Hair Review: Getting the Chop @ Tsiknaris Hair, New Farm

I was never intending to “get the chop”. I have been dying to get back into the hair salon to get my hair re-shape, trimmed, and overall freshened up. I wanted to refresh, that’s why I seek out the Tsiknaris brothers again to take care of my hair, and boy, did they do such impressive work. Again! I was bummed I had left my SD card in my laptop, so I had to resort to my phone camera. I also had forgotten to take a photo of my excessively long “before” hair… my hair was almost down to my waist, with layers past the chest area. Long.

You can read about my very first experience with Tsiknaris Hair here, where I talked in depth about the steps to recreate the boho wave look with my kind of hair.

This time, I told Bill and Chris that I want an update. Something that would suit my face shape, skin tone, that sort of thing. Chris even noticed how earthy my colour scheme is. Hah! Good thing too, he picked just the right hues to update the colour of my hair. I said, “Sounds good!”

I told Bill I wanted something with volume and that oomph feel, without having too much wispy layers at the bottom (totally do not suit my look). I also said, to rid of the unnecessary weight but still having the feel of ‘long’-ish hair. Tricky, huh? But you know what, they get it. Spot on. Bill suggested some looks, and told me his ideas about it. I said, “Go Ahead!”

Can’t believe it is already the second last week of the first month of 2014… time has just flown by like no tomorrow, let me tell ya. I’ve been so busy off my feet and distressed brain, sick with fever, sore throat, sinus all that jazz… my apologies for the lack of post.

Here I just want to showcase some products I thought are worth mentioning, seeing that it is the new year and all, new products resolution. I’m always on the lookout for longwearing, longlasting product, and for them to even withstand the Queensland summer heat is an added bonus. If it doesn’t, oh well, but when I thought I should give up… I came across these products that had just wow-ed me so much I have to share it.
