Get Wavy Beach Hair with an American Wave Perm at Gavin Scott in Stow, Ohio

Wavy beach hair is all the rage right now from gentle beach waves to full-blown curls.  Master stylist Nick Arrojo created The American Wave to give people natural-looking waves and curl patterns. A limited number of salons are trained and certified to offer the American Wave perm.

We are lucky in the Akron, Ohio area to have a certified American Wave salon. Gavin Scott in Stow, Ohio can give you wavy beach hair this Summer with the American Wave perm and traditional perms. I received a perm to facilitate this post. Voted #1 for Best Women’s Hair Salon by Akron Life Magazine, you know you can trust the professionals at Gavin Scott for all your salon needs.

American Wave Perm

The American Wave perm will give you a natural looking, wavy beach hair look for 3 months. It is THIO and ammonia-free, using ionic technology.  This process is gentle on your hair without drying out or damaging your hair. You can even have the perm with many permanent and semi-permanent hair colors – consult your salon.

The rods used are soft, the technique gives you the straight and wavy textures to create the wavy beach hair look, adding volume and texture to all hair types. Check out before and after American Wave pictures by Gavin Scott.

Gavin Scott Review

My hair is naturally poker straight but I like it curly! I usually go from one extreme to the other – super straight or super curly hair. I was ready to update my look with the popular wavy beach hair look, so I turned to Gavin Scott in Stow.

I heard so many positive comments from friends and from our facebook page. I had to see what everyone was talking about!The Gavin Scott Salon is located on the border of Stow and Hudson, Ohio. It is a beautiful, full service salon.

The staff is very welcoming, friendly, and professional. I had a very pleasant experience at Gavin Scott from the moment I arrived. Upon arrival, I was greeted and offered a cold soda, wine, or water and relaxed in the comfy waiting area. Below is my before picture with my poker straight hair.


Shannon and I hit it off right away since we are both moms and both have red hair. 🙂 We decided to go with a traditional perm instead of an American Wave for the outcome I wanted. I have had traditional perms for 20+ years, so I felt comfortable with this option. Shannon alternated the wraps in various methods and a couple different sizes to give me the wavy beach hair look that looks natural and not a “permed” look.


In just about 2-1/2 hours, I had lovely wavy beach hair! I have never had such a natural looking wave to my hair! What do you think?

Although my hair is naturally very straight, I blow-dry and curl my hair about 80% of the time – even in the Summer. I like to have volume and bounce to my hair. Now that I have a perm, it saves me so much time. I love the freedom it gives me in the Summer to wash my hair and go! My hair is so easy to take care of now and even looks good right out of the shower or pool! I can’t believe how much time I save having a perm – not to mention how nice it is to not use a hot hair-dryer and hot curling iron during our 90 degree weather!

While I was at Gavin Scott, another lady was getting the American Wave perm. It looked gorgeous on her and made her look younger too. Gavin Scott has seen a lot of business this Summer for the American Wave since they are one of the only salons in the area that is certified.

Whether you want to get the new Nick Arrojo American Wave perm or a traditional perm, the professionals at Gavin Scott can give you the highly in-style wavy beach hair you desire. If you color your hair, the American Wave option is your best bet. Talk to the professionals at Gavin Scott to find the best solution for your hair.
