Hair Do's and Dont's

Katie today wanted to give me a hair do. I love letting her. I LOVE having my hair brushed and played with! Many times I have wished I had straight hair just so my significant others (boyfriends and now husband) could run their fingers through my hair. It would be so much more romantic if they didn't hit a snarl halfway through.

Anyway...

Kate was brushing out my hair with the brush and crayons (???) when she says, "Mom, I'm not going to brush all the tangles ( a better word for curly hair). I don't want Dad to fall out of love with you!" This made me laugh. I have often told her that one of the reasons that Dad fell in love with me was because he loved my hair. (mostly in efforts to make her feel better about her own curls and frizz...she wants straighter hair like her friends. One friend told her that her hair wasn't smooth and it has been an issue ever since!) "Mom, your hair is too big," were the next words our of her mouth. Followed by, "your hair is too puffy."

I have always wanted to have a celebrity make over. Wouldn't it be soooo cool to see what Nick (from What Not To Wear) or some other hair genius, could do with this...

Hopefully it would look better than this... (no offense Kate, you are till my favorite stylist) she calls this brilliant style a "garden" hair do, complete with flowers and dragonflies...

P.S. You know one year, I think I was 14, I actually used my hair to my advantage. It was Halloween and I brushed it out and teased it and made the most awesomely realistic lion's mane. I was the Sheepish Lion form the wizard of OZ.

I love you to pieces Jen but what makes these pictures even better is the cool Panda Bear tshirt you are wearing! I needed that today!

I know the feeling. You should see what mine looks like when I wake up in the morning now that I have short hair.

Mary I don't know if you will check back to see this comment, but everytime I wear this shirt (every morning unless I actually get dressed in nice going out clothes) Sara points to the bears and roars.

Jessie has never done my hair- only Jon's... She gives him barettes and hairbands and the whole shebang. I should take a picture of THAT and post it...

Oh the endless possibilities(sp). I could never make my hair look like a lions maine. I can't even hold a curl in Hawaii. Its too humid. I remember the first and last time I spent an hour curling my hair for BYUH and then watching it all fall out the second I walked outside. Boo.

That's awesome that you took a picture of Katie's hard work and wrote down her cute little comments! I love having my hair brushed out and "fixed".

What's this about boyfriends running fingers thru your hair?
