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

My Grey Hair By Headlines Hairdressing

 

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.

Even though this psychedelic combination is made up of just mystical turquoise and vibrant pink with a dark ash brown base. Some parts of it look like the hues of the rainbow where you can spot a little bit of blue and yellow too. You could say this look was inspired by all things magical, think unicorns, mermaids and faeries.

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.

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!
