As you know, in January, I had my whole head dyed ash grey to cover up my bleached ends. That color was just gorgeous but the ends were back to the original bleached shade in almost 2 months. So it was time to get a new color. This round, I decided to go for something more playful and yet subtle enough for the workplace. So I opted for blue and decided to add in another color for a more unique look. Continue reading

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

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.

Before THE HAIRCUT

If you had been following my blog, you would know that my hair is quite long. And I never had short hair for like the longest time… Honestly, I don’t know what got over me. But I was sick of my long hair & being a mom meant tying it up all the time because Asher keeps yanking it. I guess it didn’t help that part of my locks are bluish-green which made it looks like some fun strings to him.

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.

Pampering Hair Session at Salon De Choix

I’m excited to share that I just had my hair done. Situated conveniently in town at Winsland House 1, Salon De Choix offers a range of services which will solve all your hair woes.

Upon reaching the salon, I was warmly greeted and offered a seat. A drink of my choice & some biscuits were provided. My stylist, Elein Chong then started recommending me ideas for my hair. Dip-dyes are kind of passé now, but instead of moving away from it totally. The techniques are softened to give a more subtle look. Elein suggested that I try a graduation of tones from dark to something brighter in a copper shade.

Model rocking the Bridget Bardot inspired look

This is one of the trending shades for Autumn/Winter 2012 from the retro nouveau color collection inspired by the style of Bridget Bardot. Copper being a sensual & fiery shade like the iconic lady herself. Furthermore, this was suitable for work as well. Knowing that I was in good hands, I went along with her suggestion and I couldn’t wait for the end result.

But first, I was given a much needed hair cut because I’ve probably not trimmed my hair in ages. Just look at the pathetic state of my hair before we begin.  After almost a year of neglect (due to my pregnancy), my hair was screaming out for attention. Not only were my roots were showing, it was almost half of my entire hair length. Also, my hair felt tangled and dry, it was pretty much awful.

Check out the amount of hair cut, I have a headful of really thick hair that was weighing it down. So a little thinning would the do the trick. Next, the dye job begins. As my natural hair was raven black and stubborn, it took awhile for the color to show despite using heat.

After this, I had my hair washed and I must rave about the massage chairs they have! Even the hair wash was a pampering session where I could relax in.

Next,my hair was diagnosed and here’s the verdict:

It’s NORMAL, STRONG & THICK, can you believe it? I thought my hair was dry like hay. As you can see, my recommended prescription would be the Kerastase range for color-treated hair. So I was treated to this Kerastase treatment, it consists of the shampoo, fusio dose treatment & mask.

The Fusio-Dose treatment consists of a booster which contains Polyphenols and Ionium that provides anti-oxidative action to protect colored hair. The combination of this booster & the highly concentrated formula treatment would give your hair color an immediate radiance.

And the next step is my favorite because this treatment mist smells so good! Presenting the Kerastase Elixir Ultime!

For color-treated hair, this mist promotes rich texture in your colored locks, so that it reflects light and radiance. Its lovely fragrance is inspired by Coco Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle.

Now, you must be curious about how the end result looks like. Check it out!

Here’s a BEFORE & AFTER photo:

Can you see how smooth & silky my hair is now after the Kerastase treatment?

My hair looks transformed!!! And here’s a lovely photo of the stylist responsible for this wonderful job. Elein & me!
