Born with many ringlets, I have done everything to my hair. I’ve slept with bandanas to try to flatten it; I’ve had it straightened. I got a Dorothy Hammil cut which little girls with curls should never have. Ive dyed it and braided it like Bo Derek. And like you, I, too, sported a brush cut. It was growing out by the time prom was rolling around. So I wore a hat.
Now, I don’t complain about my hair.
Because I have it.
I means my cells are being good. I don’t have cancer, and I am not in radiation. I have found other things to worry about and just be grateful for my unruly, surly hair. It fits my personality better.
I adore your hair Renee!!! And I am loving my long dirty blond hair nowadays. It makes me feel like a woman. LOVE your prom story!
My hair suffered many a perm because there wasn’t the tiniest hint of curls in it and well… I grew up in the 80s.
I saved the hairy-kiri for my Barbie dolls…
Nice to “meet” you.
It is so nice to meet you too Kelly!! Love the hairy-kiri on Barbie dolls–my own daughter does that all the time! xo, ~el.
Recently, The Versatile Blogger Award was bestowed upon me. I’d like to pass it on to you, in hopes that many more will find your blog, and appreciate you like I do!
The details for passing it on are in my latest post.
Hairy Kiri! I love it! I just posted last week about cutting off all my hair, but not that short!
Thank you so much Susie!!
What a great memory! I love the way you turned it into a story – I’m always awed by people who can share their memories and experiences in such a vivid, tangible way.
Emily–coming from you, that is quite a compliment! I love your writing! ~el.
I like how you smirked. Makes me like you even more! Fab writing.
LOL Leanne!! I smirk a lot. Giggle. Thank you so much!
