"No perms! Never get a perm. And if you do, make sure they don’t over-curl. It was so in fashion, but my hair just didn't take to it well. Whenever I look back at photos of me wearing pencil jeans I'm like, ‘Oh, why did I do that?’ It never worked," she wrote.

Despite her regrets, it's safe to say that Shania's followers disagreed with her and many inundated her with compliments after she shared the throwback image.
