The history of ballerina hair

Yes, this is me.  It’s one of the summers I danced with Jacques d’Amboise.

My hair was so awesome that one of the costuming women accused me of using a fake bun.  Nope.  I just have amazing volume.  Don’t hate me because I’m beautiful.

The history of Charo hair

On a vacation in Hawaii, my family went to Charo’s restaurant.  Oh yeah, and she was there.

Those shorts are super-rad.  Oh yeah.

The history of geisha hair

Something I now for sure is we had some of the best Halloween costumes around.  Not always racially sensitive, but super, awesome.  My parents brought the kimonos directly from Japan.

The hair, that’s all mine, baby.

The history of skiing hair

This is sometime around 1983.  This is what happens when you grow up a mile from a ski resort – in the 80s.

Those are my super-awesome K2 skiis.  (I would later be known as K2 in my legal career.)  For those of you who know my sister, that’s her in the red suit in the background.  We were rad.

The history of hair

I spent a couple of hours today going through old photo albums.  My sister is convinced I can get on the Ellen show with my awesome hair.  I’m pretty sure she’s right.

We had so much fun looking at these pics, that I think I’m going to post one or two each day, just to share the fun.  Enjoy.

This is me and my sister about to perform in a Sun Valley ice show.  I think Scott Hamilton was actually performing as well.  Not kidding.  And yes, I’m aware of how totally inappropriate our costuming is.

Ice show 1983

I know you’re laughing with me, and not at me.  It’s okay.
