New curls, who this?
In a time when natural hair textures are not only acceptable but are actually being celebrated, it can be easy for us non-curly haired girls to start having some hair texture envy. There are plenty of bold and beautiful curly hairstyles to inspire, and only so much time left to spare in your morning routine. Another 20 minutes to spend battling with a curling iron? No, thank you. Enter: the curly perm. The curly perm is an easy and efficient way to add texture and curls to your strands.
If you’re thinking about giving a perm a try then you’ll want to check out 21 kinds of curls to consider for your first perm:
20 Curls to Consider for Your First Curly Perm
1. White Blonde Bob
Wear your fresh perm short in an ashy white blonde bob for a sleek and on-trend look we can’t get enough of.
2. Vivid Red
Draw some attention to your curls with a bright and bold vivid shade of red hair color.
3. Keep it Loose
Ask your stylist for a very loose wave perm. This is a low commitment way to try out some texture without going all in right away.
4. Tiny Curls
Consider a perm with teeny tiny curls. This unique style is soft and low-key while still giving you that added texture.
5. Pop of Red
This bold pop of red velvet hair color will draw attention to your curls in the best way. Keep your color vibrant for as long as possible by using Suave Professionals Color Protection Shampoo and Suave Professionals Color Protection Conditioner.
6. Oversized Curls
When most people picture perms they picture a head full of tight curls but there are other options too! Try these oversized curls for a slightly softer look.
7. Voluminous Curls
Speaking of which, you can also consider a super voluminous look by opting for high-volume curls.
8. Ombré Perm
Get in on two trends at the same time by opting for a long perm broken up by a beautiful and slow ombré.
9. Fake Natural Curls
It’s easier to fake natural curls than you might think. Faking a natural curl pattern is all about the right sized curls and making sure that some curls move in one direction while others move in the other.
10. Spiral Curls
Guarantee a good hair day every day by opting for the perfect spiral curl.
11. Wear Them Loose
Loose curls get a beachy upgrade when you leave the curls straight at the very bottom.
12. Long, Loose Curls
Perms work for hair of almost any length and can add some major volume to the top of a long style that might otherwise get weighed down.
13. Textured Perm
Incorporate some texture into your curly perm by going for a frizzier style. These small curls look very natural when worn frizzy like this.
14. Brushed-Through Curls
Use a comb or a hairbrush to brush through your curls for an Old Hollywood wave effect.
Go for high shine S-curls by running TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shine Serum through your perm.
16. Undefined Waves
Wear your curly perm short and loose in this chic undefined bob.
17. The Beach Wave
Get a beach wave perm for sea salt dipped hair all year round.
18. Built-In Volume
Volume is definitely a major key characteristic for any perm and this style is no different. It capitalizes on a unique horizontal volume for a particular kind of lift.
19. Caramel Highlights
Wear your curly perm long and loose, with just a touch caramel highlights scattered throughout.
20. Brushed-Out Bob
Give your bob an extra bit of volume by running your comb through the length of your perm.
