There’s no denying that 2020 was challenging to many of us, to say the least. That doesn’t mean things can’t be brighter and better though. We’re starting a new year, and it’s the perfect time to refresh your mindset — and everything in between. If you’re ready to recharge and start anew in 2021, here’s how, with the help of products and services you can find at Junction 8.
Refreshed tresses at Apgujeong Hair Salon
They say a woman who changes her hair is about to change her life. If you feel that this quote is for you for 2021, head to Apgujeong Hair Studio (02-18) to have a Korean perm that gives your hair more texture and volume. The soft and natural curls will be styled especially for you by the salon’s professional stylist based on your face shape and lifestyle.
Sport a new ‘do in the new year; a perm starts at SGD155.
Blissful skin at Regina Hair Removal Specialist
It’s the perfect time to de-stress not just your mind but also your skin. The Aroma Bliss Facial at Regina (02-17) is a 40-minute massage that’s perfect for ladies on the go who need some time for solitude and relaxation. Think of it as double relaxation — an aromatherapy session with a calming lavender scent while you’re getting a soothing facial.
Rejuvenate your skin with Regina’s Aroma Bliss Facial, at SGD38 (from the usual price of SGD138 per session) for those who are trying out the service for the first time.
Nail your 2021 plans with Nails in Vogue
You’re gonna need nice nails to accompany all the planning you’ll be doing for the year ahead. Get the Express Manicure Gel Polish with Angelic Nail Mask service at Nails in Vogue (01-28A). The treatment includes a Keratin Essence that’s great for strengthening the nails. It also has a Honey Oat Nail Mask that promotes healing for dry and damaged digits. To cap it off, the Green Tea and Avocado Vitamin Serum in the kit helps to improve the elasticity of the cuticle and moisture-retention in the nails.
Get that glow with LANEIGE
After pampering, enhance your glow with LANEIGE’s Neo Cushions in the Glow and Matte variants. Glow gives a lit-from-within radiant finish that lasts up to 24 hours, while Matte gives full coverage and a flawless finish that lasts against sweat and oil for up to 24 hours.
Snag these at LANEIGE (01-01 to 02) for SGD62 each.
Style up for success at IORA
Dress up for the life you want to live. Update and upgrade your wardrobe with pieces from IORA (01-25 to 26), which offers elevated basic wear that’s perfect for a modern woman’s lifestyle. There’s a classic piece injected with a seasonal trend — at an affordable price point — waiting for you to strut in this year.
Start styling and avail of their promos. Some pieces are available at one for SGD39 and two for SGD49. There are also deals for one for SGD19 and two for SGD29.
Elevate your fitness and social style at Royal Sporting House and iStudio
If you have “move more” as one of your resolutions for 2021, now’s the perfect time to prepare for it. Make sure you have the right gear. The Royal Sporting House (02-13 to 15) offers all of your fitness essentials.
Our picks? These Reebok Women’s Hiit Training Sneakers (SGD129) for excellent support as you go through your regime. Make sure you’re properly hydrated, too, with the Nike Big Mouth Graphic Water Bottle (SGD9.90).
Then, deepen the connections you have with friends and family next year while still continuing to practise safety measures. A call is always a good idea — but not when you’re not equipped for it. Make sure your battery’s always on point with the Mophie 15W Wireless Charging Pad. Take extra care of your phone while you’re at it too and level up with the Gear4 D30 Crystal Palace Case for the ultimate drop protection, as well as the InvisibleShield Glass Elite+ Screen Protector that not only protects from scratches but also — get this — bacteria.
You can get all these goodies as a bundle from iStudio (02-38) at SGD179 (from the original price of SGD237.90).
With the help of these, you’ll be armed and ready to face the new year refreshed and in style.
