After trying Nobu Salon’s amazing Ash Grey Ombre last year, we are now back for another hair transformation! This time, we decided to invite Astrid Satwika, a mother and influencer, to try the hottest trending sophisticated look, Smokey Matte Ash with Balayage.
Astrid told us her balayage experiences haven’t been great with several salons as they have failed to achieve the result she wanted, so she was excited to accept our recommendation to try Nobu Salon at their newest location at La Maison Gallery Barito in Kebayoran Baru.
Like the other branches, Nobu’s La Maison Gallery Barito location offers an authentic Japanese salon experience with the same range of treatment,. from haircuts, Japanese digital perms to hair coloring. Known for their hair coloring services, Kenta San is the main hair stylist at this location with over 12 years of professional experience in Japan, Jakarta and Canada.
Mr. Nobu San and Mr. Kenta San analyzed Astrid’s current dark brown-orange hair, and realized it was extremely damaged. They decided not to bleach her hair as the bleaching process would be too harsh for her already dry ends. After their consultation with Astrid, the team decided to go with highlight streaks on top with soft grey touch at the end. In addition, they wanted to finish the coloring with a treatment to fix the dryness and make sure she leaves the salon with shiny and healthy looking hair.
The coloring session started off with dividing Astrid’s hair into smaller bundles to control the application. Kenta San applied highlights using foil to Astrid’s dry hair, followed by balayage application. He used Milbon Ordeve Matt Smokey Matte Ash color tone level 9 and 11 and mixed them with clear blue to cancel out the orange. “We like to mix single colors and create our own unique color because we believe each person deserves personalized hair transformation,” explained Kenta San.
After watching Kenta San meticulously sweep and paint each individual strand of hair to make sure not a single hair missed, we can really see how detailed and professional he is with his clients. Kenta San then washed and dried Astrid’s hair to check the result and decided to repeat the process for the second time to make sure the color popped up beautifully.
After the second wash, he is now ready to move onto the treatment. Using Milbon Deesse’s hair treatment, a quick 3-step salon restore system, Kenta San applied by massaging the treatment into the hair until the hair was fully coated. Astrid’s hair became much healthier, moisturize and pliable within minutes. He finished the look with natural waves using a curling iron.
Astrid, “The result is amazing! I’m so happy the color shows up nicely even without damaging my hair with any bleach. My hair also feels so soft and has come to life again because of the treatment. Thank you Kenta San!”
Astrid’s Smokey Matte Ash with Balayage starts at IDR. 1.800.000.
