My Beautiful Hair Makeover by Kevin Woo, Founder and Creative Director of Centro Hair Salon!

As you all know, I had a haircut last year and I went really short. Well it looked fine but not great because the hair colour is uneven, dull and looking unhealthy... basically my hair looking lifeless.

So I accepted an offer for a hair makeover at the Centro Hair Salon in The Gardens Mall, Midvalley last week. Afterall I had changed my hairstyle, why not giving my hair a new life by colouring?

The interior of Centro Hair Salon in Gardens Mall is in stylish black, giving a modern, chic and classy feel as I walked in! I learnt that they have different areas for different purposes which makes it is an exclusive affair for for customers to enjoy their hair being pampered!

As I sat down, I was offered coffee, tea and juice. I was then served with a chill cup of orange juice and a Hokkaido Chiffon Cupcake to keep my tummy happy! Oh their service!

I'm feeling like a princess, after getting a royal treatment from Kevin & his assistant Jay!

I heard of Kevin Woo name for the longest time and I get to know better from last year L'oreal Colour Trophy Award 2012. I was told that Kevin has came a long way before he was known as the winner of Winner of 2006 L’Oreal Color Trophy & 3 other subsidiary awards. He entered hair industry since 1990 and after returning from Singapore in 1998, he started a humble outlet at Sg Wang plaza in 2002 and later moved to Gardens Mall for re-branding in 2007. And now Centro Hair Salon has 3 outlets, one in The Gardens Mall and two in Suria KLCC Mall.

After Kevin looked at my hairstyle, skintone,personality and few other things, he recommended me to colour my hair red. He said it would make my hair looking alive and skin looking fairer than before! And that is exactly what I wanted!

After a good hair wash, Kevin started by highlight my hair using L'Oreal Professional Majirouge - Permanent Hair Color Magenta Red after carefully sectioning my hair.

 For the rest of the remaining hair, he used a mixture of L'Oreal Professional Majirouge - Permanent Hair Color Dark Blonde Intense Red & Light Brown Intense Indescent.

He said the result of the hair colour would be dimensional and the highlight will give texture to my hair and complements my whole look.
And just before the colouring, Kevin applied this L'Oreal Stillcap Scalp Protector on my scalp. He said that this is a pre-treatment before colour, which it will protect the hair scalp and reduce discomforts such as itching and stinging of my hair scalp. And true enough, I did not experience any itchy or stinging on my hair scalp during my colouring session! 

I didn't know L'oreal has this awesome stuff !

Looking like an alien during the colouring.

After my colouring is done, I can't wait to see my hair... but before that Kevin treat my new coloured hair with a mixture of Kérastase Pixelist together with Kérastase Concentre Fusio-Dose-Booster Polyphénols which is a highly concentrated protective treatment for colour-treated hair to ensure lasting color radiance and hair fiber repair.

And finally my hair makeover is done! 

 This is my before picture, looked how my hair looked dull, unhealthy and lifeless.

 Presenting to you, the Before & After picture! 

See how much a good hair colour makes such a big difference! 

It was such a perfect combination of colours and now I know why he is the 2006 L'oreal Colour Trophy Winner and he has celebrities clients such as Amber Chia, Daphne Iking, Lynn Lim, Jojo Goh, Atilia, Syafinaz Selamat and Vanidah Imran. 

My After picture (indoor lighting), from all angle. I love the first instant I looked into the mirror!
See the beautiful highlight that Kevin did, it was really nice & not too striking which gives just the perfect glow to my hair! The colours looked different from every angle, reddish, brownish and purplish too!

And I knew a hairstylist need to have certain skills & experience when comes to colouring, because one has to take into account of the existing hair colour, hair texture, hairstyle, skin tone, colour mixture and timing..and Kevin has it all!

Thank you Kevin & Centro team for inviting over to be the first blogger to enjoy the hair makeover & it was really an honour and I love looking into the mirror every now and then to admire my beautiful coloured hair!

My hair has a new life and this is the best hair colour I had so far. 

And it is just a month away from Chinese New Year, why not a hair makeover for yourself too!

p/s: And to those who asked me how much is the price of my makeover, with my hair length and the two tones hair colour ( colour & highlight) this cost around RM448.
