Today, we went to a hair salon in the Sinchon area by Edae to get our hair done! SJ Hair may seem small in size but is super cozy and clean! The white interior made the salon look bright and the warm lights gave off a calming ambiance. The salon opened in November of 2022 so everything was brand new!

Literally, everything in the salon was brand new, even the brushes and clips and the scissors of course! The hair products the salon uses were all familiar, being from Shiseido, Milbon, Amos, Loreal, etc.

By the window is the waiting area! You can look out the window and see the streets of Edae as you wait and time will fly by. I booked in advance so I didn't have to wait.

This was my hair before my appointment. I used to have layers but it looked a bit messy, which is why I decided to come for a hair appointment. The hair designer recommended that I get the magic straight perm from the top of my scalp to the middle and a C-curl perm near the base of my hair. The procedure I got was called the Magic + Setting Perm.

First, the designer cuts my hair so it looks neater. As she cut my hair, she recommended that we do a volume perm near the scalp to give my hair more volume to enhance my facial features. SJ Hair will also recommend what looks best for you if you come to the salon! 

After the cut, the magic straight perm was applied to the hair. When you first get a magic straightening perm, it can make your hair look flat on your head, but because the designer has 15+ years of experience, she knows how to prevent that from happening. 

The chemicals are treated for 15 minutes using a machine. It wasn't too hot or uncomfortable but in the rare cases it is, just let the designer know. 

After applying heat to my hair, it was washed and dried. When my hair was washed and dried, the designer used gentle hands and even provided an eye cover and blanket so I was comfortable. She was also meticulous in each step and took every detail into consideration. 

Then it was time to apply the curls at the bottom section of my hair. Rollers were applied to my hair and heat was applied for 20 minutes. 

Then, my hair was styled with a blow dryer.

The results were just what I wanted! The layered cut with the C curls looked perfect on me. The total duration of the appointment was 3 hours but since I was comfortable, it didn't seem like a long time.

Looking at the before and after, you can tell that it looks a lot neater, healthier, and has more volume! I was satisfied with the level of service and the results! It was also relatively affordable so I highly recommend SJ Hair!
