Moving on, I was greeted by Ryu-san, also known as Marco, as many couldn't pronounce his name in the right way. Personally, I liked Ryu better so I asked him to correct me till I got it right. If I didn't remember wrongly, the Japanese way of pronouncing Ryu sounds like the alphabets d+u or dew and not Ree-you :)
Ryu-san is an experienced senior stylist with 7 years of experience in Tokyo, Vancouver and now Singapore. This explains his fluency in English and I found out that he learnt the language through conversing with others and self learning, which is really impressive!
(Side note: There are no extra charges for choosing stylists at COVO!)
Like many, I wanted a reddish colour for Chinese New Year that will suit my skin tone and not be overly loud or bright to avoid bleaching. Ryu-san was fast in analysing and deciding on the final colour by personalizing the colour tone with the mixture of brown and red. He then went on to colour the bottom half of my hair, along the lines of a dip dye look. One reason I chose this style of colouring is to avoid having to colour again once the roots grow out. But I might be considering going for full colour now that I've seen how pretty and subtle this reddish tone is! More pictures below :)
*PS. Covo Singapore doesn't charge extra during Chinese New Year period and will be open throughout the festive holidays too. Be sure to book them early to avoid disappointment!
