[Getting me some French Brown Hair] Best Ash Brown Hair Ever from J7Image Singapore: An Honest, Non-Sponsored Review






PENDULUM, THAT'S HOW I GAUGE MY HAIR COLOR FOR QUITE SOME TIME NOW. FACT IS, ITS EQUILIBRIUM POSITION & MY CHOICE OF COLOR HAS NO CONNECTION - BOLD TODAY, LACKLUSTER THE VERY NEXT.




FOR A CHANGE, I GOT ME A french brown hair, an UBER NICE SHADE OF ASH BROWN




If you think I only say the good stuff about a hair salon just cause it's sponsored or I'm its Ambassador, you're dead wrong.

It's a first for me to pay a visit at a salon which is located inside a mall (Far East Plaza). I avoid this type of salons actually, I prefer those which are stand-alone. But you know, I have a gut-feel going on when it comes to my hair and I knew I made the right choice of choosing 

J7Image.





My main purpose? A colour rescue. To fix my then fading Royal Blue hair (click here). I was just glad I did NOT color my entire hair BLUE, ZOMG! or else I'd go nuts. I didn't like how it faded on me! I merely thought it would somehow fade to a lighter shade of chestnut brown but it fuckin' did not. Bummer! 





So here, lemme share my experience upon my visit at J7 Image.




appointment/scheduling

I sent them an sms to set an appointment in the afternoon but there was no confirmation received from them. So I personally went down to the shop itself at night time since I was in the area and I needed to fix my mane ASAP due to an upcoming event. I was assisted by Stylist Jayden and he was accommodating with my questions and all. So there, I was penciled in for 12 noon the next day.



space/location

They're located at the 5th level of Far East Plaza (Orchard Road), it was easy to spot. When I went in, man - it's a hushed little oasis in the corner of the FEP itself, the location and space couldn't be beat. What is spacious and is that minimalism I sense? Hmm. Clean, laid back and minimal. This is what just I was looking for in a salon. White walls, faux grass design - nothing too busy. Not an intimidating salon and it's a place you'll feel comfortable even if you're a walk-in customer.

ACTUAL DAY OF VISIT

My appointment was 12 noon and I think there were only 2 customers inside when I arrived. Again, Jayden welcomed me with a smile and brought me to the lounge first. The wait was quick. He gave me a locker to place my bag. Yes, a frikkin' locker! Okay, that's really cool.

Then I was escorted to my seat.



He then asked me what type of drink I'd want in which I replied with, "Just a cup of warm water please."  After a few minutes, this is what was placed on my table. 




let's appreciate the small things in life shall we? a cup with a legit topper and not a flimsy cover. At least my drink would stay warm a bit longer. 

i got an easy access to their wi-fi, 
of course, the terms & conditions we always ignore so check that. lol
pretty fast browsing too.





Jayden had a chat with me on what I intended to do with my hair. After a thorough talk, we settled for the shade Ash Brown. He was so confident in recommending the color and said that it'd look great on me.  I actually wanted the Golden Nude Brown but I also asked for his opinion and again he mentioned that the Ash Brown is still the perfect shade for me. I wasn't really up for any more loud colours, I'm just well, too jaded. 

Peachy pink, royal blue, marsala red - I wanted a tamer color this time around and a French Style Brown sounded legit to me. I know I'm always prone to loud colors but I wanna start a renewed love affair with the muted colors from now on. 




Jayden assured me that I could go for a single color and not regret it. 

He endorsed me to Jeft as he will be the one doing my hair color. I didn't have any idea that he was one of the owners until I've managed to pick it up while we're chatting. Jeft, the Salon Director is an easy guy to talk with. He gave me tons of tips and tricks about hair maintenance, styling and the whatnot. 


You know I was so not in the mood to document this day actually, so I wasn't able to snap a lot of pic for you guys. I think it's really like that for me - when I wanted something serious to be done to my hair I'm so focused and don't wanna get distracted.


The hair coloring is inclusive of a hair treatment - not the best I'd say but one of the best experiences I had when it comes to relaxation inside a salon. That moment when I laid my head back on the salon treatment bowl was amazeballs. I had a warm towel on my nape after Jayden massaged my hair/head with the treatment. I think that was even better than having to sit on a massage chair. Jeft was always there, checking on me from time to time. 




He even caught me selfie-ing and scolded me, "Ah, ah, ah! Told you to relax and rest, not play with handphone!" in which I really find a very sweet thing to do. 






results


Totally loved it! The ash brown stood out even more like I have separate highlights done! Great piece of work by J7Image here. It's like hitting 2 birds with 1 stone noh?! Couldn't be happier with the results. As an added note, I went on to ask Jeft about my hair loss - I think with too much stress my hair is going extra craaayy too! He suggested that I get this Organic Shampoo which I've paid for about $34. 






nitty gritty


Jeft offered a hair trim but I declined. Then he stopped there. You know how other stylists will repeat themselves and ask you again as if you're making the wrong decision? Ahh, just glad he never tried to ask me again. 


What I love about Jeft more is that he didn't do hard selling, he suggests products yes, but he will tell you to check your products at home first before plunging into buying. He will also tell you that he can persuade you in buying multiple products all at once but he was honest enough to tell me if they'd work or not depending on the condition of my hair and my current routine. Honest guy, a total keeper.  


just had to share this!

I chanced upon this customer's comment on their FB page as well as J7Image' reply. Other businesses will just ignore this, if they reply they will most likely say thanks for your feedback blah blah blah and we'll improve on our service.

But here you can see that they wanted to correct their mistake by cordially inviting the customer to revisit the salon. Hello, customer service recovery still exists! For the love of me, I thought they were 6-ft under the ground for ages.






pricing

Average for the area price I'd say. This is in Orchard after all so I think their pricing is reasonable enough.  




My experience at J7 left me grinning like an idiot the whole darn day. 






toilet selfie haha. i just wanted to see what it looks like under fluorescent lighting. 



getting toasted under the sun.
fuck the sun, i just mad love it!

 


 and the selfie continues at home, with natural lighting, yessah 



THanks for the wonderful service & color, j7image esp. to jeft & jayden! never been so satisfied with having brown hair before! hope to see you guys again soon x
