My Mom just got this today! She’s considering some un-asian hair color to spice it up.

My mom thought I looked super cute with curls, so she made me get a perm for school picture day and other big events. This was a nightmare, because I was a hyper kid. Sitting still for an hour with smelly chemicals in my hair was torture.

And we’re not even going to talk about the suit.

To fully comprehend the significance of this photo, you’d have to know that The Girl with the Perm at Prom is none other than super-chic style-blogger/academic smarty-pants Minh-Ha T. Pham, of Threadbared and Of Another Fashion fame. If you see pics of her today, you’d recognize that her hair now, long since returned to its natural “strate” (straight + state), is always on point—as is her mind.

In other words, perms, in all of their infinite glory and wretchedness, can happen to the best of us.
