  • Okay, so as I told you guys previously,

  • I am getting my hair cut and colored in NY.

  • It's #574 :)

  • Alright, let's go! We're going to be late!

  • So I found this salon online.

  • I called a few different places

  • I think they do well with color

  • and they seemed very popular though the reviews so...

  • We will see! I'm excited!

  • I have an appointment at 7:30.

  • Okey, what was your name?

  • Chika.

  • Do you want to follow me over here?

  • Hi! I'm Amanda. Nice to meet you!

  • Have a seat, here.

  • I'm not sure if the receptionist told you

  • that I was going to be video taping (filming).

  • Don't zoom in on my face or anything.

  • Because I don't really look good today.

  • You look fine! You look perfect!

  • Anyway, lovely to meet you.

  • Nice to meet you.

  • What are you doing? Balayage?

  • Yes, I have a few pictures.

  • That's kind of what I was thinking.

  • I'm not quite sure what's possible with

  • the cut that I have now.

  • Do you want to do a single process on the roots?

  • Do you have any idea what you want to do with the roots?

  • Because right here, you have some grey.

  • If it bothers you or not.

  • Maybe it doesn't, I don't know.

  • It does. It definitely does.

  • So that's a separate service to the balayage.

  • so the single process is an extra 90 or so.

  • If that's okay?

  • and how much is the balayage?

  • If you're doing the full head, it's 170.

  • Okay, that's fine.

  • I would do it maybe even slightly darker than what you have here.

  • Just to give it more depth.

  • and also, I actually was blonde a little while ago.

  • So this whole part is bleached.

  • You probably can tell by looking at it.

  • It feels a little bit kind of sensitized, yeah.

  • a little bit porous.

  • and to protect your hair

  • I would recommend doing Olaplex.

  • Do you know what Olaplex is?

  • Okay, so it's a three-step treatment.

  • and you'd recommend that?

  • I would recommend that, yes.

  • and then we'll get a nicer lift

  • because you want it quite bright.

  • Do you think that's too bright?

  • No, I think it'll look great.

  • That's what I don't want it to look like.

  • Looks very similar, but..

  • Why do you not like that one?

  • It looks a little too yellow.

  • Brassy, yeah.

  • and I'm also wanting a cut.

  • Not anything too drastic, but

  • my bangs are getting in the way.

  • Your length...

  • How do you feel about your length, right now?

  • I'm trying to grow out my hair.

  • So I don't want to cut it too much,

  • but it's getting a little... kind of annoying in the back.

  • Can I just introduce you really quick?

  • This is Amanda!

  • and she's going to be doing my hair today.

  • I'm so excited!

  • So I have an Instagram page

  • and it's amanda_does_my_hair [ amand_does_my_hair ]

  • and there's an underscore between each word.

  • I'm going to look at it right now, actually.

  • I actually specialize in balayage.

  • This is what I specialize in.

  • I came to the right person.

  • Have you been in New York for a long time?

  • I've been in New York for 3 years now.

  • Where were you before New York?

  • I lived in Australia before here and...

  • for 8 years.

  • and I'm here for 3

  • but I'm originally from Ireland. From Dublin.

  • We just did the first step

  • which is to single process

  • where we color her roots a little big darker

  • to create more of a contrast

  • and also just to cover just one or two greys.

  • Don't tell people!

  • Balayage is actually the French word for "sweep"

  • Those sun-kissed baby lights around the face

  • It gets a little bit lighter towards the ends of the hair.

  • It's the latest trend.

  • It's literally taking the hair dressing world by storm.

  • So we're just taking pieces now

  • and just individually painting pieces like this.

  • in more of a "V" shape.

  • so it's gradually blending towards the ends of the hair.

  • The good thing about balayage as well

  • it's very low-maintenance.

  • because the whole point is, you have a regrowth.

  • You have a root, you know?

  • There's a lot going on, right?

  • Oh wow! It looks beautiful!

  • Really? Excited!

  • We're going to take you over to the sink in just a moment.

  • and get you rinsed.

  • Let's go!

  • Just take a seat down here.

  • I'm just going to get some gloves.

  • How's the temperature?

  • Could be a little warmer.

  • Oh, wow! It's looking good!

  • I'm going to use this blue shampoo.

  • and that's what's going to help tone the hair too.

  • and it gets rid of that brassy look.

  • Looks incredible.

  • I'm excited to see it!

  • So, let's go over. I'm going to give you a new cape.

  • I'm just going to blow dry a section in the front

  • just to make sure you like the color

  • and that you're happy with it.

  • A little bang trim, yeah?

  • Do you want me to just texturize it a little?

  • Thin it out a little?

  • Looks cool!

  • You like it? Are you happy?

  • Yeah, I like it.

  • Looks good!

  • Looks very cute!

  • I love your hair!

  • Alright! So you did full balayge,

  • single process, bang trim, and the Olaplex, right?

  • What's the damage?

  • So it is $346.08.

  • Would you like a copy of the receipt?

  • Yes, please.

  • Alright, just sign that one for me.

  • and there you go!

  • Oh, is there a place for the tip?

  • The tip is cash only.

  • Perfect! Thank you! I'll give that to her for you.

  • Had a great time! Thank you!

  • Alright guys! I hope you enjoyed that!

  • See you guys later!

  • Take care! Bye!

Okay, so as I told you guys previously,
