As one of the partners is a Korean, Hair Story's customer base consists of both Koreans & locals. Profile of the lovely Cha: “With a vast experience of over 20 years as a Korean-trained stylist, Cha travels frequently locally & overseas for Loreal, Goldwell, Matrix & Arimino. Cha is one of the top stylists in Shunji Matsuo Hair Studio as well as a qualified trainer from Fiber Zoom, Zone & Section Hair Academy in Japan. Clients can be assured to receive quality service with an extra personal touch.”

I felt that it’s time for a perm, so a Korean friend of mine introduced me to #HairStory. Su-jeong & I also chatted about hair treatments & she adores #PhytoStory, a popular Korean scalp care system, hair spa, & a hair care system. So I decided to visit Hair Story with the intention to perm & have a hair treatment at the same time.

I wouldn’t call Hair Story a glamorous salon, but it’s decent enough with an airy & spacious green environment with potted plants spotted in the space. I was immediately drawn to the personal touches such as, the staff putting on a nice robe for me before we start. Although it's quite a common practice here in S’pore, I’m quite particular & do pay attention to tiny gestures like these.

I like my hair washed with me seated down, but this salon doesn't practise that as they felt it’s a thing of the past. Nonetheless, Vennie (Stylist Assistant) did a great job massaging my scalp so I’ve no complaints. She’s really good with her hands!

Chris, the other partner of Hair Story, attended to me after my hair wash. After examining the texture of my hair, he felt that my curls are still strong. Chris suggested that I should just trim my hair, retouch my roots with #Aveda Hair Colour, & go along with Su-jeong’s recommendation to do the PhytoStory hair treatment.

For my hair colour, Chris chose Aveda’s Dark Orange/Red 70/R shade to match the colour of my hair.

It didn’t take long as two assistants were working on me, & then they cling wrapped my hair for about 20 mins before sending me to another wash.

Next came the 8-step Phyto Octa Course which is perfect for my dry hair.

For the PhytoStory hair management system, there’re altogether 3 different types of treatments. Taking into consideration your hair condition & the type of services you’re having, customers will be recommended one of the hair spas accordingly.

I love #HairTreatments & totally enjoyed the pampering session. Expect lots of head massages with strong skilful hands.

During the one of the steps, a machine was turned on during the application of ampoules. Apparently, micro mist with distilled water helps the treatment to penetrate better; a device commonly seen in Korean hair salons, explained Vennie.

Air pollution, climate change, heat from hair dryer, repeated perms & dyeing, all contribute to a sensitive & irritated scalp. Hence, I always give my hair a proper treatment at least once a month. Since I’m looking forward to have my hair permed, Chris recommended me to have a treatment every two weeks.

    like if the hair condition is not right for a perm, they would not do it,
    like mixing the colour to match the original hair colour for the root re-touching (many would just suggest you re-do the whole head instead)
    like making sure that you could easily maintained the hairstyle after leaving the salon
    and I loved that head massage too........
