Hi, I am Agent S, a Sales and Marketing Executive by day and a DJ under the moniker Durio by night!
Appearance is therefore very important to me. I normally go for a hair cut to maintain my hairstyle and dye my hair during the festive season.
Right now, it's looking a little plain and lacklustre, so I thought it was the perfect time for a change.
In Singapore, the stylist I usually go to is Sham from Be Salon. Among all the stylists I've tried, Sham always manages to give me exactly what I want without needing me to explain too much. It is no wonder why he is SO popular back when he was at his previous salons until now. The only problem I face with him is usually scheduling: he is so popular that it is difficult to grab a slot with him.
Hence, when I managed to chope him this year, I was super happy. When Sham asked if I mind sharing my experience on Beauty Undercover, I was only too happy to oblige.
This is the first time I've stepped into Be Salon at Millenia Walk. It looks really classy and very spacious with quite a bit of space for each customer.
Yep. this is Sham. He may be wearing jacket and look very formal most of the time but has a really warm personality inside.
While the consultation is always professional and thorough, he always incorporates some design elements that are customized to who I am and what I love. I shared that I'm looking for a design with a touch of festive but not over the top, so he suggested a cut to lighten the back and vibrant colour highlights for that festive touch.
Sounds good to me, so let's go!
Sham started by giving me a quick trim to even out my bob and give it a nice shape.
He cut the bottom layers while it was wet to ensure precision.
Then, he let down the top layers and cut them to perfect the shape.
He dried my hair to check out how it will look on a normal basis.
Before giving me some final snips.
Finally! It is time to start on the colour.
We decided on a dark base with a pop of pink / red to match the Year of the Pig while giving me a fun pop of colour, so we had to start by bleaching my hair.
Bleach was applied to different sections of my hair to help the pink shine through.
Then, the rest of my hair was dyed brown.
Soon enough, the bleach was almost done.
I had to sit around and wait for a while, but Sham made sure to keep checking in.
Time for the bleached portions to be revealed:
Getting there, but not light enough - so Sham had to touch up with some more bleach.
A little while more...
And it's finally time to rinse off!
My hair was dried again so we could get started with the colour.
Bam! A bright pop of pink.
A dash of purple was added too.
Different tones of pink to help blend the look.
Soon enough, it was time for the reveal.
All the different foils came off to show the various colours of my hair.
The colour section was so well thought out to allow me to play around with the party or OL look.
That's not the end, though. I had a treatment applied to ensure that my hair was in a healthy condition.
Next, mist was sprayed all over my head to help the treatment penetrate the cuticles.
The last stretch.
And the final wash.
Here's a quick sneak peek!
Sham STILL wanted to make my hair even more perfect, so he took out his scissors once again.
I really love how playful this look is, while the cut and darker tones still help it look professional.
But when I flip it the other way... it's a party!
Reflects my day vs night personality pretty well I think!
It was really busy at Be Salon when I was there but I must say that I really enjoyed the experience. On top of Sham's warm service as per usual, all the staff here have been really friendly and attentive, offering me beverages and snacks whenever I need them.
Most importantly though, the colour looks awesome! Simply perfect for my dual personality in the morning vs night.
Although the colour is really vibrant, the colour barely faded thanks to my use of colour shampoo, making it perfect for CNY.
Definitely a salon I would unequivocally recommend, especially for colours!
