With my new haircut done at ‘le blanc by mashu‘ , I lost count of the number of times people have commented that I looked Japanese or misunderstood me as Japanese (feel so happy!!). haha.
I guess the way to go about it is really to find a good hair salon that is able to give one not just a hair cut that suits me but also a good hair treatment and colour.
Mashu in Japan has been around for some 26 years since 1989! And now they have open their overseas outfit named le blanc by mashu here in Singapore, located at the new atrium of Plaza Singapura.
Happy to visit my Japanese hair stylist Yuki san from the salon. Yuki san is one of the directors at le blanc by mashu, so she is really experienced and have over 10 years of experience.
Trusted her recommendation of a less layered cut and ash colour and totally super loved the final results.
This is the before look. very layered and thin, and flat with no volume. I find that my face looks fatter too. :P
After assessing my hair, letting me browse the Japanese hair style magazines, we discussed the cut and colour for the hair.
I can’t explain, but good hairdressers form a connection with their customers. And Yuki and I had that connection.
To give the hair more volume visually, Yuki recommended subtle colour highlights. She also shared that such hair highlights are also very popular in Japan.
Highlights and colours are done! Time to wash out the hair colour dyes and to do a Shiseido Hair treatment to ensure that the hair locks do not get too dry and maintain the softness even after the hair colouring process.
She blew dry my hair with slightly more curls so that after a while as the hair relaxed (gravity effects), what i have was a super natural curl and nice volume for my hair.
As I am writing this post, I am making my next appointment to see Yuki again for some hair treatment to maintain my locks :)
