Hello everyone! I disappeared for sooo long, 2 months.. yeah. I've been so busy with my internship and personal stuff so I haven't been able to update this space. But as you can see, I've revamped it in the hopes of it being able to motivate me to blog :)
I've always wanted a hair sponsor as I love and admire girls with beautiful hair! Especially Miranda Kerr because her hair is sooo gorgeous. So, when I was approached by Salon De Choix, I was over the moon! I finally have a hair sponsor - hello beautiful hairrrr ;)
After reading up about Salon De Choix, I found out that they are a very professional hair salon located in the heart of Orchard Road! Salon De Choix is founded by Sharon Wu, a renowned stylist with more than 20 years of experience. Salon De Choix offers professional hair services and treatment with carefully selected Keratase and Shu Uemura products that will help propel your experience to a new level.
My first visit to Salon De Choix was on 31st August! I would like to thank Salon De Choix for being so patient with me :)
Look at how beautiful the entrance is!? It was the first image that popped up when I googled Salon De Choix!!! (Picture credits to owner)
I was greeted with a 'menu' once I was sitted. Hehe, I chose to have ice water because I didn't see that there was milo :(
I was given strawberry biscuits as well. I don't know about you, but I love biscuits and the strawberry biscuits were so awesome!!
A quick look at my BEFORE hair. Super dry, frizzy, uneven.. bleaghhhh! I was actually looking forward to getting my hair coloured but my stylist Chester suggested that before colouring, he wanted to help me soft rebond my fringe as it was really frizzy, and also curl my hair with big loose wavy curls.
And so we begin!! Chester started off by giving me a hair wash! I loveeee hair washes at salons. It feels like heaven la!! And I don't know why but the shampoo and conditioners that they used on my hair smelled pretty damn awesome. I did not manage to take a picture of my hair wash as I was busy relaxing and enjoying my hair massage :p
After washing my hair, Chester proceeded on to do the soft rebonding for my fringe. Soft rebonding is different from normal rebonding as it will not make your hair look super stiff like a broomstick. Instead, like the name suggests, it leaves your hair looking super soft, smooth and straight! Chester wanted to soft rebond my fringe because my fringe was really frizzy and I was in the process of growing it out.
I had to wait for probably around 10-20 minutes for the product to set in. After that, he washed my fringe and then proceeded on to soft rebond it. This is the end product:
Super soft, sleek, smooth and straight fringe!!! Hooray!! It's been 2 months and my fringe is still so so smooth.. Hehe. Really happy with how it turned out. My fringe looks much longer as well because it is straighter.
After my fringe was done, Chester proceeded on to curling my hair. I requested for big loose waves because I prefer natural-looking waves. If you want curls like mine, I do suggest that you ask for big waves instead of small curls :)
In case you were wondering, the white cotton thingy at the back is to protect your scalp front the heat, so that you won't get burned from the rollers. Haha, I actually really enjoyed sitting there with the curlers in my head.. hahahaha. I had to sit there for around 30-45 minutes :) Chester and his assistant came around every 10-15 minutes or so to check on my hair and ensure that the heat was on.
After that, it was hair washing time again. Wash wash wash, I think I had the privilege to have my hair washed and head massaged by Chester for more than 3 times.. muhahaha! After doing the curls, I thought I was done for the day but noooo, Chester told me that he was going to help me do a Keratase treatment for dry and chemically treated hair! Woohoooooo~~~
But before that, he applied some after treatment to my fringe to make sure that it will stay straight!
Salon De Choix has a wide variety of treatments that you can choose from! Chester chose the Strengthening Ritual for me as I had weakened and dry hair that had just been chemically treated.
Ready for the end result...??? ;)
HELLO SILKY SMOOTH HAIR WITH LOOSE WAVY CURLSSSSS!
I know the colour looks a little bit awful with the roots growing and all, but take that aside and look at how beautiful the curls turned out!!! I actually had trouble trying to style it the first 3 days by myself, but with Chester and Sharon's help, they taught me how to do it myself and I am loving how it turned out :D
Here's a pic of myself and my stylist Chester!
