Laura and Sue have been posting pictures of their hairstyles in their younger days, so I decided to join the party. It was too diffcult to choose just one ridiculous picture, so I decided to entertain you with my life history in hair.
I was born in 1954. By the time I was eighteen months old, mother was putting my hair in pincurls for church. That hurt!
For my wedding in 1976, I didn’t do anything special. I had cut my hair to lose a bad perm, and I just let it grow straight to my shoulders. I did have the “Farrah Fawcett wings” for bangs.
Marriage and college graduation called for a haircut. I was just too busy to mess with it.
Curly hair was required for my thirties, so I went back to perms.
Happy days! Perms were out by the time I hit my forties. I gladly went back to straight hair. For my fifties, I cut my hair very short. Those are my daughters. We were dressed up for a dinner cruise.
And just because I can, I’m posting Gayle’s college graduation picture. What a beauty! I never had the patience to do my hair in the Mary Tyler Moore Flip. My hair was so fine, it just fell out anyway.
