Not Your Mother’s Perm: Enjoy the Modern Perm

If you’re like most people the word perm brings to mind visions of frizzy, tightly curled styles of the 80s and 90s. Long gone are the days of damaging, unsightly permanent waves, however. Continue reading to discover how a modern perm can upgrade your summer style!

Modern Style

The goal look of today’s perms aren’t to get big, tightly wound curls. Modern permanent waves can give you beachy, effortless waves to look fabulous every day! Our perm techniques can even keep hair straighter toward the root while giving straight locks bend and movement toward the ends without having to continuously apply heat, which can cause a lot of damage to strands.

Modern Technique

Modern perming techniques can help create a personalized curl style that is perfect for you! Your stylist will be able to recommend the right size perming rods to achieve the best curl for your hair length and texture. Unlike perms of the 80s and 90s, our stylists know that perms can be difficult to achieve in certain types of hair such as heavily highlighted hair. Receiving a consultation from one of our professional stylists is important to make sure your hair remains healthy and you get the look you hope to achieve!

Modern is Safer

Today’s permanent waving processes are less damaging than those used decades ago. Whether you opt for a traditional perm containing thioglycolic acid or a “thio-free” option, your stylist will be able to give you gorgeous waves without causing as much damage to your locks! Like most hair processes, however, there is still a risk of damaging your hair as perms do break keratin bonds in the hair and reform them to give hair its new wavy shape.
