Sleek Sophistication

To get my hair looking super straight like this, I'd have to spend at least 6 hours in the salon. It's exhausting and tedious but the excited rush coursing through me following a fantastic hair makeover leaves me walking on air for days! Smiley

If I desire this perfect shade of brown and level of straightness after a full day of washing, snipping, straightening, colouring and treatment at the salon, I need to come up with at least RM700. It's a lot of money but if the end result is perfect; I have absolutely no qualms about forking up the amount.

Having said that, the most important requirement to get my locks looking this straight and perfect depends on more than just a hair straightener. I would require a professional understanding hairdresser to handle my locks. One that listens to what I want and does not simply recommend expensive products for my hair just to make a quick buck! Most importantly, he or she needs to totally grasp my meaning when I say BROWN (not RED) as my chosen hair colour and STRAIGHT (not semi-straight) as my desired result! Smiley

And that is my problem so far; I am still searching for the perfect hairdresser who is capable of turning my currently unglamorous hair into sleek sophistication! My old hairdresser has moved location so I am in need of a new guy. Any recommendations?

Love it, nice long straight shining hair, fiece red lagi. When I was in KL, I spent so much on my hair too. I really look good in curly hair and real short har! I have many pics of Lily with my faces, maybe one day I will me with many hair do.

Memang kat KL, kalau you buka Salon Rambut, boleh kaya tau. My favourite Hair Salon kat building sebelah Lot 10, forgotten the name, anyway, nama Salon tu if I'm not mistaken Hot Head, hope it is still there. One of the hairstylists, I believe
the owner himself is tall and handsome guy Chinese mixed with Philippino, just check it out, he is really good tau ....
;) :) 8-) :* :* :* By the way, your hair is coooool lah!

Lil,  February 01, 2010 3:08 PM

Hi beautiful! you look fabulous dearie. :* ;) :)

Life Ramblings,  February 02, 2010 3:45 PM

=-O =-O =-O wah 6 hours to get your hair done? i could not bear the thought of spending so looooong in the salon. time is so precious.

Life Ramblings,  February 02, 2010 3:48 PM

i haven't experienced doing rebonding, it does not suit some faces like mine. *DONT_KNOW*

Life Ramblings,  February 02, 2010 3:52 PM

but i envy girls with gorgeous straight hair. when it comes to changing my hairdo, my hubby still prefers the frizzy curly locks.

Life Ramblings,  February 02, 2010 3:54 PM

RM700 is absolutely costly but glad you're satisfied with the end result. 8-)

Life Ramblings,  February 02, 2010 3:55 PM

gotta go now sweetie. have a pleasant week. :)

Wilmaryad,  February 02, 2010 9:29 PM

Hey, Mariuca. I could always try ;)

Evan's Mom,  February 03, 2010 1:14 AM

A full hair treatment costs a lot, doesn't it? But it's so worth it if we like the result :)
I also wouldn't mind paying that much if they could make my hair straight like yours. Love it, they did a good job straightening it.

Evan's Mom,  February 03, 2010 1:15 AM

Which reminds me I need to straighten my hair too so I don't have to flat iron it every morning. :(
It's been a year since the last treatment.

Evan's Mom,  February 03, 2010 1:16 AM

I always been fussy at salon. I would ask (and take note) about the brand, bleach, color swatches and how they gonna apply them on my hair. So on the next treatment I could give them a complete history of my hair ;)

Sometimes it helps to get the desired color if they know whatever things already applied on our hair.
