Changing your look with the seasons has long been a thing in the world of fashion, but we think you should change it up whenever it feels right, and 02 Hair Studio can definitely help you out with your hair transformation
Here at Honeycombers Hong Kong, we’re always looking for stylish new things. From the latest cruelty-free makeup to wonderful Hong Kong fashion designers and the best Hong Kong staycations – we want to experience it all! So when 02 Hair Studio suggested that I make a visit, I decided it was time to throw caution to the wind and opted for a shaved head and pink hair. Find out why.
A visit to 02 Hair Studio
The great thing about 02 Hair Studio is that they do a colour consultation before your actual appointment, to make sure that they understand what you want and that your expectations are realistic.
When I showed my stylist Robbie my picture of Jessie J with pink hair, both he and I were under no illusion that she woke up like that. A tight buzz cut with pastel pink colour is not something that lasts long, and even as I write this – two weeks later – my dark hair is already coming back in.
What Robbie did say was that he could get it pretty close, and that it would last about 10 days, and that’s all I wanted to hear!
A few weeks later, I returned to the salon where Robbie started by shaving my head. Having had short sides for years already, this was something I had always wanted to do – my Everest if you will, and he made some lovely Flock of Seagulls-esque styles as he lobbed it off. I expected all the weight of the world lift off my shoulders when this was finally complete, alas this was not the case. But I fell in love with my buzzcut immediately. #freedom
Next up, Robbie made me blonde (and put me under this very sci-fi steamer to keep the short hair moist while colouring) before applying the beautiful pink colour: Instamatic by Colour Touch in Pink Dream – a Wella product. Around 20 minutes later, we washed it off, and I was a new person!
What’s it like now?
I can honestly say that this is one of my favourite hairstyles ever. I don’t have to think when I leave the house, and Robbie went in with these tiny Japanese clippers to give me a very close shave that won’t need to be touched for a while. As for the colour, it was totally fun while it lasted, and it’s obvious that Robbie knows his trade. I would suggest anybody who wants a vibrant or natural-looking colour to swing by 02 Hair Studio – there’s a reason they’ve been in business for 20 years in Hong Kong!
