Celebrate Curls: Trends in Modern Perms

August 12, 2018

We’ve been closely watching this year’s hairstyle trends, and curly hair is definitely in style. If you have natural curls and have been fighting the straight iron every morning, this is great news! If you have naturally straight hair and would like to join in the fun, a professional perm may be just the ticket for you.

For many, perms seem like a blast from the past that left hair frizzy and big – think 80’s and 90’s big hair styles. Today’s perms are a lot different, and improvements have been made to the process to give you smooth, stylish curls without the frizz.

The big news is improved technology, and it has made a huge difference. Stylists have better solutions and conditioning products at their disposal to keep hair soft and healthy while adding only the curls you want. Tight, knotty curls and big hair frizz are a thing of the past.

Today’s perms are customized, with more options for stylists to choose, including solution strengths and perming time, depending on the desired final product. Hair can be permed into gentle beach waves or soft, smaller curls. Curl size is determined by the size of rod used in the process. You can even have curls only on the ends. The emphasis is on curl and conditioning for a soft, natural look.

Conditioning is the magic word, and it is part of the process from start to finish. Modern perms have a strong emphasis on hair repair and conditioning, so the result is soft and healthy looking.

If you’re thinking about getting a perm, have a consultation with your stylist first. Bring pictures of the style you are considering. Ask about pre-perm conditioning treatments, which will vary according to your hair’s current condition. You’ll want your hair to be in the best possible condition before getting your perm. Finally, ask about hair care after your perm, including how long before washing, which products to use, and how often to use them.
