Her hair is super cute.  I’ve wanted to do something like that with my hair forever!  Your hair dresser should know whether it’ll work on your hair or not.  If you get it done, post pics!

@SweetRose2011:  Whenever I’ve had perms, they didn’t do a trial run.  Personally, I looked ridiculous with really really curly hair.

Be careful. I’m black and I don’t know anything about perms for Caucasians, but I’ve seen on tv they are scary.LOL I would say get someone to braid it then let it loose, but it won’t stand up…maybe hot rollers and tease it?

JUSTsuggestions.LOL Good luck! Maybe someone else has ideas.

Every hair stylist I’ve known has said perms destroy your hair and are just so bad…. but I’ve had one. My hair holds a curl really, really well. I think that a look like that would need a perm and layering. I’ve never heard of a trial run for a perm; it’s a pretty serious chemical process, so you can’t really try it out first. You could have someone try using a curling iron first to see how it will look maybe? Your friend’s hair is super cute, though.

@SweetRose2011:  HOLY CRAP!  I’m not fond of that style either!  My grandmother gave me a perm when I was in the 9th grade and it turned out loosely curled, like the first picture you posted.  There are different sized rollers and chemicals they use to create different sized curls (I think…though, don’t quote me on it…) so if you take in some pictures, they should be able to perm it the way you want it.  If they give you the curls that are in that youtube video without you asking, they should lose their cos. liscence!

Wowza…I can’t get over the curl in that blonde girl’s hair…

one of my close friends, who is also a hairdresser, has done this in the past and is about to do it again. It looks fantastic and as long as you follow your hairdressers instructions for taking care of it, it should be fine! or at least equally as bad as colouring and straightening your hair regularly…
