I’m a LEO – and there is nothing more important than my mane! Last week, I attended the “Glam Me Up!” bloggers’ event at Shunji Matsuo Hair Studio (260 Orchard Road #05-01 The Heeren). I’m a regular customer at Shunji Matsuo for the past two years with hairstylist Evande. In fact, she’s my family hairstylist – my husband, my mother, my sister… you name it! Even my good buddy, Janice cuts her hair with Evande. So don’t be surprise if I’m singing praises for this hair salon! It was also the first time I got to meet Shunji Matsuo, the hairstyling maestro himself. Let me take you through the night of hair glam:
Shunji Matsuo introduced the Top Japanese Hair Trends:
- Texture – for short cuts
- Round fringe – created using rollers
- Accessories such as scarf or hairband
- Odango a.k.a. high-top
- Princess fringe (hime-cut) – it’s popular for face-slimming
The basics for every girl to create different hair looks: Rubber bands, bobby pins, hair pins, hair clips and etc. All should be kept in a clear, acrylic box available at Daiso.
International Director, Kaoru demonstrated how to use the hair curler.
Shunji transformed this regular bob into… *drums roll*
*wait for it*
TA-DAH! A little Rockabilly-Elvis spin from a simple bob. All in a couple of minutes. Amazing!
Alright, now it’s myyyyyy turn! This is my flat, “before” hair. I’m such a lazy person when it comes to styling.
My stylist, Lilian decided to braid my hair by adding a little twist by loosening and twisting them like pretzels.
This is the FINAL result! A little twist to the usual fringe for lazy me ^_^
How can I resist this? A picture with Shunji Matsuo with Kawaii signs!
Another variation of the braid thingy. It looks better with lighter hair colour!
With her makeup, I can’t beat that J-pop look!
I love this braid “headband” on Nadnut.
Also complete with makeup!
From Taiwan,Â River styled another blogger’s hair. I should have gotten her name!
Patricia from Sweetest Sins, hairstylist Lilian Lay and moi.
I found another K-drama buddy. SARANGHAE!
One group shot before the night ends I had a blast!
