On our 1st day in HK, we roamed around the Mongkok Streets without any programme in mind and Mum suggested for haircut or hair treatment. Not that its cheap or something, its just that we have never done that together specially now when all of us are busy working. Its just so hard to have such quality girl time!
The girly pink signboard just caught our attention.
The salon is located just on the third floor in the midst of Mongkok Shopping Street (Fa Yuen Street) that is packed with loads of shopping.
This is the entrance just beside the alley
We were greeted by a totally different view at their reception.
An overall view from the entrance
I personally like the spacious layout and also the color used makes me feel cozy too.
They have full glass window that enable you to glance or peek (depends on the angle of your sitting) on whats going on the street. Its exactly like how I always sit by the window of the cafe, slowly sipping my drink while looking at buzzing traffic & passer-by. It makes me feel relax! The salon has a large LCD screen showing various Kpop Singer/Group in action and also X-Japan to keep you occupied. By the way, they have in-house wifi so dun be like me spending my time reading mag to keep myself occupied/awake, if only I asked!
I was expecting to be serve by ladies mainly due to the girly pink signboard but was surprised to be greeted by a male stylist who is ok as guys does good job with hair too. It turns out that this salon is managed by a team of experienced guys, according to my mum.. (think she had a little chat with them as she was done earlier than me) Frankly speaking, i would prefer guys to do my hair as they are much careful & gentle in some way, not sure if you agree? We can speak bits of cantonese but no worries as they understand english too, i was quite worried initially of mis-communication but was it was a breeze talking to them especially to hear of their recommendation!
What we had:
Mummy & I opt for rebonding, hair coloring & haircut service while sis just chose to have the hair coloring service only. I dreaded hair treatment time, as it makes me so drowsy and sleepy! All of us chose the shade we want and also as recommended by the stylist as i have some concern specially if the color would work for my hair.
My 4 Hours Session
During my almost 4 hours session or probably longer, i was served by this male assistant who wash & dried my hair numerous times for each application (rebonding, coloring). He is really gentle when it comes to shampoo & rinsing my hair. In fact, i would thumbs up for his polite & good service (too bad i din catch his name). *shout out* Sorry that I must have been rambling too much to you on how tired i am to keep my butt on the seat. Anyway I could proudly say i managed to read more than half of the magazine they have & probably the quota i would hit in a year or two haha.
My Hair Color & Haircut
I love the light touch of color they did to my hair, not too loud and suitable for the conservative environment here. I always have issues with rebonding, as my hair is really a tough case that usually i have to head back for touch-up which means 3-4 hours x 2! So now you know how i hate hair session. The hair stylist who did my haircut did a really good job, as my previous haircut was a disaster for him to start off with. He did a soft layered for me that makes me feel my hair are lighter and also neat! One thing to mention, the hair coloring product they use dun have those stinky ammonia smell at all so Mum & I were pleased even though we can't wash our hair for our second & third day in HK haha.
We paid a total of HKD2,500 for all the services as mentioned above, was given a VIP card at the spot. I worked out the sum, its quite affordable HKD900/SGD140 as compare to what I'm paying here. My last rebonding with twister cost me over SGD300+ but my hair was slight longer and label as XXL (extra extra long). And i went back there for second round of rebonding as my hair wasn't straight enough.
I dun have a before & after pic but this is me sporting my new hairstyle on the next day.
