Master the Oppa-Down Perm: ProTrim Hair Salon’s Guide to the Ultimate Men’s Hairstyle Trend


In the bustling city of Singapore, ProTrim Hair Salon stands out for bringing Korean hair perfection right to your doorstep. The latest trend hitting our shores is the Oppa-Down Perm, a style that’s capturing the hearts of men in their 20s and 30s, inspired by their favorite K-drama actors. Crafted expertly by our very own Joel Park and Nari Park, this style isn’t just about looking good; it’s about embracing a silhouette that enhances your natural bone structure and brings out your best features. Let’s dive into what makes the Oppa-Down Perm the must-have style of the year.

What is the Oppa-Down Perm?

Originating from the trendsetting streets of Korea, the Oppa-Down Perm is tailored specifically for men looking to tame their mane while adding a touch of class and style. This technique reduces volume and root lift, providing a sleek, manageable look that complements the natural shape of your head. Unlike traditional perms that focus on curls, the Oppa-Down Perm is all about creating a smooth, natural flow, eliminating the common issue of hair “floating” away from the scalp.

Why Opt for an Oppa-Down Perm at ProTrim?

Nari Park, our salon’s new acclaimed stylist, has brought the magic of Cheongdam-dong’s famous Oppa-Down Perm to Singapore. Here at ProTrim, we understand the importance of a hairstyle that not only looks great but also feels right. The Oppa-Down Perm offers:

  • A natural, two-block look that seamlessly transitions from the sides to the top.
  • A solution for the stubborn hairline lift, giving you a well-rounded, fresh appearance.
  • A style that works with your daily routine, reducing the need for constant restyling.

Navigating the Pros and Cons

While the Oppa-Down Perm provides a stunning, manageable hairstyle, it’s essential to consider:

  • Pros: Keeps hair from floating, maintains a natural connection in styles, and enhances the classic men’s hair mash look.
  • Cons: Depending on hair volume, it may limit fluffiness; it requires understanding that it’s more about hair texture improvement than design change.

Maintaining Your Oppa-Down Perm

Longevity varies based on hair type and maintenance routines; typically, the style holds its charm for about a month before natural hair growth starts altering the look. To keep your Oppa-Down Perm in prime condition, ProTrim recommends:

  • Regular treatments and the use of quality hair care products.
  • Scheduled touch-ups and consultations to adapt the style as your hair grows.

Embracing the Look: Recommended Styles and Styling Tips

At ProTrim, we recommend the bundled two-tone short haircut for those wanting to embody freshness and control. This style combats hairline lift while maintaining volume where it counts. Post-perm, your hair achieves a natural silhouette, requiring minimal effort for a dynamic, sophisticated look. Remember, a touch of hair wax and proper drying techniques can elevate your style, keeping you photo-ready at all times.


The Oppa-Down Perm is more than just a hairstyle; it’s a statement of sophistication and ease, inspired by the heart of Korean fashion and tailored to fit the modern man. At ProTrim Hair Salon, under the expert hands of Joel Park and Nari Park, this transformation is not just envisioned but brought to life. Ready to step into your new look with confidence? Book your appointment today and join the ranks of men who’ve not just changed their hairstyle, but their lifestyle.


Q. How often should I get an Oppa-Down Perm?

Typically, an Oppa-Down Perm can last around a month before natural hair growth affects the overall look. However, this can vary based on individual hair types and growth rates. We recommend scheduling a consultation every 4 to 6 weeks at ProTrim Hair Salon to assess your hair’s condition and decide whether it’s time for a touch-up or a new perm. Regular visits will ensure your hairstyle remains fresh and in line with your aesthetic preferences.

Q. Can the Oppa-Down Perm be customized for different hair types?

Absolutely! One of the greatest strengths of ProTrim Hair Salon, particularly with stylists like Joel Park and Nari Park, is our ability to tailor the Oppa-Down Perm to various hair types and textures. Whether your hair is thick, thin, curly, or straight, we can adjust the perm technique to ensure the best results that complement your natural hair while achieving the desired down perm effect.

Q. What should I do if my hair starts to regain volume after the perm?

If you notice your hair regaining volume or the roots starting to lift, it might be time for a touch-up. However, there are ways to manage this at home between salon visits. Using the right styling products, such as mousse or wax, can help weigh down the hair slightly and maintain the sleek look. Additionally, using a blow dryer with a diffuser attachment can help you control volume and keep your style in place. For personalized advice, don’t hesitate to reach out to your stylist at ProTrim for tips tailored to your specific hair type and perm.
