So you’re thinking about getting a perm but you don’t know if it’s a good idea or not?
Let me tell you, this is one of the most frequent questions I get in the salon. “Do you think I should get a perm?”
Perms are a chemical process that permanently alter the affected areas. You can choose to perm your hair curly, wavy, or even get simply a root perm.
Of course perms are not always a good fit for everybody and will never be but it can be amazing for a select group of people. If you’re thinking about it here are 3 reasons why I think you should get a perm today.
1. You want to try something new. The only way to find out if you like something is to try it. Hair is something that helps us express who we are and gives the world clues about what person we want to be. Some people choose to get different cuts or color, but you want to get a perm and switch up the actual texture of your hair from straight to curly/wavy.
Perms are a great way to switch up your identity or try something completely new. Go ahead and see what it’s like on the other side.
2. You want texture. Straight hair is great, amazing even. Straight hair does have one major flaw though, sometimes it does not hold styles in as easy as hair with a bit of natural texture.
Texture in your hair will give you the ability to hold your beautiful beach waves, updos, and even simple braids.
You don’t have to get the curliest of perms either. A simple wave in your hair will add enough texture to help all of your styling needs.
3. You want volume. Yes old ladies have been getting perms forever and there’s only one reason, VOLUME! Having curly hair will increase the volume in your hair and give it a fuller appearance.
So what do you think?
Do you think that you might decide to get a perm anytime soon? Perms are a great way to switch up your hair, add texture and to add volume. Besides that curly hair is fun, as I always say curls have more fun.
