Hello there! This is part 2 of our Yinyang 2-tone color without bleaching article where we’ll introduce 2 more combinations, Dark Red with Rose Brown and Dark Green with Bluish Green.


If you have not read part 1, I would recommend that you give part 1 a read first to understand what this coloring style is and the origin of it. Click here to read part 1.


Before we start on the introduction of the 2 combinations, this was actually two of our volunteers from our telegram group. We have a telegram group where we’ll share hair service deals at a discounted price and occasionally, we’ll look for hair volunteers within the group to try out hair services for free.


The telegram group is the only place that we will look for hair volunteers to try our services. We’ll not be posting the volunteer search on our FB or Instagram. If you’d like to join and one day be one of the volunteers to try free hair services, this is the link. Thank you!


Now that we got that out of the way, let’s begin on the coloring.


For this Yinyang 2-tone color without bleaching, it is for a direct coloring without any bleaching or lifting. However, to do a rose brown, a lifting is needed. A color lifting is not bleaching. Unlike bleaching that turns the hair into a blonde, this color lifting lifts the hair color to a light brown instead, using products that are less harmful to the hair in comparison to bleaching.


Our Japan Smoky Color series uses lifting for all the colors, to understand how lifting really works and its process, this is the link.


This is the volunteer that we have found to try out this Dark Red with Rose Brown combination.

I want to bring your attention to the current hair color. It is her natural hair color except for a bit of her previous color, which is a dark brown.


Next, for the planning process, we’ll be dividing the hair into 2 parts, the dark red (base) and the rose brown (inner).

I have mentioned in part 1 that the inner layer will be colored at a slightly higher position, giving more emphasis on the inner layer color. This is the area that will be lifted and colored with Rose Brown.


It’s quite a straightforward process so here are the next few photos to showcase the coloring.

Some of you have asked what the light brown looks like for the lifting. This is what it looks like. In short, it is a lighter shade of brown with some warm orangey tint, more like a medium honey brown. Next, we’ll be applying both colors on the hair.

Yes, I know I know, it’s not pretty. With all the red dye on the gloves, it looks like a horror scene from a movie. Haha. This is a very raw version of this coloring process, showing you what it really is, instead of what we want you to see.



The final result!



How it looks like when the inner layer is covered

Her hair is slightly naturally curvy at the ends so it shows this subtle rose brown on the inside. Really pretty!


Here's a closer look at the Rose Brown


Let us add a bit more waves to the hair and with that,

we present to you,

our version of


Dark Red with Rose Brown



It’s a beautiful combination because it all revolves around the red pigment, with the base being a subtle dark red and the inner layer with a pretty reddish-rosy-brown shade. Comfortable to look at and definitely pleasing to the eye.


Remember we have another combination? Dark Green with Bluish Green?


Without boring you too much on the entire process (as it will be the same thing as above), let’s jump straight to the outcome.

The outer layer is a dark green, the same green that we use for our full-length dark green at $78. It’s a subtle brownish-green that can be done directly without any bleaching or lifting.

And this is how the inner layer of Bluish Green looks like. As this is done without bleaching, the colors will be a dustier or a more smoky version of the original color.

This bluish green is more towards a dark ocean green where it still looks green in majority but with a slight blue tint. Less like a forest, more like an ocean.


Last but not least, on the prices, as we’re introducing our 2 new combinations, we’ll also be extending this service of the month to June.


Service of the month (May & June 2021)

Yinyang 2-tone Color Without Bleaching

At $118, for all hair lengths, for 2 different layers of color

Inclusive of haircut, olaplex mini treatment, and l’oreal treatment


The $118 would be for a direct coloring without bleaching or lifting. To add on bleaching or lifting on the inner layer, it will be at an additional $50, which is $118 + $50, in total at $168.


This means, the dark red with rose brown is at $168. Or if you prefer even lighter colors, you can opt for bleaching instead, to do colors such as blue, ash grey or ash blonde. Otherwise, if you just want to do the 2 layers without bleaching or lifting, I will attach some of the combinations below that you can consider.


Dark Purple with Copper


Dark Brown with Light Brown


Dark Green with Light Green


Dark Purple with Brown


Dark Purple with Light Copper


Light Brown with Light Green

And this is the end of this part 2 article of our Yinyang 2-tone color. I hope you like the Dark Red with Rose Brown, and also the Dark Green with Bluish Green. Join the telegram group too so that you will be notified immediately when we are looking for our hair volunteers. Thank you for reading! Stay safe and healthy! :)

Hello there! In this article, we’ll talk about the details of one of our coloring style - Yinyang 2-tone color without bleaching. Basically, everything about this coloring style, the origin, the photos, color choices, and also the promotion of this coloring style at the end.

