Wherever Karl Nessler is, he's looking at all the women with their bouncy curls and patting himself on the back. Women all over the world are sporting different types of perms. And all of them should be eternally grateful to Karl. He did, after all, invent the permanent wave, that we so fondly call, perms! The best part about this hairstyle is, that you can wear it short or even up to medium length. In this HairGlamourista article, let us see how you can enhance your mane with this gorgeous hairstyle.

Perms that Complement Long Hair

If you're looking for a different hairstyle, but are not willing to get a haircut try out perms for your long hair. It will be a refreshing change from your straight hair, and you'll have the pleasure of bouncy curls at your beck and call! Given below are the varieties that you can choose from.

Spiral Perms
Go in for a spiral perm hairstyle, if you're looking for a slight wave. Spiral perms are really easy to get. What's more is you can try perming your hair at home too. Just get a spiral perm kit of a reputed brand, read the instructions, and get this fabulous hairstyle. The best part is, you can let your hair go wild for casual occasions, and for formal events, you can tone it down by tying it in a low, loose bun. Spiral perms are the latest rage and many celebrities have been spotted sporting it.

Curly Perms
If you've finally decided on perming your hair, then go all out and get some classic curls. Curls or perms can be loose or tight. If you're wondering which one will go with your face structure, here's a tip. Short or tight curls will look better on a round face. Loose curls framing a long, oval shaped face look better! Let them hang loose, or tie them up in a high ponytail, both look great!

Spot/Weave Perms
This is my personal favorite when it comes to permed hairstyles. It involves just a partial perming of the hair. Which means that your hair will be permed in such a way, that it will appear to have a natural wave to it. Team up this hairstyle with bangs and you have a gorgeous mane, ready to be flaunted! This hairstyle looks best when the hair is left hanging loose. Tying it up will not do it full justice. So, even for a formal event, you can just adorn your hair with a pretty, sparkling clip or small hairpins.

Body Perm
For all of you who complain of having thin and flat hair, here's a perfect solution for it. Get a body wave perm. This type of perm will appear to add volume to your hair. And for your flat hair woes, it will add a decent amount of bounce to your hair. So you don't have to worry about having limp and lifeless hair. You can show off these gorgeous curls and watch others turn green. You can also go in for a perm that begins at the roots. This will add further lift to your hair and give it that fresh and vibrant look and feel.

So, what do you think? Are you ready for a makeover with perms? Trust me, there's little better than a new hairstyle to give you that rejuvenating feeling about yourself! If you're afraid, get over it! You've got nothing to lose. Only a head of stunning curls to gain!
