Azta Ombre Makeover + Giveaway!!

by - September 15, 2014

If you remember my first ombre makeover circa February 2012, you would know that it was my first drastic hair colour and change ever! Like I mentioned there, I've always had jet black hair, so I wanted a change. Hence, the ombre look. But back then I went for a more brighter kind of ombre, which I think they call the Three-toned or Balyage Ombre. Forgive me, I kinda forgot which one of the two I got. >_< That's what happens when you get older! Haha! 


Nevertheless, Azta Urban Salon Pioneer was able to achieve the extreme change that I wanted for my hair and it was jet black no more! 

Now back to 2014, I've been jet black again for quite sometime and I've had urges to colour my hair again. But again, I wanted something drastic, but not like the ombre before. I've been actually contemplating on Violet or purple hair for awhile now. As in I would watch Vlogs, read articles and research about it. I even ask my Hubby a lot if Violet hair would suit me cos I'm scared. But until when am I going to be afraid, right? He told me to go for it! Luckily, my blogger friend Hershey was just in the nick of time when she invited me for an Azta Ombre makeover last week!:) I immediately said, "Yes!" After all, I trust Azta! Thank you, Hershey love !:") 

My "BEFORE" hair look :)

For this makeover, we went to the newest branch of Azta over at SM Jazz, Makati. It's a place I'm quite familiar with since I pass by it everyday, so it was easy to find. :) If you're not familiar with SM Jazz, it's actually near MAPUA Makati!:)

We were also welcome with cute cupcakes (which Athan gorged in a matter of minutes) our photo standees and magazines when we got there. So cute!:) If you wish, you also have a choice of hot or cold milk tea while you're having your makeover.

For my ombre makeover, the first thing they did was wash my hair and blow-dried, so the stylist can see my real hair length and texture and gage from there how to dye my hair. :) As you can see my BEFORE hair is already a bit longer than before and back to black. I'm really glad they didn't chop off my tresses for this cos at least I can allow my hair to grow more. :)

With this wonderful hair-day, I was with two other gorgeous bloggers Hershey and Jirbie. :)

From what I know, Hershey and Jirbie actually both got a Balyage Ombre a.ka. Bombre. Check their blog out to know more about their Azta ombre experience! :)

"A style that combines the wonders of Ombre colouring with Balayage painting, a relatively new freestyle highlighting technique which allows your stylist to create that soft, sun-kissed natural looking post-summer look. The effect is a subtle gradation of colour, with added sweeps of depth and dimension."

As for me, the girl who wants violet hair, I went for the Funky ombre!

"Take your hair colour a notch higher and pick from Azta's palette of funky shades. Make your statement. All you need is a good sense of fun, an eye for interesting colour combinations, and a boost of confidence!"

And that's exactly what I did! Since the shade of purple is one of my favourite colour (obviously it's one of my blog's colour scheme), I might as well jump in!

The first process of dying my hair was to bleach the ends. Since I wanted the colour violet, bleaching the ends was a must. I, of course knew this already since I've been researching about "How to dye your hair purple and it's effects." If you have dark hair and want a lighter shade, you really can't avoid bleaching, because the colour will just not show as much without this process. This step took some time, because they had to keep bleaching the ends till they got the yellow shade that would be able to accommodate the violet dye. I think a total of one hour and 20 minutes?

And once the bleaching process is done, it's now time to go for the VIOLET dye!!! I feel like HIT-GIRL here. You know her? The super hero that Chlöe Grace Moretz played in the movie Kick-Ass. I felt like that for a good 20-30 minutes haha!^_^

Finally after washing the dye out...

If you're wondering if bleaching the ends of my hair got it super dry, no it actually didn't!:) It still feels like it did before dying it violet. I also got a special Davines shampoo from Azta to maintain the colour.

This ombre makeover is just LOVE! I'm beyond happy with the turnout! Thank you so much to the Azta Urban Salon Jazz Team for the awesome experience! Especially to my stylists- Ms. Ira, Sir Cris and Ms. Meg Lachica!:) My hair wouldn't be this amazing without your care!:)
