Root perms can offer the look of a blowout with minimal styling. Lifting your roots can add instant volume to your hair.

Additionally, softly perming layers of your hair can add big voluminous waves and bouncy volume, making hair look healthy and styled immediately after washing.

Before and After

The technique is used to add volume, lift, and texture to the hair at the roots, giving it a more voluminous and styled appearance, but requires much less maintenance than traditional perms.
