Review: Sponsored by Comb Salon for my korean inspired wavy hairdo




Look no further if you wish to have a Korean inspired hairdo.
Tucked in the corner of Gemmil Lane, about 5 minutes walking distance away from Telok Ayer Mrt Station (Singapore), you will see The Comb Singapore. 


Step into the hair salon and speak to their hairstylist, they are open to consultation, so let them know what you are looking for, and await for your hair transformation under their magic fingers. The Comb Singapore, specializes in the cutting, colouring, highlight, rebonding and perming of your hair. Like many others, they do offer hair treatment services as well. More of their services and price list can be found here.

Comfortable, spacious, soft lighting and a clutter free environment sets my mind to relax mode when 
I entered the hair salon.

The cozy waiting area, for you to wait for your turn if its filled or to wait for that someone special
to finish her hair cut and pick the tab (oh, wishful thinking! You ladies.)

Their hair products are neatly arranged on the shelf. Feel free to take a look and you may find something
you require here.


Upon settling down, the hair stylist will offer you a drink of your choice from the menu. 
Don't worry about the drinks, they are complimentary. Charges for your hair services can also be found 
on the same menu.

As the environment is air-conditioned, I would recommend a hot drink. I had the TWG Silver moon
tea which was light and refreshing. They served it in a TWG Tea set with the Tea Pot. It looks nice. You can go for  hot coffee if you are not a tea drinker like myself.

There were rows of hair products located behind me for easy retrieval.
I settled myself down for consultation with my hair stylist, Stephanie. She explained to me on what I was to be expecting as the final outcome with the magazine of hairstyles in, and seek for my agreement before she proceeded with the hair transformation. 

After which, I was ushered to had my hair washed by his male assistant. He kept checking with me for any discomfort which I may feel during the wash. I was surprised that they were using a minty flavored shampoo and he explained that it was supposed to make customers feel more relaxed during the scalp massage.

During my chat with Stephanie, she shared that there are about 5 hair stylist at the moment, 1 male and the rest are females. It is quite unusual as we tend to see more male stylist around then female ones. Here, the assistants
are male. Do note that they take turns to have their off days, so do make an appointment before heading down.

Here you have a picture of my straight and black hair after my hair wash. Stephanie then proceed to tidy up my hair by snipping some frizzy ends off.  I can't wait to see the final outcome.

A series of things that happened during the 2 hours+ span of time from washing my hair, snipping the frizzy ends,
drying my hair, applying chemical products, rolling my hair. Then they used this "alien machine" a.k.a
the hair perming machine to perm my hair. Wow.. it was quite a long process but its all going to be worth the effort right?

You may like to break for a moment before they get those rolls up your head to visit the washroom or you'll be stranded till your hair is ready.

The busy salon nearer to the evening as I was done and ready to go.
Overall, the experience was a really pleasant and fuss free one, with a nice and comfortable ambiance.
So just to show you some before and after photographs before you leave my blog.


My hair was looking like this before I headed to the Comb Salon. Not too bad actually, as I had a hair cut about 1 month back? My hair is naturally straight by the way, although I have rebonded it like 2 years back due to the "dent" caused by hair ties. I really couldn't take it anymore.

So I really want to look different post 30s? I wanted a more mature, demure and lady like hair yet I still like the idea of a fuzz free, easy to maintain look. Under Stephanie's magic fingers, it was achievable.


Now, the final result. Do you like my new hair style? I really love it and have gotten compliments from my friends. Stephanie was really nice to share tips with me on how to maintain these curls as well. She mentioned that they can last 3-6 months if I do take proper care of them. Well, maybe until the next hair sponsorship comes along?

My side view looks great as well, in fact from all angles I really loved those curls! Not too small like a Maggie Noodle head, not too big until they weren't wavy enough.

 Perfect from all views.

I couldn't get enough of my new look and got more photographs taken at home. I wish to thank Rachel, Stephanie, her assistant and everyone else for making this hairdo a great one and of course, not forgetting the very personalized look. Thanks for creating the exact dreamy waves I've always wanted. The staff were also friendly, sensitive and attentive during my visit.

I highly recommend this place to everyone of my readers. I believe that your hair can change how you look, so give it some tender loving care today!
