K-style Wavy Hair Is Back! 5 Salons Where You Can Get A Korean Perm
2012 Sandara Park is our ultimate inspo.
If you’ve been a K-Pop fan for quite a while now (or just a Korean culture enthusiast), you may have stumbled upon a photo of our “Pambansang Krung-Krung,” Sandara Park, sporting long, wavy locks at the MTV Video Music Awards Japan in 2012.
Sandara, popularly known as “Dara”, is a member of South Korean girl group 2NE1 that was active from 2009 to 2016. She first rose to fame in the Philippines via a local reality show, but since attaining international fame she has been known for her ever-changing hairstyles that flow with the current trends. However, if we’re talking about timeless and classic hairstyles, her wavy tresses definitely deserve the spotlight!
The K-style wavy hair seems to be coming back these days, because even local influencers like Shanika Silverio and Ashley Garcia are sporting the classic look!
What is a Korean perm?
Before Korean perms existed, there was a traditional perming technique called the “cold perm,” wherein small and medium rods are used for extremely defined curls, especially when the hair is wet. Korean perms (also called “digital or digi perms”), on the other hand, involve curling dry hair, which makes your locks more natural-looking than cold perms!
