Get started - this took about 8 weeks of preperation


I received a few compliments on my hair this morning while I was at church. I thought I would follow up by giving a tutorial.

I'm no professional on self portraits. I didn't even think it through enough to pull the shower curtain closed.

Step 1 - Grow a tumor in your knee, stand up, see a doctor, and get surgery.

Step 2 - Decide the days of caring about your appearance are officially over until your walking abilities aren't hampered.

Step 3 - Obtain a husband who travels quite a bit.

Step 4 - Wash your hair two days before you plan to wear this hairstyle. Don't blowdry or straighten it. Let its natural frizz do its thing.

Step 5 - Host a friend's birthday get together that same night. Yap for 8 hours straight and finally kick the last 3 remaining women out of your house at 3:00am.

Step 6 - Wake up after little sleep and decide you have no energy or time to take care of the frizz nest sitting atop your head. Put a hat on and wear it all day long, no matter how itchy it starts to get.

Step 7 - Stay up late that night and watch Tess of the Dubervilles, which will take you forever to get through because you have to continuously rewind the DVD since you can't quite understand what they're saying through their heavy English accents (no subtitles were available).

Step 8 - Wake up late the next morning and realize you have no time to wash, blow dry, or straighten your hat-matted, frizz-nested hair.

Step 9 - Bunch your hair up into a funked up bun, bobby pin it in place, and stare in amazement at the ladies who said they liked your hair.

Emma asked me why I was taking pictures of my gray hair. I sat her down for an impromptu lesson on how genetics work. She'll curse my name when she's about 30.

You know, I meant to comment on your awesome pulled back bun-ish do.

Hmm, seems so simple, even I could screw it up.

Hope the knee is feeling at least a little better.

You are hilarious! I wish I could pull off something that people would compliment! And the grays! Oh...I feel your pain...every 4 weeks I see my friend who takes care of them...but I am considering going every 3 weeks!

When are you going to offer a tutorial of your everyday hairdo? Because honestly, every time I see you, your hair looks great!
