The new look in permanent waves at salons is NOTHING like the big,over-backcombed, poofy-banged damaging version from the 1980s (see below!). And then keep reading....because Debbie is even thinking about one of these new perms!
Yes--Perms Are Back....in a much more subdued and natural version. Many celebs are opting for them!
Beachy waves have been a huge hair trend for the last few years. And, for those who prefer not to be a slave to their curling iron, straightening iron and salt sprays on a daily basis to get that “I woke up like this” hair, there’s a new option available that borrows elements from the past.
Here are some pics during and after the perm....Whaddya think?
It’s a great look to get an air-dried finish and a great way to give straight hair a soft bend and movement without additional heat and styling time.
Very cool: there are also modern techniques where it can be straighter at the top half with the bend in the hair starting at the mid length and ends.
The other big change is using a larger rod to create a loose, soft bend in the hair. We’ve also seen a big shift away from the over styled curling iron waves to a more natural air-dry texture.”
The perm is even has a new name, with one branded service called the “American Wave.” Here’s a shot of how it looks in progress from the Silver Rose Tanning & Hair Salon:
And the result is super pretty!
