We've seen Padma Lakshmi with long hair. We've seen her with short hair. But never, until now, have we seen the Bravo's Top Chef judge with hair like this. Hop in your DeLorean and keep scrolling — we're taking a trip back in time to check out Padma's perm of yore.
On April 4, the food expert shared a throwback snap of her eighth-grade self with a head of bouncy, tightly curled hair. In her caption, Padma even gave a little shout-out to the hairstylist behind said style — which happened to be herself.
Joking about the deadpan expression on her face in the throwback snap, the cookbook author wrote: "TFW you home-perm. (I am obviously pissed because my hair did not come out right for picture day.)"
Even though Padma of yesteryear couldn't manage to muster a smile for this style, we certainly can! Long live #80sHair.
