Re: Easy Perm

That would be brilliant if there is - would be better than my amateur efforts! I did have a quick look in resources but I'm new to this site so may be looking in the wrong place ! - will have another go. Thanks for the advice.

Re: Easy Perm

Thanks for the advice guys - may try fitting a small light when I get to that stage (if I'm still alive!) just to see what affect it has.
