A digital perm is the latest fad in women’s hairstyles. To achieve a digi-perm, temperature controlled rods are usually used to thermally recondition the hair. The trend-setting hairdos are generally characterized by a wavy or playfully bouncy hair. Digital perms are very easy to style because you can achieve wavy curls simply by twisting your hair with your fingers when it is dry. Owing to the fact that they look best on dry hair, you can maintain your hairstyle throughout the day. Herein are 30 superbly executed digital perm hairstyles.

Compared to the popular 80s perm styling technique, digital perms give the hair more natural-looking texture and softer curls.

Ideally, the look appears more glamorous when applied on medium-length to long hair especially since you can combine straight and wavy locks to create textural contrast.
