Define your style.
Permanent waving, or more commonly known as "perms" are still around in fashion today. Contrary to the belief that perms are out of date and not done anymore in salons, I am seeing a resurgence in their popularity.
Because perms serve a great purpose in hair styling; they give hair structure and body where needed.
The technology of perming hair has improved in the last 20 years and can do for the hair that styling product can't replicate. We are also seeing different techniques for perming the hair in various ways now. We perm to give texture, body and styling support in a way that looks natural.
Perming might add lift and volumne to a flat crown, for example. Sometimes, clients do want to see some texture change: from flat and lifeless to curls! Also, you may think of perming as added styling support, for those West Coast wind and rainy days that don't help our hair.
So have a thought outside the box and consider a perm, for those styles that may require added texture and body.
