Restyle by A Cut Above, Sunway Pyramid

Since I have came to KL few years back, my search for an affordable yet good service salon has never end. It is usually too pricey or the service isn't that good or sometimes I just don't like the hairstylist's taste wtf. 
If you are also in the midst of searching, you can end your search after reading this post. 

If you have followed me closely on Instagram/Facebook, you will notice that I have been trying out really a lot of hair salon. And this time, I am giving it a try at Restyle by A Cut Above

Restyle was built on the idea that a haircut is more than just a haircut. It has an inherent power to change your look, elevate your bearing, and influence your character. Imagine making a whole new first impression on someone. Here at Restyle we aim to cultivate the look you want, and the appearance you aspire to portray - About Restyle

The service offered here has a wide selection: treatments, rebonding, perm, straightening and etc. They offer Signature Packages which I think very worth it. The place is cosy and bright, and the hairstylists here are very friendly and ready to assist you anytime. Besides, you can have your mani/pedi done at the meantime! 

You can be assured to enjoy the quality service at Restyle, as the stylists are trained and supervised by the A Cut Above Group. Needless to say, A Cut Above is one of the supreme brand in the hair industry which won countless awards. 

This is my hair right now! Pretty or not! I am loving it very much.
My hairstylist is Edmund, from Restyle by A Cut Above in Sunway Pyramid. I am going to show you how he transform my disgusting hair to something I love it so much. Continue to read if you want to know more about my hair makeover.

My very disgusting grass-like hair. Awful roots, bad hair ends, extremely dry hair and it is totally out of shape. I get a shock everytime when I look at this photo. How can I go around with this hair omg

And the reason I have been tolerating it is because it looks quite acceptable from front. But looking back my old photos now, I am kinda regret that I felt that way. Because it actually looks equally awful as the back!

I am going to do whole head dye and treatment. I have never try red based hair colour before, so Edmund suggested that I can try the Majirouge colour. I am using the 6.66 which is the lightest colour. In Restyle by A Cut Above, they are using L'oreal Professional products.

To add a little bit more fun into the usual hair colour, Edmund suggested me to get a highlight. But my hair is in really bad condition, I cannot do those funky colour like green or blue which requires bleaching. I was quite sad la when he said that.. BUT he soon come back and said he has a hair colour which do not require bleaching and it stands out just as well! And it is going to be a pinkish red tail! It is going to match with my Majirouge hair just nice. Edmund did the highlight at the bottom hair so it won't look too flattering, but can see it clearly while I tie my hair up. I just leave everything to him as I believe in him. He has been working in there for 5 years. There's no reason I should not entrust my hair to him.

My last hair dye was in last year October/November. It has been quite some time so the black roots are pretty long. Edmund explained that my hair needs a few steps in order to get even colour on whole head.

As we all knew, colouring+treatment requires quite some time. There's a hairstylist whom I didn't get her name(sorry T.T) asked me if I were hungry and they have some biscuits over there. But that time I wasn't hungry yet. Another an hour or so, I started to feel hungry but I thought its ok I will just wait till my hair is done as I am too lazy to walk around with my half-done hair. But, Edmund was really sweet to offer to buy burger for me! Eventhough I didn't mention I am starting to feel hungry and he was so busy at that time. I know is a very small gesture but in fact, he is the only hairstylist I met who will offer to help. I was really touched!

After getting my hair colour done, we are almost done! To revive my hair, Edmund recommended me to use the Liss Unlimited Treatment. It smells so good I feel like eating my hair. And the smell stays for about 3 days even after I shampooed my hair with my own shampoo. I highly recommend this treatment to people who did a lot of chemical treatment on hair before, just doesn't bother to take care of it and hair is in severe damage like mine wtf. This works like miracle to me. 
You can top up a little bit more in their Signature Package to get this treatment. Like my package for long hair, it includes hair dye(whole head)+cut+treatment, it is priced at RM305. For the price you paid, I think it is very worth it. The price is reasonable and the service is great. What's more the result is satisfying!

After the treatment, my hair is done!
Hello new hair! scroll up the post to see the 'Before' hair. I am amazed to see the difference especially on hair quality. My hair looks healthier and smoother and no more frizzy dry damaged hair! If you noticed, at the left bottom can see a little bit of my red highlight hehe. Just a little bit. So if you are worried your workplace/college/family can't accept funky hair but you want to try something new, I believe this is one of good choice for you. 

Edmund blow dry and curl my hair nicely and tadaa! You can now see my pinkish red highlight! Words can't describe my feeling when I see my new hair. I feel like give Edmund a big hug and thank him for saving my (hair) life. He recommended me to curl my hair like this so my red tail can see the world but sorry la I am just too lazy hahaha I will just camwhore for like 1000 photos and look at it while I am missing it.

If I have a curler at home I probably will do that haha but too bad I only have straightener

Love the interlocking red highlight!!! If my laziness will run away from home one day, I am going to do this to my hair every single day. It is just brilliant. To be honest, a lot of people look at me that day and one salesgirl even asked me where I did my hair. That's the moment where I feel like a star HAHAHA just kidding

During normal days when I just do not have the time to curl my hair, I just let it naturally down. As I didn't do any rebonding and some of the curl from my previous perm are remaining, my hair will curl inwards like this. Supposingly it will hide my pretty red tails but I think just showing a little bit of the red is equally good. It is adding a little bit more of fun into the usual hair.

Under normal sunlight, my hair appears more red than indoor. Is it reddish brown or brownish red? Either way I am loving it! The red hair complement my skin tone so well, and as Edmund said, I am looking fairer than before. 

And this time, I am so determined to protect my hair colour so I get the colour protect shampoo as Edmund recommended. My hair colour did fade a little bit but still as awesome! The photo above is taken 2 weeks after I done my hair. 

Thank you so much Edmund and A Cut Above for the awesome hair! Remember to look for Edmund in Restyle by A Cut Above! Do follow and to know more about Restyle by A Cut Above and BloggeRestyle.
