The Hair Curtain Lives Again



Thought I'd add a visual, since this post is generating so much enthusiasm. (What, does my blog have garlic breath today?)

Yes, I do still have the Hair Curtain. And it still smells like Pantene.

I am probably going to donate it to Locks of Love, a nonprofit that makes wigs for children suffering the effects of chemotherapy as well as alopecia areata. (I've always wanted a child with my hair, though I can't say this was how I pictured it happening.) Or, I might save it as a fluffy pet for the Imaginary Baby. Sew on buttons for eyes, add a collar and a leash...  Posted by Hello

What I really want to see is a picture of the pompadour! :) Babies of older women are troubled, especially IVF babies?? That's a new one on me. It's so disappointing when dear friends show their infertility ignorance, isn't it? Ugh, I'm sorry.

No garlic breath...I didn't comment immediately probably b/c it hit so close to home. I have thick, fine hair - unusual combination, but I used to get complimented all the time as an adult.

When I grew up, my hair grew out. Well after the fact, I realized my long hair was a reaction to my lazy mother who didn't want to detangle my hair, so she kept me in a Pixie, i.e. bowl haircut, all my life. Somehow, my sister with the beautiful ringlets escaped this torture - and strangely me writing this just made me realize that. Ditz.

I was in college before I figured out I had nice hair. When I was mid 20s, I went to get it all chopped. It was waist length (and has been several times since, too.) They wouldn't do it. They went to the neck, but not as far as the shaved shelf thing I wanted. When I went for the cut, they'd had a goal of collecting hair for a coloring clinic they were putting on tht evening. I filled their hair quota quickly first thing in the morning - so that's what happened to that mane. W/in a week, I went back for the cut I wanted. Just like you.

As I've gotten older, it has gotten wavier. I have liked having the body. Funny, tho, I'm not attached to a style or length. It all grows back anyway. Long is just easy and I agree w/you on that!

Honestly, most hairdressers aren't the brightest folks. The first time I went for a cut after my son was born, the woman had a cold. I wanted my first relaxation in 6 weeks and all I got was a cold. I should have gotten up and left, but I was new mom tired. At least J didn't catch it.

I'm still gasping over that IVF babies comment.
Ugh.
My stylist is not gay but very good with the hair and very sympathetic to the plight of his childless clientele. Unfortunately he's in Boston...maybe not worth the trip.

Your hair IS/WAS a curtain! A beautiful curtain at that - some lucky little kid (or kids - we're talking at least 3 or 4 little hair hats, no?) will love it and love you for doing that!

See my hair is not a curtain, it's more like a mop so I didn't think I had anything constructive to say unless you want to know which products I use on my hair while I'm cleaning the floor with it.

I am still dealing with the bad haircut some Jamaican woman gave me weeks ago...I think she toked de weed, man.

I have been so poor in my day that I cut my own hair -- flipped my head upside down over the garbage can and trimmed it with sewing scissors.

Looking fly, let me tell you....

"babies of older women are troubled"? Well slap my arse and call me Judy! I'm working on a little herd of wee troubled youth then. Some folks are just fucking idiots.

I'm red-faced to admit that I am still doing the 'Soper-cut' (trimming it myself) as my hair is really my only good feature. I have had the most traumatic experiences the last few times I've tried to get it cut professinally.

Here in South Carolina, if you're poor, you can't find anyone to cut your hair in any style save the White Trash 'Doo. (Long and straight in back with feathered bangs that they tease up real big) Aaaagghh!

Have you thought about getting one of those stiff leashes that you see at carnivals? The ones that make it look like you're walking an invisible dog? You need to get one of those and glue this hair too it! Again, my creativity has gone awry...

I must channel this creativity for productive uses...
