What is a digital Perm?

Digital perm is a comparatively new perm technique. 

Make curls with perm solution and hot rollers with the temperature regulated by a machine.

Normal perm basically requires only a perm solution, on the other hand, digital perm requires heat as well as a (different) solution.

What are the advantages of the digital perm?

The curls are most visible when the hair is dry, so if it’s wet, the curls will look loosen.

Less hair products needed to style the hair compared to the normal cold perm.

The effect of digital perm usually lasts about 3 times longer than regular perm.

Recommended for people whose curls did not last long with normal perms.

The curls look more natural than normal perms.

I have a sensitive scalp, can I still receive the service?

Yes, you can. Digital perm solution does not touch your scalp and skin. Consultation needed.

Let us know you have a sensitive scalp/skin before the service starts, and we’ll ensure to apply the solution without touching the scalp/skin.

What are the disadvantages of the digital perm?

Difficult to create volume at the top of the head because curls cannot be created at the root.

  The rollers get very hot, so we have to avoid the area around the root.

1.5 to 2 times more expensive than normal perm.
