Like hair after Perm?
Perming techniques have changed over the years, and luckily for the better. In the 80s, perming was the leading cause of hair damage due to the harsh chemicals that were used at the time. But beauty no longer has to be a pain, because thanks to modern science you no longer have to sacrifice style to keep your hair healthy. You can technically, perm your hair at home, but I would recommend going to a professional to save yourself the trouble and dabble with all of these intimidating chemicals. So, before we jump into our ideas and inspiration for permed hair, let’s talk about what perm treatment actually includes:
- Your hair is washed thoroughly to remove dirt and allow the perming spot to easily enter your hair shaft. (Is it just me or everyone feels like a millionaire heiress when they get their hair washed in the salon? You me? Okay.)
- Now the disulfide bonds (which determine the texture of the hair) will have to be broken to make the hair more "flexible", so to speak. A perming lotion is applied to the hair. The perm lotion will differ depending on the type of perm you get – acids, alkalis or exothermic perm.
- Because the perming lotion works its magic to loosen the disulfide bridges in your hair, your hair is tightly wrapped around curling rods to redefine their structure and curl them.
- The time your hair is left in the curling irons depends on the thickness and nature of the hair.
- The curling bars are then removed from the hair and a neutralizing agent is applied to reunite the disulfide bridges in the hair into its new curly structure. The neutralizing time, again, depends on the thickness of the hair.
- The neutralizing agent is washed out of your hair and you are not applying heat, shampoos or other hair care products to your hair for the next few days.
OK, now that we’ve gotten all the boring stuff out of the way, let`s jump into our top picks for perm hair ideas and naturally curly women that could inspire you if your hair got permed!

As the title suggests, this type of perm looks very natural. The curls in this style are a result of the really tight curling rods used during the perming process.

I know, I know. What’s the point of getting a perm when you dry it with a diffuser, isn’t it? But listen to me. Diffuse your perm drying your curls will open up and create a nice definition in them. There’s also something about jet black curls that is incomparable to any other style.
7. Bushy Perm
Ok, I know, bushy hair in a world ruled by Eurocentric standards of beauty "bad" considered. But, look at the gorgeous head of hair on the girl!

Rihanna has done her fair share of experimentation when it comes to hair colors. But this burgundy shade is one of my personal favorites. The deep red shade was done in a short, spiral perm bob that looks fabulous while still staying on the more elegant side of things.
17. Short Wavy Perm
Contrary to popular belief, you don`t have to have medium or long hair to get a perm. A short bob may be enough if loose waves are all you need. The cuteness factor of this relaxed wavy look is still picked up by the adorably short bangs on the front.
18. Grungy Multi Textured Perm Bob
It’s amazing how versatile you can be with a perm. Take this short bob look, for example. Done up in curls of various sizes, this coarse perm is the epitome of chic dirt. To top it off with some super short bangs and the curls have their own heads, this look takes grunge styling to a whole new level.
19. Bleached Blonde Perm Bob
They say that blondes are more fun. When I look at that hair, I think it’s almost. (Nearly.)
The fine waves created by this perm and the blonde dye job look sun kissed as if you’ve just come back from a day about frolicking on the beach!
20. Big Body Perm
When it comes to creating large and provocative curls, a body is perm where it`s at. A body perm will give you large curls that are not as tightly wrapped as the curls given by a spiral perm. These big curls look beautiful, of course, and have a pep factor of their own.
21. Tousled Curls part of Perm
Some of us like to get all the natural look ourselves when we get our hairstyle. This Zul look is tailored for these types of people. Not only is this partially done only in the lower half of the hair, but it’s also done with wide curling rods to create big curls that have been tousled to make them look effortless and natural.
22. Olaplex Perm partial body
Olaplex has fundamentally revolutionized perm treatment by significantly reducing hair damage. This partial body perm, which was done on the lower half of her hair to create big curls, was done with the help of Olaplex. Way ended with some straight cut bangs that perm looks like something straight out of a Parisian career.
23. Wet Hot Perm Bob
Considering how `in` bob cuts are right now, it is not surprising that you have turned up the list again. Hot perms basically look like loose waves when wet and bend into more defined curls when dry. This short bob look was done in a hot perm and left wet to create a relaxed and shaggy wavy look.
24. Mixed digital and cold part Perm
Sometimes you just want to move around like a cutesy girl next door, don’t you? Well, getting that look can be a bit complicated, but the end result is definitely worth the effort.

25. Sultry cold perm
There’s something so sexy about a woman`s hair right after she steps out of the shower. You can capture the essence of this look with a cold spiral perm that gives you super defined and curly hair when your hair is wet and loose waves when it’s dry.
26. Multi Textured Perm Shaggy Bob
If you are planning on going for a dramatic hair transformation, here`s a cool idea for you. A short pimple bob is effortlessly cute itself, but it runs the risk of looking like a mess if not styled carefully. Getting a multi-textured perm can add some beautiful and natural looking curls to your bob and reduce the hassle of it every single time you step out of styling.
27. Luscious Body Perm
It’s all girls dream to have full-bodied curls that casually cascade their backs. And you could achieve that look with the help of a curling iron and waive one hour of your life each day.

28. Wild Olaplex Perm
We all want to live young and wild and free. And we all want to look at the way we convey that.

And to let your hair go completely out of control, cut into a short nub bob and let your curls do their thing.
29. SWOOPED Bangs Perm
Now here’s another take on the classic zul look. You don`t need to restrict long hair or bob cuts to a perm for sports. You could also go for a swooped pony that is short on the sides and long on the top. A perm can add tons of volume to your hair and great work to reduce the roundness of your face and emphasize your angles.
