well again today my friends ajak i pergi menyanyi karaoke lagi. This time im surrounded by people who can really sing..feel a bit intimidated at first, tapi x kisahla..nak buat camna...tapi i learn one thing, kalau i selalu hang out with these people (dlm karaoke) , i punya kualiti suara pun somehow improve jugak puji diri sendiri....

iklan oleh ...: actually bambang does hv a nice voice!!! tone dh cukup sedap dh. bt as they say, practice makes perfect. so, apa lagi.. mari karaoke selaluuuuu...

yeay! ni chad neh! best best karaoke dgn bambang.

by the way, masa i tulis blog ni, i was in the red masa i tulis nie, tiba2 i kena menyanyi so my friends sibuk tulis plak... so u guys kan just ignore what they wrote up there....tapi i takut nak padam, takut diorg marah. what ever it is, what i tried to tell u guys is .. kalau u selalu associate urself with successful , the chances u akan jadi successful pun tinggi, so kalau i nak pandai nyanyi, i kena la selalu ikut diorg menyanyi ;) .. Hari ni i baru realised that i boleh tarik nafas masuk dkt perut, and then menyanyi from perut ...sounds like i said before my talent lies in cutting hair not in singing....

Tapi hari ni, Jojo punya last day sebelum dia cuti lama till next quite worried to be honest sbb kedai ramai org and i tak tahu if i could handle it without her , not that i dont trust anyone..... By the way, apa RESOLUTION u guys for next year? I tak tahu lagi apa yang i nak exactly...There are so many things that i want to achieve and have but i do not know where to start...

How to correctly/alternatively use your home product

the right usage of hairstyling products

This time , i want to share u the facts,truths,alternative and correct way in using hair product that you buy.

1) Leave in conditioner : Best used on curly hair ----> give out moisture to the hair and the curly hair become more bouncy and less frizzy
: U can also use it as a hair protection before u go swimming in the sea or swimming pool. The leave in conditioner will coat your hair and minimize the damage done by chlorine (bleaching agent) and sea water.

2) Hair Serum : Best used on dry hair -------> makes the hair more shiny but please dont overburden the hair with serum. It will be too oily. Not really suitable for fine hair as the weigh of the serum will make ur fine hair limb.
'LESS IS MORE' Pls just use a small amount of serum and please use it more for the hair ends and not at the root.


Banyaknya uban i hari ni....well i just realized that today that i have not colour my hair for quite some time...well i rasa macam ok jugak biarkan dia grey semua , nampak distinguished sikit :))

by the way, hari ini biasala appointment full
from morning till 9pm...before that my friends texted me , telling me that diorang nak pergi karaoke
at redbox...just one floor under hairkunst..Tempted sangat,
itulah antara cabaran kerja sebagai hairdresser, bila orang cuti kita kena kerja,
but im ok with it...
so i joined them after sempatla nyanyi dua tiga lagu...
i know my talent is in cutting hair and not singing, tapi x kisah, saja nak lepas geram.

mmm actually apa yg i tulis ni? entahla..actually i want to write more about the event tapi takut
nanti ada yang terasa pulak..maybe next time when i am more
bold dan berani i sambung balik.. ;)

Hari nie tadi ada meeting dkt Kedai, our monthly meeting...So semua org ada... Jojo, Dwen, Imran, Faris , Shima, Syahirah dgn Asiah . So seperti biasa i annouced employee of the month ..and sekali lagi for three consecutive weeks jatuh pada tangan JOJO. Happy dia... i suka tengok org happy , anyway, she really deserves it. Jojo is my super senior at the shop and starting next year she will be the next director for hairkunst. Im happy for her. Again she deserves the new pangkat, gaji and recognition. Dia dah hampir 9 tahun jadi hairdresser, very peka and her observing skill and creativity is superb. Well yg lain2 pun rasa bersemangat juga sbb semua org akan naik gaji tahun depan . So our super senior now is Dwen and the other senior would be Shima. Imran pun bagus jugak..he used to be my apprentice and look at him now...Tak lama lagi dia akan jadi junior hairstylist...very enthusiastic, creative ,charismatic and his PR skill is superb!!!! very articulate this guy. I love my team skg...i see them as my own family. Really happy that my salon takde tikam2 belakang punya org, everyone get along well with each other...and the bes thing is , they really honest with their clients and i think that is because they cherish and love their job. So skg i pun rasa bersemangat jugak...

By the way, i baru diterima sbg Asia Pacific Trend Trainer for Schwarzkopf 2010 and im the first malay guy yg dapat position ni :))) hurray for me :)))) So nanti i got to travel to Japan, India, China, Indonesia, Brunei, Thailand and Spore to train hairdressers .... oooo i suka job ni :)

Which , What and When?

The Right Shampoo for You

Which shampoo to use? what brands ?when to use it? A lot of questions to ponder.

There are hundreds of types and brands available in the market .Which one should u buy? Normally, the best way to find out whichshampoo suit you the best,is only after series of trials and errors.
The most expensive shampoo doesnt really means it would do your hair wonder (but nevertheless, the ingredients are normally from the highest quality) because if u pick the rightshampoo type for you, a RM 10 Shampoo can do your hair justice as well ;)

Well here are some tips to consider , to narrow down the choices :

If your hair is fine, look for a shampoo with a clear formula.What does that means? Normally, at the bottle/packaging , it would stated either deep cleansing shampoo, light shampoo or volume shampoo (or anything similar to it).The shampoo's liquid also looks clear.These kind of shampoos can also benefit your scalp. It cleanses your scalp and it feels light.
Creamy shampoos are more moisturizing but can weigh down fine hair.It would be too heavy for fine hair.Your hair would be limb and flat.Moisturizingshampoo is good for curly hair (only if u like ur curl ;) and dry hair.

If you have sensitive scalp or bad dandruff , my advice is to but a really SPECIFIC shampoo for YOUR SCALP such as anti dandruff shampoo ,sensitive scalp shampoo or deep cleansing shampoo. But you should only use it when the problem occur because these kind of shampoos are formulated to benefit and soothen your scalp and do not really help to moisturize the hair. But some of my clients would then tell me that PREVENTION is better than CURE... Which is true. What could you do is to use theshampoo alternately. Maybe use the scalp shampoo every three days or so. Depends on the situation (and climate for some countries).
