Hey loves! Hope you guys are doing well!
Recently, CLASSIC by Taiwah kindly extended an invitation out for me to test out their hair services. If you guys know me irl, you would know that I am a bleach & hair dye addict. I dye my hair almost every 2 months and I love playing with colours. I would probably go up on the hit TV series "My Strange Addiction" because bleaching my hair gives me so much joy. LOL I promise I am not a weirdo.
Looking back, I have gone through a fair share of hair processing and probably tried every colour in the spectrum of a rainbow... yes and that includes yellow. I know, what was I thinking right?!
CLASSIC (@classicbytaiwah) offers the ultimate one-stop beauty experience catering from hair, face to body. Being strategically located in the heart of our CBD, you can now escape and de-stress from your daily routine and be refreshed after a pampering session.

When you first enter the salon, you will be greeted by a welcoming reception with the retail/beauty area on the left and the hair salon on the right. The chic interior furnishings really gives the salon an edge! I absolutely adore the play of black trims against the the contrasting wood panels.
The hairdressing area is super spacious with an 8 seater capacity and a barbering corner too. Try to spot half of me in the photo above, the giant mirrors are bomb!!!
Was promptly seated upon arrival and had a cup of water & some magazines to pass the time. The stylist who helped me out with my hair is William (@imwilliamchoong) and he is a legit master of hair colouring. If you are into fun crazy colours like me, he's the one you should look for! He suggested ash blonde for me and I went with it.
As you can see above, my hair before is really dull and brassy with too much yellow undertones. Travelling really took a toll on my tresses. I am super thankful to be in good hands and get my hair retouched by the Classic team.
Started off with a quick hair wash on the comfortable arm chair. Had a super soft blankie over me as well but since the weather in SG is so terribly hot, by the second wash I just left it aside. Who else can't deal with the weather lately?
I had about an inch of black roots so they had to bleach my roots first before proceeding to the body of the hair. Let me just say that this is honestly the most comfortable bleaching process I have ever went through. If you are familiar with bleach, you will know the itch and in some worst cases, pain involved when it comes to bleaching your roots. I once had a super piercing headache after bleaching my hair 6 times in a row. That's why a good salon is extremely important when it comes to colour processing.
William was extremely careful and patient while he was applying the bleach. The bleach did not touch my scalp at all therefore I felt zero itch or pain at all. The whole bleaching process felt like nothing and it was definitely a first for me.
Washed off the bleach after 20 minutes and bam, I have YELLOW hair. Literally looked like Goku from Dragon Ball and I can't believe I actually walked on the streets with this hair colour before. Well, we all make funny decisions when we were younger. #NORAGRATS
After drying my hair, William and another stylist applied the ash coloured dye to my hair. The two of them were so funny, it really made time pass faster. The entire process to get my hair from brassy yellow to gorgeous ash blonde took only 3.5 hours which is super short considering all the bleach work, washing and blow drying that has to be done.
The immediate end result? Gorgeous shiny ash blonde locks that I am absolutely in love with! William used the Olaplex hair treatment which is probably one of the best treatments out in the market. I have always been an avid fan of the Mucota hair treatment (still am) but I think I am loving Olaplex a little more! My hair instantly feels nourished, hydrated and shiny after the Olaplex treatment. The best thing about the Olaplex treatment is that its effect lasts even after many washes. Say goodbye to tangles while washing your hair!
The hair colour was slightly darker than expected at first but after a couple of washes, it faded out into the perfect ash blonde. I received tons of compliments for this hair colour & I couldn't be happier with it!
So that concludes my ash blonde hair colour journey & I hope you guys enjoyed it as much as I did. I had a lot of fun chatting with the CLASSIC team and I felt really welcomed throughout the entire experience. They have a beauty/facial department as well and the ladies there were extremely nice and friendly. Thank you CLASSIC by Taiwah, William & Elgena for having me over and giving my hair such a fab makeover!
