I’ve always wanted a crazy hair colour and it is important to communicate that with your stylist if there are any reference you may bring it over and explain to your stylist the desired look you wish to achieve. That way, they’ll have a visual reference and understand what needs to be done, therefore can recommend the best solution based on your hair condition. Everyone have different hair condition (coloured, dry/damaged, thin vs thick hair etc) and a good hair stylist should be able to advise you.
After discussing with Jeff Lee (the creative director as well as the founder of JeffLee The Hair Company) he recommended to bleach first so that the colours will be visible and followed by a hair trim to add some texture and layers which will bring out the colours. He also explained the process to include a pre-hair colour treatment as well as a post hair colour treatment to protect the hair.

Hair Colouring using Hair Manicure
For colouring, Jeff recommended using Hair Manicure. Colour last longer and are more vibrant. Also less damaging as it is a treatment itself through deep conditioning and can livening up dull hair. Hair Manicure comes in a handful of colour selection; darker tones of purple, blue, red and green. Hence, depending on the desired colour, not all colours are suitable for Hair Manicure.

Overall satisfaction with my hair colour
Initially, I have requested to go with blue or purple hair, however after some discussion and based on my current hair condition the colour may not stick well. So we went with purple. I have previously done a DIY hair coloured 3 months ago, hence some of the colours need to be washed out or bleached so that the new colours will stick and stay longer. I was also advised that vibrant colours like purple will last up to 3 weeks which am glad it’s made known in advance.
Overall, after the colouring and treatment, my hair was not dry nor damaged as it’s in perfect shiny condition and it’s been a week now, still looking good. Indoors, my hair appears to be blue in different lighting, so that’s a plus point. While it’s fading now my hair has turned a lighter shade of purple close to pastel and greyish. Jeff may appear to be very cool, however, based on my observation he is very sensitive and gentle. Proper advice and ensure I’m comfortable with the procedures. I totally trust his skills and very satisfied with my hair.
What is Korean Hair Spa Treatment?
Korean Hair Spa is a hair treatment service that is done while you are lying down. Let their crews massage your back and shoulder, to relax and ease all the muscles in your body. During the process of your hair treatment, you can feel the pleasant sensations drifting away into total relaxation. According to Jeff, the name itself is entirely self-created and it’s not related to Korean at all.
The entire process of Korean Hair Spa takes roughly an hour plus. For the treatment, it is based on stylist consultation or your concerns, it’s available for hair or scalp treatment. I did a hair treatment, my stylist was very friendly and we chatted continuously throughout the treatment. I’m very pleased with the Korean Hair Spa and friendliness of the stylist.
Summary of the Korean Hair Spa treatment process:
- Hair wash, followed by gentle head massage
- Application of hair mask, followed by neck and hand massage
- Hair steaming and lastly a back massage
