Getting re-permed: Digital perming at Soiree Salon and Spa
Exactly seven months after my first perming session with Soiree Salon and Spa, I finally found the time to go back to have my hair re-permed. Unlike the previous sessions, this time there was no hesitation. Although I do miss my long, straight hair, I believe that I look better with curls, plus it’s so much easier to maintain (and style!) So anyway, let me now take you through what happened in photos and captions!
The salon didn’t change one bit since the last time I dropped by! How I wish I had more time to go here for my monthly services. Thank you Soiree Salon and Spa for always being so generous! I promise to try and visit more often this year!
Here is a list of their services. View more on their Facebook page here.
I came with my friend Krizia, who also had her hair permed that day! Thank you for giving her a special discount! :)
Here’s me and my seven month old digi-permed hair! My hair grows super fast, so I decided to have a few inches chopped off (also because this will help the curls stay longer since the longer the hair the heavier it is, therefore shorter life for your curls)
First I had a quick shampoo. A chemical that would give me my curls was then applied and I had to wait 15 minutes or so. My hair got washed again after.
Then it was time for the rolling! Again, Ken (their only stylist, who is absolutely amazing) amazed me with his consistency. Like what I said in my old post, he was extremely obsessive compulsive with everything he does (which I think is a must for his profession) I got a mix of big and medium curls this time around. If you aren’t sure what kind of curls you want, bring a picture. Krizia wanted Jesse Mendiola’s curls so I told her to bring a photo for inspiration. Ken almost always gets it right. He’s that good!
Before they connected me to the machine, I asked to go to the bathroom (if you’re thinking of going to the bathroom, this is the time to do it!) The photo has nothing to do with it, by the way. That’s just me and Krizia being our true selves. LOL!
Krizia (who by then was finished and supplied everyone with pandesal from the bakery across the street LOL) kept calling me Loki the whole 20 minutes I was hooked to this machine. For first timers, expect that it will get a bit hot. When it does you could always just tell the staff and they will re-arrange the rolls and adjust the machine.
After I got disconnected (LOL), we waited for my hair to cool, then a nuetralizer was added. A few minutes and a session with two hair blowers later, I was done!
Me and Krizia with the ever so talented Ken! Thank you and great job as always!
Before and after. Notice how high up the start of the curls are now! :)
