I dyed my hair a few weeks ago! These were the before pictures. My first dye was back in December 2011 by a trainee at Toni & Guy. It was a disaster. The dye was left for 5 minutes only lol. It was quite uneven and a rather bad job. Just 2 months and it looked like crap already (see the back view picture).
Wendy and I bought this cheap deal at Groupon. New Station had this deal at $28 so we went to the Clementi's outlet. We thought that there's no harm trying since it is only $28. Despite reading the bad reviews, I went ahead with it. Hair was ALL over the place - chair, table, floor.etc You name it, there's hair. As I was wearing a knit top on the day, a lot of hair got stuck onto my top (damn gross!). I am very particular about cleanliness so I was really grossed out by other people's hair all over me. It was quite a bad experience but then again, $28, what can you expect?
I wanted a lighter brown but the stylist only gave me a few choices because apparently, "the other colours will be ugly and not turn out well.". Fine that. In the end, I settled for boring dark brown. I felt that he did not do a good job during the dyeing process but for the price of $28, I cannot complain much also. The original price was $90++ which I felt was rather ridiculous.
Verdict: I will never patronise there again. If you want a good dye job, it is still best to go to renown salons like Jean Yip, Toni & Guy, Essensuals.etc. I believe you will get what you pay for :)
I have unofficially ended Poly on 23rd Feb where I had my last exam. It feels so surreal that I have finally completed Polytechnic education. I am still at the stage where I am trying to figure out what I really want. Everything is happening too fast. I am fast approaching my twenties and am still in the state of self-denial ._. Treasure your school days well! School is a place where you will feel young.
