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! 😀



I’m all ready for this Christmas season with my new hair! What about you?

Pamper your hair with Headlines Hairdressing!

Sponsored Advertorial

If you have been following me on my Facebook page, Twitter or Instagram, you would have known that I have dyed my hair to red!

I got bored of the usual brown and opted for red this time round.

A little brief info on Headlines Hairdressing :

Gary Lee

Gary founded Headlines Hairdressing with the intent to provide this industry with a salon that catered to the delicate needs of clients using state-of-the-art techniques. Besides being a hairstylist, Gary is also an educator who has attained great renown in Singapore,  Here, the client is listened to, patiently guided, educated and most importantly genuinely befriended.

It is a known fact that with the constant dyeing and redyeing, alot of damages are actually harming your hair through these chemical treatments. It is difficult to maintain your locks by yourself without professional help, even with regular application of hair treatments bought from off-shelves counters.

As extracted from Headlines Hairdressing‘s website, one of their many goals is actually empowered with a motto of “Walking through the doors, each client will be empowered with the ability to unlock and sustain the natural beauty and radiance hidden within. ”

I couldn’t agree more. 🙂

Truth be told, it is not how stylish your hair looks, whether you have straightened it, permed/curled, dyed in whatever pretty colours, that rates our hair appearance. All these would not be achieved in perfection if your hair is not healthy.

You can have pretty long curls dyed in milky brown, but without radiance, your hair would look ‘dead’ and limp.

As much as your skin needs to stay healthy, the same goes for your hair too.

And so apart from nutrition consumption internally, external maintenance is equally important too.

And for that, we should leave it to the hands of the professionals and I trust Headlines Hairdressing to do just that – the ability to unlock and sustain the natural beauty and radiance hidden within my hair 🙂

I think it’s one of the brighter colours I have ever dyed and wasn’t quite used to it… but after receiving compliments about me hair, with even one of them being a MacDonald’s staff approaching me to ask for the colour of the dye, I must say that Charles really did a good job 🙂

I have also taken the plunge to switch my hair parting as I have not done so before (tried a few times and couldn’t get used to it) and it’s important to change your hair parting to prevent receding hair line and balding 😦

There were the products which Charles used on my hair :




Protection of Cuticle

These 3 main elements of CMC reinforce CMC layer which consists of hydrophilic δ(delta) layer and lipophilic β(beta) layer, and improve damaged cuticle, control light diffuse reflection, and create lustrous hair base.

Superlipidure (phospholipid polymer nanosphere) makes 7 layered lamellar liquid crystal structure and pseudo-cuticle to protect the hair, and regenerate hydrophobic surface to make hair smooth, silky, and lustrous.



Emollient CMC Shampoo (Lithe)


This Shampoo contains a lot of cleansing ingredients which are scalp and hair-friendly.

  • CMC Amino element works on the hair, and while maintaining hair condition, remove dirt from hair and scalp.

  • It gives smooth finishing that does not affect hair volume

  • Bubble with soft feeling

  • Refreshing apple peach fragrance

What is CMC? Cell layer compound exists outside and inside our hair, and hair cells stick together so that it is not easy to peel off (noteasy-to-damage effect) and maintain moisture, and prevent it from leaving (to prevent dryness and maintain hair softness). Damaged hair means the so-called CMC substance had left the hair, and many gaps develop inside the hair, resulting in hair winding, which is the cause of loose and dry hair.



Moisture Base for Treatment

Adel contains 4 kinds of ceramides, cholesterol and phytosphingosine included in natural ceramide to recreate same structure of hair’s intercellular lipid, and improves the repair function.

Maltose-based Millet jelly (starch syrup element) and ceramide 1・2・3・6Ⅱ improves hair condition, Adel keeps necessary moisture inside damaged hair, and creates best hair condition for treatment. With its internal permeation typed moisture holding elements, make hair soft and moist before next treatment.



Hair Repair

Brava contains matrix keratin and fibril keratin which make up hair’s cortex as repair components for severe damage, and amino acid which is CMC component for mild damage. Also, with mixing silk PPT which has cuticle repairing effect and pearl proteins (hydrolyzed conchiolin) handles various damages.

Contains amphiphilic reactive ceramide -like substance and 18 MEA-like active agent to penetrate ingredients of “Adel” and “Brava” into hair with the these affinity. Also, penetrated reactive ceramide acts by binding to net-like structure to prevent repair component from flowing, then set it inside hair.

The hair dye which I used is from Matrix products and the colour code name is ‘So Red’.

MATRIX, the leading professional hair care and hair color company in the United States, is part of L’Oreal USA’s Professional Products Division.

Matrix was founded in 1980 by the American husband and wife hairdressing team, Arnie and Sydell Miller. The Millers wanted to provide hairdressers with a comprehensive range of products that would help them grow their businesses and provide the means to take full advantage of their talent and creativity.
