Carving - an interesting procedure for your hair

Who can do carving?

  • Carving can be carried out both for short hair, and for long, but still some restrictions are available. The minimum length is 7 centimeters (shorter curls will not be curved), and the maximum length is 20-30. Of course, you can try to curl and longer hair, but under their own weight, they can straighten out very soon, which will make the procedure ineffective and useless.
  • Carving is suitable for owners of too greasy hair, as it will help to dry the curls a little.
  • The procedure will improve the appearance of too thin, unruly and thickly hair.
  • Carving is also suitable for the fair sex who have long dreamed of feminine curls and curly hair, but do not decide on a permanent chemical perm.
  • It is necessary to go through the procedure and those who just want to change the image and change the hairstyle.

Can everyone do carving?

Carving has some contraindications:

  • Recently dyed or bleached hair. Even a light perm will damage the curls, and if they have recently gone through the coloring, they can weaken and deteriorate. And yet, if you want to change the color and become the owner of curls, use a sparing paint and do carving no earlier than one or two weeks after the dyeing procedure.
  • Hard hair. First, they may simply not succumb. Secondly, such curls can become even more rigid and similar to straw.
  • Too dry hair. Carving will dry them even more.
  • Lifeless, weakened, damaged hair.The procedure will exacerbate the situation and ruin the curls permanently.

  • Small carving is carried out using small-sized curlers. The result is cute little curls. This option is suitable for a fairly long, thin, but not very soft and fluffy hair.
  • A large carving will help you get soft, feminine and slightly curly curls. Large curlers are used. This option will allow you to make more voluminous and beautiful long and straight, but rather stiff hair (on soft, a large perm may not be visible).
  • Medium carving is done with the help of medium-sized curlers. Curls are quite voluminous and pronounced, but not too small. This procedure is suitable for almost everyone.
  • Textured or combined carving involves the use of curlers of different sizes. The procedure will help to create an interesting hairstyle.

Depending on the shape and location of the locks, the following types are distinguished:

  • Traditional carving involves the use of conventional classic curlers.As a result, the waves are soft, and the curls are feminine.
  • Vertical carving. When carrying out such a procedure, vertical curlers are used, for example, spiral-shaped or soft. Curls are uniform, strongly curly and pronounced. According to customers, this perm lasts longer.
  • If you want to get the volume or add waviness only in a certain part (for example, at the roots or at the tips), then choose a local carving. Hair is wound not completely, but only in the right places.
