In this element you will be learning how to carry out a perm from the beginning right through to the end, curled result.
Perming is one of the technical units of the NVQ, which requires you to practise in order to improve your winding technique, correct placing of perm rods and timing. Once you have practised and developed these areas, you will be ready to perm a client’s hair, while remembering and putting into practice all that you have learned from Elements H12.1 and H12.2.
Perming is one of the most rewarding hairdressing treatments, as you can achieve dramatically different results on a client’s hair. For example, by perming, you can add large, subtle curls to give root lift and support to styles, or you can turn long, straight hair into tumbling, curled tresses. You can also completely change the shape of a hairstyle by adding curls.

What you will learn
• Preparing the hair for perming
• Factors influencing the service
• The perming procedure
