with a texturizing hair spray like TRESemmé’s Compressed Micro Mist Texture Hold.
