Sorry for the lack of updates, I’ve have recently returned from a 6-week stay in Australia where I’d surgery to fix my dysplastic hip. Today I’ll blogging about my latest hairdo, which I got done before the surgery.
I wanted hair that brightens my mood, something that I’ll definitely appreciate during the difficult, painful period after the operation. Something that will help make me look better when I’m pale and dishevelled after days of lying in bed. And boy did the gorgeous tresses cheer me up each time I look in the mirror!
Here’s my hair before Avant Garde’s (previously known as Georgina’s) staff worked their magic.
For a radiant complexion, Georgina recommended red highlights. I was concerned about having too much red in the hair, as I prefer a natural look over a bold mane. Hence Georgina proposed a mixture of 20% red and 80% brown. Sounds good to me!
It took 2 pairs of nimble hands an hour to work through my super thick hair. I absolutely love their meticulous work. Pictures later in this blog post show how balanced and abundant the highlights are, throughout the entire head.
To complete the look, low lights were added to conceal the old highlights I did last September.
Japanese Fiole NP 3.1 treatment was applied to my locks to fully hydrate and strengthen them. To maximise penetration and benefits, the salon uses an O3 machine. Ozone hair therapy causes peptones to be formed on each hair shaft, forming a protective layer over each strand (like our Ozone layer). I prefer the O3 machine over the traditional hair steamer treatment as the latter makes me feel hot and uncomfortable.
Viola! Highlights that are woven throughout the hair without harsh lines of contrast.
I adore how reds spice up the tresses, exuding a trendy vibe.
The final stylish, multi-dimensional look under indoor lighting. So pretty, right?
I love the light-catching effect under natural light, it’s as though the hair has been kissed by the sun.
Do allow 2.5 hours for highlights and treatment, there’re heaps of magazines to keep you occupied. Even better, get a mani and pedi done at the same time! The luxurious space and papering service at Avant Garde will surely leave an indelible impression.
Much love to Georgina for the luscious locks
