I’m so excited – I have new hair!  Well, ok…it’s the same old hair, but it’s curly now!  I took the plunge and got a perm.  🙂



I’ve wanted to do this for over a year and finally got up the guts.  I showed my hairstylist Carole pictures of my friends Beth and Lori from when they were out here for StampMania last year.  I have so many friends with naturally curly hair – Jen, Taylor, Jess, Emily – and I think a lot of them have fought their I am paying to get them.  *chuckle*



Carole has done my hair for over 20 years so I asked her straight up if I could get their naturally curly look with a perm and she said Yes!  She told me she would want to send me home in the perm rods to keep them in for 5 hours so the perm could air oxidize before I took them out and just rinsed my hair (no shampoo for 3 days).  No I didn’t take a picture with my hair in rods and my head wrapped in trash bag!  LOL!  That first night was a little rough as I discovered at 11pm with a soaking wet head of hair that my diffuser from 15 years ago didn’t fit my current blow dryer and I realized I had failed to purchase any hair products for curls.

I called Lori while standing in the beauty supply store the next day to make sure I got the right stuff.  Everyone I have talked to swears by this Curls Rock stuff and I must say it’s awesome! Once I washed my hair and dried it with a diffuser with the Curls Rock products I was thrilled!


Enough babbling about my hair – can you tell I’m excited?  LOL!

Hope you had a wonderful Easter.  We had a lovely day – Sunday School and Church in the morning, a family lunch in our backyard (ate way too much), a nap, and the day was capped off by Fish Taco Night at church (’cause you know Jesus ate fish to show his disciples he was real after the resurrection!).  No stamping yesterday to share today, but thanks for hanging with me anyway!

    I *love* the new ‘do!!!! Those curls are fabulous (and so’s the outfit!). You look mahvellous 😀
    I wish I had hair that would decide if it was either (a) curly or (b) straight. Unfortunately, I have hair that is somewhat curly here and there, and somewhat straight everywhere else. Maybe I’ll follow your good idea and get my hair stylist to help me out. He’s a bit of a miracle-worker.

    Love it! I so wish I was brave enough to get another perm! I have to say the first thing that came to mind was “So Pretty in Pink” !!

  22. Barbara (Oldstmpr) Says:

    WOWZA!!!! Fantastic new look, Jami. I am anxious to see in person…in a few weeks.

  23. Carole (TruCarMa) Says:

    Ooh la la, Jami! Fab new ‘do! Trés chic! : ) Looks easy but cute, too — what more could be wanted?! BTW, will you be at Summer CHA so I can see it in person? I would love a similar style, but my hair is cut off in a million different layers right now…

    Love the curls Jami!! I have straight hair too, and all my life until a few years ago paid to have curls (imagine Farrah Fawcett-like tresses!) but mine was SO straight that it never quite worked. I now have short straight (but fluffy!) hair and I owe it all to my Tigi Catwalk. I use “Work It” hair spray and it’s the best EVER!! I spend a small fortune but it’s so worth it…that Curls Rock must be just as good!!
