American Wave is a revolutionary salon service created by Nick Arrojo and his senior texture specialists. In order to practice this service, you must be certified in American Wave tools, products, and techniques by ARROJO.
Using an innovative, ionic waving lotion the product penetrates the hair shaft gently, without roughing the cuticle or making it swell, which is what old-fashioned perms used to do. The ionic lotion reduces stress on tresses, creates a smoother cuticle, and makes hair fabulous and full. Instead of setting hair with hard tools, we combine soft tools with editorial techniques, so looks are fashion-forward, not frumpy.
With American Wave we can offer the permanent creation of wave and curl, volume and fullness; we can make hair more or less wavy or curly; we can use it to control frizz, add texture, movement or volume. It’s long-lasting, with loose waves only needing a redo every three months. And instead of chemical perms, it smells of eucalyptus.
Thio and Ammonia free, it is a way to create soft, natural-looking waves and curl patterns for today’s style-conscious clients.