Before that, let me start with a photo of this Yinyang 2-tone color.


If you have been following us since 2019, this should be quite familiar to you. This is a Dark Purple base with Copper on the inside.

That’s right, Yinyang 2-tone color consists of 2 different layers of direct color without bleaching or lifting. You might think it looks similar to the underlight or earloop highlights.


This is partially modeled after that as we’re trying to create a non-bleach option for this kind of 2-layer style. Before our Japan Smoky Color days, there were many requests from our customers asking if we could do something similar to the underlight but in a less damaging way, in other words, without bleaching, and we came up with this!


What makes it different is that usually for the underlight, the hair will be bleached around the lower half of the hair but for the Yinyang, the inner layer can be dyed at a higher position, giving more emphasis on the second layer.


Without any bleaching or lifting, you can do colors like the different shades of brown, dark/light/normal brown, dark red, dark purple, copper, dark green, bluish green, and gold.


Let’s take a look at more examples


Dark Brown with Light Brown



Dark Green with Light Green



Dark Purple with Brown



Dark Purple with Light Copper



Light Brown with Light Green



Bluish Green with Red


Most of the photos are taken under exposure to sunlight so you can see the light reflection on the hair. Without bleaching, for example, for the Bluish Green above, it will be a subtle bluish-green color for the outer layer. Let’s take a closer look at the hair. You can see the red inner layer better in this photo below. Green tones with red is a very good combination with good contrast.

Also, as this is done without bleaching, the outcome will depend heavily on your current hair color. For example, if you have been consistently coloring black or dark brown, the outcome will be darker in comparison with somebody with light brown hair.


With that said, this is going to be our Service of the Month for May 2021 -


Yinyang 2-tone Color Without Bleaching

At $118, for all hair lengths, for 2 different layers of color

Inclusive of haircut, olaplex mini treatment and l’oreal treatment


My suggestion: If you have a full-length bleached hair, you can consider doing this to transform the blonde hair into a combination that you like. As the hair has already been bleached, you have a wider choice of colors to choose from. Maybe a dark brown with ash brown? Or maybe a dark purple and ash purple? Or if you did the underlight before with the inner layer already bleached, you can consider doing this too.


Or you prefer the inner layer to be bleached and do a lighter color, there will be a small top-up for the bleaching on the inner layer. Alternatively, you might not be keen on bleaching the hair but want a lighter color, that is okay too, we have our lifting to do the Japan Smoky Color on the inner layer. Just send us a message and talk to us. We can discuss that further.


Here is the link to the color choices of our Japan Smoky Color series, click anywhere here.


And we have reached the end of this article. This coloring style has been with us for quite a number of years, it helps us a lot as a firm foundation to pursue and create other coloring styles.


Thank you so much for reading! I will attach more photos on the inner layer done with bleaching so that you can make a comparison and decide which one you’re going for. Stay safe and healthy! :)

Inspiration? All your CNY hair ideas in here :D

Hello there! It’s the time of the year where we will be receiving a lot a lot a lot of appointment bookings for both Jan and Feb. Because of CNY. And we are terribly excited about that because we get to see your happy face after your pampering hair session! Haha.

I’m going to write about all the information related to our CNY changes, the prices, the surcharge and all our different coloring styles that you can consider doing. All of the coloring styles. This means, it will be quite a long article but the time taken to read finish is worth it as after that you will be able to make a better decision to choose a pretty coloring style that will impress all your relatives. How does that sound? :D


Do share this article with your friends if they need more ideas for the CNY hair. Thank you!

Before I start with the different prices and coloring styles, the CNY surcharge will start on 1/2/2021 at $15 for chemical services or $5 for haircut only. 2 examples. If you’re doing coloring + haircut on 9/2, it will be at a $15 surcharge, instead of $15 + $5. Or if you’re doing haircut only without any other services, it’s at a $5 surcharge. One exception, the $38 Cut + Olaplex mini treatment will be at $5 surcharge instead of $15. Once again, the CNY surcharge will start on 1/2 and our last day of operation is 10/2.


Our operating hours for now is from 11am to 9pm (weekdays), 10am to 7pm (sat) and 11am to 7pm (sun). But from 30/1 to 10/2, we'll open from 10am to 10pm.

