It’s the time of the year again! It’s our favourite season at Hairloom: Chinese New Year. Time to catch up with family and loved ones, and to take a much needed break. But for many of us, being the beginning of the year, it’s also a very hectic time. We understand that it may be hard to carve out an entire afternoon to devote to making your hair look pretty! Here are 3 quick hair ideas that take 90 minutes or less.

For: the busy professional who just wants to show off shiny, healthy hair:

Intensive Hair Treatment

You Yi Intensive Hair Treatment

This do-it-all intensive hair treatment only requires 45 – 60 minutes of your time. It’s able to remove residue and impurities that may be missed during your normal shampooing routine, while restoring valuable nutrients like collagen and protein to the main shaft of the hair. Finally, the hair shaft is sealed to ensure all the good stuff stays locked in. Depending on your hair length, the price ranges from $180 – $220. The effect lasts for at least 2 to 3 weeks, so doing it now will ensure peak shiny smoothness this CNY season!

What is Color Butter? Specially formulated in Japan, it’s a hair treatment-meets-DIY hair colour cream, all in one magical tub. Made from 6 nourishing natural ingredients (including Cupuacu butter from the Amazon rainforest, a nutrient-rich cocoa butter) Color Butter can restore rich color to your hair while making it silky smooth. This is great for those who don’t have 5 hours to spare at the hair salon – or just don’t want to splurge on a colouring session at the salon just yet!

Hairloom Color Butter Colour Butter Keshet

All you have to do is to wash and shampoo your hair as usual, then apply the Butter directly onto your hair. Wait 15 – 20 minutes for the colour to take, and wear a shower cap to maximize the treatment effect. Wash it off, and voila! Colour AND a hair treatment, in less than 45 minutes. It’s perfect for the times in between salon visits when you just need a quick pick-me-up. A tub can last you for six months or more!

Available in 24 vivid hues. $58 per 200g tub. Click here to shop

Hair cut by any one of our stylists

Here’s a tip: schedule your cut at least a week before CNY so that your hair grows out a little and doesn’t look so ‘raw’ and new when you’re doing your visiting. Giving it a few days allows it to settle and look its best.

A great haircut is the key to building the foundation for fuss-free hair: we work with your hair type, hair texture, personal style as well as your lifestyle when designing a cut just for you. Some styles look great in the salon, but are hard to achieve on your own. That’s because some stylists like to mask a bad haircut by doing lots of styling – but that’s not us!

If you’ve been struggling with managing your hair on a day to day basis, we’re the ones to call. We will work with you for a look that’s easy to style, from Chinese New Year and beyond. Make 2017 your best (hair) year yet!

P.S., if you are struggling with humidity or daily styling, we also recommend our Glam Palm.

Wishing you a Happy Chinese New Year and a prosperous, harmonious year ahead!
