Achieving PEACH ROSE HAIR @ Black Hair Salon

Color of the MonthPeachy Rose
Done by Raymond, Director from Black Hair Salon

Hello guys~ As mentioned in one of my old post during Feb, my contract with my previous hair sponsor has came to an end. The stylist at one of the outlets did a pretty bad job on my last trip there and I ended up with a head full of different tones of blonde on different parts of my head... 

I tried to salvage the situation by purchasing some coloured dye online to even the colours out but I failed badly. Though I didn't turn out as nice as I thought it would, It wasn't that bad either


However, as my roots started to grow and the lilac started to fade, my hair became really unsightly and I felt really messy about it. However, due to my hectic schedule and upcoming exams, I didn't had time to liaise with a salon to fix my hair!

Thankfully, I got the opportunity to work with Black Hair Salon after hearing lots of raving reviews about them online!


My assigned stylist and also director of the salon was Raymond (no pics of him today :p will take one on my next trip), I explained to him my current hair condition and my expected color/style of the day. 

He thoroughly assessed my hair condition and informed me that my hair had to go shorter than it already is due to the damage done by the numerous bleaching services I've did in the past. I had no problems with going for a shorter look as I'm a guy afterall and our hair grows fast! We then discussed the colour we would be going for, and to be honest, after seeing a whole lot of people sporting the 'rose gold' hair color trend, I was tempted to give it a go! 


However, after discussion with Raymond, he decided that the rose gold color is too common nowadays so he decided to do the peachy rose color that Joy from Red Velvet sported recently! :D 


The entire process took roughly 5 hours, which includes 2 bleaching sessions, 1 colouring session and 2 haircut sessions~ The first haircut is to trim down the hair and the second haircut was to ensure that the damaged ends would be snipped off, leaving only healthy and newer hair!


After hours on the chair, this is the end results!

Throughout my entire "life" of blogging, I've never met someone as professional and friendly like Raymond. Kid me not, he takes his profession really seriously and does everything perfectly. (he also looks really young despite his age, trust me!! I'll show you guys a photo next time!)

He took time and effort to personally bleach my roots and ensured that at the end of the day, my hair color was EVEN throughout my head and my hair was still healthy and strong! He even warned me that the hair color wouldn't stay for long and that I could always go for a touch up that week despite his packed schedule! He is definitely THE ONE stylist you must try at least once throughout your lifetime as I'm definitely sure that he'll produce awesome results for you guys!

LED Teeth Whitening with Mirage Aesthetics!

An awesome smile has always been known to boost the self confidence and esteem of individuals since a longg longgg time ago. However, due to our daily food intake, our teeth starts to turn yellow (no thanks tea/coffee!).

For me, as I'm not a very teeth-smiley kinda guy and I prefer to smile without my teeth showing, the "presentation" of my teeth has never really bothered me. However, ever since I got my braces removed last year, I've become more conscious of my teeth especially since I've paid a whole lot of money for it! So why not take good care of it!

Since we're on the topic of teeth whitening, one good way to whiten your teeth effectively is to go for LED Teeth Whitening treatments!

I've been wanting to go for a teeth whitening session prior to cny but I fell sick and was unable to make an appointment with Mirage Aesthetics, whom actually contacted me last year for a collaboration while I was still in Korea. My appointment has been delayed for > 1month and even though I was still down with an illness, I went ahead with my treatment on 2 weeks back as I do not want to further postpone the appointment. Thankfully, the staff who was making arrangements for my appointments were really patient and understanding and I'm really grateful!


I really love the design and ambiance of the whole place. It has this very forest-y feel that I LOVEE and the whole place was so spack and clean.

I'm sure most of you have seen many pictures of people doing their teeth whitening procedures before in the past so i'll give that a miss. But here are some of the points that I truly love about Mirage Aesthetics

1) THE SERVICE IS SUPERB

The staff were extremely attentive and friendly, they greet you with a smile and offers you a choice of beverage with a warm towel to clean yourself up prior to the consultation process.

