Salon Vim S/S12: Snipped off my locks!


can i just say that i’m superly in love with the latest look that Salon Vim has done for me? 

everyone knows that i’ve been trying to grow my hair long forever, so for the past year of visits to Salon Vim, i’ve had a perm, different hair styles like bangs, side swept fringe, all kinds of colors/highlights done, but i never dared to snip off anything more than three inches!

in fact, i haven’t cut my hair short for the past 4 years, and i thought that it was time to go for a change this visit… even wanted to cut a short bob, but i KNOW i will confirm regret it in a few months time when i get tired of the bob and it growing at a snail’s pace. so despite how much i wanted a drastic change, i kind of chickened out in the end, HAHA. forget all that shit about no guts no glory, la. i want the glory, but i ain’t got no guts!

so i just decided to leave my hair in the trusty hair of Stephanie, my super hairstylist…


a good 6″ off my hair, which took care of most of the curls from the previous perm! i LOVE the darker hair color and hidden highlights at the sides of my hair! such a refreshing change from my previous long curls which were starting to look very dry and heavy. YAY!!!!!! SUPER LOVE IT! 

booked my appointment at Salon Vim with Eils baybeh who also wanted to get her hair done 😀

and that’s my awesomeballz hairstylist Stephanie who always always always makes me look and feel like a million bucks! 

John picking a hair color for Eils!

for Salon Vim’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection, there’s a few key color techniques showcased, and i decided on this “hair band” color/highlight technique, which will have my hair colored in a dark base, with two strips of hidden highlights at the sides of my head! (you can see it quite obviously in the first picture because i changed my hair part to show off those highlights!)

but first, pre-color treatment for my hair! Inner Link, by Loreal Professional!


and on goes the dye.. you can see how my hair looks very yellowish already with my dark roots showing! so ugly! D: Steph chose a dark brown,  Majirel by Loreal Professionel for my base color, and used Loreal Professionnel’s newest DIA LIGHT special treatment color to give me ashy blond highlights and keep my locks soft and silky!

at this point of time, i usually end up falling asleep. haha! need to wait for the color to set in, before washing it off and following up with a 3-step hair treatment!

the three products used for the 3-step hair treatment. specially customized to lock in my hair color as well as to help repair the damaged hair! the Fiberceutic Filling Serum helps to strengthen the hair, followed by Powderdose Color, which will balance the pH level of the hair after the coloring process! Last but not least, the Fiberceutic Hair Mask that helps to nourish my hair as well!


all wrapped up in order for my hair to be most effectively steamed while doing treatment 😀 

and after the end of a good 5 hours session….. Eils and I with super duper chio hair!!! yay!! i cannot stand it, her eyes are damn big. my eyes look like ._. next to Eils!


i now have gorgeous healthy looking hair that feels uber soft and nourished!!! how it looks like with my usual parting: the highlighted streaks are hidden underneath and peek out at the ends! damn coooool!

also got some products to bring home so that i can keep my hair in good condition. The Sensi Balance Shampoo that will help keep my scalp healthy and the Absolut Repair Serum for glossy locks!

i have honestly never walked out from Salon Vim without being absolutely satisfied and pleased with my hair! so in love with it!!! definitely one of my favorite looks so far. everyone has complimented me on the amazing new hair and even YZ loves it! 😀

remember that you can quote my name YINA for 10% off all hair services at Salon Vim! 🙂

lovely denim floral shorts from F21 that has purple flowers on a grey base! and yellow crochet flats from H&M! 

they look awesome together, so i wore them out the very next day 😛

paired with a simple nude colored top and my burgundy Satchel! 

just a simple outfit for casual days. yay! love all the florals and lace. i hope they don’t go out of trend too soon!
