Want a perm, have never had one before.

Any tips? How do I know exactly which type of perm I want? Is there a site or something I can go to and see the different kinds? Tired of my straight hair! Help? :)

  • a stylist can offer you all this during a consultation. They also know your face shape, and hair type so will be able to suggest the best types of perms and styles for YOU..

  • If your going to get one get ready to maintain it. You must take very good care of perm hair. I've had it done a few times and just got tired of it. I had spiral perm done.

  • Definitely take in pictures to your stylist as to what type of curl you want (loose, tight, spiral, etc.) so they know what type of rollers to put in.
