New Hair, New Life
February 10th, 2011
Some of you may know that I’m currently going through tough times. As we all say, girls like to do a hair makeover whenever they want change in their lives. Following that popular tradition, I decided to have my hair permed.
If you have been following HeaRty’s Haven for quite some time then you would know that my choice of salon will always be Tony & Jackey Salon. This wasn’t my first time to avail of digiperm at Tony & Jackey Salon. My hair was a bit shorter now since I got my haircut a lil over a year ago. I’m sure this time, the effect would be different.
As I entered the salon, I noticed that they changed their brand from Tony & Jackey Salon to Tony & Jackey Bangs. I wonder why but I guess, they really just need this change. You can now see some black colors in the area. I must admit I like their old logo better.
I was delighted to find out that they have an ongoing promo till March 31, 2011 wherein we can get digiperm for only Php1,500! That was what I got. I didn’t care much that they used Korean medicine or it didnt have treatment & haircut. I just want my hair permed and I didn’t wanna spend too much. To my surprise, they made me sign a waiver saying that using Korean medicine will make my hair dry & fizzy plus curls will not stay for a very long time. It didn’t scare me though, I continued with it.
As usual, the process was basically the same. Wash hair first then they asked if I wanted to have a haircut to suit the perm (additional Php500). I agreed. Much better to have it layered so curls would look better.
Applying Korean medicine to my hair was next. After, my hair was put in a dryer for several minutes. Next part was the most exciting one, putting my hair to the perming machine. Yes, it was definitely a scary scene. Do you remember the Filipino movie Zuma? I kinda looked like one with all those springs all over my head hahaha!
The whole process took about 4 hours. It was definitely long but it was worth it. I love my new look! It signifies a lot too. It gave me encouragement to start over. Felt like I have a renewed life. To top things off, I did it during Chinese New Year!
