Belco Hair Studio @ Uptown, PJ

Nicole and I were walking in Uptown and we spontaneously decided to pop into Belco Hair Studio. It's nice to see new hair salons in Petaling Jaya to keep my options open. And I cut my hair short.



Nah not really xD


They were having an opening promotion where I got my Colour & Cut for RM 170, which is actually not THAT cheap for an opening promo. My hair colour usually costs RM 129 or RM 168 with haircut. And that was when my hair was much longer.


I believe this was taken at Niko Niko Onigiri though. Our fav onigiri place xD First photo of 2014, she said lolol



The place has limited space so if you're looking for posh interior, please close this page now. It is still quite new afterall..




The brand of hair dye they used is Shiseido which didn't leave my hair feeling dry. L'Oreal is alright as well but Schwarzkopf has a tendency to give me straw hair =/ Almost cried seeing my hair break apart at the slightest tug.



Old faded yellow begone!



Under sunlight, you can see a faint burgundy shade but indoors, it seems almost black.



It lasted for a few washes before becoming a pinkish brown for a brief 2 washes. Now it's a dark reddish brown which looks slightly pinkish under certain lighting and angles. The bluish tones disappeared quickly. It's also much darker than my previous hair colour so I guess I can delay my next retouch =x

My stylist, Coburn Soy, was very friendly and patient. He was the one who suggested this colour because I said I didn't want it to fade to be such a lala goldish yellow.



Actually I like this kinda brown hair colour but all the salons tell me that I can't get this colour. They always claim that a dark brown is the max that I can go. Is this true? =( 



Obviously NOT because Storm Hair Studio got pretty close when I went there last CNY. Except it was more orangey. Still loved it though.



Nicole also got a new haircut! She had straightened her hair previously so it's rather flat. To counter that problem, Coburn gave her a slanted hair style.



Will I be back? I'm not too sure.. The price is higher than Storm but I do prefer the staff at Belco. After going to the realms of darker hair colour, I think I still prefer lighter browns albeit the horrible golden yellow hair after.

I was initially lured into the pinkish brown colour available at Belco but was told it's not possible unless I bleached my hair first. I imagine it should look like a darker version of this :
