I had long straight hair for the longest time so when my hairstylist, Soo Bin, from Kenjo Salon mentioned that she would like to give me a Korean hair perm this time round, I was a bit worried as I was very used to fuss free straight hair and the last time I permed my hair was more than 6 years ago. But Soo Bin reassured me that the perm she would be creating is the latest trend in Korea now and she calls it the SUZY Layer PERM which is popularised by Miss A from Korean Group.It is also fuss free.Being game for a change of hairstyle, I agreed to go ahead since I was also tired of my current hairstyle too.
One last look before my straight hair was changed to curls.
For this perm, Soo Bin added more layers to my hair.As curls look better on coloured hair than on black hair, Soo Bin decided to give my hair a change of colour from black to ash brown.Again, if I can remember correctly, I didn’t colour my hair for at least 10 years so it was gonna be a huge change for me.
Couldn’t wait to see how the colour will turn out to be like on my hair.
I love this hair colour!
Next up, Soo Bin proceeded to curl my hair using the rollers and connecting the rollers to a heat source.
After certain timing, the rollers were removed and the top part of my hair was straightened using a flat iron.After this step, a neutralising solution was applied to the hair to set the curls first before it was rinsed off.
After which the neutralising solution was washed off and my hair was shampooed and conditioned before it was blown dried.
Take a look at the curls!I am loving this! It has been a long time since I sported curls and it is a refreshing change for me, especially with the new hair colour.
