LONG Wearing
Keep the colors and won't fade for hours.

Here's the swatches result with and without flash. The colors are intense and the extra glossy/watery effect.

Christmas, Party or Prom Hairdo at HairCo, The Gardens Mall

Two more days left and it's Christmas! I am sure everyone of you having countless Christmas date or night out and even start wondering any nice place for a proper hairdo. Even though I am a major in bridal make up and hairdo, yet I have a tough time styling my own hair as I can't see my hair from the back.

So, instead of doing on my own, I gave a pass to Nick, during my very first visit at HairCo, The Gardens Mall last Friday.
I was stunned when I was passing by the shop. The black walls and the modern French windows make the shop even outstanding among the other shops. The modern French windows are always my favorite as they makes the overall interior look much elegant and magnificent, I even think of having all the French windows with pure white/black walls in my dream house by the seaside. Taking a sip of rose tea and enjoying the great bay view through the windows.WHAT A LIFE.

The salon is also well-decorated with all the Christmas ornaments. Christmas tree at the waiting room with all the wrapped gifts underneath. Besides the decoration, there's a shelf displaying all the Shiseido products. Yup, they used Shiseido products for all their services as it's a brand from Japan and they are meant for Asians' hair type.

The crystal lighting decorations at the center adding more of the wonderful Christmas holiday atmosphere, like gigantic snow balls.

As you can see, the place is really clean and neat. Extreme comfortable environment while enjoying the hair session there.

I was really impressed that they even have an in-built drinks counter that serves their customers with all kind of beverages like fresh juices, sparkling juices, tea and wine as well!

OhMaGawd, aren't they too awesome?? Serving the customers with the best drinks and so do the services, treating them like a VIP. It's definitely the most gratifying hair session.

They even have a VIP room for guests or customers who want most of the private and personal space or moment. They can even have their hair wash in the VIP room.

Hairdo session:
After being amused by the interior, I was lead to sit and got introduce to my hairstylist of the day, Nick.
I have the perfect scalp massage while I was off for hair wash. The scalp massage was so details and relaxing that I almost fell asleep. Then, I have my hair being blown dry by two hair stylists haha! Cool.

Here's how my frizzy hair looked like when they were dried up. But they looked much smoother than how they usually do.

The party hairdo started when Nick tong-ed my hair with Instyle (explain further below), that made the hair curls much wavy and natural.

Without using any hair products like mousse and hairspray, but only Bobbi pins / U pins, my hair was nicely done! I did look a bit like Korean here huh? =P

With all the precise twists and curls, that looks a bit like flower buds, they added in a much graceful sense on me. Yet the overall looking was still casual and a bit country-side kind of feeling as there were few strands of hair falling from the side, as like the wind blown and also the natural hair waves.

This is Instyle, a curling tong with combination of comb (smoothen our hair while curling) and ceramic heater (will not damage our hair) with two sizes available. Just imagine the usual curling tong you use at home, it's just a steel/iron with heated up to 160 Celsius. It definitely damage our hair eventually. But Instyle don't. HairCo is retailing Instyle at RM800.

All the hair stylists there are super friendly as I really spent an amazing moment having conversation with Nick and even HairCo's founder, Raymond. Thanks Nick for the whole hairdo session, being so tolerance and patience to me.
I can feel myself being pampered like a Queen indeed, served with wine and being told ways to take care of my own hair. It's a really cozy environment and definitely a delightful or luxurious hairdo experience, first ever experience. You feel heart-warming in HairCo - a lifestyle hair salon, having a different experience which worth the pay. It's not about getting your hair done, but enjoying your hair getting done. You will never feel yourself staying in a salon, or even like a fool, afraid of being judged by the hairstylist.

Raymond is sucha humorous guy and of course with his edgy hair color. He told us that there's no certainty for any hairstyle that suits your face shape or own self. 

'Cut your hair, instead of your face' - Raymond
Shouldn't having a hair style that cover your face as it's too puffy. You wear the hair, instead of the wearing you. 

 'Change' - Raymond 
The best way to know yourself better is change. Put on all kind of make up, hair style or even clothes and get the different you as you may realize that the different side of you will be revealed by changing.

'Hair will grow' - Raymond
Do not afraid chopping off your damaged hair because hair will grow eventually. 

HairCo is having a promotion which just right up for our coming Christmas! RM98 for wash+ blow+ party updo! Make an appointment now!

Earlier Christmas Gift from Ollie Jewellery x GIVEAWAY [Closed]

It's December! Hanging around all the shopping malls and all of them are so well-decorated with Christmas trees and of course a Christmas theme! Even though it's not snowing in Malaysia yet we can still experience some of the temporary snowing moment, feeling the cold like other countries do, breathing hardly as you will inhale all the cold air that will freeze your nostrils!

Besides jingle-ing by all the Christmas songs, singing the Christmas Carols, running a rain deer or even sharing a Christmas couple dinner set with your love one, of course the most anticipating part of the Christmas will be ------- Getting a Christmas Gift!

So, I was so excited that I have received an earlier Christmas gift from Ollie!

Can't wait to unwrap the gift!
Oh My God! It's an elegant Teardrop Pendant which suits every special occasions. It's definitely my favorite right now as it reached my doorstep just in time because the coming 2015, I will be attending countless wedding dinner and somehow I may be one of the bridesmaid!

The Teardrop pendant is made of 925 sterling silver with Rhodium plating which makes the necklace to have more shine and to be more durable as it will resist scratches and tarnish. Their jewellery is also nickel free and hypoallergenic (to cause fewer allergic reaction).

An imported necklace that comes with brilliant refined round CZs (Cubic Zirconia) which is the highest grade stones, it makes this teardrop pendant extraordinary classic yet charming.

Let's see how I pair the exquisite necklace with my outfit!

Do note that Rhodium plating on the sterling silver jewelry will eventually wear off with daily wear and eventually will reveal the original colour of silver, which is bright silver. However the rate of how quickly it will wear off depends on how often you wear the jewellery. They will give you a small card on how to care for sterling silver jewellery and as long as you follow the guide, your silver jewellery will be tarnish free.    

Besides the elegant bracelet, here comes an Elegant Pearl Bracelet in Grey! Perfectly grace!
A faux pearl bracelet that comes with two different designs on the side and in two tone colors, which kinda resemble the dual characteristics in me. This is really a simple yet expressive piece. 
It is exclusively designed and handmade with high polish finish. Meanwhile, you can choose your preference bracelet length!

At the front view, it comes with a dragonfly toggle clasp. Do you know that Dragonfly jewelry carries a unique meaning?
It represents strength and courage, overcoming failures and fighting for something you want.
It represents renewal and power, after facing all the obstacles or challenges in life.

This side comes with triple strands of mini pearls in light grey color. It gives me a sense of youth and sweet looking.

This side comes with a series of larger pearls in darker grey tone. Whereby it's much mature and intense.

Besides pendant and bracelets, Ollie Jewellery is also selling rings and earrings, some of them even come in set! All the accessories and jeweleries are absolutely adorable and I really have a tough time while making decision.

Tips on taking care your jewellery:
  • Clean your jewellery regularly with soft 100% cotton cloth or even a mixture of mild detergent and little water.
  • Usage of tooth paste or tooth brush for cleaning is not recommended instead using fine and soft brush to remove dirt behind stones.
  • Store jewellery in dry and air-tight area, like sealed bag or jewellery box.
  • Store your jewellery separately to prevent any friction or rubbing action against other jewellery.
  • Remove jewellery when doing household tasks or heavy duty activities.
  • Avoid jewellery in contact with water.

That's all.