At the end of this, I will include a full list of our price list. If you just want to see the list without looking at the photos, you can scroll to the end.

Here come the details for the different coloring styles -

Normal Color @ $68 ($88 on 1/2 to 10/2)

This is our primary coloring service that has double functions. It would be for 1 single full-length color without bleaching or color lifting, just one single color on the entire hair. The usual questions I get are if my hair has been bleached twice before, can I do an ash purple directly at $68 without bleaching it again?

Yes, you can, if your hair is light enough to do the desired shade of ash purple, or if it is not light enough, we can discuss further to find a slightly darker shade of ash purple.

On the other hand, what if the hair is black? In this case, the choices would be normal colors such as the different shades of brown, chocolate brown, dark brown, normal brown, or colors like different shades of copper or dark red. Remember, the lighter your hair is the more color choices that you will have.

We also have our signature service - Color + Stem Cell Treatment at $138 ($158 on 1/2 to 10/2). Stem Cell Treatment is our premium repair treatment that contains argan stem cell and various hair vitamins. This $138/$158 will not be valid for further VIP discount, the rest of the services will be valid for further discount., all of it, except for this.

Dark Purple/Green w/o Bleaching @ $78 ($98 on 1/2 to 10/2)

This would be similar to the normal color above but just that this would be for Dark Purple (Wine color) and Dark Green. Why the extra cost is because, for this, we’re using a color booster that has a stronger pigment to ensure the hair is able to absorb these 2 special colors without having to bleach the hair or lift it.

We usually get quite a lot of requests for the Dark Purple as it is really a very special color, a very beautiful and subtle dark violet red. Just like red wine, it’s not red, it’s not black either, it’s just a special type of subtle color on its own. A low-key version of flamboyant. I think it’s really pretty, how about you? :)

Color + Highlights @ $158 (no price change)


Now it’s getting exciting. For our Color + Highlights, there are many different styles to it. We have launched our Japan Autumn Highlights (Fringe Lights, Surface Lights, See-through Lights) last year and it was quite a hit. These are special ash blonde highlights with a heavy japanese feel. To understand more about our Japan Autumn Highlights, click here to go to the previous article.

For other styles, we can also do babylights, the small streaks of highlights, which brings a lot of dimension to the hair. Did you see the Dark Purple base and the lighter purple streaks? That is done with this $158 Color + Highlights too. How it works is, we will do the highlights first and thereafter to do a full dark purple color on the entire hair, which turns the base dark purple and the streaks a lighter purple. You can do that with other colors too, maybe red? That’s equally nice too!

Yinyang 2-tone color w/o bleaching @ $168 (no price change)

This was our signature service for CNY 2019, two years ago. And even up till now, we are still receiving appointment bookings for this service. In short, it is basically 2 colors without bleaching on different layers, front and back.

You can be creative with the combination, depending on your style. We did Dark Brown with Light Brown, Dark Purple with Copper, Dark Brown with Copper, and many different combinations. If you have lighter hair, your color choices would be wider, you can even go for a Dark Purple with Ash Purple.

We have several videos for this, do click here, here, or here.

Japan Smoky Color series @ $168 (no price change)

The Japan Smoky Color series was a major milestone of ours because we created this after our stylist went for intensive training in Japan. To understand more about the entire process, do click here to go to the article. And a video here too. :)

In short, this is an alternative of the standard color but with a toned-down dustier and smoky shade, which in other words, it means a darker shade. No bleaching is needed but it will require a color lifting. There is a difference, do find out from the link to the process above.

The colors available are Smoky Ash Purple, Smoky Dark Ash Blue, Smoky Rose Brown, Smoky Milky Gold, Smoky Milky Lavender, Smoky Space Blue, Smoky Ash Brown, Smoky Sakura Red, Smoky Ash Green, Smoky Copper.

Ombre Butterfly @ $198 (no price change)

For ladies who prefer a creative twist to the normal highlights, this is the creative twist that combines both color + highlights and yinyang 2-tone color. The inner color will be a color without bleaching. You get to choose what kind of combination that you want. The classic combination would be a normal brown with highlights and light brown underneath.

Or if you want a more creative color like blue or purple, we do offer bleaching on the inner layer at $50. If you have slightly wavy hair, you might want to try this, your relatives will be busy looking at your hair instead of asking those unnecessary questions about your private life. Hahaha.

Balayage @ $168 (no price change)

A french hand painted coloring technique, it’s like an art piece, using freehand to create those smooth gradient effect that transits the base color softly from dark to light.

