My First Hair Color @ Number 76, Starhill Gallery

My first ever experience of getting a hair service in Number 76 was at their Bangsar 2 branch. It was quite tricky to get a parking spot there as that area can be really congested. I looked through the rest of their branches and find that the one in Starhill can accomodate my schedule better as I can only get things done on the weekends.

Number 76 in Starhill is very busy during the weekdays but gets more relaxed towards the weekend so it is ideal for a person like me who is only able to go for my pampering session once the hubby takes over the kids.

This Starhill Gallery branch exudes luxury and indulgence. I love their spacious enclosed space for upmost privacy.

I wanted to get my hair colored. It has been ages since I last colored my hair, they are considered ‘virgin hair’ now. I did not want to shock the kids with platinum blonde hair or anything so I let Stylist Director Yves to decide for me. The first thing he asked was, “How light can you go?” to which I answered, “Not very light” :D

My Hair Makeover Menu of the Day:

1. Long Hair Color (RM296)
2. Tansan Scalp Wash (RM32)
3. Ultrasonic hair treatment (RM265)
4. Hair Cut (RM98)

It took about two hours to get my hair dyed, Tansan washed, treated with their signature Ultrasonic hair treatment and finished off with a hair cut.

The color we decided on is purple brown; subdue under natural lighting yet is obvious enough under strong light. I also requested for a Tansan wash on my scalp as it’s good to clean the scalp every once in a while as all these build-up can cause dandruff, itchiness and eventually lead to hair loss.

After the Tansan scalp wash, I opted for their signature Ultrasonic hair treatment to repair, hydrate and smoothens my newly colored hair.

I’ve blogged about this treatment. You can check it out here -> Ultrasonic Hair Treatment.

Finally, my pampering concludes with a haircut.

This is the result of my makeover:

My BEFORE and AFTER pic. I love how subtle the color is and am affectionately fond of my hair cut especially my fringe.

My hair looks like this under bright light. The color looks more intense.

I had a relaxing 2 hours here while the Daddy and kids walked over to Pavilion for lunch. The Daddy said I can come here again for future hair services as he can keep the kids occupied in Pavilion. Sounds like a good plan :D

    Same with me. Not too light coloured. hahah! My black hair is stubborn and hard to absorb colour, so I seldom colour it.

    Lovely new hair colour, Merryn. I would go for such colour too. Nice choice. Lovely salon too.

    Same here. That is why we opted to have just one tone for this first time to see how my hair copes. Am thinking if I should add highlights in .. hehe.

    I heard from a friend that the people in this 76 salon all have their hair dyed, colorfully!! haha, but that’s not the case in the photo.. maybe not in Star Hill kot, probably if they ever open a shop in SG Wang or Timesquare lah, haha, you know the customer community?? and your hair not much difference, you just trimmed a little and dye little, not pink also one?? muahahaha~~

    Heh. Your friend saw rainbow unicorns in number 76 eh? LoL. Colouring hair is very addictive, just like getting a tattoo. I start with this subtle colour, who knows, several months later you’ll see me with pink eventually! Hah!

    If you dye blonde, Ayden might not recognize you. I have a friend who been through exactly that hahaha!

    Merryn Reply:

    If I dye blonde, Ayden will recognise me as I’ve tried blonde before and has a picture of me like that at home. But if I go pink or other funky colours then he might not be able to accept it :P

    I like the hair colour under the light.
    I just had my hair coloured to cover the gray hair. I did it at “home saloon” where my hubby is the stylish..haaaa….after a few washes the colour will fade away, if it is not because of the gray hair, I wouldn’t want to dye my hair.

    So nice of your hubby. I did once at home before and my hubby did not help :(

    Merryn, your face looks like slim down a lot. Are you losing weight recently?

    [Reply]

    Merryn Reply:

    I wish I can lose weight but I think it is the angle. I’m still as chubby as I am :)
