BEAUTY LAB: WELLA HAIR COLOR AT JING MONIS BELLEVUE

The allure to get new hair color is never quite as strong as in the new year. To start off 2012 with a bang, three Style Bible editors sampled the Wella color services care of the Jing Monis Salon in Bellevue, Alabang in order to match our new year's pep with a spanking new color. 

Jacque de Borja, Editorial Assistant 

What was your hair like pre-dye?

My hair is quite fine with the color a medium shade of brown before my appointment. Because my hair would look flat most of the time, I had a perm a year ago with my curls but the color of my hair then didn’t really give dimension or the illusion of volume.

What kind of change were you looking for?

I wanted something that I’ve never tried before. Since I already colored my hair in a lighter shade of brown a few years back, I wanted to try red with purple undertones (a trend for the year) to make my curly locks look more current

What color did you settle on?

I settled for Wella’s Medium Brown intensive Violet Mahogany. It belongs to the red family but wasn’t going to be a drastic change since I was still a bit hesitant to go crazy. The hair color experts suggested this shade because it was more subtle and still kept my hair dark.

What was the process like?

It took us about 3 hours to color and treat my hair with a moisturizing mask. They started with brushing the dye on my roots first then after a few minutes, they continued to brush the dye to the rest of my hair. After that, they rinsed and applied a moisturizing mask to make sure my locks feel silky soft. They finished up with a rinse and a fab blow dry!

How did you like the result?

I love how my hair looks dark indoors but when light or the sun hits it, it transforms into a bright purple-ish red shade. It’s amazing and I love it! I also got a lot of compliments for my new hairdo!

Who would you recommend the color for?

I would recommend it to the girls who want change but still want something subtle, it’s also perfect for medium skin tones, and it makes your features pop!

What was your hair like pre-dye?

I had a grown out pixie cut. The last time I colored my hair was about two years ago (it was a chestnut brown). 


What kind of change were you looking for?

I was looking for a not-so-drastic change that would revive my hair since I'm in the process of growing it out. I asked my colorist to bring out the ashy, light brown color of my hair at its lightest when it's under sunlight.


What color did you settle on?

We settled for dark blonde in the ashy range for the base color, with light blonde highlights. We opted for subtle highlights to give texture and dimension to my fine hair, and to emphasize the few textural snips that they gave me after the dye job.


What was the process like?

The process took relatively long considering I have short hair, but I suppose they took extra time because they had to section my hair for the highlights. 


How did you like the result?

When I went back to my chair after the final rinse, I was shocked! The color turned out much, much lighter than I expected, and for a few minutes I was really considering having them tone it down. But after some much-needed encouragement from both Reggie and Jacque (and my boyfriend, who liked the change), I decided to stick with it. After a few days, I eventually got used to the color and would now consider going even lighter in the future should I want a more drastic change!


Who would you recommend the color for?

Generally, I'd recommend a coloring job for anyone who's trying to grow out a very short haircut. Goodness knows we need a lot of help in that awkward transitional phase! As for going dark blonde, I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to go lighter without resorting to the usual chestnut or mahogany browns.

What was your hair like pre-dye?

A week before my salon visit at Jing Monis Bellevue, I had actually already dyed my hair darker to the deepest ash brown. I was therefore a bit apprehensive about doing anything too harsh since I usually like leaving a month in between chemical treatments.

What kind of change were you looking for?

Feeling a bit pale with my new color, I was just looking to warm up the hue a little care of some highlights or lowlights—definitely nothing too drastic.

What color did you settle on?

My stylist, Erica (who incidentally was the newest member of the Jing Monis team), suggested that if I didn’t want anything too drastic that we pick hues a few shades lighter than my current color to weave into my hair. After some deliberation, we decided a duo of Medium Brown and Golden Brown would create dimension in my dark hair without altering the color all together.

What was the process like?

Since my hair was so dark, Erica decided to first do a patch test on one chunk of hair to see how much time they needed to lighten. After the test, Erica alternated painting on the medium and golden browns on my strands. I also requested she skip over the top area (where my part is) so that re-growth wouldn’t be obvious.

How did you like the result?

I loved the result! Erica was a bit apprehensive at how subtle the change was but it was honestly exactly what I wanted. My hair was at its best a few days later when some dye had faded and you could really see the depth of color that the highlights and lowlights created. Plus, the lighter strands created the illusion that my hair was shinier than usual!

Who would you recommend the color for?
Girls like me who don’t want a big change but just want to feel a bit fresher. Dyeing your hair doesn’t always have to be some huge deal. Highlights and lowlights allow you to keep majority of your hair in a color you’re comfortable with, but with visible dimension.
