The Friday Five!

Hair today, goon tomorrow

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

I have what I officially dub as “weenie hair”. It’s ultra fine and ultra thin and made a really sad pony tail when I had it long. Fortunately it has a little (oh so tiny) natural wave to it so it’s not totally hopeless.

Ummm…my hair is naturally growing so I’m not sure how to answer the length question. Heh, “Yes, my hair is naturally long! Every time I buzz cut it I wake up the next morning to discover it has grown three or four feet over night.”

2. How has your hair changed over your lifetime?

I started out as a strawberry blond when I was a wee thing and now I have mouse shit brown hair. It’s actually a pretty cool color in that it camouflages the gray hairs something wonderful. You can hardly tell I have a few good handfuls of gray and shocking white hair. The down side is that at some point the gray will overwhelm the stealth brown and I’ll look extremely old and silvered in the span of about half a year. I know, it happened to my father and we have the same sort of hair. I did dye it black for about a year, which was fun but too much upkeep (it all started as a Hallowe’en costume but I couldn’t find the wash out black dye. Nuff said).

As to length, long, short, medium, long, long, long, medium, short-short.

3. How do your normally wear your hair?

Short-short with minimal care. I had it cropped when I started doing dojo stuff regularly because the long hair got way too hot and sticky, plus it is an enormous pain in the keester tailing for the lion and trying to look through long bangs.

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

Thicker! I always wanted a little more hair but not so much that my head burst into flame in the summer time. Maybe if all my hairs were one step thicker on the hair thickness scale that would be grand.


5. Ever had a hair disaster? What happened?

Hee! That would be the poodle doo of ’86. My vision when I went in for my first perm was to come out with a little more body in my mostly flat hair but no trace of curl because I did not want curly hair. Wavy yes, curly no. The hair stylist must have mistook “wavy” for Shirley Temple Head on crack because DAMN there was not a straight lock of hair to be found on my head anywhere. I have yearbook pictures to commemorate it too.
