(most days my hair resembles that of a bauhaus student)
talking about one's hair, i know, is a bit vapid but i'm going to indulge anyway. i am just into my 50s now and my hair has gone through so many changes the last few years it makes my head spin. every day is a little battle to do something with it. in my late 40s it thinned and i thought that was what i was left with. to my surprise it came back somewhat - but to my horror, curly. suddenly i had all this curl to deal with. not pretty curls either, more like clownish hair :( to be fair i've never had a neat hairdo in my life. it reacts to the moisture in the weather like a flower to rain. after a few days it's nearly pin straight. i just have to bend to it's will. i keep bobby pins in my pockets at all times. i am always in a state of "growing it out" and simultaneously cutting off bits that are dry or have turned brassy from hair dye (which i stopped using at my daughter's request). i'm still on the fence about getting my hair "straightened" or relaxed with one of the new non-chemical treatments but will probably never get round to it. in the end my hair gets a 2 min evaluation each morning in the mirror, some bobby pins and then i just avoid looking at myself after that. every once in awhile i'll catch myself in a shop window though and think my god, you look insane, woman. i have things to do though! i can't be bothered with hair dryers and it doesn't work anyway. so for now i'm growing out my bangs and the rest. the curls have relaxed with the weight of my hair somewhat. i'm hoping by summer it will have a softer look, less like a madwoman.
i love her hair .. another inch or 2 (and no rain) and i might get this look ..
monica vitti has perfect hair.
my hair looks a lot like this on a good day but without the bangs.
i love this cut and will surely embrace it if my hair doesn't grow out well.
me (2 yrs ago?). my bangs are almost to my chin now but you get the idea.
