“And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.”
“I’m not offended by all the dumb-blonde jokes because I know that I’m not dumb. I also know I’m not blonde”
I’m not sure but I think it was my mother who used to say that our hair was our “Crowning Glory” I never quite got that but I believed that she only said it so I would let comb out all the snarls and tangles in my hair.
But I showed her!
I didn’t let her!
And she showed me!
She cut it all off!
“Hair is vitally personal to children. They weep vigorously when it is cut for the first time; no matter how it grows, bushy, straight or curly, they feel they are being shorn of a part of their personality”
I wasn’t allowed to grow it until I could care for it myself. Eventually, I began to understand what my mother meant about hair. Aside from the obvious fact that is IS hard to take care of (sorry, mom) Your hair frames your face. It is your introduction because it is what people notice first. They notice if it is clean, neat, current and fashionable. A good haircut/style can make your day, boost your confidence and set the mood. A “Bad Hair Day” can set anybody off and a bad haircut can feel like the end of the world.
Things I’ve learned about hair:
It really is your “crowning glory”
Stay with what works for you. If it’s not broke, don’t fix it.
A great hairstylist is a MUST! And I have been fortunate to find one that I love and trust

“I’d luv to kiss ya, but I just washed my hair.”
And, lastly, even though I will stand by my adage of keeping the style that works for you and have done so with some variation for the past 20 years, I want to say…Thank you Farrah Fawcett! Thank you for giving some of us a chance to dream by showing us the true “crowning glory” and allowing some of us to pretend we were you…
The hair is the richest ornament of women. ~Martin Luther
