New Hairstyle by Salon De Choix

This is my third time to Salon De Choix, and this time I’m getting a new hair color as my previous colored ends have very much faded away after 2 months plus nearly 3 months.

Before: Black hair roots, faded ends. I would say the color stay quite well, as you can see there still can be purple and green seen.

I actually like how it faded into this ashy tone though. But it’s time for fresh color!!

This time round, I asked for a brighter base color as I find that dark brown base might be too dull and I personally prefer a brighter color. A brighter base color also meant a darker color tone for the ends. Hence, I’m somehow reversing the tones of my hair colors.

My stylist Elein suggested a copper base with a dark purple blue ends. For the dark purple blue, she used a chemical free colorant instead of the usual color dye to minimize any damage to the bleached hair.

That’s Elein applying the colorant to my hair section by section ensuring that it’s evenly coated on.

And of course, I did hair treatment using Kerastase! I swear by this treatment! Friends have been commenting why is my bleached and colored hair smoother then the non bleached base. This is the reason!

I’m using the treatment specially for colored hair, this will help the color to last longer!

Did I mentioned that Salon De Choix provides a wide range of beverages and also biscuits for all customers? Enjoy a cup of tea or coffee while getting your hair pampered!

 

When I was making my way to the salon, I was thinking maybe it’s time that I try something new and cut bangs. The last I had bangs was back in primary school which is at least 10 years ago. LOL.

I make a good scare with my non-existent fringe.

So while I was contemplating to ask Elein about cutting fringe while comfortably seated at the salon, she suggested bangs to me before I even say anything!! It’s like she can read my mind! How awesome!

And there we go, snipping off quite a substantial length for the fringe.

Ta-dah! Bangs!! Honestly, though it had been one week since I had the cut, I’m still no used to seeing me with bangs!

Elein proceeded to curl my hair and now you can see the colors better! I swear, this was 98% close to what I’ve always wanted secretly. Salon De Choix gives you what you want without you asking!!!!!!!

Of course, we must always apply serum for the hair for additional protection!

Elein used the Kerastase Elixir Ultime for color treated hair on my hair, providing shine and protection!

After photo! Look at how pretty and healthy my hair is after a pampering session! Fresh colors and treatment done!

And not forgetting my new hair cut! I think I really like how I look with bangs. Who say people with a wide face can’t cut bangs? You just need to go for a rounded cut rather then a straight cut!

Here’s a side view shot that I took standing under the light. Tell me, ain’t my new hair colors gorgeous! I love it to the max!!

Thanks Elein! For giving me a new hairstyle that suits me so much! I can attempt the KAWAII style with my new hair cut now!! I looked so much younger too! 😛

Hair Treatment at Salon De Choix

Went to Salon De Choix few days back to do treatment!! Do you know that it’s recommended to do treatment at a proper salon once a month? It’s extremely important to do so to keep your hair healthy and smooth! Especially if you have crazy hair colors like mine!

This time round, I did a treatment mainly to treat dry hair with the color booster to protect my hair color. My hair was a little dry before I did my bleach and color, and it’s definitely more prone to drying out. Hence, it’s important to treat it regularly. But I must say, I only notice dryness at the ends of my bleached parts, and it’s not frizzy dry but just slightly dry. The previous treatment I did prevent it to be super dry.

Here’s the booster to be mixed into the hair serum and it’s to protect my hair color, allowing to shine still.

Got to leave on the serum for about 15 to 20 minutes before applying the mask, and that’s another 10 to 15 minutes. I was put under the mist during the treatment. It helps the hair to absorbs the treatment.

Can you see the mist?

Here’s my hair washed and partially blow dry, ready to be styled!

Here’s the results! Nice natural looking spiral curls!

I’m loving my hair more! It’s super smooth after the treatment! Brown parts are like super silky smooth while the colored parts are healthy looking and not dry!

I really love my green/purple hair which have gotten so many good comments! And Jerry said to touch up the colors next month! So excited!

Hair Makeover at Salon De Choix

Hi all! I went for a hair makeover at Salon De Choix few days ago! Spent a total of 8 hours in the salon and wow, it’s all worth it as I really love the end results. Thing is, I think the chairs there are very comfortable, cause I don’t really feel stiff or anything though I sat there for 8 hours straight. 😛

Here’s some interior photos of the salon. It’s very classy and comfortable.

They also had a private area for VIPS/Celebrities. Cool eh?

Look at the lovely wall mural, so chic and girly! 🙂

Alright, now let me bring your through my hair makeover! First, show you all a photo of my hair before anything is done to it. Hair is dry, ends are dry and it’s like multi colored. There’s like dark roots, dark brown, light brown and reddish brown.

Jerry, my stylist asked me what I wanted and I told him I wanted purple hair. 🙂 He suggested to add some green along with the purple and I quite like the idea. So I’m going to have Dip Dye Violet and Neon Green hair with a Matte Brown base. Jerry then proceeded to cut my hair. Chopping off the ends and went on to layer it. A lot of my hair was cut off but as I’ve really thick hair, it’s not that bad.

The next step is to bleach the lower segment of my hair. First time bleaching my hair! Was pretty anxious about the results. But I know that to get purple hair which I’ve always wanted, bleaching is a must.

Got this UFO looking thingy over my hair to heat up the hair and speed up the bleaching process.

And here’s after washing off the bleach and blown dry. I can has blonde hair. It’s actually should be bleached another round to make it lighter but my stylist was worried that my hair could not take it, so no more bleaching.

Then it’s the coloring step! My base color was done first, but brown is nothing special to talk about so no photos. 😛 But look, purple dye is being applied to my hair!

And we also have green dye applied! I know it looks blue and it is blue, but it’s a green dye.

Then we have to wait for some time for the color to set before rinsing. So while waiting, I had cup noodles, biscuits and tea! The cup noodles is definitely a surprise! No worries about being hungry while you are spending a long time in the salon! How thoughtful of them!

By the time I was done with my noodles, and sipping my tea, it’s time to wash the hair!

Special thing about this chair is that it’s a massage chair! I had to lay there for quite some time my hair had to be rinse in sections but it’s super nice to lay down there enjoying the hair wash and massage.

Here’s a sneak peak of the colors! Looks good right?!

Next up is treatment time! The treatment that I’m going to try is by Kerastase. They have different type of treatments for different hair conditions.

So there’s this chart where we first analyse my hair condition. My hair is dry, quite strong and very thick and have done loads of coloring before.

My stylist decided to do full color treatment for me as I’ve done bright colors. So it’s better to cater to the color as we want the color to last long and shine.

Hair wrapped up in plastic for the treatment. Pardon my funny expression. Haha.

Here’s a closer look at the color after rinsing and drying! So pretty I cannot take it!

My stylist tonged my hair and this is the end results! Mad nice right? We have the Violet and the Green blended together so nicely!

Let’s take a look at a side by side comparison photo. Look at the big difference! I can has purple hair now!

My stylist then straighten my hair again for a different look. And it’s quite different for me as I’ve natural waves and I hardly had straight hair on me.

Close up at the colors! Look how nice the violet and green blended together. Once again, this style is called Dip Dye in Violet and Neon Green with Matte Brown base. It might be a little different from the dip dye you see out there (those that you can see a literal line between the base and color), the way that my stylist does it is more natural and the color blends better together as seen. XD

Let me spam more photos of my new hair ok? Here’s my hair after 2 days and 1 wash.

I was out for an event and dinner and got many compliments on my hair! It just so nice, of course people will compliment! Haha! And I realized my hair is not really dry though I bleached it, I did not spam treatment either, just the usual amount.

Last shot of my hair, a close up!
