Being a writer/blogger, I have always been lucky to try out all the fabulous spas, aesthetic, grooming and hair products as well as treatments sometimes way way ahead of everybody else. L'Oreal is one of the brands that has been very generous, throwing fabulous parties, offering hair-makeover and sending products for me to try.
But not too long ago, I was asked to go to Curlers & Trimmers salon in Desa Sri Hartamas on an assignment. I was supposed to write about a special hair treatment using Redken products on this cabin crew from a local airlines. I just had my hair chopped off a few days prior to that because it was in such a bad shape from all the straightening and ironing that I was doing on daily basis. So it was short but really really badly cut that I knew I had to get it fixed.
So I went to Curlers & Trimmers with my fucked up hair, put a confident smile on my face and was introduced to the owner of the salon, Annita Hisham who has been in the industry longer than my being in this universe. I instantly liked her for her passion and knowledge not only in hair styling but also all the scientific aspects of the Redken products that her salon is using.
On top of the feature that I am writing on the cabin crew makeover, I wanted to feature Curlers & Trimmers and Annita here because she is really good at what she is doing and she knows her shit. I mean I have been to all the big salons across KL (thanks to L'Oreal) but none of the owner or creative director has the same passion as Annita. So I (shamelessly) asked for her help to fixed my hair and boy she did more than just that! She gave me a special Redken pH Bonder treatment that really did wonders to my hair and of course a short do that is so perfectly done and styled.
Annita told me she decided to go with Redken as Curlers & Trimmers' preferred product after looking for so long for just the right one. Curlers & Trimmers was first opened in Wisma Lim Foo Yong on Jalan Raja Chulan upon her return from the UK in 1983. It was then moved to Hartamas as Malaysia's first loft concept salon. Annita also trains up and coming hairstylists at her salon, taking students from local colleges and academies under her wings for internship. She is also all about educating and sharing her knowledge, not only with these students but also with clients that come to Curlers & Trimmers. She gave me some really good advice about my hair!
Thank you Annita for fixing my hair and all the advice!
