Pretty Gradient Tresses at The Comb Hair Studio


Many people know me as a safe person: I'm not a risk taker, I don't go out late and I don't like to do things TOO differently. I'm safe. So when it comes to my hair color, I've always believed that simplicity is key. I've got to admit, I've always admired those with kaleidoscope hair but it's never tempted me to do the same before.

However, the safe ole me has been blessed, because I've now found a way to have pretty colored hair that suits my demand for an evergreen style that is equally trendy - all thanks to The Comb Hair Studio!


The Comb Hair Studio

The Comb Hair Studio is tucked away in a prime corner on Club Street, it's exact address being:

12 Gemmil Lane, Singapore 069252
Nearest MRT Station: Telok Ayer

Their mission is to provide affordable yet quality-oriented services to meet the needs of both working professionals and fashionistas alike. They adhere to the maxim of attracting and maintaining customers through outstanding treatments, trendiest hairdos styled by their international team and relaxing salon ambience.


At the salon, John Masters' Hair products are used and sold. Their shampoo and conditioner is used for washing and conditioning hair during treatments and quality is assured with their organic properties for healthier tresses. Their boxes are made from recyclable material as well.


TWG tea is available to all customers in the salon and they have a wide range of flavors from Silver Moon, Eternal Summer, Jasmine Green and French Earl Grey. I'm personally a huge fan of Silver Moon and Jasmine Green! :) Talk about luxury and relaxation rolled into one.


The Process

This was my hair right before I started my treatment. Eck, it's pretty unsightly. No one's ever a fan of roots after all - which was exactly the point I made to my hairstylist, who is also a Senior Hairstylist at The Comb Hair Studio, Henry Yu.

He recommended a brighter color for my hair initially because he said that it could brighten up my skin tone and make me look fairer: this is a trick many Korean girls use as well. However, I countered with the fact I really hate it when I've got light-colored hair and my roots start to grow in making it all very unsightly.

So he thought it over, and came back to me with the idea to do a gradient in my hair from light to dark. This way, even when my roots grow back, it looks intentional with the dark-light-dark tones! I personally found that GENIUS so I said, "yeah let's do it!"


Henry chose a color for me between M9 and M11 as shown above, then he started to go to work.

This was by far the most interesting hair dye experience I've had because he never actually let the dye set till the very end, and by then it was only for 10 minutes or so. What he did was start from the top of my head, kept massaging in, then move on to the rest of my hair. He basically let the dye sink in the longest on the top part of my head, and made sure that the color REALLY absorbed there.

Only after 30 minutes or so, he moved on to the bottom half of my hair and then let the dye sit for a short while and washed it all off with John Masters' products. Because this dye is naturally protective of hair, I did not require a hair treatment after.


Here it is all blown out! It's a little hard to see since the ends are curled and my robe around is black, so I've shown a finished photo after below as well. :) The whole treatment took about 2 and a half hours including washing, drying and cutting - so do make sure you give yourself enough time.

Sorry for the weird lighting, I'm not sure why I couldn't fix it! :(
This is Henry Yu! He's from China but he's studied hairstyling in actual KOREA so he's totally up to date with the trends and techniques. If you want to bring out your Korean Vibes, don't hesitate to look for him! He's not only patient enough to understand what you want, he really makes the effort to go all out in achieving your dream hair! :)

P/S: You do need to speak a little Chinese with him because he's not that fluent in English, but the bright side is he understood my half-here-half-there Chinese so I think everyone is quite safe!


Final Result

This is my hair in all its glory in daylight! Tada! I'm not quite sure how Henry did it, but there seems to be a subtle dark purple tinge in the bottom of my hair from some angles and I've got to say it's stunning. STUNNING. I used to think my classic black hair was enough, how does basic ever go out of style right? Then I saw this, and now I'm worried I can never go back to simple haha!

Plus, thanks to the amazing hair dye they used which protected my hair, my tresses are actually soft and flowy without having done a treatment at the end. I can't actually believe this is how smooth hair can be after a chemical treatment, but I'm glad this is the result! Thus far, I've had many people come up to me, friends or comments on IG, saying that my hair looks great and they're in love with my color! I can literally skip with happiness! Our hair is our crowning glory after all, so why not take as great care of it as possible right? ;)

Once again, hats off to Henry for thinking of this amazing color combination for my hair, and a huge thank you!
