The Good,the Bad and the Ugly...Hair Pt6



I have posted everyday for 6 days and I have one more hairdo surprise for tomorrow. It has been fun, but I will probably have to go back to just once a week posting. We will see.

This funky flip hairdo is apparently from 1983 which is time stamped in the corner of the right picture. Of course it is a bad replication of the famous Farrah Fawcett flip. I used to love Charlie's Angels.

These pictures were taken while I was on a trip to Texas visiting family. I wasn't really drinking beer. And that is the one and only time I ever wore a cowboy hat.

I just noticed the tie which was made up of different color ribbon like strings tied together. Anyone remember those?

Oh, and how many of you had braces? I had to wear the ridiculous headgear prior to having mine. What a Dork, E would say. When they finally were taken off I was supposed to wear a retainer. I didn't like that at all. Once on another family vacation to Florida, I left it in the hotel room hidden under the mattress. OOPs. Too late to go back when I finally admitted I had "forgotten it" half-way home!

I never had a ribbon tie like that. I did, however, have this barrette with ribbons braided on to it, and then the ribbons dangled down into my hair and it had feathers on the end. It was red and yellow :-)

In 1983 my hair was still boy-short, so nothing exciting like a Farrah flip for me.

I didn't have the ribbon tie, either, but I did have the ribbon barrettes. Mine were purple and white.

We called hair like that "weiner curls", no idea why. I never had hair long enough for that, but I remember a friend who made her mom do that to her hair daily and it took forever.

Shall I guess that you really got in trouble for leaving that retainer? ;)
