What is a Beach Wave perm?

A beach wave perm is a styling technique that creates loose, relaxed waves reminiscent of the natural, tousled waves often seen after a day at the beach. This type of perm aims to produce soft, effortless curls, similar to those achieved from the saltwater and wind exposure at the coast. It involves using larger perm rods or techniques that give a more undone, casual appearance rather than tight, defined curls. The result is a laid-back, carefree hairstyle that provides a subtle, relaxed texture, perfect for those seeking a natural, low-maintenance look with gentle, free-flowing waves.

Why are beach waves so popular?

Beach wave perms have gained popularity due to their ability to deliver a relaxed, carefree, and effortlessly chic hairstyle. Mimicking the natural waves typically seen after a day at the beach, these perms offer soft, loose waves that impart a casual and laid-back appearance. The appeal of beach wave perms lies in their ability to create a low-maintenance yet stylish look, providing a subtle, natural texture that suits various hair lengths and types. Their popularity stems from the desire for a more relaxed and easy-to-maintain hairstyle, perfect for those seeking an effortless, tousled aesthetic.

How do I know if a beach wave is the right choice?

A beach wave perm might be the right choice if you prefer a relaxed, casual look with soft, loose waves reminiscent of a day spent by the coast. Consider this perm if you desire a low-maintenance style that exudes a natural, tousled texture, perfect for creating a carefree and effortless appearance. Ideal for clients seeking a more relaxed, undone aesthetic without tight curls or significant volume.

What does a beach wave do to your hair?

A beach wave perm adds subtle, relaxed waves to your hair, mimicking the natural tousled waves typically associated with spending time at the beach. It imparts a gentle, casual texture, creating soft, loose waves that provide a laid-back, effortless appearance. This type of perm enhances your hair’s texture and movement, delivering a relaxed and carefree aesthetic without tight curls or significant volume.

What is the downside to a beach wave?

  • Limited Curl Definition: Beach wave perms create soft, loose waves rather than defined curls. If you prefer more structured or defined curls, this style may not meet your expectations.
  • Maintenance: Over time, the waves from a beach wave perm might loosen or fade, requiring touch-ups or additional styling to maintain the desired texture.

How much does a beach wave cost?

Perms across the board are typically prices based on volume and thickness of hair rather than the type of perm. in 2023, the average cost of a perm ranged from £80 – £150 dependent on the salon and level of Stylist.

Most salons tend to either no longer list perms as a bookable service nor promote it due to the frequency of being hands-on. A lot of Hair Stylists spend little to no time practicing perms therefore the familiarity to execute a perm is limited. At Wisteria Avenue we specialise in perms undertaking these weekly.

Balayages aren’t the same for every client.

We don’t expect clients to know the terminology of every type of balayage! However, pictures always help. If you have a vision in mind, we encourage you to bring this with you to your consultation.

Usually the differences between balayages don’t affect the price too much. For example, the ‘money piece’ is a popular addition right now. This is a great option yet doesn’t affect the price.

Transitioning to perms can feel daunting, especially if it’s your first time. We aim to make your salon experience comforting and informative. Our approach involves introducing you to perms, covering the process, necessary maintenance, recommended products, aftercare guidelines, and ensuring we’re available to address any uncertainties or questions you might have.
