This post is for carrie, who asked about my hair yesterday…..

I am drawn to the Victory Rolls lately. I have been reading about them in my vintage hairstyles book and watching some youtube how-to’s.

Here are my first few experiments.  Sadly, both days were EXTREMELY humid..so I am hoping to have better success in Utah at my sister’s wedding:

I wish it would stay looking all tousled like picture 3 of 4, but I think it would just fall way flat….kind of like the first set of pix.  Again–it was VERY moist on both days that I experimented. I also learned not to sleep in the rollers–I suffered from an aching neck for a few days. NOT WORTH IT.

Jason of course kept saying: your hair.

He knows after 15 years together to just go with it.



hairI cut Lolly’s hair!  After, I made sure to blow dry it under to conceal any mistakes.  I am not the BEST hair dresser and her hair goes on forever! She looks pretty darling with it, though I will miss the high bun!

Holiday Hair

Holiday HairI was in a houseful of girls with gobs of hair, so we did some pintubing and came up with all sorts of great Christmas Sunday looks.  See the girls’ buns featured in their Christmas Eve Music Video.  In our New Years Video we just went for teasing and Aquanet.  I had a fun time.

People Watching: Dreadlock

I have never seen a dreadlock situation quite so humongous.  It reminded me of a huge chewed up tootsie roll or something else, less candy-like.

I imagined it was probably quite a heavy load to carry around and there might be hidden objects to be found and that perhaps it smelled, but I didn’t get close enough to see if I was right about any of those things.  Is there hair in their from the 1960’s? How long did it take to become that piece of hair art?

Dreads always make me wonder how the scalp feels and if it ever feels clean and fresh. I will never know, because I think I can safely say, I will never have dreadlocks.

They’re getting so big!
