Our model Nicole has been living in Japan for a number of years now, and as a result, she has struggled to find stylists that could handle cutting her hair or products that accentuated her natural curls. After learning about the curly hair specialists at Nepenji, however, it’s doubtful that she’ll ever struggle again. Besides getting a cut to shape up her curls, the stylists also recommended some highlights and lowlights to add a three-dimensional effect.
Specialized Cutting Technique for Curly Hair
Even in countries where many people have curly hair, it can be hard to find a specialist. And yet, here we find a fluent English-speaking, Devachan-experienced salon in Tokyo! The staff has also been trained to cut and style curly hair, leaving the hair dry and cutting each individual curl from the bottom up. Doing this means that the hair is being cut at its most natural state, making the curls look more defined than if they were wet and brushed out first. It takes a little more time, but each curl gets the care it deserves.
What Does 3D Color Look Like on Curly Hair?
Just like with the cutting technique, the dyeing technique for curly hair leaves the hair dry and applies color to individual curls. Because Nicole’s hair is thin, the stylists used paper instead of foil on the applied color. This ensures that her hair isn’t damaged by the process. The highlights and lowlights are carefully applied in order to create a more defined look.
Styling Can Make or Break Your Curls
After using DevaCurl’s line of non or low-lathering cleansers that clean and condition without stripping the hair of much-needed natural oils and conditioning with a relaxing head and shoulder massage, Nicole was ready to be expertly styled. Applying some DevaCurl styling products, the stylists used pins to lift roots of the hair away from the scalp, creating volume. They then used a diffuser to carefully dry her curls without breaking them apart while also using a humidifier to help the curls keep their shape.
Each curl is beautifully defined while the highlights and lowlights work together to add definition. Nicole was ecstatic to see her curls looking this good, especially after struggling in a land of curly hair for so long.
What About Straight Hair?
Our next model Nailah has thick, straight hair and wanted a fun and beautiful haircut and new color. She hoped to get her hair dyed to her desired color without damaging her hair further. Not a problem for Nepenji!
Double Process Color to Get the Color You Want
After receiving an expert layered cut that avoided thinning out or damaging her hair, Nailah was ready for her double process color. Asian hair tends to have a difficult reddish tone when bleached, making it harder to reach a desired color. The stylist was able to handle this and then design a dye that matched Nailah’s wishes.
Who is This Package for?
This package is recommended for those with curly hair that would like to try an extremely specialized cut and style. It is also recommended for those that would like to receive an expert cut and color, available for any hair type or texture. Let the experts at Nepenji take your hair to the next level!
