You're so smart to have avoided that Bobby. Hypothetical actors and setting aside the fact that Bradley Cooper looks yummy with both straight and curly hair--you couldn't pay me personally to get a perm now, even for a stronger curl pattern like 3B-3C, because I think it would damage my hair too much. Well, I guess you could pay me enough but it'd have to be sizable. Maybe 5K. So glad I wasn't born in the 70's and sidestepped a lot of embarrassing pictures of bad fashion and an ugly perm. Actually my mother recently showed me a picture of my teenage aunt with her bad perm circa 1982. It was pretty cringeworthy.
