Pageant fans warned the netizens to avoid going to any beauty salon today after Miss Universe Philippines Celeste Cortesi failed to enter the top 16 of the prestigious competition.
On January 15, fans expressed disappointment after the early exit of the country considered the worst result since 2010.
Some of them jokingly told the netizens not to avoid beauty salons for now as hairdressers who are mostly pageant fans may have a bad mood today or decided to close their business.
“MAINIT ULO NG MGA ACCLA SARADO ANG PARLOR BAWAL MAGPAGUPIT MAG-INGAT,” netizen @lanzpaduajr said.
“Ipagpaliban muna ang pag punta sa mga Parlor/Salon, baka pagsisihan mo!” netizen @kinglexter_ warned.
“Hopefully, nakapagpagupit na kahapon yung mga magpapagupit mahirap mag paayos sa parlor ngayon.” netizen @thebackpackerPH remarked.
The Philippines is one of the countries in the world where beauty pageants are popular.
University of the Philippines Arts and Letters Professor Jose Wendell Capili explained that the popularity of beauty pageant in the country started as early as 1940s.
However, some groups including Gabriela opposed beauty pageants in the country saying that businesses were using Filipinas to gain profit.
The Philippines won the Miss Universe 4 times.