We offer both with bleaching and without bleaching. Without bleaching, it will be done by the same color lifting we use for the Japan Smoky Color series. Do take a look at the Navy Blue Balayage w/o bleaching video over here. The gradient effect would be less obvious as there is no bleaching. However, the hair will not be as damaged because… there is no bleaching! But it does not mean there will be no damage at all, there will still be some. Ultimately, we’re using chemicals to alter the hair color.


Previously, we have also introduced a Smoky Rose Brown Balayage without bleaching, photos and more information about it in this link.

Ombre @ $118 (no price change)

There are a few definitions of Ombre as different salons might have different interpretations of this coloring style. For us, unlike the Balayage at least 60% length bleaching with a gradient effect, this would be a straightforward 50% length bleaching and 1-tone color on the lower half. There is also the Ombre Underlight where a creative color is done on the inner layer of the hair.


We just had the Underlight (Peekaboo highlights) as our service of the month in December, if you missed the article, do give it a read over here.

Many opted to do Balayage because of the harsh line in between but I have also seen many who prefers an obvious separation of colors. You might ask, which one is nicer? My opinion is that both are equally good, it depends on your personal style and preference. As long as you feel confident with your hair, even if it’s just a normal brown, the overall feel will exude confidence and beauty.

Ombre Waterfall @ $228 (no price change)

Among all our coloring styles, this is one of my personal favourite. We took the concept of a waterfall and modify this from the traditional Ombre style. The hair is only bleached at the bottom 20 to 30% and with a couple of related colors including the base color, it resembles a waterfall gushing down. Very creative!

This will slightly be on the high end as it includes the base color, the bleaching on the lower 30% and up to 2 colors on the lower bleached area. In addition, Olaplex or Bond rebuilder collagen treatment will be added into the bleaching solution. If you don’t want to damage your hair too much, pick this as the bleaching will only be on the lower ends, and olaplex/bond rebuilder is included so the hair will not be as damaged.

Full length Creative Color @ $150/$200/$250 (no price change)

This would be quite straightforward, full length bleaching and 1 tone full length color. This is more fun as you can have a full head of neon pink or a light ash purple. If you’re afraid that the color might fade too fast, don’t worry, we have many different pigment masks for you to use at home. The pigment mask refreshes the color every time you use it. Ask us about it, we’re all here to help you! :)

The price difference is for different length, $150 for short length (applies for guys too), $200 for length above shoulders and $250 for length touching or below shoulders. The bleaching included in the price is unlimited bleaching.

Other hair services -

4-Step Keratin Straightening Treatment @ $98/$138 (no price change)


Our regular customers will be familiar with this, the keratin treatment will be at $98 on Mondays (final one on 25/1) and $138 on other days. From 26/1 to 10/2, it will be at $138 all the way. Do book your appointment early as our Mondays are usually fully booked in advance.

Although this is labeled as a straightening treatment, the main function of such keratin treatment is to provide smoothing and reduce frizz. This is mostly use for taming the unmanageable hair too as it straightens it naturally. The hair will feel a lot smoother. If you frequently do rebonding to straighten your hair and would like to try the keratin treatment, do talk to us first before deciding.


I wrote an article on all the truths for the keratin treatment, all the good and bad things, also on the chemicals inside, do give it a read to understand more. It will definitely help you a lot! :)

Rebonding @ $138 (no price change)

This will be quite straightforward. Rebonding is a hair straightening service where the hair bonds are broken to be altered and re-bond into the straight hair structure. Because the hair bonds would be broken, it is not suitable for bleached hair as it might not be strong enough to endure this process. Bleached hair has a different hair structure compared to normal non-bleached hair.


Rebonding coupled with color + highlights really looks amazing! I posted one of such combination it received one of the high engagement we ever had. Great taste! :D

You can choose between normal rebonding or soft rebonding. The difference is that soft rebonding will give a softer effect using chemicals of a lesser strength coupled with some straightening technique with the flat iron.





These are our popular services above, if you have read until here, I’m extremely thankful to you! Or if you just scroll through to look at the photos, I’m equally thankful too. Haha.

Before I end, I would like to say that we don’t sell packages, charge GST or service charge. Haha. If you would like to understand more, you can call us at 6336 1476 (bugis cube) or 6259 4631 (tiong bahru) or send us a message on our FB. To book an appointment, you can do the same, or whatsapp us directly @ http://wa.me/6590250432 (whatsapp only) or head to the appointment tab above on the menu bar. Thank you!
