#13: The Beach Wave Perm

This hairstyle expresses her natural curls and a feminine feeling different from the usual unnatural curls. The part I see most feminine after doing digital perm is the part I’m most satisfied with. Women who can’t care for their hair or have to go out busy in the morning need to learn how and be good at styling their hair. Hair with bleached color should be avoided. Healthy hair is the best condition for a perm.

#14: The Spiral Perm

I love that a spiral perm can add so much texture and volume to naturally straight hair or enhance natural wavy or curly hair. It’s big, fun, and definitely attracts attention! Getting a spiral perm can take several hours in the salon – the more hair you have, the longer it will take, the more it will cost. It’s better to have a haircut with layers, so you don’t end up with a triangle, so I like to cut before and after the perm.

#15: Multi-Textured

This is a look I achieved by wrapping your hair a certain way when perming this client’s hair. My favorite thing about it was how natural and effortless it came out. Doesn’t it make you want to perm your hair? Your hair must be dense, meaning that you should have a good amount of hair. Fine hair can be permed, but it won’t be as full and bouncy as this client here in the picture.
