If a perm is not done the way you imagined at a hair salon, it is very difficult to tell them. Especially if you have been coming to the salon for a long time and have become a regular customer. However, you are the customer, so there is no need to be dissatisfied. This does not mean that you are building a truly good relationship with the restaurant.
Let’s start with some tips on how to properly reorder and still maintain a good relationship with the restaurant.
When I couldn’t perm it the way I wanted…
The feeling of the perm is different from the image, or the perm is removed after a week or so… These problems seem to be more common than expected. In fact, there are many factors that are not known until the perm is applied, even by professionals. It is difficult to know how the perm will work and how long it will last. This kind of trouble is especially likely to occur when you get a perm for the first time at a particular store.
In the case of so-called normal cold perms, it is actually undesirable to give perms again in a short period of time, considering the damage to the hair. However, many hair salons guarantee to stop perms within a week, so if you are concerned about this, you should take advantage of it.
You should inform the salon immediately after the perm, or by phone, and ask if it is possible to have the perm re-done. Most hair salons should be able to help you politely.
Time to reapply perms
If you are reapplying the perm at a hair salon, please reapply the perm within the warranty period or within the time period specified by the store. In most cases, this period should be within 1 week to 10 days after the perm is applied.
However, in some rare cases, the shop may not agree to reapply the perm or may charge an additional fee. To avoid this, it is necessary to ask the store in advance if they guarantee the reapplication of perms and for how many days. This is the best way to prevent problems.
Measures to be taken when ordering a perm
In the first place, the way you order your first perm can prevent you from having to reapply it. Let us show you how to do that at the end.
Usually, when you order a perm, the stylist will usually give you the most orthodox cold perm. However, cold perm has a property that “curls easily when the hair is wet, and in some cases, when the hair is dry, it becomes difficult to get curls. In other words, “hair care + styling” is essential for cold perm.
On the other hand, digital perms have the opposite characteristic of cold perms: curls are more likely to appear when the hair is dry than when it is wet. Therefore, by using digital perms in dry seasons such as winter, and cold perms in humid seasons such as the rainy season, it is easier to feel the effect of perms even without careful styling.
By using different perms depending on the nature of the perm and the season, you may be able to reduce the trouble of having to reapply perms.
