Major Overhaul @ ZINC Korean Hair Salon
Feeling that your hair is dull and lacklustre for the upcoming Chinese New Year? Is your hair in need of a major overhaul for an event (i.e. wedding, anniversary or Valentine’s Day)? In love with the romantic hairstyles you see in Korean dramas? ZINC Korean Hair Salon is a must visit place for you who desire to have gorgeous tresses and world-class service 🙂
I am a sucker when it comes to dolling myself up. I’d rather spend the time and money on eating good food with Sweetie Muffin than spend it on beauty services like spa, facials, manicures etc.
I’ll only pamper myself to a hair overhaul during Chinese New Year or once in a blue moon, when I feel like it as I do not enjoy having my hair / face touched by others. I have had a terrible experience when a hairdresser hacked my long hair off in seconds before I could react to it and my heart was bleeding the moment I knew my long hair was gone
Hence I’ll only go to salons that I trust in short.
It was my good fortune to have found a great hair salon hidden in a corner of The Centrepoint and I was very impressed by the services provided (You might want to refer to my previous post on my Korean Setting Perm experience here: https://www.aldoramuses.com/vanity-muse-over-korean-setting-perm/).

However after half a year, my hair became a horrible tangled mess 🙁

|Uneven Hair Length 🙁|
|Ultra Thick Hair 🙁|
And worst of all…
The hair colour is very uneven – brownish at the bottom whilst my natural hair colour is on top…

Hence, I have decided to give my hair a MAJOR OVERHAUL at my favourite Korean Hair Salon – ZINC Korean Hair Salon @ The Centrepoint. I made my appointment via email and had Sweetie Muffin to drive me over to the Salon early this morning to get my hair revamped (they are pretty prompt in replying emails, but if you can’t wait, you can just give them a ring).
If you happen to be driving, there is a Youtube Video to teach you how to drive there.
If not, you may just alight at Somerset MRT and cross the road. The Centrepoint is just opposite 🙂

I was given a silky robe to wear once I arrived… Felt really comfy and dainty ♥♥ ~~~ Rany, my hairstylist, came and handed me the hair colour chart for me to pick my colour.
Again, I showed her one of the photos of a model which I have obtained on google and told her I wanted a hair colour similar to hers… So she recommended me to get some nice brown shades and I chose a deep golden mahogany colour.

My hair was rinsed again. I was grateful that they provided me a blanket as the salon can be quite cold after sitting there for a few hours…

Haircut by Rany
After my hair was blow-dry, Rany assisted to trim my tresses. I could feel that my hair was more manageable after the intensive steam treatment 🙂

The thing I love about Rany is that she is very meticulous and patient when it comes to hair styling. She will snip off every section of my hair with care 🙂
|Le’ Final Product 🙂|
I am again a very satisfied customer! I love this salon not only for Rany’s professional hairstyling skills, but also for their positive work attitude and great service. Also, we observed that there was great teamwork between the crew – every staff is willing to take the initiative to come over to assist (be it blow-drying or application of chemicals) once they have finished their existing tasks on hand. This is something that we do not see in most salons as most hairstylists would be found slacking or worse – dolling themselves up in front of the mirror whenever they are free. Rena did walk over to help blow-dry my hair after she helped another customer apply hair dye – I was indeed very honoured to be served by 3 people throughout my entire stay there 🙂
Last but not least, I was grateful to have the companionship of my supportive Sweetie Muffin who acted as my handy photographer throughout. Thank God for everything, Amen.
