It is not as if it had a life but it means a lot to me. I was afraid of cutting my hair short especially in the careless hands of some stylist. But recently, I summoned enough courage to cut my hair. I have always admired girls with shoulder length hair and loose waves curls, constantly imagining myself in a haircut like that. Developing a phobia after an extensive period of not cutting my hair, I had to get someone skillful.

Without a second thought, a name popped up in my mind, Kizuki + Lim. Kizuki + Lim is a Japanese salon renowned for being second best salon in Singapore. I was ushered to my seat and asked about what hairstyle I was going for when I came through the door. I uncomfortably pointed to a picture I found on the internet. I was afraid but curious how it would turn out. They washed my hair before sitting me down and snipping off my hair. My hairstylist OBA could tell I was queasy and afraid. He took the first snip of my hair and gave it to me as a memento. The first snip was difficult for me. I eventually grew tired of staring hard at the mirror and grew sleepy. My eyes closed from time to time, until I received a tap on my shoulder and was told that it was done. I opened my eyes and was happy with the results but it lacked volume. It was time to transform my hair into ramen with the help of Japanese chef OBA. After putting multiple rollers in my hair and lining it up like California rolls. My hair perming session started. It felt really heavy and was glad that it will be over in a matter of minutes. In a bit, ramen was served up and I went for another rinse before finally blow drying my hair. When my hair was blown dry and styled it was beautiful and silky just like the one shown in the photo. I was elated, this was probably the best bowl of ramen I will ever have and I am going to stick it to my head. Loving my new bob perm hair so much!! 

I realised that the hair not only brightened up my face but the entire outfit along with it. This made me ecstatic for the Hari Raya Pussa sale coming up on Zalora. The Lace fit and Flare dress is stunning, it is body hugging and has a beautiful lace surface. This can be easily paired with a pair of shoes from Melissa, Nine West or Steve madden which could be found from the site. I can’t wait to start shopping.

  2. I got my haircut when I was in Japan over winter break! I also chopped it off to a long bob. My mom was telling me how I looked so much more youthful, but I don't know if that's a good thing or not, because I'm only 18 haha. Anyways, I'm loving your new haircut! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's
