Rose Gold Hair Color

Who would have thought that rose gold can also be a hair color?! It has been a trend for a while now and I must admit, it is as flattering as rose gold jewelries and accessories! I have been meaning to try it, but I had to rest my hair for a couple of months. Now that my birthday is coming up, I thought it would be a perfect time to sport a new do. Why not try rose gold hair color?! So, this is the photo I posted on my Instagram (@lush_angel) that caused a bit of chaos. Kidding! But yeah, a lot of people have been asking about this rose gold hair color, which was done by Hairshaft Salon in Podium. Let me just go through the semi-tedious process that let to my rose gold hair color. First, they lightened my hair a bit to achieve the hair color I wanted. The foils were heavy! Haha! A few minutes later, my hair was rinsed and toner was applied on the mid-section and on the ends. My hair was rinsed again and they worked on my roots. And… TA-DA! Done! Well, it’s not as simple as it looks since the entire process took us around 5.5 hours. Of course, I had to do hair treatment right after, which is very important after hair coloring, and a Brazilian Blowout. Well,...

Kiehl’s SuperSkinSesh

I visited Kiehl’s in Greenbelt 5 for a #SuperSkinSesh. What is it all about? Well, it’s a skin session to know more about Kiehl’s, my skin, and products I should use. Let me just share a brief background about Kiehl’s, which I think I shared a thousand times also here in the blog. Haha! But for those who are not so familiar with the brand, it started in 1851 in East Village NYC by John Kiehl. Then, his apprentice Irving Morse, who was also involved in the development of many Kiehl’s products today like Crème de Corps, purchased Kiehl Pharmacy in 1921. Eventually, his son Aaron Morse took over and brought international recognition to the brand. After 160 years, Kiehl’s still remains to be true to its commitment in being the purveyor of the world’s finest skincare- with no rules, just skin care that works. It has become a brand loved by many all over the globe. I took the skin test first to know the appropriate Kiehl’s products I should use. As expected, my skin is oily, especially on the t-zone. I was also given a little “crash course” on Kiehl’s products. I’m not new to the brand. In fact, I’m using some of my favorites. But if you look at any Kiehl’s boutique from a far, you would probably wonder what are all those skincare products? They can...

Balayage Hair Color or Subtle Highlights

It’s quite obvious how much I love to color my hair. Well, my regular visits to the salon and forever changing hair color, as seen in my Instagram account (@lush_angel), can attest to that. My favorite would probably getting highlights rather than a full head color. For me, it is more natural and adds dimension to the hair. Trust me, it’s really different. But what is Balayage? What makes it different from traditional hair coloring? What is Balayage? Balayage is a hair coloring technique, which has been around for quite a while now. It’s a freehand technique, which is why others would call it “hair painting”. It’s subtler than highlights since it’s not noticeable streaks. It has become popular that a lot of Holywood celebrities and models have been wearing it. Honestly, I used to love those streaks ever since I was in high school. But when Fred Penales of Hairshaft Salon introduced me to Balayage, I had a change of heart. Why? Advantages of Balayage Balayage color looks softer and natural than usual streak highlights or traditional hair coloring. It gives soft, sun-kissed highlights. Most importantly, Balayage is very low maintenance. Regrowth lines are less noticeable. In fact, it grows out beautifully. So in my most recent visit to Hairshaft salon, I thought of going for another Balayage. Here’s how my hair looks before the treatment. I know, I’m...
