My First Fashion Event as a Model

I know this may come as a surprise to some of you, I too am surprised myself that I actually agreed to take up this assignment. It is going to be a challenge indeed and those who know me well, would know that I love challenges. I like accepting challenges and giving my best to accomplish them because the sense of achievement is something which money can never buy.

I have been rather busy and packed for these 2 to 3 weeks as I have taken up extra assignments on my own (more on that soon!) and one of them is my first fashion event which I will be modelling for. I have attended a few fashion events before but as part of the audience and not as a model.

Before agreeing to participate for this event, I actually took some time to consider carefully because modelling wasn’t really my thang. It gives me a bad impression being a model, but yeah I guess I was just being biased. I usually shun assignments that depends heavily on beauty (oh the irony of being a beauty blogger?) because I never want to be looked upon as a bimbo. I guess I’ve gotta change my mentality on that now because taking up this modelling assignment actually allows me to learn several things which I believe would benefit me. Am trying to be positive here, haha. I will be blogging about the post-event filled with pretty pictures, hopefully! 😛

So yes, if you would like to see me strut officially for the very first time, please feel free to make it for the event!

New funky colours for my hair done at Headlines Hairdressing Salon!

I’ve been wanting to get funky colours for my hair for quite some time now but didn’t have the courage to go ahead due to work requirements. I’m working in corporate office (where the offices of big bosses are) as the company’s Legal Counsel. Surely such a position deters one from having funky hair?

I regretted so much that I didn’t get it done while I still could, when I was still a student back then.

But nevertheless, it’s the festive season and #YOLO (you only live once), so I was thinking, heck! Why not? If not now, then when?

Would be ridiculous if I have to have funky hair when I was older!

So yes, I’ve decided to head down to my sponsor salon, Headlines Hairdressing 🙂

Charles, my hair stylist and the Creative Director, did inform me beforehand that pink is not as lasting as other colours such as purple, but I knew what I wanted and went ahead with pink anyway. 🙂

The pink hair dye is from Goldwell Elumen 🙂

Goldwell® Elumen®
Goldwell® Elumen® Color is a hair color that illuminates the hair inside out to achieve unique and creative results as well as stunning colors that clients request in your salon every day.
Its unique technology makes Elumen Color a physical color, which means that it works entirely without oxidising but still achieves spectacular and long-lasting color results.

-Sharp, fresh brilliant colors
-Exceptional shine
-Incredible durability
-Amazing, healthy looking hair

What is so amazing when dyeing hair with Headlines, especially with Charles is that every penny spent is well-worth! Just take a look at the colours! Previous pictures above only captured a single colour tone but look at how different it is when light rays are captured and reflected off them!
I love how the shade is not just one plain boring colour tone but contains of at least 2 funky and vibrant undertones as well!

You can see that other than fuchsia, it actually glimmers with orangey undertone as well! That’s like paying 2 colours for the price of 1! Totally worth it! 😀
