if there is one thing i like to change up as often as i can, it’s this thing on top of my head called my hair. i mean, you probably know that if you’ve read this blog of mine for even just a minute. and while i’ve put my hair through several chops and styles and even shades (anyone remember when i tried to be blonde by way of platinum a few years back?!), i’d never permed it, though always dreamed of one, and well. it finally happened!
i can’t even count how many times over the years i’ve asked different hair people about perms. they fascinate me and i love them. the tight curls, the loose ones… i think they are all so good and i’ve always secretly wanted one. then, somewhere in the midst of realizing growing out my hair (and particularly my bangs) just wasn’t going to happen for me as i began the process, i mentioned my dream of having a perm to my friend brittany – who is genius with all things hair and also make up – and after a couple of hours hanging out around my kitchen sink last saturday night, here we are today!
i’m still in complete shock over how it only took 60 seconds to do after washing it yesterday morning. and since i am in a chapter of life where 60 seconds is sometimes all i really get for my hair, i am here for it.
hair is so fun to change up every once in a while (or regularly, if you’re me, lol)! and say what you want about perms being dated, i don’t care. i have a feeling this perm will not be my last. it’s been my favorite hair experiment to date! below are a few more photos josh took yesterday of my new do.
pulled out my favorite fun outfit that conrad calls “my pajama outfit”. first time he saw me in it he asked as i was heading towards the door, “mama, are you going to wear your pajamas outside?” when i answered, “oh these aren’t pajamas” he replied, “oh. are they long johns?!” THANK YOU, CONRAD. haha! love me my long john/pajama outfit. ;)
have any of you gotten a perm before? and those already rocking curls- tips or hair products you especially love i should try?
