This may have been me at some time in my life. I had so many hair styles or hair do's as my mom used to call them..There were so many ways to roll hair, I found that out from my mom.
I don't think, ( I'm not positive ) that she ever rolled my hair with strips of Rags... But she just about used everything else.
Yeah I know this one looks like it's been through the wringers. She must have kept it outside of a frame for so long it kinda looks frazzled around the edges..This was my second grade picture.. She made sure she would remember it..She wrote it on the picture.. She had rolled my hair with strips of a Brown Paper Bag.. She did quite a good job with what she had to work with..
I think she was to busy to fool with it much with this one..Looks kinda stringy to me.. Of course with so many little ones hanging to her skirt tails it' no wonder .. There it is again, she wrote what grade it was. I think she just about forgot what grade and scribbled through it some before she made up her mind.
By the time I got to this age which I think was about fourth grade, she'd started cutting my hair and as you can see the bangs were quite short.. They always turned out that way but what could I do but wear them until they grew out a little.. She loved cutting it in a Boys Bob, as it was called back then..
This was eighth grade and I had kind of took over the job pretty well by then.. Notice the Boys Bob.. At least the bangs looked a little longer.
This was ninth grade, still a bit frazzled around the edges from all the Boys Bobs but I was quite proud of it, you can tell by the way I stuck my mouth and chin out..
There's alot of difference in these two. The first one which is quite obvious was taken several years ago.. The bottom one is from a year or so back .. Yep, age will do it to you.. One things for sure.. I've come along ways from that little curly or stringy haired girl with her hair being rolled with strips from an old Paper Bag, (or not ) and those small and BIG Rollers and maybe some Bobby Pins thrown in along the way or Electric Rollers to a modern day Curling Iron.. Gosh I wonder how mama would have felt to have a Curling Iron.. Probably been ok with it on my hair but as far back as I can remember she rolled her hair with Bobby Pins or in later years small Rollers. I sure do miss those days and mama rolling my hair.....Blessings, Susie
