So…. I really needed a change. Not just mentally but literally, physically I needed a change. I wanted to get my hair done. I’ve been wanting to get it done for a while but things came up. I had stuff to take care of, we had a funeral to attend, etc etc family matters were our first priority so “getting the hair done” was the last thing to do on my list.
I wanted to get a bright blonde #balayage done but I knew that would have to take a couple of sessions, so I went for a bright ash tone.
I got my hair done at Studio Monique (designer MJ) in Hong Dae. MJ is literally the balayage and ombre expert in Korea. She worked in LA for about 4 years and came to Korea with her specialized skills.
Foil work in the process.
MJ was really precise and careful with her work.
Although she’s only been at Studio Monique for just about a year, it seems like she has a pretty solid list of clients who support and love her work.
Basically what this does is, it rebuilds your hair and strengthens it from within. Not just making it strong on the outside of your hair but making it so that it goes into the hair stem and reconstructs it for a smooth and healthier look.
The stylist takes a look at your hair to determine which treatment level is fit for your hair.
Then once the process begins, it only takes about HALF AN HOUR TO 45 MINS for the treatment!!
When the product is applied, they use a COLD flat iron to help the absorption of the product. Last time I checked, my flat iron used heat. I mean it became HOT to straighten my hair. This iron that they use at the salon is a COLD iron…!!!!!!! So cooool~
I was fortunate enough to enter an Instagram contest for a chance to experience this PRO|FIBER hair treatment at SALON VIM.
