Perm for a Man

Q: Can a man perm his hair and if so how long should it be?
 
A: Of course a man can perm his hair. Many decades ago, perms and color services were considered almost exclusively women’s services. But the lengthening hairstyles in the late sixties and seventies as well as the fascination with the “curly fro” look, led many men to have their hair permed to create the style they wanted.
 
      As to the question of how long the hair should be, the answer depends on the size of the curls desired (and therefore the size of the tools to be used). In order to create a “curl”, the hair needs to be long enough to wrap around the tool at least one to one-and-one-half times. The longer the hair is (to a point at least) the easier it is to wrap, but the smallest tools can be wrapped on hair as short and one-and-one-half inches long. The largest tools, not counting specialty tools, require lengths of at least 5-6 inches.
