Interior: Upon walking up a short flight of stairs, I enter into a trendy, industrial designed hair salon that will not look out of place in Japan, Taiwan or Hongkong. There is a very airy and spacious feel about this place, and it spells contemporary chic. Its actually very simple and clean, but not bare.

The second thing that caught my eye was a cozy corner with a sofa and a X-box for restless boyfriends/husbands/family/friend waiting for you! Beat that!
Name me another salon with an X-box. Faster, I count to 5 only.
There is a pillar of Wella products towards the center of the salon, and pictures of gorgeous skinny models with perfectly coiffed hair.
For the zen, there is aromatherapy and posters on the current promotions for you to read while your hair is being taken care of.
They give u many many magazines so you can read from cover to cover k! Then you no need to go and buy anymore lor.
And if you are super fussy and cant read to save your life ... HOW ABOUT AN IN-HOUSE IPAD WITH WIFI IN THE SALON!!!! Ok, you can thank me already.
Let's start proper!
A before look at my hay, I mean hair.
Pretty hairstylist Isabel promises to come to my rescue and we decide to change my total outlook and go for something really really different for the new year!
Initially I had wanted to keep my blond hair .. but I also desperately wanted a change and I hated my black roots for showing so we instantaneously decided to go to the DARK SIDE this time round!
One last look at my light-coloured hair!
Bye bye blond~
Starting to bleach some parts ... wait ... Why you bleach when you want to go dark, you ask?
Later I show you k..!
Say hello to my BFF!
Not I purposely ask her to come down, but she was out running errands and decided to pop by to keep me company! Yay! BFF forever~
Bleach me baby!
DANGER : Work in progress keep out !
Alien in the house
BFF looking all so serious here
But actually she's addicted to playing Candy Crush! Anyone playing? I dunno what is it!
Back to something more important please.
After FIRST wash and blow
Look at my BFF face! Omggg laugh die me can~
Remember those bleached portions?
Here's some PINK and PURPLE going on top of it!!!!!!! Say YEAH~!!!!!!!!
How can I possibly face a lifetime of BLACK hair without any COLOUR!
Excitedly awaiting the end result!!!!!! Woohoo!
Camera-shy Isabel! Lets towel dry it alittle first
And lets blow dry it!
I love Isabel for one main reason ... Besides the fact that she is totally humble and talkative (like me)
... SHE CAN DO A BLOODY GOOD BLOW DRY!
Isabel patiently teaching me how to maintain my locks and how to blow dry for volume
This is me after 6 hours in the salon!!!!
I had to get rid of my old hair colour, bleach streaks in, colour them pink and purple painstakingly ... and top off with violet-tone dark dark brown for my new look!
Look at these CURLS. No curling tong involved wtf.
Isabel can you please stay at my house and blow dry my hair everyday like this..!!!!
Most importantly .. Thank you my dearest shortie for being there with me..
I dunno where to find another crazy friend to sit down next to me, talk cock (alot) and play Candy Crush while making sure I dun freak out during the whole time ( Going from Blond to near Black IS a scary process I can safely assure you..) and most importantly ... thank you for buying popcorn chicken for me when I is bery hungry!!!
Had dinner, talked more rubbish and went home! Here's my hair after I got home :)
Pink pink pink purple purple pink purple
I had it layered in my hair so I dun shock anyone at home .. and going dark means that I dun need to deal with touch-ups that often. My hair looks healthier now, but I dun sacrifice style (and read: boring hair) by having these peek-a-boo subtle pink and purple strips under.
One day after - And no washing of hair to lock the colour in!
Look at the colour
Thank you all for staying with me ... and a BIG FLYING KISS to Essensuals Bugis for making it all possible! I would never have thought of going pink and purple so thank you Bryan, Carrie and Isabel and all the lovely assistants who helped me with my hair that day! xoxo
Here's a picture afew days after!
A special discount perfect for the new year!
Let me explain why Mythic Oil is better than Moroccan Oil?
- The light clean fragrance
- The hair feels and looks treated from roots to ends
-Mythic Oil is light to the touch, clean, and natural feeling and looking compared to a heavier more synthetic looking and feeling Moroccan Oil.
-Mythic Oil is perfect for all hair types and porosities allowing the hair to grab what is needs, penetrating the cuticle. Moroccan Oil lays more on the surface leaving a cosmetic coating on the hair.
-Mythic Oil is multi-purpose, a pre-treatment, conditioning treatment, perfect for use with heat tools and an excellent finishing product.
So hurry and get your tresses pampered this Chinese New Year! xoxo
