CLOVER SALON – waterfall braids and 38% off

As I’ve been quite satisfied with my hair colour recently and trying to avoid damage from having too many color changes to it. I’ve chosen to go just for a simple protein hair treatment and some styling recently with Vernice from Clover Salon. :)

A hair treatment for hair my length will cost around $168 before discount. For shorter hair it will probably cost $128. The hair tech will pick out either a color treatment, repair or a hydration treatment according to their analysis of your hair.

For those keen to touch up on your color, it cost $78. And for those who want to do a hair dye it will cost $148.

 

And hair styling will commence at $45.

Clover salon offers 2 types of treatments (Either the Wella or SP brand). Today I’m trying out Wella since I’ve previously done SP’s color lock.

Please drop me an email at hello@party-parlour.com if you’re keen on receiving Clover’s membership card. The card entitles you to 20% off chemical services with my hairstylist, Vernice. Prices above are before discount :) from now till August.

But guess what? there’s even better news!

One of Vernice’s colleague starts of with washing my hair , and then applying the wella hair mask as well as serum. Afterwhich they start steaming my hair


Oh yes. my head is up in space now. Anyways this takes about 15minutes :)

Afterwhich Vernice and her colleague do a quick blowdry for me. And we’re done!

Curling your hair with a flat-iron

Earlier this week,

I went to the photo studio as I was going to be featured on April’s issue of SimplyHer magazine.

I then met Eileen from Expect studios (liang court) and watched as she used a flat iron to give me soft curls for the look they wanted for me. It’s always nice to have someone see to your hair and make up, but it’s not like we have access to one everyday. And I realised it isn’t hard to pick up a skill or two in doing it yourself if you can afford the time from home. This isn’t the first time a flat iron was used to curl my hair by hairstylist. And I’ve never wanted to try because I had curling tongs at home. Not till I spotted a keratase travel size flat iron in my mom’s room the other day.

So the day after shoot, just before attend the Zegna spring summer launch of Z zegna at Paragon, I tried to recreate the look.

Making curls with a flat iron turns out to be pretty simple. It just takes practise to understand the angles and strength you want to apply while doing so to get a variety of curls. It’s the same with curling tongs where you learn to vary how tight you wanted your curls to be and in what angle you wanted them to curl.

Below is a video from youtube that illustrates the basic technic on how to twist your flat iron. As mine was a travel sized one, the curls were a little smaller.

Check out the Spring look on How to carry of flowery prints in this April’s issue of SimplyHer. More behind the scenes in my next post
