Yep, you can say I'm pretty pumped to be sporting my new lively volume lifting do. See, I have a sister who has the funnest spiralest springy curls...and she and her husband passed those on to my beautiful niece and nephew as well. I've always envied her cute set of curls.
When I was in seventh grade and she was in ninth, we went to have our hair permed (the thing to do in the late eightie/early nineties). I had visions of sweet spirals abounding from my head. But alas, all I got was a little bit of wave that fell out. Not too far after that, my Nana, got another perm for me (having been her who allowed me/paid for my first perm). Again, not much result except a little bit of burnt hair that had to be cut shoulder length and turned out to be a nice do for me. But my sister, with her delicate fine hair...had curls abounding and, at that time, the "big hair" that every girl tried to achieve with as much Aqua Net as they could talk their mother into purchasing. While walking into the bathroom when she was fixing her hair might have required a chemical mask...it was still pretty cool that she had the "in" hair...while I dealt with the dull straight hair.
Do you need a tissue for my sad tale??? I hold no grudges against my sibling and love her hair...she still gets those bouncy curls, although she straightens them more often than not now (or did last time I saw)...but she has options to what she can do with her hair. My options were...pull up, put down, and occasionally, flip out, flip under.
But now, dear readers who can't believe I've written this much on the thickness of my
But they did!
And while there is a fine line between wavy and out of control to some bouncy curls and lots of wave...I'm getting the hang of this new do and hope it sticks around after Mr. Bryant makes his debut!
And to prove that my hair
is was straight and really thick...here's a picture from February:
So the poof and wave were starting but not quite there yet!
The only thing I'm worried about is that my mom said she got wavy/curly hair when she was pregnant with me. Is that a sign of things to come with dear Bryant? I guess we'll just have to wait and see!
