WHERE DID U GET UR HAIR DONE. HELP AN SG KID OUT HERE

HI OKAY SORRY I WOULD ANSWER THIS PRIVATELY BUT I NEED A MASTERPOST FOR EVERYONE WHO ASKS ME

sg represent!! don’t worry friend i’m here to help rolls up sleeves are you ready for this

OKAY FIRST THINGS FIRST: i didn’t think of this myself. the general colour scheme is called “oil slick hair”, and it was first created by auracolorist on instagram (she’s really amazing and imo like the forefront of the hair dye trends these days!!)

i basically went to my hair stylist (specifically, i texted my friend/stylist alvin, who is from the ritz salon—@ 313 somerset, btw, and does the best haircuts in town, seriously) with a link to this article as well as several ref pics and said ‘i want it like this how much will it cost me’ and he referenced me the house colorist (don tan, if you’re wondering) 

i’m on really good terms with my stylist and when i texted him about this he told me to give his number to anyone who wanted to make an appointment! so if you’d like to have it, just send me another ask c; i’m not going to give it out publicly, because it’s still someone’s number. also, just prepare yourself; it might be rather expensive!! i’m not allowed to tell you how much it cost, sorry!

in terms of their process, the original one is outlined in the article, but what they did was: 1) bleach my hair—twice, bc i had existing dye on it they needed to get out 2) sectioned it into overlapping streaks of carefully chosen colours and 3) profit.

that’s basically a summary. if you notice, it’s actually under a section/layer of hair, so that’s more or less self-explanatory! just ask your hair person to do it under a layer (if your hair is layered and you want it subtle, make sure the layer is slightly longer than the top layers and it’ll show through!)

live your dreams!! if you ever get this hair tag me or send me an ask or something okay i want to see it ahahaha! good luck!!
