They always kind of baffled me, but now that I have had some stuck to my hair, I finally have them figured out.
In case you, like me, have ever wondered how exactly they stay there, and what the point of them is in the first place, here is a video to help you.
*one of many videos in the course of our friendship filmed on her tennis court. Others involving movie quoting, Monty Python galloping, Rave Dancing, trampolines, spontaneous singing, and whoknowswhatelse.
One of the many upsides of my cosmetology school- going best friend (who is at a cosmetology convention in NYC as we speak) is that I get a good deal of secondhand information on hair. A lot of it goes right over my head, but I enjoy listening to her share her growing expertise, and I try to retain as much of it as I can.
I now understand foils. And highlighting. I am very intrigued by weaves (the act of sewing more hair onto ones existing hair!). Actually, I mostly just like to SAY "weave"...
And I could talk about afros with her all day long(*naghh*).
Although, no matter how many times she explains perms to me, I may never come to a complete (or even slight) understanding of how they work. I am pretty convinced there are magical forces outside of her control involved and I'm not sure how I feel about that...
