Today’s Perms – Get Soft, Defined Curl Without the Frizz

This year’s styles call for curly girl hair – big waves, well-defined tight curls, classic twists – they’re all in demand for summer 2019. If you have naturally straight hair and want to join in the fun, today’s perms are the perfect way to get a gorgeous new style, and at the Salon & Spa at Greenbriar, our stylists are well trained in the latest in perm technology.

When many of us talk about perms, we usually think of those frizzy styles of the 80’s and 90’s, with tight, kinky curls teased up as high as they can go with dry, damaged-looking frizz. Happily, those are a thing of the past. Today’s perms are all about conditioning, with new products that protect your hair’s health while giving you soft, defined curls without the frizz.

You can still choose any size curl you want, but you may find that modern techniques are different. In some cases, we still use rods, but for special types of curl, you may find your stylist using rollers, fabric, or another medium to get just the right look. New techniques help stylists give you more defined beach waves or even spiral-shaped coils.

When done by a professional, modern perms are designed to minimize or completely avoid damage to your hair. In the past, we used to worry about over-processing, but in most cases, today’s stylists can give you a perm that leaves your hair in great condition. And specialized shampoos and conditioners from professional salons help you keep that healthy looking, smooth curls for your perm that make today’s curly girl styles so spectacular.

Allow some time for your perm – process times vary by the length and thickness of your hair, so ask your stylist and plan your appointment when you don’t have an important meeting on your schedule. Today’s perms can last up to eight months, depending on the length of your hair and how often you cut it. Perms in shorter hair with frequent trims usually last about three or four months.

Aftercare is easy when you get a perm. Condition often using products your stylist recommends and avoid heat when possible. Air dry or use a diffuser if you’re in a hurry. If you must use heated styling tools, use a heat protectant or keep the setting on low.
