Hair restyle at Shunji Matsuo

This is the very first time in my life I got my haircut done by a professional hair stylist, the first time walk into this kind of classy hair studio and also first time spend the most on a haircut.

Yeah, this thrifty and cincai wife here have been stick to those conventional hair saloon since she was a little girl, which a hair cut can only cost below RM15. I'm actually so sick of keeping my shoulder length layered for more than 10 freaking years. Everytime go to hair saloon is cut shorter only. If were to ask them what other hair style looks good on me, they will either ask me to cut shorter, keep long layered or giving me a hair styling magazine ask me choose from there. I did permed it too in between, but those hair style not last long for my soft hair texture. Sometime really no confident to ask them to give me a change or if I choose for a change (from those mag), end up I don't really like it. So, always it is still play safe - remaining the usual style.

You know what, on this year itself up to yesterday I only went to saloon once; which is few days before Chinese New Year for cut shorter, coloured and treatment. After that, no trim, no cut, no treatment. I actually wanted to go for a real change at hair studio already since my last hair cut, but time not allow, so keep till today after being push and push.

My cousin sis the one who really understand me inside out keep pushing me to Shunji Matsuo for a real change and recommended me her hair stylist. Sunny Ang is the top one in Shunji. So, not wait any longer till Chinese New Year, now I have my new hair style. It is not those very outstanding, but something different from the old fashion layered hair. I coloured it too in Copper Brown.

While I'm there, I just let the hair stylist decide without giving much of my own suggestion. He was percise and trim my hair slowly. He took almost 45 mins to do it. First, they wash my hair with 2 rounds shampoo, then blow dry. Cut and trim began, when done blow again. Coloured began, 1 hour 15 mins to do it. Wash it, blow dry and did final trimming. Later the hair stylist even gave me some comments on my hair texture and generally what kind of hair style suitable for me. The advice is really priceless. The conventional hair saloon which I visited more than 10 years also not giving me such info.

Half way trimming

Half way colouring

Done!

Although this new hair style is something like I've cut it before, but the way Sunny trim it in creating the hair movement is certainly different. My first time so far so good and I'm very happy and satisfied. I will be back again and I think I can stop going to those conventional hair saloon.

Yup, should pamper yourself once in a while. Nice hairstyle. So how much did it cost?

etceteramommy said...

I like your new look. A change is good. Feels like cutting mine short too...

Not easy to find a good stylist. I also stick to one all these years when it comes to cutting/trimming my hair.

My wife is pretty particular about her hairstylist. Although she will try to tahan for as long as she could before she go for a session, it will always be Eric at Kool Kutz (I think) at Bangsar. I used to accompany her too but now, I am very much contended to pay RM15 for 15 minutes hair cut. BTW, you look great. Should pamper yourself more.

I had haircut by the Korean International Director @Shunji Matsuo. His name is Min. Not bad, quite pricey though - RM98.
Next time i will give sunny a try - he usually charges Rm68 (if not mistaken)
