Do Men Still Get Perms?
Rewind back to last year. Before my son's senior year in high school, Aiven asked me something that I thought I would never hear from him. He wanted to get a perm. What? My son? I thought we shared the same belief that perms are not for us. My dad had one in the 70's but I thought that was left in the 70's. As I started to panic, I realized I had to let him learn the hard way. For whatever reason, Aiven did not end up getting one. Phew!
While I have probably offended all the men that currently have a perm, let me explain myself further. I currently have an advanced widows peak. Oh okay, who am I kidding I am pretty much bald. At this point I would take a perm over what I have. Well, maybe not. My point is that I'm not one to judge when it comes to hair. And I'm not. Just sharing my personal opinion.
I have done some digging to further open my eyes when it comes to perms for men. Not only is the style apparently back, which I never thought it was here to begin with, there are a ton of different perm hairstyles. That blew my mind. I thought the hair stylist just slapped a perm up there and said enjoy your day fine sir. Per usual, boy was I wrong. Although a loose curls perm sounds enticing, I think I'm going to sit this hairstyle out and keep convincing myself that I have an advanced widows peak.
