I was looking through some old photos a few days ago and I found this picture of Mum when she had her hair Hot Waved for the first time.
She saved her money for ages to afford a perm. She used to say God gave her straight hair but he didn’t give her the face to suit. Back in the day the process to have ones hair permed was called a Hot Wave. The equipment for this process looked like this:
Pretty scary yes? You can read about the process here. Mum was disappointed when the new Cold Wave came in. She said it was not as good. Right to the end of her life she liked to keep her hair permed. She didn’t like the process but she liked the result. Here she is, hair freshly permed and looking happy.
Thinking of you today Mum xxxx
