~ the long-awaited haircut ~

07 May 2009

look! i just lost about 30+ centimeters of my hair… and i love it!

new haircut - before and after

i have soooooo been waiting for this haircut. for months and months, i debated with myself (and sometimes with ari) whether i should chop by hair. i was bored with the haircut, and i hate the straightening effect from the re-bonding treatment i did about a year ago… bad mistake. will never do that again.

today, i finally decided to make an appointment with my hairdresser, only to find out that he’s away on vacation for two and a half weeks… what a long vacation! and by the time he gets back, i’m already gone for New Zealand… gah.

so, i took a chance and made an appointment with another hairdresser in the same salon (Tony&Guy)… can’t you tell that i’m that fed up with my long hair? the Singapore’s weather helped me making my decision, too…

a few other things:

  • my hair is now wavy… very wavy! supposedly, people’s hair change after they give birth. before i have aina, my hair used to be really straight. but now, with all the straightening effect is gone, i can really tell that it is wavy… hello cowlicks!
  • i think i look better and more fresh in short hair, although i’m more photogenic with long hair… (although that photos above doesn’t really agree with this statement…).
  • as soon as i got home and looked in the mirror, i sense a de javu… hey, i did this seven years ago! on the same month, too!
  • aina was confused. when i still had long hair, i tied it in ponytail almost all the time. aina doesn’t like me in ponytail, so she often tell me to “take it off” — as in “take off your hairband”. when she saw the new haircut, she told me that she liked it. “bagus!”, she said, which means “good”. but about an hour to two later, she kept telling me to “take it off”… i had to show her over and over again, that there is no hairband, and the long hair is gone…. uh oh.

Love it! Who did this for you at T&G? My fave guy there is Danny.

i’m usually with Alan, but he was away on vacation… so today, Veena did this for me. i actually don’t know which one is Danny…

I thought Veena left a long time ago. I guess she’s back now, then. Interesting :-)

T&G holland village, shin… yah, gue kan kalo pergi ga jauh2… hehe. dulu, hairdresser gue pindah ke bishan. gara2 jauh, jadi males kesono. ganti deh ke yang ini.

T&G mahal ya?

thalia | 8 May 2009 - 01:04 | reply

berapaan emang kalo potong rambut, thal?

kalo di compare ama jakarta, T&G pastinya mahal. tapi emang T&G mahal sih..

sLesTa | 8 May 2009 - 01:26 | reply

kemaren ini $80… emang gue pake senior stylist sih. di salon2 lain jauh lebih murah. yang di bishan (which i still loooooove, but it’s just too far), potong ama yang punyanya cuma $45. di fareast plaza, $35 (sayangnya yang ini hairdressernya pindah tempat, ga tau kemana… dan dia ga bisa bhs inggris!).

Gue juga biasanya bayar segitu kalo di T&G dan berhubung mahal & jauh, sekarang gue motongnya di reds yg di PP. I found a really good stylist there and it costs me so much less than T&G, both costwise and time.

Shin, kalo minat kesana, namanya Roger. Just tell him you’re my friend.
