I know I am already overdue for another trip to the salon when the roots of my natural black mane is showing and the tips are already dry. I dyed my hair in light brown twice and it complemented my skintone well, but it has been months since I last had my hair color treatment. It is just as well that I received an invite from Azta Urban Salon SM Jazz branch to try their Discover Ombre services.
Azta Urban Salon has been catering to the needs of young market, providing hip, stylish, and trendy hairstyles since 2004. With its reasonably priced treatments, personalized customer service, and well-trained creative team, Azta is becoming more popular to new urbanites’ demands to follow the latest trends in hair and fashion.
The day before my scheduled Azta Style Sessions, I was asked to choose from the seven ombre hair color that Azta is offering:
Guess what I chose?
Sombre is a subtle and softer kind of ombre with the art of low-light dimension coloring. This technique plays around with shades slightly lighter than natural base color for that wearable ombre look.
Requesting for a style peg, I sent a photo of Victoria from FX, a Korean idol group. I love how her hair flows smoothly and I do covet her bangs. I have a natural wavy hair and haven’t braved wearing bangs, but I want to try having one now.
When I arrived, I was greeted by Ms Meg, the marketing manager for Azta Urban Salon. She ushered me to my designated seat and I couldn’t help but be surprised in a very personal treatment I immediately received.
This cute frame was put in front of my chair. There is also the names of my styling team. Mr Jo, Micay, and Ced.
As soon as I was seated, I was asked my choice of beverage and was served with milk tea along with these sweet treats. Perfect!
MY SOMBRE EXPERIENCE
First, senior stylist Mr. Jo assessed my hair and planned how to go to my ombre treatment. I had digital perm more than a year ago which made my hair dry and damaged, so he recommended not to bleach my hair.
After that, Mr. Jo cut my long tresses. I think I waved goodbye to four inches of hair! He then styled my bangs, first in my entire lifetime. Next, I was ushered to their washing station. My hair was shampooed and conditioned by Micay and he has these gentle hands which massaged my scalp well.
Highlights for that sombre look was first applied then after some time, my hair was dyed up to the roots. Everything went smoothly and my styling team has the softest and gentlest hands that I couldn’t help but felt sleepy. Soon, it was time to wash my hair. Then, it was dried and styled. It’s time for the revelation.
I am very pleased to see my new look! It looks very polished and sophisticated. My mane becomes shinier and softer and the curls more pronounced. And oh, my bangs made me look different in a good way!
I wish I could look like this every day! I am in love with my new look.
I couldn’t help but look in the mirror several times to ensure that what I was seeing was real. The number of compliments I am receiving is overwhelming.
