My Hairstylist.

My beautiful hairstylist is this woman; her name is Florence. She always provide the best hair style and texture for my hair. She did everything from cut, dye, and wash too! I love her so much! :) 
She isn't just my hairstylist, in fact, she is my mom. From her tummy till now. :) Taking care of me from top to bottom! She's also very supportive and encouraging too! She's my best friend and my enemy! (HAHA JOKING LOL) I mean sometimes we have tough times too, right? 
 Taken during her birthday at home :)

The best part is she is always concerned about every one of her customer's hair; what they want and what they need; in order to make sure she provides the best for her customers! Including me! (I am a fussy customer LOL xD)

I'll briefly let you know about her career history.

Before she was a hairstylist, she was an accounts clerk because she loved calculating. In the long period of time, she eventually realized that her job was too boring (that's what she told me). She preferred something more practical and can be more active when she's working (not so dull like office work). Having 4 sisters and 3 of them are hairstylist; she was the only white collar together with another younger sister. Eventually, she went to one of her sister's saloon and learned some basics and soon she entered to Kimarie Salons and Academy at Singapore for around a year plus for 4 months in training and eventually after she graduated & she become a coach or a teacher for Kimarie Academy for a year. She began to be more interested in depth about hairstyling and did some courses on make-up & facial too! Soon, she decided to go to London to pursue her skills more in Vidal Sassoon Academy, Toni & Guys Academy and Morris Academy of Hair Design. She was also rewarded with a few certificates from professional hairstylists in London! She was in UK for several years. (fyi, I wasn't born yet, lol) 

Soon, she came back to Malaysia because of marriage and decided to open a hair saloon in Kuala Lumpur in partnership with her elder sister in 1984 at Cheras. They named their shop Hair Now Beauty Center and it was first established at one of the shop lots nearby Leisure Mall. Soon, her sister retired and my mum took over the place. From 1984 till now Hair Now Beauty Center or called as Hair Now De Saloon has been existing for 28 years! ( and counting ;) )

I've always loved my mum's magic hands! She does her job amazingly well! She often never failed me when it comes to hair styling. Today, she had just done ombre on one of her satisfied customer; and the result was so good! 

 I can show you a picture of my mum's saloon! 
 Every products she use in her salon is the one and only L'OREAL PROFESSIONNEL products! 
Some inspirations on dip dying and ombre. Do note that ombre and dip dying are totally different - so don't get confused! 

What is Ombre?
The word Ombre is a French word for shading or graduating. Hair stylists have coined this terminology to describe a color technique that they have been using in the salon. If you need a visual, think of dark hair at the scalp and lighter on the ends. Usually the color blends from dark to light with no harsh transition line. It's more long lasting and usually it doesn't really fade much.

What is Dip-dyed Hair? 
Dip dyed is basically only dye on your ends for any bright colours or contrast colour that looks very eye-catching. Now this is one of the trends for this season especially for summer! For dip dyed hair, it can lasts for only 2 weeks. So usually it will fade into very light colour and sometimes it also brings very cotton candy-like when it started to fade; depending on which colour.

This is dip-dye.
This is Ombre.
