I have fine, thin (but healthy) collarbone-length hair, but it's stick straight. I love the waves and body that you see on Kate Beckinsale's extensions. I can achieve that look by sleeping in curlers, but how convenient is that?
I've heard there are new perms out there that are less damaging and less long-lasting--meaning they wash out before you get straight roots. I think ISO is a salon brand that's often mentioned.
Has anyone had a perm lately? What was the outcome? I really want a new summer look, but I remember the disaster of a perm that turned into my seventh grade afro... That was the worst style of my life.
