Refreshing My Look at Artistry Hair Professional

More often than not, I had to struggle with managing my hair. This is especially more challenging with our local weather. I visited Artistry Hair Professional, my new hair sponsor, located at International Plaza, a stone’s throw away from Tanjong Pagar MRT station to give my hair a fresh look.

Before this, my tresses were left untreated since 4 – 5 months prior and you can see that there were uneven coloring spots, dry bleached ends and the texture looks dry and frizzy. Most of the time, I had to either straighten or curl my hair so that I don’t look like some crazy woman. I would also slather on a lot of hair oil or serum to make my hair look at least decent enough to see the world.

The salon itself is spacious with comfortable leather seats. Its interior is decorated with black, wood and slightly light tones to give it an inviting look.

The part of my hair where it’s bleached still retains, so Tar, my stylist, suggested not to bleach my hair but still give it the gradient ash tone that I wanted.

Tar also recommended the Mucota Scena Treatment to combat the frizz and make my hair smoother and more manageable.

The Mucota Scena Treatment consists of 3 steps:

Step 1: Prepping the hair and scalp to make it in a better condition for treatment. This is especially good for hair which had gone through tons of bleaching/coloring, making the hair soft and moist for the next treatment.

Step 2: Repairing the damaged hair, keeping the repair elements inside the hair, allowing it to work its magic.

Step 3: Protecting cuticle and get healthier hair. It will also retain the repair elements inside the hair to give it a silkier and shinier texture.

Here is the final look! I really love the slight gradient look which looks different under various light conditions.

I did another shade recently and it has a little tinge of purple ash tone. Love this look too!

Here’s my pretty stylist Tar! Look no further if you are looking for a hair salon. smile

Taiwan: Jiufen & Shifen Old Street 九份十分老街

It has been a long time since I last blogged. Too many travel backlogs that I reckon I need to pen them down here to reminisce old memories. smile Continuing our trip to Taiwan last March! tongue

We took a train to Ruifang station for our final destination Jiufen & Shifen. These 2 popular places seemed to be the “must go” places if you are ever in Taiwan and we just had to try once. bigsmile

We walked around the small town to explore, weaved through the busy crowd, shopped at old school stores and finally found the 100-year old A-Mei Tea House in Jiufen, which is said to inspire the Japanese anime film Spirited Away. You could find the film’s souvenirs in most stores and I nearly bought a No-Face doll back home, but was too scared that I might bring other stuff back so I didn’t. bigsmile

The stall Lai Ah Po Yu Yuan 赖阿婆芋圆 caught our eye and I knew that we had to try their taro and sweet potato balls. We had the hot version and had fun nomming on the chewy balls. Perfect for the cool weather when we were there! It was really good!

Another food that we tried is the ice cream popiah. I swear that this looks better than it looks, even much better with coriander. Now where can I buy that malted peanut so that I can make my own ice cream popiah. tongue

And lastly, grilled sea snails lightly seasoned with spices and we had fun eating them. smile

We continued our journey to Shifen to release the lanterns. Just had to do the touristy shots and we did all sorts of poses, instructed by the staff. They seemed to be extremely good in this lol!

Last selfie at the bridge! smile
