The reason I think Caucasian people have trouble here with highlights and dye is because Caucasian hair reacts faster than Asian hair so if a hairdresser hasn't done much Caucasian hair they'll leave the stuff on too long and you'll end up with dry hair..........which has happened to me several times!

That's why it can be better (and safer for your hair) to go to someone who has a lot of Caucasian customers - which unfortunately can mean a higher price tag.

I sometimes go to the Kimage hair school (when I'm feeling a bit strapped for cash) because it is really cheap, but I often end up having to have a good cut a few weeks later because the ends are too dry - fortunately hair grows quicker in the tropics so it's not too bad if you have to go shorter than you usually would :?

Hi ellamaria

Does Linda get right down to the scalp with the dye? I've been to a couple of people (1 here) who just didn't get down to the scalp so I left the salon still having dark roots! Also, does she weave the hair? She has to. Please tell me she does.

Thanks!

Why there two threads on exactly the same subject, posted the same week?

Hi beladona

I went to Linda and thought she was great. She does very fine foils and gets right down to the roots. She doesn't use bleach, which is what I'm used to, so I'm probably not as blonde as I usually am (something no-one else would notice) but in saying that I'd definitely go back to her. She was lovely and gave me a great haircut - I went from very long to very short! She gets booked up pretty quickly as she's a one-man band and is going on holidays soon so won't be back until mid July, but her mobile number is 9436 5565. She has an ad in The Finder. :)

Beladona, in case you want to use bleach, Linda does use it. I checked with her. Can't wait to go back to her now I know she's going to do a great job! :)

I've been getting my highlights done for years and I could never find a stylist who would get them right, or make recommendations for what would best suit me.

But last year, I met a colourist who does amazing work with highlights. He chose the right shades and tones to make them stand out without being overpowering, & it was brilliant.

He's recently switched salons & is at the Toni & Guy branch at East Coast. And he's looking for Caucasian hair models, so I'm trying to kinda help him out. For the next month or so, he's charging $20 for any colouring style (I'm getting my highlights retouched this weekend).

:D

Toni & Guy East Coast

Postby SharonaM » Mon, 15 Aug 2011 11:58 am

I just booked the colorist at Toni & Guy jtklassen recommended.

How was he? Did he do a good enough job? I'm blonde and just need a touch-up for dark roots. Pretty straight forward.

If anyone has other recommendations for a good place in East Coast that would be fantastic! A good cut is hard to come by for fine hair.

Thanks

Jackie here... I would also love to know how the colorist at Toni & Guy did on your hair and, if you don't mind, the cost too. I'm very new to Singapore and my hair is shedding a lot as I age, so I really need someone good. Thanks so much!
