Had the opportunity to go on a beauty trail with Orchard Central (OC) a few days ago and it was an eye opening experience as it was my first time doing spray-tanning, which I never thought I would! If you have been to Orchard Central, you would notice a few big beauty names like Pink Parlor, Hair Inn, Essensuals Hairdressing etc. For this beauty trail, I went for Mucota Scena treatment at Essensuals Hairdressing, customized facial treatment at Epitreatz and ﬁnally a Spray Tanning service at Pink Parlour

MUCOTA SCENA MOISTURISING TREATMENT AT ESSENSUALS HAIRDRESSING (#03-09)
Essensuals Hairdressing, a division of the world renowned Toni&Guy hairdressing brand was established over 15 years ago. Essensuals interpret catwalk and street inspired trends into wearable, desirable styles that require low maintenance between salon visits.
Sean, the head stylist and also my hairdresser was very professional and made sure to ﬁnd out my hair condition before recommending the right treatment for me. Below, I would take you through the steps of the treatment. Sean mentioned I have really dehydrated hair and doing the Mucota Scena treatment would prep my hair for bleaching in future.
STEP #1. Mucota Scena Adel – Moisture Base for treatment
This step is the most important step of the whole procedure as it makes hair soft and moist before the next treatment with its internal permeation typed moisture holding elements. I was given a wash at their washing corner and had to apply the treatment on for 10 minutes at the sink. It was rather comfy and during this time, Sean provided me with some blankets as it can get pretty cold. He’s indeed a very caring hair stylist.
STEP #2 Mucota Scena Brava – Repair damaged hair and keep better condition
Containing 5 kinds of hair repair elements to repair various damages and containing reactive ceramide-like ingredients that prevent them from ﬂowing from hair and keeping elements inside the hair. For this treatment, Sean used a spray and comb through the hair with it.
STEP #3 Mucota Scena Calore – Protect cuticle and get healthier hair
This step repairs cuticle damage and improves beautiful lustre. 2 kinds of cuticle repair elements give hair silky texture and shining lustre protecting hair from external damage. They used a steam machine to seal the nutrients into the hair. The whole procedure was quite fast as it took only an hour. Sean also reminded me not to wash my hair for 2 days for the treatment to be at its maximum effectiveness.
The ﬁnal results were amazing! I love my glossier and smoother hair. It feels lighter too and the results actually lasted until now.

MANUAL LYMPH DRAINAGE FACIAL AT EPI TREATZ (#03-16)
EPI TREATZ is a ﬁrm believer in adopting non-invasive and holistic approach to achieve optimal skin health.
They did the Manual Lymph Drainage Facial for me after checking my skin and realizing that there’s puffiness. It is also an important foundation and a ‘must have’ to a natural healthy skin. It kick starts the body’s lymph ﬂow, carrying away stale lymph from the face back into the bloodstream where it is broken down, thus reducing skin congestion and eliminating skin wastes and toxics. With reduced puffiness, I can achieve a slimmer face.
It comprises of their signature Miracle 4 Steps massage techniques detoxifying facial manipulation for an immediate brighter, ﬁrmer and younger skin in 1 session!
She started off first with deep cleansing of the skin with KEITHZ Brightening Cleansing Foam, to gently remove dead skin cells, follow by a soothing Ultrasonic Pore Softening Therapy for subsequent effective removal of skin congestions such as blackheads and whiteheads.
Once these are completed and the skin is being disinfected, she started with the signature Miracle 4 Steps to kickstart my skin lymph flow and proceed to the full process of the advanced Manual Lymph Drainage Facial.
Finally, she completed the facial with KEITHZ Ultra Hydrating Oxygen Face Masque. While waiting for my skin to be soothed and hydrated, the therapist pampered me with a relaxing shoulder and scalp massage.
Instantly, I noticed my skin was visibly brighter, eye bags were reduced, puffy face were slimmer and skin tone was more even toned. The whole procedure took about an hour and it was so relaxing. My therapist, Cindy was very good with the extraction. She made my skin a lot smoother.

SUNLESS SPRAY TANNING SERVICE AT PINK PARLOUR (#03-20)
A pioneer in the beauty services line since 2005, Pink Parlour offers nail, waxing, long term hair removal (Alpha Light) and spray tanning services, I have heard about them ever since I was young.
Their 2 hr Rapid Tan leaves you bronzed and glowing in no time. You get to keep the bronzer on for that instant fix, or wash off in 2 hrs and wait for the color to fully develop after 8 hrs. The end results are a natural looking, streak free tan in 15 mins.
You can choose from mid to dark shades in Bronze, Gold or Chocolate. You may also ask their friendly therapists to customise the best glow for your skin color. I chose the lightest color as I am rather fair so going too dark would not look natural as suggested by my therapists.
They use only paraban free spray tan solutions that contains organic aloe vera and green tea, natural coconut and DHA and is suitable for most skin types. It lasts about 5 to 10 days depending on individual skin condition. Unlike other spray tans in the market that uses UV light which is harmful to the skin, they use a sunless spray tan here. It was a very interesting ﬁrst-time experience for me. It was a stand and spray sort of process where the therapist would guide me to stand and lift my hands appropriately for even spraying. Done by a machine but handled by a therapist. The whole process was very cooling, fast and fuss-free!
She was very knowledgeable and even told me the beneﬁts of spray tanning. I heard that with this colouring technique, it protects the skin from harmful sun rays so in fact, you will become fairer after the spray wears off which did happen to me!
I had the beautiful tan on for awhile (about 5 days) and even though it wasn’t dark, it did make me look healthier and more radiant all of a sudden.
