Beauty artists play an important part in satisfying their demand.
The beauty salon of the Ryugyong Health Complex on the picturesque Taedong riverside is one of the favourite haunts of women, who go there to have beauty treatments.
According to Ri Jong Hyok, head of its service department, many women come to the salon not only from nearby areas but also from afar.
One of the reasons is that beauty artists here have special techniques for enhancing beauty of women by selecting hairstyles well to suit their facial forms.
Beauty artist Ri Hye Jong is very familiar to customers for her special skill. Her colleagues say she shows a real knack of choosing modest and decent hairstyles that meet the aesthetic tastes of Korean women to enhance beauty.
“I’ve never known that this kind of long hairstyle would be well becoming to me,” said a middle-aged woman from the Ministry of Light Industry after receiving beauty treatments from Ri. The wavy long hairstyle really went well with her somewhat long face, demonstrating her intelligence.
Her colleague Kim Un A is very popular with university girl students as she is very good at short hairstyle which gives a neat and fresh feeling to them.
Beauty artists of the salon have also developed new beauty treatment methods, winning favour with customers.
Kim Jong Ae, another beauty artist, presented a study paper systematizing a nourishing perming method to a national presentation of experience and contest in the beauty culture sector. It was highly appreciated at it, attracting the attention of both researchers and service providers in the sector as it provided a guarantee for improving the quality of service while preventing the damage to hair and making hairstyling science-based while preserving its natural beauty.
Besides, she developed unique hairstyles like bead-form and decorative hairstyles that suit middle-aged women by improving her techniques for hairdressing, nourishing fomentation, perming and others.
Beauty artists of the salon also unsparingly transfer beauty treatment techniques and skills they have developed and improved through practice. Last year, they visited public service amenities in the City of Samjiyon in the northern highlands and other areas for passing their techniques on to them.
