How many perm rods do I need? What size should they be?

There are two things to keep in mind before deciding on the size and how many curls to curl: how long is your hair and what type of curl do you want.

  • To get a curl with well defined tight curls, you will need:

If you have long, waist-length hair, you will need about 46 small curlers.

If your hair is short or medium long, you will need 24 to 36 curlers.

  • To curl your hair with looser, less defined curls, you will need:

If you have long hair, you should need about 32 medium curlers.

If you have short or medium hair, you will need 24 to 36 medium curlers.

  • For a fixation with loose, ocean waves you will need:

Depending on the amount of hair you have, you should use between 15 and 27 large curlers.

But, in the world of hair care, what has come back is curling. That’s right, it’s the same shirt that famous Hollywood stars and housewives, and anyone at the forefront of the latest trends, wore in the ’80s .

The curling machine is back, it’s new and improved, because the chemicals used to curl are much softer . But still today, it is important to decide which hairstyle you are looking for.

And you’ll only get the hairstyle you’re looking for if you choose the right size curling stick for the curly hairstyle you hope to get.

 Because the hairstyle is tight, like a corkscrew, not like the wave style, one of the most sought after styles. 

That’s why the size of the curling stick matters, as well as the length of your hair, as each of your locks will have the curl shape you’re looking for, depending on how many times you roll it around the stick. curling. .

less permutation bars

So if you’re ready to get rid of that straight hair, or you get tired of using a curling iron every day, persevere as I will tell you:

  • How many curlers you should use is based on the length of your hair and the style you want
  • A table of permutation bars that differ in color according to their size

Fixed bar is back and today you will determine which style you are looking for by specifying the fixed bar size you will use.

How many curlers you should use depends on the length of your hair and the style you want.

In general, hair stylists divide hair length into three categories:

  • Short
  • Medium
  • Long

So those are the parameters that we will be using today to determine the fixed bar size you need to do the curl and get the curled shape you were looking for.

Now, how do you know which curly hairstyle will best suit your style?

Yes, you can test it through trial and error.

What do you need to do to do this experiment?

  • All you need is a curling iron and if it has interchangeable buckets to adjust the size of the curls, the better.
  • Once you have a curling iron in hand, separate the hair into small sections and curl it.
  • Try out different curls and take a close look at yourself in the mirror.

Which hairstyle do you like the most?

You can get the same style in your curling machine if you choose the right stick size.

Let’s start with short hair that is trending these days thanks to pixie and bobs.

  • Implant sizes for medium and short hair.

What curls would you like for your moderately short or long hair? A tight and clear curl?

The smaller and tighter the curls you want, the smaller the curling bar, and as such, the more of them you will need.

 In this case, you will need between 24 and 36 permutation bars.  

It is very important that you be very neat about where you are separating your hair so that it is then curled correctly onto the curling stick, starting at the ends.

Are you looking for more voluminous and more natural curls?

I personally love these curls because they help your hair move more naturally and look younger, too, which is always a good thing.

 In that case you will need medium sized fixed rods, about 18-24 of them. 

Now, what if you let your hair grow long, like waist-length?

You’ll have more options for the curls you want, as you can range from curls tight to wild waves.

  • Size implants for long hair.

Long hair is fun and versatile, so you can vary from fun little snails to admired ocean waves.

  • If what you want is a curl, you will need about 46 curlers for your long hair.
  • If you’re looking for looser curls, but with some definitions you’ll need 32 medium-sized curlers.
  • If you are dying from the waves at the beach , you should choose larger fixed bars, about 15-27 of them.

Did you know that in colorimetry, there is a common hair color grading system that is the same all over the world, from Japan to Nigeria to countries in Latin America?

All countries use the same color to classify permutation bars based on their size. Keep reading and you will learn to choose exactly what you need when it’s time to buy them.

Perm rod palette by size

Like I said before, the curlers are color-distinguished and the smaller they are, the tighter your curl will be.

Smaller curls create tighter curls and include:

  • Red curls: These are the smallest rods that create the tightest curls. You use them for hair less than 3 inches long.
  • Blue curling stick: This is slightly larger than the red one and curls less than 4 inches of hair.
  • Pink curlers: This is for tight curls on hair longer than 4 inches.

You use medium and large curls on hair longer than 4 inches for looser curls styles.

  • Gray curlers: For hair longer than 4 inches
  • Purple curl: Used to create loose curls in hair that is longer than shoulder length


In order to choose the right size curling stick for your curlers, it is important to keep in mind the type of curling you are trying to do and the length of your hair.

Before curling, use a curling iron to compare different curls styles and to better evaluate which one best suits your face and style.

Because the permutation is back. Long live perms!
