Hi. I'm Amelia and I'm here to talk to you about perm sectioning. The importance of perm sectioning is it's what going to give you your basic form for style. So if you're used to the traditional perm section where you section this front before the ear off and then you do the two rows down the back and the one row across the top, it's not really going to give you a modern effect. And that's one of the reasons why I think people have moved away from perms because the perm sectioning really hasn't come in to the 21st century yet. So what I like to do is I like to do condensed wraps. And that's basically were, you just grab a section of hair; let's say want this girls hair to curl forward, and you don't want a whole lot of curl, you just want a nice wave; well,you're going to take a fairly large section and you're going to wrap that. And depending on how you wrap is depending on how much curl you're going to get. So if you're going to wrap this hair and bend it over on top of its self, which is on base, this being the base, you're going to roll that down on base. This is all basic beauty school stuff. Then that's going to give you the maximum amount of curl. If you're slightly off base, which again, this is the base and you're curling forward, then that's going to give you a lazier curl. One that droops more. One of my favorite perming techniques is the pony tail technique where you actually pony tail the hair, and you just perm the end. And what that's going to do is that's going to give you that really nice soft wave that you see with a lot of the models. What Jessica Simpson wears. Most of them usually use hot rollers for that look but if you want it on a more permanent basis or even if you wanted it so that you would get that hold if you did use the rollers, you would do something like this. And it just gives a really nice modern look. You would just pony tail the sections; and just remember, that the further that hair goes, the straighter it's going to be. So the more the curl is going to be at the other end. So you want to make sure that you place your pony tails where they want the most volume. So I usually do a pony tail at the crown, pony tail on the side and a pony tail, my pony tails usually go around the crown area. So just whenever you're sectioning for perms, you really just want to make sure that you take in to consideration the persons' style.
