Valentines Day weekend is coming up, and we know most of us have already made plans with our boo. However, on this very special occassion, do not forget our girl friends who has been there for us through everything; be it hearing us go on and on and ON about this boy we just met, or stick with us through the late nights when we get our hearts broken into pieces.

So honestly, take this weekend, after a long week of work, to spend some time with them and show them some appreciation! Oh, and what better way to have a girls’ day out with a pampering session?


Our team were very lucky, as just in time for this occasion, LeeKaja Beauty Salon Malaysia invited us over for a hair pampering session at their new salon in Robinsons at Shoppes Four Season Place.


LeeKaja is a luxurious Korean beauty salon with a cafe like atmosphere, ensuring that you would have a relaxing experience as they provide you with the best beauty services from their prestigious team; promising you that you will walk out of the salon feeling like a million bucks.


This was us, a tad too excited for being able to actually spend some time out of work, and to truly just indulge in some good pampering while catching up. Funny thing about working so closely together now, we talk about work most of the time that we rarely have time to hang out or just chat, so this was a perfect unwind session for us.


The service in this salon is indeed out of this world.

Once you enter, you are greeted by their bright and cheery interior, followed by your assigned stylist who comes and check on your hair and advice you on the treatment or style it suits.



Also, they let us wear these comfy robes to stay warm while we get to be in twinning outfits, so why not?


Once you are settled down, they would bring you a menu with a cafe standard choice of drinks ranging from coffee, tea to chocolate drinks that you can pick from.


This itself was already such a treat, and to be able to have indulgent drinks while getting your hair done, you can’t ask for more.


Despite their impeccable services, it was now to put their hair treatment services to test! As Meagan and I did different treatments, here is what we personally thought of the experience:


MEAGAN - THE AVEDA SCALP TREATMENT


1. Why did you choose to do this treatment?

I wanted to do the Korean Cream Bath treatment. However, my scalp is generally oily and sensitive. Carmen, my hairstylist advised me that to do the Aveda Botanical Scalp Treatment. It would be more suitable to treat thinning hair, oiliness and to soothe scalp like mine.


2. Throughout the process of the treatment, what did you think of the experience?

I thoroughly enjoyed the experience! Initially, I thought the treatment was only focused on the scalp but it also included a quick leave on mask for my hair as well. I loved the minty, soothing feeling of the products on my scalp and that LeeKaja hairstylists gave advice to suit to their client's needs before they begin the treatment/process.


3. Do you feel any difference after the treatment?

I didn't feel a transformed difference but my scalp was definitely cleansed thoroughly, didn't get oily so quickly on the 2nd after and my hair got softer. Carmen did mention that to further improve my oily scalp, I should do the treatment at least on a monthly basis.


4. If you could change one thing about the experience, what would it be?

Honestly, there's nothing that I did not like about the experience. Although the pricing is more premium, the colour and treatments services are worth paying for, seeing as their hair stylists are really experts.



5. Overall, how much would you rate your experience in LeeKaja?

I would rate it a 4.5/5



EMILY - KOREAN CREAM BATH TREATMENT



1. Why did you choose to do this treatment?

This treatment was recommended from the stylist, as my hair is currently still quite short and I have wavy textured hair, this treatment was meant to help make my hair smoother. Oh and also, the process is super quick and fuss free!


2. Throughout the process of the treatment, what did you think of the experience?

I really enjoyed how the stylists would explain the processes (which is not always the case with other hair salons) of the treatment. Overall, it was quite enjoyable.



3. Do you feel any difference after the treatment?

Honestly, the biggest difference I felt was not about the treatment, but rather the way the stylist styled my hair, I never would have thought my outgrown pixie would had a chance to look like this! I felt like a complete different person haha.


But in regards to the treatment, I did feel my hair to be smoother but lighter somehow, unlike the weighing down of heavy conditioners or hair masks.




4. If you could change one thing about the experience, what would it be?

To be honest, there is nothing to complain about the experience. Perhaps the price is slightly on the high side for the treatments, so if I were to visit Leekaja again, I would want to try out other services like their perm or colour, just to see a bigger transformation.




5. Overall, how much would you rate your experience in LeeKaja?

4/5


This whole hair pampering session was amazing! We definitely get to spend some quality time together out of work, and enjoy ourselves while being treated like royalty with their super premium services.
