After attending an event at Chef Laudico Guevarra’s restaurant, I went straight to have my hair cut and colored at Status Salon. I always choose this salon, because they make my hair look and feel healthy. Perhaps this is because the products that they use suit me well.
I had my hair digitally-permed from the same salon (check out my post here). After one year, this is how my hair looks like and it’s amazing that my locks still managed to maintain the curls I got.
I was ready for a big change. So, Orland, one of the senior stylists in their Tomas Morato branch, suggested that I try a copper shade for my hair and I agreed. By the way, posted below is the price list of the salon’s services. The ‘M’ length applies to the hair length that touches the shoulder blade, while ‘L’ length applies to hair length that falls on the bra line. I decided to go with the shorter one.
To begin, Edu (his assistant), washed my hair first, so that it will be easier to cut. Their haircut costs P 350.00. Orland began to comb my hair, which is definitely a no-no for a digi-permed hair. Is this the end of my curly locks?
They started to apply the color on my locks, leaving my roots untouched. After about 40 minutes, they applied the color on the roots of my hair and I waited again for another 15 minutes. After all the waiting, it was rinsed and Orland did a few styling adjustments on my hair. Edu, then, blow dried my hair, making it straight. However, he did put subtle curls on the ends. I was contemplating whether or not I would bid my permed hair days adieu. Nevertheless, it was okay, because my hair looked nice and different.
When I took a bath the next morning, however, I was amazingly surprised to see that the perm survived all the processing and styling that my hair went through. I thought my curls were gone for good after all the combing and blow drying. Here’s how it looks now.
