1. Get a perm
How a perm turns out depends on many factors such as the texture and condition of your hair, the skill of your hairdresser, the type of perming solution used, and even the temperature used to perm your hair, you should have a clear consultation with your hairdresser before committing to the treatment.
2. Braid your hair
If you’re looking for a less permanent way to get beachy waves, braiding your hair and keeping them in place for an hour, or better yet, overnight, will help you achieve those loose, beachy curls. We find that braiding the hair while it’s damp yields more defined curls – but you should dry your hair roots and scalp before braiding, because dampness can cause scalp irritation and encourage bacterial and fungal growth. The best way is to blow-dry the roots of your hair and scalp, then braid your hair, then blow-dry everything before going to bed.
2. Braid your hair
Spritz on some hairspray to keep flyaways at bay and to prevent midday frizziness. Try this firm hold hairspray from Percy & Reed that keeps your hair style in place while at the same time, it protects your hairstyle from the humidity that we face in Singapore. Talk about a good multi-tasker!
3. Tong your hair
It’s the most reliable way to get defined and runway-worthy curls, but it also requires the most effort – and loads of practice before you can do it right.
Remember to apply a heat-protecting spray to protect your hair before using the heated tools. Use a heated tong and wrap sections of your hair around the curler. The curls should spiral away from your face at the sides to frame your face better. Inward curls towards your face can make your face look bigger and shorter because of the volume and shape it creates. For the rest of your hair, you can work the spiral in whichever direction feels more intuitive to you. Once you’ve got the curls in place, work some hair wax and finger comb through to create texture and to hold them in place.
