Ever since I did my hair at Apgujeong Hair Studio, I have been receiving tons of compliments on the chic ombre blonde that my stylist did for me. Apgujeong Hair Studio, as the name suggests, is a Korean themed hair salon whereby you can request for authentic Korean stylists to take care of your tresses. I was so stoked to receive an invitation to try out their services! As usual, I have opted for colour+cut because we all know your home girl is obsessed with hair colouring!
Fast expanding, the successful Apgujeong Hair Studio has 5 outlets situated all around Singapore with 2 more new locations opening soon. I am literally over the moon as they have an outlet at Vivo City which is just 5 minutes away from my place.
The outlet that I went to was the one at Tiong Bahru Plaza as I had a super last minute urgent request to get my hair done the day after I touched down in Singapore. The Apgujeong Team kindly accommodated as best as they could to my needs and I was extremely pleased with their great service. Ended up being a blessing in disguise because I managed to explore the newly renovated Tiong Bahru Plaza that is filled with lots of eateries! (^__^)
Arrived and was promptly guided to my seat at a cosy corner. The lovely team offered a hot cuppa coffee (love!) and some biscuits to go along. Notice something that we all love? FREE WIFI! HAHA! Now you can happily watch all your dramas while getting your tresses pampered!
My hair was taken care by a senior Korean stylist, Harry, for the day. Harry specialises in the latest women hair trends as well as creative colouring. In fact, he was the one who suggested ombre which I happily went along. Being an authentic Korean, English is not his forte. However, even with a language barrier, Harry was able to communicate and execute his ideas well.
If you are afraid of the language barrier between you and the Korean stylists, Apgujeong Hair Studios also have their own in-house stylists that are fluent in both English and Mandarin. Fret not, based on my personal experience, you are definitely in good hands.
Hair procedures done:
1. Ombre Bleaching at the ends of hair (20 mins)
2. Wash & tone into a perfect milky blonde
3. Colouring + basic Mucota Treatment
After 3 hours of hardwork.... *drum rolls*
TADAAAA! The perfect silky smooth ombre blonde! Isn't it gorgeous?
Having had an intense history of hair colouring, this was honestly the first time that I am completely satisfied with the end result. It definitely takes a lot of skill to tone my reddish tone blonde into something that is much ashier with cooler undertones. Still remembered that there were two ladies that saw the end result of my hair & immediately requested for Harry to do theirs too! Haha not bad right?!
Also, I have never seen anyone snip off my hair with such precision. Usually, stylists that cut my hair will always go for the layering scissors, be it whether I want layers cut in or not. Harry on the other hand literally took his scissors and snip off my hair with no hesitation. This is what I would like to call confidence and professionalism. To be honest, I gave him the full green light to cut whatever he wants & honestly, I have no regrets. My hair now is much healthier with lesser "fried" ends! No idea how he did it either but there was no difference in my hair length?! *magic*
I am officially in LOVE with Apgujeong Hair Studios and I cannot be happier with my new locks! So obsessed with the trendy ombre blonde right now, what do you guys think? Anyway, pictured above is the senior Korean stylist Harry, who had full control of the outcome of my hair. Cute right? Haha but too bad guys he is happily married! On the bright side, you can still get your hair done by him and look fabulous afterwards! ;)
