Slice of Lime-Going Straight


A little while ago when I went to visit Diana she straightened my hair.  It was a really strange thing to see myself with long, straight hair.  I was kind of shocked how long it really was once the curls were ironed flat.  Some folks really liked it, others not so much.  I thought it was interesting.  I might be persuaded to straighten every now and then for a bit of variety.





Just don't think it means I personally am going to straighten out, because you really ought to know better than that by now.











 And just in case you forget how wild I can get here's my Cousin Itt look.

Ah, Lime! Your beautiful hair, straight or curly l love it.

Jen is just the opposite. Her hair is dead straight. When we were first married, she used to do regular perms in order to achieve what I dubbed the 'brillo pad look'. . .

I think it looks good on you, but so does your regular hairstyle.

My hair is super straight and I hate the way it looks. I've spent the last 37 years using a curling iron to give it some body and shape. Not kidding.

I wish I had curls... I saw a woman on Sunday with her hair up .. a topknot with cascading curls and I was jealous .. sigh .. and no I am not getting a perm

I think you're beautiful either way. For what it's worth, I'd say the bottom photo doesn't look quite so much like Cousin Itt as it does Joey Ramone.

Straight hair looks good on you, now you do seem to be staring at the camera like you about to bite the head off someone.

Just saying.

Your hair is gorgeous no matter the look. But if you really want to try the Cousin It style, put your glasses on over the hair. :)

My favorite thing about wearing my hair straight is the movement. It feels so cool! I turn my head and it keeps moving then swooshes back...
ahhhh yeeeeaaah, that is fun.

I wouldn't trade though, and I am way too lazy to straighten regularly,
so wild and curly it is!

I like how think your hair is. Mine is curly but super thin, and I often straighten it to avoid the frizz. I couldn't do cousin It style if I tried!

I LOVE it--when my hair is straightened, it has such a fun texture compared to real life. I can pretend I'm glamorous. Until I look in the mirror again, of course, and see that I'm still just me, only with straight hair.

I always love your pics. Hey, what's the story with the grid? I see crosshatches, especially on the middle pic. Are you getting artsy?

Rob said...

I'd be thrilled to run my fingers through your hair -- straight or curly! ;-)

I think the cousin it look is sexy!
