Strange things are becoming trendy, neon colored hair, strange haircuts and people are sporting customized denim jackets. This points to one thing: the era of the 80s is back. So, it goes without saying that the over the top hair trend of that time is back as well. Perms, yes, that’s what we are talking about. Back then, people had to use harsh chemicals for getting that perfect look. But today, with advanced technology in hair styling, you can keep the health of your hair and still attain that perfect permed look. Plus you can achieve different looks with different permed hairstyles. Before perming, thoroughly wash your hair to remove any dirt and let the perming agent enter into the hair shaft easily. The bonds that determine the texture of your hair have to be broken for making your hair more flexible, hence the perming agents are used. The types of perm you are getting, i.e, acid, alkaline or endothermic perm, decides the kind of perming lotion that will be used. As the lotions break down the bonds of your hair, the strands of your hair are then wrapped around the curling rods for redefining their structures and giving them curly look. The texture and thickness of your hair decides how long it should be left around the rods. The type of rods used, i.e, thin, medium or wide is decided by the kind of curls you want, tight, medium, wavy or relaxed. After the curling rods are removed, neutraliser is sprayed on your hair for reconnecting the bonds and then those neutralisers are washed off from your hair. Then for a few days, you must not apply shampoo, heat to other hair products on your hair. Your perm is done. There are varieties of perm you can pick from. You can have whichever type you want to try. There are conventional perms and bolder options as well. There are tight curls. Loose and wavy is another good option. Then there are really wild curls and a tamed mane as well. You have a wide array of perming styles. We are listing top 50 different types of perm hairstyles to look gorgeous and you can pick one that suits your look.

Taking into account how much girls lament the frizz that they are cursed with, it is just amazing how beautiful the frizz that is created by brushing the perms looks.

The Mohawk Perm

The only thing better than a hair transformation is a double hair transformation. The Mohawk perm is a daring and cool style to sport, if you dare.

Also, it will create a beautiful definition in them. Then again, there is something so different and outstanding about jet black curls that it can’t be compared to any other styles.

The Relaxed Waves

Getting a perm doesn’t mean you have to have the tight curls. Thanks to the digital perm, relaxed waves are now a viable option. In this hairstyle your waves will be more prominent when you hair is dry, unlike the normal perm. And you don’t have to have super tight curls for this hairstyle.

But to tell you the truth, this big crazy perm looks pretty nice, in an ‘in your face’ kind of way. Get your medium length hair permed into some crazy serious big curls and create this gorgeous but crazy curly bob look.

The Carrie Bradshaw Perm

Carrie Bradshaw has proved to all the women of the world that you don’t always have to have a super styled poker straight hair for looking gorgeous. You can get your hair permed into absolutely unruly curls and still look sexy. It gives you the perfect just ready to hit the city look.

Enormous Perm

Beyoncé sported this look, the enormous perm hairstyle in the Goldmember movie premiere at Austin Powers in 2002. Needless to say, she pulled it off stunningly well. This is a very bold look and it is indeed obvious that you will think a hundred times before sporting this style but if you do you will definitely make a lasting impression.

Burgundy Short Perm

When it comes to experimenting with hair colors we often think of Rihanna. She has done a fair share of experiments with hair colors and burgundy has been a big hit for her. The deep red short hair is shaped into tight spiral curls that look wonderful, and it still looks classy.

Swooped Bangs

For the classic perm look, the size of the hair doesn’t matter. You could go for swooped bangs and hair that is long on the top and short on the sides. The perm can add a lot of volume to the hair. It works well in reducing roundness, thus accentuating the angles of the face.

Hot Perm Bouncy Curls

Luz Pavon, Mexican supermodel is a well-known name in the fashion industry and an inspiring entrepreneur. What took her to the top of the fashion industry is her curly and thick hair that she used to endorse many products. A wide curling rod with a hot perm is what you need to imitate her hairstyle and rock the world.

Boho Chic Perm

The long and minimally styled hairstyle of Vanessa Hudgens, cascading down like a perfect waterfall of curls is really breathtaking. Therefore, for this haircut, you will need waist length hair. If your hair isn't that long, you will have to wait till you attain that length. Then you can go for the hot spiral perm.

Acid Perm

Using harsh chemicals can be very scary, especially the things that they can do that to your hair. So, if you want a less harmful way to perm your medium length hair you must go for an acid perm. If you are new to perming your hair, you should try this treatment first. It allows you to achieve beautiful loose S-shaped curls and causes very little damage to hair as compared to the alkaline perm.

Silver Fox Perm

Silver hair in itself is a bold statement. Adding giant curls will take to the greater heights- literally. This will look good on bob-length hair. These curls are tight and made with larger curling rods. These curls snake around your head, giving you a crazily bold look. So, if you have guts to do something bold and different, this is the look for you.

Shrinking Curls

If you have medium hair this hairstyle is very good for you. These spiral curls start loosely from the roots and get tighter as they near the end of the hair. The depth is created by subtle blonde colored highlights. This hairstyle will give your hair double the volume. I am sure you will love this perm hairstyle.

Brown Bouncy Perm

The solution used in perming hair breaks down the keratin bond in your hair which then restructures your locks when placed around the curling rods. To attain this look, you need to color your hair brown and then have the locks wrapped around the large rods. This will ensure that your sexy curls aren’t too tight and stay bouncy. This hairstyle will work well on medium to long hair lengths.

A-Line Curl

If you love adding modern flair to your perm hairstyle just couple it up with the trendy haircut. In this hairstyle, very beautiful and gorgeous jet black curls are accompanied by the A-Line haircut. The wet looks of the curls give a little more laid back look to your hairstyle.

The Flapper’s Perm of 1920’s

Cute short hairstyles were considered poodle like way back when, but not certainly not anymore. This one is the great version of the hairstyles that have been popular for ages. This style is a bit messier and hence pretty easy to keep up. It is good for warm climates since it keeps your neck free. The small V-shaped section at the nape not only lengthens the hairstyle but also creates a dramatic silhouette for the haircut.

These are just a few perm hairstyles for you to consider. The more you play with your haircut and perm options, the more variety you can create with them. However, you must not experiment with different curls and different cuts if you are not bold enough to carry whatever hairstyle you get. If you are just a little bold, you should go with the more commonly used styles. You can find many more on fashion and beauty sites and in magazines. Even perms have personalities, so always pick the one that suits yours. You might decide to get a very bold perm in a moment and then you may not be able to carry the style you opted for. In that case, there is nothing much that can be done, especially if you have short hair. So, choose wisely. Otherwise, stick to the conventional perm hairstyles. So, are you ready to stun the world?
