Recently, some of us bloggers played a game of tag. Once tagged, we had to post 7 weird things about ourselves. Well, I just want to tell all you of who commented or emailed me about being afraid to cut my hair. It’s not a drastic change, but I went to the “beauty shop” (old school for stylist) and got a little maintenance and a little update. But first, how about a little hair history?
All through high school I had long, straight, parted-in-the-middle blonde hair. They used to call it “dirty” blonde. I never did consider that a compliment, either. I mean, strawberry blonde just sounds so much more romantic, don’t you agree?. During my freshman year of college, my steady boyfriend of 3 years was stepping out on me at his college, and that just got me over my fear of cutting my hair.
My part-time job was working at a local grocery store. One day while working up in the office, high above the crowds, I spied a young woman with the cutest hair cut I had ever seen. I ripped out of that office cubicle, raced up to her, and asked her who cut her hair. Just my luck . . . she cut it herself and she’d be glad to do mine. It would be just like me to meet a stranger at her apartment and trust her with my first major hair cut since first grade.
Do you remember the precision cut? Well, that’s what I got, and then I had to go find me one of those new innovative hair-drying devices called a “blow dryer”. Seriously, prior to that, I didn’t own one. Since I didn’t know how to use one, the one time I tried my friend’s dryer, my hair looked like Janis Joplin’s hair on a good day!
So, here’s then . . . . Bangs in 1974 (Sorry about picture quality. This was the best I could do with this photo.)
And for all of you who want me to cut the rest of my hair short, well, maybe I will consider it after I lose 20 pounds! Nothing like incentive, I always say.
Oh, and one other thing–remember my list? One of the items was the fact that my nose runs when I eat. I might have to take that off my list, too, because Heather found yesterday what it is and how to fix it. Skip over here to find out more!
