Are You a Good Candidate for a Perm?
Perms work best on hair that has not been coloured or highlighted. The chemicals are too harsh for double-processed or heavily highlighted hair. Perming hair that's already been chemically treated from highlights or colour can cause frizz.
If you have dry hair or loads of short layers, you are not the best candidate for a perm. Perms will dry hair out even more and a perm on short, layered hair could end up poodle-like. Not sure if your hair is a good candidate for a perm? Ask Figaro Salon perm experts. You'll want to tell them every chemical process your hair has been through in the last couple of years.
How Long Does a Perm Take?
Perms take one to two hours, depending on how long your hair is. Our stylist will apply a single chemical solution to break the structural bonds in your hair, and another one called a "neutralizer". Also keep in mind, a perm takes 28 hours to relax. It means you can not shampoo your hair for 2 days.
How Long Does a Perm Last?
Most perms generally last for about 2-6 months. Body foam perm will last for about 4-6 weeks.
Prep Your Hair for the Perm!
You don’t need to prepare your hair for a perm. We will do it for you when you come according to the perm solution type.
The Size of the Rod Matters!
The tightness of the curl depends on the size of the rod and the length of time the solution stays in. If you're worried you'll end up with too tight curls, ask our stylist to show you the types of rods she is using.
How to Find a Stylist who experienced with perm?
Not all stylists do perms these days, and you don't want one who doesn't do them on a semi-regular basis. We suggest calling salons and asking if they have someone who specializes in perms. If you decide to come to Figaro salon, please, contact Lina or Elena. Those ladies are the most experienced professional hairstylits to have a perm with. They both had an european education specializing in ladies hairstyles.
What to Bring to Your Appointment?
We recommend to bring a picture(s) of the type of wave you like. Just telling your stylist what kind of curl leaves you in jeopardy of getting super-duper tight ringlets. Our salon perm experts can control the amount of wave they give you as well as the the part of the hair they want to perm. We would not recommend to have a perm if you are pregnant or having your period. Results would be unpredictable.

Book a Consultation into your Appointment!
It would be better for you to come for the professional consultation first. Perm is very popular in 2020 and 2021. We do perm on asian hair too! You will discuss with our stylist not only what you want (show the pictures) but what you don't want (i.e. the crimp-like curls of the 80s).
