My Reading Room

If you’ve been in search of #hairgoals on Instagram, it’s safe to say there’s no one particular trend that women are fixated on anymore. So regardless of whether you prefer subtle accents to accentuate your complexion or are looking for a total hair transformation with a head-turning shade, we’ve hunted down the salons where you can get the most expertly crafted dye job—including for those with sensitive scalps, thanks to treatments such as DRx’s Organic Color Therapy. Choosing appropriate products for at-home care is just as crucial. For example, John Frieda’s Brilliant Brunette range has been specially formulated to cut brassy tones and revive brown shades. Those on the opposite end of the colour spectrum can opt for Kevin Murphy’s Blonde.Angel series, which is infused with purple pigments to keep blonde hair shiny and vibrant.


Best Colour Service – Natural

PH Natural Colour, about $150 for two hours, Project Hair

Boasting warm and welcoming service along with professional expertise, we particularly loved the in-depth consultation with the stylists, which made us feel comfortable and well-informed every step of the way. The colour service is also particularly gentle on hair as it respects the natural pH of the hair and scalp, thus minimising any irritation. We also loved the special touches like a comprehensive drinks and snacks menu.

Best Colour Service – Bold

Royal Grey, from $380 for three hours, PREP Luxe

Going grey can be a tedious process—after all, you have to subject your hair to multiple rounds of bleach before grey pigments can be added. Which is why it is important to choose your stylist wisely. Ask for Den, PREP’s in-house expert, who meticulously examines your hair and scalp condition before determining the optimal concentration of lightening agents to achieve maximum results with minimum damage to your tresses.

Best Organic Colour Service

Organic Color Therapy, $220 for two hours, DRx

Perfect for those with irritation-prone scalps, this ammonia-free hair colour service uses natural ingredients to push colour pigments into the hair shaft without causing any discomfort. It is also great for covering up grey roots and lasts up to six weeks.
