6 Types of Permed Hairstyles
Today, I decided to talk about permed hairstyles. Given that this hairstyle is the latest trend and certainly a great way to change your old boring hair look, I assume that you certainly want to know more about it. It is a fact that permed hair adds a touch of drama, thus, you must opt for it only when you are certain that this is what you need.
It is recommended for people with straight, flat hair because it adds curl or waves, making your hair look bouncy and full of volume. Moreover, it is a classic way to style hair for both men and women.
Different Styles to Perming Hair:
Before you set your heart on permed hair, here are few tips that you should consider.
1. Perming your hair involves treating your hair chemically, thus you should first check if your hair healthy enough to perm. The best way to do this is by taking a test – Take a few strands of your hair and dip it in a glass of water. If your hair sinks, it means that your hair is damaged as it has absorbed the water. But, if your hair floats on water, then it is healthy and you can happily perm your hair.
2. The second most important question is to check if permed hair will look good on your face type or not – For this, pull back your hair and tie a ponytail. Stand near the mirror, determine the shape of your face, and imagine the permed look. Once you are satisfied that permed hair would look good on your face, go for it.

Types of hair perming:
1. Body perm:
This type of perm looks best on people with a square shaped face and shoulder length hair, as it adds a lot of volume, provides body and movement. It also adds a slight wave all through the hair and mainly it adds body to flat hair. Overall, it softens facial features, and is easy to style with a blow dryer.
2. Plain curl perm:
This is the most common type of perming that suits all face types. You can go for this plain curl perm by perming small sections of your hair. This style gives soft natural waves and adds buoyancy to hair.
3. Root perm:
This works well on people with heart shaped faces, here, it adds height and volume only to the root area. It gives the required lift and fullness to the crown and goes well with people who have short hair rather than medium or long hair.
4. Spiral perm:
The spiral curls give an impression of romantic curls, and in this process, the hair is curled by winding it on a special curler that creates a bit loose curls. This makes the hair look fuller and thicker, suiting mostly people with an oval shaped face.
5. Stacked perm:
This common type of perming generally suits all face types. However, it mostly looks good on people with straight haircut rather than a layered one because it gives a lot of height and volume. As far as the thickness of the curls is concerned, you can go for loose or tight curls depending on the thickness of the curling rod used in the process.
6. Acid perm:
If your hair is coloured or treated shoulder length hair, this type of perm is suitable for you. Besides this, all those who have a square face and hope to make it appear longer, they could opt for this type of perm. It creates a relaxed effect by producing looser curls. However, the effect does not last for more than 4 months.
Now that you are aware of the different perming options, I hope you find the right type of perm for yourself.
Till then take care. Keep it stylish.
