When the word “perm” is used, meaning permanent wave, many women associate it with the tight fuzzy hair grandma had or big tight curl that was in the 80’s or 90’s. Perms became a taboo in the late 90’s thanks to the Jennifer Aniston’s straight hair. Everyone wanted the straight hair again, kind of what happened in the 60’s with the ironing boards for hair. Perms then where only for little old ladies and became a taboo for the rest of the crowd. Even in the hair industry it has become a dying art. Many who started beauty school in the late 90’s or early 2000’s where taught the basics in perming but that is where their education ended.
Well perms aren’t for little old lady’s or old rocker chicks from the 80’s anymore.
