The award: Best Wearable Crazy Colour

The winner: Crazy Colour (with Shunji Matsuo international director Sean Ng), from $300

Achieving the hair colour of your dreams just got easier, thanks to the combination of Shiseido Professional Bleach Master and Shiseido Professional Colormuse. The former protects and strengthens the hair without reducing its “lifting” powers when it lightens it. The low-alkaline formula helps neutralise warm tones and equalise any colour unevenness, to ensure a clean and even base that enhances the vibrant colours applied.

Colormuse is where the colour magic happens. This is a highly vivid dye colour system specially developed for Asian hair. The intermixable colour palette offers an unlimited range of colours, from wearable naturals to bold and attention-grabbing tones, allowing you to achieve the creative colour you desire – and easily too. 

What happened after we tried the treatment

“When I stepped in, it was clear that the hair salon is a popular one as it was bustling with customers. This meant I had to wait a while to be served. I was then led to my seat and, soon after, stylist Sean came to greet me. 

Sean is Shiseido Professional’s Color Creator who specialises in colour works. He was very friendly and asked if I was prepared for a bold hair colour. He also showed me a few photos on his phone, so I could see what he did for other customers, while noting my preferences.

Then the magic began. 

An assistant applied a scalp protectant lotion on my scalp. Next, Sean applied a bleaching solution over my entire head. He was very attentive – he noticed that a drop of bleach had landed on my finger and promptly asked me if I needed a tissue to wipe it away. The bleach didn’t sting my scalp at all, and the process was comfortable and painless. After a wash, it was time for a second round of bleach. Like before, a protectant was sprayed onto my scalp. 

The second round of bleaching did sting a little, but as the solution was left on for only a few minutes, it was bearable. In addition, when I mentioned the stinging sensation to Sean, he kindly used a hairdryer to blow cold air onto my scalp, which helped to make it more comfortable. My hair was then washed again and, this time, I was treated to an invigorating scalp massage that left me feeling refreshed. 

After that, Sean meticulously applied three different colours to my hair: peach, violet and ocean. During the processing time, he constantly checked in to see how I was doing. Overall, service was excellent and I felt like I was being taken care of with utmost professionalism. 

I was initially worried that the colour would turn out too bright, but it ended up being darker, which looked better against my skin tone. I was very pleased with the results. With the mix of different shades, my hair now looks like it has a lot of depth and volume. I received many compliments from friends and family – and even from complete strangers! 

Most importantly, my hair still felt soft and didn’t look damaged after the colouring, despite the two rounds of bleach. 

I was then sent off with advice on how to maintain my new hair colour – not to wash my hair for 48 hours, and to use a colour shampoo to ensure that the colours remain vibrant for longer.”
