For those that are questioning, celebrity hairstylist Bridget Brager suggests heading to your local pharmacy or beauty store and picking up a set of long tube rollers. You can find them in various sizes and fabrics. (Try, Freestyle Self Grip Rollers, $16.99; priceline.com)
Apply a styling product like Tresemme Perfectly (Un)Done Sea Salt Spray ($7.99; priceline.com) in wet hair and then set your hair in the rollers. "Diffuse it when it’s dry or sleep on it overnight," says Brager.
Then, when you take out the rollers, she says you’ll get to see what a body wave or a loose perm would look like in your hair. Editor tip: Take larger sections of hair to ensure you’re not getting a tight spiral curl, and brush out the style or separate the curls and run your fingers through your hair. "I think for anybody questioning it, they should do it," says Brager. "It only gets better the second or third day of doing that technique with those rods. I’m all for it."
If you like the way your hair looks afterwards, talk to your stylist about setting up an appointment to see if you’re a candidate for the modern perm.
