My Curl History

My Curl History

None of the girls ever wanted to play with my hair. In second grade, I sat, listening to the teacher read a story to our class, and each girl seemed to be paired up--quietly braiding, brushing with their fingers the hair of another. Even I was paired up--with a blonde, straight-haired girl. I ran my little fingers through her glossy hair--smiling at its texture. When it came time to switch, the girl told me, "You can't play with your hair--it's too curly."

Let's talk "Curls"

Let's talk "Curls." Do you have them? I do, and I used to hate them. I've grown to love my curls more over the years, but still had yet to master my hair--until yesterday.

Are you ever "too old" to wear pigtails?

I'm wearing my hair in pigtails today. I'm 25. I do this from time to time, but I started wondering today... is there a societal age limit for certain hair styles? Obviously, I would like to think the answer is "No, fuck that!" But I wonder... I've often told my mom (who is a youthful-looking 60) that she should wear her hair in pigtails, and her response is generally, "What?! No way! I'm too old for that!"
