Butterfly pony-tail perm:

In this style of perming, hair is fully curled. First of all, part your hair from the middle onto left and right up to the nape. Then tie the 2 parts separately into a pony-tail.

Now divide the pony-tail into many small parts and curl them around perming solution. Follow the same routine for the other pony-tail. After sometime, open the hair slowly and carefully.

Root perm:

This perm does not just make the hair attractive; it also makes your body smarter and taller. In root perming, the hair is given a crown shape. Begin from the middle portion of the hair and roll them on the perm rods in small lumps one after the other.

When you have finished rolling the hair, clip the rod and apply perming lotion on the rolled portion. Follow the same procedure with the back and front portion of your hair. To protect your hair, cover the head with a plastic wrapper (cap).

Top knot perm:

For beautiful and lustrous hair, top knot perm is found to be the most effective. Tie your hair into a pony tail on the top of your head. After this, divide the tied hair into small parts. Now roll them on the perming rods starting from the ends and clip the rods near the pony-tail. Apply perming solution on the rolled portion.

    Root perms are sometimes offered by salons that emphasize a high fashion image. These can look marvelous, giving the hair a real lift, but they lose their appeal as the hair grows and the curl moves away from the root.

    Perms for short hair are not recommended either. Short hair and layered hair can end up looking unruly and unmanageable after a perm
