How did you all spend your holiday last week?
For me, I headed to Gemmil Lane near Club Street to go to THE COMB HAIR STUDIO. I wanted to change my hair color.
The Comb is owned and headed by Creative Director, Rina Kil, a hairstylist to the big stars in Korea like Lee Jin Wook and Akira Kim. I initially thought the name of the salon, The Comb, is due to its association to hair but it has a deeper and more personal meaning for Rina Kil that is why it is called The Comb. Her relative in Seoul, Korea gave her a family heirloom, a Mother-of-Pearl comb and told her to “Comb your hair and show the world what you’ve got.” Isn’t that a beautiful story?
When I enterd the salon, I was greeted by the friendly receptionist. I asked to sit for a while and offered me some drinks. They have a little booklet of drinks for me to choose from. I opted to have a glass of orange juice. I browsed to some of their magazines. I love glossies! I am happy to see that they have up-to-date issues of glossy magazines and not back issues like some salons.
The minimalistic interiors of subdued tones of browns and whites appeals to me. The hair studio looks very clean and organized. I noticed there were no scattered hairs on the floor. I learned after that it is swept consistently after haircuts.
I decided to get a new hair color. I wanted to go a little bit darker and do away with my regular chestnut brown hair color. I also wanted to get a bit of trim. I am ready!
I had senior stylist, Henry Yu, to dye my hair to purplish burgundy and trim my hair. He was graciously enough to give his suggestion of the best burgundy color for me.
Hair dye was applied to my hair and I was happy reading my glossies while the friendly staff ask me if I need an orange juice refill. The hair dye didn’t feel painful on my scalp. Some dyes can be too strong that you feel your scalp burning or itchy. After a few minutes, the hair dye was washed off. While washing my hair, I was also given a very relaxing scalp massage. It was such a wonderful treat.
Then Henry blow-dried my hair and gave it some wonderful waves. I love it!
This is how my hair looks indoors. I like that it didn’t look dry and I love that it is looks iridecent.
This is how it look out doors. I double love it! And my hubby loves it too!
I am so happy with results and I am glad I spent my holiday at The Comb. Thank you, The Comb, for giving me a star treatment.
