What a coincidence!
Evalee happen to be here at Heritage Hair as well and she's getting a new bleach.
Look out for her new hairstyle on http://www.evaleelx.com.
Right now I'm steaming my hair for 15 minutes.
The hair treatment I'm doing today consists of 2 hair-steaming process and a 4-step hair product application with a hair product from Japan.
The treatment will take about 2 hours.
It's the 2nd week of my bleached highlights - Just TWO bright streaks on both sides of my face: Purple covering the top half of each highlight and fades to red. These colours are what we typically known as 'funky colours'.
In my opinion, curls make funky-coloured highlights more appealing.
The strands of curls allows more colours to be conveniently exposed.
Since I only did 2 strands of highlights, the curls actually made them even more obvious than when my hair is straight.
Having funky hair colours is a popular trend in Singapore now -
Purple, pink, red, turquoise, rainbow, green, orange etc.
The colours which my friends have done are all over my Instagram and Facebook.
They bring so much vibrance and personality to each individual's lifestyle and look.
THEY LOOK GOOD.
Having experienced peacock-coloured, red and purple highlights and blue hair (I ever blogged about the different hairstyles I had as I grew up, view images HERE), I have 4 lifestyle tips for you about having funky colours (some were advised and others invented based on my own personal experience haha)
Tip no 1. Avoid wearing light-coloured clothing
Especially when your hair is wet.
The colours come off when in contact with water and they will stain your apparel.
I'm keeping my fingers cross that your hairstylist will tell you about this.
Play safe by wearing dark coloured tops or place a towel on your shoulders when you hair is still wet to prevent your tops from being stained.
Tip No 2. Lay a towel over your pillow before u sleep
Tip 1 says it'll stain your clothing, what makes you think your pillow cases and blankets will be spared?
Tip No 3. Consult your hairstylist about the after effects of your colours.
Thanks Kenn for your great advice, THANK YOU THANK YOU.
The different colours on your hair will fade to blonde eventually if you bleach them, AT DIFFERENT SPEEDS.
My initially intention was to do purple at the top, red at the bottom on one side and reverse the colours on the other. In my case, Kenn was totally honest with me. "The purple is going to fade much faster than the red highlight and your hair will eventually look awkward with red and sudden blonde at the bottom. May I suggest that we do the same on both sides, with the red at the bottom instead?"
I'm really thankful I heeded his advice.
My purple has been replaced by ash grey now, eventually fading to mahogany red.
What if your hairstylist is on leave?
What if you are so busy that you have to leave your hair as it is for a few months?
All the what ifs….
So seek your hairstylist for advice about the after effects of the colours on your hair.
Tip no 4. Avoid sleeping on boyfriend's chest!
This one was EPIC.
MinutemanSG woke up with half of his chest stained.
I thought I had unintentionally bruised him (bash him up in my sleep or something).
GOT THE BIGGEST SHOCK IN MY LIFE.
Profusely apologised and we laughed when we realised what had happened.
So be careful with your partner's apparel as well.
If you're perspiring with your funky colours, avoid leaning your head against him and his light-coloured clothes.

Finally decided to chop off my severely damaged, frizzy and tangled hair.
Kenn gave me a V-cut at the back, slanted bangs and highlights on two sides of my face.
He bleached my highlights before he gave them a red and purple combination.
I like how cosy Heritage Hair felt.
The professionals working are so friendly and jovial.
Sandra, Joyce and Kenn: thank you for making my day!
I think I lost at least 2KG from the hair he managed to snip off!
Told you that straight hair will make the highlights look very subtle.
