In conjunction with the Singapore Blog Awards organised by OMY.sg for the ‘Best Beauty Blog’ category, which I have been qualified as one of the Top 10 Finalists, all finalists had to head down to understand the Panasonic Beauty products better as well as to invite 2 female guests along.
I brought my sister and friend along too 🙂
We were introduced to a few products which we were taught how to them with hands-on experience where we had the chance to try out the products on our friends and vice versa!
The brand ‘Panasonic’ itself should not be an unfamiliar name to all and it has actually been founded since 1918! Panasonic Singapore is responsible for the sales and marketing of consumer electronics and home appliances in Singapore. With the array of beauty products they offer, wanting to consistently improve and develop their products better, Panasonic has come up with a new innovation for hair and beauty care using the nanoe™ technology.
You might have heard that using such hair tools may damage your hair as they dry them out but with this nanoe™ technology, it specifically targets this concern and problem.
This nanoe™ technology takes the moisture from your hair and uses it to create tiny, moisture-rich particles that are small enough to penetrate the shafts of your hair, helping to strengthen and protect it against damage from heat and brushing.
Using a picture to illustrate this nanoe™ technology would help you better understand how it works.
Hong Ling, a professional beauty make-up artist and beauty stylist carried out a mini demonstration session to show us a few useful tricks in styling our hair for different occasions and events.
Effortlessly and within a short period of time, experienced Hong Ling managed to show us what Panasonic EH-HS95-K Nanocare Straightener can do by illustrating on Michele’s hair!
I must admit that it isn’t easy to curl using a straightener but there are many reasons as to why many women prefer using straightener to curl their hair instead of curling iron.
Firstly, don’t let the term ‘straighteners’ fool you. Straighteners or also known as flat iron, have different stylising functions compared to a curling iron. On top of its straightening and curling functions, it can even make crimps and waves as welll, so you can style your hair at the comfort of your own cosy house for different occasions! That is why many women prefer getting straighteners over curling iron because it’s way definitely more value for money!
Secondly, straighteners give a more defined and long-lasting curls. Why? Because unlike the curling iron which has rounded barrels, straighteners are more angled. So as the segment of hair passes through the straightener, they are more bent resulting in a more defined curl which many women would like to achieve because nobody likes lifeless limping curls and weighs down your hair, failing to give it shape and volume.
Although it does take some time to master the art of curling hair using straightener, once you get the hang of it through practice, it is really easy to do and curling your hair within 10 minutes should not be a problem! As the saying goes, “There are no ugly women, only lazy one”, so practice, practice and more practice! 😀
Here are some snippets of us trying out the products and having fun at the same time as well!
You can see that I was very serious in trying to master the art of curling…..
And then Hong Ling came round to help out and I took the opportunity to bombard her with burning queries…
Just look at my serious face…@@
And I had my hair curled as well! 🙂
And that’s me trying to pin my hair to the side for a’ side-sweep look’ which gives a sweeter and more demure feel. 😉
And what is a beauty blogger without a selfie of herself? 😀
Hong Ling also introduced the Nanocare Ionity Hair Dryer EH-NA45 which works similarly to the straightener in which the nanoe penetrates the hair cuticles and delivers water to maintain the moisture balance inside hair.
On top of that, this Nanocare Ionity Hair Dryer EH-NA45 also contains platinum ions which help to coat the hair surface and tighten the cuticle. Working hand in hand, the double ions work to boost the hair’s moisture content, keeping the hair healthy and beautiful!
You will never have to worry about damaging your hair by blow drying them anymore!
After styling Michele’s hair using the straightener, Hong Ling tied and pinned her hair up into a bun and blew it upwards using the hair dryer. This helps to give the hair more volume, which is especially a useful tip for those who desires more volume at the crown. A bee-hive bun can look very sexy yet elegant at the same time and comes in handy when you are having a bad hair day.
Beauty tip: If you love this hairstyle yet afraid to try because of your broad face shape, remember, contouring your face is a must then. Also, make sure you perfect your make up if you were to wear this hair style, because by bunning up your hair, the focus would be on your face instead.
After Hong Ling was done styling Michele’s hair, she touched up her makeup and used the Panasonic Heated Eyelash Curler EH-SE60 which helps to brighten up the eyes!
I will be touching more on the Panasonic Heated Eyelash Curler EH-SE60 and the Panasonic Facial Ionic Steamer EH-SA31 in the upcoming blog post. On top of that, I will also be doing a video on a step-by-step tutorial in using the Panasonic EH-HS95-K Nanocare Straightener to create different hairstyles and looks!
So stay tuned! <3
