My hair was getting out of control and starting to resemble a bird's nest. I knew it was time for the inevitable haircut. I used to cry about having to chop off my hair since I love my long hair – it always looked so pretty when I curled it. However, my hair was really getting out of hand, getting tangled from being damaged beyond repair, and the roots looked so ugly! I asked around for salon recommendations, and my friend suggested I go to Rex at Hair Toto Group.
Upon entering, the staff greeted me warmly and gave me a cup of water to combat the summer heat. Rex proceeded to look at the two photos I had prepared, one with the subtle ombré style and one with a beautiful chestnut color. He then worked his magic – evened out my hair to a beautiful dark brown, painted on bleach for the ombré look, and lastly toned the bleached parts to a rich red hue. The outcome was a beautiful blend of black, burgundy and gold like a mysterious black orchid. I was so amazed, my hair has never looked more beautiful!

He graduated from Vidal Sassoon which explains why he has such a good sense of color. Without me asking, he gave me a shade darker than the photos I showed since he knows after a few washes my hair will be as light as my references, therefore I can keep the color for a longer time.
After my happy hair session, my photographer friend, George Liaw, helped me shoot some beautiful shots, retouched by me. Top Forever21 | Skirt Boutique | Lipstick ColourPop x Urban Decay ombre
