It's quite common for boys in Korea to get a perm...especially younger boys. Personally, I'm not a fan. I think it looks like they just got out of bed. It brings more 'body' to their hair than curl. Here are a few photos of my kids with perms--these guys are 6 years old.
Thomas' perm is cute:)
The boy on the right's hair was about 6 inches taller right after he got his perm. He was so proud of his perm!
Boys/men in Korea are nothing like guys at home! Do you know any men who got a perm to add 'body' to their hair?
