My new look!

Written by Cheryl Tay on . Posted in Cheryl Tay Blog | Blog Post of Cheryl Tay


I’ve been wanting to do soft curls for a long time but i never dared to for fear of looking too “auntie”! I’ve rebonded my hair about four times already since i first had long hair, because i really like straight hair and i look good in it!


But after having the same look for five years, maybe it’s time to do something different?


Having rebonded hair means having the hair really flat and almost sticking to the face, but it makes one look younger too! Then the Japanese started having the digital perm styles of soft, big waves and it became an instant hit.


So back to my story… I was accompanying my sister as she shopped at Sungei Wang when i spotted Team Salon and had the sudden impulse to perm my hair! I had the rest of the afternoon ahead, i didn’t really have thaaat many things to buy and i have been contemplating this idea.. Ah, stop the hemming and hawing, just do it!


Four hours and 300 ringgit later, i am changed. I like the look – soft, demure and classy. It’s quite a contrast from my usual spunky and sporty demeanour but i guess i can get used to it. Anyway, i was told such perms only last three to four months and a lot of maintenance care is needed.


So to those who are quite lazy, think twice before going to do digital perm for soft curls. I was taught how to blow dry my hair and twist and turn my hair so that the curls will remain intact instead of becoming one huge S wave. Sheesh, let’s see how long i can keep these “waves” of mine!


I’m still getting used to my new look… you should too!
