Sydneysiders, if you’ve ever fancied yourself with bouncy, curly locks, but were basically blessed with the total opposite, a perm may be just the solution.
We’ve all heard the horror stories of guys and gals leaving the hair salon resembling something of a poodle, ringlets and all. Remember that picture comparing Justin Timberlake’s bleach blonde perm to a packet of two-minute noodles? Don’t worry, we promise things have a come a long way since the days of N*Sync (No disrespect, JT).
Luckily for you, we here at Bookwell have rounded up some of the best perm professionals in Sydney, ready to give you the best hair day of your life.
There are essentially two different types of perm. The regular perm, and the digital perm. The regular perm, also known as the cold perm gives its wearer tight, uniform curls, which are enhanced when wet. This is why you see people applying lotions, potions and mousses to make their perm pop.
The digital perm is the more modern iteration of the treatment, using a combination of heat and chemicals, resulting in bigger, looser waves. With a digital perm you can achieve everything from big, afro curls to soft, textured waves. The style is more prominent when dry.
Remember to check in with your haircare professional to work out which type of perm is best for you.
Ultimately, the time your perm lasts will depend on how well you maintain your brand new ‘do. If you keep your hair in good condition, your perm can last up to 8 months.
There are several rules to follow after getting your perm that will help you maintain your new locks for as long as possible. E.g. don’t shampoo your hair for 48 hours after the perm treatment, use a shampoo designed for chemically treated hair, etc. You perm professional can provide you with everything you need to know.
