Peer Pressure

The entire drive to the salon, I fretted and squirmed. Typical Libra style. Squashed by peer pressure, I relented and didn't get a perm.

In my defense, as you can see here, I really don't have big 80s hair. I get an extremely light body wave. Just enough to make my extremely straight, thick hair manageable. Only my girlfriend and a couple of other people even know that it's permed. Most people think I have naturally wavy hair.

I went with a shorter razor cut, a tad of reddish color plus some blonde highlights.




It's so dramatically different that no one even noticed.

Hair cut and high lights are cool but my eyes are glued to your beautiful blues.

I usually recognize people by their hair. If someone I know shaves their head or gets a perm I'll walk right by not having clue who they are.

Melissa said...

Lovely cut and color! There seems to be plenty of body even without a body wave.

Anndi said...

Beautiful! I need a change of style... *sigh*

Anna said...

It's beautiful!

After I buzzed my hair a year ago, I decided to let it grow long again...and now it's CURLY. Not wavy; like it used to be, but absolute 80's hair corkscrew curls. I waffle between loving it and hating it....but I've learned that curly or straight, I still can't do a damn thing with it in the morning.

Ooh, very nice! The last time I went for a body wave? Poodle head. Did I already post this? It's worth repeating so that "I" never ever ever perm my hair again. But yours? Mahvahlous!

buffalodick said...

Awake In Rochester said...
