Hair Meme!

This was started by dancetomato and crazydiamondsue, and since I'm shameless, I have to do it, too. My various hair dos through the years... (Oooh, except my shaved head/rat tail breakdance years because my mother destroyed all of them because "I was so ugly." Aww, thanks, Ma.)

WARNING: image heavy.



When I was a leetle Stoney I was so blonde my hair was almost white. I was also mostly peach fuzz until four years old - I can remember my first haircut because it was just before I went to Kindergarten. This 'do is just how it grew. I was a teensy thing playing on one of our many pianos. (My dad rebuilds pianos. We always had two or more in the house.)



And yes, on the left wall (you can't see it) was a giant fishing net with starfish and seashells, as was the norm in the 70s. And a macramé owl plant holder. And Carol King on the turntable. By six years my hair was growing more. My mother would put those soft white rollers with the twist-tie ends on them in my hair so I'd have weetiny curls at the bottom. I remember how much those and the pink sponge-style curlers sucked to sleep in.



I have a story about that girl I'm resting my head on - she was a MONSTER but they were the only kids we played with. Her brother, who was my age, tried to set his house on fire one day and my mom chased him up and down the block and spanked him. Then got a hose and put out the fire. He and I rode our Green Machines up and down the block, so he was cool to me.

Here I am at Easter - I miss getting an Easter dress and the smell of white shoe polish.... This was my long-standing Dorothy Hamill 'do that all girls had in the late 70s/early 80s but fancied up for Easter Sunday - I have wings! (I still have a fear of roller brushes to this day.)



Junior High. *cough* This was a troubled time for me, and my mother was gone, so my dad was left with the duty of getting us three out the door for school. That should tell you everything. My DAD was in charge of my hair and clothes.



So I'm the one on the third from the bottom, aaaaaaaall the way at the end. Yes, with the glasses. Oh, the GLASSES. *cries*



*cries* Me in the blue shirt. I looooooved that shirt. 8th grade with my best bud Jen next to me with bleached hair. We were so New Wave, you guyz. no, no, I need BIGGER frames. (In my defense, this was the age of Sally Jesse Raphael's infamous Red Specs.)

I finally ditched the glasses, got a bob, and started putting copper colored mousse in my hair. ??



I remember holding my hair in my fingers to make it stand up while I blow dried it. With a pound of mouse in it. Pretty! That's better than the Rave 4 my contemporaries were blasting on their perms.... Did someone say perm? Not so fast, Stoney!



This was it grown out, too. My senior year I cut off ALL of my hair (I need to find those pics..) I had loooong hair down to my waist, all one length. With those big ass glasses. Why didn't boys love me? Ahahaha. I cut it off, got little gold round specs and contacts, and for the first three days of my senior year, no one knew who I was. I took some time to reflect on the dangers of the Spiral Perm and went au naturel, as was the style in the early grunge years that were my college days.



There's a theme for me in college: a bandanna or a headband. See?



Me and the BFF - she has an entire photobook filled with nothing but these booth pics. I have GOT to get my hands on that one of these days... When I wasn't playing it straight and simple, I wore wigs. No, seriously. College was all about playing dress up. (Mormon college, remember? When there's no booze or boinking, you have to get creative with your time.)



So technically that's not my actual hair, but I wore that wig a lot. We'd get dolled up and go roller skating to disco music, stuff like that. I still have this wig - I made the Mr. dress up at "The Greatest American Hero" and wear it. Ahahaha. AWESOME. (Side note: that actor, William Katt? He's going to be in this new sci-fi movie that starts filming in a few weeks. Know who else? Freaking ZED from Pulp Fiction. I KNOW.)

Got married and this will be the last time you'll see so much natural blonde in my hair... *sniff*



(Shh, don't tell, but I was five months pregnant in this picture. We had eloped earlier and came home to have a reception.) And I HAVE to post this, because it never fails to bring the LOLz, my mother, at MY wedding reception, in HER wedding dress. "LOOK AT ME!!" Ahahahaha. Wow, what a crazy person.



I divorced, took the babies, and moved home. In addition to losing 280 pounds (har har, that's what my ex weighed. He was 6' 8". BIIIG guy) I lost my long hair, too.



I found my happy and started doing movies. This was my hair for the first one, Blood on the Highway. I freaking love the absurdity of this pic.



It grew out, and instead of having it all one length, I finally started cutting layers, and my headaches went away. (I have a lot of hair.) Who knew?



That's pretty much how I look right now. Well, not right NOW now, because it's back in a ponytail from being outside exercising. This next one is one of the rejects from my head shot photo-shoot. Flat-ironed and blowin' in the wind. I'd had a hair cut prior and the lady hated how much hair I had so she thinned it to make her arms less tired. Uh... thanks? Too flat, imo.




I've been going back and forth with whacking it all off again, but I think I'll keep it long for a while longer. I like long hair on me best. Well, unless I can find someone that will do a spiral perm and shove some massive frames on my face. PRETTY!

I have a house that needs cleaning and no get up and go to do it. Any takers? I'll make you a margarita? It's 80 degrees here today. \o/

What a great meme! Oh, Stoney, you are one stylish mo fo!

Your mom at your wedding! Was she looking to make it a double? Looks like she's got her eyes on a camera man.

I dig the post-divorce 'do! It's so fresh and cute.

The vampire looks so sweet and relaxed. Shouldn't he be a little scared of those talons?

