How Long Does It Take To Have A Perm?

It can take between one to two hours to complete your perming service.  The length of time it takes depends on long and how thick your hair is. 

We will be able to give you a better indication of how long your appointment should take during your complimentary perming consultation at Gatsby & Miller Hair Salon in Amersham.

During your time with us, why not enjoy some lunch, a cappuccino or a glass of wine from our cafe?  We will be happy to serve you a bite to eat while you are waiting for your perm to set.

Will A Perm Damage My Hair?

While a perm changes the structure of your hair, we will NOT perm hair that is in poor condition.  The health of your hair remains our priority at all times. 

During your appointment, your Gatsby & Miller perming specialist will wind your hair around curling rods to create the wavy shape you desire. Next comes the chemical solution which is designed to break the structural bonds in your hair.  Finally, a neutralising solution is added to reform the hair's structure as it takes on its new wavy shape.

Is It Possible To Have Waves Instead Of Curls?

Forget the tight curly perms on the 1980s.  The modern perm is more relaxed to give you beautiful waves rather than tight curls. 

We have different sized curling rods to achieve the wavy hairstyle you desire.  It is worth, however, bearing in mind that it can take up to 28 hours for your perm to relax. 

Your curls also gradually relax over the next few months.  Most modern perms last between three and six months - but this will depend on your hair type, how tight you wanted your curls to be, and the care you take with your new wavy hair.
