Kim Gets Hair-inspired For The Festive Season

Are those shiny lights glistening in the sky? Are those carols we hear in the distance? Is that liquid-gold we hearing being poured into glasses?

It's unmistakably the most wonderful time (to seriously doll up) of the year! Besides sexy dresses, what about those tresses? Oh, they can make or break you!

As always, Team Trixilini has you covered... with who else, but one of the best in the trade - kimrobinson! Kim, hardly a stranger to the salon, pays her trusted hair-stylist, Andy Ong, a visit for some inspiration for the festive season. 

Plush, chic, and cosy greet you at the entrance... definitely sets the right tone for that indulgent treat that awaits.
We were distracted by the accessories and products lining the shelves for a little while. Oops!

Thought the pair of pretty peacocks quietly adorning the corner deserved a picture.
Notice how they're the beginning of nature present within, like a lush private garden within urbanity you'd find sanctuary in.

kimrobinson's signature carpeted aisle with wood- and flora-insertions along the way, a contrasting flow from the entrance, giving off an elegant yet organic, warm vibe that's very inviting - exactly the kind of feeling you have right before a luxurious, pampering treat.

We don't know about you, but by the way, it sure feels like a runway you'd sashay out of the salon on, tossing your new fabulous locks as you go!

This way to gorgeous, please!

One of the rooms you'd be treated like royalty in... and Kim got to be a queen!
Each room services only 2.
Ah, the life...

Seated and robed, Kim starts having a chat with Andy, about what she'd come to kimrobinson for - 
a fabulous new look for the upcoming season, with some pampering by the side.

Having enjoyed a long-term hair-affair with Andy's deft scissor-hands and creative mind, Kim doesn't spend too much time explaining what she wants to the man who's worked on stars like international celebrity, Joan Chen, and model/veejay/wife-to-Daniel Wu, Lisa S. 

A much-needed trim (thanks to Baby Naomi who's been keeping Kim too busy) to shape and set the stage for Kim's new look. A good hair-cut/trim every 2-3 months is essential for good hair-(every)days!

Notice how Andy's assistant carefully positions a piece of tissue-paper wherever is necessary as he snips away.
Hair-free-face hair-cuts! What's not to love? Talk about attention to detail!

Now, walk this way... for your coiffure-cleanse.
Caution! Drowsiness is highly likely.

Slightly dim mood lights and soothing natural presence set the perfect ambience for relaxation as you unwind while getting your scalp cleansed and massaged.
Loosen up, succumb to restoration, and let all that tension melt away...

Oops! Photo-bomb!

Kim's obviously yet another knocked-out-victim of their magical massage.
Look how she's concussed into the sink at the end. 

Meanwhile, back in the room...
How thoughtful - making sure our arm-candies leave in the same condition they arrived in.
Didn't we tell you kimrobinson was all about pampering you?

Andy says "always blow-dry your hair after a wash so styling is made easier". It also helps create a bit of volume when you scrunch and ruffle the roots a little as you go along.

Fight the flat (hair) with this little ingenious invention by Kim Robinson himself. You know where those areas are!
Flip the top layer of hair and start crimping the underlying hair near the roots. Crimp more layers of hair if you really need volume. Flip your hair back in place and use your fingers to lightly ruffle the areas.
Voila! Flat-hair-no-more!

Interested in bagging one for yourself? Patience! Details are coming up soon!

Random curling (Andy used a curling iron) is more interesting according to Andy, and we're not going to argue with the man who knows his stuff! 

Making it all look effortless with (seemingly) random selection of hair and curling in all different directions and methods, Andy works his magic on Kim's locks, and before you know it...


Ta da!!
Kim wanted something sexy and glamorous, a new look, and she was happy with what she got.
Time for a snap-shot, guys!
Lovely!

Here's a video of how Andy created a sexy bit-of-pouf on Kim's crown for her next look. Love the volume with a bit of pretty mess! Are you taking pointers on how to DIY?

A few twists here, a few pins there...

There you have it! A second look!

Here's what you've been waiting for...
Who doesn't need some volumising aid in this humidity?
This little darling as a gift to yourself or someone else who's going to love you long-time for it, is unassumingly called 'Volumising Crimper' (SGD108).
Snag yours at kimrobinson!


Just in case you thought that was the end of it, here's a piece of uber fab' news! kimrobinson and Trixilini want to spread the happy cheer this season, so....

Three REALLY lucky ladies who celebrate our 12th birthday with us this weekend (Friday and Saturday) are going to pampered with the works - a hair-cut, cleanse and finish worth SGD248 each - by Andy himself! 


This season just got SO much merrier!
