Finally a picture where my bangs are a normal length. Freda's are just about right too. I think Mama quit whacking on my bangs when Freda came along. Mama kept Freda's hair in a pixie cut.
I usually wore my hair longer and pulled back in a ponytail. I remember Aunt Dorcas was visiting when I asked Mama for a wide barrette so I could pull my hair back like Susie Jones did hers. They both started in with, "Back in our day, we did good to have bobby pins." Good Grief! I never did get that barrette!
Mama gave me a lot of Tonette perms when I was a kid. They usually came right out. Hubby always asks why they call it a permanent when it only stays temporarily. He hates the smell of me when I get a perm.
My sister's hair always took a permanent too well. I wonder why Mama always gave Freda a perm right before picture day? She looked cute but her hair sure was curly. I will not post a picture.
I guess I don't have much room to talk about home hairdos. After getting my daughter's hair cut once, she told me the beautician had said I should leave her hair alone. Her hair used to stick straight up in the air like we lived in some freaky static electricity zone. I won't post a picture of her's either. She has pretty hair now.
I pin curled my grand daughter's hair Saturday night thinking it would look like Rita Hayworth's hair.
It did not look like Rita's.
It looked like Little Orphan Annie's hair. In fact, Rachel broke out in a tap dance that could have been from a Broadway Show. It was so funny.
She pulled it back in a ponytail. This is how she usually wears it.
I sent a little comb to school with my son on kindergarten picture day and told him to be sure to comb his hair. He did.
This is my all time favorite picture of him.
