Sorry, but I'm really excited about this...
Last Saturday, I got a "bonused" secret shop... It's a shop that needed to get done LONG time ago, so they offered a BONUS to just get it done.
I hopped at the chance, and got my bangs cut :)
So I then of course, had to experiment with Pigtails
Then the next day, I decided to play with my makeup too!
And at that point, I was just ECSTATIC! I was SOOO happy, and I felt soo pretty. But I wasn't feeling "small" even with my Paci and Pigtails...
So I decided that I wanted CURLS!
So I put my hair up in a ponytail the next day, with a pretty bow, and hopped on the bus to start my journey up to "North Jersey" to visit a friend :)
Once there, we spent ALL DAY and couldn't find ANYONE that was
C) Had time to do it
... wrap and process a spiral perm!
I spent 4+ hours getting there, and 5+ hours getting home! We had a GREAT time enjoying each others company, but it was REALLY frustrating.
So the next day, I decided to make a call, I called my local Regis Salon (in the mall, I used to work for a Regis owned Salon). I talked on the phone to Jen, whom was awesome, and she said she had time, and would do it. I told her I was "running some errands" and wanted to know when would be "too late" and she asked me to get there by 6pm...
So I got ready once again, and hopped another bus for the couple mile bus ride....
BTW, during that bus-ride, I got one of the BEST compliments I could have, when a girl got on at the hospital, and asked "Can I sit with you? I REALLY don't want to sit with a guy, I don't trust them" :) And that Just made me SUPER happy!
Once at the mall, I checked in at the salon, and then went to do some browsing, as I showed up early, and Jen said it would be a bit till she could take me...
So I wandered over to the Cellphone Accessories Kiosk, where I got another compliment... Kinda...
See I was browsing, and this woman walks up behind me, and then to the other side.
The gentleman tending this booth (and two others nearby) wandered over, and asks "Can I help you?" the woman starts talking instantly, and he says "excuse me" to her, and then prompts me for my question and assists me first, before returning to her.
Yeah it's common courtesy, but these days, courtesy isn't common.
So I head back to the salon, and sit down for a few... When Jen is ready I sit in her chair, and we discuss what I want, and what she can do. She then takes me to get my hair washed, and back to her chair.
She gathers her tools (perm rods, papers, etc) and begins to do a vertical spiral wrap on standard perm rods. IT takes a bit for her to wrap my hair, but not that long because my hair is only shoulder length, and is very fine, and thinning.
Once she's finished with the wrapping she puts the gel on to protect my bangs and around the rest of the hairline, and then wraps the cotton around my head, and gets the perm solution.
She liberally applies 2 bottles, then puts the cap on my head. and leaves me to "bake" or process :)
So once the processing is done, she takes me back to the wash basin, and rinses, twice, then nuetrilizes, and rinses two more times. I get the standard lecture about not washing my hair for at least 48 hours preferably 72 after the perm (I lasted about 60 hours).
She takes me back to her chair, uses a diffuser to blow dry it, adds a bit of product, and I end up with These curls!
But my friends, we didn't stop there! -GiGgLeS-
Because the MOMENT I got home, I got into a VERY PRETTY dress that is on loan to me... And I did one of the BIGGEST NONO's I could with a fresh perm...
No I didn't wash my hair!.... I put them in PIGTAILS
Now I shall state, that I believe I am the MOST ADORABUBBLE little girl on the PLANET! And that all governments should bow before me and my Dolly Army!
-HuGgLeS- and I hope you enjoyed my little Photo Blog/Adventure!
