Oh, the 1980s! You gotta miss those weird jeans and wired telephones, and these things that made girls unstoppable. But what about that perm hairstyle? My mother loved it and I can’t stop looking at her pictures. The perm is a symbol of the ’80s that was left in the past because all that nowadays girls do is straighten their hair. However, one celebrity tried to bring the trend back and people are screaming. Twenty-nine-year-old Emma Stone just got a perm, and now girls are calling the salon to have one, too!
The La La Land actress appeared on Instagram in a picture with her makeup artist. Taking to her Instagram account, makeup artist Rachel Goodwin uploaded a photo of herself and Stone in a salon and captioned it:
“We have a permanent bond! Some friends get tattoos, well we get perms! We’re here to tell you that they are BACK and theyre not your grandmas perm! Especially when you are in the amazing hands of @mararoszak and @bykileyfitz at @mare_salon #curlyisthenewstraight this is the #newwave”

Fans were dying to see the result of the hairstyle, and they quickly got to se her, thanks to an Emma Stone fan account. You could see the two women with their retro hairstyles and some people even got jealous. One fan wrote:
“LOVE doing perms!!! So glad to see Emma Stone got one!! Wish I could have been the hairstylists to do it!! She’s my FAVORITE actress and I totally just colored my hair red, inspired by her!! OBSESSED!!! 😍😍😍”
One Twitter user went as far to say that she wants to get a perm. Emma was, of course, her inspiration.
Ok so I want a perm now and I blame Emma Stone.

Interestingly, Emma may not be the only one to rock this retro hairstyle. Late last year, Matrix SoColor Celebrity Stylist George Papanikolas revealed the perm was set for a big comeback in 2018. Speaking to InStyle, he explained: “The perms trend back in the ‘80s had extra volume, tight waves, curly fringe, and lot’s of hairspray paired with a scrunchy or headband. Back in the ’80s the perm looked frizzier with lot’s of backcombing.”
However, Papanikolas explained that the modern version of the perm will be a subtler version.
“Today it’s more about the beachy look, like the one you see on Victoria’s Secret models or even the tousled, effortless-looking waves that show up on nearly every red carpet.”
would you do it, too?
