5 Reasons Why Number76 Kept Me Coming Back


For almost 3 years now that I've been AND still supporting this particular salon. Yet, I still couldn't find a reason why shouldn't I?!

*Pfffttt*
You probably implemented that this is one of those sponsored blogpost.
But hey, nobody can make me blog unless I wanted to.
That's for sure.

It all started when I first visited Number76 to get my first strand of pinkness. 
I did my research online and came about reading Cheeserland and Fourfeetnine's blogpost about the salon. 
And I remember that tingling excitement in me when I finally had my first ever bizarre and bold color. 

I finally found my identity.
 And I most certainly found my best hairstylist, Hikky-san.
I think we're more like friends now tho... LOL!

If you've noticed, the hair coloring culture has definitely evolved over the past year as people start to accept new ideas and colors.
People are more open about different hair colors than it used to before. 
Believe me, it skyrocketed when every famous celebrity/blogger/ social media trendsetter did it.

Now lots of salons start offering bizarre hair coloring services.

 So far I'm sticking to Number76 and here's why :

1.) They deliver

One of the most disappointing thing about hairsalons is when they cannot deliver what you expect to receive. 
The feeling is mutual. 
I think I was never once being disappointed by their delivery of luscious beautiful hair. And out of the 10 times I had my hair dyed, I could say out of 9, I felt very happy with the results.

If you don't believe me, check out their instagram at @number_76 with all the happy customers that posted and tagged their beautiful hair!
Sure, sometimes I end up having a different colour than I expected and Hikky-san almost never fail to make it work.

It's all about experimenting my own hair right? 
Which I can do, and which I can't. 

Or else she'd do it again to make sure it's the right one.

2.) Worth the price

I have been asked if their service is expensive, TOO MANY TIMES.
And I would answer them : It's worth all my hard earned money, for the price of their efforts and promise to deliver.
You might say it feels over-rated but beauty definitely comes with a price, especially if you're dealing with color and looking for a unique style of your own.

Considering their dedication, the amount of effort they have put in to make sure we get the best out of it, and their excellent skills.
Which would self explain when I make the rest of my points below.

3.) Fresh 
Like sashimi. 
You might not know this but Hikky-san keeps herself updated with Japan's latest trends and fashions to bring it all to us.
They are always keeping things interesting. 
A new style, a new trend, a new idea.
And it keeps people wanting more and looking forward to.
For a person like me who loves to change my hairstyle, I find myself always being kept entertained.
When there's passion, there's self improvement.

4.) Strict Quality Control
Every product went through strict survey and testing by all the in-house senior director .
If they don't feel it's good enough, they won't use it.
Which is what we end up getting.
Only the good stuff they feel right for the customers.

Please allow me to explain a senario I am way too familiar with.
 "SOMETIMES" when a brand  promotes a new product to a salon, "SOME" hairstylist don't even try the product themselves.
And what they do?

"Your hair looks dry!!"
"By the way, there's this new hair treatment. You should try it. It says it can smoothen your hair."

MEH =.=

The big difference is this.
Every treatment package in Number76 went under heavy scrutiny before they can finally put it in their service menu.

For example, this new hair treatment service they introduced by Kerastase called :

 Fusio-Dose Hair Treatment
What's so special is that I can actually choose to mix my own treatment potion.
It ranges from moisturising, color lock, strengthening, and scalp care.
First I choose the main vial of either one.
And if I wish to add any other effects, I'll pick the small little caps of booster in front to add on.
I chose the moisturising (orange) as my main vial then added color lock (pink) and strengthen (green). 

How they mix the potion is rather interesting too!
They screw on the booster on the vial and it will puncture the capsule to release the droplets of essence into the vial.
Once everything is in, just shake to mix and ready to spray on!
I gotta admit this is slightly more pricey than their signature Ultrasonic treatment for a small vial like this but I might say that the Fusio-Dose is better.

Seriously, judgement based on size and quantity is just too old school.
Come on, you don't even judge a person's intelligence based on the size of his/her head right???
I do apply hair masks at home but usually they can only treat the outer layer of my hair.
But this treatment essence actually penetrates deep into my hair follicles for better performance.

Kinda like home facial versus professional facial spa.
Or anti-aging serum versus fillers on your face.

