Mini-Review for Glitz Saloon.

Had my haircut a couple of days ago with baby.
Sorry that I post a review up only after a few days, as I'm busy with work and stuffs.
Made an appointment with baby in the noon, went over to the saloon.
Their staffs are really friendly, thumb up for that.

Okay so basically, appointment means on time. But when I arrived in the saloon, I still got to wait for quite sometime before my turn for an haircut.
Kinda sucky actually but I guess it doesn't matter since I'm not rushing for time. And I think, for appointment the waiting time maybe for the stylist to prepare at most will be 15 mins?
Seems like I waited for like 45mins? Lol? So I guess, book appointment at 1PM, go at 2PM. Lol.
When I arrived at their saloon, I saw some of her customers with really ah-beng/punk hairstyles.
I find it ugly leh, seriously no offense to anyone here or to baby. But it don't really look nice and its weird too.
If you guys happened to see their guy's hairstyle at their Facebook, it look kinda like the same.

Now to haircut, I find baby's haircut not as good as mentioned in this forum.
The way she thinned out my hair is really horrible or should I say far too much, and some part of my hair length are imbalanced.
Sideburns and back really bad though, very messy & out of style. Maybe she could do much better job on the sideburns.
Overall, haircut pretty bad, hair too thinned out, uneven length & side burns messed up.

Staff-Service - Really good, real friendly and helpful. 9/10.
Haircut - Turned out quite bad. And it doesn't seems like what some forumers mentioned. 6/10.
Hairstylist "Baby" - Very friendly and chatty. A really nice person to chit-chat! But if you are a quiet person, you will find her annoying. 8/10.
Should I recommend peoples/friends? - If you don't mind uneven length, overly thinned out hair, waiting time, messy sideburns, ah-beng/punk hairstyles then maybe you can visit her.

Will I return? - Hmmmmm yes and no? I dunno.
Last but not least, haircut for guys @ $28 nett.
If you guys looking for arimino wax, they are selling them but price I never ask.
So bascially, its cut first, wash later then style.

Overall - 6.5/10

I'm a regular with maeda and tsuji, since they left Komachi it has been a problem for me to look for a hairstylist who can cut my hair well.

Wow didn't know that OSiS+ Dust It powder also got fakes ? I almost wanted to buy online via Gmarket etc as I saw the price was really cheap!

So where sells the cheapest original? It's quite a small bottle so if I'm using it almost daily, I suppose it'll last less than a month or so lol..

Nice, please update me! Wanna go back to her...

Actually I had my haircut at Komachi for like 12-15times liao. Tried Ejima too, but I still preferred Tsuji leh maybe she know what I want. Maeda and Ejima is good too but Tsuji got what I wanted. So yah... lol

Thinning way too much is 1 thing, but uneven length and untidy sunburn is a disaster. Lol. I feel like going back to baby because I like her personality, haha chatty and friendly. But chat and doing haircut is big different. Lol.

Gmarket is fake for sure! Although it can work...

I think can last long than your wax... I just finished my wax but the powder i have yet to finish(i got the powder 2months before the wax)... I remember baby(when she was at flhair) told me one bottle can last for a few months for the saloon...

For me, I use 3-5 light dashes will do! Since you going to use wax after that...

I think going to the parkway shop to take a look... I got it for 28 dollars at saloon that time...

Up for awareness of fake OSIS DUST IT Powder

My stylist introduced me to this hair styling product which can give volume to my hair which is also flat and soft! I was amazed by the effects!

Later, I found it in Gmarket and it only selling for 5 bucks... So decided to give a shot since I bought mine for near 30 bucks..

But I did not expect much! Cos we know that what too good to be true, are most likely not true!
And in the end, it turn out to be fake!

Let compare the differences!

The Box


The left is original while right is fake
As you can see the print of the box on the fake has a lower contrast!

The Bottle


Again, the left is original while right is fake.
As you can see the bottle design is different in term of size and font!
I weighed them and the fake bottle is definably light and make cheaper material!

Real

Fake
From here, we clearly see that the fake only uses sliver font while the original uses both white and sliver! There are smudge on the font which show poor printing.

Left = Original, Right = Fake

If you realise, the cap is design is alittle cheapo! Like knobs on MIC toy!


Left = Original, Right = Fake
The material of cap inside to control the flow of the powder is different too!

The Content!

Original

Fake



This is worst part! The fake looks like it mixed with some plastic or random powder! It is coarse as compared to the original which fine like icing sugar! I can feel that the fake have a weaker matt feeling as to the original!
