After that crazy string of weird hair colours that I had earlier last year, I decided to let my hair fallow for the last half od 2012. Now, I’m ready to take on even crazier colours!
I have newfound respect for hairstylists that are so dedicated in their line of work. I may be complaining about having to sit in the salon for hours but it’s really Fern and Peter who have been working tirelessly on my hair.
It was bleached once but the stubborn pigments from my previous hair colour refused to come off (Protip: Don’t dye your hair black to darken it, it makes the colour harder to strip next time. Opt for dark brown instead) so I had to bleach my hair twice.
I have to say that I enjoyed being blonde for all of 20 minutes while I cam-whored on the photobooth app on my Macbook Air. The bleach did not kill my hair! Look at how smooth it is!
I discussed with Fern about the colours that I would like and to be REALLY REALLY honest, I had little clue what I wanted prior to entering the salon. I leaned towards having pink hair cause I noticed that my complexion always seemed a little brighter with it.
Being the expert, Fern took my suggestions into account but advised me against some of them due to the condition of my hair and went off to mix the colours of the dye.
The neon pink scared me a little when it was applied, I may have resisted running out and shrieking but these people are professionals and celebrities like Rui en (she has her own little corner in Hairloom) have left their hair in the hands of the hairstylists at Hairloom.
The colour came out GREAT. I couldn’t be happier about the pink. I don’t know if anyone else is as anal about pink as I am but since my skin is of a warm tone, I don’t take to cool pinks very well. This pink it so pretty much what I had envisioned in my head.
As far as hair trends go, the ombre dip-dye thing has been overdone and according to Peter, the trend for 2013 is what he refers to as the 3D layering of hair colours. My hair is pink with a dusty ash purple peeking through.
Here’s the final outcome!
