What Is A Modern Perm?

When you think of the word ‘perm’ we wouldn’t be surprised if images of Deirdre Barlow started floating around in your mind, but we’re here to tell you that this iconic 80s trend has evolved and deserves to be taken seriously. A number of styles from this era, such as the mullet and the mixie cut are coming back, but not as we remember them and the perm is no exception. Long gone are the tight Kylie Minogue curls, the modern perm focuses more on volume and tousled waves.


Effortless Volume


The basics of a perm remain the same – it’s a type of permanent chemical hair treatment that is used to volumise the hair. The modern perm differs from the classic version in that this volume is designed to fade at a quicker rate, lasting up to around 6 weeks as opposed to the traditional 6 months. This not only makes it less expensive but also more versatile, with effortless and adaptable bouncy waves instead of rigid corkscrew curls. This type of hairstyle is suitable for a range of hair types and cuts for both men and women and could be just the thing you’ve been waiting for.

If you’re wondering exactly how it works, the process is still more or less the same. Our specially trained stylists will thoughtfully wrap your hair in rods before setting your new curls with a lotion that breaks and resets hair bonds. This is then rinsed and neautralised at a precise time to stop the process and achieve the desired look. What sets the modern perm apart is how we then cut and style the hair after your treatment. We know how to create a fresh and relevant perm at Christopher Maerevoet.

If you regularly wrestle with a curling iron to try and get beachy waves, a modern perm could save you time and unnecessary stress this summer.

There are ways around everything and our stylists love a challenge!
