    Blonde Asian

    Dolly Parton once said…”I’m not offended by dumb blonde jokes because I know that I’m not dumb. I also know I’m not blonde.” That’s funny. I was walking on Richmond on Friday and a sleazy club promoter smirked at me and said, I like your hair blonde. I replied: I’m a natural blonde. When I was in NY, most people think I am Japanese because I wear my hair light. I am Chinese (Shanghai + HK). What do you think?

    Wikipedia says:
    the date of the genetic mutation that resulted in blonde hair in Europe has been isolated to about 11,000 years ago during the last ice age. Before then, Europeans mostly had black hair and eyes, which is predominant in the rest of the world.

    Yay, I want to be a mutant.

    Celebs like Eve can change her look all the time, she is truly a style chameleon! Why is she so fabulous! Rapper/singer Eve is one of my favorite style icons. I don’t know what she has been doing lately, but from her last video Tambourine, I can say that I definitely love her blonde the best. But… What about me?For some people, changing their hair color is an earth shattering experience… for people like me (and Eve!) we love experimenting! I often change my hair color because 1, I participate in hair shows as a hair model. 2, I like to switch it up based on my mood. 3, I sometimes just want to match an outfit or a certain look I am going for! Am I crazy? I don’t know. My hair is not damaged at all, maybe a little dry. I think the blonde me appeals to my Gemini side: fun loving, adventurous and bold. My black hair is more of my Cancer side: emotional, introspective and passionate. I am a cusp, so can I have both? My brown hair many people love the best, it’s… well, kind of typical to me. My red? Like all fashionistas lament, doesn’t last because the vibrancy washes out. Sigh. I am currently blonde.

    Here is my hair routine: I use Garnier everything.

    and I style with

    and Schwarzkopf Osis+Thrill fibre gum

    and Schwarzkopf Osis+ Magic Gloss serum before I blow dry

    It’s great to be a blond. With low expectations, it’s very easy to surprise people!

    Parlour Launch

    Where else can you meet fellow bloggers, a clothing designer & a female band member all in one room? The recently transformed Ossington strip was where I spent a good portion of last night where I got together with some of Toronto’s trendiest for the cocktail launch of Parlour Salon. Parlour is a mod-styled, socially consious hair salon catering to the spectrum of personalities! Don’t be confused by this description; the salon itself is lined in ceiling to floor WHITE and is classically vintage in design but I was graced with the some of the trendiest Torontonian artistics that I have met in a while!!!
    Here’s a bit of what I got to see…

    She plays in a band

    He has full-sleeve tatts!!!

    She designed her own skirt… LOVE LOVE LOVE!

    The band is called ‘The Caviliers’

    They just started their own fashion blog… stay tuned

    As an ex-hairstylist I can say… this photo doesn’t do justice to how amazing her hair colour is!!!

    Kudos to Parlour for an awesome launch, be sure to check them out and see the artistry that is Parlour!!!
