Some people may have permed their hair, but may have trouble reproducing the movement of the hair ends at the hair salon. With a bob style perm, it is necessary to devise ways to create lightness and movement. If the hair can be set well while taking advantage of the perm’s features, the ideal hair style can be reproduced.
Drying is also important to create waves.
The method of drying bob perms by spinning the ends inward like long styles is not suitable. If you wrap the hair around your fingers as you dry it, the curls will be tight and the lightness characteristic of the bob will not be achieved.
To create a light and airy look, cover the hair ends with the palm of your hand while curling them along the perm flow, and dry them with weak airflow. This will make it easier to get the shape of the perm.
Drying from the root of the hair rather than from the tips, which are easier to dry, also reduces damage to the hair.
Mousse to create movement in damp hair
Because perms are unique in that they take shape when wet, it is important to wet the area to be permed before beginning to set. Moisten the hair in general by taking a shower or splashing it in the washroom.
While still wet, use a permanent mousse. Concentrate the mousse on the ends of the hair and other areas that have been permed. For a bob with a small amount of hair, you can recreate permed waves just by rubbing mousse into the hair. After applying mousse, let it dry naturally.
Maintain style with wax
After drying mousse-applied hair, the next step is to maintain the style with wax. This is because hair movement is lost over time when just mousse is applied.
Spread the wax onto the palm of your hand and apply it to the ends, top, and bangs. As you pick up the wax, make sure to spread it between your fingers as well. This will ensure that the wax is evenly distributed throughout the hair.
Avoid applying too much to the bangs, as this will make them look greasy. Conversely, wax the top part firmly to create movement and volume to achieve a small face effect.
Digital perm prevents damage with oil-based treatment.
The same perm differs from a regular perm and a digital perm. Digital perms are characterized by the fact that waves tend to appear when the hair is dry, so it is important to dry the hair thoroughly.
The heat from the dryer may damage the hair, so you need to prevent drying and damage by applying a treatment product before drying. Use an oil-based treatment that does not rinse out to obtain shine and moisture.
Because of the lack of length, a bob perm style tends to look just like sleeping in if the movement and waves are not utilized properly. Know the characteristics of perms and learn how to set them effectively.
