Default Places to get a perm?

Hello,

I've been thinking about getting a perm for my hair but don't know any good places to go. I don't have a TON of money to blow, so cheaper is better, but if anyone knows of any quality places that specialize in or provide perms, I'd appreciate any tips!

Sorry. Haven't seen a hairdresser do a perm in forever.

yeah i don't think anyone does perms anymore BUT there's the aveda school in chapel hill and a mitchells school somewhere (cary maybe?) where the students do the work for super cheap... but it could end up disastrous...

Hitto Salon in Cary does digital perm, it's not the 80's perm, it's more like big soft wave/curls to add body.

I have to ask, what age group are you in? Is there a reason why you want a perm? They just aren't' done much anymore at all.

Sorry...I can recommend a few good moderately prices salons, but heck, how does one know if they do good perms or not?

I'm 17. I just want a perm to add body and volume, maybe some big loose curls. I like curly/wavy hair, and right now my flat, boring locks aren't cutting it. I didn't think perms were such a rarity these days But thank you to those of you who were helpful!

I thought maybe you were African American. Big difference in perms btw Euros and AAs.

I would not do a perm. Perms haven't been popular since I was in middle school and that was in the early 90s. I would suggest finding a good hairdresser. There are plenty of other ways to get curls. Maybe look at some hair books or online for ideas.

Good luck. Also if you see someone with hair you like, ask for a recommendation on a stylist.

The body wave perm is becoming very popular lately. Perms are not out-dated at all any more. I don't know where you're getting your information from. Call around to your local stylists and see which ones will do the body wave perm.
