Hairdresser for curly hair needed

Postby gemtwinkle » Tue, 18 Sep 2007 9:28 pm

Hi there
Can anyone reccomend a hairdresser for curly hair? My hair has gone crazy with the humidity since I arrived in Singapore so I have decided to cut it much shorter (its now down my back) - but i'm nervous about doing such a drastic cut with someone who may never have cut curly hair before. Can anyone help? Or does anyone have tips on how to cope with curly hair in the humidy - stop the frizziness??

Thanks!

We discussed it on the forum before, but i can't find the relevent thread.
I have wavy thick dark-blonde hair aswell...I usually go just for trimming only or cut a fringe. You may try these saloons:

Le Salon, Takashimaya, Daniel Ng. He makes his work perfect! (but quiet costly: up to 400-600 SGD for colouring and haircut)
Casey в Palais Renaissance ( i think the master's name is Alice or smth like that)
Colour Bar in Holland Village is quiet o'k aswell

I have fine; natural very curly hair. I go to Sunny at Shunji Matsuo salon at Wellington building. She does a very good job with my curly hair. I've been going to her for about 3 years, I like to keep my hair chin length.

Cut is $75. I've never liked my curly hair until I found her. All my past stylist would recommend me to straighten my hair. I think it makes their job of cutting easier!

I use Loreal Smooth Perfect Instant control fluid on towel dried hair and let it air dry, it leaves my hair soft with define curls, keeps the hair frizz free. I hate those foams and gels that leave the hair crunchy!

I also use the Invisi Fx hairspray to keep the hair in place, holds well and easy to shampoo off. They are about $12 each, you may find them at supermarkets and pharmacies. They work well for me and not too expensive.
