How much money would someone have to pay you to get a perm?

Are you kidding??? I'd SO rock a perm! Picture it, if I grew out my hair and rocked a full-on white man's afro?? I'd rule the world in a matter of months. You'd all have to bow to the power of my caucasiafro!

But seriously, I'll take $50,000 anyway, since you're offering

probably 5k. i'd work it.

Tim said...

Mine already is...but i'll reverse the question and ask how much it would take for me to straighten my hair...the answer would have to be at least $100K.

Everything else from the 80s is coming back around, so I dont think its going to be a tough sell. I'm just waiting to rock my vintage flannel again in 10 years.

tim, you do not have a perm!

i mean, if someone is willing to pay me an unlimited amount of money, i won't be greedy... i'd do it for $25,000,000

i would actually do it for $50K - is that enough for a down payment on a row house?

Karen said...

$10,000,000 at the length my hair is now. I'd look like little orphan Annie. Less if my hair was longer. I like Cate's idea of buying a house, so I'd want enough for a good house and the money to redo whatever in it needs redoing and paint the outside a tasteful shade of purple or plum.

how long must said perm be maintained? if it's just the once, it would not take much. I wear my hair up all the time anyway...

Well, considering that tomorrow I'll be dying my hair the closest thing to fuchsia I can find, I'd do it for a few drinks. Problem is that I wouldn't want to really hurt my hair so I'd have to get it done at a really nice salon, so I guess the answer is something like $500. Enough for the whole perm, cut, color deal & drinks & lunch after.

Hell, I'll do it at cost.

Andrew said...

$5, I'm cheap like that. But, I'd probably go and ruin it by washing my hair within the first 24 hours. Yeah, I've watched Legally Blonde. I'm not ashamed.

i love that andrew regularly quotes legally blonde.

i don't need a perm, i already rock a sweet fro. however, if anyone wants to give me a keratin treatment, i wouldn't turn it down.
