Did Wash and Blow by Senior Stylist (Ladies)
Went for Wash and Blow by Senior Stylist (Ladies)
Highly recommend this salon for treatment and colour!
The first time I went there was for treatment, and I gotta admit that I didn't expect much from a salon at far east plaza (because of the many horror stories i heard from friends who does hair at far east plaza). Little did I know, I was in for a pleasant surprise.
After the treatment, my hair was so soft and smooth. That last 2 weeks. After that my hair was still more manageable as compared to pre-treatment. Other treatments I tried previously lasted only a few washes.
I agree with the others that the salon was small, but when I visited this year (after CNY), they have already expanded to a bigger salon space just a couple of shop away from their original one. So now, Artica has 2 shop spaces a stone's throw from each other.
The second time I went down was for a hair dye, again I didn't have high hopes because my hair is very damaged from rebonding and daily blowdrying.
The colour turned out vibrant and as I wanted, but what surprised me the most was that my hair felt more nourished as compared to pre-dyeing. I dont know how is that possible because dyeing hair is supposed to make your hair more damaged but that is not the case with this salon.
I think the chemical they use is really good quality, and the prices they charge is reasonable.
Treatment - $140 Fiore Japan (something like that)
Dyeing by Juno - $100+ dont remember exactly.
Awesome place to do color hair dye n hair treatment. It's my 2nd visit here n I love it. Get your hair filled with funky n trendy colors for the festive season :)
Friendly staff, cosy environment, good skills.. Whats more can we ask.for... Thanks Terry for giving me faith to cut short hair once again!
Happy w the outcome of the colors I wanted! Affordable and competitive prices! Great works !! __
This is my 4th visit to artica and they never fail to impress. It's tough finding a hairdresser who understands what you expect and actually delivers. My stylist, Bell does a great job every single time and artica is the place to go for bold, creative and beautiful hair coloring. :D
Indeed a good work done..never go wrong hair salon! Will patronize again..
Juno did a great job for my hair... love the color... will definitely go back to have my hair done... Thanks Juno and team!
What I Love
My hair stylist is Bell. The salon is pretty small but whats more important is the staffs attitude. I was late for 15 minutes due to jam on expressway but none of them gave me attitude. They are really very friendly. Bell is very patient to explain the type of hair dye and result. Hair was done for 5 hours and i love the effect. Price is reasonable.
What I think can be improved
Small space but it doesnt really matter to me.
Will love to go back again to try other colours.

Oh Yes! Finally had the kind of hair colour i want.
I did contemplate for a while whether or not should i go for extra-ordinary colours such as ash green, blue, block red, or pink. In order to ensure that my company allowed, i even asked my boss if i was able to dye my hair (Well, image plays a very important role!). Surprisingly, he said: I dont care ~!
Well, thats where i decide to go for a change.
Book my appointment at
Artica Hair Studio
The salon was fully booked on Saturday. Due to an accident on PIE, i was late for 15 minutes! I called up to inform of my lateness (I am responsible!) Though i was late, none of them showed me attitude but welcomed my warmly. As i did not had my lunch, i packet Old Chang Kee Curry puff and had them in the salon.
My hair stylist was Bell. She was very nice! She patiently explained the type of hair colour techniques and the results. I did not have much questions as I knew what i wanted and so.. it all begins
Bell divides my hair in section and started bleaching them layer by later.
Those aluminum on my hair.
Meantime, enjoying my old chang kee
As it takes time to bleach my hair, i took out my curry puff and started eating away. I was glad that none of the stylist stopped me from eating and neither the customer sitting next to me felt disturbed by my food. I was really hungry X.X
My face goes :\\
The bleaching process was almost completed.
Saw the patch of hair which had been bleached.
After she washed out the chemical on the bleached hair, she continued to apply violet hair dye on my hair.
Putting layer and layer of aluminum on head
After applying the violet, Bell put on the plastic over my head and brought over the heater. Though i had no idea what was that heater for but i didnt like the heater. I felt the heat was over my whole head, felt like scorching sun burning my head without hair. I tried to sit away from the heater as i felt really uncomfortable.
After washing off, i did treatment.
I know my head is very round.
Xiong had his haircut already and was waiting for me to finish. The hair treatment lasted 20 minutes (10 minutes for step 1 and 10 minutes for step 2).
He was so tired that he tried to sleep at the salon.
When the treatment was over, the final step: Hair cut!
And the final result is
Chocolate base and block violet.
The colour really shows when i tied up my hair
Bell told me that the purple would first fade to pink before turning blond.
I lomo the photo to make the colour appear obvious
