1980s. Delicate,long hair, tiny perm rods, stubborn hairdresser. Phone call. Forgotten perm solution. 45 minutes later: steelwool hair-do. Bad hair YEAR.ReplyDelete
Great story, K.D., and I think you and I had the same hairdresser in the 80's. Bad year is right! Gah.Delete
Thanks for playing. I'll announce the winner on May 18.
All the years on the farm I wore my hair pretty short. There were no bad or good hair days because it always looked the same...until I let a neighbor cut it. She happened to be mad at her husband that day and, every time she thought of something else that irritated her, she'd lop off another hunk. Fortunately, the only difference between a good haircut and a bad one is about a week :-) More than 25 words, just wanted to share.ReplyDelete
Funny story, Jean. I can just imagine the scene. Why don't you rework it using just 25 words so you can enter!Delete
Two years of planning to make everything perfect, and on The Big Day, my hairdresser was having a kidney stone. No fabulous updo for me.ReplyDelete
Thank you for this prompt--it was fun to play. 25 words is tough! Not as tough as scrambling to find an available hairdresser the morning of your wedding, but still.
Oh, no. That's terrible, Sharon. Good job and thanks for entering. I'll announce the winner on May 18.Delete
High school. My first *real* job, in an office. I let my sister cut my hair. She gave me a feathered mullet.ReplyDelete
Yowza. That would be my luck. Those mullets...Delete
Thanks for playing, dSavannah.
I took in a photo of Jaquelyn Smith (Charlie's Angels) as an example, but came out looking like Little Orphan Annie. Short, curly and frizzy!ReplyDelete
Ha! We all wanted those Charlie's Angels hair cuts. I wanted Farrah's hair but no dice. Thanks, SF.Delete

Had my hair braided into cornrows. Enjoyed the do for a month. After hours of teeth gnashing and begging God it came out in hunks.ReplyDelete
Memories. My daughter had her hair put into beaded cornrows when we were in Jamaica. It lasted a couple of weeks and was really cute, but you're right about taking them out. Agony. Thanks, Rochelle.Delete
Good post however , I was wondering if you could write a litteReplyDelete
more on this subject? I'd be very thankful if you could elaborate a little bit more. Appreciate it!

The contest is to tell about your own bad hair day experience using just 25 words. I'll choose the winner tomorrow night.
And the WINNER is...K.D. McCrite. It was a hard choice and there were several fabulous 25-word stories but I had to choose one.ReplyDelete
Thanks to everyone who participated. Well done. K.D., send me your address. A Bad Hair Day anthology will make its way to you soon. Congrats.
Woo hoo! Thank you. I knew there must have been a reason (or a good side) to enduring that awful hair-do.Delete
And guess what? Our vacation to the East Coast was the following week. I looked lovely, standing there on the beach with steel wool all over my head. What a fright. Thanks again, Beth.
Sorry I missed the contest. ): RoseReplyDelete
