Let’s face it-beautiful tresses is tough! But at Avant Garde (previously known as Georgina’s) , gorgeous hair is a guarantee! I initially just wanted a trim but was mesmerized by one of the staff’s striking curls. My oh my, I’ve gotta have that hair! It was really a spur of the moment thing and I absolutely love the results 🙂
After a relaxing hair wash and head massage, Georgina layered the ends to prep the hair for the perm
Next, lotion was applied to soften the hair. It also contains argon oil to nourish and prevent dryness.
Sections of hair was meticulously rolled around ceramic rollers. A stunning perm is an artwork by an accomplished stylist; how well the curls turn out depends on the quality of the lotion and skills of the stylist.
White sponges were added to protect the face and scalp
Viola! The curls!
After some twirling and blow drying….
…I have picture-perfect hair 🙂
Twist and pin up for cascading curls!
This is what the hair looks like just after a shower. Notice how prominent the curls are when their wet?
The ceramic perm is surprisingly easy to manage-the only styling required is to apply hair curling cream when its wet, then twirl (with fingers) occasionally while it air-dries. There’s no need to use a hair dryer to achieve this effect. If you’re short on time and need to dry the curls quickly, simply twirl your hair while blow-drying.
Do set aside 4 hours for ceramic perms. The salon’s ambiance is classy and comfortable, plus there’re heaps of magazines to keep you occupied so I’m sure you’ll enjoy your time there. Even better, get a mani and pedi done at the same time!
Much love to Georgina for the ravishing curls 🙂
