Miss Glitzy was invited to Komachi the Hair Cult for a hairscapade! Given that she has been going ga-ga over the wavy bob recently, Miss Glitzy naturally asked if she could perm her bob!


And so she did!

A brief intro on Komachi, the Japanese hair salon located at Liang Court provides a wide range of hair salon services for both men and women. To top up the holistic experience, you can even de-stress by getting a “Komachi Wellness Massage”.

The hairstylist for the day was Horii who is very new to Singapore but has accumulated a wealth of experience in Tokyo. He was a hairstylist in Japan for 8 years and was progressing on fast track there! He was involved in shoots for VIVI and SEDA magazines in Japan. Horii speaks some English, so communication wasn’t much a problem.

According to Komachi’s website, Horii-san is a proficient make-up artist and skilled kimono dresser! Now, Miss Glitzy missed the opportunity of asking him for makeup tips!

For those who have an idea of which hairstyle you are looking for, you are highly encouraged to bring pictures of that hairstyle! Miss Glitzy printed out the 4 Asian wavy bob photos (refer to this blog entry)and Horii-san felt that the top right out-of-bed hair was most suitable. The whole wash, cut, perm and style process took only 1.5 hours!


Miss Glitzy also took the opportunity to find out more information on the wavy bob:

Q1: Which face shapes are suitable for such a hairstyle?

Wavy bob is most suitable for egg shaped and round shaped faces. Long faces with sharp chins are not suitable.

Q2. How can I style my permed bob?

When the hair is damp, you can use some wax to scrunch or twist the ends. This makes the hair more wavy. But if you would like your waves to be more natural, use some wax and scrunch or twist the ends on DRY hair instead.

Q3. How long does the perm last?

Depending on the type of perm that is applied to the hair but it should last an average of 2-3 months.

Q4. Which hair length is ideal for a wavy bob hairdo?

Since the hair will be shorter after a perm, shoulder length hair is ideal. Preferably, the hairstyle is not too layered.

Q5. How do I take care of my curls? What products do you recommend?

Use a light shampoo and conditioner for dry hair to replace the moisture after the perm. Try not to do other chemical treatments to a fresh perm (e.g. bleach, dye) for the first week after your perm. Use a hair wax and style to achieve more volume and styling. Komachi recommends the Urban Tribe Flexibility Shampoo ($22) and Conditioner($22), Urban Tribe Shapy($28) and Urban Tribe Muddy Matt($28).

Q6. Why should ladies come to Komachi for a perm or change in hairstyle?

Because the Komachi stylists know exactly what they are doing and perform their skills with a spirit of excellence. Bring them a photo and they will get you the look that you desire. Komachi stylists are constantly being updated on the latest hair trends and they will be sent twice a year to overseas for training.

The perm for Miss Glitzy’s bob would cost $200 while the hair cut is $100. First timer at Komachi gets 20% discount!

  1. Hi Miss Glitzy… the curls make a nice change. (and u looked cute with the curlers!)

    • Thanks Holly! I thought I looked like a crazy housewife!

  2. Your perm looks great! The price is a little steep but I guess it’s worth it! 🙂

  3. Miss Glitzy- your hair is awesome! I have a friend who gets her hair permed here. I think she does it at either a Japanese or Korean salon. It’s subtle!

    • Yes dreamsequins, the waves are big so it looks more natural. I suppose we can trust a Jap salon if we want natural waves.

  4. sweet, Miss Glitzy. what kind of perm is this? 🙂

    • Horii-san had no idea what kind of perm this is. You can refer it to the Glitzy perm. They will understand. hahaha.

      • that is “so clever!”. seriously. like having a street named after you!

  5. Tom Tuttle from Tacoma: Hahaha.. nah.. it’s just that different treatment is used for different hair/face so there is no fixed solution for everyone.. just bring a photo along to show the stylist if you are keen. 🙂

  6. hello..v tempted to perm my hair (slightly longer than urs). Is ur hair v dry now?

    • I apply hair moisturizer religiously every night so it isn’t that dry now. 🙂

  7. hi.. I’ve booked an appt to perm my hair with Horii-san on friday (which is tmrw), but am deciding whether to go with him or Tsuji-san. May I know how satisfied are you with your new hair-style? Do you think Horii-san’s perming skills are good? U can choose to email me at the given email address. Thanks! ^^

    • Hi Clare,
      I’m quite happy with my new hair-style. The waves are quite big and gentle, not tight which I was initially afraid of. Although I have not interacted with Tsuji-san before, I heard that she is also quite experienced!

      Alternatively you can let the staff at Komachi know what type of hairstyle you would like to do (bring a picture!) and they can recommend the hairstylist for you?
