Last week I was invited to attend the Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week (KLFW) by Vanity Trove. I couldn’t contain my excitement when Winnie called me! LOL I hurried and confirmed my attendance, because I will not only be looking at the collection Lisa Surihani for Jovian Mandagie but also be pampered in Miko Galere for a hair wash and blow session with L’oreal’s new haircare range; Mythic Oil.
Can’t get anymore awesome to start the weekend right ?
So it started with the hair do in Miko Galere @ Level 6 Pavilion. I love hair stuffs and it’s quite crazy how many serum or oils I have sitting on my shelf. Yet, I was so happy to be able to try the famed Mythic Oil by L’oreal Professional. (review of the oil in another post k because its too awesome!)
Miko Galere @ Pavilion, where we had our hair done.
After some grueling hours of deciding what to wear and how to draw brows, I finally made it to Miko in Pavillion (gosh, traffic??) This is my hair on normal days. I have wavy hair by natural (and frizzy, but that can be fixed) and I’m not a big fan of straight-sticking-to-the-face hair. Oh, my jawline looks kinda different here because I just did a Sublime Lift at The Retreat Clinic (review post another day) the day before, hence my face looks extra V-shape!
L’oreal Mythic Oil Nourishing Shampoo, Conditioner and The Original Mythic Oil. They smell good! not flowery or too much fragrance. Actually when I first smell the Mythic Oil, it reminds me of Middle Eastern LOL.. Maybe Middle Eastern smells like that ? HAha
So the stylist washed with The Mythic Oil Shampoo and Conditioner, blow dried a little before using the Mythic Oil. She mentioned that it’s better to use the oil on semi-dry hair so it absorbs better. Well, if the stylist says so..
Then she asked me “So how u wanna do your hair”… I said “Up to you but make it gorgeous ok?!!”
She gave me this. o.o
She used this curling tong iron comb thing. It’s a curling tong, that looks like a round comb. It was a long process partially because I have ALOT of hair and the stylist took her own time in curling my hair. At first, it looks kinda short after the tong-ing process. But for the next 2 days, my hair was so awesome I can’t even!
Volumed hair FTW. see my hair so shiny and soft like blowing with the wind ahaha wtf. The Mythic Oil is the secret I tell ya..
All thanks to L’Oreal Professional, Cecilia and Jin 🙂
Jerine from milliondollarbeauty.blogspot.com was here too! (photo from her)
After that we had dinner in Ben’s just a couple of doors away from Miko. (uhm forgot to take photos cause starving already!) The show was due to start at 9pm, so dinner came about just on time!
Interesting table talk cards! Definitely kept the phones away and great ice breaker as well. I will choose a masseuse please. 😛
