A Makeover!

My hair is so straight and fine... and it always looks the same. It looked like this when I was a little girl, in my HS Senior picture, in college, when I got married, and when I was a teacher. It just lays there! I use a curling iron... and it goes totally straight... and the curling iron is soooo hot I have scars on my neck, shoulders, and hands. I've used hot rollers... straight within an hour. So last month I asked Mary, who's been doing my hair since the girls were in booster seats at the salon, to do something I could wear to a wedding. I wasn't going to a wedding... I just wanted to do something fun.
So, this is my BEFORE picture... And this is my AFTER picture.
It took goop and rollers under the dryer. And a ton of hairspray. But I liked it! Of course I ripped it apart before I went to bed and have not been able to do it myself. Oh, well... at least I know it's possible if I have an occasion to need my hair up.
Thanks Mary!

What we women go through for the sake of beauty.

Sorry you thought I was dead! - just busy. Your packet hasn't arrived yet, in case you think I just haven't said. I'm sure it will, though.

Your hair's lovely! My hair is strictly as nature intended - too lazy to do anything to it. But I'm always impressed by those who do.

I'm off!

Love your hair. I have straight fine hair as well, naturally brown when I was youn(er) and now coloured with hair-dye in some nice and natural colours! We have to endure all those tortures to look great!

Joni, turn around I want to see your cute face with all that hair piled up....darling from behind. Funny, I had a bad hair day today, and in a moment of insanity, went into a "Super Cut" and said, take some of this "bulk" off....AND SHE DID....BOY DID SHE. I won't be posting a self portrait for a few weeks...thank heaven my hair does grow fast, and I had tons of it.
This was a darling post!!!

Here here Joni! I also went to the hairdressers this week. It is so nice to have someone do your hair and make you feel like a million dollars. Good on you for blogging it and reminding us of it! Hope you are having a great weekend :)
