My Newly Curled & Colored Hair!

Finally! After over a year living with a head of seriously chemical free bad gray hair...

I got my big hair now. Yes!

What did I have to go through to get the hair?
Four hours of trimming, curling, & coloring...does this look painful?

It wasn't as bad as it looked...

I had a delicious lunch delivered from a nearby Vietnamese eatery (pork neck with eggs and beef soup and coffee), and I watched Step Up 3 and the Mirrors. Time flies when you're having fun.

When all the curlers had been released...

Before coloring...

...the gray hair almost looked like highlights, right?

I need to give my stylist, Ah Lam, a shout out. He specializes in Japanese hairstyle for girls. Unlike most stylists I've worked with, he understands exactly what I need (big puffy hair), he teaches us how to style our hair meticulously, he offers to trim my fringe free of charge and he never tries to flatten my hair (you won't believe how many stylists have done this to me). He made my big hair dream reality.

If you happen to be in town and you want to try his service (you may need an interpreter if you don't speak Chinese/Cantonese, SC did the interpreting to me), let me know and I'll provide his contact details.

Very nice!! I am too cowardly to commit to a perm, so just use hot rollers at home. Of course lasts only a few days!

Nice!! Love it. Too bad my hair is way too short (boy's cut). If not could consider to do it when I'm in hk in 2 weeks time ;)
