I really really love the outcome of my hair colour. I previously coloured my hair with my usual hairdresser in OU but one thing led to another and well, let's just say, I wasn't really happy with the end result. It looked a bit off and did not suit my skin colour at all! So I waited for a few weeks before I went for another hair colouring session.
A good friend of mine, Sarah, went to do her hair there and I felt like I needed a change of scenery hahaha so I decided to just colour my hair at Number 76. I mean, might as well, right? Seeing how Raya is just 'round the corner, I wanted to change my hair.
I decided to just go back to being dark haired. Being adventurous with my hair has never been in my favour so I wanted to just play safe.
Consultation with Amy literally took what? 3 minutes? I just told her I wanted to go dark and with a tinge of an ash brown undertone. She didn't personally colour my hair for me but it didn't really matter, to be honest. It's just hair colouring and I assume the requirements to work in a well-known salon would be quite high so I just entrusted my hair to them. Berserah kinda thing. Hahaha
I really did not feel the 2 hours go by. It was so sekejap! Maybe I had a book to accompany me but reallly, it was very easy and quick and I didn't have to go through any sort of steamer or that heater thing that circles your head about a hundred times over. My hair was just wet with dye and just that. Nothing else.
Shortly after, I just followed the girl to wash my hair and that was it.
A fairly simple process but I love my hair now! It's very natural and it blends easily. The ash brown I asked for is very subtle and you won't probably see it under low-lighting but that was I wanted. I didn't want to have an obvious ash colour because like I said, I just wanted to go back to being dark-haired. I just wanted to try out the ash so as to not have my hair looking too flat.
AND I got a 20% discount so it worked out cheaper than at my old hairdresser's place. Man, I love myself a good discount. And I got a member card which I think just collects points (?) and you just redeem that for your next visit.
I'm not being asked to blog about my experience whatsoever, by the way. I just really like my hair colour now hahaha
EDIT : So it's been about almost 3 weeks since I coloured my hair and it has definitely turun colour. It's now not the colour as pictured in photo above; it's gone a bit brown now. Kinda like my previous colour only not so obvious. Such a pity though (and I'm quite annoyed and disappointed) because I really liked the colour in the picture!!!!!!!!
EDIT #2 : I'm a month in with my new dark hair colour (from a different hairdresser!) and it's still the same colour as the first day I had it done. Which is bloody brilliant. And I've been washing my hair every single day! It hasn't faded one bit!
I don't know if this applies to the rest of Number 76's customers but the hair colour I got from them, although beautiful at first, faded way too quickly and way too easily! And I followed exactly what the hairdresser at 76 told me to do which was to use proper hair treatment for coloured hair. I swear, this hair colour didn't even last 3 weeks on me! Taught me a good lesson; to always stick to what's good for you! Sorry Number 76, really wanted to like you but after having my hair recoloured by my ol' trusty hairdresser, I have to be the unpopular minority to not like the quality of your hair colouring!
