Colored My Hair RED and PURPLE @ ICON by Shunji Matsuo for our Wedding Photoshoot!
TGIF chewy chewy friends! By the time you are reading this post, misterchewy and I are probably somewhere high up in the skies, on our way to The Land of Smiles! Yeah, Thailand, that’s right! :P We are off to Bangkok to eat, shop, sightsee and enjoy the traditional Thai massage! This short getaway shall be our well-deserved break after our wedding photoshoot on Monday. It was a blardy exhausting whole day affair. Woke up at 7am and reached the studio before 10am. Indoor photoshoot started at around 11.30am and we had a quick lunch before moving off for our outdoor shoot slightly before 3pm. I know some people don’t like to pose for photos but misterchewy and I enjoyed it soooo much! Kinda unbelievable that the photoshoot actually turned out to be very fun! Our photographer (who I think kinda looks like Gary Chaw) was a barrel of laughs and we didn’t feel tensed or uneasy throughout the shoot. In fact, everything went very smoothly! :D
Just for this shoot, I had to endure my irritating fringe for a few months because I was under the impression that my makeup artist (MUA) can create different hairstyles for me :P I never had such long fringe before! It’s around my mouth level now anyway. I also ditched my yellowish highlights in exchange for red and purple hair! :D :D :D Like I have mentioned before, I like to procrastinate and leave things till the last minute. Finally visited the salon a few days before the shoot, right after I got off from work. Was asking around for recommendations around Holland Village and dear Carrie from The Cambelles told me about ICON by Shunji Matsuo. Total damage was around $550 for two colors and Sherpa treatment. *Heartpain* Had to keep telling myself it’s justifiable for the shoot. Anyway my MUA kept saying the shade of purple is very ‘chio’. *Beams* :D
I settled for purple because I was sick of having different shades of brown since the first time I colored my hair about 6 to 7 years ago but more importantly, I wanted something wild for our wedding photos :P Chose a very dark shade of red to complement the purple because I didn’t wanna attract too much attention. LOL. Haha ya paradox lor I know. >_<
Hubby Chewy knocked off from work and accompanied me for the next 1 hour plus. The panorama photo of the salon was taken by him using iPhone 5! Actually most of the other photos in this post also la.
I don’t know what exactly is Sherpa treatment but I chose it because it was more expensive. Since I’m already spending money, might as well go for the best right? :P Besides, my hair needs it! Long hair is very hard to maintain and my hair is very dry at the ends. *sob*
It was agonizing having to sit in the salon for close to 4 hours but I think it was worth it! How to go work like that? Aiya I only colored the inside, somewhere near the back of my neck. Don’t really know how to explain but nevermind.
This is one of our looks for the shoot. Really happy and satisfied with our MUA because he knows exactly what I want! Too many people that we would like to thank – Our photographer, MUA, Katrina from Cold Rock Ice Creamery, The White Rabbit, Hans and Valerie from Backyard@Dempsey, Krist for my nails and also Maureen for helping out during the outdoor shoot. I posted a few sneak photos on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/missuschewy! We might be sharing updates on FB while we are at Bangkok as well, so keep a lookout! :D
