This is my second time colouring and highlighting my hair, first time was in 2006 at promotional price of RM150(cut, highlight, color, treatment) at a salon at Travilion(closed down).
I’m not going to tell you where I did it this time due to some restrictions that I cannot reveal. I faced a bit of problem with them but eventually accept it as I believe the hairstylist skills will not disappoint me as he has many experiences under his belt for more than 2 decades, I’m sure he would do a great work for me. Just that the price gave me a huge shock, see this…
Freaking RM190 for cut, highlight and coloring my hair!! No treatment or even hairspray after that, only shampooed off the colour and blow dry. My first time spending this much on my hair. Add on with the previous RM22 hair cut sigh… Basically I had just wasted my RM22 last week to this new cut.
First off, I know if the hairstylist is the one cuts my hair, the price is RM60. My main aim was to get my hair coloured and highlighted, that’s all. I thought they would consider my hair as medium length but it turned out that it’s considered long -.-” So I’m charged with the long hair price which is RM160 but with the half price promotion, it’s RM80, not that bad right? The highlight is RM100 but half price, it’s RM50, OK right? Initially I should be spending RM130 only or less if they considered my hair medium length.
After few minutes of discussion on how I want my hair colour turn out(learnt a lot, didn’t know there’s so much things to consider to get the right hair colour), after about 45 minutes of highlighting, then colouring for 2 hours+, the hairstylist told me he would trim my hair.
OK… I didn’t tell them that I want to trim my hair, since he said that he would trim a bit, I was thinking maybe it’s just a bit of customer service as it’s my first time there, you know… To make sure you get return customer summore I should have a bit of special deal(I’m too naive) since…(cannot reveal due to confidentiality).
I just said,”Oooo…”. Then he started to trim, trim, trim, I sensed something not right… I said to him that he trimmed quite a lot, I didn’t ask him whether he would charge me for this or not as it’s halfway already, I couldn’t say no, else my hair will be ruined -.-” He told me this will make my hair looked better after wash and easier to maintain. Fine… I trust him because he’s really an expert and I had seen many good hairs coming out from him.
Now… It’s the time to pay… I’m charged with the extra RM60 because of the trimming from the hairstylist. I shouldn’t have let him trim but what to do, I didn’t know. Lesson to learn here, make sure you ask them whether they charge you or not if they do extra thing. Since I’m not the kind that frequent hair salon especially the kind that charge pretty expensive service charges or different charges with different hairstylist, I didn’t know that “law”. It’s an expensive lesson to learn, RM60 for a trim!! My first time having such expensive trim. I hope after my hair wash 3 days later, it will give me a good hair else I’m going to complain! Frankly the cut previously was a bit hard to maintain due to my natural curls and made my face looked very square. That’s why I took my before photo from the side.
Here’s the result after about 3 hours+ and a total damage of RM190. I’m so poor this month… Spent too much… Why Pikom has to be in April also? -.-” I had planned earlier on for this hair colouring, as this half price promotion only valid in April during weekdays, I won’t go if no promotion. If there’s no promotion, my hair would cost RM320!!! Goodness gracious! Expensive! Including the wasted RM22 hair cut, it’s RM342, only for my hair this month. *SWEAT gao gao*
The colour and the highlight aren’t that obvious in the photos though. In fact it’s quite obvious if you see me in real person. It does enhance my skin colour. The final result with no hairstyling products, just blow dry, the salon effect.
This will be my first and last time having such expensive hair services. Unless it’s sponsored.
Crazy! Guys… You can imagine how much girls spent for their beauty? Please don’t compare me with the other girls out there as I don’t spend as much as they do in beauty or shopping. To others, this RM300+ for hair services is nothing, for me is really something I have difficulty digesting. I’m still trying to digest the fact that I had spent RM60 for a trim, this explains why I can’t smile properly in the after photos -.-”
