Birthday x KENJO


They say a lady who cuts her hair changes her life.
It's 29 June 2017, and I turn 23.
Changes are something I've gotten used to, and welcome very readily! In my line of work – you learn never to be overly-committed to one single look. Trends come and go – sure you might have a favourite style, or a go-to fall-back plan (for days when you just don’t have the time to plan an outfit or whatever). It’s the change – and the rate at which this occurs – which fuels my everyday.

That said, how else better to celebrate turning another year older… than making a change right? :D
The obvious choice was to visit the dream team at Kenjo Salon, and be surprised.

MID-POST ANNOUNCEMENT - Good news! Senior Stylist Justin who handles my hair has just emerged amongst the TOP 5 Qualifiers of the very finest hair stylists in the country!! What’s next for our champ, is a showcase on 15 August 2017, at Suntec City (Goldwell Colorzoom Challenge 2017). Justin's portfolio and creative cut and colour blew the judges away at prejudging, propelling him towards success!


So what was on the menu for my birthday hair, you might ask!
With a champ in the house, I definitely needed to refresh my colour with Justin’s newly-credited Champion colour! We kept it to a professional shade of natural brown – so nobody at work would be too shocked with the difference! But of course, treatment would be necessary given the daily washes I clock in with the exercise I do. Justin recommended a Olaplex treatment to condition the hair after the colour. This would also lock in all the goodness from the organic MUCOTA hair colour. Sounds good already doesn’t it? Locking in all that goodness ^^


We updated my bob with a little trim – I’m thinking of growing it out now, till maybe shoulder-length. Help me out here folks – I’m caught in a dilemma of growing out my tresses, or leaving it short and neat as is. Both looks appeal to me and I’m really undecided on this. If you’ve any thoughts – please drop me a line – I’d love to hear from you haha! Well, short hair, long hair – Champ, Justin has it all under control. I asked him what he suggested. Justin applied the MUCOTA hair treatment on my hair as we talked – well, short hair looks fresh, and is easily maintained – BUT longer hair allows for more styling, which hair stylists on jobs would appreciate. What do you think – longer hair that falls till my waist (aka circa. 2012 Kim) / Short bob (aka now) / Shoulder Length (aka 2015 Kim)?

BIG NEWS FOLKS - I'm finally done with my Invisalign journey! I've got perfect teeth now :')
I could go on about it - but let's save that for another time. Just thought I'd drop in just to say that I don't have to do the whole "nah I got to take off my aligners first before I can eat that" thing anymore. Lots to tell, but I'll save the whole story for another time.

Grad-night Party with my Cali Gals - celebrating 4 years of giggles 
May's been a pretty fruitful – especially now that school is over and all *YES! 4 years in uni, finally concludes my 16 years in our local education system! Every local student would be able to identify immediately with the trying times (read: dark years) we share – hectic schedules, late nights, occasionally sprinkled with happier giggle-filled moments. You could describe those 16 years juggling school, work, and frequently-changing priorities with one word – “busy”. Yet this, I know, has a very different description of the “busy” fully-adulted Singaporeans would be familiar with. Time is something which I think we learn to use better as we age. And I’d still like to believe, as I have through the years, that busy is always good :)

Work-wise, I've had a few interesting shoots this month – including one which involved a human-flatlay! Either way, while it’s fun to get dolled up with different hair and make up, and try looks I’d never otherwise know or think about trying, the end-effects do have an accumulative negative effect on my hair. You name it, my hair’s been through it – teased, Mohawk, crimped, curled, straightened, bleached, back-combed double over – sometimes a combination of the above, in one sitting! I like to drop by trusty Kenjo Salon to fix me when things get out of hand.



A month ago, we did the Tokyo Inkarami Treatment which had splendid results but this round, we switched things up by alternating with the good ol' Mucota Scena Plus treatment.

Throwback to when things got steamy!
What's more - I had Richard Branson's 'The Virgin Way' - for company, before walking out with a big blowout ;) 

MUCOTA Scena Plus Treatment
The Mucota Scena Plus treatment aims to invigorate your hair follicles and give you the dream hair you’ve always seen in the gloss. Be prepared for things to get steamy – powered by nano technology, this steam-gun goes all over your crowning glory for more effective absorption of the Mucota serum. The main benefit of this is that it doesn’t just soften everything for a silky finish – the technology restores and protects the hair by replacing nutrients our hair lacks. So imagine your dried hair stands, thirsty and just waiting to absorb all that Mucota goodness. The three steps go like this:
1.           Adel: Moisture
2.           Brava: Intensive Hair Repair
3.           Calore: Lustre Protection and Seal
(Nuff said, hey?) You can only imagine the immense happiness I had when I’d an early call-time the next day for a photoshoot; and the last thing I’d want was to present myself with lousy dried tired hair. This treatment definitely saved the day (read: the shoot). Can’t wait for you to read all about it – I’ll keep you posted <3
 
Hair-raising Experience? Justin didn't look too pleased - so I decided to cheer him up. (See next pic)
Now, no-BUNNY's got time for being anything but happy!
Here's a happy Super-Stylist Justin who'll fix you up.
In the meantime, don’t wait any longer – get in touch with Kenjo Salon, book an appointment with Senior Stylist Justin T and be the happy girl or boy you know you should be! Tell the good folks at Kenjo that we’re buddies and enjoy 15% off services.
