$260 for four hours
Ever scroll through Instagram and wish you had cascading locks or a tousled bob like a supermodel or
It girl? Well, now you can, thanks to Kimage and its customising body-boosting and texturising treatments that help you achieve the curls, waves or added volume you seek.
The experience begins with a personal consultation with a stylist who assesses your needs, wants and, not to mention, the lifestyle you lead to ensure that your curls last long after you have left the salon. From cold and hot perms to an airwave perm—a natural-looking curl treatment first made popular in Japan—the Kimage team is well-trained to craft a hairstyle that will compliment your face shape, hair type and personal style for the most flattering, bouncy ’do. And this goes beyond curls—many get a perm to boost hair volume by adding a lift to flat roots.
As with such hair re-texturising processes, be prepared to set aside at least half a day to properly indulge in the treatment, especially for those with thick, dry or coarse hair—such hair types usually require a softening treatment to start. The following steps will then vary depending on style and hair length, but it usually involves a purifying hair cleanse, conditioning, cut and cream application that breaks hair bonds before being reformed around heated ceramic rolls to create the desired curl and volume.
The result? Bouncy, fuss-free and low-maintenance locks that will have you looking fabulous all the time.
When it comes to styling a salon-like ‘do, drop wet curls onto an upward-facing diffuser attachment on your hairdryer till curls are soft and fluffy, then set with a hydrating mist with a soft hold, or scrunch in some mousse to create volume and definition without weighing hair down. But if you prefer to let your hair air-dry, just apply some Lucicare Treatment Milk (available at Kimage) for a natural, bouncy texture.
