The last time I coloured my hair, I was still in college. Since then, I have been sporting jet black hair. I thought I was saving myself some hassle from maintaining the hair colour, but obviously black doesn’t necessary work well for certain skintone.


Asians do look good in brown hair.

My hair sponsor, Shunji Matsuo Hair Studio at Ngee Ann City has a collaboration with L’Oréal Professional Parisian Brown hair color collection and they suggested I could be matched a brown shade for a “Chic Brown Look”. I deliberated a wee bit – with questions in my head like “would having brown hair make me look better?”, “is it worth making a trip down the salon getting my hair coloured?” – and eventually with the intention to be open to all things new, I took up the offer.

I was matched a shade from the extensive L’Oréal Professional Majibrown collection. I was insistent on a darker, office-friendly shade – I don’t wanna go back to office in shocking red!


If the facts here would comfort me (and you) – in Singapore, up to 70% of customers colour their hair brown. In addition, L’Oreal Professionnel’s Majibrown colour is a Japanese formula specially for Asian hair that helps to colour and tone the hair at the same time. It provides good coverage for grey hair as well.


My current hairdo now with a deep mahagony brown colour.


Compare it with my jet black hair previously… I think I’m pretty happy with the new change in my life!
