Perm Punishment


It was this photo that unleashed a ton of letters to me on flickr - all from men, telling me their tales of secret perm and curler punishment at the hands of their mommies. Who knew? Poor dears. Guess they knew I'm a sympathetic listener as well as a hair hopper.

Those are just 2 of your MANY qualities, Donna!!!! Isn't it amazing what information the internet has allowed to be shared??? Too bad that these experiences take away from what can be soooooooooooo enjoyable- I wish I had the right hair type to look good with a perm.

I just got my recently-shorn hair retrimmed, and my guy--while a wonderful cutter--cannot style!

I kept telling him, "no, not lesbian--drag queen!" I wound up looking like Davy Jones in The Monkees.

That's awful, Eve....wish you were closer to Nashville for REAL hair styling!!!!!!

Face it, we've all been here. We believe someone who says "Why I'm just as good as a professional!" and sadly, they are not. If they were just as a good as a professional, we would have great hair, and they would be booked solid for the next six weeks.
