Hair Dye Options in Singapore
Whether you are in the mood for a bold make-over or dyeing your hair has become a staple in your life, it is important to be aware of the different types of hair dyes and colours and learn how to choose a colour that best complements your daily-wear and skin complexion, so that you will always be satisfied with the final hair results.
While you can choose any hair colour you like, it can be helpful to know which shade of hair colour suits your skin tone best. If you are unsure with your skin tone, you can do a shirt test to check if you have a warm or cool skin tone.
Finding out your skin tone
In a well-lit room, with zero make-up on, you can check if you look better with warm tone colours such as yellow, orange or peach or cooler tones like blue, green or purple. This way you can have a good gauge with which colours can suit you best.
At Kimage salon, the professional hair stylists can give more insight based on their experience of working with many different hair types, skin complexions and dyes to suggest the best option for you. While the shirt test is a very generic one, getting a professional hair stylist to assess your skin tone and suggest colours, can be a more personalised approach in choosing the best colour.
Moreover, you can discuss the type of clothes you normally wear for instance, more casual or formal, and allow the hair stylist to provide suggestions on the colours you can go for which best fits your lifestyle and ensures that you feel confident and comfortable wherever you go with your new hair style or colour.
Hair dye colours and styles, and what they mean
Dyeing your hair is a clear way to express yourself and make a statement when you enter a room. While there is no legitimate connection between natural hair colours and someone’s personality, if you are bringing a personal choice into the equation, it reveals your preference for certain styles and therefore, may hint at some personality traits.
Dyeing your hair with unconventional colours depict unconventional thinking and a desire to be unique. It also shows an impulse to express yourself outwardly, including your desire for creativity.
Brown is a common natural hair colour that people with originally black hair like to try. It gives off an image of someone who is dependable and practical in their daily life and also someone who is hard-working and reliable as someone you can count on. There are also many different shades of brown to try that are not over-the-top yet very flattering to have.
Purple is a popular choice as an unconventional and unnatural hair colour if you are looking for a bold makeover. This hair colour usually represents creativity and intuition. People with this hair colour can come across as someone with an idealistic mindset who has a fascination with the spiritual and the unknown.
Another term being used to describe this style is dip-dye as people wish to keep their natural hair colour while also switching things up a little. This is a good choice for those who are a little bold yet also reserved as the colour gives a some contrast at the tips of your hair.
Highlights / Balayage
You might want to try something new but nothing too out of the ordinary or would cause heads to turn therefore, dyeing your hair with sleek highlights all over can be a good choice to refresh your look with a stylish touch.
At Kimage Salon, besides regular hair colouring with single shade options, you can also opt for balayage colouring to add different layers and dimension to your hair. Balayage is a French word meaning ‘sweeping’, which is a technique of free-hand painting highlights onto the hair. This creates a soft and natural gradation of lightness towards the ends and results in fresh and perfect highlights that look naturally sun-kissed and beautiful.

Dyeing your hair at a salon vs dyeing it at home
While it is usually much cheaper to dye your hair with the DIY kits you can pick up at any supermarket or grocery store, the lack of technique and experience when applying the dye can actually end up damaging your hair a lot more and lead to more costs of repairing it at a salon later on.
Especially if you are planning to bleach your hair, getting a professional at a salon to do it will be a much better recommendation as the hair stylists are well-trained and know what to look out for to ensure that you get the most even lightening effect throughout your hair.
The hair stylists at Kimage Salon are also able to provide recommendations on how feasible the hair colour of your choice is and walk you through the steps of what is needed in order to achieve your desired results. At a salon, you are guaranteed that your hair’s health is of the utmost priority so you can be rest assured that you are in good hands.
