Chez Vous 20th Anniversary 20 Lookbook Challenge #5: Sydney
HIDDEN GALAXY HAIR COLOURS
DESIGNER: ASSOCIATE SALON DIRECTOR, SAM CHOK
TECHNIQUE: SAND ART HAIR TREND
Colouring your hair with crazy bright hues isn't exactly a new trend or phenomenon. Celebs like Katy Perry, Keisha, Rita Ora, and Kylie Jenner have been doing it for years. Even hunks are getting on the fun - Zayn Malik tested green, purple, and white on his crew cut - all within one week.
By now, you probably thought you'd seen it all when it comes to unnatural hair colours, but a new take on the trend brings prismatic-coloured manes to new heights. The best part is it takes direct inspiration from one of our favourite childhood pastimes: sand art. It's not hard to see why the trend is suddenly lighting up on many social media platforms; especially when it's popularized by Korean Style Icon - Irene Kim.
Tips: Always opt for bold colours. As, these colours will eventually fade to become everyone's favourite - pastel hues. It's much economical this way. Also, do apply a hair mask or conditioner on your hair before using shampoo to wash your hair. This way, it will better prolong your hair colours. That said, always be prepared that fashion shades tend to fade much faster compared to basic colours.
BEFORE & AFTER
Sydney, a lifestyle, fashion and beauty blogger, has recently joined a financial firm that requires her to have a professional looking image. That said, Sydney has always been a "wild" girl at heart. Hence, she wanted a hairstyle that allows her to sport a professional image when needed; and a "creative" and "unconventional" look off-work to showcase her punkish side.
Associate Salon Director, Sam Chok created inner panel highlights for her using the Sand Art Hair Dye Technique, mimicking the colours "seen" in the galaxy. This way, Sydney can easily "hide" the panel highlights during work and unveil them off-work or during parties.
BEHIND THE SCENES
Changing your hairstyle can be liberating, freeing and empowering. It is a cathartic experience that allows you to know yourself better; what you like or dislike, and explore a new "you". It might be the catalyst to spear change in the way you dress or put on your makeup too! Embrace it. Live life!
A positive transformation awaits you.
