Your appearance determines your first impression.
Do you know that your hair colour plays a part in your overall outfit?
Earlier on last month, we had the privilege of having a treat over at Black Hair Salon (BHS) for a pampering hair colouring and treatment session. BHS started out in 2000 and is conveniently located near Bugis MRT. They pride itself to be family-like which makes you feel at home.
We decided to send one of our team members whose hair was still brownish and silky straight (think 22 years of not doing anything to your hair except for cutting…) She took a bold step by bleaching, colouring, and doing an Olaplex treatment which took a whopping 6 hours.
Pearlyn turns a year older every 4th May each year, a must-have for her everyday will be her cup of coffee/ tea. She loves wearing different styles of clothes as long as it makes her feel comfortable. Here’s the process of what went through at BHS:
Anthony, the director of BHS, and I have decided to do a balayage ash blonde colour and an Olaplex treatment. I wanted a colour that doesn’t scream loud and suits most of my clothes.
He started with mild bleaching to certain areas of my hair followed by a rinse off. We were off to colouring by late afternoon. The colours were brownish blonde and ash brown respectively. The last step was the Olaplex treatment- this is to strengthen and repair damaged hair during the process of bleaching and colouring.Anthony proceeds to give my hair an extra bounce by curling and styling it!To wrap things up, BHS provided me with 3 complimentary aftercare- mainly shampoo, conditioner, and a treatment product. These products helps in colour retention and vibrancy for colour-treated hair. I’ve been using it and can safety say that my bleached hair looks and feels almost the same as my original hair!
Here are 3 reasons to visit BHS:
1. They are flexible.
BHS listens. Unlike other salons who just follow the instructions given by customers, BHS listens, advice, and reconmmend how each individual hairstyle suits their face and affect their overall appearance.I wanted to try the perming treatment initially instead of the colouring treatment because we all know bleaching damages the hair more to a certain extend.
However, Anthony (the director of BHS) advised that perming will show no to little effect as my hair is super straight. In addition, to maintain the curls, I have to use a hair curler everyday before leaving the house. Hence, both of us decided to opt for a hair colouring treatment.
Since it was also my first time doing a hair treatment, Anthony suggested something more natural and basic- Brownish blonde with a tinge of ash brown. And boy, I didn’t regret at all.
2. Professional & Patient.
Being an extremely fickle-minded person, Anthony would first allow us to choose our desired colour and style then proceeds to explain and justify the most suitable type of style for each customer’s hair. He also pointed out the reasons behind each steps required patiently despite having other customers to attend to.
With Anthony around, we won’t never have to worry. He would also recommend addition treatments to repair and strengthen damaged hair. In this case, Anthony suggested the Olaplex treatment. You can find out how it works here.
3. They are like family.
Stepping into BHS for the first (and longest time), the staff there treats you sincerely like family. The whole atmosphere was just so vibrant and bubbly! You don’t need to worry about being hungry because the staff there would offer to help you buy your lunch or provide you with drinks.
I observed how regular customers speak like old friends to the stylist and there’s this sense of warmth that makes me feel like home.
Thank you once again BHS for sponsoring and spoiling us with your hair treatments and products, I’ll definitely be back again. x
