After so many years letting my hair grow I finally decided to do something with it. It was limp and boring anyway, so I went ahead and permed it. And I am glad I did… I’m really happy with the results! My hair is soft with natural looking curls and it’s not damaged at all, yay… Thanks to Ms. Pak, my favorite hairstylist! ^^
I got really inspired by a beautiful model… Gisele Bundchen. I love her hair… it is FaBuLoUs..!!!
I have known my hairstylist Yun Pak (I call her Ms. Pak) for almost 8 years now– ever since I moved to the U.S. She has an great talent on what she does & I love how she can make me look pretty every time I pay her a visit. Recently she opened her own hair salon (called Pink Comb) so I decided to go check it out.
The place itself is cozy & cute! And it’s located in the heart of Koreatown. There’s also a parking lot in the front. I will attach the address at the end of this post.
I showed her the Gisele’s hair picture and she instantly knew what I wanted… So I let her do her magic~
I had to Photoshop a pair of sunglasses there… it’s embarrassing, you know… ><
She recommended me to do a regular perm. The whole process took about 2 hours. I had to leave permed hair unwashed on the next day, but my hair didn’t really smell that bad from the hair products… (Big plus!)
My hair was still a bit wet… Anyway, this is dear Ms Pak ^^
On my way to the club I took another picture…. my hair got dry by then and it looked even better!
My hair didn’t come out exactly like Gisele’s… but it has loose sexy curls & volume. Woohoo! XD
Here is the Before & After pictures:
And that’s it for my hair makeover! <3 it!
You might want to continue to reading if you have permed hair. Ms Pak gave me some tips on how to make my curls look prettier! ^^
1) Wash hair in the morning
2) Blow-dry hair in a 3-step process:
- Pick a few strands of hair and roll them using your fingers
- put the spiral hair coil inside your hand
- dry the hair that’s inside the palm of your hand (warm, low speed setting)
3) After you’re done drying your hair, apply “Brocato” Curl energizing cream on your hair (I bought it at her hair salon for $15)
I like this product because it has a good consistency.. (it’s not thick like a pomade or too watery like a hair gel), it makes your hair curlier and shinier and it smells good.
Apply Brocato scrunching your hair upwards like this:
4) Don’t brush you hair. If you wish to detangle your hair just use a large/wide toothed comb.
And that’s it!
I really recommend Ms Pak… she has a lot of experience & know-how (in cutting/ perming/ and dyeing hair for women and men also).
If you wish to make an appointment with her, here’s the info:

Have a good one!
