What A Difference a 'Do' Makes!
I like to think of a 'do' in several contexts. 'Doing' a 'do' which activates good intentions and ideas commands my respectful attention and definitely makes a significant difference. That's not the 'do' to which I refer here, as the photo should clarify! This is light-hearted, non-life-changing (shouldn't be!), of minor importance, except when too many 'bad hair days' loom, as happens when the 'frizzies' are a problem with my naturally curly, moisture sensitive, early-graying, progressively thinning mop.
A wonderful hair-do can work magic for any gal, especially one with my genes! OK, - so each, here, is merely a virtual 'do' I could only duplicate with a wig (not my plan); yet fun to visualize via cyber magic! Join me!
Imagining different hairstyles without committing to them is simply such fun!
This zany hub was inspired by Katie Couric's show all about hair, on which opportunities for online try-outs were mentioned. So - why not? I tried them!
And just zany enough to share!
What a transformation!
OK - I haven't had that much hair iN YEARS!. Maybe not that much fun, either! What fun to see that if I did, all kinds of glamour 'dos' could be mine! It's enough to make me think about wigs, except they'd be too hot in the summertime! These days, comfort outweighs vanity any day!
This is my real hair. →
The profile picture I took last week. A poor 'hair day' even for now!
All the more fun to play around and see how it would glam up!
So be aware: this is a fun thing, not intended the least bit serious! Just 'trying on' hairdos and getting laughs from it to share with my friends. May even be an idea for Halloween! I could just add a witch's hat, with or without one of the 'wigs', which admittedly are brassy! Blonde was the gentlest color choice! Even the glaring silver dazzled! I can better appreciated my natural sterling silver!
A favorite glorious song performed by an all-time favorite singer!
( I might be able to achieve his hair style!!)
Which styles work best? Any of them? :-)
~It would take more tools than these to accomplish any of the makeovers!~
I'm amazed how much style #9 reminds me of my daughter!
Ahem - au natural, sans wrinkles!
My daughter's getting a kick from it,
Praises my comedic schtick from it!
Says: "You need the leather mini skirt, crop top halter, with Antonio Bandares on Harley to complete the makeover!"
Thinks I could pull it all off, with the stares,
That I'm a foxy great grandma!
I'm thinking my granny image's crashed,
My dignity's been thoroughly trashed;
If the truth is unvarnished,
My image is tarnished,
And I'm honestly wondering: - who cares?

My hair is fuzzy, I feel frumpy.
My makeup runs, I feel grumpy.
Pantyhose, sticky; I feel icky.
Food, too heavy, I feel sicky.
August in June!
Poison ivy, weeds, seeds, misdeeds,
Humidity, stupidity, cupidity,
Heat, tired feet,
Thunderstorm sweeping the skies.
Boiling tainted water, cooling it, freezing it.
Hay fever, weeds, sinisitis,
Blowing and sneezing it.
Hot air blankets the Earth,
Blasts like a furnace,
For all that it's worth.
Listlessness, apathy, nausea,
Ground that could burn us.
August in June
In the miserable, hot, humid

June, 1971 - Eons ago; same hair; a different life!
To lighten up the mood . . . who better than . . .
Thank you, dear friends for indulging me and letting me indulge my fantasy!
It's fun and silly, but what are friends for, if not to share fun and sometimes even to share silliness? Mhwaaaaaa!
