My new HAIR Shade

I have been so troubled by my distressed hair for the past weeks. It had lost its color shine & so frizzy dry. I finally find time to visit the salon. I asked for a high (red) & lowlight (purple) color on my hair (see picture of the color), followed by doing a redken hair treatment & trim. Spend near to 4 hrs there & S$300 poorer now.... opppsssss. Hope hubs din read this. He will faint.... LOL :)

Sorry Amos, mummy used up 6 tins of your milk powder for that look *sob*



64 Hugs for Amos & Zac:

Trinity : Thanks. I love the glowing shades too. I duno how long the shine will last. I hope it will go a longer way, else I have to go back to do a re-touch of color through shampoo which the stylist told me.

Blur Ting said...

It looks really shinny and glossy now! It suits you. Recently I coloured my hair in a darker shade (I'm not as adventurous as you are) and had highlights. I think it's the same red as yours.

You look good!

Bobby said...

$300.00 for a haircut and colouring? Wow...that is a lot to spend!!!!!!!!! The most I have ever spent (of course I'm a guy) is $10.00...ha ha!

It does look great...you guys must be rich to spend that much on hair:)

FL Sam said...

J@n!ce said...

Lili : Its really costly over here esp on long hair like mine. Wow, you mum owns a beauty parlour. That's so cool, you get to enjoy those treatments for free now. No wonder you keep such a long wavy hair.... how envy :)


Janice Ng

J@n!ce said...

Blur Ting : I like to try on loud colors like those you see. Esp so now since I'm not working. I'm even more adventurous... haha :D

Janice Ng

WaterLearner said...

Wow... Superstar hot red colour with fantastic highlight!! I am jealous!! Then again.. At Redken? $300 is steep leh. I have never spent that kind of money on hair. But you look good in this colour.

Blessings!

J@n!ce said...

Shana : Thanks, I love the color too :)

Janice Ng

J@n!ce said...

Karen : To be frank, this is not the highest amount I spent on hair at one go. I've ever done a 5 colors before for my ROM. Let me dig out the photo & show to you at Throwback. It cost me S$400+ for just that :)

Nick Phillips said...

Janice, S$300 for highlights?! I almost fainted la ... LOL! I don't spend a cent over RM10.00 for my hair and even then I think it's still too expensive ... LOL!

kegler747 said...

Hi Janice! Your hair soothes you very well and it also matches your outfit :) I took away about 5 years of your age, hahaha. I'm not kidding :)

by the way, the earthquake didn't do any damage. No reported casualties. Thanks for your concern.

J@n!ce said...

Nick : Its actually about S$180 for highlights & S$120 for the redken treatments. Bear in mind that these are already after 30% discount. If not, the price is soaring high. :)


Janice Ng

J@n!ce said...

Carlo : Glad to hear that yesterday's earthquake din cause any harm. Must be the color of the outfit that makes me look younger & vibrant. Thanks, you are always making me flying around....LOL :)

Emila Yusof said...

Hi Janice! Cool color combination! I love it! I wish I could color my hair orange and green!!! (I'm Cyndi Lauper's fan you know!) Don't feel so bad about it, it's only once in a while we get to do things for ourselves. Cheers Janice!

mr fong said...

Oh ya, i just realized u look very straight haired in the photos now ;)

Mb guys never think of spending on hair, considering it falls off when u hit old age ;p

J@n!ce said...

Emila : Thanks. I hope it will last me a long time so that the money will be well spent :)

Amel's Realm said...

NICE colour, Janice!!! ;-D Yeah, I also hate it when the hair gets dry. :-(((( I never dared dye my hair for fear that it'd get dry he he he he...maybe someday. Who knows? ;-D
