a hair-raising experience

I’ve always wanted to play around with my hair styles, particularly with colours. Especially bright colours, like striking red, purple and even bright blue!

Unfortunately there is always one big barrier that I cannot seem to break through: MONEY T___T

Fortunately for me, a friend of mine, Mieko, had recommended me this particular hair studio. I had my doubts initially, mainly because the location was too far for me (it’s about an hour drive to arrive to their shop LOL). But I gamely took the chance since it was very affordable, the before-and-after results looked lovely, and well, friend’s recommendation ๐Ÿ˜€

Plus I was desperate for a hair makeover at that time heh.

Round One

This was actually a failed dye job. None of us had expected this chemical reaction on my hair, not even the hairstylists. Needless to say, the initial idea was to have a blue-black dye job. My hair was bleached before the dye was added on. Results was unexpected. I had sported a crown of ash-green in the end! Not entirely unsatisfying, but dang, not what I had expected either! XD

(I look horribly tired and old in this photo somehow LOL)

Round Two

I utterly love this look! True I had indulged a wee bit extra (bleaching, crazy colour, and standard package) but OMG so worth it! x3

For this round I had requested for an ombre dye; a subtle purple crown and blue tips. The effect? Gorgeous!

Round Three

My latest hair makeover. Not as complicated as the rest though, as this was just a ‘cover’ job hahaha ๐Ÿ˜› my old dyes were fading out (nicely, I might add) and I wanted to shed away the dullness. So I had requested for a simple dark violet dye (whole head, no extra frills). Since the tips of my hair were already bleached to begin with, the violet colour is more prominent there. My hairdresser revealed that he had also mixed a little bit of red for that subtle gradient wash on my hair, in which I am grateful for ๐Ÿ™‚

P/S: New glasses from O.W.L. hehehehe :3

Okay enough of my weird stash of selfie photos! I’m pretty sure you’re curious to find out more about this studioย that I’m raving about, yes?

Lo and behold~

luxureeqlabhairstudio can be found on instagram

Ta-dah! This is the hair studio that I speak of: Luxuree Q Lab Hair Studio. Unfortunately they’re only available on Instagram, but do check them out for the latest updates ๐Ÿ™‚

Remember when I said they’re affordable? It is because they really are! Their basic promotion package remains the same every month, though the pricing may differ. However, the package never goes past RM100 (unless you have chest-length hair, and even then it’s just an additional RM50 to the package).

The basic package being offered is:

dye (basic) OR rebonding OR relaxing OR perming


moisturizing hair treatment

(this is awesome by the way. Really kept my hair smooth and silky even after a bleach AND dye job!)



Total damage? RM60 (this month in June 2015). Now isn’t that affordable? ๐Ÿ˜€

Things to note:

  1. Strictly CASH ONLY
  2. If you’d like to, say, dye your hair AND perm it, the condition is to pay for TWO packages – one package for dye and one for perm.
  3. Bleach is of separate charge.
  4. Please call them up to book an appointment instead of dropping by unannounced. Common courtesy after all ๐Ÿ˜‰


Contact Number (for reservation) : 03-41417094

  1. I really like the third one. The purple one. Love the glasses too. Did you lose weight? That’s a lot of weight loss there between the first and third pictures.

    1. Thanks! I like my second dye the most, but wanted to go subtle for the third hence the dark colour hahahaha ๐Ÿ˜›

      Actually I gained weight instead of losing weight lol. It’s all about the angles when taking photos xD
