The perm, aka the "permanent" wave, was probably one of our biggest regrets back in the '80s and '90s. It required applying harsh chemicals to our locks and then sitting underneath a hair dryer while wearing perm rods just to achieve full-bodied waves. And don't even get us started on how many cans of Aqua Net hairspray were used in the process.
We've petitioned to remove every single perm hair picture from old family photo albums to no avail. However, we know exactly where to turn for a gut-busting laugh.
Relishing memories of our not-so-good hair days, we asked HuffPost Lifestyle's Facebook and Instagram communities to share their best perm hair photos. Check out some of the hair-raising images below, and share your perm stories in the comments section!
