Get that Curly Girl Style with Today’s Perms
Curls are all the rage in today’s hairstyles, and for many of the looks, it’s difficult – if not impossible – to achieve that style with a curling iron. For those of us who weren’t born with natural curl, technology has the answer – the perm. If the word perm makes you think of those big hair, frizzy styles of the 80’s and 90’s, don’t worry! Today’s perm technology has advanced, with a focus on soft, manageable curls.
Most curly girl styles today call for that air-dried look – something you just can’t achieve with a curling iron, because you need to blow dry first, then the heat of both styling products tends to bring out the frizz. With a perm, the curls are locked in, and you can just let them air dry with a little scrunching and shaking to activate the curl.
Perm technology has changed, with a huge emphasis on moisturizing, to keep hair looking healthy, soft, and frizz-free. Good hydration means that each strand of hair is sealed against damage that can cause frizz and split ends.
Today’s perms are gentler, but they are also customizable. Smaller rods make tighter curls, and larger ones make gentle beach waves. Placement is also important, which affects the style and direction of the curl. You can even get a perm that keeps things straight on top and curly on the bottom for your own unique style.
You can expect your perm appointment to take about two hours, with more time needed for thicker or longer hair. The results can last up to six months.
You can get the most out of your perm with Ouidad curly hair cuts, styling, and products, available here at the Full Spectrum Hair Salon. Ouidad is a specialized way of treating curly hair to get the most out of cuts. It also offers ultra-hydrating solutions to keep curly hair soft and frizz-free.
The first step in any perm is a consultation with your stylist to talk about what you want. Bring photos of the style you’d like, and if you’re new to the Full Spectrum Hair Salon, be sure to tell your stylist about any recent coloring or other processing you’ve had done to your hair.
