Transform Your Look: Embrace the Curl Revolution

May 31 2024

Curly hair has made a significant comeback, and perms are no longer just a relic of the past. Modern perm techniques, including spiral perms, can give you stunning, voluminous curls that are both stylish and versatile. Whether you're looking for tight, defined curls or loose, beachy waves, there's a perm style for everyone. Master’s Salon offers the latest perm styles, and our stylists will give you tips on caring for your new curls, and highlight some fabulous hairstyles that look great with curly hair. Plus, we'll recommend professional products to help you maintain your beautiful new look.

Popular Perm Styles for a Whole New Look

Spiral Perm

Spiral perms create tight, corkscrew-like curls that add incredible volume and texture to your hair. This style is achieved by wrapping the hair around long, thin rods, resulting in defined, bouncy curls. Spiral perms are perfect for those looking to make a bold statement with their hair.

Beach Wave Perm

For a more relaxed, tousled look, the beach wave perm is ideal. This style gives you soft, loose waves that mimic the natural texture of beachy hair. It's perfect for a carefree, summery vibe and works well on various hair lengths.

Body Wave Perm

The body wave perm creates large, loose waves that add subtle volume and movement to your hair. This style is great for those who want a natural, effortless look with added fullness. It's a versatile option that can be dressed up or down for any occasion.

Digital Perm

A digital perm uses heat to create soft, natural-looking curls. This technique allows for more control over the curl pattern and can produce a variety of looks, from loose waves to tighter curls. The result is a smooth, shiny finish that looks and feels incredibly natural.

Root Perm

A root perm focuses on adding volume and lift at the roots, making it perfect for those with fine or flat hair. This style gives you a boost of volume without altering the texture of the rest of your hair, resulting in a fuller, more voluminous look.

How to Care for Your New Curls

Caring for permed hair requires a bit of extra attention to keep your curls looking their best. Here are some tips to help you maintain your new style:

Use Sulfate-Free Shampoo and Conditioner

Sulfates can strip your hair of natural oils, leading to dryness and frizz. Opt for sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners specifically designed for curly or permed hair to keep your curls hydrated and healthy.

Deep Condition Regularly

Permed hair can be more prone to dryness, so it's essential to deep condition your hair regularly. Use a hydrating hair mask or deep conditioner once a week to nourish and strengthen your curls.

Avoid Heat Styling

Excessive heat styling can damage your permed hair and cause your curls to lose their shape. Embrace air-drying whenever possible and use a diffuser attachment if you need to blow-dry your hair. When using heat styling tools, always apply a heat protectant spray to minimize damage.

Use a Wide-Tooth Comb

A wide-tooth comb is gentle on your curls and helps prevent breakage and frizz. Use it to detangle your hair when it's wet, starting from the ends and working your way up to the roots.

Sleep on a Silk Pillowcase

Silk pillowcases reduce friction, helping to keep your curls intact and frizz-free. They also prevent hair breakage and keep your hair hydrated by retaining moisture.

Hairstyles That Look Great with Curly Hair

Curly Updo

A curly updo is perfect for special occasions or when you want a more polished look. Gather your curls into a loose bun or a chic chignon, leaving a few tendrils loose to frame your face.

Half-Up, Half-Down

This versatile style is great for showcasing your curls while keeping some hair out of your face. Pull the top half of your hair back and secure it with a clip or hair tie, leaving the rest of your curls cascading down.

Curly Ponytail

A curly ponytail is an easy and stylish option for any day. Gather your curls into a high or low ponytail, and wrap a small section of hair around the hair tie for a polished finish.

Curly Bangs

If you're looking to change up your look, consider adding curly bangs. They add a fun, playful element to your hairstyle and can be styled in various ways to suit your face shape.
