In recent years, we've been seeing more and more Korean ladies working in Singapore. Most of the time, they would head back to Korea to get their hair done but for those who are keen to do their hair in Singapore, can you guess which salon they choose to go to?
Read on to find out as we follow Agent M on her first perm in Singapore!
Hi! I’m Agent M. I'm from Korea but has been living in Singapore for quite some time now. I usually go to salons in Korea as I go back quite regularly but recently, my hair has been getting a little too unmanageable for me.
My previous perm has gone away and the humidity in Singapore is making my hair really dry and damaged.
So when I came across Pro Trim @ Jurong East JEM and found that they have a number of Korean stylists here, I couldn't help but book an appointment for a perm.
The stylist who attended to me was Teddy.
Friendly, laidback and fun-loving, I found it very easy to talk to him.
He asked me about my hair concerns and what I did in the past before suggesting a specific type of perm for me.
Then the perm began.
Teddy started by giving my hair a trim to get rid of the dry hair ends.
He also reshaped my hair a little to create the necessary layers for the perm.
Next, he applied perm lotion to my hair,
concentrating on the ends. This would loosen my hair structure to make it malleable in order to perm it.
After my hair was coated in the perm lotion,
he heated up the hair to speed up the process.
When the timer rang, he removed the heater and checked the condition of my hair.
Luckily, my hair was looking good, so we could move onto the next step.
After washing the lotion off, the assistant blew my hair dry.
Teddy then came back to wrapped the hair ends with cotton
then used medium sized rollers to curl my hair.
Section by section, my hair started getting rolled up.
And when it was all done, the rollers were connected to a heating device.
After about 20 minutes, the rollers were removed to reveal very curly hair.
I was not in the least worried as this isn't my first perm.
To make the perm look more natural though, Teddy used a flat iron to straighten the curls near the roots.
Once that was done, the setting lotion was applied to my hair.
This locks the hair bonds in place to make sure the curls will stay!
He also added some additional rollers to my roots for extra volume.
And that’s it!
Despite how damaged my hair was, Teddy managed to give it quite a bit of volume without making it more damaged.
Instead, the perm contoured my face and freshened up my entire look.
Thank you Teddy for the gorgeous perm!
