Going Dark For Work, New Hair Colour By Headlines HairDressing

 

I’m starting work and I decided that my bleached ends, which started showing after the granny chic grey faded off, were too bright. So after a consultation with Nic, my stylist, at the China Square branch. I have decided to join the dark side, since I also happen to look better with darker locks too.

And as usual, I left the shade to Nic’s decision since I knew my hair was in good hands. He settled for an ash brown tone and because my ends were bleached, it turned out pretty unique. The top of my hair is a shade of very dark brown that almost looks like black and while the ends have this slightly grayish blue tone. Loving my new hair colour so much! Continue reading

The granny hair trend has been around for a while, Kpop stars such as Hyunseung of b2st and BIGBANG’s Daesung to Hollywood’s bad girl, Rihanna have already been spotting silver grey locks a few years back. However, it had everyone embracing this latest hair trend only recently after A-listers such as Cara Delevingne went for this granny chic hue.

And I’m happy to announce that I’ve jumped on the granny hair bandwagon, well, at least for the ends. Because seriously, I don’t have the guts to go full on grey from roots to ends. But I love this much more subtle touch which Nic from Headlines Hairdressing had created for me.

The Latest Hair Trend: Lived In Hair Colour by Headlines Hairdressing

 

Move aside ombre, balayage and say HELLO to Lived-In Color, the latest hair trend that everyone is talking about. The lived-in color is best described by The Cut as “made-up words like bronde or blondette best describe the effect. The end of a strand will look ashy blonde, the one next to it, ashy brunette, and the root, a solid brown. But seen a step back, these strands somehow work together to form a hair waterfall of color.”

It’s a lovely mishmash of both styles to give your hair that au naturel look. To start off, my stylist Nic had to bleach the bottom layers first. That’s how you get the gorgeous cool ashy blonde at the bottom. Incorporating the Balayage’s french technique of application, Nic then painstakingly paints each individual strand with a brush to create the natural-looking highlights.

Time For A Change

I was too busy to get my hair done the past few months and only managed to find time this weekend to visit Salon De Choix. In a way, I should be thankful that my hair grows quite slowly so my natural roots ain’t very obvious. But having brown hair all the time was getting boring for me, I decided that it was time for a change.

My new stylist is Ricky, he was thinking about some funky styles for me. Unfortunately, due to my client-facing job nature, I am not allowed to have anything that is too groovy. We eventually settled with red. Because red is bright and yet not too loud. It’s gorgeous and looks good on me. Plus, I love red on my hair.

So I had 3 different colors on my hair. The base was the same shade of brown I’m currently spotting, followed by a middle layer of red and then black for the bottom layers. Sounds interesting? Yes, this is a new technique which I’m experiencing for the first time.

Now, let me share a quick run through of the whole hair session process. Dye was applied to my hair and then left on for around 30mins. After this, I had it rinsed off. And yes, this is my favorite part of a pampering hair session at Salon De Choix. They have these incredible massager seats in the hair washing area are an indulgence for the tired out working mother I am. And that’s not all, the head massage by Ricky helped relieved some tension and made me enjoy my hair session even more.

Next, I had the argan oil hair mask treatment to moisturize my hair after the dye job. After the second rinse off, my hair was trimmed before it was blown dry.

For my color-treated hair, the stylist used the Kerastase Elixir Kultime to achieve rich texture in my colored locks, so that it reflects light and radiance. It’s lovely fragrance is inspired by Coco Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle. And as my hair has always been dry, the Rapid Repair Spray was used to provide more moisture. Now my hair feels so soft and smooth, I can run my fingers through without getting any tangles!

I am very pleased with the outcome. The colors looked great on their own but when put together, it created an even greater impact and the whole image is just simply gorgeous!

The top layer is brown, middle layer is red and the ends are black. Such contrasting colors which are edgy and yet still safe for work.
