So what to do with my hair.

My mom and i made an agreement at the beginning of this year that she would let me get colored highlights if i kept my grades up this semester. And i have so i’m allowed to. And she’s really against the colored highlights. So she wants me to get a perm. It would be where my hair would be constantly curly and poofier. I DO NOT KNOW WHAT TO DO. I mean i love big hair. Like really big hair. And i would love it, i know i would. But i have always wanted to get colored highlights. But i don’t know! I mean what do i do?! i don’t want the colored highlights to look bad. But I DON”T KNOW!!! I mean how is one to chose between these 2 things? I know these are totally first world problems, but seriously i have no clue what to do. I guess i’ll just talk to Mrs. Olini (the women who cuts my hair) about it.
