Are Permanent Curls Right For You? (2)

Previous Page
 
Permed hair Lastly, there is the spiral perm. It may be last on this list, but certain not the least! Spiral perms are romantic. They are fun. They are almost always beautiful! Spiral perms are the result of having the hair rolled vertically rather than horizontally. The curls can be done large and loose or smaller and tighter, but always rolled sideways towards the back of the head. Spiral perms are usually seen on longer hair, but look around, you will see very short hair styles that are rolled in this fashion - and they are cute!
 
      Just a few more things to consider before you decide if permanent curls are right for you. First, no matter what people say, perms do not usually result in a wash and wear style. They can, but ask for some training on how to style your hair after the perm. Also, make sure to really discuss with your stylist the cut before the perm, what type of roll he or she is going to use and what you can really expect it to look like. The layered look that flips out on the sides is very popular right now, but be careful, it is not very conducive to perming. You will likely end up with a lot of volume on the sides and top.
 
Check your face shape to see if this will work for you. Longer face shapes tend to need more volume on the side but very little on top. Rounder shapes lend themselves to most hairstyles and can tolerate volume on top, bottom or all around. You may want to brush up on styles suited to your face shape. And remember, don't be afraid to just have fun! Going for a perm may be scary, but what's the worst that can happen? If you hate it, just go back have them wash it out.
