Hair by: Chez Vous
To be honest, I’ve always wanted to try ashy hair but never had the guts to (what if I end up looking like an unglamorous grandma?). After all, trends do not suit every one, and I totally did not trust my own sense of style haha!
So when Chez Vous announced their new treatment #FakeAsh, I was super excited to try it out! Here’s what I love about it!
Getting The Right Colour
Before they start working their magic on your hair, they hold up colours to see how it frames your face and enhance your facial features. It’s amazing that certain colours (like blue, for me) brings out my dark eye-circles and make my face look a little sunken, while other colours make my skin glowy and nice! This is a really important step as wrong colours can bring out your flaws more, while suitable colours can even correct or mask certain flaws.
Even though I totally trust the experts with colour choices, I felt really assured that they took this step to explain which colours suit me. They shared with me honestly that I don’t really suit ashy colours, but still did their best to find a shade which would work (because I wasn’t ready to give up on my ash hair dreams lol).
So what’s different about #FakeAsh? Usually ash hair colours require a few rounds of pre-lightening & bleaching, which could be quite damaging to your hair, especially if you are like me and highlight your hair often. #FakeAsh however, uses only one round of pre-lightening and combines a few tones of hair colours to achieve the shade you want.
This means that you have to take extra care of your hair colour (e.g. using colour depositing shampoo, blow-drying your hair) to ensure that the shade stays on as long as possible, as the ashy colours do fade fast.
I love it! It was my very first time getting this hair tone and I was super super happy! I’d gotten lots of compliments too *insert modest look*.
