(I wanna thank all of you who left nice words and gave me so much encouragements in my previous Life in Singapore blog post. Now i like you guys even more hahaha.)
If Number76 Bangsar 1 (which is now closed to be combined with Bangsar 2)is a cozy retro beach house, Number76 Bangsar 2 is a rustic, old-time street cafe, Number76 Starhill Gallery is a luxurious pampering parlour, Number76 Mid Valley is a basement secret society, and Number76 Publika a is a little secret garden library, then Number76 Singapore is…
Our new life.
I spent many sleepless nights battling between pregnancy hormones and anxiety when i could not figure out what my life would lead with our family potentially moving to a new country. But the decision was made and we had to just bravely embrace it.
I am just so glad that everything falls into place so perfectly albeit the missing papa for weeks, the insane traveling back and forth, the struggle with everything that could possible go wrong (which went wrong), the uncertainly about the future.
IT IS FINALLY HERE!! A dream come true for many.
It’s located at Orchard Gateway 2F, just an escalator/elevator away from Sommerset MRT station!!
The signature Number76 cafe-ish chic. Wooden you like to come over and just relax?
The washing basin omg. For this new branch they have upgraded it to something very awesome. More on that later!!
I love how there’s ample sunlight and lots of greens to soothe your mood. A little reminiscent of the Publika branch.
If you sit by the window, you are overlooking the Sommerset Skate Park! The danna loves it.
And a matching baby chair!!! I think all salons should have this because it’s a life saver.
So so so so so!!!
Junya had his first hair cut as the first customer of Number76 Singapore! And it’s mama’s turn now.
Qiu and i are the second customers after JunJun. Both of us in shit, unwashed hair. Junya was happily taking his nap so mama gets a breather to just relax and go for a head spa.
Ok let’s talk about the kick-ass wash basins.
It is a freaking First-class flat bed auto-reclining wash basin chair!!!! All these Japanese inventions are award worthy omg. You never have to bend your neck backwards again like zombies with a strained neck.
My favorite Tansan wash. After this sparkling scalp cleansing, you can go up to 4 days without washing your hair and it is still sparkly fresh. Don’t ask me how i know. HAHAHA.
The dirt off my scalp. Apparently. Cheers!
Full Head Color
My colorist of the day was Steve!! I told him that i wanted to keep that tone so he picked a mix of beiges for me.
By the way!! Too many people have asked me, two pregnancies in a row:
ISIT OK TO DYE HAIR WHEN PREGNANT AH!!
I did it both my pregnancies! You can tell your stylist that you are expecting, so they will be careful and not apply near your scalp. Although some people totally don’t mind also.
And if you want to be extra careful, there’s also Organic Color selections! Just keep in mind that for organic, you can’t go very light since it’s mostly natural dark tones.
The signature biscuit that Junya loves soooo much.
Oh ya he is awake now!!!
He was just happily enjoying his biscuit from the salon. He ate two and asked for more. I rejected his request lol.
Ultrasonic Premium Treatment
When i had to go for hair wash then Qiu will take over Junya and talked to him like he’s her long lost friend XD.
Meredith trying to smell her bae.
Finally my hair was done!!!
Beautifully messy. It’s art, okay, people. ^^
Thank you Number76, and thank you JunJun for accompanying mama for such a boring event for toddlers.
Nah give you a kiss.
Two happy (and chio lolol) mamas and two happy babies!!
Hahahha one of those NG shots.
Number76 Orchard Gateway Reception Party!
Haih don’t talk about champagne liao. I didn’t even like alcohol but for BOTH my prenancies when i saw champagne it was like druggies saw his fix omg. I was like GIMME THAT and all my friends were like NOOOO DON’T GIVE HER. Haih.
Junya was sleeping and totally missing out the fun lol.
Omgomgomgomg got superstar come!!!!
I was busy chatting with other bloggers when i realized my son was gone! I looked for him frantically and guess who kidnapped him!!!
It’s Wei Liang hahahha omg ok give you give you kidnap.
Spot the other two ah boys from Ah Boys To Men at the background hahhaha.
Carolyn who looked extra pretty today because…. she may perhaps be a little dating someone hahaha. And that’s me telling Mini Cheese, don’t worry, mama won’t make you drunk. But just in case, just go to sleep. Hahaha.
Miyake with her freshly done dolly hair from the afternoon by Steve!!! I swear she is 10X even prettier in real life!
And omg she’s trying to get my baby drunk.
I mean the other baby. Hahhaa no la he was drinking just melted ice XD
JunJun drinking apple juice like a pro.
And so happy i finally met allllll the famous Singaporean bloggers all at once!!!
Erm Qiu, everyone was trying to be demure, what’s wrong with you LOLOL.
Ok a proper one!! Miyake, Qiu Qiu, Sophie and Yutaki!
I only had one sip!!! Ok fine. Two.
Number76 CNY Promotions!!!
Other than the 20% discount for all services, there’s even a lucky draw!!
I mean, discounts are already unheard of for the hairstyling industry (although i hav ebeen with Number76 for 4 years now and i am used to the idea of no price-hike), they are basically throwing free money away lol.
And the most important thing…
Obviously it’s more expensive if you convert to MYR but if dollar to dollar is is waaaaaaaay lower in Singapore!
You can see the full menu price here on the website!
Go go go!
PS: Actually i probably posted this too late because apparently the new Orchard Gateway branch is fully booked all the way till CNY. And apparently i was told by the stylists that there are like 200 people on the waiting list @____@. But the stylists said they will work magic to cater to as many customers as possible!
You guys can always fly to Malaysia branches la hahhaha. Cheaper summore XD.
Congratulations on the opening of the salon Cheesie! It looks amazing! Would be so much fun to see what the stylists would do with my hair here! I’ve always been a bit worried to try out hair salons in Asia whenever I visited since European (Caucasian) hair is so different, but I think I want to give Number76 a try if I ever come to Singapore or Malaysia in the future!
Hi Elise, so happy to hear that!! Please let me know if you need any help with appointments 🙂
URGHHHH I called the other day and they were fully booked. Sad. 🙁
>.< I think they are trying to accommodate more people on the waiting list now!
Lol yea the lucky draw is awesome! I won $15 off current bill which i chose to credit into my account instead for future use on top of the $5 voucher they gave me. So on my next visit i will have $20 off! Wahahaha
Lucky you!!! 😀 Hope you had a great experience!
congrats once again cheesie! wa fully booked! so happy for you guys, may you prosper and open even more outlets here 😀
Thank you Cam 🙂
i think they are using the same jap basin for the newly renovated starhill outlet right? i remember it is extra comfy and ergonomically good!!
Oh really?? The last time i went there it wasn’t changed yet hahaha. Glad you have a great experience!
Congrats Cheesie! I had a great experience at the original NALU salon in Tokyo! I wrote about it on my blog and posted a vlog about my hair makeover at busyforlife.wordpress.com and would be so happy if you took a look at it! Thank you 🙂
Hi C, i remembered you!!! Deji san sent me a photo and told me hey, your readers from the US is here!!! And i was so surprised cuz all of you looked like superstars!!! XD Thanks so much for sharing your experience 🙂
I was lucky enough to get my hair cut and dyed by line papa and it was such a great experience!! (And he helped me with my japanese homework…HAHAHAHAHAHA paiseh max) but i’m so happy with the service and my hair so I hope number 76 proceeds to do super well! And I hope that your stay in SG will be great ^^
Wa wa wa got extra service lolol. I’m so glad you enjoyed the experience! Thanks for your well wishes too! Please come again 🙂
