Get Your Dream K-Drama Heroine Hair At One Of These 12 Digital Perm Salons

Effortless, natural-looking curls

This article was first published on 20 October 2022.

Voluminous curly hair has started to gain more popularity than sleek straight hair after K-drama heroines started wearing this look. And yes, this ‘do is easy to achieve using a curling iron or heatless rollers, but these methods are more time-consuming and don’t hold the curls long. The solution to waking up with effortlessly curly locks? Getting a perm — a digital perm, to be exact.

Digital perm versus traditional perming

When we think of traditional perming, our minds immediately go to heavily coiled locks that spiral from roots to tips, which isn’t exactly what a drama protagonist curl looks like. TV curls lean more towards waves than actual spring-like twirls, which is what digital perming is all about.

This hair-curling practice is said to have originated in Japan and has since grown in popularity in different parts of the world given its softer appearance. And as with any trend, the soft waves from digital perming also became a popular look in TV shows including K-dramas.

As for the process, digital perm works very similar to traditional perming with the use of heat, curling rods, and chemicals to condition the hair into its new shape. However, digital perm is relatively quicker, since the time for the chemicals to ‘cook’ the hair is shorter for looser, more natural-looking results.