It's tiny, yes, but it's powerful.
Like "liquid luck" from the Harry Potter movie.

It's only available in only a few selected hairsalon so it's like a limited edition thing.
So far I know that only their branch in PUBLIKA has it so you should try it when you visit!!

5.) They Care
I still remember how managing director, Mr. Hamaguchi Daisuke never fails to say hi to me whenever he's around just to say thanks for the support!!

Throughout my visits to Number76, NEVER ONCE was I being treated like a normal come-and-go customer.

They all care for my hair and Hikky-san even rejected my request when I wanted to bleached blonde hair for the sake of my hair condition. They take note of what works best for me because they know that everyone is different.

Which explains why I still have hair intact on my scalp till today.
I would be lying if I say I'm not biasedly loved and sponsored by them but I'm not gonna do that.
Cause I don't have to do that, you know?
Still, let me make this clear.
 I am not paid to rave about hairsalons.

Many times I could have ran off to all the invitations from different hairsalons but I didn't.
Being a blogger, I thought I should be but at the end of the day there's nothing wrong with staying loyal to ONE when they are really THAT GOOD.

And good things are meant to be shared!!

#LumiLookBook : 8 Ways to Style a Tulle Skirt

Ohaii!!!

I've been missing in action lately all because of this : Click to read

Nevertheless, I make sure I still pick up time to make my videos possible so that you guys can watch em~!!

Enjoy!


Over the past weeks, I have been playing around with styling the lovely tulle skirt and I am falling in love with not only the colour, but the amazing quality of this custom made skirt.

Okay, less of my crap talking and let's get on with some still shots of the 8 styles I did!

#Look 1 : Classic Lady
The moment I got my hands on the skirt, I instantly knew it'll go super well with my satin top.
So I altered my top by stitch pinching the collar area for a more feminine touch. 
I also went with a studded black clutch for some edge and attitude.
The tulle alone stands out loud so I matched it with only a pair of pearl earrings and nothing more. 


Top // O'Bambi
Heels // Emoda
Clutch // BlaqMagicLVRS
Earrings // Jadore Janelle

#Look 2 : Casual Girl
Enough with the lazy Sunday outfit! 
Take on a whole new level with a statement T-shirt tucked into this pom pom skirt and it's casual yet interesting.
Mad lovin my leather Converse too. <3


Top // GU Japan
Sneakers // Converse

#Look 3 : On Denim 
This is also another one of my favourite looks because you can never go wrong with a good piece of denim. 
I went for a basic crop top paired with a cropped denim to balance out my body proportion and slipped on sneaker wedge for some long legs.
Call me a casual freak but I find that casual styles brings more personality in one's self.


Top // Topshop
Cropped denim // BlaqmagicLVRS
Sneaker // PUMA

#Look 4 : Sporty Thing
You can even make it look somewhat toned down with a nice sports cardigan or one with a hoodie.
Sports shoes are comfy to wear on too so it's all about comfort for this look.


Top // Stolen from mama Lumi >.<
Sports shoe // Reebok

#Look 5 : Relaxed
I have NO IDEA why I named this look "relaxed" since the whole outlook does not even make you blend into the walls. LOL!
But I kinda like long sleeves and sweaters so whenever I wear them on cold rainy days, I feel a lot more cosy.
Striped socks have always been a hit in Japan so how can I not miss it?!


Top // H&M
Shoes // PUMA
Socks // Tutuanna

#Look 6 : Lil Princess
I really felt like a flower princess for this look and I guess it's not exactly a friendly look for-all-ages, if you know what I mean? 
But it's a smart way to utilize this look for dreamy and girly photoshoots!
You know what's even better? For your bridesmaids!!


Top // Forever21 Kids
Flats // GU Japan

#Look 7 : Kinda Serious
Who says you can't match it with your collared work top for a fun fashionista look?!
White buttoned up collared top, drape on sweater, heels and socks.
Enuff said.


 Top // ZARA
Sweater // Forest
Heels // EMODA
Socks // Tutuanna

#Look 8 : Chic Princess
Bucket hats and hippie embroidered tops are in trend for a somewhat modern bohemian touch.


 Hat // WEGO
Top // Kitschen
Boots // BlaqmagikLVRS
