In case you’ve been living under a proverbial rock for the past few months, perms are back and in a big way. Emma Stone and Jaimie King have already tried versions of the throwback hair treatment, and now Olivia Munn is getting on the action.
As the Office Christmas Party actress revealed on her Instagram Stories, she headed to Mare Salon (the same spot as Stone and King) in LA to make the big tress transformation. “My hair is so thick and heavy that I have a hard time getting body into it,” she said. “Sooo I’m putting in my first permanent wave by @bykileyfitz. Wish me luck!”
The move was a big deal for Munn, who only just dyed her hair for the first time ever last year. Unlike your mom’s ‘80s perm, which was likely achieved with damaging heat, this new version uses soft foam curl rollers and a gentle solution to achieve a more customized wave.
The Ocean’s 8 star shared the two-hour process with fans as stylist Kiley Fitzgerald worked her magic, tighty winding Munn’s hair into the foam rollers.
She also gave us a video update on her look over the weekend via Instagram stories, and so far, so good. “Okay, I haven’t washed my perm out yet because I’ve been busy, but I’m super excited because now that I’ve got a perm I have all these cool fuzzy baby hairs that before were just super straight,” she relayed.
