If you are anything like me, then when you hear the word perm you immediately think…. eek, poodle curls. I also think about that scene in Legally Blonde where Elle convicts the daughter of murder due to the fact she claimed to be in the shower after having a perm where she says:
Anyway, so I have been hearing that ‘the perm’ is back in fashion…. no, not the corkscrew curl one but more the Hollywood curls or the Sienna-Miller-esque loose waves. I am really interested to hear from anyone who has had a perm, either now or in the past as to what your experience was like (good or bad)… especially anyone who has had the Schwarzkopf Professional Natural Styling Hydrowave that apparently can create all sorts of waves/curls/root volume without making hair crispy or frizzy.
I am basically asking because I would LOVE to have the sort of natural ‘boho’ type of wave in my very straight, very blah, hair and have been musing as to whether this might be an option (salt sprays and curling tongs just don’t really do it for me). Obviously this sort of treatment will cause damage, but as someone who already highlights my hair then I am no stranger to this… I just want to know, is it worth it?
So what are the views? Have your or a friend ever had a perm – horror stories or happy endings all welcome! Please comment below!
