OMG: The Body Wave is Back

Last weekend at brunch I noticed something different about my friend Phoebe’s hair. It was wavy. Not the kind you get from a curling iron or hot rollers, but soft, cascading, naturally bouncy waves. Before I could mutter the two words I haven’t said since the late eighties, she said them: BODY WAVE. Oh yes. My boho-chic, beauty-savvy friend let Mattie at Moxie Salon in St. Paul give her perm. And it looked damn good. Not a week later an my equally cosmopolitan girl Laura sent me this photo and asked where she could get her own BODY WAVE. Either the world is coming to an end or we are on the cusp of a new trend, the sort that will give those of us with slightly wavy hair something big and bouncy to work with. If you’ve ever had a body wave, or know of someone who’s gotten one recently, inquiring minds want to know! And please, send pics!
