Step into my salon

Few outward changes to our appearance garner more reaction than a new hairstyle or colour. Celebrity style mavens can't go a day without reports on a new 'do' or hue and everyone knows the sartorial misery when a dreaded Bad Hair Day descends.

This week we test: hair masks

Colouring or too much product damages the hair. Help is at hand in the form of hair treatment masks you can use at home.

Origins Conditioning Hair Oil (HK$240/30ml)

Good for emergency use. It's convenient, as the oil can be directly applied to your hair and immediately smoothes it. The only problem is the smell is not very attractive. Tel: 3188 1826

We expose it to polluted air, damaging sun rays, smoky rooms, and then we wash it in water that we wouldn't drink without boiling first. Isn't it time to do something nice for your hair? If you're not sure where to start, here is a helpful list.

Client sues salon over perm job

A hair salon customer who claims a $200 perm left him with a red and swollen face is seeking $60,000 in damages, saying a stylist used too strong a solution.
