Toni&Guy, Patent House, Jalan Bukit Bintang, 15th October - 3.30pm
This lovely Saturday was indeed a great day for me as I was having a makeover (cut and color) session with local Chinese actress, Crystal Chooi. It would not have been possible if without the help of Toni&Guy KL team mates. Thank you David Mercer, Henne Mercer and William Wong; not forgetting all the staffs of Toni&Guy KL for making my Saturday an unusual one....
Crystal Chooi came in about 3.30pm and we made sure she seated comfortably in the nice ambiance of Toni&Guy salon on the top floor of Patent House, Bukit Bintang. Before I started the hair cut, I gave her a thorough consultation, showing her photos from our Look Book...our bible to latest hair styles. This is to ensure that she is fully aware of her new look.
During the consultation, I learnt that Crystal never dare to go very short as worrying that her face may look more round. With thorough explanation, I shown her few photos that shown her otherwise. I adviced her to cut short on both side of the ears but leave her fringe slightly longer; and that she may be surprised that actually the cut will keep her jawline more obvious and her face shape will be sharpen. Without much hesitation, she gave it a go and agreed to try it out.
After the consultation, Johnny (Assistant at TG shown as picture above) helped me to wash Crystal's hair; preparing her for the cut session.

After the haircut, I continued with the color session. Again before I proceed, a consultation was been carried out too - checking her lifestyle and work details. Crystal not only have video shoots but also have formal meetings with clients who needed her expertise in managing new movie or drama production. So I decided to give her a versatile hair color where she can have a party look and formal look at the same time... ..Crystal's initial hair color is cooper base with few big streak of light blonde. I decided to give her a matt ash medium brown as her base; with light ash brown highlight. I took the longest fringe on her right side and did 5 foils of highlight with light ash brown. It would be a huge streak of ash brown but the fun part was that the highlights hid underneath.

Once done, Crystal was led to the wash area to get her hair washed and conditioned.

I hoped I have given Crystal a more younger and fresh look. Look closely at her hair color. With her highlight streak hidden underneath her base color; she can have different hair color; either for party look or for formal look for work. If she styled her fringe to her right; it shown that her hair color will be just one color which is matt brown - a suitable look for work...However if she styled her fringe to her left as shown in the photo on the right; it shown that her hair was styled for more casual look..
I hope that Crystal Chooi likes her new look...
