I have been a supporter of Shunji Matsuo hair salon for a while, so I was really pleased when they approached me for their hair sponsorship programme.
My sponsor is the flagship salon Shunji Matsuo Hair Studio located at Ngee Ann City, and the stylist I have been assigned to is Justin!
I used to frequent the flagship salon when it was at the Heerens, before it moved to Ngee Ann City about a year ago. It was therefore a feeling of familiarity when I first stepped into the hair studio recently for my first appointment with Justin, a director hairstylist.
My first hair appointment was a wash and cut affair, given that I had permed my hair just a month ago. As my previous hairstyle was a bit heavy at the bottom, Justin gave it a slightly different twist to remove the bulk at the ends, allowing the hairdo to look lighter and airier.
The final look, with some styling from Justin – i.e. it would not look like this everyday thanks to my clumsy styling skills!
As I am keen to sustain my curled hairstyle, Justin dished out the follow tips on how to take care of a perm:
1. Do not use conditioner as that might change the shape of the curls.
2. In fact, you do not even need to put too much shampoo especially at the ends of the curls. To wash your hair, apply the shampoo at the crown and massage gently, allowing the soap to flow down on its own. The aim is not to rub the curls too hard while rinsing.
3. Apply a serum regularly to nourish your hair. Just was using Goldwell Elixir, which contains Argan oil and is easily absorbed by the hair. It does not leave an oily feeling and is suitable even for oily scalps.

As part of the sponsorship arrangement, Shunji Matsuo has extended a promotion offer to all readers. Receive 10% off chemical services (perm, straightening and colour) with Justin at Shunji Matsuo Hair Studio (Ngee Ann City) when you quote “MsGlitzy” while booking the appointment. I understand that I have yet to write about these services, but if you have been thinking of getting such treatments, why not take the opportunity now?
