I am very excited.

Any tips, products I should buy?

(You are not allowed to say don't go)

Ooohhhh - how? Links to similar please.

I need pics of how this is going to look.

I just hear perm and think of kevin keegan cos thats how I looked back in my perm days.

Apparently these days you can have your hair permed and not look like a poodle, however I've yet to see evidence.

SoYouSay Tue 21-Jan-14 14:58:28

I love this

SoYouSay Tue 21-Jan-14 14:58:50

But not this!!

HoneyDragon Tue 21-Jan-14 15:00:07

This is kind of what I'm aiming for, like sosays pic

HoneyDragon Tue 21-Jan-14 15:01:26

This is me, my hair is wavy, but I want proper defined curls.

A perm?

How long is your hair?

HoneyDragon Tue 21-Jan-14 15:03:13

Just above my bra strap, longer if straightened.

HoneyDragon Tue 21-Jan-14 15:04:01

(Except the bits I set fire to before Xmas, but they are long enough now)

gaggiagirl Tue 21-Jan-14 15:04:32

woops cross post.

Oh I see what you mean now. It will be awesome!

Mishmashfamily Tue 21-Jan-14 15:04:47

Oh oh I would love to have my hair permed but it's too processed already!

I let my ex SIL do it once and she fish hooked the rollers . It was fuckng awful . I was hysterically crying laughing / crying looking at it in the mirror as it was beyond fucked up. Had to spend £140 fixing it!

Bitch!

Mishmashfamily Tue 21-Jan-14 15:05:45

Ooh it will look lovely honey

SoYouSay Tue 21-Jan-14 15:06:30

Oohh - very jealous. A question though. What will happen to your fringe - will it be permed, stay straight or something else? I have a fringe but don't see how it would work with a perm.

Labootin Tue 21-Jan-14 15:07:27

Do you still have a fringe ?

I worry about curly fringes tbh

ThatFuckerFancyPuffin Tue 21-Jan-14 15:07:46

Very very envy

Labootin Tue 21-Jan-14 15:08:00

X post on fringe

CuttedUpPear Tue 21-Jan-14 15:08:35

Will you post another pic after you've had it done HoneyDragon?

I'm thinking about getting a perm too but am worried about the possible Kevin Keegan outcome, and aftercare too.

and am a bit excited to see a pic of a poster whose name I recognise

Mishmashfamily Tue 21-Jan-14 15:09:03

I wanted this

Mishmashfamily Tue 21-Jan-14 15:09:20

But got this

SoYouSay Tue 21-Jan-14 15:12:17

smile Mishmash

I appear to have opened a thread from 1985.

TurnipSlippers Tue 21-Jan-14 15:15:21

I'm SO jealous. I have wanted a perm for years but I am too scared. I have long, straight, quite fine hair that gets greasy quickly. I suspect I am probably the worst candidate for a perm...please post a pic when it's done!

HazleNutt Tue 21-Jan-14 15:36:38

I had a perm like you want, but it was the so-called digital perm, bloody expensive and unfortunately didn't last long. Was lovely while it did, though.
