Permed Short Hairstyles

Permed short hairstyles are great for women who want to wash and go but can't get their desired level of body and volume without serious time invested in blow-drying and styling. Try these permed short hairstyles to see which one is right for you.

Masses of Curls
Ask your stylist for a layered cut and a tight perm for a full, gorgeous head of hair. After shampooing with perm shampoo and conditioning, towel dry your hair. Use a generous amount of curl defining gel or smoothing lotion, then work the styling product through your hair. Use your fingers to define curls and encourage your hair to fall into waves and spirals. When the styling product and your hair itself has all dried, run your hands over your hair like a loose rake to eliminate any crunchiness and bring out the shine.

Wavy, Flippy Short Hair
If you want wavy flipped hair, you can ask for a layered bob and then get a loose perm that will give you body and flexibility without tight curls. When styling, you'll want to use plenty of moisturizing gel or mousse and finger dry your hair, twisting your waves and curls. You can also use a diffuser at the end of your hair dryer and scrunch curls while they dry. If you want flips, you can blow dry this style using a small round brush, using the dryer to work in large curls, then flipping the curls out while using a hair paste to define the locks.

Just Need a Lift?
If you don't want curly hair, but your hair refuses to give you the body you need, ask you stylist for a root perm-a perm that just adds lift and body at the roots of your hair only. This is a great solution for women who love short hair with body but whose hair is limp and lifeless, clinging to the scalp. Now you can have straight short hair with body-the best of both worlds.
