The difference between them? 

A skillful stylist who can give them the low maintenance curl they deserve. 

Some women have the misconception that perms are very hard to manage but perm connoisseurs will tell you that nothing is further from the truth. 

Yes, you still have to blowdry your hair but really, all you need is to twirl your fingers back, blow your hair dry... and you are done!

Of course, that has to depend on the style of perm you choose as well. 

We rank the following perms from the EASIEST to manage for perms that do not take much time for maintenance. 

1. Setting Perm or Rebonding Perm


The EASIEST perm to manage is the setting perm or the rebonding perm where your hair is straight at the roots and curled at the ends.

With straight hair at the roots, you don't have to worry about how to blowdry your hair near the roots - get dry it and it will look neat.

The voluminous curls at the end are also pretty easy to manage as you just have to twirl your hair back to get the voluminous sexy vibe.

While this is best for ladies with long locks, it can actually work for mid-length hair as well.

The hair is mostly left straight at the top with the curls starting after the ears. 

2. No-Curl Cushion Perm 


It sounds weird to describe a perm as having no curls, but these perms are exactly that.

Strangers won't be able to tell if your hair has been permed or if it is naturally like this while friends and colleagues will be able to see a perceptible increase in volume. With no definitive curl structure, you won't look too dressed up - perfect for those who prefer a natural look. It works beautifully with mid-length hair and even short hair because it fixes your bob/lob in all the right places.

Cushion Perm by Style NA

Stylists tend to use a combination of S and C curls for this perm. As the perm is not as structured, you don't have to worry about blowdrying a certain way for it to look good. Just blowdry it till its about 100% dry to achieve the volume without the curls.

If you want more defined curls, just blowdry till its about 70% and use the curl cream to make the curls more obvious. 

3. Romantic Big Wave Perm


The signature of this perm is its big waves that increase the volume of your hair. Unlike Setting / rebonding perms, you'll find the curls starting higher than of typical rebonding perms.

Some stylists may even give your roots an extra root perm in order to achieve the voluminous feel for your fringe.

You have to be a BIT more careful during blowdry and put more focus on drying your fringe a certain way to give it the "pong" feeling.
