Misery's hair

 

I have long hair, and in the summer, I want nothing more than to get it UP and OFF my neck!

To get it up and out of my way, I twirl and twist it and clamp it on the back of my head. When my hair eventually dries, I release the clamp, and I have a nice wavy head of hair (even if it's fine and thin!).

As I sit here tonight, the ceiling fan is blowing my hair around, and while I might not reach Misery Chastain status, I've got some tendrils blowing around very nicely. I envision myself standing on a heather-filled hill, the warm breeze blowing my tresses and rippling my diaphanous gown....

Yeah, whatever.

I'll just enjoy the "flowing tresses" for the moment!

i have long hair too and everyone is always telling me i need to get it cut and it will make me look 10 yrs younger. Who cares. I like it long. My old hairdresser used to call me her "80's lady" because everyone else wanted shorter and shorter. I bet you look great with your hair up OR down.

I have long hair too. It's wavy if I dont blow it straight. I should try what you do and not blow it out but put it up wet , see what it looks like.
Have a great day

I used to have a huge pile of hair.  Then something happened; I think I got old :-0. Now it is quite thin. Hate That. I think I have more "tresses" flowing off me than anything else. Next topic!~Mary

My hair is also long, aunurn coloured and very think. Because of the thickness, I keep it braided, but when I set it free, ahh the tresses flow.

I wish I could let my hair grow out from the short cut I have.

I know how you feel about the long hair in the summer. I dont have as long of hair as you but it still is annoying....hugs, Christine

My family says I have a hair fixation and I need to stop obsessing.  Whatever!  My hair is midneck length and it is sticky in summer; really thick and hard to deal with so I put it up which makes me look awful.  Bob likes it long.   I like it short, but I look even worse with short hair than with it tied up in the summer.  So long hair is here to stay.  Did I say I have a hair fetish???

OMGosh you have me cracking up today...My hair has always been thin and straight as a board. I've done the same with it. The last two years I've had it shorter than short classic short pixie, about a 1/2 inch above a buzz cut. The last 6 months I've been growing it out and it's definitely getting longer it's about 3-4 inches now. Talk about hair in the eyes moments. I'm loving it. I missed my long hair. Doc is too (winks)...I imagine by next summer I'll be pulling it up off my next as well. For now I'm enjoying it tickling the back of it and realizing it's finally that long again. (Hugs)Indigo
