This afternoon I had a practice run to find a hairstyle for the wedding......and I was very pleased. To tell the truth, this is the second run through I've had. But this hairstylist gave me exactly what I wanted! I know I'm obsessing about this, normally I don’t really care that much about my hair, but this is one occasion I do care how my hair looks. I went for the total up-do because I’ve never had one, for the following reasons: 1. I’m a child of the 70’s, long and straight was the only hairstyle those days (proms and wedding included); 2. Until recently I had “my twin” growing on the back of my neck which needed to be covered up so as to not frighten young children. So I got to experience the up-do for the first time today and that was fun, however for the wedding, I have made the important decision to go with a modified up-do. I bet you wanted to know that!
After the hair appointment, I made a delivery to Biking Brady to drop off his new “green” lawn mower – a push mower without a motor (whatever you call those). Mrs. Biking Brady and I tried it out for fun, I’m sure I looked great in my up-do pushing around a mower that badly needs some WD40!
After supper I just had to get out and ride a little but I was losing daylight fast, so I hastily changed and got ready to ride. I went to put on my bike helmet and found that it is hard to wear a bike helmet with an up-do. This is probably why my mother’s generation didn’t ride bikes. But I didn’t have time to get the bobby pins out so I smashed on the helmet and rode for about 45 minutes sprinting most of the time.
When I took off my helmet, the hair do was still, for the most part, in place. I think it should hold up well for the wedding!
