Guys, You're Screwed.

<--I got one of these yesterday. Yep, a perm.

Don't freak out! After the 70s and 80s, "perm" practically became a four-letter word, I know. But, for chicks who have completely straight hair (like yours truly), it puts a little bounce in our steps. For an entire DECADE (literally--just ask my sisters), I have had a bob. I sorta got tired of it. So, I devoted about 9 months growing out my hair so that it would be long enough to put a loose perm in it. This was a little over a year ago when my hair was long enough, and this is the third perm I've had.

I know that the guys aren't going to understand this, but getting a haircut or changing our hairstyle in any way, shape, or form is traumatic for chicks. Whenever the participants in makeover shows have to get a haircut, they almost always express some type of apprehension about "taking too much off." And, this is when the makeover shows bring in world-renown professionals. Can you imagine what we ordinary girls are thinking when we go into a salon? This is why we procrastinate. Mr. Nonny Nu always has to "remind" me to get a haircut. But, what he doesn't know is that I've probably been thinking about going to get a haircut for days ahead of his reminder.

It wasn't too bad this time because it wasn't the first time I got it permed. But, when my hair was finally long enough for it, I was still iffy. Can you believe that?! I spent 9 months--that's a whole baby!--working toward this goal, and on the eve of having it realized, I was scared to take the plunge. Crazy, right? But, it happened. And, it happens every single time I get ready to go in for a haircut or a "styling." In fact, I feel like this right now because I can't wash my hair for 48 hours, which means I can't "make it the way I like it" until Sunday night after I wash it.

And, it's not just before the haircut that this freak out happens. It ALWAYS occurs after the haircut, no matter how much it cost or how expert the stylist supposedly is. This lady said it best: "we are not happy until we put our own spin on it!" SO TRUE.

Furthermore, husbands and other types of significant others, I'm sorry to tell you but you guys are damned if you do and damned if you don't. If you give constructive criticism, you have just substantiated our worst nightmare--we were right in believing that the haircut is horrid. If you say it looks nice, we know that you are just trying to avoid the horrid haircut. But, the worst, and I mean the very worst, is if you don't say anything at all. Okay, then, we know that
the haircut totally sucks ass and it's so bad that you guys can't even get yourselves to lie about it. So, choose your poison, guys.

Dude, I go to this fabulous hair dresser who charges half of what you'd pay in a high profile Salon. He also has great cooking advice!

I remember the 80's when ever body and their mother got a "perm". I, regretably, also had a "perm". During those "perm" days, I looked like something that just walked out of the grill.

man from u.n.c.l.e., I also frequent the neighborhood hair dresser. No there is no bulk purchase. I usually order #1 and emphasize "no I don't need a washor or style".
I usually walk out of there spending about 11$.

When I visited the Nu resident last summer. NNN treated me to a hair cut. They almost had to use a defibrillator on me when I saw how much NNN paid the hair dresser.

Nonny Nu said...

OMG, that was a disaster. They put a woman's haircut on your head, and it didn't look right. I almost died laughing. It was so inappropriate...

stillman said...

you look great with a loose perm! Not at all like Joanie from happy days. :)

Nonny Nu said...

Awwww...thanks, Stillman. I can't wait for 4pm today--I'm washing my hair!

Okay, so I washed my hair and have fixed it so that it is just the way I like it. What do you think?
