Discovering the Friday Five

(Actually, I discovered this site on Wednesday whilst surfing during downtime in the WWDC Exhibit Hall. But I didn't get around to posting the article for a few days, and then it sat as a draft. What can I say?... Pretend.)

The Friday Five for June 20, 2003

  1. Is your hair naturally curly, wavy, or straight? Long or short?
  2. How has your hair changed over your lifetime?
  3. How do your normally wear your hair?
  4. If you could change your hair this minute, what would it look like?
  5. Ever had a hair disaster? What happened?

  1. Is your hair naturally curly, wavy, or straight? Long or short?
    My hair is red, wavy, thick and hits below my shoulder blades when wet, about 2 inches higher when dry. It's got a lot more spring when it dries; It never gets much longer than it is now, just bushier (and I trim it myself). It was actually a lot less curly when it was short. My cats and I compete for who sheds the most, and our vacuum cleaner needs to be carefully taken apart on a regular basis to remove the choking strands.

  2. How has your hair changed over your lifetime?
    I never grew it out till my junior year in high school (I wanted it long for the senior photo) - before that I always had it cut short every June, then it grew through the school year. Except for trimming the ends and the sides, it's been constant since I graduated from H.S.

  3. How do your normally wear your hair?
    Front sides trimmed at an angle, bangs on the forehead. I pull the outer thirds back from the sides and fasten with a Scünci. On hot days I put it up (one braid, twisted under and in).

  4. If you could change your hair this minute, what would it look like?
    It would look exactly the way it does now (just because I could doesn't mean I would). My hair will most likeely stay the way it is until I decide I'm "too old", probably when I'm into my 90's.

  5. Ever had a hair disaster? What happened?
    I grew up in Pennsylvania where the humidity did weird things to my hair... I remember waiting for class one day, listening to two girls groaning about how they had used the curling iron for an hour and the humidity had taken all the curl ut of their hair. Meanwhile, there I was and couldn't even get a comb through mine. I'm not sure this qualifies as a disaster but it's the closest I can recall. The weather where I now live is perfect for my hair.
