Cobalt Blue with Shunji Matsuo

Hi Dblchinis,

This post might probably be a little too late because my hair had already faded to a shade of ash blonde ombre. However, don’t get me wrong, I still received tons of compliments regarding this hair colour even thought I’m not so please with the overdue colour.
I’m so glad this backlog post which is hibernating in my list of drafts since may is going to see light when I’m done writing. Fyi my hair was coloured in may, so it has been a whooping 3 months since I last fix them at shunji Matsuo. Is so tragic that I had to monetarily pause my current sponsorship because of school, but guess what? I will be graduating as a Professional Makeup Artist in 2 weeks time (that if I manage to pass my exams) and yays to no more school stress, my life can finally get back on track.Back to the hair, My previous colour was purple, pretty much a deep and dark royal purple. Comparing to the blue I did way earlier, it seems like the way it fades is nicer as compared to the purple.
So this time round I told Justin to change it back to blue and it needs to be super attention seeking because I can’t live without a day of drama in my life.
Scratch that, I’m a bold individual chick with light fashion sense and therefore I must bring out the me in me.

And so Justin gets down and dirty with his gloves.

The processed started by bleaching the darker ares, from the root area stopping 1/2 way down.My head was then inserted into this UFO which emits heat to hasten the chemical reaction. Not long after my hair is bleached out.

Soon after the 3 round of bleaching, I’m ready for blue.

The first round of colouring wasn’t too good, there are plenty of misses everywhere, so Justin went for another coat of blue and the shade of blue came out  beautifully.

I’ve been asked umpteen times where I colour my hair even thought the colour is already very washed out and received numerous compliments for it.

but you could catch a glimpsed of the shade when I flip my hair sideways or reveal the underside of my hair.
And Yes I promised I will go touch up once my exam is over and I can haz pretty hair again!
