At Virgo, we use Oway’s Owave Hair Perm technology which uses gentle, high quality ingredients to deliver custom curl and wave patterns that match your unique look and lifestyle. With the health of your hair in mind, we’ll take you from flat and lifeless strands to voluminous and textural locks. What you are left with is hair full of life and endless styling versatility!

Like every ritual developed by Oway, the hair perm experience begins with an analysis of the scalp and lengths, to enable us to determine which fluid is best to use;  OWAVE hair perm technology respects the hair fibre and calls for different concentrations and formulations depending on your scalp and hair type. OWAVE is based on complete texture customization, just like the results that can be achieved - all vary depending on the technique used.

Fear of Hair Perm sessions are now a thing of the past making way for a treatment rich in beneficial active ingredients and organic nourishment. Thanks to the pool of biodynamic Helichrysum hydrolat, organic Blackthorn extract and ethical Chia and Flax extracts, the hair fibre is protected and elasticised during the treatment, with long-lasting and resistant hair results.

Just got home from my appointment with Mateo and I honestly couldn’t be happier with the results.I came in for a cut/healthy perm ( I have super straight hair with bangs and this was my first perm) so I was a bit nervous. But, he new exactly what I wanted and my hair came out looking exactly like the inspiration photos I sent him. My curls look natural and my hair feels just as healthy as when I came in! Overall, probably the best hair experience I’ve ever had. Basically, book your appointment!

Can you Perm Highlighted/Balayaged hair?

Due to the more gentle Perm Formula we use, we are able to perm Slightly Highlighted/Balayaged hair. Keep in mind that for Slightly Highlighted/Balayged hair, we have a Mandatory add on in our Booking Menu called “Highlight/Subtle Balayage protection booster”. This service will add an additional layer of protection that subtly lightened hair will need in order to stay healthy during the Perming Process.

That said, if the hair is over 40% lightened, we do not recommend perming until the heavier highlighted parts are grown out and cut off. Heavily highlighted hair is extremely compromised and has a hard time holding on to the curl. This may result in a highly unpredictable perm where parts of the hair may take the curl and others don’t. As we want you to have the best results possible, again, we do not recommend perming heavily highlighted hair.

How do I care for my Hair Perm?

Changing your hair's texture will require a slight change in your haircare. As a result of the change in your texture, you will need to make sure that your hair stays hydrated. We Recommend the Davines Love Curl Enhancing Shampoo and Conditioner

Do perms work for all hair types?

Yes! Depending on your goals, hair perms are a great way to improve or add texture for all hair types, though those with straight or wavy hair textures have the most to gain!  

 

What is the difference between Modern, Healthy Hair Perms and hair perms from the 80's?

Modern, Healthy hair perms are much softer on your hair than perms of the past. While women were looking for bold, voluminous shapes in the 80's, today, most women are looking for more natural results and our modern hair perm is formulated with that in mind. At Virgo, we customize customers rod set to match your hair goals and stay completely in control of the process. This allows us to not only create a great result in-salon but create looks that grow out gracefully. 

How long will my hair perm last? 

Your healthy perm can last up to 6 months with proper care but will grow out naturally. Using the right products will help to extend the life of your treatment!
