Friday Five

Actually on Friday this time:

1. Is your hair naturally curly, wavy, or straight? Long or short?

It's naturally straight, and...let me see...about shoulder-length.

2. How has your hair changed over your lifetime?

I've never experimented with color, but my hair has been all kinds of lengths and styles. In the late 1980s, I had the standard BIG hair--tons of Aqua Net hair spray, very high bangs. I used a curling iron and all that. Then in high school, my hair was pretty calm for the most part--almost the way it is now, just bangs on the forehead and shoulder length (my forehead is too high not to have bangs). Then, in college, I went through kind of an anti-glam phase. I wore clothes that were inspired by that Green Day work clothes/coveralls look, and my hair was like Mia Farrow's pixie cut in Rosemary's Baby. Observe:


I had my hair really short like that for years, but I don't think I'm thin enough to look good with that haircut anymore. The pixie cut looks best on very slender people, I think.

3. How do your normally wear your hair?

Parted on the right side, hanging straight down. I hardly ever use any ponytail holders or barrettes.

4. If you could change your hair this minute, what would it look like?

It would be the way it is now, but THICK. My hair is baby fine and there's not a whole lot of it.

5. Ever had a hair disaster? What happened?

Nah, it's just hair, it'll grow back.
