Two months ago I decided to dye my hair rose gold but got out with ginger hair instead. If you happen to read my post about it, you might get a flashback. 🙂
But what seemed to be a mistake, turned out to be a unexpected blessing! Because with this new hair color, people recognize me more!
I remember one time when I was eating in Trinoma, a friend passed by the glass window and immediately caught sight of my hair. She wondered if it was really me! Haha It was! 😀
In Gateway, I was walking on the grounds surrounding the coliseum, when a friend got out of a nearby restaurant and approached me. Whenever there’s a blog event or a speaking engagement, people call me “Via” already, without asking for my name! It’s crazy! 😀
So I guess ginger hair helped me in more ways than I expected. I haven’t even thought of it as a part of my branding. 😀
My publicist actually advised me to maintain it, because it has provided me an extension of my brand as a blogger and as a shoe designer.
And of course, we know that a lot of things don’t lasts forever, especially hair color and length. As my hair grew longer (as if it’s not long enough), the roots are starting to show, and the once highly pigmented strands is beginning to fade.
That is why it was so timely that I got to visit Vivere Salon in Glorietta, and have my much-awaited hair retouch and makeover!
I booked an Uber to Glorietta 2, and surprisingly I found the salon too soon than I thought I would. It’s on the 3rd floor, in front of Electro World.
I love how posh their salon is. It even has this geometric design I am so crazy about! 😀
Since my hair color was actually just an accident, it may be difficult to duplicate. The original hue wasn’t red, or orange, or pink, it seems like a fusion of all 3. The tint changes magnificently in different levels of lighting.
My favorite was the one under a yellow misty light in Francis Libiran’s Fashion Show. It had a rich, romantic and regal tinge to it.
So this is my hair that needs all the love it can get!
JC Espiritu, the resident Senior Hair Stylist in Vivere Salon Glorietta worked his magic in creating the color I wanted. He posed some techniques about the duration of the bleaching cream on my crowning glory, and some hairstyling words that sounded alien to me.
I specifically told and showed him that I have to achieve THAT certain color because it’s part of my self-branding. People recognize me to have that red-orange hair color.
Ms Eveb (Junior Hair Stylist) helped me bleach my hair roots until they turned corn yellow. The rest of my mane has already been bleached previously, so there was no need for additional creams.
The concoction was painful as expected, but I didn’t mind. All for beauty!
I got my hair washed, and I swear I look like an easter egg here! I was actually in doubt whether I should upload this, but hey, we all got flaws! Haha 🙂
After an hour or less, my hair was ridden off the cream, and had to be blow dried. Honestly, I didn’t mind going out of the salon with a gradient yellow to orange hair!
I look like a total walking sunset in this! But, the process isn’t finished yet, so I have to stay seated.
This was the time Sir JC showed me the hair dye emulsion. They particularly look like the pigment I wanted, so I was so excited!
He said, “Ms Via, nag-magic ako!”
(Redeeming my egg face with this tilted lying-shower-pose! Haha 😀 )
It was Sir JC’s idea to have my eyebrows dyed as well. They turned shades lighter as in!
My “kilay is life” game looks more appealing, and suiting for my raspberry hair!
True enough, his potion-skills were excellent!
I didn’t just get the color I wanted, it was even better! 😀
I have never wanted a hair color so much in my life! Not to mention, that finally, there is a salon that exists that can actually make your hair color dreams come true!
My signature hair is BAAAAAAACK!
And it’s better, red-oranger, gingerer, mermaid-ier and Ariel-er! 😀
I can’t contain my happiness, this is even better than having legs! That is why I can’t help but splash out hugs and flipping fins to the best hair experts in the land!
Thank you Sir JC and Ms Eveb for bringing back the life and luster of my hair, and making it more beautiful! 😀
It looks very cotton candy on this side of the salon! Took a snappy with Rayrose Samson, a fellow blogger!
