If you're unsure what to do, this is the right place to look at. All your CNY hair ideas in here :D
Hello there! It’s the time of the year again where we get to transform a lot of hair into beautiful work of art for CNY. It's the period that all hair salons look forward to too. It will be fun!
I’m going to write about all the information related to our CNY arrangement, 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 11/1/2023 at $15 for chemical services or $5 for haircut only (including our $38 olaplex mini treatment + cut).
2 examples. If you’re doing coloring + haircut on 11/1, 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 11/1 and our last day of operation is 20/1. We will be closing slightly earlier on 20/1 for salon cleaning.
Our operating hours for now is from 11am to 9pm (weekdays), 10am to 7pm (sat) and 11am to 7pm (sun). But from 1/1 to 20/1, we'll open from 10am to 10pm (closing early on 20/1).
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.
From December 2022 to 20/1/2023, we'll have 4 services of the month, namely, Color + Highlights, Japan Smoky Color without bleaching, Balayage without bleaching, and Yinyang 2-tone color without bleaching, each of it at $118.
Do note that for our service of the month, it is not valid for VIP discount as it has been discounted. It is also inclusive of haircut, olaplex mini treatment, and l'oreal treatment.
$118 Color + Highlights (Japanese Highlights)
This was our recent service of the month for November. It was so well-received that we decided to extend this until CNY, but without the free product. In short, this is our usual color + highlights service but we have introduced 7 different colors with japanese highlights.
Or if you prefer the classic style, with ash blonde or blonde highlights, we can do it too, like the ones below.
To expand on this service, the $118 would be for a darker base color without bleaching, and also highlights (which can be either done by lifting, bleaching or a direct coloring). We can tone the highlights to another color, like the 7 colors above, or tone it to an ash blonde classic highlights. All these are under $118.
Alternatively, if you prefer something more exciting, we can do the fringe too, this fringe coloring style is called Money Piece, which means to bleach and color the 2 streaks at the front (at just a simple top up of $50). Very special, I would say.
$118 Yinyang 2-tone color without bleach
This coloring style was created as an enhancement to the normal 1-tone color, in short, this 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.
$118 Japan Smoky Color without bleach
By far, this is our most popular coloring style which I believe is due to it not having to bleach the hair and yet it is able to achieve special colors like ash purple. This is done with a lifting, to lift the hair to a light brown, and thereafter, the color application.
Lifting is a less damaging process compared to bleaching, a healthier alternative but the tradeoff is the outcome is darker. This is like a smoky, darker version of the original intended color. To read about the entire procedure of this and the entire color choices, click here.
$118 Balayage without bleach
The traditional balayage is a coloring style where the lower half of the hair is bleached and colored. With knowledge from our japan smoky color series, we can now do lifting on the lower 60% length of the hair and do a smoky color balayage, for example, a smoky rose brown. Instead of the full length smoky color, you have a healthier alternative to the classic balayage, a non-bleach balayage.
We offer both with bleaching and without bleaching, we'll talk more about balayage with bleaching below. 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.
The four $118 services above will be our services of the month that has been discounted, next, we'll introduce our other services -
Normal Color @ $68
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. Stem Cell Treatment is our premium repair treatment that contains argan stem cell and various hair vitamins.
Dark Purple/Green w/o Bleaching @ $78
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? :)
Ombre Butterfly @ $198
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
A french hand painted coloring technique, it’s like an art piece, using freehand to create these smooth gradient effect that transits the base color softly from dark to light.
The bleaching and coloring will be done mainly on the lower 60% length, however, the lighter the color, the more bleaching it requires.
Ombre @ $118
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.
In comparison to Ombre, 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
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 @ $200/$250/$300
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, $200 for short length (applies for guys too), $250 for length above shoulders and $300 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
Our regular customers will be familiar with this, the keratin treatment will be at $98 on Mondays (final one on 9/1) and $138 on other days. 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
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.
