My 14th birthday, in 1986.
Before you pity me for attending middle school with my JCPenney perm (and what looks to be a butterfly clip on the left side), realize that I am wearing a shirt with a print of “Miami Mice” a PHENOMENALLY witty parody of Miami Vice. Which…was a big deal in 1986. Remember?
Blow out the candles, Kim. Remember, hair grows back.
HA! I never had a perm.
I do not recall Miami Mice. I was nine or 10 in 86? I do recall Miami VICE.
I tried the perm route one more time in high school to TRY to achieve spiral curls but that was a no-go as well.
