What is a perm?

A perm, short for ‘permanent wave,’ is a chemical treatment that alters the structure of the hair to create curls, waves, or volume. This process involves applying a chemical solution to break and reshape the hair bonds, leading to a semi-permanent change in texture or curl pattern.

Why are perms for men so popular?

Gents perms have gained popularity due to their versatility in achieving various styles, including adding texture, volume, or creating defined curls. They offer a low-maintenance styling option, particularly for men seeking effortless yet trendy looks.

How do I know if a perm is the right choice?

Consider a perm if you desire a change in hair texture, such as adding waves or curls, or enhancing volume. However, it’s essential to discuss with a stylist to determine whether a perm suits your hair type, lifestyle, and desired outcome.

What does a perm do to your hair?

A perm chemically alters the hair’s structure, breaking and reforming the bonds to achieve the desired texture or curl pattern. This process can cause temporary damage or dryness, requiring adequate post-perm hair care.

What is the downside to a perm?

Potential downsides include damage or dryness post-treatment, especially if not adequately maintained. Over-processing or incorrect application can result in frizziness, breakage, or an undesired texture. Additionally, if not suitable for your hair type, a perm may not achieve the desired outcome.

How much does a perm cost?

The cost of gents perms varies based on factors like location, stylist expertise, and hair length. In Abingdon salons, prices typically range from £80 to £150 or more, with variations in Central Oxford. Wisteria Avenue’s average gents perm cost this year was around £90. It’s advisable to consult with a stylist for an accurate quote tailored to your hair needs, and some salons might offer additional treatments or maintenance packages post-perm.

Perms carry a pre-booking consultation alongside an on-the-day consultation.

The pre-booking consultation is to work through suitability for a perm, answer questions and work through availability.

The on-the-day consultation is to discuss the intricacies of a perm and what the best route to achieving a desired perm is.

Yes! We stock JOICO products in salon and we can recommend products which are bespoke to your perm.

We also offer in-salon treatments to help with improving the end result both in terms of colour and condition of your balayage.

In most cases, yes. 

Typically if something can’t be achieved, it’s most commonly a lack of hair!

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.

You’re not alone. Most gents are first-time perm clients.

A salon visit can be intimidating so our goal is to be as welcoming, consultative and as helpful as possible. In this case, we work through an introduction of what perms what, the maintenance, product usage, aftercare and any questions you might have.
