Update: I’m loving my perm so far. The soft curls are pretty and not over the top. The only problem is that I never know how to style it the next day when I wake up and it’s a mess. I usually just split it into two, spray water on it, twist them outwards and let it dry. Yet the result is still very messy and dull. I wonder if I’m suppose to add some products like hair serum in my morning routine to add some shine.
After much mishaps and reschedulings, I finally made it to my hair stylist yesterday. My shapeless strands badly needed some attention, I’ve been tying it up for weeks now to avoid confronting it!
Having “rested” my hair for more than 1.5 years, I’ve finally convinced myself that my split ends are largely due to the minerals in the Chicago waters and there’s not much I can do about it, no matter how many hair masks I do. So I treated myself to a perm. Ever since I got my first perm the summer before I studied abroad in Paris, I’ve loved my hair curly. My long face just need some curls to widen it out.
This time my hairstylist Roy gave me softer curls that curl outwards instead of inwards. I’m not sure what difference that makes, but I’ll let you know once I’ve washed my hair. I’ve always believed that you can only judge a haircut after you’ve lived with it for a week. So far I’m pretty happy with it, even though I could’ve gone to Japan with the amount of time it took me to get it done! I spent a long time flicking through magazines until they all started to look the same and talking to my hairstylist about his recent trip to the States. I wonder what everyone else does when they have 4 hours to kill at the salon.
I wanna see! Yeah I go mad after a few hours at the hair salon. I can only sit still for so long while people do stuff to my hair.
I agree with you on the waiting one week to judge the haircut rule. Everything always looks great when you walk out of the salon…but when you have to wash and style your own hair…totally different story. ^^
That reminds me…it’s about time I get my own hair fixed up! Well, good luck with yours!
curls that curl outwards will open up your face. like the effect farrah fawcett’s signature hair, but softer and more modern with your curls.
Happy New Year!!! 🙂 oooh, I want to see this perm. I did one a few years ago but have since gone back to straight.
