I have been inquiring thru several salons about doing a permanent wave. One lady told me that its not best to do a permanent wave, she said it was best to do it in a finger wave (not permenant) She also said there was no such thing as a permenant finger wave. I"m absolutely confused because I ran into another lady who told me that her daughter does permanent waves. This is done in an ethnic salon that specializes this type of style. I see the lady all the time, and she always has some kind finger wave done to her hair..mind you her hair is different than mine. Question: Is there such a thing as a permenant wave? I recently found this article. http://www.revampvintage.com/30sbrushcurling.html Any info or sites would be greatly appreciated.
