Hair attachment is a hair styling that attaches artificial hair to one’s hair with purpose to prolong the hair or to make it look cool. Located in Hongdae, ASKA HAIR is rapidly raising into the center stage of this stylish fashion trend as the words spread from mouth to mouth. CEO Kim Do-hyung and the specialists of ASKA HAIR boast unparalleled technique and experience in the field. Whether you have short or long hair, they have magic hands to turn your hair to the stylish hair you desire. Back in high school years, Kim was a backup dancer and learned a skill to make dreadlocks from foreign dancers. It was the moment of curiosity that led Kim to the current business. The attached hair normally lasts up to 8 months but 2 months at least. At ASKA HAIR, one specialist takes care of one customer and the attachment takes long hours to complete. This is because it can maximize the consistency of the hair other than the hair done by 2 to 3 persons in a relatively short time. The 12 hair attachment specialists at ASKA HAIR have more than 2 year experience and passed a number of training. Feeling the need of systematic training, Kim gathered top authorities in the field and launched the Korea Hair Attachment Association last April and Kim is serving as the first president. All hair attachments are carried out on reservation and the prices range from KRW 100,000 won for simple attachment to more than 200,000 from detailed attachment. According to Kim, short hair is the most difficult hair style to extend but ASAKA HAIR can do it without much difficulty. If you have scanty hair, Kim advises to have ‘cover hair extension’ as it covers the head without pressing the scalp; ASAKA HAIR boasts the top level of technique in cover hair extension. There are about 30 kinds of hair attachment methods from using rubber band or silicon to using metals or plastic rings and each method satisfies each different need. If you are interested in learning the skill rather than being done with your hair, ASAKA HAIR runs a number of courses from beginners to advance. Recently, Kim moved ASAKA HAIR Hongdae from the 2nd floor to 3rd floor with ungraded facilities and ambience for effective training while running branches in Gangnam, Ilsan and Incheon. <Power Korea> endeavors to “rewrite” Korean article into ‘plain English’.
