Remember Spiral Perms?
I found this old picture from college while looking through my boxes last weekend. Those were the days.(Over 15 years ago! I can't believe it.) I paid over $100 plus tip for that spiral perm. I can clearly remember the agony and pain of those rollers, how it ripped out my hair from the weight of them and the toxic smell of perm solution. Not to mention over 3 hours of my life I will never get back. I would never spend that kind of money on my hair today.
Let's see, I had one perm in high school and one in college. If I invested that $100 for 20 years and the other $100 for 15 years at 10% minus taxes I would have $879! Oh well, live and learn.
Now I just hack my hair off with scissors and hope for the best. My $3 hot rollers from the thrift store do a pretty good job if I want curls.
I had to take this picture to work to scan it. I was thinking about buying a scanner someday to scan in all of my old pictures. I mentioned this to a friend and he said I could borrow his scanner. He used it to scan in all of his old family photos. I have a DVD/VCR recorder that I know he would like to borrow so this is the perfect swap!
