Say Yes to a Perm

Perm Over at xojane.com, my latest story is up — Do This Don't: Get a Perm.

It was this post by Fleur that actually gave me the motivation to go through with it. I'm quite happy I did, though it does require work to maintain. That said, it requires far less work to set my hair and get it to the way I want it! I've actually skipped ponytails for the entire week.

  1. LOL!! I’ve been contemplating getting a perm, but there’s not many places around here that offer them anymore. I may have to go to one of those Lil’ Ol’ Lady shops to get my hair ‘set’. :^)

  2. It’s amazing!!!!!!

  3. I LOVE it Mena! The curls are fantastic!!! I really love curls–they work with every vintage style and it’s fun to style!

  4. Congrats on your perm! I honestly never thought a perm would look that good. And your story made me laugh. :)
    Here in NZ- this ‘get a perm’ ad was a bit of a viral phenomenon….

  5. I thought something looked different in your pictures this week….
    i have spent my whole life fighting my natural curls, so i never understood why people do this, but… you look adorable. it suits you.
    and curly haired people are not more confident.

  6. I have thought about it too! I wore the stick straight flat ironed look for years but now want curls! I found some great old vintage rollers but it’s so much work!
