The trend responsible for some of the 80s most memorable barnets is back. But fear not the modern look is less Deirdre Barlow, more a tumble of soft waves
It is a truth universally acknowledged that everybody wants the opposite of the hair they have. Those with bountiful curls are wont to straighten them to a crisp, while the rest of us crimp and twist, chasing waves via diffusers, tongs, curl creams and, lately, perms.
Thats right, the trend responsible for some of the 80s most memorable dos is making a return to the terror of many who are still scarred by their own perm-disasters. But fear not: the perm, which for many still conjures images of Neighbours-era Kylie Minogue, or Coronation Streets Deirdre Barlow,has had an update. Long gone are the tight, brittle waves, as seen on peak-perm Barbra Streisand; the modern perm or the new-wave perm, as it has been dubbed is an altogether gentler look.
