Here’s what we know from the fourth episode:
Just like many of us, Joycelyn dyed her hair a shade of brown to amp up her look. However, after leaving the salon, she did not manage to keep up with proper hair care that maintains both the quality of her hair colour and style. More than a year passes by which leaves her to where she is today.
Having lost its colour and shine, her hair has uneven colouring with several layers of shades at the bottom part of her hair. Her friend Pei Shi encourages her to restore her hair with a more natural hue and switch up her appearance to a more feminine style inspired by Korean beauty icons.
In this episode, she seeks the help of Ken Hong, Salon Director of Evolve Salon. He is known for creating fresh and experimental hairstyles that elevate the ordinary and has been spotted in numerous fashion magazines and shows.
Restoring Joycelyn’s natural hairdo, Ken provides a trim to get rid of the dry ends and applies a hair dye for a brighter shine. He uses Goldwell Topchic and Newance Fashion to achieve elegant browns that match her skin complexion. Because of the hair dye used, a twist was added! Under different lightings, Joycelyn’s rich chocolate-brown hair also reveals different undertones, from ash brown to red. Joycelyn sports a trendy coffee-chocolate hair colour, instantly debuting a more youthful and energetic appearance, from shy and dull to an alluring goddess glow.
Ken teaches her to learn from her mistakes and highlights the importance of maintaining a dye job beyond the salon with a good shampoo and conditioner, and a hair mask twice a week. He recommends using the range, and from Goldwell. Not only do these hair products provide volume to her luscious locks, Joycelyn also says that her hair is softer and has a nice fragrance.
