How do perms work ?

Traditionally perms use chemicals to break down the bonds inside the hair.  It is then wrapped around curling rods while perming lotion is applied.  After this it will be rinsed and a neutraliser will be used to set the curls.
Modern perming techniques involve using far gentler products on the hair and new winding techniques to create softer looks.   At Wildabouthair Salon the advanced formula's we use are enriched with KBF (keratin building factor) that helps restore hair prior to perming and which penetrate into the core of the hair, maintaining hydration and delivering beautiful curls that are incredibly soft to touch and beautifully conditioned.

What Kinds of Curly Hairstyles Can You Create with a Perm?

By using different winding techniques we can create a wide variety of different styles.   With modern perms our aim is to create a more natural look, so we tend not to use the tiny perm rollers seen in traditional perming, using much larger rollers instead, which allow us to create bigger curls and waves.

You might want curls throughout your hair, a lift at the roots, a wave towards the ends, or body at the sides of your hair.  Whatever curly hairstyle you desire, book a consultation and your Wildabouthair stylist will be happy to discuss the options and the results that can be achieved with your hair.

How Long Does the Perming Process Take?

This will depend on the length of your hair, but we recommend you allow up to 2 hours.  We will always start your appointment with a consultation to ensure we understand the look you would like to achieve and can place the curling rods and wind your hair accordingly.

How Long Does a Perm Last?

This will depend on the nature of the look we’ve created as well as the texture of your own hair, but perms can last up to six months.