2) Service is consistent

They were friendly and attentive throughout the whole procedure, even checking in on me every 15-20 minutes during the whitening process while ensuring that I'm fine with the treatment

3) Results can be seen within one treatment

BEFORE

AFTER

It's pretty obvious that the LED whitening treatment DOES work and I'm sure you guys will love it like I do! My teeth got 4 shades lighter now :D  (pardon my unshaved beard roots)

Overall, I enjoyed my treatment with Mirage Aesthetics and I've to give a big thumbs up for their service and consistency. The only flaw I could find was the inflexibility of their machine, which made me have to sit in a position which which a little uncomfortable (just a little, I promise). Other than that, I would highly recommend Mirage Aesthetics if you're keen to give teeth whitening a try.

Also do remember not to take any colored food such as curry, smoke and do anything that can affect your teeth

If you're interested in getting your teeth whitened too, they are having a special offer for first timers for their LED Teeth Whitening procedure. It's now at only $180 (U.P $480)

Facial Session with Donna Beauty

I've been an avid fan of skincare and beauty products since the day I grew my first pimple at the age of 15. Ever since then, I've been researching and reading up on ways to keep my skin clear from acne and also to make sure that it's in its tip top condition from time to time.

However, what I've realized is that no matter how much skincare you apply, how expensive it is, or how good it is for your face, everyone will still be prone to breakouts in ways that does not necessarily be caused by your skincare - such as the environment you live in, your diet, stress factor etc.

Thus, our skin will still get clogged from time to time, unless you've awesome genetics that helps your hormones to stay in check (in which I don't). I'll have to search for alternatives to unclog these pores!

One of the effective methods I've found is through regular facials!

Since August has been a pretty rough month for me (other than the stress factor), there's the ongoing haze which has pretty much affected my complexion. Thus, I'm really grateful to be approached by Donna Beauty to try out their services. (Note: This is not a paid post but a review)


A little on Donna Beauty;
  • been around for 7 years 
  • currently 2 outlets - IMM outlet mall ,jurong east #02-29 (tel:65636880) & The Star Vista , Bouna Vista #B1-17 ( tel: 66944257)
  • Provide wide range of wellness services , facial / massage / slimming / wellness / spa



I paid a visit to Donna Beauty at the IMM outlet. As I'm not a foreigner/newb when it comes to facials, I was expecting the pretty standard procedures when it comes to facials - you know.. the basic cleansing, facial steaming, extractions and mask procedures.



 To my surprise, Donna Beauty incorporates what feels like a medispa experience with wellness and facial all together... like a 3 in 1 experience!! Their equipment are up to date technology which helps to improve their client's skin needs and massages were done throughout the facial treatment which ensures that youuuu (the client/customer) feels relaxed throughout the entire experience

I was first led into a room where I was consulted by one of the consultants there. Through the process, they accessed my current skin condition and also skin type (which is hyper sensitive combination skin). Thus, they proposed for me to try out their hyluronic acid facial treatment which help to boost up skin hydrating levels, calms and soothes the skin and end the session with a mint mask to help detoxify my skin!

What made the entire session so good is the fact that they've incorporated face and head massages into the whole procedure!!! You can't help but feel overwhelmingly pampered and relaxed with them :) Needless to say, I fell asleep halfway through the procedure. But from what I remember, the steps done were these:

- Cleansing and Exfoliation
- Sonic Cleansing to open up the pores 
(medispa concept instead of the usual face steaming)
- Manual Extractions
- Face soothing massage (I fell asleep halfway through)
- Not sure what's done to my face throughout my slumber
- Some cold machine thingy used to massage my face (woke up at the end of this)
- Mint mask 

All in all, I was surprised by the experience as I did not expected it to be this relaxing and good!! And as they say, a picture speaks a thousand words. This is what my face looks like before/after, and also pics taken a few days later with only tinted sunblock :) 

 Face is visibly less dull, pores are smaller too and my skin is overall better! ;)
