For those of you who have been working from home during this Covid-19 period, how are things going for you?
Unknowingly, it has been almost 6 months since I started working from home. It has been mostly good so far but some days can be rather overwhelming for me. Now that the girls are back to school, I find myself overly engrossed in work and take lesser breaks. In general, I feel as though I have been working non-stop, throughout the day and night. It has happened so many times and I always tend to end my day feeling drained with super messy locks! Furthermore, not needing to get out also means you don't need to dress up. On most days, I just had to remind myself to comb my tresses before jumping onto a zoom call.
To spark things up, I randomly asked Emma to help style myself. up. She jumped on the idea and was super excited! She happily took up my challenge to do up 5 working from home ‘dos like a master stylist without much help from me. She enjoys playing around with different styles. At times, she does a better job than me!
1. Pig Tails
She started off with my most favourite look and that's a pair of pig tails! This look, surely makes me appear a few years younger! Think it would look better with some curls!
2. Low Pony TailNext
up, it's a low ponytail! I used to love high ponytails but I'm starting
to love low ponytails a lot more these days! Just because they are much
neater and classier!
3. Ballerina BunAs a ballerina, Emmalyn always put on a bun. She learnt how to tie her own bun a couple of years back and is pretty good at tying them now. Do you know that there are more than 10 ways to tie a bun?
4. BraidsI tried very hard not to intervene with how she wants to style my locks. But too bad for this look, I had to interrupt her because her original idea was to tie 4 long braids around my head.
I'm proud to say that I've never really taught her how to braid. She learnt this skill by watching how her childcare teachers used to braid their students’ hair.
5. Braided Half-Tie
came her last styling idea. Instead of doing a normal half-tie, she
added braids to it. Creative right! This is the front view and it looks
so pleasant. She even suggested going for this look for my next zoom
call with my colleagues.
Looks pretty fancy from the back view! Haha!
Bonus: Modified Pig tails
didn't want to stop at 5 so we had the 6th! This is a modified version
of the pigtail. She first used the end of the comb to select two small
sections of my locks at both sides of my head. Then she slowly put a
band around each section. Moving on, she divided my tresses into two
huge equal sections and tied them up separately. She was so excited to
call them the ‘modified pigtail’ style. I am thoroughly impressed with
my daughter’s creativity.
Emmalyn certainly had fun being my stylist for the day! Bored of your
daily ‘Work from Home’ look? Why not get your little ones to help you
spruce things up? It's a fun mummy-daughter bonding activity! Last year,
I let her do my make up for an outing and she was so thrilled! As a
mother, I feel activities like these give me an opportunity to notice
the talents of my kid. Moreover, their motor skills improve and they are
well-occupied with something useful.
While I love my long tresses, I really think they need some trimming and perhaps a new colour soon. My last visit to a salon was in December last year. And after much procrastination, I've finally made an appointment with Yoon Salon for a pampering session coming week! Read on for their ongoing promotion!
Why Have I Chosen Yoon Salon?

upcoming hair salon in town. Their team of stylists gleam with numerous
years of experience in this industry. There is no technique that they
are not aware of. They are highly equipped with the right skills to
perfectly style a fresh new haircut or provide a satisfying treatment.
YOON’s management ensures that the products used on clients are gentle
and of high quality. I checked out their website and noted that all
their treatments are right now going at a promotional rate of SGD 28.
This deal is only available online and I found this incredible. Since
the rate is affordable and I am in great need for hair therapy, I just
knew that I should be giving this boutique a try.
I know that I definitely need a new coat of colour but I'm still contemplating whether I should also add in a perm or to change my look by trimming my hair short. Given that there are so many new modern hair colouring techniques today, I guess I'll just leave it in the good hands of YOON’s professional stylist to help me find the perfect look!
While looking through their website, I even saw a whole section full of articles that speak about hair care.
Do you want to know about hot and cold perms or about digital perming or about S-Curl rebonding? Fret not, all the information you need to clear your doubts is available on their website.
