Now that my Goddess is preggy, she tends to stay at home/around her neighbourhood even more. So on one of the days that she was clearing leave, she couldn't stand her thick manes (her hair is really thicker than mine) and decided to go for a hair trim.
As she was too lazy to dress up and heavy to go to town, she decided to try a neighbourhood salon to have her haircut. It's going to be cheaper - and how wrong can you go with a trim to get your hair thinner - or so she thought.
My Goddess also didn't want to go to any salons in Toa Payoh, but a slightly more reputable one. So she googled online for reviews. K1 had some decent mentions on forums, and so there so goes.
True enough, the price is half cheaper than what she usually gets her usual salons in 313. But the saying "you pay peanuts for monkeys" can't be truer.
The service was really horrible. And I'm not even talking about serving water/drinks. The hairdresser Lawrence was so rough. Even though he looked metrosexual or even on the feministic side, he was so rough in handling my Goddess' hair! He pulled her hair at every single cut to the point it was so painful! And the cut that he did was the old school style - my Goddess wanted to trim her hair thinner, so he took the inner layers of the hair and them shorter. So of course her hair will look thinner and lighter when it's all let down. But when she tries to tie them up, the shorter insides will fall out so obviously that it looks like a haircut gone terribly wrong (see picture below and you will get what I mean).
My Goddess opted to have her hair wash and blown too, so having paid extra, she thought he would appreciate it and give her a more tender and better service. Sadly, the water was cold. And when blow drying, the hot air was burning her scalp and ears. And the end result of the blow dry? Her hair was so flat and the ends still all over the place. My Goddess could have done a better job herself!

|And see what I mean by the inside strands falling out on the right side of my Goddess. There was also another similar strip on the left side, not visible in this picture.|
