Chez Vous 20th Anniversary 20 Lookbook Challenge #16: Sherena
AMPLIFIED TREATMENT PERM
DESIGNER: ASSOCIATE SALON DIRECTOR, VEYOND CHONG
TECHNIQUE: AMPLIFIED TREATMENT PERM
Dreaming of K-pop worthy sleek, flowing curls? Check out Chez Vous's Amplified Treatment Perm, designed and formulated by Associate Salon Director, Veyond Chong. This service was recently awarded the "Best Retexturizing Experience" by Harper's Bazaar 2015 Hair Awards.
The service starts with a wash and massage to ensure hair is cleansed and prepped for the subsequent steps. A layer of premium pre-treatment lotion is then lathered onto your tresses to provide the protection your tresses need, and to ready it for subsequent chemical treatments. This is followed by a half head permanent straightening treatment at the crown area to smooth out unnecessary frizz without flattening the hair, for easy styling and manageability back home. After that, a treatment-grade cold perm will be selectively and precisely applied to the hair ends to sculpt the lush, soft curls that are all the rage now. Lastly, as a fitting finale, your crowning glory is treated to luxurious moisture packed mask, to ensure that every strand of hair enriched and lustrous for maximum shine.

BEFORE & AFTER
TIPS & TRICKS
Step 1: Blow dry roots only.
Step 2: Dispense KMS Curl Up (20 cents size) on one palm and use the other to give it a good rub. This will avoid excessive application on a single spot.
Step 3: Focusing on mid to lower hair ends, apply KMS Curl Up on towel-dried hair. Apply evenly.
Step 4: Section hair into half, twist them and leave it to air dry.
Step 5: When hair is air dried, separate them into smaller sections.
Note: Avoid using your fingers to run through hair throughout the day to prevent frizz.
Always remember to strengthen your hair frequently after any perm services. Our top favorite is none other than Redken Extreme CAT, a protein reconstructing hair treatment. Use it thrice a week and you will have stronger hair within 2 months. This product will also prep your hair for following perm services you might want to have in the next 1 year. You will need healthy and strong hair to achieve nice looking curls.
Shampoo, towel dry, followed by Redken Extreme CAT Leave on for 10 – 15 minutes, rinse off and follow with a conditioner. Do note that the CAT treatment is primarily for strengthening; not moisturizing. Hence, it cannot replace your conditioner. In fact, one might feel that hair is a little coarse upon application, but that’s normal.
BEHIND THE SCENES
STYLIST'S PROFILE: VEYOND CHONG
Known for her expertise in fixing the most challenging hair types and conditions, Veyond is Chez Vous' in-house chemical expert and "hair fixer". If you are dissatisfied with a perm or hair colour you've gotten from other salons, Veyond is probably your best bet to help you achieve the type of hair you are looking for! Exceptionally skilled in both perm and hair colour with knowledge about hair chemicals and hair types accumulated over her 26 years of experience, it is no wonder why Veyond has recently won for Chez Vous the Harpers Bazaar Best Retexturizing (Perm) Award.
Veyond might be excellent with perm and colour but don't expect her to perform miracles! If the hair condition is not strong enough for chemical work, Veyond would strongly advise you against the hair service and propose a less-damaging alternative.
"If I can, I can. If I cannot, I cannot."
No selling, no sugarcoating. Just an honest, professional opinion that can be so rare in today's hairdressing scene. She is neither flamboyant nor charismatic. In fact, at times she can be brutally honest and straightforward.
