Glamour Hair -- Part One

This week after we got back from our beach adventure, it was time for everyone to get a glamorous new 'do. My youngest girl went first -- she has been waiting f-o-r-e-v-e-r to get her hair cut! She heard about a year and a half ago about this fabulous organization -- and this week she is finally ready to offer up her donation.

Before her haircut, she spent a lot of time with her hair pulled back in a braid -- trying her hardest to avoid this look:

Oh, have mercy! -- the crying and sadness while this long swoop of hair was brushed every morning! And just so you know, when all else fails, a lens can be held inside a glasses frame using Super Glue.

But now --!

My dears! This sassy bob exposes her elegant dancer's neck -- and she is free at last! from the torture of the tangled morning mess. It has changed her life, I tell ya!

Now she is ready to send off her donation to the wonderful people at Locks of Love, and who knows -- maybe she'll start all over again! [tangent: my youngest girl rocks the long, flowy scarf, I must say.]

It is true that this ballerina bun is a once and future thing -- who knows when we'll see it again? -- at least on this particular ballerina!


  1. What a lovely daughter! You must be so proud. Tulsa, my hometown, is host to a magnificent ballet company, I have visited Hot Springs, VA a few times and never wanted to leave. Loved it.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. Your blog is great! Have a wonderful 4th! -- karen

  2. Hi, Karen -- I have family in Oklahoma -- in Greer County, in the extreme southwest corner of the state. I'm sorry to tell you that those who leave for college tend to head to Norman or Weatherford, rather than Tulsa!

    Thanks so much for visiting my blog!
