Piggyback Perm

27 minutesInstructor: Charmaine Piche

Charmaine Piche’s first perming tutorial teaches the basics of a piggyback perm. A piggyback wind is ideal for short and long hair. The perm is wound on alternate sized rods to create different types of movement at the root, texture and tightness of curl. The final result is an even, supporting underneath curl, with unique curls through the top sections for varied root movement, volume and texture.


Spiral Perm

31 minutesInstructor: Charmaine Piche

Charmaine Piche’s second tutorial in the perming course covers the basics of a spiral perm for long hair. Spiral winds create an even curl from root to point and can be wound using spiral rods, traditional rods, bendies or chopsticks. Spiral perms are generally wound from the nape to front and Charmaine teaches you the key considerations and points that must be considered during this classic perming technique.


Weaving Perm

24 minutesInstructor: Charmaine Piche

In lesson 3 Charmaine Piche shows you how to perform the basics of a weave perm. Weave winds are suitable for fine hair to give volume and texture and can be performed on any length of hair. The volume and texture is created by not perming the weaved out areas of the wind. The final result is loose, multi-textured dishevelled and elegant curls supported by a brickwork perm underneath.


Root Lift Perm

9 minutesInstructor: Charmaine Piche

Charmaine Piche’s fourth perm tutorial covers the basics of a root lift perm. The root lift wind is designed to give volume to flat or fine hair and is performed using large rollers at the root. It is generally used in isolated areas. In this perming video Charmaine works on a disconnected shape to create volume through the upper sections. In the final result, volume has been created to support this short asymmetric haircut with longer disconnected length for added movement and volume.


Hopscotch Perm

32 minutesInstructor: Tracey Sajno

Tracey Sajno’s perm tutorial teaches the basics of a hopscotch perm. The hopscotch wind is used to create a variety of curls or a very textured style. The curls are wound in different directions leaving out fine sections of hair between each roller. These fine sections are then wound over the top of the other rollers in another direction. The final result is a multi-textured loopy finish to enhance the graduation and create movement.
