Permanent Waves You Will Love in San Diego, California


Adding Glamour and Fun to Your Everyday Life

Flip through your latest issue of People, Vogue or Vanity Fair. Notice many of the models and celebrities’ gorgeous natural-looking waves. Can you see the way their locks seem to bounce with life even in a picture? Permanent waves, or “perms,” are a great and easy way to fashion a timelessly cheerful look for yourself that you and your friends will absolutely love.

A Process Tailored to You

Although we offer various perm techniques, all permanent waves involve wrapping your hair into your desired shapes and coils and then applying a reforming chemical treatment to re-bond your hair into the perfect curl. As the name indicates, this is a semi-permanent effect that will add bounce and spirit to your hair for up to six months.

Deciding What You Want

We personalize our permanent wave treatment to your favored appearance and result. So settling on the right look is important. We will help you think through your options, browse examples of various styles and make the right decision about the length and looseness of your new curls.

Know Your Hair

Familiarity with your hair as well as the products and previous treatments you have undergone are essential to avoid adverse effects of a new treatment like breakage or hair loss. We will sit down with you, listen to your hair story and recommend the best process to keep your hair fresh and healthy.

Pre-Perm Haircut

Although not impossible, it may be more difficult to get a haircut or trim after your perm. We therefore highly recommend a quick touch-up or full cut beforehand to ensure that your perm keeps its natural and flawless spring.
