The romance and femininity behind manes blessed with whimsy ringlets. Late last year, I had toyed with the idea of getting a perm esp since I did like seeing my hair in curls (e.g. birthday and parties in 2009) but I’m still uncertain if I have it in me to actually maintain the curls as one should. Memories of childhood curling disaster comes to mind, whenever I come close to considering it. I guess that experience left me somewhat traumatized. However, seeing the curls on my bestfriend when she went off and got the currently popular treatment, digital perm, I was downright envious!
And then my sister arrived and told me she’s looking to get her hair done as well and getting a digital perm was one of the options. I quickly mentioned that I know of a place where she can have that done, courtesy of my bestfriend Mel, she agreed so off I went to set an appointment at Beauty Brick.
Now, check out the curls! It’s made of awesome! Yes, yes. It wasn’t me but my sister who has the gorgeous curls and pretty ringlets. Sigh.
Watching Mr. Shin work on each lady in the salon (they were fully booked that night!) was actually entertaining. He certainly seemed like he knows what he’s doing.
It doesn’t hurt that the staff are very cordial, hospitable and well-trained. Only thing that I didn’t appreciate was having to wait almost an hour even when we did set an appointment.
It looks like my sister’s loving her new curls, eh? I reckon she’ll be needing the OSIS Curl Me Soft more than I would (yea, I did end up giving to her, hehe).
Of course, we all know this sort of thing takes hours to do (approximately 4 hours in my sister’s case), can you imagine what I did while I waited? I didn’t just go and dump my sister in the salon and escaped to the nearest Starbucks I can find. I did stick around and talked to the folks who’ll be handling her hair and asked them to give more information on what’s about to take place (esp since the sisters are new to the whole thing). I skipped as soon as she was well on her way to curl-dom and when I got back, I was able to see all that (hence the photos) plus did a little cam-whoring too. Hehe. (Trivia: The only Nikon camera that I use is my sister’s. I’m a solid Canon fan, you see. LOL)
