What would you recommend for a 'growing-out' perm???

I had my hair permmed last August--a body wave. It looked great and was really easy to take care hair was reallly long and i've had it cut once to 're-style' it. Since, if i fix it up and take forever to make it look good--it looks great...but other than that it is flat on top and curly on bottom and i honestly don't have the time every day to fix it up...... plus, that makes it look fancy and i am a sahm... ha any suggestions on hair cut? or fix?

  • If you still have pretty long hair then a great haircut for more volume is a 180. It gives you beautiful long layers while adding alot of lift for the top, and you don't have to lose your length. And if you go to a stylist that has no idea what you're talking about, then leave emediatly! And go to another stylist because every stylist should deffinatly know how to do a 180. It's using a stationary guide at the very top of your head and pulling section by section up to that guide and cut, it will shorten up your inside layers while keeping all of your beatiful length. After the haircut blowdry your hair upside down and you'll be amazed at the amount of lift and volume you'll have! you may even have to tame it down some:)

  • you could always put a relaxer in to take out the waves if you're going back straight

  • If you loved the perm, would you get it re-permed? Both posts above were good.

  • if you want to keep the length, you will need another perm. if you are open to cutting a few inches off to give the perm more life, then that would be my suggestion.
