Today, I finally got another Japanese straight perm. I wanted to get it before my new job starts. When I walked into the salon this morning, the owner (who didn't seem very friendly) told me to sit down and wait (I was a little early for my appointment). Anyway, last time Yoshimi did my perm, but I got Yuka today. She was an absolute delight! :) She was so friendly, and we chatted a bit. Fortunately, the damage control she put on my hair, a trim, and head massage were all included in the price of the perm. :) I walked out after 3.5 hours. Now I'm home, but I can't tie my hair back, or even tuck my hair behind my ears for 48 hours! Oh well; I'm just glad that I'm doing all this before my new job starts. I could tell that Yuka did a better job with my perm than my previous worker. I planned to tip her 15%, but I was so impressed by her service that I tipped her 20%. :)
It's been so hot these days! I keep sweating, so I'm paranoid that my perm will get ruined (since my hair can't touch water for 48 hours)! Oh well. I'm hoping and praying that my hair will turn out perfect (which I know is unrealistic).
I'm a little worried that I might gain weight once I start my new job.
