Kimarie Hair Academy


Kimarie @ Sungai Wang


Meet my hairstylist – MC (initials of her name) of Kimarie Hair Academy at Sungei Wang (she has Tuesdays off).

I finally got a haircut yesterday after putting it off for weeks. I
went to Sungei Wang and looked around and found that RM 25 seems to be
the base price for haircuts around there. I went into Kimarie and asked
how much it costs and was told it’s RM 25 by a hairstylist and RM 48 by
a professional. I said I’ll go for the hair stylist, seeing as to how
my bank balance is dismally low and how I have to pay excess bandwidth
fees every month, and I was not disappointed. πŸ˜‰

I need a haircut…


I mean seriously, look at me! I hate having hair shagging in my
eyes, it makes me feel irritable and I’ve been meaning to get it cut,
but I’ve always managed to put it off because I’m lazy. Now that it’s
seriously long (for me anyway), I want to get it cut but I
can’t! It’s Easter weekend and today’s still a holiday for most shops
(Easter Monday) and Anzac Day is coming up and I don’t know when I can
get a haircut. I’ve been known to chop off my own hair
[] and I might do that again if I don’t get around to
making an appointment with a hairdresser soon. Right now, I’m just
managing by slicking my front hair back with water, and quickly putting
on my headphones and that gets it out of my eyes at least.

Went and got myself a haircut today at the Monash Hair Salon in the campus center. I had it
trimmed really short on the sides and back. The hairdresser was an intern I think. She forgot to
put the hair guard on before cutting my hair. It’s that heavy black flap that avoids tiny hairs
from going down your collar. Only remembered when another hairdresser pointed it out. I didn’t
notice myself. The haircut was okay but she’s too chatty for my liking. I was not in the mood to
talk coz I’m in a hurry to get to Caulfield to hand in my assignments. It cost A$18 so it’s
definitely an intern. Usually it costs A$25 to get a haircut. I grabbed a pizza from the pizza
place after that. I’m not really a big fan of pizza, but the other shops were closed. I had a slice
of University Volcano, which I heard was slightly spicy. Now I can take very hot food, but this was
on an empty stomach and I think the person preparing it dropped chili flakes on the pizza coz it
was saturated with it! Made me feel queasy for about two hours. πŸ™‚ Anyway, I also bleached my hair
today. Got the fudge speed2 bleach. I like
fudge, coz I still remember the large poster they had in
Christchurch back in ’96.

Contents of the box: One 25ml bleach base, one 25ml booster, one 2.5ml bleach base, one 2.5ml
booster, one 55ml developer liquid, one sachet shampoo, one sachet conditioner, one brush, one pair
of gloves, one manual. The 2.5ml small packets is for the strand and skin test, which I never

Anyway, the end result was this:

I only left it on for 15 minutes coz I was in a hurry. It turned out to be a semi disaster. πŸ™‚
The picture is taken using my webcam so the coloring nuances cannot be seen. Its lighter than what
it seems to be with some patches of ultra light colors. Kinda horrible, but I don’t want to recolor
it, so it’ll have to stay.

In a fit of righteous anger I snipped off the front locks of my hair. Hmph. That’s the last time
they’re shagging into my eyes and making me not able to concentrate on my lecture notes. I’ve been
putting off going to the hairdressers coz I don’t have enough time. The deed was done with a pair
of paper scissors. I bunched up the front locks of my hair into a manageable lock and snipped
through it with the scissors. It required 3 motions to cut through so it’s not that straight, but
when I looked into the mirror, I feel that I’ve done a good job. At least the best that a non
professional can do. =D
