Perm And A Happy Mom And Daughter

Good Morning everyone....the perm I gave my daughter Thursday at school was a complete success. My daughter Kara, asked me to give her a perm about a month ago...so I put her in the appointment book and was excited for her to come to my school. Because we live 3 hours away from our family right now, it is always SOOOOOO nice when they come and stay with me here in Rapids. My mom came with her which also which was an added bonus.....love you mom!!!!! Anyway, Kara didn't want a spiral/real curly perm...she wanted more of a beachy wave....I crossed my fingers that I could give her that result and started asking the senior students and the teachers how I would get this beachy wave effect. We decided to use rods that they were all very new at using called Italian rods. It took a few tries to figure out how to use them but we did it and the result was everything Kara was hoping for.

Here Kara is before the perm....I should have taken a picture of the back of her hair also...things were crazy there before we started, was not thinking I guess.

Right now until January, we have a partner during our appointments. Stevie Jean was my assistant for Kara's perm.....she did a great job and it was a pleasure to work with her.

Kara all wrapped up.

Kara and I after the wrap.

It took us about 1 hour and 45 minutes to wrap this....not too bad for novice wrappers.

After took out the rods.


And here she is as we were walking to the car to go for lunch.....LOVE IT!!!! I gave her a trim at home on Saturday and she colored my hair.

I have some pictures of our cabinets but I don't have time to load them right now. I will get to that hopefully tomorrow. I better get ready for school.....Blessings everyone....Rhonda
