Our sister site Racked LA interviewed Heidi Klum about her hair routine and found that apparently her mom, a hair dresser, was a hair-Nazi: "She chopped it all in different layers and then she gave me a perm afterwards, so this [gestures to the sides of her head] all got really short and I had straight sideburns and then the back was slightly waved because, obviously the long hair didn't hold the perm as well as the rest so here [sides of head] was super poodle and here [back of the head] was like a slight wave." Child abuse or useful technique to humble a future supermodel? [Racked LA]
