Red Highlights With Artistry Hair

Artistry Hair Professional – Getting Highlights Done

headlines hair dressing

So my roots have grown out quite a bit and I know it’s time that I should have a fresh coat of color for my hair at Artistry Hair. However, I’m quite bored with a single hair color and quite missed my crazy ombre hair color days. After discussing with Elein, the best option to not bleach and get some vibrancy in my hair is to highlight, with red and to go with a darker base color to have a more blended contrast.

I cannot emphasis more that hair treatment is very important to healthy and pretty hair. I love the Mucota ABC treatment that Elein have been doing for me after every dye job. As the name suggests, it’s a three step treatment to help treat and lock the nutrients in the hair, leaving it smooth and shiny.

An example of the C step. This is the last step which acts like a hair mask.

Here’s the side view. I like how just simple highlights can make my hair so much more vibrant and interesting! And this is done without any bleaching!

Check out the highlights done at the back portion of my hair, the red is more concentrated there so if I pull my hair up, it will be all red.

As you can see from the previous photo, I’ve more red highlights right at the back of my hair so it will be very obvious when I’ve my hair up in a pony tail or other similar styles. I like how just simple highlights can spice up one’s look and encourage playing with different hair styles.

Colour Change With Artistry Hair: Olive Brown Hair

It’s been awhile since I have a change of colour. If you noticed, I focus more on treatment to get my hair back to optimal health. Now that the hair is healthier, it’s time to change the hair colour! As mentioned before, Elein is a hairstylist that I fully trust with my hair and colour choices. That’s why I just leave it to her to help me decide on a new colour choice. My previous hair colour was with a little reddish, copper tone that can look a little dry when I neglect my hair a little.

Elein decided to go with a brown with green tones for my colour change this time round and I love the results! I love red hair but it is a pretty common colour change and it’s nice to be different from the majority. And of course, after getting my hair dyed to this Olive Brown shade, Elein did the DYNA ABC hair treatment for me to further nourish and repair my hair. Remember, it’s important to go for regular treatments to get beautiful looking hair. Regardless of how good the hair dye is, it still tend to dry the hair out a little, so don’t forget the hair treatments!

I think I really like this Olive Brown Hair which is so different from the previous warm tones that I’ve been wearing. I especially like how a simple colour change can help boost and change one looks.

Of course, it’s important to have a trusty hair stylist that make decisions for your welfare. I’m glad to have Elein to take care of my hair!

Dyna Perm and Treatment at Artistry

I’m back at Artistry Hair Professional for another round of pampering session for the hair!

It have been two months since I did the Signature Hair Treatment at Artistry and my hair is still in pretty good condition. To be fair, I did not wash my hair before heading to Artistry hence my before photo looks a little messy. Haha.

Elein decided to perm my hair for me to give me a different look. I’ve only perm my hair once back when I was 19 so I’m quite excited to see how I will look like with permed hair again after 6 years. Different from the usual perm treatment, Dyna Perm is used over at Artistry. Similar to the hair treatment that I did, the Dyna Perm is sort of like a treatment perm for the hair while giving the natural wavy effect.

After doing the Dyna Perm, Elein proceed to do the Dyna ABC treatment for me. As the name suggest, the ABC consist of three steps to help repair and lock the nutrients into our hair. And of course, we need to steam the hair to allow the nutrients to be absorbed.

This is after blow dry. I can have nice curls now without using the curling tongs! Just need to twist and blow and I’m done!

Dyna Perm Effect

 

Thanks to Elein once again for the pretty hair. I cannot emphasize this enough, but looking for a good and trusty hair stylist is important. Your hair can really affect how your look so it’s good to invest in it.

And I’ve actually read about a perm job gone wrong for a Malaysian lady online while I was getting my hair permed by Elein. But as I trust Elein, I did not worry for a single moment that my hair will go wrong. Over at headlines, stylists use only high quality treatment products like Dyna Perm and will add on proteins and nutrients products based on the condition of the client’s hair to achieve the effect and at the same time protecting the hair.

A back view of the hair before I end the post. I’m loving how the curls fall on my back nicely if I choose to wear it loose like that. I also must say that this is so much easier to maintain as compared to my perm last time. I just have to separate my hair into two parts, twist it and use the hair dryer to blow a little and the curls will come alive. 5 minutes and I’m done!

Headlines Hairdressing Signature Treatment

Having gone through 18 months of constant chemical treatments to my hair, I chopped it off and decided to take a break and regrow my hair for the past one year. Its not an easy journey and definitely not easy to nurse the hair back to how healthy it was prior to all the bleaching.

I must say it’s a blessing to be reunited with Elein, who have always taken great care of my hair and scalp and know what suits me best rather then what’s in trend.

Elein has relocated to Headlines Hairdressing By Artistry International Plaza branch and I know I need to look for her to get her to help fix my hair. She’s definitely a stylist that I trust with my hair.

When I reached Headlines, Elein informed me that she will be doing the Headlines Hairdressing Signature Treatment to fix my hair before we do any coloring in the next visit. To be honest, I was quite skeptical about hair treatments as I have done a number of time and the effects never lasted after a hair wash. But I trusted the professionalism of Elein, and I was literally blown away by the results.

Pictures speaks louder than words so here’s a before and after photo for reference. Elein also gave me a trim to better shape my hair to suit my face shape.

And most importantly, does the effect last? I’ve washed my hair daily after the treatment and it is still as smooth! My hair is so much more manageable after the treatment! I now only spend 5 minutes on my hair every morning when I used to take at least 10 minutes. (That’s an extra 5 minutes I can take to perfect that eyeliner. lol)

I am totally sold to this Signature Hair Treatment by Headlines! I have also spoken with Jerry who’s the director of the International Plaza branch and am glad to hear that his direction for his salon is to ensure that all his clients can achieve healthy, natural looking hair. And that I witness while I was doing the treatment. I think it is very important for a stylist to be looking out for the health of your hair and scalp.

Loving that smooth silky look of the hair after treatment!!

I highly recommend Elein as she’s really meticulous! Even after 1 year plus, she still remember that my scalp is sensitive and took extra care to protect my scalp before proceeding with the treatment.

Hair Diary: Gone Black

It was roughly 6 years ago when I first dyed my hair. Even then, my hair was a very dark sort of brown and not jet black to start with. (It could also be due to chlorine as I swam often last time.)

I have been through many shades of brown, bleached my hair, gone through loads of crazy fashion colors when I was being sponsored. No hair looks healthy after putting it through so much chemical treatments, regardless of nourishing treatments which is also chemicals.

My thick long hair have since thinned out, dropping more hair then ever. My hair ends are also dry and damaged from bleaching. Which was the very first reason I chopped off my hair last year, other than wanting to try the short hair look.

So now I’m trying to nurture my hair back to health. Using PHYTO brand of hair care now alternating it with a normal shampoo with moisturizing effects. It is helping and I’ll touch more on those products in another post. I’m also eating Vitamin B which is apparently good for hair and nails.

As I’m growing my hair, I dyed it red once with an organic hair dye and it looked good while it lasted. Now that it had faded and I’ve quite some length of dark roots out, it just looked horrible. Hence, the decision to go black as I will not have to worry about my roots while growing out my hair. By going black, I don’t have to keep dying my hair too.

I must say I’m so not used to my black hair after 6 years of colored hair. But I guess I can grow used to it soon. Doesn’t look that bad and my hair looks so much healthier.
Do you think I look good with black hair?

XOXO,
Joyce.Forensia
