A good perm style can be rather counterproductive if it fails. Therefore, it is important to check the types and characteristics of perms in advance. Here are the types of men’s perms for short to medium length hair.
Five recommended men’s perms
- Body perm
This perm is applied to the roots of the hair using larger rods. Rather than creating waves in the hair, it raises the roots of the hair to create volume and flow, making it easier to style, especially for people with medium-length hair.
Pin perms are perms that do not use rods, but instead pin hair between sheets of paper to create bundles of hair and play with the hair ends. Since it does not use rods, it is recommended for people with short hair, as it allows for flexible nuances at the ends of the hair, even in short styles.
The spiral perm is a perm that uses long rods to curl the entire hair in a slightly fine spiral shape. It creates beautiful waves with a three-dimensional feel throughout the hair, and the range of styles that can be created is wide depending on the strength of the perm. It is recommended for people with a certain amount of hair length.
- Twist perm
The twist perm is literally a perm in which strands of hair are twisted with the fingers and fixed in place. It creates a frizzy nuance and can easily change the impression even for those with short hair or low volume. Recommended for those who want to change their look to a brighter atmosphere.
- Digital Perm
A digital perm is a perm in which a heated rod is wrapped around the hair and then a perm solution is applied. Since heat is applied, the perm is easily produced as the hair dries, so it is also called a “shape-memory perm. It is not possible to get a perm if the rods cannot be curled, such as for people with very short hair, but it is one of the best perms in terms of longevity.
Mixed perm available!
The five types of perms introduced here can be mixed and matched, such as body perm at the roots + pin perm at the ends. So please consult with your hair stylist to find a perm style that suits you!