The stylist thinned your hair to make her arms less tired??? WTF?

Rock on, Stoney!

Oh my god, my mother was on her... fifth marriage? She did everything for mine, I just showed up and ate what she planned and wore what she picked out. She's uh... she's a piece of work. :)

Can you stand it with that stylist?! Funny how I never went back...

Your mother wore her wedding dress to your wedding?

Your mother wore her wedding dress to your wedding.

Jesus Christ, what a complete nutjob.

Thought I of course say that with the utmost of respect.

And you look drop dead gorgeous no matter what, which is why I secretely hate you so.

Haven't we talked about this?!?! I mean... it's one of the greatest HOLY SHIT moments of all times!!

Why are you online and not starting to booze it up? Whatever about "it's not even lunch time, Sippy McPukes." It's happy hour somewhere, have I not taught you anything!?!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MY FRIEND!

Let's talk about the Sun-In, Laura, and how that was NOT NATURAL BLONDE. It was a step above the red-tinted mousse, but I still remember you telling me that you used it all the time and that I should, too. HAHAHA! Oh, memories.

I also like that your perm hair is a lot like Nikki's in Big Love, except not wiping your ass long. (I don't remember it being that long before, until you had children. Is there pictorial evidence of this? Was I living in a fog while trying to forget my childhood? I did that a lot.)

Also, your big glasses are completely in style, I don't know why you'd have to clarify with the Sally Jesse. You were AHEAD OF THE TIMES.

mmmm...Sun-In...the exciting product that turned my hair green one summer! Ask Me How!


(er, well, it was the copper pipes providing my shower water that reacted with the Sun-In and meant I had to chop a giant bunch of hair off the back of my head. Yeah, I was hawt.)

Also, your icon is giving me the giggles.

Short-short hair is AMAZING on you. I wish I had the head/face to pull off supershort! Shows off your neck so so well.

Aww, you're so sweet, Angie-boo. Because my head is of Chihuahua proportions, though, I have to be careful with my body size or I look, um, off. :D

I think I'll whack it all off this winter.

Is that picture a classic or what?!? I failed to mention that I was wearing my most prized possession: my silver guitar necklace that I STOLE. Oh, I was such a shameful bad girl back then...

I sympathize with the big glasses had them for a looooooooooooong time.
I also won't mock your perm, because I got a curly perm once and I used Sun-In. I am black do I even have to say how bad that was.
Your nails are trip in the movie pic.
Now though you are seriously a hottie. I bet all the boy's friends harbor secret crushes on you.
I might have to do this meme. Can you say Poetic Justice braids? *headdesk*
stoney321
Mar. 5th, 2009 10:44 pm (UTC)
Oh, a curly perm + your hair + sun in. Bless your heart that took forever to grow out, didn't it? We've all been there! *holds you*

I want to see those braids on you! I bet it's hot. Do the meme, do the meme!!!

I am in endless love with the blue shirt picture, because seriously, it was the 80s and you look GOOD, I think that means you didn't do the 80s right. However! as enraptured as I am with your Sally Jesse!glasses in that pic, it is the FROSTY FROSTY lipstick of the girl on the other end in the acid wash that I am COVETING.

I will also never not boggle at your mom wearing her gettin' hitched dress to YOUR gettin' hitched party. It's out of a script I tells ya.

I cannot for the life of me remember her name, either. I'll have to pull out my junior high pics, which means that I'll have to listen to Depeche Mode and remember how very very Mormon I was and how I longed to be freeeeeeeeee!

I mean, you cannot make that up, amirite??!

(Hahaha, I totally love that picture of the blue shirt. <3)

Good lord, this is giving me flashbacks... Of a kid with the same glasses, only rosy PINK with naturally curly (more like frizzball) hair that never wanted to do anything other than go *POOF!* oh, but I managed to use enough hairspray to plaster my bangs upright.

And at 19, my hair was past my butt long. I could take the ends with each hand, stretch my arms out into a T and say "Look at my wingspan!" Dork. Dork. Dork.

And then, well, I thought nobody could outcrazy my family. Nobody... but...

Your Mom!

Augh!
I'm so sorry.

Awww, you were so adorkable in your huge specs, you New Wave Avenger, you!

I don't have any pics of it, but during the New Wave Hair Revolution (yes, it deserves caitalisation), I had the pinned-back-on-one-side, heavy-curtain-over-the-other-eye hairstyle. And my hair was chin-length all around, too.

Worn with huge-framed glasses. Heh.

Oh, that hair style! I'm fairly certain I did my hair that way, too! We were so rad. ;)

I may have to see about snagging some pictures when I go visit my mom next weekend. Those glasses are making me nostalgic - I had the same ones, only pink. With pink-tinted lenses. (Yes, I looked through rose-tinted glasses, AHAHAHAHAhaha...ha...yeah. That was third grade.)

Also, you so pretty! *hugs*

Oh man, the tinted glasses!! So kewl in the 80s. I had a pair that were tinted when I was in Elementary school, too. GOOD TIMES.

Thanks, sweets!

You are SUCH a good girl for doing the meme. And I think you look better now than you ever had.

Love the blue shirt...
stoney321
Mar. 6th, 2009 09:33 pm (UTC)
I only wanted your approval, DT!! And I agree - I was the very definition of a late bloomer...

(I love that shirt too! I used to wear it buttoned to the top with a big brooch fasted at the neck. STYLIN' and PROFILIN'.)

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
