Curl Power 2023: Perm and Texture Services Steal the Spotlight as a Hot Hair Trend

September 01, 2021

In the world of hair fashion, trends come and go, often circling back with a modern twist that reignites the magic of the past. One hair trend has confidently strutted back into the limelight in 2023: perms and texture services. Gone are the days of over-permed celebrity mishaps of the 80s. Perms and texture treatments are back with a 21st-century rebrand, offering a plethora of styles that embrace the versatility and natural beauty of curls.

Unlocking the Perm and Texture Magic

So, what exactly are perms and texture services? These treatments are all about crafting curls and waves that dance with life, whether your hair is naturally straight or wavy. A perm, short for "permanent wave," utilizes a combination of chemicals and heat to create a new structure for your hair, producing everything from tight curls to beachy waves that last for weeks or even months. Texture services, on the other hand, enhance your natural waves or curls, infusing them with newfound vitality and definition.

The Longevity and Low-Maintenance Appeal

The beauty of perms and texture services lies in their ability to provide long-lasting transformations without the constant need for touch-ups. Depending on your hair type and the specific treatment, these styles can keep their charm for several weeks to months. Unlike daily curling routines that require heat styling and time, perms and texture treatments grant you effortless elegance from the moment you wake up, freeing up your mornings for more important things.

Maintenance Made Simple

Maintaining your newly permed curls or waves doesn't have to be a complicated task. With just a few simple steps, you can keep your style looking fantastic. Start off by using sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners that are gentle on your curls, like the Redken Curvaceous High Foam Cleanser and Conditioner. These products are designed to protect and enhance your curls, preserving the longevity of your treatment. To ensure your curls stay bouncy and full of life, consider adding the Kérastase Discipline Curl Ideal Oleo Curl Cream to your routine for added definition and frizz control. Regular trims will also be your best friend in maintaining the shape and health of your curls, ensuring they remain bouncy, soft, and beautiful.

Men and Women: Embracing the Curly Revolution

The beauty of the perm and texture trend is that it's not confined to any one group of people. Both men and women are embracing the curly revolution, proudly flaunting curls, waves, and textures that accentuate their unique style. The versatility of these treatments means they're suitable for any hair type, length, or gender, transforming straight locks into a canvas of artistry.

The Trendy Looks: From Beachy Waves to Classic Curls

The realm of perms and texture services offers a wide array of trendy looks that cater to different tastes and personalities.

Beachy Waves: Imagine capturing the carefree vibe of a day at the beach in your hair. Beachy waves are all about that laid-back charm and effortless elegance. To achieve this look, opt for a loose perm that creates soft waves cascading down your shoulders. To enhance and maintain your beachy waves, use Redken's Curvaceous Wind Up Reactivating Spray. This spray revitalizes your waves while providing moisture and definition.

Tight Curls with Bangs: This style combines boldness and playfulness. Tight curls paired with bangs create a striking contrast that draws attention to your eyes and facial features. To get those defined curls, consider a perm with smaller rods. For maintaining this look, Kérastase Discipline Curl Ideal Oleo Curl Cream is your go-to product. It adds a touch of shine, tames frizz, and keeps your curls looking polished and sophisticated.

Messy Textured Bob: The messy textured bob is all about embracing the "I woke up like this" attitude. This style exudes confidence and has a casual chic vibe. To achieve this look, opt for a textured perm with varied curl sizes. To keep the texture and volume in check, use Pureology's Style + Protect Texture Finishing Spray. This spray adds texture, holds your style, and provides UV protection, ensuring your messy bob stays on point.

Glamorous Vintage Curls: Channel your inner Hollywood diva with glamorous vintage curls that radiate timeless charm. These luxurious curls evoke a sense of sophistication and grace. Ask for a perm that creates uniform, cascading curls. To maintain the glamour, use Redken's Curvaceous CCC Spray Gel. This gel-spray hybrid offers control, moisture, and curl definition, helping you maintain those vintage curls with elegance.

Textured Pixie Perm: Short hair can also benefit from the magic of perms. A textured pixie perm adds volume and movement to your short locks, creating a chic and edgy style. This look infuses your look with a touch of sassiness. To maintain the texture and structure of your pixie perm, consider using a product like Redken Wind Blown 05 Dry Finishing Spray. It provides a flexible hold that keeps your hair looking lively throughout the day while adding an airy texture to your styled pixie.
