Apparently perms are coming back.

I can’t make this up people.

According to an article on Today, the lovely ’80s trend is slowly but surely making a glorious return to homes everywhere.

Here’s the deal. I wear a lot of sweatpants. I get that. My fashion consists of Target and Target sales. I am not able to pick out the latest styles or must have looks. But I do know a thing or two about perms.

They are a bad idea.

Sure, some people say, “But you can get the wavy look or the crimped look and it gives volume to your hair.”

No. Just no.

You know what happens when you try to get volume in your hair?

This. This happens.

No, The Perm Should Not Make A Comeback

And if you bring back those glasses, I will never speak to you again.

It never looks like the box, people. Never. Unless you have some kind of amazing talent, perms should be left in the decade with parachute pants and MC Hammer. Please listen to those of us who know. We mean well and we’re trying save you from pain.

Put down the perm kit and walk away.
