So I was in search of a new hair saloon because I was in need of a change and also, I wanted to try out something new with my hair ;
been stuck with the same hairstyle & color for more than 6 months now. I was getting bored, period.
Then I came across reviews of a saloon called The Met, Kuala Lumpur. Located in the heart of KL, Parkroyal Hotel to be exact, I was so tempted to try it out!
Quoted : "The Met has two teams to cater to color and cutting services because they believe in providing the best cut and color results. Their strength is professional foiling work for those who love highlights because they know what type of weaves and tones to give to different hair textures. Cutting is also their forte because 90% of their hairdressers were trained by Toni&Guy Hairdressing, a UK based salon. They are well known for giving a long lasting and low maintenance haircuts and they have learnt from them." - which was very true! You'll see the results after!
Called up and made my appointment and popped by The Met, Kuala Lumpur.
It was easy to spot The Met, Kuala Lumpur, as soon as you turned into Parkroyal's main entrance, there it is, on the same row!
As I walked in, I noticed the posters around, look what I spotted :
Famous faces mhmm!
So as I sat down, I was assisted by my hair stylist and hair color expert, Teng.
They were super friendly and very informative!
After examining my hair, it was set that I have to chop off a few EXTRA inches to achieve this new style making it look more 'livelier' and also it would be easier to maintain. Double yay!
And so the process started with a simple rinse, soak and also hair mask for my scalp. Bear in mind The Met only uses Redken products and mmm did all the shampoos and conditioner smelled uber yummy heehee.
*left to soak in all the goodness and also deep cleansing for my scalp/hair!*
Next was where Teng's (p/s: Teng won L’Oreal Colour Trophy Malaysia 2004 Central Zone) job came in!
The first thing she asked me was, whether I had any restrictions, i.e:- work and such, thats deff said no. I was in a DIRE need of a change, hence I replied, "Do what you think would look good on me! (:" I left the results in her hands whooots!
So here goes the process, first step was the highlights, a few main sections were highlighted, for a 3D effect.
To what turned out like this :
Wait there's more! Then different sections, the lower ends and the sides were left untouched while the rest AND the highlights were covered by ONE color.
I look so alien-ish *facepalm*
95% done, it was time for some minor touch ups and then styling!
like my new hairdo? Cause I sure do!
what a change! something fresh and new for me.
Couldnt wait to show off the new 'do, I headed out the night itself :
What say you?
