My Reading Room

Have you ever wondered how models and celebrities get their soft , glamorous and eff ortless-looking curls, with nary a strand out of place? Wonder no more. Jean Yip, the beauty brand behind innovative hair treatments like Fancy Colour 2-in-1 and 6 Elements Botanicals Hair Spa Th erapy, lets you in on a secret: Its latest off ering, the BB Wave, can give you a hairstyle like those of the stars.

Perks of the perm

BB Wave stands for “Big, Bouncy Waves”. Perfect for mid-length to long hair, it’s a perming service that creates temporary curls. Th e perm may only last four to six months, but that means you can enjoy the hairstyle in the shortterm and see if it suits you, then either go back to your previous ’do or have a new perm if you choose.

Jean Yip also calls the style “festive curls”, as it’s an easy makeover you can give your hair in time for that special party-season occasion. What’s more, the treatment is customisable – you can ask your Jean Yip hairdresser to mimic your favourite K-pop star’s curls, or tailor a style that’s fl attering to your face shape and features.

Free from frizz

Because of its even heat distribution and reportedly lower chemical content, the BB Wave is said to be gentle on hair while helping to prevent moisture loss, and might reduce frizz.

Instead of severe, dry and crimped locks, the BB Wave promises naturallooking waves that are noticeably full of lustre. To keep your style looking great for as long as possible, just ask your Jean Yip hairdresser for tips on how to maintain your curls.
