It is friday and finally I can get back to one of my favorite memes, after 3 weeks away from home and old photos. Photo Friday Flashback is hosted by Alicia from More than Words.
"The grass is always greener on the other side" is a little mind set I have often. I know it is wrong but... I am guilty. I always look thinner in older photos, and it is funny because I remember being at those days when now I think I looked great, and remember thinking I didn´t look good. Girls, I can´t help it!
Shortly after I got married I found a photo from when I was a teen. My hair looked so good I thought. I had it really long and curly, with those loose curls that I liked so much (or at least that was the way I remembered, not really how it was). I had gotten tired of wearing it long and decided to cut it and keep it short (mid length bob) from age 18-19. When I was 20, some weird virus must had come to my brain and I decided to cut it shorter, like a guy really. Don´t ask me why, but I did it. And funny enough, I liked it. I thought it look good.
Well now, I look at photos back then, and believe me. I didn´t look good. Not many people can pull that off. No girl should try to pull it off. But I tried, didn´t succed though.
But now finally my hair had grown again, and it was long, so a perm was what I needed to do.... or so I thought (a perm is another look not everyone should try).
I bug and bug my sister, who used to be a hairstylish into doing a perm to my hair. She didn´t want to. She could do it, she had done my hair before. But I guess she knew better, or knew me better. Or maybe she knew a perm was a mistake. She didn´t want to do it. But after weeks of nagging, she did. (Me nagging btw)
And this was the result.
But the bad hair didn´t end there. Right away I was unhappy. I always kept it held somehow because I didn´t like it. After a month or so I couldn´t handle it any longer.
I was looking for something to do and someone introduced me to curling irons. My mother in law had one so I asked her to make my straight. She did it to herself so I knew she had experience. If I liked it I would buy my own curling iron "pronto". Where was my flat iron back then? I wonder now....
So this happened.
I can´t believe I am sharing this photos with you. You will keep the secret right?
Don´t worry, I didn´t go anywhere. This happend in my in laws house, and there is where it ended. She did what she could. I felt bad to wash my hair, it wasn´t her fault after all. My hair had its own mind and there wasn´t much that I could do about it...... but there was. I went to a hair stylish and had that product put in that reverse the perm curls. A few dollars and a hair cut later, my hair was back to normal.
Hey, at least I didn´t do this.
A photo of my husband and a friend during college days. Thankfully my husband is the one giving the buzz and not the one receiving it. Youth.......
