#ThrowbackThursday: Celebrity Perms

We’re throwing back to the most noteworthy perms in Hollywood. Yes, we’re talking the tight corkscrew curls of the ’80s and ’90s. We bet some of you don’t even know that your favourite celebs rocked the infamous look, once upon a time. The once popular hairstyle was produced by  setting the hair in waves or curls and then treating it with chemicals so that the style lasts for several months. Who’s ready to bring it back?!

We know perms often have a bad rap, but we loved these flirty curls on Sarah Jessica Parker! The not-too-tight curls perfectly framed her face, and the highlights added some oomph.

Although not even the world’s tightest perm could make this baby-face look bad, we’re not so torn up that this look went ‘Bye bye bye.’ Nowadays Justin is off getting Brazilians! No, not the wax or the women: the hair straightening treatment.

It’s hard to believe that this was Victoria Beckham’s first modeling job in 1993. We’re glad this overly hairsprayed perm is a trend of her past.

These soft romantic locks were perfect for Jennifer’s role in Dirty Dancing. The beautiful bob gave any ensemble a youthful glow of sorts.
