What was I thinking?

I have fine hair. Very straight fine hair. It hangs there, and if I touch it through the day, which I always do, it ends up even more flat from the oils on my hands. My hairstylist has been trying to get me to try something out for a few years now, and tonight I threw caution to the wind and said "Sure, if you've got time". It's just hair, right? RIGHT?

So tonight I returned to the 80's.

I GOT A PERM!

I'm not about to show you pictures, so don't even ask. Right now I'm resisting the urge to jump in the shower to wash it out or to run a brush through it. The bangs are the worst of all. I could pull out my 8th grade picture and you'd see the same look. Tomorrow... all of the teasing I throw at my guy co-workers is going to come flying right back at me, 10 fold.

OMG! That's all I have to say. Just OMG! I can't wait to see it.

Oh dear. It's probably not as bad as you think it is. I'm sure you look much better today with a perm than you did in 8th grade. Can't wait for the photos.

I have three words, actually four...big barrel curling iron...if it's really that bad, which I am sure it is not.

I think we really need to see these photos. :)

I know you asked me not to, but pretty pleeeeeze?
I'm sure it's not nearly as bad as you make it out to be. If it's really that bad, maybe your hairstylist can help you do something else to it ... or do you not want to go there?

I bet you look awesome! Yeh, I agree about the big barrel curling iron. Especially with the bangs. I have naturally curly hair and when I had bangs, I used to have to straighten them and recurl them. How weird does that sound?

If you show us pics of your perm, I'll show you a pic of me when I was young and had hair that looked like I had a perm. Deal or no deal?

The first week or so a perm is hard to manage. Takes some getting used to, that's for sure.

But after that, once it relaxes a bit, you'll most likely be loving your new do!

Gina said...

ML is right, it just needs to relax a bit. It always starts off looking too tight. Is it a spiral perm? And you know you can't tease us like this!

Ginger said...

Oh please show us!! It can't be that bad can it?

C said...

OMG! The exact same thing happened to me! Except I was in Japan and the hair stylist wouldn't listen to me! I said "cut only" and he friggen permed my hair! Can I tell you how much I cried? LOL! Okay, it wasn't thaaaaaat bad! Except that I had straight bangs and the rest of my head was permed! LOL!

I'm sure you look lovely! So...are you gonna show us some pics? ;)

xoxo
