Review of Hair Highlighting at Kenjo Salon on 19 Feb 2016

It had been at least ten years since I went for a hair colour or hair highlighting.  Was a bit apprehensive at first as it had been so long and I had long forgotten how I looked with coloured hair.

After a busy CNY celebration, it was time to make some changes.  I decided to do some changes to my hair but I didn't want to cut or perm it.  Hence next best option is to colour or highlight it... woohoo!

I decided on highlighting my hair instead of colouring the whole head of hair so that it is more subtle and when the hair grows out, it wouldn't look so obvious with a ring of black hair at the top.

Of course, my first choice of hair salon is Kenjo Salon, my Hair Sponsor, who is taking great care of my hair and hairstyling.

Look... the salon is nicely decorated with CNY decorations and flowers.

One last look of my black virgin hair before I proceeded with the hair colouring process.

Getting ready by wearing Kenjo Salon's gown to protect my clothes from the hair dyes later on.

I decided on a copper colour as this is 2016's hottest colour, as mentioned by a Her World online article but i decided on highlighting the hair so that it won't be too bright.  Joseph and Soo Bin recommended 8,42 8ROG for my hair and initially, I was extremely worried about the bright coppery colour.  But Joseph reassured me that it wouldn't be too obvious as I am doing highlighting of my hair instead of colouring the whole hair.

With his assurance and numerous years of experience, I felt at ease and Soo Bin proceeded to do her magic on my crowning glory.

Very carefully, she separated thin strands of hair before applying the hair colour on them.  She only did the front half portion of my hair as my hair is long, straight and all in one length.  I think this was better too as I didn't want the colour to be far too obvious since 2016 trend is to go naturally subtle with hair colours.

Kenjo Salon is using Davines range of hair colouring products and this is an awesome colour option for this who prefer ammonia-free colouring.  It is extremely gentle on the hair and scalp while achieving long lasting vibrant colours without limitations.  Extremely happy that my hair is well taken care of... yeah!

This was the colour chosen for my highlights... nice?

Time for the hair colour to settle in. Checking out other colours while waiting.

Soo Bin was so sweet to offer me some biscuits as it was past lunch hour and I haven't eaten anything yet.

After a specific time duration for the hair colour to settle in, we proceeded to wash the hair.

After that, it was time to condition the hair.

Soon Bin used this hair conditioning spray on my hair and comb it through before my hair was steamed to allow the goodness of the nutrients to be absorbed into my hair.

After the steaming process, the hair was washed again.

Another step to condition my hair before steaming it again.  I felt so loved.  Thanks Kenjo Salon for taking good care of my hair.

My hair is rinsed and I couldn't wait to see the final result.

My hair was blow dried by Soon Bin and her assistant.

Woohoo... I could see the final results now.  I just loved the subtleness of the highlights and I got a change of look without the colour being too overpowering.

Our regular routine... photo time with Soo Bin!

The colour is more obvious under sunlight as I didn't want something too drastic for my hair.

See the difference?  I am loving my new look!
