Blue Green Peekaboo Streaks In My Hair

Finally, I got to try something different for my hair this time round. Because I am no longer working, I can now take on colors which were previously frowned upon. I was recommended bluish-green peekaboo streaks in the under layers of my hair. Top it off with copper highlights around the crown and a dark base. I thought it was just right, something new and yet subtle.

First, I had a trim, I was told by my stylist, Ricky that I would be given more layers to bring out the peekaboo effect of the blue streaks. Next, the selected areas were bleached so that the blue color would set in easily.

I was given copper highlights around the top area and a darker base to make the colors pop. I was so used to having different shades of brown or red hair since I started dyeing my hair so I was really excited and anticipated the outcome of this dye job.

After rinsing off the dye, my locks were given a treatment that contained Moroccan Oil.

Moroccan oil is really good for hair, it rejuvenates and restores shine while keeping it moisturized. This was especially pampering for my hair since it just underwent a chemical treatment.

Check out the end results, I was really pleased to see more than just one shade of blue. The warm, emerald green added more character to the whole look. I’m really happy with the outcome. Ricky also had temporary curls done for me and my hair looks so pretty.

A day as a HDB Taitai Wannabe

Today was a great, well-spent day where I got to run my errands and best of all, didn’t have to go to work. (OK, so I took leave). Anyway,Mocha had to go to the groomers and so did his mummy.

And where else would I head to but Salon De Choix, conveniently located at Winsland House 1. If you are driving, then you can park at the Orchard Central car park which offers one of the cheapest parking fees in town.

Some camhoring before heading to the salon… 

I just had my hair colored a month back and the roots ain’t really showing. So I settled for a head massage & hair treatment today. The head massage included a treatment for sensitive scalp. All these chemical treatments like dyeing my hair have left my scalp rather red, angry-looking and ultra sensitive, so it was time to give it some good old loving. While the hair treatment nourished my tresses so that they were smooth and healthy-looking again.

The massage was so pampering, I nearly dozed off. After the massage from the hair oil with rose extract, I had my hair washed. And the massage that followed during the hair wash was so relaxing, I think I did really fall asleep for awhile.

The shampoo used (pictured above) was also specially suited for sensitive scalp. After the wash, I had a solution sprayed onto my scalp to soothe it. This was followed by the hair treatment with the Mythic Oil (as shown above).  Then followed by a 2nd hair wash to rinse off.

Finishing up, I had my hair styled into lovely curls, complete with the sweet-smelling Kerastase Elixir Ultime serum.

New Hair for the Chinese New Year

Once again, it’s my visit to Salon De Choix at Winsland House 1 for my monthly hair fix. This is how my hair looks like before the makeover.

If you recalled my Christmas Hair blog entry, I had the top part of my hair straightened with curls at the bottom. Also, from another past entry, my hair was dyed in a copper shade. With Chinese New Year round the corner, I was inspired to get red hair. So Elein suggested I did red highlights and a warm brown base.

And as usual, my favourite part of doing my hair at Salon De Choix is the pampering scalp massage I get. Did I also mention that they also have massage chairs at the wash area? I don’t think any other salons have this.

So are you ready for the unveiling of my new hairstyle?

TA-DA!

I’m like totally loving the red, it’s so gorgeous!!! Just check this out… red under layers that peek out of my warm brown base.

Beautiful, fiery & passionate RED! Love it to bits and won’t even mind if I had a whole hair of such a flaming red like Jee Choi of Asia’s Next Top Model.

New Hairstyle for Christmas

I’m back from Salon De Choix with a new hair style and just in time for Christmas!

My hair was getting SHAPELESS and MESSY. I just simply could not stand the sight of it especially after seeing how it appeared in photos.

That’s me at an event with shapeless-looking hair. Defintely not party ready for the festive season. So initially I thought of just rebonding my hair straight but that might have been too boring since I used to rebond it all the time. In the end, I settled for a perm at the ends while the top part gets rebonded for a tidier look.

After the chemical solution for rebonding is applied, it is then given some time to settle in. After a wash, out comes the straightening iron!

This is the portion where my curls would begin from.

The rollers are added on for the curling effect.

The hair is then left for awhile to let the chemical solution settle in.

It was lunch time so I had a cup noodle. Salon De Choix has cup noodles for customers that end up staying in the salon for a long duration due to their hair treatments or services.

Once the solution has settled in then it’s time for a wash, I must say I really enjoy the lovely massage Elein gave me. And did I mention that their seats have a built-in massager!?! This is great for those who go for long duration hair treatments such as rebonding where you have to sit for a few hours.

Next, my hair gets pampered with a protein mask!

 Elein blow dries my hair with this unique add-on feature to the hair dryer. For you ladies who have curls and have no time in the morning to blow your hair with a brush. Then this would come in very handy! Just dump your hair in like as shown in the photo and let this nifty little apparatus work its magic. This can also be bought at the salon. It gives you lovely curls in just minutes! Amazing, right?

So I get my fringe trimmed into bangs. Why? Because I had to change my parting as it was starting to bald around that area. But my fringe was too stubborn and no matter how I comb my hair, it just won’t budge from the old parting. So I decided to just go for bangs then no need to worry about the parting and balding.

This is how my hair looked like once I was done. If you find this too curly or OTT, no worries. These are really very natural curls. I could just wash my hair and blow dry without curling it for a more natural and relaxed look.

If I tousle the bottom, it breaks out into these more natural-looking, loose curls which are really pretty and kind of Korean inspired. I really, really love my new hair do now. It’s like a new me for a new 2013!
