Purple (Plus Magenta) Dip-Dye @ Shunji Matsuo at 313

Thursday, August 2, 2012
If you haven't already realised, I dyed the ends of my hair purple a while ago, and I recently touched it up and added Magenta shades to the end as well. Again, I got it done at my hair sponsor - Shunji Matsuo @ 313. If you are interested, call them up at 62380226 to make an appointment!
(Quote my name "Yijing" to get 10% off chemical processes!)

I went to the salon with an initial idea of wanting to do a ombre dip dye with colours, but wasn't set on any colour yet. Caely gave me the suggestion to go with a purple/violet colour, and I wanted to add the pink to create more dimension to the colour, and I'm sooooooo happy with the results I can't even put it into words.

Before that, the base colour of my hair was Mocha Brown, and Caely darkened the colour for me during the first visit so that the purple isn't too striking. Prior to that, the ends of my hair were bleached. For the first visit, it took me about 6 hours to complete the whole process - but it was soooo worth it. (Mental note to self: prepare food before going to do my hair.)

1st visit for ombre : Darkening of hair colour + bleaching and colouring ends + steam treatment.

Look how pretty the colour looks!

2nd visit: Touch up for purple, lightening ends, and adding magenta + treatment.
I wanted the pink to be an accent to the purple, and add dimension to the colour and Caely nailed it! I just told her what I wanted roughly and left the rest entirely up to her because she's a professional and will definitely suggest something that will look the best for me!

If you're wondering why there seems to be less purple now, it's because I got my hair trimmed a little as well.

Right now I'm sooooo in love with the results I can't even put my excitement to words. I'm thinking of trying pink + orange ends the next time round since I really liked the orange colour that was left behind when removing the purple before touch up!

Thank yoooooou Caely! ^~^
