Today, I got a perm in an attempt to prove to my family that I'd been doing well with my life since I last saw them almost a year ago. I ended up going over for dinner looking like Bozo the Clown thanks to my idiot stylist, and my brothers wouldn't stop mocking me about it. FML

If you want to show success rent a Ferrari, pretend it's your, fill your wallet up with bills and offer to take your family out for coffee or ice cream and make sure they see your money and maybe hire a fake good looking boyfriend!

Simple right? 

of all things that tell everybody "hi, im important!" you got a perm!? you could just put some fucking pictures in your foyer and they think you're a millionare.


9- basic going rate for a perm is $50. If she wanted to show she can take care of herself I'm sure there were better ways to show that with under $100
Sucks for op but I don't feel too bad for her... Who the heck gets a perm anymore that isn't over the age of 50??

As a stylist I can say there are more people than you think who get perms including my sister in law who is under 30 but depending on the salon they can cost upwards of $200 for a long hair spiral perm be prepared to spend close to $500. Hint we charge so much cause we hate them. Almost every client i've gotten in my chair that wants a perm I discourage because a lot of the time the look they want can be achieved with just styling it, perms are frizzy, and crazy, and always require styling so you aren't saving time, and growing it out is a bitch.


I'd do anything for straight hair, I have a white-girl fro unless I straighten it. OP is crazy to think a hair style would make her look more or less successful, it's irrelevant.

So her brothers which are assumedly either slightly older or slightly younger than OP, will age and decay at an accelerated pace because they teased their sister for her dumb hair?

A perm means you are doing well....? What century are we in? Perms are very outdated OP. especially for someone your age (which I am assuming you are young). Tight curl perms are for old ladies. Seriously. Just get high lights and call it good.

73, while true this person is also correct. Perms were in fashion over a decade ago, which would technically make it 'last century'. Either way it's ridiculous for OP to expect a PERM to make her look successful. Maybe she should have just gone in for a styling like anyone else would for a big occasion. That's like going to the hairdresser and instead of asking for a trim asking for the Sinead O'Connor- the intentions seemed good but the thought process, not so much.

That's right 'cause

Unemployed, single, fat loser with nice hair >> Unemployed, single, fat loser with clown hair.

Good thing I took that course in Social Calculus.
