FAQ

HOME STUDIO

Why Home Studio?

In Singapore, most people are rather skeptical about the idea of visiting a home salon. Do I bend over for a hair wash in a bathroom? What if it gets awkward? Am I invading into her privacy? These are some common concerns. With Katherine Home Studio, I set out to change this mindset and raise the bar higher for home salons.

 

What to Expect?

It is important to ask the right questions and more importantly, to listen. This process help me identify the sweet spot between what you want and what really works for you.

SIGNATURE HAIRCUT

What is Signature Haircut?

Signature Haircut is like your favourite little black dress. Meticulously tailored to your hair texture, unique personality and lifestyle for a perfect everyday fit. The uniqueness of my signature haircut lies in the way I create texture without the use of texturising scissors.

Structure and shape are put in for a longer lasting haircut. Hair flows naturally allowing easy daily maintenance.

The introduction of this technique in 2008 was a turning point in my career, in terms of differentiate myself from my peers. Signature Haircut has built me a group of huge loyal clientele.

 

BLENDED HIGHLIGHT

What is Blended Highlight?

Blended Highlights is like your jewelry. Customised highlight placement to bring forth your best features. I focus on colour placement rather than adding colours for the sake of it. I study your skin tone carefully and recommend the most flattering colours and tones. This blended approach allow hair to grow out nicely without that bend of dark roots on your crown. Most of my clients only highlight their hair 2-3 time each year. This method saves you the time, hassle, money and most importantly, preserves the health of your hair.

 

Philosophy on Colouring?

Health of your hair is always top priority. I do not believe in over-processing just to achieve a desired colour. Damaged hair equates ugly hair, period.

 

Fancy Colours Without Damaging Hair?

It is possible to achieve fancy colours like blond, ash, pearl, etc, with minimal damage. However, it is important to explain that it usually requires more than 1 sitting, especially with Asian hair. Simply put, there are lots of natural red, orange and yellow pigments in Asian hair and without removing them, most cool hues are unachievable. Equally important is a set of strict home care and styling routine in order to maintain the colour and condition of your hair. Conclusion: fancy hair colour is not for the faint hearted!

 

CURLICUE CURL

What is Curlicue Curls?

Curlicue Curl is your killer heels. The best lift-me-up for flat and limp hair. It is a customized way of creating semi-permanent waves, which I have been developing since 2013 to accentuate my Signature Haircut.

 

How does it work?

Sizes of perming rods, methods of winding hair into the rods and placement depends entirely on your hair type and desired style. Most importantly, after discussing your preference, I will tailor the best approach for you.

 

How long does it last?

Depending on individual’s hair texture, generally 4-6 months.

 

Damaging to the hair?

No, because the perming gel is a semi-permanent solution. Which means that the chemical only penetrates as far as the hair cortex and not into the medulla. Medulla is the core structure of hair.

 

Difference Between Curlicue curl and Other Types of Perm?

Perm are generally divided into two main categories; cold perm and hot perm. The conventional cold perm, uses penetrative perming chemicals, which can result in curls that are too curly and frizzy (think Annie).

Digital perm is an example of a hot perm. It also uses penetrative chemicals as well as high heat (120-220 degree celsius) to permanently “set” hair. A combination of these two is a surefire way to damaged hair.
