I WANT TO DYE MY HAIR. *firm and resolute tone*

The straw that broke the camel's back came last night when I saw my bestfriend's hair in a very lovely shade of mahogany brown with delish caramel highlights. It looked so divine glowing in the light by the pool.

But the thing is, what colour should I dye?

Its not that I don't like my hair colour now, I am pretty satisfied with black. Heck, I've had it for 19 years. Also, the best colour that suits you is usually the colour you were born with.


I'm thinking of dyeing my hair in a dark colour because I'm pretty fair. My face, that is. Can't say the rest for my body. Yeah, I know I'm duo-toned and weir.

Did some research and I think I will be dyeing my hair at Clover Salon or Maison Hairmake in Far East. Both are highly recommended. So I hope it turns out well.

Will post a picture here after I finish provided it does not look like a disaster.

I'm willing to pay slightly more for my first time as I am a highly cautious person and very particular when it comes to my hair and skin. Thus, I would prefer my first dye job to NOT be BOTCHED.

Anyway like any sensible and responsible person, I googled and found a picture. I like this colour.

Note: Like me, she has pretty fair skin, although she's a little more cool-toned instead of the warm fair tones that Asians have. A rosy pink under-tone instead of the more sallow yellow undertones of Asians.

Or something close to this colour.

And I want to cut my hair shorter like this.

On the RIGHT. *Credits to er, unknown girl on Flowerpod? Thank you for posting up your picture.*

Anyway my hair kinda looks like the left now as you can see from my user picture on the sidebar. Unkempt, messy and a generally can't-be-bothered look.

Okay, hope I don't look sallow and unhealthy in dyed hair or something.

I need moolah.

Wondering if I should take up the waitressing job at a cafe with dear Irene or go to Recruit Express in a vain attempt at finding another job. Or go back to my old company where my boss and colleagues were really nice to me and loved me. Thats what everybody has been telling me to do now.


I can't stand this tai-tai life anymore, hanging around and just doing nothing.

Anyway, going to the ICA with Henry tomorrow, need to turn in early. Goodnight everyone!
