Thank God for Gawi
I bought a Groupon from this place and was originally hating the location but dear god this place is gold.
I wanted to be a redhead at first, and I explained it to one of their better hairdressers. He looked at my hair and asked me if I wanted to try ombre. Before I could ask my sister for a second opinion, he whipped out his phone and showed me 4 gorgeous photos of his satisfied customer's hair color. This guy really has magical hands. I immediately said yes.
He was preparing the red already when I changed my mind and said I wanted the top of my head light brown, and a transition to red at the ends instead. I fully expected him to be annoyed but he was smiling it through and said he'll do it.
I think he was looking for experimentation too, and wanted to see if he could manage that effect. Either way it worked out in my favor and I thanked all my gods for finding him.
Well men being men, he was rough with my hair but very professional at it. The whole process was pretty long but I had my book so it was bearable. Also helped that they had good music in the background. Also helped that I was seeing my hair color take shape.
When I was done washing and he took me back to my seat, I was ready to sob from the obvious color straining through my wet hair. I got increasingly excited and kept thanking him when he started blow-drying it, and he laughed and gave me curls with this magical comb (are his hands sheer magic or what) and I was the happiest girl in all of Singapore.
Thank God for Gawi, I am definitely coming back here.
