Rapunzel's Challenge

A lame excuse of a self-portait in the mirror
I tend to give hair stylists a near heart attack when I pull my hair out of the pony tail. I give hair stylists a cocky smile and say, "I present to thee a challenge" as I sit down in the chair. My hair is thick and long. Did I say thick? Because it's really thick. It also has a mind of its own and rebels whenever I try to style it myself. 

For my friend's wedding, we (the bridal party) all had our hair professionally done for us. I didn't realize how intricate my hair style was until I got home in the evening and took some pictures. All I can say is, 'Wow...' It takes real talent to be able to do hair like this. She even curled each individual loose strand of hair that she purposefully kept out of the updo. Top it all off with some silk dogwood flowers and you have for yourself quite the work of art.

I would never in a million years be able to do something like this.

PS - my hair eats bobby pins for lunch. :P


  1. -swoons- Beautiful hair!!
    I would give almost anything to be able to do my own hair like that. :D
    I can understand the thick part of it, but my hair is short, and I have to do and redo it about five times a day!

    Is a ponytail your standard "do"?

  2. Megan: I roll out of bed in the morning and pull it back into a ponytail. Sometimes I don't even brush it... That's how well I take care of my hair. :P

  3. lol, gotta love that your hair eats bobby pins :D

  4. :D I know the feeling. I think pretty much every time I get my hair cut, the person steps back and says "Wow, you have a LOT of hair!" And then they take a deep breath and resume cutting. lol
