The history of runner hair

This is, by far, my favorite hair picture.  I’ve left the other runner in for context.  It was the mid-90s, so I think that explains some things.  Kind of.  I ran cross-country my senior year.  At some point I decided to grow my mop out a bit so that I could put it into a tiny ponytail at the top of my head.  Thank God there are no pics of that.  And still…

I know, ladies.  It’s hard to contain yourselves with all the hotness going on there.  To all of you who ask why I keep my hair so short, I think I need offer no further explanation.

The history of Medusa hair

At some point it appears that we began taking advantage of my awesome hair. Exhibit 1:  The Medusa costume.

My hair was so thick that we were able to thread the rubber snakes onto a wire hanger and insert them into my hair.  They held all day.

The history of cardigan hair

This one is almost too painful to post, but I figure that we all have these pictures, so we’re all laughing together, right?  RIGHT?

I believe I am wearing two layers of shoulder pads in this picture.  It was the first day of school.  It’s 6th or 7th grade, I think.  Wow, good times.

Cathy and I are pretty sure that if we can find the official school picture from this year, I’ll be able to get on Ellen’s “bad paid for photo” segment.  Wish me luck!

The history of biker hair

I think this was the year I decided to go for more of a grown-up Halloween costume.  It might have been a bit of a miss.

I think maybe it’s the hat.

The history of hyper hair

Just for the record, that is a hypercolor shirt tucked into my fluorescent shorts.

And those are my braces.  And some mighty fine shades.
