fantastic service at hairkunst, the curve - Narcissism is Necessary

fantastic service at hairkunst, the curve

On Saturday, I put up an SOS on twitter.


And this is what Sabrina replied to me in matter of minutes. Thanks babe!


I made the call to Hairkunst while still driving and managed to score an appointment with Jojo.

At The Curve, I called them again because I couldn’t find their premise. It’s because the shop is located with the offices. You have to take the lifts behind Sakae Sushi to 2nd floor. Nice decor, nice music and complimentary internet usage (with a laptop!!!).

The service was outstanding. Jojo was a joy. She patiently listened to my hair predicament and then told me what she could do. She was never once patronising and best of all….none of those product pushing bullshit.

I told her I wanted a soft fringe and layered body to offset the kink where my straightened and natural hair meets. She gave me exactly what I wanted but better.

#1 – Before

#2 – Shampooing

#3 – Nip Nip Nip

#4 – Final touches

#5 – Result

#6 – Ms. Jojo of Hairkunst, The Curve

The price for my do? I had earlier withdrawn RM500 to make sure I had enough to pay for the cut and some impending products I may succumb to purchase.

I was shell-shocked to be charged the grand sum of RM55.

    Wow :) I’m going to try, after I grow my hair longer. Thanks Kim!

    Awesome! Good hairdressers are hard to come by and this one’s super affordable! Now… do I cheat on mine? :P

    They also do really awesome hair extensions – a new Austrian technique using some sorta laser fusing so it lasts the whole year and you cannot tell where the hair and extension meet. Except it costs like RM3000 :S

    But they really are awesome, I highly recommend them too! Everyone is so freaking nice and friendly!

    nick: i don’t doubt that they can do a fantastic job with men’s hair.

    pb: hehe give them a try. who knows there’s a reason to start an affair :D

    mell: wtf rm3000! yeah everyone was so nais! i feel like going there just to blowdry my hair and stuff

    @eyeris: It’s “Kunst” which means “Art” in Norwegian or “Art/Skill” in German.
    @kim: I’m alright, just lot of challenges at work. Have one leg in the door, one leg out. Damn economy makes me unsure. Not to mention the work environment, etc.

  17. eyeris May 12, 2009 at 7:46 am #

    @Fieran: Gee whiz, you mean they didn’t mean that other word after all? Heh.

  18. julian May 12, 2009 at 10:52 am #

    ‘kunst’ also means ‘art’ in Flemish; and ‘wet’ means law – hence the “Kunst-Wet metro station” in Brussels :/

    I just had my 1st haircut by Jojo today & it turn out better than what I wanted. :)

    Btw, Jojo has much shorter hair now but still maintain her natural curls.
