    Perm at 76Style~

    I have been follower of Cheesie for quite sometime and after the NHK show, I noticed Audrey too. I saw their recent sponsored post for 76Style and decided to try this salon on my recent trip to KL. You can take a look at the sponsored post by Cheesie and Audrey on 76Style~ This entry came when I was finding some hair styling place for the NAPBA. I asked honey to give them a call. I think honey panicked because the person in the line is speaking some Japanese. (This is what she told me la…)

    Still feeling a bit bitter not able to try their service, I decided to give them a chance to perm my hair. I have to say honestly I am super afraid that something might go wrong. Maybe the hair is too fashionable to my liking or hard to maintained like the previous perm I did. This time I decided to make the call myself, I decided to go Mid valley branch because it is nearer to my hotel~

    76Style at Mid Valley~

    However, since it is the eve of Christmas eve, I guess lots of people doing last minute shopping and the jam was terrible there. Not only is the traffic moving slow but the stupid traffic police refuse to let me into the midvalley exit!! I knew I was going to be late, so i called them and they said they will inform Hikkey. Kk had to detour and by the time I reach Mid Valley, I am 30 min late already. Another problem came, I am lost on mid valley. I alighted at The Gardens and I was totally lost there. I spend 5 min walking around and finally ask a retail assistant for help. It was then Kk finally found parking and we met and went to Mid Valley. By the time, we reached Mid Valley Megamall. I couldn’t find 76Style because I thought they are situated at Mid Valley Megamall. It turns out that they are at Northpoint Residences. I asked the customer service there and managed to find Northpoint Residences but I am confused numbering of shops. I asked the guard there, he is very nice to bring us to the salon. I went in and appologise for being late.

    Since I was late, I had to be slot in between customers. I waited for about 15 minute and while waiting I decided to flip some of the hair style book.

    This perm caught my eyes. I like the wavy-ness of the curves

    This is my 2nd option.

    I noticed this perm is suitable to all face type so this was my 3rd option.

    Hikkey is a Japanese but she can converse in some basic English. I can only converse with English with her as my Japanese is still Nursery standard. She can advise my perms and I told her I wanted a more obvious and volumerize perm. She told me that I can only do digital perm and I agreed. I asked for the pricing too and I think is reasonable so I went for the perm.

    After initial hair wash and the girl behind also have nice perm. I got few second wanted her perm because that is one of the perm Hikkey recommend for me too.

    Hikkey doing rollers on my hair

    Me with all the heated roller.

    I have to say, Hikkey and the staff have been very attentive to me and kept asking if it is too hot. Most of the iron were really freaking hot after sometime and they have to adjust again and again. By the time I was doing the hot roller, I was like more than 7.30 already. Most of the stylish still stayed back for me and I am really sorry for that.

    I have to admit the curls kinda of look like some ancient Shanghai woman in the 1930s.

    I am not so sure what was apply but some kind of liquid was apply onto my hair.

    Hikkey namecard and my 76Style membercard. They have some points system but not sure if there is any expiry dates~

    Good Comments from my favourite blogger too!~ Okay, I shameless tag them in twitter but didn’t expect they would reply me~

    Then they let me fill in a membership form and Hikkey was trying to use their simple English to tell me how to style the hair. Unfortunately, I only managed to understand half of it. It could be better if someone can help her with some translation. I also have a talk with Hikkey and the other Malaysian staff. I told them Audrey introduce Hikkey to me and I love the extension she did for her. At the end, they gave me a membership card and a discount because I quote Audrey and cheesie‘s blog.

    This is the photo that I tweeted and many of my friends said it is nice but need some highlighting.

    This is a mistake on my part because I forgot about the highlight part which I should also have booked but really by the time I finished was about 8+pm already and it has way passed their closing time. I did not go back for a highlight because they are also closed on 24 and 25th December. I am going back to Singapore on the 26th noon so I really dun have the time to go for highlight too.

    This is my hair for the dinner. I really just love this curls~

    Okay, one more camwhore photo.

    Thanks for reading~

    Difference in the Bella Boxes~

    I have to do a disclaimer first. I only start subscribing to Bella Box from November 2011 onward so I do not have any boxes earlier than that.

    Bella Boxes value feedback (or complaints) and improve on them. Actually the size of the boxes doesn’t really matter to me. I am more particular in the content of the boxes but I can see the effort and improvement to make Bella Box a better box. I do like smaller boxes as It is easier to store them. 🙂

    The box is much more smaller. It seems to drop a size smaller.

    More details of the difference in size

    The new box is also less thicker

    Comparison of the inner boxes.

    I have to say I do like the big outer box but it is because I used it to store my more cosmetic. However, I guess if I have too many of the old boxes, I would also find them bulky and useless. Therefore, I welcome the idea of saving the world with smaller box and lesser crinkled paper that is used cushion the products. I must say that the inner box is really of a better quality than old version. The texture is must smoother and not glossy. (I dun like glossy surface boxes) As for the design of the boxes, I love the simple and elegant design of the new boxes, the older design has more words on the outer box and stripe patterns on the inner box.

    Bella Box (January 2012)

    *This box is cropped from one of the photo because I forgot to take the photo and opened it*

    Today post shall only be about what is in the January Bella Box. There are some feedback from some customer that the boxes are big, bulky and not environmental friendly. Bella Box team really value these feedback and this month boxes was significantly smaller and more environmental friendly. I shall do a comparison in my blog post tomorrow.

    Showcasing the bella box for this month

    The introduction of this month beauty box~

    The outer box is still pink but the inside box had a simple design with only BB logo. The quality of the inner box seems better too. The surface is smooth and classy. Since the outer box is smaller, the inner box is also smaller. But smaller doesn’t mean lesser item. They still give 5 sample items to try but initially I did get a shock because when I open the box, I saw 3 items only because they wrapped 3 item in another pink wrapper.

    After un-tapping, belif product pamphlet…

    More details of the belif product pamplet…

    Tata~ The products in the January box…

    Eh… How come only 3 items?

    Tada~ You need to unwrap the pink wrapper~

    Detail product of the box as shown below (Left to right; top to down):
    1. Dr Jart Detox Healing Blemish Balm (SPF25 PA++) 15ml
    2. Herban Essentials Lemon Towelette
    3. Dr Dennis Gross Skincare Extra Strength Alpha Beta Peel Patented Two-Step Anti Aging Treatment
    4. Pangea Organics Lip Balm (Grapefruit and Sweet Orange)
    5. Belif Hydra Sebum Control Essence

    This month product is not as worth as the December’s box. I can’t believe that they include one Towelette  in this package, I have yet to try it but I don’t think Towelette has anything to do with beauty. I might not appreciate this item well because I think it is not suitable to be in this box. Maybe they just include as an additional item will be better.

    However, I am quite happy with Dr Jart’s BB cream as I have been wanting to try them for ages. The rest of the item seems quite alright for this box and I will review the items soon. I do hope that there can at least be one cosmetic item in every month’s box.
