Former Viva Hot Babes turned CEO Rachel Villanueva made it easy for a hub for luxury cars and an elegant salon to exist in one spot.

Former Viva Hot Babes member Rachel Villanueva has made a comeback, but this time she’s not in the entertainment industry. In addition to running a luxury car dealership, she runs one of Alabang’s most lavish salons. This time to share the news that her two businesses, Estetika Beauty and Wellness Beauty  Clinic, a sophisticated salon, and Autoflare, a hub for used luxury cars on consignment, had merged into one spot  in Alabang.

AutoFlare   (Hub)

Estetika Beauty and Wellness Beauty  Clinic

The huge Autoflare  and  Estetika headquarters was formerly a Botanika condo showroom. There are automobiles on exhibit inside. The hair salon, the mani-pedi lounge, and the soon-to-open beauty and slimming center are all located in distinct rooms.

Villanueva was only 20 years old when the third group of Viva Hot Babes was founded, sometime around 2005. It is a Filipino pop girl group composed of actresses and models, founded in Manila by producer Vicente “Vic” del Rosario, Jr. in 2003. Her father was highly attentive and disapproved of any suggestive magazine poses, which limited her ability to enjoy being in the spotlight. She also found out she was pregnant, fell in love, and left the entertainment business forever.

She stated that sales was where she had found her area of expertise. She had the opportunity to sell a number of aged units while working at Mercedes-Benz Alabang, and she used the commission to start her first company. “Doon ko po nakuha ang funds ko,” she added.

Being mentored by Dexter Co, her business partner and managing director of Autoflare who also owns a number of auto dealerships, is fortunate.

Ella V, another Viva Hot Babes member, and Rachel work together. One of Estetika’s must-try signature products is Esthemax skincare,  distributed by Vglow Beauty Bar which Ella V distributes. Products like the hydrojelly mask, which reduces skin drooping and is made from organic Australian sheep placenta, are available from Esthemax.

Both Rachel and Ella V thank their time as Viva Hot Babes for teaching them valuable lessons and giving them the motivation to become the driven, prosperous businesswomen they are today. “Ang ganda pakinggan, meron kami napuntahan, hindi lang kami Viva Hot Babes.” Ella V, owns V Glow Beauty Bar with three locations in California, stated, “We would like to inspire all the mothers and ladies out there na gusto magnegosyo kahit konti.”

Rachel urges people to take care of themselves and look their best even though the coronavirus is still a concern. “Hindi ibig sabihin na pandemic, kelangan pandemic na rin itsura mo. Always take good care of yourself.”


Estetika Wellness and Beauty Clinic and AutoFlare are located in Phase 1 Block 7, Spectrum District, Filinvest City, Alabang, Muntinlupa City (in front of Festival Mall on Commerce Avenue).

Until August 2022, they are offering 40% off all beauty services.
