OK folks, I have a bunch of half-posts bouncing around my brain. Until I finish them or they dissolve into the mists of time, you'll have to be satisfied by a hair post. Inspired by my age-mates, Lori and Jennifer, who did their own great hair posts.
I have had my current hairstyle for nearly 15 years, although now I have long layers whereas before it had been all one length just below my shoulders. I did have a brief short-hair experiment in Bulgaria in 2001, but I grew it out since I found shorter hair to require more product and styling than I was willing to deal with. I rarely even blow it dry.
My hair has always been straight, but since having Shmooie, the hair from my ears down has come in wavy, whereas the top has stayed stick straight. Wonder what's in store for me post-partum Polly. (Photo above is from January. I'm due for my twice-yearly haircut.)
Anyway, here we go. I think these must be first, second, and third grade, although the ponytail one is marked 2nd.
With the option for an occasional bun or braid. (I didn't ask my family members' permission, but the photos tell hair side-stories of their own.)
Internet, are you ready for 1980s awkward age? Here ya go.
Gah. I can still conjure up the stench of perm solution if I think about it. I threw this one in because my siblings look so cute. (Including Michi, exchange sister from Austria who lived with my family my senior year of high school. That's a chocolate pizza she's holding.)
Prom theme song: "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now." Not even Bo Peep in her size-too-small borrowed dress. (Sorry Brian, I guess I should have asked your permission to post, too. And I'm sorry for making you wear a pink cummerbund.)
Onto the perm and winged temples-bangs combo. Always a classic.
All right, I'm tired and need to go to bed, so the college and post-college years are going to have to have their own post. So I leave you with this hott photo of me on the mighty Pinto against a lovely North Dakota backdrop. I learned how to drive stick with the Pinto. Everything else has seemed easy since then.
