Perms Are Making a Comeback and Here's Why We're Loving This Voluminous Trend

Whoever thought the perm would make a comeback? Well, it has and there's a new way to achieve luscious curls without the permanent commitment...

The Perm Updated for 2017

The eighties were all about big hair and bold fashion statements, and it's no surprise that the perm is back with a bang this autumn, as we strut our stuff towards a new season. However, gone are the chemical laden wet-looks of previous years, as this curly do is experiencing a more natural comeback with healthier looking, long and loose curls and twist into smooth and silky kinks, instead of a big frizzy mess.


How to Perm Without Going Perm

The concept of the perm is to make it permanent, though if you would prefer to avoid such long term commitment and the use of chemicals in your hair, creating one-off curls can be just as effective as the real deal. It may take more time in the long run, but using a large-barreled curling iron to create your curls will have a similar effect.

You can also speak to your stylist about semi-permanent treatments, which last up to eight weeks, meaning you can style soft, sultry curls, which are full of volume and bounce, but without the long-term commitment.


How to Style Your Perm This Season

As we've already mentioned, perms are far more natural looking and loose this season, so considering wearing yours in long waves, instead of tight corkscrews. Looser curls have the added bonus of minimising frizz and are a perfect way to transition your beach babe hair from summer to autumn.

When it comes to colour, keep it natural with subtle highlights or a balayage in honey and caramel tones, as a perfectly delicious way to keep warm and welcome in the colder months!
