For my 60th birthday party daughter Jess complied a timeline of my haircuts......here is a small selection !
|Comments aren't really needed for pudding basin cuts.......why did our mothers do this to us ?|
|Hair bands.....and the kids in matching granny knit jumpers|
|I adored that dress...bought with my first Saturday job wage. I earned 27/6d for a day working at Stead and Simpsons in Hendon. I think the dress cost £1.19/.6d, so mum lent me the rest. This was 1970....I was 15.|
|My American Lit lecturer just informing me that his zip had broken in his trousers|
|Me.....a very suntanned teacher....just returned from a US holiday.|
|Another teacher pose....with my Sheboygan High class.|
|My first visit to Venice.|
|I'm on the left, wearing one of my mother's dresses, which I absolutely loved and wish I still had.....although as it would never fit in a million years, perhaps it is best that I don't still have it.|
I had to get rid of the frizz and dead ends after Jess was born
but never mind about my hair.....what about Marks ?
|I went back to being dark for a while. If you are taking notice here, you will see that I, too, used a pudding basin on my daughter. Sorry Jess...it's a mother thing.|
|oh heavens...another damn perm. I think this was the last one...never to be repeated.|
|yes, looking lovingly into Kevin Costner's eyes !|
|I don't know why it took me so many years to have the gap in my front teeth fixed !|
|Then began the orange phase......I loved it.|
|Sometimes the orange was maybe a bit too much ! I seem to recall|
most of this came off on the pillow case at night.
Then came the wigs:
and finally, enough hair growth to get rid of the wigs. ( They are still in a drawer in my bedroom.....what do people do with old wigs ?)
|The post chemo curly phase|
|and finally, back to normal|
|except when my hairdresser of 24 years decides it is long enough to put up !|
