Solenn Heussaff, along with her stylish and multi-faceted celeb BFFs—Georgina Wilson, Isabelle Daza, Liz Uy, and Anne Curtis—have been dubbed the country's "It Girls" in the past few years. But surprisingly, the 32-year-old star was never really fond of the term.

"Well, for me I never really liked the title 'It Girl,' because I don't think I have the 'It' [factor]. For me, it's just like, 'whatever you want to do and you're doing it,' and that's fine. I guess what they mean by 'It Girl' (now) is maybe someone [who's] doing [things in] many different fields."

After it all, the Kapuso actress shares she's just grateful for the opportunities brought about by social media. "I'm lucky to [be in a] position where I can try different things..."

But apart from her following, Solenn believes her success lies in being honest and keeping it real. "If I launch something else, I know people will support. Also because, at the end of the thing that I showcase, every thing that I launch, every thing that I endorse are really products that I believe in.

"Long are the days when they used to get a face for a certain product. Now the brand ambassador needs to know details about [it], he needs to be able to share the experiences as well."

Aside from her showbiz commitments, one thing that keeps Solenn busy is the new salon she co-owns called The Bloc, which opened in February. For this new venture, she teamed up with hair and makeup artist Junie Sierra, and other fellow entrepreneurs.

When asked what inspired her to pursue this business, Solenn explained, "It's basically Junie Sierra who started this... It's a very comfortable salon and people know that, of course, I need to take care of my hair, it's our crowning glory. And of course, we all need to love it, but I'm not the type that likes to sit down in the salon.


"I like to do things at home or do things on my own. For this salon, I decided... I said, 'Okay, if I'm gonna have to sit for hours in a salon and do my hair and do treatments, I need something comfortable.'"

Solenn is proud to say that their salon has a lot to offer, and clients will feel very comfortable while they're getting their hair done.

"If you enter, there's a lot of fun places to have your OOTDs—I hand-painted an entire wall in the salon—and have wine and beer and just relax."

It girl or not, Solenn is definitely one inspiring businesswoman who always seems to know the best way to share her experiences with the world. Here's to more projects both on, and off cam!
