Then we separated because it's hard to walk together at this shopping district.

It's always crowded here, because locals and tourists love to buy 
cosmetics and skin care products at Myeongdong Cosme Road (코스메로드).

Not only that, you can also find fashionable clothes, shoes, 
bags and others trendy stuffs here.

I went to Etude House first because my friend ask me to buy several skin care products. However, I didn't purchase anything because I don't know the items and all the sales girls were busy occupied with customers. I went to Myeongdong Tourist Information Center to check whether I can go to nearby hair salon for hair perming.

Cha Bum Jin, the hair stylist suggested Park Shin Hye's 
hairstyle after checking my hair texture.  

He guided me to the locker room near the entrance. One of the assistants helped me take off my jacket and put on the gown and store my bag and jacket inside it.

Soon, the shampoo girl brought me for hair wash.

And while sitting there I heard more than 20 times 'gamsahamnida'. I think all the staffs there have the habit to say it whenever customer walk passing them.

my hair, so it won't be to short after permed.

Hair treatment to prevent it from damaging. Then I was transferred to the 
long table with a plush black pillow for resting my hands.

They served me some refreshment of fruit juice, pretzel and cookies. For the drinks you can opt for coffee, tea or fruit juice.

He gave instruction to his assistant to roll my hair.

Then I was busy with my phone chatting and posting photos about our VIP Tour until I suddenly felt that some of the rollers burning my head!

Phew... it's better after they inserted sponge foams so 
the heat of those rollers not directly touching my head.

I notified the hair stylist on the other side of the table to help me to check on it. She quickly helped me to pull up the some of the rollers so they didn't touch my head. She then asked the assistance to use the dryer for airing my head and put the sponge foams. She and the assistance also apologies for it. I thanked her because she saved me from burning skin.

He gave me tips on how to apply hair cream and style it.

Finally after about 30 minutes, they helped me to removed those 'Medusa' cables from my head. Then after rinsed it, my hair stylist and his assistant quickly helped me to blow dry and style it.

~ Before and after ~

I paid KRW 225,000 (S$ 280.00) for design cut (디자인 커트) + setting perm (셋팅 헤어펌) + free hair treatment.  It's about the same price if I go to Korean hair salon in Singapore. Overall satisfied with the service, just that I didn't expect the incident. Supposedly  Juno is very famous hair salon in Korea, which have 72 branches in Seoul itself. There are 4 branches in Myeongdong district, and I saw their branches in Gangnam and Hongdae area too.
