late Middle English: from Latin permanent- 'remaining to the end' (perhaps via Old French), from per- 'through' + manere 'remain'.

More
  • Permanent is from Latin permanent- ‘remaining to the end’ from per- ‘through’ and manere ‘remain’. The abbreviation perm in hairdressing dates from the 1920s, a shortening of ‘permanent wave’, a process that had been introduced only a few years earlier. Before that people had to curl their hair with hot tongs, or use the late 19th century marcel wave, named after François Marcel Grateau ( 1852–1936), the French hairdresser who invented the method.
