dex is a hair maestro, no doubt about it. he always makes me feel so fabulous! loved the curls! unfortunately, i can't have them permanent. mr hair maestro informs me that perms would never achieve the effect we see here. hence, i have to be happy with getting them for a day whenever i go for my trim. he also offered to teach me to do them at home, and order me a pair of curling tongs. not a bad idea?
