When I think of Panasonic, I think of camera, sound systems, TV but I don’t naturally immediately think of beauty. However, when I am forced to think of technology that has helped us to attain beauty of my own homes, surprisingly, only a few brand names came to mind and Panasonic was one of them.
Last month I attended a Pansonic event together with some awesome beauty and lifestyle bloggers to learn more about the Beauty of Empowerment and how to better use Panasonic beauty products. The session was focused more towards hair care and styling.
Since most of us came to the workshop with clean hair, the main tool used is the Panasonic Multi Styling Tool EH-HW58. Used on it’s own, it’s basically a hair straightener but coupled with the attachments and a few trick, there are a million possibilities of different types of curls you can derive from this one tool!
The hair experts from Shiseido and Panasonic were there to give us tips on on how we can use the tool but we were basically left on our own to create our own hair transformation because Panasonic believes in the beauty of empowerment and that theses tools should aid their customers in able to produce salon worthy results with out any other help!
Here’s what was being taught to me:
To create curls using the multi straightener, take a portion of the hair to begin. Wrap the hair around the iron plate, ensuring that the majority of the hair stays in the centre of the iron plate and the hair straightener is tilted at 10 degrees towards the back of your head. Once hair is wrapped around the iron plate, gently slide the hair straightener downwards, without clamping onto the hair too tightly. For better results, add a small amount of serum to your hair prior to straightening or finish the look with hair spray to set the look. For a more natural wave, glide your fingers through your hair to gently loosen the curls.
I had so much fun trying out the multi-styler and watching all the girls there transform their hair so gorgeously! I was the only one there with short hair, but even then, I managed to use the styler to coax out more volume and waves from my flat hair.
Here’s my end result, I braided part of my hair and curled the rest cause I’m crazy into braid and plats these days 🙂
I had such a fun time with the girls after with super yummy refreshments and a generous gift bag from Panasonic. I can’t wait to try out and review their other products which will be coming up on my blog.

Outfit of the day
I’ve been going a lot more casual recently and in these outfit I’ve incorporated a couple of my current favourties!
I love my Korean top which looks like a simple denim shirt in the front and cuts a sexy unexpected lace back. It has small shoulder pads which reminds me of the 80’s but somehow manages to work well with this top.
Next favourtie is my Alexander Wang suede rockie duffle bag. It looks totally like denim but it’s made of the softest most silky leather and has awesome cool studs at the base. I’ve been doing short shuttles out of Singapore and this is my go-to travel bag of the moment. Throw on a top, jeans, a cardi,shades and this sling bag and I’m immediately flight ready.
Last of my favourites in this outfit is my neon bright Christian Louboutin heels. Yes, I know that the neon trend is about dying out already but I have always walked the trends at my own pace and I’m not relinquishing these yet. Unfortunately, these are also one of my most uncomfortable shoes in my shoe wardrobe and I usually prepare foldable flats whenever I wear them out.
Other items on my include:
Cuff: Tory Burch
Of course I also have Panasonic beauty tools to thank for my voluminous hair that day.
