Treat and Trim at Salon De Choix

It’s back to Salon De Choix for some hair pampering and this time I decided not to do any colouring as the previous colours are still holding up well. The fringe part faded a little but it faded nicely so I’m leaving it as it is for now.

So I settled for treatments and a trim to maintain the shape of my bob style. 🙂

Before the usual pampering hair mask treatment with steaming, I get to enjoy a scalp treatment first! The pores on my scalp are being opened up by combing so that it can be cleanse properly.

Massaging the minty treatment essence into the scalp. This part is just shiok. Your scalp is getting treated and you’re getting a head massage too!

Check out the shape of my bob hair without any styling. Short hair is addictive I tell you. Though I miss my long hair, I still want to keep this length for awhile more before going back to long hair.

Here’s my hair after all the awesome treatments and trim! I got Ricky to trim my fringe shorter as it’s poking in my eyes. Look how smooth my hair is!

Violet Copper Crush by Salon De Chiox

It’s time for a pampering hair session at Salon De Choix again! The red side ombre I had have already faded so I wanted to dye it a different darker colour due to my new job.20140303-204901.jpg

After discussing with Ricky, we decided to cover my side ombre with a dark violet and give me additional copper highlights for more texture.20140303-204912.jpg

It’s highly recommended to do a colour treatment after colouring your hair to lock in the color and treats the hair for it to be smooth and healthy. The Keratase treatments is really very good!Photo 11-12-13 1 52 41 pm

Here’s a look at the colours when the hair is wet.20140303-204929.jpg

The violet is actually underneath so it is like a peekaboo style. Can easily cover up during working hours. I’ve also trimmed my hair a little, adding a little more layers in my hair.20140303-204941.jpg

Here’s a side view after my hair is all blown and styled. You can see the layers and how the violet is actually hidden.20140303-204958.jpg

Back view of my hair, you can see how the copper highlights give life to the hair.20140303-204949.jpg

Here’s the side view under natural sunlight again. I love how the different colours give my hair sort of a textured look. The violet and copper blends in very well, who would have thought this two colours look so good together.20140303-205007.jpg

From top view. I like the flexibility of my hair that I can hide the wild colours or show it just by changing the parting. One hair many looks! This kind of hairstyle is also perfect for people like me who has a full time day job and yet loves colours in my hair!20140303-205014.jpg

Thanks Ricky for the awesome hair colour and cut!20140303-205022.jpg

Red Side Ombre for CNY by Salon De Choix

CNY is approaching and other than new clothes, new shoes, we need a new look for our hair too! So it’s back to my trusted Salon De Choix for a new look!



As usual, I gave my stylist the freedom to do whatever he wants with my hair, that is unless his idea is too over but so far so good. 😛 So after deciding on the look, we get started with lightening parts of the hair. Unlike previous times where we just bleach the sides, we started from the fringe back.



So, CNY is around the corner so we opted for RED! Red is a lucky color for new year! Personally I love red hair, I can somehow wear it well with my fair skin tone. 😛



We also cut the back of the bob a little shorter then usual with the sides longer so it forms a gradient.



There’s many ways to wear this hair. Just show a little of the red by the side.



Sweep the fringe to the side more to show a two toned fringe.



Put some of the hair behind the ear to show more of the red.



Or just put all the brown hair behind the ear showing the full glory of the red.



Here’s how the side looks like. A nice gradient and you can see the red peeking out.



I prefer the subtle look with just the right amount of red showing through. But I also loved how I can go wild with the red. 😛



If you have not get your hair done for CNY, make an appointment and head down to Salon De Choix now! They will be closed from 30th Jan to 5th Feb so be quick!

Bob Style by Salon De Choix

So I went down to Salon De Choix last week to do something about my hair. The color have faded quite badly and ends are super dry!! This time round Ricky proposed something different and being the adventurous me, I went ahead with it.

We decided to chopped half more than half of my current hair length and give it a darker coat of color to make it look more fresh and healthy.

It is always recommended to do a hair treatment whenever you do any chemical treatments to your hair. This time round, I did the color boosting treatment that will not only keep the color radiant but also moisturized my hair for that healthy shiny look.

After the treatment, it’s time to cut and shape the hair into the desired style. I would say the haircut is the most difficult as the stylist have to ensure that both sides are balanced.

Here’s my hair after cutting and blowing!! I definitely looked like I cut some years off my age too! It had been years since I had such a short do and it’s definitely very refreshing! I like it!

Before I forget, here’s my pink highlights!! I can hide it better with my current hair do but if I want to show it, I just have to style my hair a little differently. What I like about my short hair is that I can play with the styling!

Raspberry Swirls by Salon De Choix

It’s another visit to Salon De Choix one week ago, and they never disappoints! I’m loving my new hair color which I named the raspberry swirls. :p

My previous visit was before I head to GC and after two months, my previous red hair have faded away and my bleached blonde ends surfaced again. But I must say its pretty nice too. Also I’ve out grown my bangs. Bangs are cute but high maintenance, and I’m pretty lazy I’ve to admit.


I’ve got a new stylist Ricky to take care of my tresses. After a short discussion and some suggestions from him, he immediately get down to getting the colors on. I just mentioned that I wanted to keep the red tones and Ricky suggested red as highlights and a dark mauve base that will have purple tones to it under sunlight. As for my bleached ends, we decided on a bright violet that will compliment the highlight and base.


This is actually my first time getting highlights so I’m pretty amused during the process. My stylist and his assistant Ivy have to pick out the right amount of hair from each layer then add on the color. Quite a lot of work I must say! I said I was amused cause of the foils. Haha.


Look at the amount of foil in my hair! Haha. They colored my ends first, then highlights and lastly the base color.


It’s a must have to follow up with a treatment after a color job. If not no matter how mice the colors are, it won’t look good. This time round, I’ve Moroccan hair oil added to my hair treatment mask.


This is my hair after treatment and washing! You can try to spy the colors! Most exciting part during a new dye job is the drying process!


And check out my new hair color!! So pretty right?! I also got a cut to re shape my hair with some layers and switched my fringe from bangs to side.


Here’s the colors under sunlight! I posted this on Instagram and got pretty good comments! Hee.


Highlight of the hair is the violet ends!! Too pretty I can’t believe it’s my hair! Haha!


Many thanks to Ricky for the awesome color! Do look for him if you want a similar style to mine!


I could not resist but to change into a different outfit when I’m home and take photos of the new hair!


My current favorite photo. The hair color makes my skin fairer as its of a darker tone. Plus it’s not too loud and gave me a sophisticated feel. 🙂
