men with perms

Since it may be awhile before I film a man getting a perm, here are some links to guys with perm and roller sets:



One of the things that I've been doing lately is watching B&W movies from the 1930s.  I have really become addicted to them!  A Virgin in Hollywood (1948) is perfect for those curious about pin-up photography and retro undergarments and swim suits.  Red-Headed Woman (1932) has a few beauty shop scenes.  In one, the leading actress gets a facial.  In that scene, a perm machine can be seen in the corner -- and you should have seen me watching it, I was like, use it!  Use the machine!   :D

Baby Face (1933) has some of the most gorgeous hairstyles that I've seen, all done with perm machines, pincurls, and finger waves.  (These methods are not shown).

I'm not yet finished watching Waterloo Bridge (1931), but from watching it, I've been asking my husband to grow out his hair so I could cut it and give him the debonaire hairstyle that I've seen "Roy" wear.  My goodness, I never thought I'd go gaga over any one hairstyle before!

A man with a perm speaks!
Hi Kat,

Love your stuff and your site. I'm a regular customer. I'm one of the one's with pics on Yahoo Groups PFM3. I've posted my last two perms, one in February and the last one, in April. Both perms were with designer "euro" cylindrical rods (10 mm, 7 mm and 5 mm) which give a little different look than concave rods of the same size. I try to take photos each time I go in for one but it's kinda difficult to bother the stylist to shoot them so if my wife's not available, I end up just taking a few arm's length snap shots myself just to journalize the event for future reference. This works well because it seems what goes on the stylist's chemical services card is sometimes NOT what actually happened. I remember having to almost insist she use blue and yellow rods last December instead of gray because it got written down wrong. Photos don't lie! My quest is to get the perfect perm and document it so it can be reproduced again and again. So far, that hasn't quite come to fruition but maybe someday. Keep up the good work. If you're a good detective, you can figure out who I am and how to contact me if you wish.

I wish you luck on getting the perfect perm. :) With your determination, I'm sure that you'll succeed.

Heya Kat, Im a bit of a fan also, just noticed you were looking for a male perm model, I wish i lived in the US, I'd be yours to style, as long as it only involved rollers and perms(no short do's goin on here). Im 34 and finally perms have come back into fashion bigtime in my part of the world. Guys and Gals are taking advantage everywhere around here, much to my delight! Im getting perms every 3-4 months and absolutely loving it, theres no stigma once again, Im not gay, just adventurous and uninhibited. Last Saturday I got my very first afro perm, it took 4 hours and i loved it, slightly scary but well worth it, and to top it off, my girlfriend loves it and I look pretty cool(if I do say myself). Anyway thanks for the perm vision stuff and dont worry you'll find a willing young man soon enough.
PS when you do, wheel out the smallest rollers in the salon and watch the look on his face, haha for better or worse ;)

Re: Perms
No, no haircut is needed. After that perm, I need the guy to have enough hair for a beehive!

I'll keep the tiny perm rods in mind. :)

Re: Perms
I'd be willing to be a model for the perm(any size rod) and definitely for the beehive. How long would the guys hair need to be?

Re: Perms
Hair needs to be no shorter than chin length. Hair to the shoulders is preferred.

Re: Perms
What would be the best way to get in touch with you once my hair gets to this length?

Male perm

I'm trying to finish a story in which the male has Beatle length hair and is forced to get a perm (sort of a reverse "Bernice Bobs Her Hair"). It probably comes out looking like Bob Dylan's hair in the early '60s.

Can you tell me all the steps you would go through to perm that sort of hair? With whatever amount of detail you're willing to type out--no detail would be too small.

I've asked everyone I know, but no one has been of any use. I've looked everywhere I can think of, but they all contradict each other or leave out steps. I've searched this site, but haven't seen this sort of description. If you've already addressed this somewhere else, the link would be appreciated.

Any info would be appreciated. I'll come back to this post, or you can email kadad@pdx.edu.

Thank you,

Re: Male perm
I'm sorry, try posting on one of the yahoo groups above. Since I am not a professional stylist, I know practically nothing about hair.

And although I have heard the name of Bob Dylan, I have no idea who he is. Just show a photo to a stylist, and they should be able to help you.

Good luck!

Re: Male perm

Just stumbled across your site, and read this post. I CANNOT believe you don't know who Bob Dylan is.

That's really all I had to say.

I've only had a couple of perms but I would live to get a really tight Afro perm. If you are ever looking for a male model for one, please contact me! Robbie_v@rocketmail.com
